Hordes Warpwolf Stalker preview

Privateer Press have posted a preview of the Circle Warpwolf Stalker Warbeast. From their website:
The druids of the Circle Orboros have continued to experiment with the forbidden processes by which they transform men into the terrifying warpwolves. Volunteers chosen for the keenness of their minds as well as their strength in battle are candidates for the altered rites that produce the warpwolf stalker. Unlike their totally animalistic kin, the stalkers retain a more than animal cunning. They prowl the dense foliage of the Immoren forests, stalking their unsuspecting prey before leaping out to deliver powerful killing blows in a berserk frenzy.

Tabletop Insider 03 now available

Issue 3 of the German gaming magazine Tabletop Insider is now available. xTTI03_p48-49_UnchartedSeas.jpg From their announcement:
Tabletop Insider started in spring 2009 as the first and only independent tabletop-games and miniatures magazine in Germany. Run by hobby enthusiasts, we now published our third stand alone issue (we covered tabletop content before in Germany’s number 1 roleplaying games magazine Mephisto). Though we faced some delays releasing the new magazine, we are pretty proud of what we could accomplish here – keeping in mind that this print-only magazine is not edited by any big company using a vast budget to facilitate their range of miniatures and games, but by fans in their free-time. Our readers will find an extra 16 pages and a free plastic sprue in the latest incarnation of Tabletop Insider. Of course Tabletop Insider is a German magazine we thought it could be interesting to share the news anyway. What you’ll find in TTI03:
  • an unflattered Planetstrike game report where Black Templars oppose Chaos Demons,
  • a Warmachine campaign with three special scenarios,
  • an artist portrait of Roman Jarhead Lappat including a step-by-step painting tutorial,
  • an impressing Cygnar army feature
  • extensive game reviews of Malifaux and Uncharted Seas.
Furthermore we provide another two painting tutorials, we publish a complete tournament list in cooperation with T3 and have previews of the Horus Heresy boardgame and upcoming Starcraft II computer game, where we were able to receive a beta-test account. Within our news section we focus on information and reviews for all the latest and upcoming games, miniatures and companies. So you’ll find a lot of smaller companies within our pages.
