Games Workshop


It's back around to Monday. I hope your weekend was good. Mine was. I got to see a bunch of good friends I'd not seen in a while. However, being up super-late has thrown off my schedule and made me head for a Dew to get me going again. But I'll make it. The other thing I'm going to make is your gaming tables look better.

Ok, so that link wasn't so great. I did say I was running in low gear today.

Anyway, today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Adeptus Titanicus Terrain From Forge World, Ded 'Ard Dakka Tower Available From Tabletop Scenics, and Ramshackle Fortress Available From TTCombat.

Two venerable chapters of the Space Marines are gettting Codex updates this week from Games Workshop. I remember back when these two were just alternate paint schemes, but they've had many updates since then, coming into their own with full support. If you're wanting to get some new Imperial Fists or Salamanders, this is an update you'll be excited about.

But even if you don't play those chapters, there's a new unit and vehicle to add to your Marine forces.

Psychers. They can use their mind to tap into a well of power and unleash attacks and enhance their abilities far beyond what any regular mortal is capable of. It's risky, but the risks are often worth the reward. For those with a love of psychers in 40k, you're in luck. There's the new Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising book, as well as the Blood of the Phoenix box set available to order now from Games Workshop.

Hobbitses. They may be small, but don't discount their value to Middle Earth. The Shire may seem peaceful, but they have their own rogues and vagabons, along with just those with strong personalities. Forge World is letting you add some new of the half-pints to your collection with two new pairs of figures that you can order now.

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.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert! Yup, we've got two new Dark Angels figures available for you to order from Forge World this week. One's a new Praetor, while the other is a Legion Leviathan Dreadnaught body. All in stylish black (well, you have to paint them yourself ,but still), for those that like your Dark Angels without their Dark Angel Green coloration (or whatever that color's called nowadays).

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.

WAAAGH!!!

The White Scars are well-known for their speed with which they head into battle. None of the white-clad brethren want to just have to walk their way to victory. They employ all manner of vehicles. One such is the Kyzagan Assault Speeder, which you can order now over in the Forge World webshop.

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.

I know it happens somewhat often, getting some rather extreme differences between different releases from Forge World some weeks. But this one is pretty far apart. On one side, we've got a new Young Bilbo figure that's only available for a week to order. On the other, we've got three new weapons for Adeptus Titanicus with which to outfit your-

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

giant robots. I need to make sure that alarm's working right. I think it got confused a little too.

There's many different Space Marine chapters in the 40k universe, each with their own combat strategies, strengths, focus in doctrine, and choice for equipment when hitting the battlefield. If you're looking to diversify your army a bit from just your average Marine force, you can now order two new codices from Games Workshop. You can put your name down to get either Raven Guard or Iron Hands (or both, I suppose) books now.

I mean, I like rain. I like storms. But I'm not really thrilled when they cause huge amounts of damage, I.E. - become Ruinstorms. But that's just what you're getting to order from Forge World this week. There's new Ruinstorm Daemon Brutes that you can get for your 40k Horus Heresy armies. Place your orders now.

Games Workshop is bringing M&Ms to your games of Warcry. No, not the tasty chocolate candies that melt in your mouth, not in your hand. I mean Monsters & Mercenaries. Want to add new vicious beasts to your force? This is where you can find them. There's even a new campaign to undertake. Along with the book, there's a host of new figures you can order as well.

Shoom! Shoom! Dakka-dakka-dakka! Neeeeeroooom! Bshhhh! Aaaaah! *moves the little planes around by their stands while making sound effects*

Err... umm... yes. *puts toy planes away* Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for a new miniatures game set in the 40k universe. It's Aeronautica Imperialis and it's akin to Wings of Fury and X-Wing, in that you're controlling aircraft in the skies high above the battlefield. The starter set is Imperial vs. Orks. You can order your copy now.

A classic game in a new form. Relic, the epic sci-fi adventure around the Antian Sector, is now available from WizKids. What's different about the WizKids version? The busts for the figures have been improved. There's also upgraded punchboard and scenario cards. Want to get something a little extra? There's the Deluxe version where the busts are pre-painted for your convenience. You can get your copy now.

Forge World releases do sometimes fall on pretty far spectrums in terms of theme from one-another. You've got sci-fi. You've got fantasy. It's a little from column A. It's a little from column B. That's what we have today. They are taking orders for new jetbikes for the White Scars and a gunship for the Legion Janitorales... I mean, Custodes. They've also got a new set for the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game that's the various defenders of Lake-town, including Bard, Legolas, and Tauriel.

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.

Some new box sets are availble to pre-order from Games Workshop over in their store for some of the spin-off games from 40k. There's a new Kill Team starter that pits the Space Marines against the Tau. Then, you have a new Blackstone Fortress expansion called Escalation. It, as one would expect, continues on the story of the game as you try and take back the weapon systems in the fortress.

There's a new Space Marines codex making its rounds for you 40k players. And, as usual, when there's a new Codex release, the next couple waves are also for that faction. As such, there's new Marines that you can get, including some leaders and a new Tactical Warsuit.

Two ends of the spectrum available to pre-order from Forge World this week. On one hand, you've got a pair of Necromunda figures, Apollus Kage & Krotus Hark, to add to your gangs. On the others, there's two Middle-earth kits in the form of Ruffian Leaders and Will Whitfoot & Baldo Tulpenny. So, if you like sci-fi gangs or fantasy Hobbits, you've got some options.

Space Marines. They're pretty much the most iconic thing in Warhammer 40k. They've also got a new codex that you can order from Games Workshop. There's also a supplemental codex for the Ultramarines and White Scars. So, if you don't want Space Romans and instead want Space Mongols, you can pick that up. There's also a few new minis and some chapter dice if you prefer.

Ah, Dark Angels. Back when I played 40k, they were my chapter of choice. Granted, my main army was Orks, so maybe I just had a surplus of green paint already sitting around. But that's beside the point, if you're a Dark Angels fan, there's a new Dreadnaught and Terminator that you can pre-order from Forge World for your boys in black (before they went green).

Games Workshop has a new book out for Necromunda. It's The Book of Judgement (as if the 40k universe wasn't judgy enough). Along with it, they've got the new Palanite Enforcer Patrol unit, along with some different card packs for them.

Games Workshop is going a bit retro. They've pulled a trio of old Chaos Sorcerer models out of the vaults and are ready to custom-make some when you want to order them. This might be your last chance for a while to pick them up. So get now while the getting is good.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

You know what that sound means. It's the Giant Robot Alert and that's what Forge World is bringing us this week. They're the Knight Moirax and there's two weapon loadouts that you can pre-order now from their webshop for your 40k armies.
