Games Workshop is looking to be all-inclusive with this week’s set of releases. There’s new Nurgle releases for 40k. There’s a bunch of new box sets for Age of Sigmar, as well as a campaign system. There’s even a pair of Hobbit releases. Let’s take a look....

One of the games that’s been around seemingly forever is Warhammer 40k. Hell, for most of you reading this, it might as well have been around forever, since it’s probably older than you are. To celebrate 30 years of the game, Games workshop has created a commemorative Primaris Space Marin...

Time and again I’ve said how much I love the 2-player starter box. Well, Games Workshop is the undisputed rulers of coming out with them for their games. They have a new Age of Sigmar set coming out. It pits the righteous and true Stormcast Eternals versus the putrid and fetid forces of Nurgle....

Games Workshop is looking to make sure that Age of Sigmar is well-supported on their end. To do that, they are coming out with the 2017 General’s Handbook. This book gives players multiple ways to play the game, as well as updating the various rules from previous editions. It’s available ...

I am a greenskin. Deep down, the WAAAGH!! flows through my veins. Gork and Mork are my deities of choice. So, when I see that Forge World has started taking orders for a new Rogue Idol miniature, I’m certainly interested....

Age of Sigmar really took of when the General’s Handbook came out. The updated warscrolls, with points, as well as the three modes of play really gave players a lot of options. Well, Games Workshop has announced they’re coming out with General’s Handbook 2017, which will update and ...

Well, you’ve had the new 40k set for a couple weeks now. I’m sure you’re all just so tired of that and want to get back to the Fantasy side of things… or not. But if you’ve been playing 8th Edition and had someone go, “do they make it with, like, wizards and chario...

You know, as I’ve gone on in my gaming career, I’ve more-and-more found myself drawn to skirmish games. Not that I think there’s anything inherently bad or wrong with large-army games. They’re just not really for me, anymore. So when I see that Games Workshop has started takin...

Some people see rats as pests. Others see them as pets. Still others see them as a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield or pitch. That last group are Ratling players. They should be excited about a new Star Player for Blood Bowl and a Verminlord for Age of Sigmar being available to […]...

I was over at the LGS the other day, picking up some minis, and happened to watch several games of Age of Sigmar. One guy was using the new Kharadron Overlords. I have to admit, steampunk-style dwarves are pretty cool. If you’ve got a force, or are thinking of starting one, Games Workshop’...

You know, when you normally think of dwarves, you think of them down in some mountain keep somewhere. You might not think to look up and see them floating overhead. But that’s just what they’re doing in Age of Sigmar, and you can order the new Kharadron Overlords airship, along with some ...

Blood for the blood god! Even if you’re not a regular GW-player, there’s a good chance you know that call to arms. Khorne, the Chaos god, is fairly well known for the battle cry of his followers. And those followers are getting bolstered in Age of Sigmar by a new Battletome and set of War...

I really wish I was at GAMA. Yesterday we had quite a few really important announcements. Of course, those weren’t the only ones made at the show. Games Workshop also had a couple of announcements. One’s in the form of a steampunk-esque Dwarf faction for Age of Sigmar. The other is for a ...

Games Workshop has been expanding out their board game lines as of late. But other than maybe some special shoulder pads or something, none have really gotten big, full expansions. That’s not the case anymore, as Warhammer Quest is getting the Shadows over Hammerhal. There’s also some new...

We’re making our way there, ladies and gentlemen. The previous weekend is as far from us as the next one is to us. Have you started getting together any plans? We’ve got the gaming day at the library coming up this weekend. Gonna hang out and play some Guild Ball and hopefully Fujian Trad...

The Stormcast Eternals are getting a bunch of new releases over on the Games Workshop website. These defenders of order versus the seemingly unending waves of Chaos are getting a new Order Battletome book as well as 7 new units. That includes the Gryph-Hounds, who look like they just want to be pette...

Ah, Saturday. Don’t know about you, but I’m going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I’m gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I’m trying to get ...

Just about every day I see someone posting about the new Blood Bowl set. I really have been meaning to pick it up. I’ve just never gotten the chance. Perhaps this weekend. We’ll see. If you do have it and are looking to add a new Star Player to your lineup, Forge World has one […]...

The forces of Chaos are relentless in their war against the mortal realms. They have vowed to not stop until the world all around them matches their home of twisting, shifting, changing landscapes. There’s one group that excels in twisting reality to their whim. They are the followers of Tzeent...

This time of year, there’s lots of talk about elves helping out in Santa’s workshop. There’s also talk of rats, if you’re a fan of ballet. So it seems fitting that Games Workshop would be releasing a new box set for Age of Sigmar that features their versions of elves and rats ...

Two rather opposite ends of the spectrum for the couple releases available from Forge World this week. But, if you’re a fan of really big models, you’re in for a treat. That’s because they have the new Acastus Knight Porphyrion as well as a new Bloodthirster....

Never suffer the witch to live. So the saying goes. But you gotta find those witches. What we need is a Witchfinder. Thankfully, Games Workshop is here to supply us with one. They’re taking orders for the new Lord-Veritant for Age of Sigmar....

Much of the time, Forge World focuses on the sci-fi half of Games Workshop’s catalog. We get new marine transports or some new Primarch. But this week they’re heading to the Age of Sigmar side of things. Now, I didn’t know that there were cyclopian lizard-men in the world, but I kno...

It’s hot outside, folks. Be sure you’re drinking plenty of water and getting in from out of the heat for a while. And to even add more to cooling off, why not imagine you’re on some wind-swept, snowy plane? Games Workshop is here to help with that last bit by taking pre-orders for t...

It’s been a while since Forge World has gone for the Fantasy side of things. Usually, we’re getting new Horus Heresy characters or giant robots (not that I mind giant robots, of course). But this time around, they’ve got something new to order for Age of Sigmar. They’ve got a ...

They are the Sylvaneth. They speak for the trees. Mostly because a lot of them are trees. Or, at least, they’re partially-trees. You know, dryads and other things like that. And they’re certainly marching to war with a whole bunch of new releases over in the Games Workshop webshop....

Orks! Orks! Orks! Orks! Back at my old LGS in St. Louis, they’d hold quarterly used gaming auctions. The miniatures day ones always ran long. I remember it being 3am or so, with still plenty of items yet to go, Dave (the auctioneer and owner of the shop) would just hold up some Orks and [&helli...
