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.

Yesterday tried to take a while. It really did. The first half of the day, I remember going, "Wait, it's not even 9 yet?" However, things eventually picked up. I hope your Wednesday was good, too. Now we're here at Weekend Eve Eve. I'm still pumped for the weekend. Got D&D coming up. Hopefully you have some gaming planned. But even if you don't, we need to get your gaming table looking good. Quick TC today, so let's get to it.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Miner's Guild Pitch Available From Deep-Cut Studio

The American Football Season is underway. While they're hitting the gridiron in stadiums all over the US, you can be doing the same in your LGS. And if you're looking to expand to a new team, you don't have to go any further than RN Estudio, who have a new Amphibian team available in their website.

Lots of Guild Ball news coming from NOVA Open over the weekend. Steamforged was there and they had a lot to talk about. There's some new resin teams for the classic Guilds, as well as the announcement of some new Captains as well as a new Minor Guild, the Shepherd's Guild. Have a look for yourself.

And we're at the end. The last of the new Rookies is up for preview over on the Steamforged Games site. So, if you're wanting to know what your newest Guild Ball player can do before you buy them, now's your time to do just that. Let's head over to the Mason's Guild and check out Champ.

Another day, another Rookie preview. This time around, it's Nomad for the Engineer's Guild. What does the new steampunk player look like? Well, let's take ourselves a look.

*amazing bass riffs*

Wait, wrong Flea. This one isn't a musician/actor, they're a Guild Ball player, and we get a look at him in this preview. If you're looking to add to your Brewer's Guild team (they have sort of gone through a fluff-culling lately), you might want to check him out.

While you can go get your pre-order on for the latest set of rookies for Guild Ball, not all of their stats have been released yet. So, if, for example, you're wanting to know how Kami works, up until reading below, you'd have to order her blind. But we're not into that kind of thing here at TGN. So, let's get you a bit of a preview.

A rookie can add new life to a team. That's what all the Guilds in Guild Ball are hoping to achieve with the Free Cities Draft that happened. The first of those rookies are available, but the second wave is not far behind. If you're looking to pick up Kami, Nomad, Chap, or Flea (bass not included), you can get your name on the list to get them now.

The American Football Season is just around the corner. What team will you be cheering for on the gridiron? And what team will you be bringing to your own gridiron? Well, if you're looking for a new one, Willy Miniatures is running a Kickstarter to update their Lords of Corruption team.

They warned us that it was coming. Well, here it is. Steamforged's Guild Ball had been rocking along with Season 4 for a bit, but things weren't quite the way everyone wanted. So, the crew went back to the drawing board and has updated not just some players, but also some general rules to make everything work out much better. Check it out.

The American Football Season will soon be upon us. And many of you will be cheering those on the Gridiron. For those that want to cheer on those on the tabletop gridiron, you have a new team you can bring to the pitch. War World Gaming has released their Gutrot Greenskins team.

The first 5 of the Free Cities Draft players have been previewed. Now you can go and order them over in the Steamforged Webshop. Been itching to add to your teams? (I know I have) Now's your chance.

Another day, another preview of the rookies that will soon be making their way to Guild Ball pitches. This time around, we take a look at Gaffer, who is headed to the Mortician's Guild, and he looks like he's going to be taking up the spot left by Ghast after he exited, stage left, pursued by bear.

Time for another preview of the upcoming rookies for Guild Ball. Each team is getting themselves a new player, and for the Hunter's Guild, that's The Edge... *reads notes* Wait, sorry, they are apparently not getting the guitarist from U2. This guy is just Edge. Sorry for the mix-up. Anyway, let's see what she brings to the table.

The Guild Ball teams are getting new rookies. After the draft that was held a while ago, Steamforged has been working on creating the stats for the new figures for their new teams. In this preview, we get a look at Layne, the new rookie for the Butcher's Guild. What new talents will he be bringing to the pitch?

Cats are fast. They are clever. And they are sharp. Sounds like the perfect addition to a football pitch. And that's what you can do with the new Neko Team that Zenit Miniatures has up on Kickstarter now. It's a full team with plenty of extras all set to go. Grab the team that'll have your opponent screaming, "That darn cat!"

Seeing as the elves are getting a new Battletome as well as a new Blood Bowl team, it seems only fitting that Forge World would be taking orders for a new Dryad Star Player. And that's what we've got here. It's Willow Rosebark. Thankfully, she's faster than your average tree running through a field.

A new pair of combatants will be making their way to the arena in Aristeia. Corvus Belli has announced Reckless Hearts, the next expansion for their high-action sci-fi gladiator sports game. Axl Steel and Hippolyta will certainly get the crowd going.

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.

Steamforged is looking to move their team production for Guild Ball from the metal teams they used to have to resin teams for the classic Guilds. The Fisherman's Guild will be the next one coming out. They'll be light blue. Steamforged has posted up a preview of what they'll look like (you might remember them from their failed Indiegogo campaign from several months back).

All fantasy miniatures for you to pre-order this week from Forge World. Though it's not all the same brand of fantasy. We've got the mounted and unmounted version of Deorwine, Chief of the King's Knights for Lord of the Rings/Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game/The Hobbit. Then, over on the fantasy sports side of things in Blood Bowl, there's Deeproot Strongarm, star player treeman, and a pair of referee figures.

Hockey is my favorite sport. I used to play goalie back in the day, so it always has a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of tabletop hockey games out there. However, soon there'll be one more. It's called Trick Shot and it's up on Kickstarter now, but like the actual NHL season, it won't be around for much longer.

The American Football season is several months away still, but the off-season is when teams make trades, train up, learn new drills, and get prepped. And you can too, as there's a new Blood Bowl team about to hit the pitch. It's the Halflings. Have yourself a look.

A new set of fantasy football players is up on Kickstarter. They're not your average gridiron team. They're a bit more into horsing around. They're the Pony Bowl team and you can get yours now.
