At times like these, where many places are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are looking for ways to still sell product. In this case, it's virtual vouchers. So, while the Games Workshop offices and warehouses are closed, you can still buy vouchers for the company so you can still support them during this time. It's a vital thing that people who can manage it should take advantage of so we can ensure our favorite companies and places can still be open after all this is over.
Games Workshop, and by extension Forge World, have hit pause on production during the COVID-19 outbreak in order to help flatten the curve. But while you can't get any actual minis from them, you can still get digital content. They've got the White Dwarf archives up online for you to download, as well as audiobooks, and Warhammer Adventure items for the young'ins.
Games Workshop might be temporarily closed down due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean they're not still working. They're taking pre-orders for a new made-to-order figure, Lieutenant Amulius. If you're looking to add a new space marine to your collection, go get your name on the list now.
It's just the theme of the day, unfortunately. Games Workshop has cancelled Warhammer Fest 2020 and other events all over the world. It's just not a good time to be getting together in big numbers.
Recently, a bunch of different governments put out updated guidelines for closings during the worldwide outbreak. Pretty much anything considered vital has been closed down. To comply with all these new regulations, Games Workshop is closing down their locations and to make sure that they're not spreading it via the mail, they're limited online sales as well.
40k was my first miniatures game I played. My friend and I split the 2nd edition starter box. He got the Marines. I got the Orks. And while I don't play it anymore, I'm still a greenskin through and through. And the greatest Ork Warlord was always Gazghkull Mak Uruk Thraka. Well, he's in a new box set available from Games Workshop, fighting against the Space Wolves and their champion, Ragnar Blackmane. The new Psychic Awakening Book is also available, if you'd like to up your mental content for the game.
Saruman had spies everywhere. No matter where the Fellowship went, there was surveilance on them. Even the very birds of the air would report back to him. And that's who you can get for your forces now from Forge World. They've started taking orders for Crebain of Dunland. Head on over and get your name on the list to get them as soon as they're available.
Wanting to add some more nuns with guns to your collection? Now's a good time for it. Games Workshop has started taking orders for new transports, new units, and new characters for your Sisters of Battle armies. Head on over and get your name on the list now so you can be the first gamer on your block with these figures when they are shipped out next week.
Back when I lived in Kansas, I lived in a small town called Leonardville. It was fairly close to Fort Riley, a military base that had a specialty in artillery. Whenever they would be practicing, it sounded like thunder across the plains. And we were quite a few miles from the actual artillery range. So, I can only assume what it's like right next to it. So, I can only assume what the sound of a Legion Arquitor Bombard with Morbus Heavy Bombard going off is like. But you'll have to provide your own sound effects if you go order one from Forge World (which you can do now).
The GAMA Trade Show is going on. That means lots of new stuff to see. Games Workshop is there and they've got a whole bunch of things they're showing off. New Necromunda, Age of Sigmar, Adeptus Titanicus, and 40k are on display. Have yourselves a peek.
Lizardmen. Ok, they're called Seraphon now (and have for quite some time, but they'll always be Lizardmen to me), but they've always been one of my favorite Age of Sigmar armies (even though I never actually got into that game). I mean, you have dinosaurs riding dinosaurs. What's not to love? Anyway, they've got a new Battletome and extras that you can order now from the Games Workshop website.
Over at Forge World, someone's left crumbs all over. Bigby Crumbs to be, specific. He's a new, *adjusts glasses* Ratling Slopper... Yeah, that's what it says. He's a new Ratling Slopper that's available for your Necromunda gangs. If you want to get Bigby, you can get him either alone or in a whole bundle of Hired Guns that you can order as well from the Forge World website.
What's old is new again. I remember fighting against Howling Banshees back when I played 40k back in 2nd edition. Annoying, they were. And Jain Zar and her huge hair. Well, they're back again. And they're bringing some new Incubi along as well. You can order all of these figures from the Games Workshop webshop now.
