The first codex release for 8th Edition 40k is now available. And they’re starting out with the Tau! … No, of course they aren’t. They’re starting out with the most iconic of their factions, the Space Marines. You can order the codex, as well as several new squads and a new st...

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...

I’ve got a lot of friends that’ve picked up the new 8th edition of 40k. They all seem to be enjoying it. Mostly, they seem to like the new Primaris Space Marines. Well, as disciplined and such as those guys are, they still need strong and capable leaders to get the job done. Thankfully, G...

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 [...

Age of Sigmar really took of when the General’s Handbook came out. The updated warscrolls, with points, as well as the three modes of play really gave players a lot of options. Well, Games Workshop has announced they’re coming out with General’s Handbook 2017, which will update and ...

Well, you’ve had the new 40k set for a couple weeks now. I’m sure you’re all just so tired of that and want to get back to the Fantasy side of things… or not. But if you’ve been playing 8th Edition and had someone go, “do they make it with, like, wizards and chario...

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 goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they’ll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coache...

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...

By now, I’m sure you’ve probably heard about it. I mean, we mentioned it last week. But there’s a new edition of Warhammer 40k available to pre-order from Games Workshop. 8th Edition brings familiar mechanics that you’ve seen before with some new twists and ways to put forces ...

A little different item for you today from Games Workshop. They’ve not come out with a Hobbit release for a bit, but you can get two kits from their webshop. One’s the main crew, being Thorin Oakenshield & Company. The other is the Goblin King & Retinue. There’s also some ...

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)....

The new edition of 40k isn’t the only thing going on with that particular universe. Devil Pig Games is taking their game system used for Heroes of Normandie and sending it into the far future and far from Earth. Heroes of Black Reach will be a new game set in the grimdark future where there [&h...

You know, as I’ve gone on in my gaming career, I’ve more-and-more found myself drawn to skirmish games. Not that I think there’s anything inherently bad or wrong with large-army games. They’re just not really for me, anymore. So when I see that Games Workshop has started takin...

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 ...

The new season of Blood Bowl is now available to order from Games Workshop. If you were hoping for some of the teams from the older version of the game that weren’t there in the latest version (for example, Lizardmen for me), you’ll be happy to see that they’re here, as well as some...

I was over at the LGS the other day, picking up some minis, and happened to watch several games of Age of Sigmar. One guy was using the new Kharadron Overlords. I have to admit, steampunk-style dwarves are pretty cool. If you’ve got a force, or are thinking of starting one, Games Workshop’...

You know, when you normally think of dwarves, you think of them down in some mountain keep somewhere. You might not think to look up and see them floating overhead. But that’s just what they’re doing in Age of Sigmar, and you can order the new Kharadron Overlords airship, along with some ...

With a library of miniatures going back literally decades, Games Workshop couldn’t realistically keep everything they’ve ever made in stock. That’d be ridiculous. But since they aren’t made regularly, some older pieces can be really hard to find. Well, occasionally, GW will di...

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&...
