40K


Games Workshop is bulking up both of their latest games with this week's pre-releases. For those that have picked up Kill Team, there's some new starter sets, including Tyranids and the Imperium (plus loads and loads of new dice. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice). For those that are going along with the new edition of Age of Sigmar, both the Stormcast Eternals and the undead are getting new releases, including a new version of the legendary Black Coach.
A lot of this could theoretically go in today's Terrain Corner as well, but we'll get to that. Games Workshop has started taking orders for Kill Team. What is Kill Team? Basically skirmish-sized 40k. Don't want to get your huge-ass army out every time? Grab an elite core of minis and go at it in the tight spaces on the table. There's a starter box, main rulebook, some other starter sets. Just lots of stuff to get you going.
Who doesn't like getting free stuff? Nobody. Everyone likes getting free stuff. And to celebrate the release of the Imperial Knights codex, Forge World is giving away free stuff. All you have to do is buy an Acastus Knight (or other type of Knight or Titan), and you could win one. BOGO at its lottery best.
In the grim dark of the 41st millennium, there is only war...
This we know, and many of you get out your armies weekly and fight for supremacy on the battlefields all across the Imperium and beyond. But soon, you'll have another way to fight, on the RPG tabletop. Ulisses North America has started taking pre-orders for their new Wrath & Glory 40k RPG. Get your name on the list and be one of the first gamers with this new book when it's available.
Friday! Woo!
And I entirely forgot to mention earlier that we're actually into Summer now. *gets out the Bermuda shorts and flip-flops*
And, being summer, it's time to bust out the hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, and coleslaw. But while we're waiting for the grill to heat up, let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Salamander Doors and Hatches From Forge World, HeartBeat Dice Launching on Kickstarter Today, Purgatory reveals the faction artwork lineup, Cerberus Studios Launches Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Viking Kickstarter Products Now Available, and New Releases Available From Y.F.T. Design Studio.

Game designers aren't infallible. Sometimes, they come up with rules that don't quite work out. They're human. It happens to all of us. What's best, though, is to learn from your mistakes and fix them. Well, the original Adeptus Mechanicus rules weren't quite what people were looking for, so the Forge World team gave them an update. You can check them out now.
*Whoop!**Whoop!**Whoop!**Whoop!*
Giant robot alert! We've got giant robot alert!
Let's go to the visual.
Hmm... it's looking like a new one from Games Workshop. Makes sense with their Titans book they just released. Check out and maybe order an Armiger Warglaive.
If you know me, you know I love giant robots. So, while I've not played 40k in quite a long time, the addition of even more giant robots to the game certainly has me stopping and going, "hmm..." and then going to check my bank account. Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for their Imperial Knights codex, as well as new kits, widgets, dice, and more.
*leans in close to everyone's ear and whispers* "Hail Hydra..."
Ok, so that's a different franchise, but it works in this particular instance, since Forge World has started taking orders for new Alpha Legion figures (their symbol is the hydra, if you didn't know). The new kits include Alpharius, the Primarch of the chapter, as well as a Tac. Squad and a Terminator Squad, plus doors for your various tanks and transports.
Have you ever gone to put together a new model you just got, only to find out that your glue is missing, or glued shut, or you've run out, or has run dry? I hate when that happens. Thankfully, with these new kits for Age of Sigmar and 40k that Games Workshop is selling, that's not an issue. They're designed to simply fit together without the need of glue.
Why so serious?
A fan-favorite army that existed and then didn't for quite some time, the Harlequins are getting a new Codex for 40k. You can pick up these stealthy, laughing jokesters now. They're Eldar, but without the angst. Pre-orders are being taken now for the updated Codex, along with a collector's edition.
Humanity is beset on all sides by foes. The Xeno. The Witch. The Heretic. All of them would undo the empire in an instant if they could. That's why the Deathwatch are there to keep us safe. They head where no one else will and fight of things that nobody else could. The new codex for Warhammer 40k is available to pre-order now for this rugged, rag-tag group of fighters.
Slogging it on foot into battle is no fun. You've got enemy small-arms fire, the possibly difficult terrain, and have you ever had to smell what's going on out there? Whenever possible, taking an APC to the combat line is going to be a better option. And for your Imperial troops, they can now hop onboard an Aurox Armored Transport. You can order yours now from Forge World.
They're also doing a "last call" for Elysian Drop Troops if you want 'em.
Back when I was a janitor at KSU, the guy in charge was Frank. He gave us our orders for the day. Which offices were we supposed to clean. Which areas needed what done to them. All that kind of stuff. For the space janitors (that is, the Legio Custodes), their leader is Constantin Valdor. Forge World is now taking orders for him over in their webshop.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Space Janitors have the coolest gear. Forge World is taking more orders for some Legio Custodes bits, as well as the Shield Captain. You've gotta have people in charge of the group, or you might end up mopping up something someone else already did, and that's certainly no good.
Space puppies!
I know, I know. They're Space Wolves. But, to me, every dog's a puppy, even if it weighs 240 pounds and it can bite through a parking meter. I'm sure the Space Wolves don't like being called Space Puppies, but they'll get over it if you scratch them behind the ears and tell them they're a good boy. And if you'd like to expand your pack, there's several new Space Wolf sets available to order from Forge World.
The Imperial Fists are siege masters. They can topple any structure. And the fortifications they, themselves, make are some of the strongest in the galaxy. Forge World is cranking out new Imperial Fists figures. You've seen the Rogal Dorn, but they've added honor guard and others like that over in their webshop.
Bit of a shotgun release week for Forge World. You've got a new Primarch in the form for Rogal Dorn. You've got some Legio Custodes characters and bits (space janitors have the coolest gear). Then there's the Space Wolf terminators and bits. And, of course, new Hired Guns for Necromunda. Like I said, a bit of everything going on.
Two ends of the spectrum over on Forge World's ordering page this week. On one hand, you've got the next set of Nazgul figures for The Hobbit. On the other hand, you've got doors for Rhinos and Land Raiders for a whole bunch of different Space Marine chapters.
You know what's annoying to clean up? Sand.
It gets everywhere. It ruins the wax finish on floors. It's a pain to try and get rid of. So I can see why the Adeptus Custodes might be getting a bunch of reinforcements. They see the new Thousand Sons stuff coming and they just know that those heretics are going to track sand all over everything. Ugh. Just the worst! How inconsiderate!
The month's almost over, but that just means there's one last chance to win something from Forge World. The previous have all been titans and walkers of some type. This time around, they're going sans-legs with the Astraeus Super-heavy tank. Put in your order and you could win.
I swear, space janitors have the coolest gear. I wish that I could've had stuff like this. The best we got were the portable power washer stations with all the different soaps right on them. But I guess if you're going in to clean up after xenos and heretics and whatnot, some soap and hot water isn't going to be enough. Games Workshop is taking pre-orders for a whole host of Adeptus Custodes figures, as well as their new codex, over in their webshop.
Oh, and a Primarch. There's that, too. ;)
Forge World is continuing their January of giveaways. This time around, it's an Acastus Knight Porphyrion that you could win. Just head to their webshop, make a qualifying order, and you could be getting something huge in your shipment for nothing at all.
Forge World is taking January as an opportunity to give away some free stuff. They're on their third giveaway. This time around, it's the high-tech-looking T’au KX139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour. Just head over to their shop and spend £50 this week and you'll be added to the drawing.
All this month, Forge World is giving away titans. Each week, a new winner will be announced who will get themselves one of these massive machines of war for nothing. This time around, it's those space elves, the Eldar, who are having the spotlight shined upon them. If you want a free Revenant, head over to Forge World and make an order.
