Miniatures


For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.

I mean, I like rain. I like storms. But I'm not really thrilled when they cause huge amounts of damage, I.E. - become Ruinstorms. But that's just what you're getting to order from Forge World this week. There's new Ruinstorm Daemon Brutes that you can get for your 40k Horus Heresy armies. Place your orders now.

Well, the world's come to an end again. Damnit, Karl, I told you to stop messing around with those vials. Anyway, now that society has crumbled, we need to make it in the radioactive wasteland. Good thing we played a whole bunch of Fistful of Lead: Wasteland Warriors before the fall. And you can, too, as this new expansion for Fistful of Lead is available now.

I don't trust the ocean. You'll never see me on a beach, about to go diving in. I mean, sure there's all the terrible polution that's pretty bad. But there's also all those monstrous sea creatures out there. I'm with Billy Connally, we don't belong in there. Sure, these are only miniatures from AntiMatter Games, but how can we know that they don't actually live out there and are just waiting for me to dip my toe in? Eh?

"Crashed escape pod? PB, shouldn't that go in the Terrain Corner?"

If it were just a crashed escape pod piece of terrain, yes, it would. However, Fantasy Flight is giving you more than that in this Star Wars: Legion expansion box. You are also getting figures for C-3PO and R2-D2, along with stat cards for using them both in Rebel as well as Republic forces. Hence, full regular post. Let's take a look.

Jingle bears! Jingle bears! Jingle all the bears! *jinglejinglejingle*

What's that? You're not ready for the holiday season yet? it's not even actually Autumn yet? Well, that doesn't mean we can't start looking ahead to December. Privateer Press is, showing off their upcoming releases. Get your holiday list ready now.

Warlord Games has a ton of games that they make. It's just a huge catalog. And it's been a while since we've heard about a few of these, but that doesn't mean they're entirely dead and gone. In fact, Warlord Games is posting up some extra, experimental, and additional rules for them. Check out experimental rules for Konflikt '47, creating an army of monsters in Warlords of Erehwon, and creating characters for yourself in Strontium Dog.

Characters in Star Wars go through many arcs during thei saga. For example, Luke Skywalker starts the very first movie of the series as a simple farmboy and ends up being the last Jedi. And then the movie series ends and that's all that ever happens. Since characters go through these changes, it only makes sense to have multiple versions of them in Star Wars: Legion. that's why we're getting an Operative version of him soon. In this preview, you can get a peek at what he'll be like.

A corrupt Emperor, pitting his people against one-another. An exiled hero, whom the populace hopes makes a return soon. Demons, bound after an ancient war, trying to re-enter our world. That's what awaits you in Yohei, a new skirmish game coming to Kickstarter next week from Draco Ideas and Eclipse Editorial.

The American Football Season is underway. While they're hitting the gridiron in stadiums all over the US, you can be doing the same in your LGS. And if you're looking to expand to a new team, you don't have to go any further than RN Estudio, who have a new Amphibian team available in their website.

Atomic Mass Games is bringing a new superhero miniatures game to your tabletops with Marvel: Crisis Protocol. But how will different characters work? You might've seen a stat card, but what do the numbers and symbols mean? In this preview, we get a look at exactly that.

Here's a game we've not heard about for a little bit, but it's nice to see it coming back. TTCombat has a quartet of new Carnevale kits that you can order over in their webshop. I mean, one's got a bionic rhino and a bionic crocodile. I might pick these fellas up just because.

Just a little update from Forge World this week, figuratively and literally and ... pun-ily? Anyway, they are taking orders for their new Sharriffs of the Shire set. Need to keep your hobbits in line? These two are the ones to make sure that it stays so. No adventure. No excitement. Maybe a giant pumpkin.

While the Korean peninsula has been taking up much of Warlord Games' releases these days, that doesn't mean that they're not working on other, older games as well. For example, they also have a new kit for Blood Red Skies as well as Cruel Seas that you can order over in their webshop now. If you're looking for some sea or sky action for your WWII games, this is up your alley.

The logistics behind getting gaming products out to you, the populace, are huge and complicated. And try as they might, sometimes things don't go as planned. Any small hiccup along the way can cause a change in when product is available. So, with that in mind, WizKids is sad to say that they are pushing back the release of the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, the Dark Phoenix Saga set until the end of the month.

Three factions are getting reinforcements this month for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game from CMON. House Stark is calling on their longtime allies, House Tully, and getting the Tully Cavaliers. The Lannisters are using the faithful to fight for them with the addition of the Poor Fellows. Meanwhile, further north than even House Stark, the Night's Watch are bringing their Veterans of the Watch as well as their Builder Crossbowmen (pting! pting!) to the field.

Games Workshop is bringing M&Ms to your games of Warcry. No, not the tasty chocolate candies that melt in your mouth, not in your hand. I mean Monsters & Mercenaries. Want to add new vicious beasts to your force? This is where you can find them. There's even a new campaign to undertake. Along with the book, there's a host of new figures you can order as well.

The German forces had a long time to reinforce the coast of Europe during their occupation. They knew that, eventually, the Allies were bound to attempt a landing. When it finally came, they were as ready as possible. To represent that on your Flames of War tabletops, Battlefront has some new D-Day Germans that you can order from them now.

The high seas. The waves. The salt spray. The miles of open water. The flying cannonballs. The splinters as your ship's ripped apart. The drowning as your ship goes down...

Man, that got dark really fast. But such is life in the naval forces in Black Seas, the new fleet-sized miniatures game from Warlord Games. It's armada combat in the age of sail. You can pre-order the rulebook, starter set, and several different fleets now.

Wyrd has another preview they've posted for The Other Side, their upcoming miniatures game. This time around, it's a g-g-g-ghost! *leaps into a coworker's arms*

Yes, they're the Gwisin, strange apperitions in the service of Anton de Wils. Have yourselves a look.

For many people here in the US, once Gen Con is over, they might feel that the biggest show of the convention season is over. But those over in Europe know better. Essen Spiel is still coming up, and Fantasy Flight will be there with a special, limited edition of Obi-Wan Kenobi for Star Wars: Legion.

Getting just the right figure to represent your character or monsters on the tabletop when playing an RPG is a big thing for me, and I'm sure it is for some of you as well. And you may feel that the regular Icons of the Realms figures just aren't good enough for you. Well, you're in luck, as WizKids is coming out with a premium line of figures.

If you're like me, you like to personalize your minis collections as much as possible. You might paint up your figures in special colors. Maybe you get special bases. Or you get custom dice. Now, Fantasy Flight is letting you add some more personality via their faction-specific Damage Decks (note: they're the same cards, but feature a different ship for the artwork depending on the faction in question).

It's apparently interview day here on TGN as we have another for you. This time around, it's Osprey Publishing sitting down with author Joseph McGquire. He's the man behind the Reality's Edge cyberpunk skirmish rules, and Osprey wanted to get to know him a bit more. What can people expect out of the game? You can check out the interview to see.

Privateer Press had a bit of a strange release issue ... umm... issue with their August and September releases, making them be split up a bit. That sometimes just happens in the gaming world, as all of you are well aware, I'm sure. Well, there's a trio of new kits available that you can pick up. There's two Infernal Horrors as well as a redone Buccaneer light jack.
