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.

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.
