Forge World Taking Pre-Orders For Willow Rosebark for Blood Bowl

New Pre-Orders Available From Games Workshop

I know, a really generic headline, but when it comes to typing out all the different things that are available to pre-order this week from Games Workshop, it'd either be a really short headline that gets you to read on, or a large amount of the story would just be up in said headline. Anyway, Games Workshop has a ton of stuff up for pre-order right now. Arguably, the two biggest are the new Battletome: Sylvaneth and Scouring of the Shire books for Age of Sigmar and the Middle-arth Strategy Battle Game, respectively. There's also new figures for both those games, a new elven Blood Bowl team, new sets for Adeptus Titanicus, 40k, and pretty much everything else you can think of. There's terrain. There's dice. There's... I mean, I told you it was a lot of stuff.

Trick Shot Hockey Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Hockey is my favorite sport. I used to play goalie back in the day, so it always has a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of tabletop hockey games out there. However, soon there'll be one more. It's called Trick Shot and it's up on Kickstarter now, but like the actual NHL season, it won't be around for much longer.

Seriously: Guild, guild, guild, guild, guild... You type it and say it in your head so much that the word just starts to sound weird.

Anyway... it includes a tank. Because that seems legit for a fantasy sports game. It worked for Blood Bowl.

New Nurgle Blood Bowl Team Available to Order From Forge World

I'm not entirely sure how effective a giant bloated slug-thing would be in a game of Blood Bowl. Seems like it wouldn't really be able to keep up with the action all too well. But that's for you to work out on the pitch. A new Nurgle team, including a new Rotspawn, is available to order from Forge World.
