Ok, so the Romans actually existed (and, I mean, they still exist). And Warlords of Erehwon is a fantasy game. However, there are many mythical and legendary things about the Roman Legions of ancient times and so the folks over at Warlord Games have decided that, sure, you can use your Roman Legions in games of Warlords. Why not? Head on over and check out this new army list.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, production and shipping has been delayed in all areas of the gaming community. While, most of the time, these delays are only negative, in this case, there's a small, silver lining around that cloud. Corvus Belli has extended their period to pre-order Operation Kladstrom, their upcoming starter set for Infinity. So, if you're wanting, you can have a couple extra weeks to get together funds for the pre-order.

No matter how much testing a company does, whenever their product goes out into "the wild," there's bound to be things that are found that could have possibly been better in the design. That definitely holds true for minis games that have quite a lot of different moving parts associated with them. Well, thankfully, many companies look to fix these issues. Steamforged, for example, has released a new Guild Ball Errata. Make sure you're playing with the right rules!

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.

If you were thinking that there wouldn't be a single sheep or goat as part of the Shepherd's Guild, you would be mistaken. They've got themselves a big one. It's Ram, and we get a look at just how they work on the pitch in this preview.

Sure, you're at home. But that doesn't mean you can't get some new stuff. One Page Rules is here to help alleviate your qurantine woes with new rules sets for both Age of Fantasy and Grimdark Future. As always, you can just head over to their website and download them now.

For the next couple Star Wars: Legion support units, Fantasy Flight is headed to prequel territory. They've announced that they're working on the Republic AT-RT unit as well as the STAP Riders for Separatists. Have yourselves a look at these two mechanical, fast-moving sets.

The British are still storming the beaches of Normandy, despite the sickness that's going around. The folks over at Battlefront have some more D-Day British for Flames of War that they've added to their website. Have a look for yourselves.

While stores and businesses might be temporarily closed, that doesn't mean there's not work going on. Behind the scenes, in living rooms all across the world, industry continues. In this case, it's some new Star Wars: Legion sets. Fantasy Flight has previewed two new Special Forces units that, after all this pandemic stuff finishes up, you'll be able to get for your collections.

As with most companies, there have been changes over at Ares Games based on the COVID-19 outbreak. They've posted up an article talking about what they're doing this time and what products will be affected as well as a hopeful timeline of when they'll be able to start sending things back out again.

With Coronavirus impacting every aspect of life, that includes not letting people go to work. As such, it's hard to get new things made. In this case, it's WizKids letting us know what products they'll be delaying due to the outbreak. They've posted up a list so you can know what might be affected by these delays.

At home and want to work on your Warmachine, Monsterpocalypse, or Riot Quest collections? Well, there's new releases for all three of those games available from Privateer Press. There's some new Warcasters, new Warjacks, nw giant monsters, and more. Have yourselves a look.

Sheep constantly grow their wool. If it's not sheared off, it could actually cause harm to the sheep due to overheating and other effects. So, if you've got a flock of sheep, you need someone to make sure they're cleanly cut. That's where Shearer comes in. He's the next Shepherd's Guild figure to get previewed for Guild Ball. Let's take a look.

Halfway through the week. We can do it. I believe in all of us. It's tough. I know. But we can and must carry on. I have faith in you all. And while we're munching on our non-perishable snacks, we can also grab a handful of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Rausenburg Siege Corps Heavy Weapons Crew Available From Victoria Miniatures, Kraken Dice Warehouse Sale Extended Through Today, and New Desert Scorpions Available From Victoria Miniatures.

When you're talking about a guild of Shepherds, you're going to expect to see lambs. But Lamb for the Shepherd's Guild in Guild Ball is just some young sheep, barely able to stand. Nope, he's a football master and you can get a preview of him here.

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.

Babypuppies! Eee!

If you're wanting a team in Guild Ball that lets you have a puppy on the field, you have a couple choices including the Butcher's Guild and Hunter's Guild. Soon, another doggo-friendly crew will be hitting the pitch. The Shepherd's Guild has a pair of squaddies, Hook and Crook that are the goodest of squadies. Check them out here.

Reach out. Reach out and touch someone. Well, not right now. We're supposed to socially isolate. You know who's good at that? The NRC Ranger for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. You can pick up this new sniper for your forces now over in the Modiphius webshop.

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.

Some new sets are coming out soon for Infinity. One's a new starter set designed to help new players get involved in the game as quickly and easily as possible. The other is a supplement to that box. That's what we get a look at here. It's called Dire Foes: Retaliation. Have yourselves a look.

Tanks.
"You're welcome."
No, Tanks!
"Ok, well, you're not welcome then!"
No! Tanks!
You, too, can have this humorous exchange as you look over the new releases available from Battlefront for Flames of War. They've got new British D-Day Tanks available over in their webshop.

Welcome to Friday. Even though I don't really have much at all planned for the weekend, I'm looking forward to it. It's been a stressful week, as I'm sure everyone will agree.

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.
