Gotta take this weekend to relax a bit and get those last few things ready before heading to the show in the middle of next week.

But that’s as may be. At the moment, we’ve got some more bite-sized stories for you.

In this batch we’ve got: New Pathfinder PC SoundSets from Syrinscape and Another Warthrone approved army list: Legions of Khorne from Warhammer.

This month a new character for both Arena Deathmatch and Warthrone.
Carrying on with the new dynamic-posed Arena specific releases, this new Dwarf Runemaster is in a close combat pose wielding his runic staff. Although they prefer attacking the enemy through the magical power imbued in their runes, these priests of Tyr are also expert fighters for they are trained from youth in close combat using the dwarven rune staff.

For Warthrone, a new character for Dark Elves, a Naga Queen. Nagas are at the very top of the Banir society, where they are worshiped as the purest beings of their race. Every Naga is personally chosen and created by Nemesis herself, from the strongest and deadliest of her followers. Those Dark Elves who are chosen, must pass a series of terrifying tests to become a Naga… those that fail are transformed into horrid forms, the Forsaken of Nemesis.
