Scattershot set of pre-orders from Games Workshop this week. Though their main banner was about the new Warhammer Underworlds set, called Beastgrave - The Grymwatch, I'm most excited about the new Lizardmen Blood Bowl team. Go Pangaea Punishers! *waves little flag with my own team's logo on it* There's also new Blacsktone Fortress sets you can pick up. I did say that it was scattershot after all.
Age of Sigmar_
We're just a day away from my favorite month: Orktober! Games Workshop is wasting no time at all. They've already got a new Battletome for Age of Sigmar available to order for the green brutes (sure, they're calling them "Orruk"s now, but I'm not falling for it) up on their website. Oh, and if you want some puny oomies, they've also got Cities of Sigmar. And, as usual, there's different bundles and editions if you're into that kind of things.
The latest set for Warhammer Underworlds is available to order from Games Workshop. It's called Beastgrave and it's more than just a new set, it's a new core set, giving you new updated rules for Warhammer Underworlds, two full warbands, and all the extras needed to play. You can get just the base set, an "all-in" set, or the various extras like dice, card sleeves, and such along those lines.
There's... just about everything in this announcement. It's a little hard to summarize, since it covers pretty much all of GW's game lines, from Age of Sigmar to 40k and their various spin-offs, as well as the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game. Suffice to say that if you play any GW games, there's something probably in here for you to check out.
A new skirmish game set in the Age of Sigmar universe is coming to you from Games Workshop. It's called Warcry and they're taking pre-orders for it now. Control your gang as you fight against others in a chaotic landscape, looking to curry the favor of Archaon the everchosen. To order, there's starter sets, just the rulebook if you want, and card decks so you can make your forces out of your existing collection of figures.
Also, does anyone else think the feature image there could be a heavy metal album cover?
I know, a really generic headline, but when it comes to typing out all the different things that are available to pre-order this week from Games Workshop, it'd either be a really short headline that gets you to read on, or a large amount of the story would just be up in said headline. Anyway, Games Workshop has a ton of stuff up for pre-order right now. Arguably, the two biggest are the new Battletome: Sylvaneth and Scouring of the Shire books for Age of Sigmar and the Middle-arth Strategy Battle Game, respectively. There's also new figures for both those games, a new elven Blood Bowl team, new sets for Adeptus Titanicus, 40k, and pretty much everything else you can think of. There's terrain. There's dice. There's... I mean, I told you it was a lot of stuff.
Well, that's a kit that's been around for quite some time mostly unchanged. It's the Leman Russ. Games Workshop has retooled the old Imperial Guard mainstay. There's also a new Warhammer Underworlds deck called Power Unbound. Both of these are available to pre-order now from their website.
Big pre-order week for Games Workshop this week. Primarily, they've got the 2019 General's Handbook for Age of Sigmar. Those that want to be up-to-date with the rules will want to check it out. There's also a host of Lord of the Rings releases, including Radagast the Brown. Finally, the latest issue of White Dwarf is available to order. And, right there on the cover, a white dwarf. Seems fitting.
Age of Sigmar has a new book available to order. It's called Soul Wars: Forbidden Power, and it pushes forward the Age of Sigmar lore. Giant vaults filled with unimaginable power have been revealed. Of course, everyone and their cousin are trying to get to those vaults first. This new book has a little something for everyone. Along with the book and sets, there's a whole ton of terrain pieces as well. This almost went in today's Terrain Corner post.
This new 2-player starter for Age of Sigmar has a whole ton of Squigs in it. I might get it just for that. Anyway, Looncurse pits gobbers and their squigs versus the undead. It's got everything you and a friend need to get gaming right away.
If you want my body and you think I'm sexy, come on baby, let me know.
That's the music of choice for Slaanesh as they hit the battlefield. The Hedonites of Slaanesh book, as well as a host of new figures are now available to order for Age of Sigmar over on the Games Workshop website.
There's just a ton of stuff over in Games Workshop's pre-order page right now. Some of it is still from last week, including the various Chaos figures they had. But there's also plenty of new things, like new Nightvault expansions, a whole bunch of figures for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, and some returning items that are getting another release, like a book for said Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game and Adeptus Titanicus.
