New Adeptus Mechanics Rules Posted

Game designers aren’t infallible. Sometimes, they come up with rules that don’t quite work out. They’re human. It happens to all of us. What’s best, though, is to learn from your mistakes and fix them. Well, the original Adeptus Mechanicus rules weren’t quite what people were looking for, so the Forge World team gave them an update. You can check them out now.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Imperial Knights Codex

If you know me, you know I love giant robots.

Forge World Taking Orders For Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill

Continue reading

New Drukhari Codex Available to Order From Games Workshop

The Drukhari are what the Dark Eldar are apparently being called these days. I have to say, it certainly sounds more interesting of a name than just Dark Eldar.

There’s also the data cards you can pick up as well, plus some various force bundles.

Forge World expands their selection of minis for the Hobbit miniatures game this week. One is that they’ve got the newest set of their Nazgul.

Games Workshop Previews From Adepticon

Adepticon is the place for miniatures games. Pretty much every gamer knows that. The event is 4 days of tourneys and events. It’s also a place where miniatures companies make announcements about what they’re coming out with for the year. Arguably the biggest there is Games Workshop’s announcements.

Forgebane Box Set Available to Order From Games Workshop

I feel like we should be listening to Anvil – Metal on Metal when typing up and reading this post.
In the grimdark future of the 41st millennium, the soft, fleshy, biological form is seen by many as old and outdated. Why have bones that can break and are hard to replace when you can just have carbon fiber? Why have a fleshy meat-brain that can get old and deteriorate as opposed to a solid-state hard drive? Both the Adeptus Mechanus and the Necrons have both decided that trading out organic compounds for technological constructs is best. And these two group are facing off in the Forgebane box set, now available to pre-order.

Well, we finally made it to Friday. Seemed to take its dear, sweet time. I’m certainly ready for the weekend. It’s Board Game Day up at the library tomorrow. I’m gonna try and stop by and see what’s shakin’. I’m also going to be hitting F5 on the FedEx tracking site today as I wait for my package to be delivered. Because that’s just how things are. So, while I try and make sure I don’t totally break my keyboard, let’s get to some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Kraken Dice Weekend St. Patrick’s Sale Happening Now, New Escher Weapon Sets Available to Order From Forge World, and Free Gipsy Danger added to Pacific Rim Extinction.

Midweek Snippets

The week’s half over. We’ve made it this far, we can make it the rest of the way. But as we keep on keepin’ on, we’ll need to have enough energy to finish the journey. For that, I suggest noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories.

New T’au Codex Available To Order From Games Workshop

You know, I remember when the Tau first came out. The joke was that their battlecry was, “AH! Not the face! *cowers and covers face*” Mostly because they were one of the better ranged threats in the game, but couldn’t quite handle melee so well. It’s been a while since I played 40k, so I don’t know if that’s still the case or not. Maybe this new Codex makes them a melee powerhouse. You’ll have to order yours to find out.
