Fantasy Flight Announces Epic Battles and Large Ships for X-Wing 2nd Edition

It's a Two-Fer Friday in X-Wing announcements from Fantasy Flight. Starting off, they are bringing back the huge ships to the game, offering an upgrade kit for those that already have them, or simply reissuing them for those that don't. Then, for those that have a million ships and want to use them all together at once, they are also adding in Epic Battles, taking the game from a skirmish game to a more mass-army type of game with new formations and larger point values.

Knight Models Announces Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game 2nd Edition

Knight Models is working on a new edition of their Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game. Though, those that have already been playing and enjoying the game don't seem to have much to worry about.

Fantasy Flight Previews Tauntaun Riders For Star Wars: Legion

Sure, it's summer here in the US, but those south of the equator are right in the middle of winter. They've got their heavy coats on and dealing with the harsh conditions of cold, wind, and snow (or maybe not, but they are for the sake of this intro). In such conditions, I bet they wish they had a nice tauntaun to ride around on. But even if they don't actually exist, your little mans will be able to ride them into battle with the Tauntaun Riders set for Star Wars: Legion. We get a preview of them here. No word yet on how the figures smell.

Forge World has a new character from their Horus Heresy Character Series for you to order. It's Chapter Master Raldoron of the Blood Angels, seen here making sure his equipment is well taken care of.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-orders For Warhammer 40k: Apocalypse

I don't know what it is about Warhammer 40k, but it seems to just end up with people owning huge armies. I know my Ork army was massive. Even my Dark Angels army would push the scales in terms of number of minis. And, of course, if you have all those figures, you sometimes want to see them all on the table at once. It's just big and impressive. And that's what you can do with Warhammer 40k: Apocalypse. Games Workshop is taking pre-orders for this new mode, as well as a whole ton of battle sets, over on their website now.
