Games Workshop is releasing new Empire models and rules for Warhammer Fantasy. They have included 360s of models on their website too.

From their announcement:

At the very heart of the Warhammer world lies the Empire, the largest and most powerful of all the realms of Men. Beneath the resplendent banners of the Elector Counts march vast armies of proud warriors, every one of them ready to live, fight, and die for the glory of the Empire. It is these brave soldiers that defend the Empire from attack - from brutal hordes of Orcs, the shambling monsters of the Vampire Counts, and the endless legions of Chaos. With mighty war machines, regiments of stoic troops, the armoured might of thousands of knights, and the raw power of magic, the Empire has defeated countless foes a thousand times over.

We fight for Karl Franz and the glory of the Empire!

The armies of the Empire are an eclectic mix of warriors at the best of times, ranging from the unwashed common soldiery to the aloof Elector Counts. Your basic warriors, the State Troops, are professional soldiers, and for the most part they fight because the pay is good. Many of them will die on the field of battle, but this is nothing to be afraid of - there are plenty more civilians to take their places. Meanwhile, the nobility can do what they do best: charge into battle on mighty steeds, dispatch their foes with casual distain, and twirl their moustaches as the enemy flees into the distance. It's a glorious life.

Fantasy Flight Games posts a preview article on army building in Dust Warfare.

From their site:

In the upcoming Dust Warfare, armies clash for supremacy on the battlefields of an alternate reality where World War II continues. However, before you command your forces in battle, you’ll need to assemble an army using the versatile army lists included in the Dust Warfare: Core Rulebook.

One of the many appeals of Dust Warfare is the amount of control and customization you have over your forces. This game features a dynamic army building system that uses platoons, small and flexible groups of units and support vehicles that can be customized to complete any mission. In this preview, we’ll look more closely at the process of creating and equipping an Allied army list. We’ll focus on an Axis army list in a future article.

Fantasy Flight Games previews their new game, Infiltration, the upcoming card game of futuristic larceny.

From their preview:

It is the future, and beneath the flickering glow of the sprawling New Angeles skyline, immense corporations seek every advantage in the burgeoning field of synthetic humanoid technology. On the brink of a revolutionary innovation, CyberSolutions Inc. is poised to become the next global powerhouse, threatening the profits of well-established conglomerates Haas-Bioroid and Jinteki. But unfortunately for CyberSolutions, security at their New Angeles branch has just been compromised.

In January, we announced the upcoming release of Infiltration, a card game designed by Donald X. Vaccarino (Dominion, Kingdom Builder) and set in the dystopian future of Android. In this tense card game of futuristic larceny, two to six players take the roles of thieves, pushing their luck to the breaking point as they venture ever farther into a highly secured corporate facility. The most vital information lies deep within the complex, but with corporate security mercs on the way, each step inward narrows all hopes of escape.

Note the suspension system which allows you to raise the vehicle higher off the ground, these two are in “low” and “Medium” ride-height, you can really “stilt” the vehicle if you want to.

This version houses the standard TIP cannon which is controlled form inside the vehicle and can be lowered/raised over terrain, later versions have an alternative hatch with 3-barrel rail-gun (and gunner), and a couple of auto-turret options. These will be Interchangeable with the TIP cannon, so if you don’t glue it in place (use am magnet) you will be able to swap-out the different systems at will.

An ancient and revered design, cited by the Codex Astartes as a spiritual mentor, no less, there are almost as many patterns of Predator as there are of the ubiquitous Rhino hull it is based upon.
