Scattershot set of pre-orders from Games Workshop this week. Though their main banner was about the new Warhammer Underworlds set, called Beastgrave - The Grymwatch, I'm most excited about the new Lizardmen Blood Bowl team. Go Pangaea Punishers! *waves little flag with my own team's logo on it* There's also new Blacsktone Fortress sets you can pick up. I did say that it was scattershot after all.
The latest set for Warhammer Underworlds is available to order from Games Workshop. It's called Beastgrave and it's more than just a new set, it's a new core set, giving you new updated rules for Warhammer Underworlds, two full warbands, and all the extras needed to play. You can get just the base set, an "all-in" set, or the various extras like dice, card sleeves, and such along those lines.
Well, that's a kit that's been around for quite some time mostly unchanged. It's the Leman Russ. Games Workshop has retooled the old Imperial Guard mainstay. There's also a new Warhammer Underworlds deck called Power Unbound. Both of these are available to pre-order now from their website.
Adepticon is happening up in Chicago. I hope everyone that's there and reading this will head to Portillo's for me at least once. Italian Beef (dipped), Polish sausage (Maxwell Street Style), and a Hot Tamale. If you're not there, then you've not had a chance to see all the previews that Games Workshop has going on. So, while I can't give you a good meal through this format, I can give you those previews.
Quite a lot going on from Games Workshop this week. There's new expansion books for both the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game as well as Adeptus Titanicus. There's new minis for those games, too. Not to be outdone, Warhammer Underworlds has two new mobs, who also have dice sets. It's sci-fi. It's fantasy. It's something for just about everyone.
Games Workshop is once again hitting two ends of the spectrum with their pre-orders for this week. On one hand, there's the Adeptus Titanicus with new Warhound Titans *giant robot alert goes off*. Then, on the other side, in Nightvault, they have some new releases, including Tzeentch and Grots. Giant robots. Little goblins. Hard to get much more extreme than that.
Games Workshop is filling up their pre-order page over on their website. They've got some new 40k, some new Kill Team, some new Warhammer Underworlds, and even more up for order. Arguably the biggest things include the new 40k 2-player starter set, Wake the Dead, and the new Kill Team crews which include Tau and Necrons.
It's officially Autumn (or Spring, for you in the Southern Hemisphere). So that means it's officially the season for spoopy. Games Workshop is certainly jumping in on that with their latest pre-releases. They're taking orders for Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault, as well as extra sets and accessories (including several sets of dice).
