Miniatures


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. But we'll make it through, press on, and see better days ahead. I mean, it's Spring (up here in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway). Here's some appropriate music. And along with all your saved rations and non-perishable goods, let's nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Blood Curse Dice Set Available From Kraken Dice, New Sorceress Miniature Available From Brother Vinni, and New Lion Helms Available From Puppets War.

Wyrd's having to adjust things, just as everyone is these days. They've posted their March Newsletter which gives an updated release schedule for the next two months. Want to know when your next set of Malifaux minis will be hitting store shelves? You'll want to check it out.

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.

buccaw!

Over the seas, let's go, men. We're shovin' right off. We're shovin' right off again. *does a little jig on the deck*

Warlord Games' new Victory at Sea is hitting tabletops and they're giving us a look inside the different factions. Starting out, they're showing off the US navy, a relative newcomer to the world of large-scale naval operations. And though severely crippled at Pearl Harbor, it came back to be a major naval force during the war.

As Linkara has told us, there's no greater danger than that posed by the evil of Ancient Egypt! *Imperial March plays*

If you're looking to bring some of these mummies and daddies to your tabletop, you can now for Twisted. The Spirits of the Desert have risen from their tombs to once more stalk among the living. You can get your name on the list to get these figures now. And if you grab the whole crew, you get a nice 10% discount as well.

If you were thinking that the Shepherd's Guild's mascot would be a sheepdog or maybe a ram or something, you would be mistaken. Their mascot has a more porcine nature. It's Babe, the pig that thinks it's a sheepdog. In this preview, we get a look at just what they'll bring to the table (the game table, not the dinner table).

DGS Games, makers of Freeblades, was looking to heading to Adepticon up in Chicago. I wish I could've gone. But, as nobody's going, they have decided to turn your frown upside down and they've launched their Adeptigone sales event over in their webshop. They've also got a quartet of new figures that you can pick up for your games now.

Halfway through. We're halfway through the week already. As always, that's never a complaint. You know how much I love my weekends. Even if it doesn't look like there'll be much to do. It's a couple days of rest. But, in the meantime, along with all our preserved foods, let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Blacklist Miniatures Fantasy Figures Coming to Kickstarter Next Month, Kraken Dice Warehouse Sale Happening Now, and Keyfish Crit Goldfish Polyhedral Dice Sets Up On Kickstarter.

Liang Kai is a limited-edition mini for Infinity that you can get if you go to their website and pick up their new box set that's coming out. Want to know more about this warrior monk before he shows up at your door? Well, you're in luck, as Corvus Belli has posted a pretty in-depth look at just who Liang Kai is and what he brings to the world.