*comes in unannounced*
Hello there. Sorry to interrempt...
... *burns everything to the ground, apparently, since that's what an Interemptor does*
If you'd like to burninate the countryside and add this new unit to your Dark Angels army, you can order them over on the Forge World website now.
Now, these figures bring back some memories. Back when I was playing 40k in 2nd and 3rd editions, one of my main opponents played Imperial Guard and had a couple different Valhallan units. And I know I faced down that Commissar Yarrick many times on the battlefield with my Orks. If you're looking to get some of these classic figures, Games Workshop is happy to make them just for you as long as you get your order in this week.
Ok, so maybe it's not technically a tank and is, instead, an armored mobile artillery piece. But that's just terminology. Anyway, Forge World is now taking orders for their new Legion Arquitor Bombard with Graviton-Charge Cannon kit. If you want to blow giant holes in the enemy's battle lines, this is a good choice for that. They're also taking orders for the softcover version of Horus Heresy Book 8.
Games Workshop has a whole lot of things going on in their webshop this week. There's a new Necromunda book and unit. They've got some new Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game kits. But they've also got a bunch of heroes for Age of Sigmar now available individually. So, if you've been wanting some of these figures but didn't want to have to buy a huge set to get them, now you can. As I say, it's a lot going on.
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert!
In this instance, there's a new titan for Adeptus Titanicus available to order from Forge World. But that's not all they've got this week. There's also the new Inner Circle Knights Cenobium unit for the Dark Angels. They have such sights to show you!
Games Workshop has a new batch of pre-orders available over in their webshop, as is their weekly custom. This time around, it's a new Age of Sigmar book. It's called Wrath of the Everchosen. It's all about Nagash and all the things he's been up to lately (it's nothing good if you're alive). There's also new Beastgrave kits, including minis, cards, and special dice sets.
Games. Most of them are competitive in nature. And where you have competition, you're going to have tournaments where players want to find out who's the best. If you're a fan of the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game and you are wanting to hold some tourneys, then the Matched Play Guide is for you. It's got all sorts of scenarios and matched play rules for your games. And even if you don't play tourneys, you can still get a whole host of new scenarios to try out.
Forge World is taking pre-orders for this book, along with a bunch of 40k waterslide transfers or the Emperor's Children, White Scars, and Dark Angels.
Convention season kicks off early every year with the Nuremberg Toy Fair. Want to get a jump on what's going to be coming out during the year? It's the place to be. In this instance, it's what Games Workshop is showing off. They've got previews out for new Aeronautica Imperialis, Necromunda, and Adeptus Titanicus
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Yup, a bit late, but there's Giant Robot Alert. Have a look
Apparently, Games Workshop has been busy. They've unleashed a huge wave of new pre-orders over in their webshop. It's a whole bunch of new kits for Necromunda and the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game. There's card packs for Warcry. There's dice. There's sci-fi terrain. And there's still some Sisters of Battle in there. It was 5 pages worth of stuff, so if you haven't checked out their shop in the last couple days, now's the time to do it.
Let's face it, very little in the 40k universe would ever be considered "wholesome," but the Eightfold Harvest Lord goes even beyond the regular grit and grime of the setting. He's a bounty hunter who delights in slicing up his victims with his twin chain blades, before adding something of his target to his trophy rack. If you're wanting to add this maniac to your Necromunda gang, you can get your name on the list and order him from Forge World now.
Last week, Games Workshop started taking orders for new Sisters of Battle releases. This week, they continue that trend with even more units for the faction. But that's not all. They've also got the new Psychic Awakening: Ritual of the Damned book and a new Dark Angels character for you to pick up. Head on over and check it out.
The Blood Angels are the vampires of the Space Marine legions. But it's not all ripping apart throats. They do use ranged weapons too. In this instance, grenade launchers and volkite serpentas. These new units can be ordered now from Forge World to help flesh out your armies.
