Miniatures


Baueda is reinforcing the German lines in 1-48TACTIC with a new release. You can now pick up Grenadier Lugwig Geyer and add him to your force.

Fire in the hole!

A squad of troopers. They're the basic fighting unit of both the Empire and the Rebellion. But with the addition of even just a single specialist with a specialized weapon or unique training, the overall squad's abilities can be greatly enhanced. In Star Wars: Legion, you'll soon be able to upgrade your units with new specialists. Check out this preview of the two upgrade sets coming soon.

When the bombs fell, everything that wasn't blasted apart was bathed in toxic radiation. While most things just up and died, others lived on, mutated, twisted, and warped by the nuclear fallout. Now, you can bring these toxic abominations to your tabletop as Modiphius has released new figures for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare.

It's finally getting colder outside here in Atlanta. I don't need my AC running constantly. Granted, give it a bit and it'll be very cold and I'll have the heater going, since homes in Atlanta don't use insulation. But while I'm shivering around the computer, I can at least look at some cool figures (no pun intended) as Mantic is taking orders for new Northern Alliance figures for Kings of War.

Bit of a shotgun set of releases for you from Warlord Games this time around. Starting off, for those of you that like to take all your rulebooks with you in your pocket, there's the digital version of the Black Seas rulebook. For those that are Pike & Shotte players (been a while since I'd seen anything for them), you can get your new Scots Covenanter General and Army Standard Bearer. Last, but not least, there's the North Korean KPA ZIS-3 Divisional Gun for Bolt Action: Korea.

Privateer Press might still be working on their grand move, but that doesn't mean that they can't get you some new figures. There's some new Infernals, as well as some new fighters for Riot Quest, including one very familiar name (though not sporting his big boiler armor anymore). You can pick up these new figures now.

X-Wing. It's pretty much just a 1-v-1 game with two squadrons facing off against one-another. But what about bringing more people in on the fun? That's a little trickier, but not impossible. To help out, Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Epic Battles multiplayer expansion. This new box set contains several scenarios for you to play out with your friends. In this article, they take a look at one so you can know what you're getting into.

During times of war, there are those that will use the conflic to make some money. They are Mercenaries, and they are ready to sell their services to the highest bidder. Well, the Infinity universe is certainly filled with conflict, so it only stands to reason that there are those looking to profit from it. Enter the Soldiers of Fortune box set, coming soon for the game. Have yourselves a look in this preview.

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.

Scott Pilgrim. It's a much-beloved comic series that sees the titular Scott fighting through evil-Exes to win his lover's heart. Well, soon, he'll be fighting for love on  your tabletops. Renegade Game Studios has announced Scott Pilgrim Miniatures The World, a new miniatures game that they will be bringing to Kickstarter next week.

The Germans are lining the beaches, looking across the English Channel, waiting for the Allies to make a play at taking their control away from mainland Europe. They're well equipped, with all manner of different weapons ready for action. This week's set of releases for Flames of War from Battlefront includes some anti-armor elements.

The amphibious landing. It's been a staple of warfare for thousands of years as water-based troops storm the beaches to fight a foe on the land. Warlord Games is bringing these exciting battles to your games of Black Seas and Black Powder with a new set of rules that they've posted up over on their website.

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.

Happy New Year!

What's that? You say it's October? Well, we're celebrating the New Year anyway. At least, we're prepping for it. Yes, we're getting 2020 vision with a preview of the January releases that Privateer Press will have.

House Bolton is well known for its cruelty. Meeting them on the battlefield is bad enough. Just make sure you don't get captured and taken back to their keep. A horrifying fate awaits you. The Bolton Blackguards are the House's main troops, and soon, they'll be making their way to the tabletops in the Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. In this preview, we get a look at just what players can expect.

Midweek Snippets time. This week's going by pretty quick so far. I'm certainly happy for that, as it's game again this weekend. So, you know I'm trilled. I came up with some other stupidly ridiculous things I could do as my Bard, so we'll see. But, before we can get there, we need to get to some tasty, bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Orc Tigerwagon Available From Kromlech, Dice of the Ancients Brass Dice Up On Kickstarter, Greatsword Girl Mini Available From Brother Vinni, and Centaur Bodies Now Available from Hero Forge.

Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllll what's on Mick Foley's hand? Probably. It's a sock after all, and I don't know how often he washes that thing.

If you're looking to get into HeroClix with the new WWE set, WizKids has a perfect place to do so. They've announced their The Rock 'n' Sock Connection Starter Set with some of the WWE's most iconic characters ready to hit the mat.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

You know what that means, Giant Robot Alert. We have Giant Robot Alert. And this one almost crept on by unnoticed. But, at nearly the last minute, we caught it on our screens. It's Obsidian Protocol, and it's a new squad-based mecha miniatures skirmish miniatures game that's up on Kickstarter now. Grab your gear and get going!

Hands up everyone who used to watch the X-Men Animated Series. *raises hand* Yeah, it was a pretty sweet cartoon. And who can forget that blasting guitar intro? Anyway, if you want a bit of nostalgia and also to add to your HeroClix collection, you should check out the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, The Dark Phoenix Saga (full names are fun!). This new set is available now.

The Germans had a whole army's worth of men and material to defend against the Allied invasions at Normandy. Battlefront has yet more for your Flames of War games. Armored vehicles, artillery, and more to defend German holdings.

Friday! Woo!

I'm ready for it, as always. Yesterday I kept thinking, "Ooh! It's Friday!" but, of course, it wasn't. Not that it's been a bad week or that I have huge plans for the weekend. I was just thinking it was already here before its time, which is never fun. But that's not the case now. It is actually Friday and that does mean it's time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Steve Jackson Opens Up Dice and Accessories Pre-Orders, The Wilds of Wintertide Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and Amazon Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter.

<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).

It's been a little bit since we've had new figures for the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game from Warlord Games. But it looks like that wait will soon be over. They've posted up a teaser image for Judge Dredd, Rebellion over on their website. And, I have to say, the modelling looks like a definite step up from some of their previous releases for the line.

While the Imperials can certainly create ships of rather large size, and the Rebels manage to get enough shipbuilders on their side to do it as well, the various individuals that make up the Scum & Villainy faction in X-Wing also can create such large ships. One example is the C-ROC Cruiser. This ship is getting an update to 2nd edition, and you can see just what it will look like in this preview.
