Year 2010


Bolt Action Fallschirmjager Support Packs available

Warlord Games now have support packs for their 28mm Bolt Action Fallschirmjager figures.



From their announcement:
The Fallschirmjager (German Airborne troops) performed the first airborne invasion when they assaulted Denmark on the 9 April 1940. They followed this success up with further successful air landings of Norway and the pyrrhic victory of Operation Mercury in taking Crete.

Ensure your German troops are well equipped with Warlord Games' range of support packs, including the 81mm mortar and MG 42.

As the old adage goes "Soldiers find things...". True to form, the Bolt Action Fallschirmjager with Looted Weapons have...ahem...liberated some arms from their defeated enemies.

All of these support packs are now available to order from the Warlord Games Webstore, or on the shelves of your nearest quality independent games store.

New Web of Spiderman previews posted

WizKids have posted a series of new previews from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix Web of Spiderman set From their website:
In my post last week, I showed off two new figs from Web, Cardiac and Carnage.  Given the fantastic reaction that I received on FaceBook and through email, I think we chose two good figs to start off the previews.  How do you top those two figures?  Well, today, I’m going to show you FOUR figures. Why show you four figures?  Today’s preview article (and I hope the others that I write as well) is intended to give you a look through our eyes as we create a HeroClix set from the ground up.  Last week, I illustrated how a set’s theme is selected, and the "blue sky" thought-process that goes into initial set design.  Once we arrive at a theme, a new set of challenges and opportunities await the design team.  We know what theme we want to explore, but we need to make the setlist sing.

Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codex clarification posted

Games Workshop have used their What's new blog to post a clarification on their recently released 40K Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codexs. Emphasis below was added by TGN. From their website:
We recently made the Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codexes available to download as PDFs. Since then, we've received a spate of emails asking questions about the difference between the PDFs and the original, printed copies. Rather than reply to you all individually, I thought I'd try to answer your questions here. Firstly, the rules for allied Space Marines and Inducted Imperial Guard were originally written to reference books that have since gone out of print, so we streamlined the rules required to allow players to collect an army of Daemonhunters or Witch Hunters. The Daemonhunters army list uses the Standard Force Organisation chart, which you'll find on page 87 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. The other point that seems to be causing the most confusion is whether or not the PDF versions supersede the printed versions. They don't: you should feel free to continue to use whatever resources you have available to play your games with; the PDF does not overrule or invalidate the printed Codex book. Yes, this may mean that you and your opponent are using what are essentially different army lists for the same army but not every Inquisition force will comprise of the same elements (highly specialised and secretive forces that they are). And if you'd rather use the same one as your opponent, why not simply decide which version you collectively want to use and share the rules between one another? As for tournaments and gaming events, it's entirely up to the organisers to decide which version to use; it is after all their event.
