The fun thing about having Monday off is that it only kinda feels like Tuesday, but it's already Wednesday. Whee!
That means that it's time to snack on some bite-sized gaming stories as we make our way quickly back to the weekend.
Today on the platter we have: New Panhuman Head Packs Available From Warlord Games, Precision Aircraft Aluminum Dice Coming from Kraken Dice, and New Chaos Legionary Shoulderpads Available From Kromlech.
Drones are quickly becoming an everyday part of life here in the modern age. You can see them buzzing around most downtown areas as well as being used for reconnaisance and other military uses. In Beyond the Gates of Antares, they're an everyday part of battlefield life. There's some new drone swarms available for the NuHu faction over on Warlord Games' website.
It's a real shotgun blast of releases coming from Warlord Games today. There's a pair of new releases for Blood Red Skies. Bolt Action is also getting some action with a few Belgian releases. Pike & Shotte gets their first release in quite some time with a Swedish Field Commander. Even Beyond the Gates of Antares has some new figures.
Warlord Games has some WWII, Weird War II, and Sci-Fi new releases this week for Bolt Action, Konflikt '47, and Beyond the Gates of Antares. So, whether you like your historical miniatures games actually historically accurate or not, or just want to blast off for the deepest reaches of space, they've got you covered. Let's take a look at some more specifics.
Warlord Games is heading to the lands of sci-fi and WWII in this set of releases and pre-orders. They've got some new Beyond the Gates of Antares kits, as well as some Blood Red Skies and Cruel Seas. Have yourself a look-see.
Lots going on over at Warlord Games this week. While Bolt Action might have the spotlight, with a new Campaign book in the form of Battle of France, along with French and German pre-relases, Beyond the Gates of Antares is in there as well with a pair of new units. Not to be left out, Konflikt '47 has some new Italians hitting the field.
Warlord Games is headed to the fields of WWII as well as two different sections of space with this set of pre-orders and releases available over on their website. First, it's to Belgium for some Bolt Action releases. After that, they hit deep space for some Beyond the Gates of Antares kits. Finally, they come back to the year 2000AD with some Strondium Dog.
Kinda two ends of the spectrum for this week's Warlord Games releases. On the one side, we've got some new Beyond the Gates of Antares releases, including the new Boromite Rock Brood, which I think are just insanely cute. On the other side, we've got new Hail Caesar releases which include new Norman and Viking leadership packs.
Warlord Games certainly doesn't skimp when it comes to new releases hitting their shelves. There's two pre-orders for Strontium Dog, a new unit for Bolt Action, and four Beyond the Gates of Antares kits to go over. So let's not waste any more time.
The Virai are the latest faction for Beyond the Gates of Antares. So they've got a little catching-up to do in terms of unit numbers. Warlord Games is looking to fix that, as there's several new sets you can order from them now. Gotta pump up those numbers. Those are bio numbers.
The Virai are the latest threat to make its way into human space in Beyond the Gates of Antares. These mechanical creatures are unlike anything else in the galaxy, and their relentless push forward will challenge the defenses of anyone they come across. New Dronescourge units are available to order now.
The latest faction for Beyond the Gates of Antares is hitting tabletops. They're the Virai, and they're very different from the other factions already out there. Not altered humans, they're an entirely artificial form of life. All those drones the other factions use are nothing compared to the creations of the Virai.
Warlord Games has a whole bunch of new releases they're taking orders for for Beyond the Gates of Antares, their sci-fi miniatures wargame. They've got a starter set for their newest faction, the Virai. They've got a new supplement in the form of the Dronescourge Returns book. And the Algoryn, C3, and Freeborn also have new kits coming their way.
Sort of a slow week for Warlord Games. Though, to be fair, with Salute and such, let alone the break-neck pace they were going at, they were bound to have a slower week at some point. This time around, they've got a new Japanese tank destroyer for Bolt Action and are now selling individual troopers for the Isorian Phase Squad for Beyond the Gates of Antares.
There's a whole bunch of new things either available or coming soon from Warlord Games. They've got a new faction coming for Beyond the Gates of Antares in the form of the Virai, along with a new starter set for the Ghar. Then, over in Bolt Action, the US forces have a new Heavy Mortar Team and Jeep. Finally, the Landsknects are the focus for a trio of releases for Pike & Shotte. Have yourself a look.
The Isorians love their drone technology. They use it a bit of everywhere. With these new releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares, they're getting a pair of big drone fliers. But that's not all. They've also got a speeder bike unit rushing to battle. Finally, both the Freeborn and Algoryn forces are getting new sprues.
Beyond the Gates of Antares lets Warlord Games, who usually does a lot of historical miniatures, let their hair down a bit, so to speak, and do something really out-there with sci-fi weaponry and vehicles. In this case, there's a new Concord C3D2 Medium Support Drone, as well as a pair of heavy weapon crews for the Freeborn.
Sometimes, you just need a bigger gun. The enemy's advancing with columns of troops or heavy armor. Or you're laying siege to an enemy city and need to break through their reinforced walls. Whatever the case, anything hand-held just won't do it. So you bring out something like the Boromite heavy support team with Mag Mortar. Yeah, that should do it.
I know many of you out there would love to break into the world of gaming. It's not easy. There's not a ton of jobs out there to be had, and when one shows up, a lot of people tend to apply. But you never know, you might be just the gamer that Warlord is looking for. They're on the hunt for an artist to help with Beyond the Gates of Antares, as well as a UK & EU Events Coordinator.
Warlord Games is bringing in the new year with a bang... a really big bang... like, a ground-shaking bang. They've got their new Algoryn AI Heavy Support Team with X-Howitzer now available for Beyond the Gates of Antares. Make sure it's a great new year for you, and the last one for your enemies.
It's a two-fer of Beyond the Gates of Antares news bits today. The first is that there's a new Boromite Hauler available over in the Warlord Games Webshop. The other is that they've posted up a free download of the rules. This primer, called Antares Base One, will give you the rules overview, as well as a look at the different force lists available. If you've been thinking of checking out the game, but wanted to see how it all works first, this is the perfect opportunity for that.
The Ghar might be diminutive on their own, but they compensate on the battlefield by making exoskeletons and walkers that they pilot into battle. That's what you've got here with the hew Ghar releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares. But it's not just the little fellas hitting the field. There's also the new Hükk Bounty Hunter.
Warlord Games is making their way through their 10th year as a company. They've come a long way since they started out. One of their more-recent games is Beyond the Gates of Antares. We're seeing regular releases for the game, and now that their website's articles are starting to flow again (after a nasty cyber attack rendered them unusable for a while), we're seeing the new releases coming to their shop.
There is no "i" in team. But there is a "we" in weapon. In this case, both the Freeborn and the Boromites are getting themselves some new heavy weapons crews with which they look to punch giant holes in the enemy forces.
Sometimes you just gotta bring out the big guns. Enemy armor or fortifications need to be blown to smithereens and your regular hand-held piece just won't do it. So you call in the artillery. That's what we've got with these new releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares. The Isorians have two new floating artillery pieces (must not have much of a kickback) and the Freeborns get one.