It's a little bit fantasy. It's a little bit sci-fi over at Games Workshop this week for their new releases. The bigger of the two in terms of scale is a new Battletome for Age of Sigmar. It's the Fyreslayers, dwarves with fire-orange hair and beards that don't like the idea of shirts. There's also new figures to go along with the release. But GW is still working on more Chaos Marine releases as well, if you were also hoping to keep adding to your collection there.
In The Great Patch, the city of Anvalor stands. Besieged on all sides, different factions are looking to rebuild the stronghold and keep the enemy at bay. However, each faction also wants the city for themselves. In the end, only one will rule. Who will it be? That's the story behind The Rise and Fall of Anvalor, a new board game set in the Age of Sigmar world. You can pick up your copies now.
Adepticon is happening up in Chicago. I hope everyone that's there and reading this will head to Portillo's for me at least once. Italian Beef (dipped), Polish sausage (Maxwell Street Style), and a Hot Tamale. If you're not there, then you've not had a chance to see all the previews that Games Workshop has going on. So, while I can't give you a good meal through this format, I can give you those previews.
Fall into me, the sky's crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone
There's a new Battletome up for order from Games Workshop for Age of Sigmar. It's for Khorne, and along with it, there's several new Khorne kits to order.
GAMA is going on this week in Reno (security provided by Lt. Dangle). Of course, companies are showing off their latest and greatest things, as well as giving us a look at what they're coming out with for the rest of the year. Games Workshop has a lot going on, from a new skirmish game to more expansions and variants for their current games. Have yourselves a look.
The enemy of my enemy can also be my enemy. In The Rise & Fall of Anvalor, players must work together... sort of... to protect the city from the rampaging hordes. However, everyone wants the city for themselves, and at the end of the game, only one group can fully control the city. So, while you look to build your resources, you must also try and keep your opponents/allies from doing the same. WizKids has posted up a new preview of this board game coming out next month.
There's a lot going on for you today from Games Workshop. If you're a fan of Age of Sigmar, there's a new starter set out which gives you Skaven vs. the Flesh-eater Court (rats and vampires... you'd think they'd get along better...). There's a couple extra sets for that as well, including dice (#NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice). On the sci-fi side of things, there's several new releases for the Genestealer Cults for Warhammer 40k. No dice, though.
3-day weekend Fridaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Dice mail Fridaaaaaaaay! (expect more on that in the upcoming days)
Woo! *runs around until I see a platter with some bite-sized gaming stories on it, and comes over to chow down*
Today we have: Stormhost Heads Available to Order From Forge World and Sinister Fish Games Opens Pre-Orders for Villagers and the Removable Sticker Set for Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles.
Last week, Games Workshop came out with a new codex for the gobbers of Age of Sigmar. Along with that, they had the first wave of minis. This week, they continue with that with even more gobbers, even more squigs, and they threw in some trolls for good measure. Have yourselves a look.
The stronghold at Anvalor has been hotly contested ever since its inception. Even while building was happening, various factions would vie for control of it. But when the structure is completed, which group will be granted control of the citadel? That's up to you to decide in Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: The Rise and Fall of Anvalor, a new board game coming from WizKids and Games Workshop.
Well don't go out tonight, for it's bound to take your life.
There's a bad moon on the rise.
And it'll be here in about a week. Games Workshop is taking orders for a new Battletome for Age of Sigmar. This one's for the Gloomspite Gitz. These grots are masters of herding squigs and are ready to make their way across the battlefield.
The forces of Chaos can be found all over Games Workshop's product lines. The demons and beasts of chaos have been fighting against humanity for millennia. And with the Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture set, you not only get a bunch of Khorne and Slaanesh figures, but the rules to use them in both Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar.
There's a holiday feeling in the air over at Games Workshop. They've got a whole bunch of bundle deals for 40k as well as Age of Sigmar they're taking orders for. Along with that, they've got a new Blood Bowl team with a decidedly Halloween feel to them.
