It was kinda hard to decide which of these two I wanted to feature. On one hand, you’ve got Necromunda, which I know has been a fan favorite for quite some time and is about to hit gaming tables again. On the other, you’ve got a superheavy tank, which is just below giant robots on [&helli...

It wouldn’t be Games Workshop if there weren’t multiple versions of vehicles and units. In this case, you’ve previously had the Tau Tiger Shark AX-1-0, but you’ve not had the “standard issue” Tiger Shark. Well, that’s what you’re getting this week (like...

Here we are, once more at the threshold to the weekend. I know I’m ready for it. It’s been a busy week with a lot of work going on here at the office. I could use a day of just hanging out and playing with my toy soldiers with some good friends. At least, that’s […]...

Man, space-janitors have all the cool gear. There’s a new laser cannon available for the Legio Custodes’ dreadnaughts over in the Forge World webshop. Oh how helpful that’d be after a football game… Also available to order is the huge Tau Tiger Shark. Having a problem with ene...

Friday is here! Woo! Gateway to the weekend. I’m hoping yours will be filled with all sorts of gaming. I might get in some Guild Ball on a brand-new gaming mat this evening. Tomorrow, I’m gonna be hanging out with friends for an early Halloween party. Should be a good time filled with tas...

One of the more-popular Imperial Guard groups is the Death Korps of Krieg. I’ve always loved how they look, with their trench coats and gas masks. It’s a very WWI-feel to me, which I think is awesome, since I think that war gets overlooked a lot more than it should. Anyway, there’s ...

I tend to repeat myself around here. It’s just in my nature, really (you should hear my dad tell the same story a dozen times). Two things I’ve often said is that walking to battle is for suckers. Also, the Legio Custodes have some of the best janitorial equipment I’ve ever seen. Th...

As I’ve said with pretty much every Legio Custodes release, I wish I had that kind of gear back when I was a janitor. This one, in particular, would’ve been nice. Trust me, I’ve come across many, many, many things in those previous jobs that made me go, “Kill it with fire!!!&#...

In the grim dark of the far-future, there’s lots of armored pieces around you might have to worry about when going into battle. From huge titans and gargants to terminators and crisis suits, you’re gonna need a way to get those enemies off the board. Bathing them in balls of plasma is a g...

Just this morning, we were talking about The 10 Commandments. Obviously, there’s strong Egyptian themes in that movie. Well, then I log on to check news stories, and the strong Egyptian themes follow me here. Forge World has started taking orders for their new Thousand Sons Legion Praetor figur...

Janitors in the 41st Millennium have the coolest gear. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but every time something new comes out for the Legio Custodes, it just reinforces my thoughts on the matter. They’ve got some new Aquilon Terminators you can pick up. Also, the Sisters of Silence hav...

It’s Friday, so that means it’s new-order-day over at Forge World. Today’s releases could’ve partially ended up in a Terrain Corner post, too, but since everything’s all in one place, we’ll put them here. They’ve got a new set for The Hobbit in the form of Ba...

As usual for a Friday, Forge World has a new model in their webshop that you can order. This time around, it’s Gabriel Angelos, Master of the Blood Ravens. I honestly know nothing about the Blood Ravens. I just know that the mini’s pretty cool-looking with a big-ass hammer....

Forge World once again has two far ends of the spectrum available to order from this week. For you 40k (or, I guess, technically, 30k) fans, they’re expanding their Horus Heresy Characters range with Magistus Amon of the Thousand Sons Legion. Meanwhile, on the Blood Bowl pitches, Skaven players...

Many times I have shown my envy at the Custodians of the 40k universe. There are certainly times I’ve had to go into a bathroom to clean it and wish I had dreadnought armor to protect me. For those really big jobs, the Legio Custodes have the Telemon Dreadnoughts. You can order yours now from [...

Well, it’s been almost a week. So, I’m sure all of you are all extremely tired of 40k already and want to play something else… I’m kidding. But if that actually is the case, and you want to play some The Hobbit, well, Forge World has some new figures you can order for the game...

It was hard to decide which item to feature here for this latest set of releases from Forge World. They didn’t have anything last week, but they’ve certainly made up for it this week. There’s a new version of the famous Thunderhawk Gunship, a pair of new Imperial Armour books, and a...

Continuing their Primarchs Series, Forge World is now taking orders for Magnus the Red. As usual, he’s available in several forms. You can get him on his own, with a retinue of troops, or as a diorama set along with Leman Russ (the primarch, not the tank)....

Whether you’re on the fields of Middle Earth or on some planet far off from Terra, nobody likes having to walk to battle. Better to get someone or something else to deliver you to the action. I.E. – Drive closer so I can hit them with my sword! Well, that’s what Forge World has for ...

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 […]...

Still miffed that when I was a custodian (including at this place), I never got to play with anything as cool as powered armor or a jetbike. Though riding around in the gators was always cool. Though emptying out the parking lot trashcans on a jetbike would’ve been cooler. Anyway, while I didn&...

One expects to see tanks out on the battlefield when playing a game of 40k. There’s all manner of them around. And normally you might not expect to see one when playing Blood Bowl. Well, if you’re playing for or against a Dwarven team, that might not be the case. And this week, Forge Worl...

With my love of giant robots, I’ve always loved Terminators in 40k. I know. I know. They’re a guy in a suit. But considering the suit-to-guy ratio there, they’re basically giant robots (I mean, Gundams are “a guy in a suit, too”). I’ve just always loved the way Ter...
