From the article:

My miniature collection grows, thus I need storage. Since I already own a few cases from Tabletop Tyrant, such as my trusty Kingmaker (behind the books in the pic above), I was more than happy to see Tabletop’s newest addition, the Squire Plastic Figure Case.

Pretty much the same size as Tabletop Tyrant’s “half-size” Kingmaker, it replaces the black material case for a sturdy plastic exterior. One (or more) of those should be really useful in storing larger miniature collections (e.g. Warhammer 40K).

From the review:

Dataslates first hit Warhammer 40K during last year’s Digital Advent Calendar, leading up to Christmas. Like any of the pre-Christmas digital dataslates – say the Tau Fire Support Cadre – the Strike Force Ultra dataslate was written to match the box of miniatures of the same name.
The Strike Force Ultra, as it comes in the box, is already a solid army in itself – 1485 pts. minimum without any upgrades.

Games Workshop says Sayonara to Social Media

Pins of War has noticed that Games Workshop has gotten rid of all their social media for their properties.



Source

From Pins of War:

Games Workshop has not had much loving for Social Media for a while. A little over a year ago, they shut down their “main” Facebook page, though pages for individual Games Workshop stores, as well as sub-groups such as Black Library or Forge World remained.

Now those have been axed as well, along with Twitter Accounts and other Social Media channels GW has been using.

Pins of War posts The Imperial Knight Companion – Review

Pins of War gave you their thoughts on the model, but what about the book? Well, now you can find out with their Imperial Knight Companion Review.



Source

From the review:

Releasing the new Imperial Knights for Warhammer 40K, Games Workshop gave it their all. Not only is there the new miniature and the new Codex, there is also The Imperial Knight Companion, a pure collectors book of Art, Heraldry, Pictures and Background.

Games Workshop did a lot of picture and art books in their time. Heraldry books aren’t uncommon in Warhammer Fantasy either.

Still, among these, the Imperial Knight Companion is without doubt one of Games Workshop’s best eye-candy products so far… it’s a genuine 40K coffee table book; absolutely stunning to look at. I only wish the writing would’ve been a tad more engaging.

Knights vs. Leviathans

Pins of War is wondering which you guys prefer, the new Games Workshop Knights or the Leviathans from DreamForge Games.
I know which one I prefer. *looks on desk*



Source

From the article:

Ever since word got out, that Games Workshop was doing a plastic kit for an Imperial Knight, debates have raged on whether gamers should opt for the model from GW themselves, or opt instead for a surprisingly fitting alternative, the Leviathan Crusader from DreamForge.

Time for … a poll!

Pins of War reviews Ravage Gaming Magazine #5

Pins of War got themselves a copy of Ravage Magazine issue #5 and put up a review, comparing it to a recent issue of White Dwarf.



From the review:

Synopsis: Though Ravage magazine has half the page-count of a current White Dwarf, it is a far more fulfilling read. It’s packed with content. However, as all content is “branded” to different games. Scarcity of generic hobby content would keep my away from a subscription.
