It's time to once again take a look at a preview from the Explorer's Society, which will be Malifaux's 8th Faction. This time around, we're getting a look at the Brocken Spectre and his amazing neckwear. How will you be integrating this new faction into your game? Will you be picking them up or just having to brace against them on the opposite side of the field?
Warmachine, with its arcane turbines and flair for the electronic, especially in the case of factions like Cygnar and the Cult of Cyriss, always had a bit of a sci-fi vibe going for them, if you ask me. Well, now, Privateer Press is leaving nothing to doubt. They're coming out with an actual sci-fi game set in the far future of the Warmachine/Hordes world. It's called Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika and it's coming to Kickstarter soon.
Whoooooooooooooooooah! We're halfway there!
Whooo-OH! It'll be the weekend relatively soon!
Ok, so I'm not exactly Bon-Jovi. Who is?
Anyway, it's still true that we're halfway to the weekend. I'm looking forward to an Eberron game that I still need to make a character for. Might try and do that this afternoon. We'll see. But while I'm crunching the numbers on a new PC, you should crunch on a bite-sized gaming story.
On the platter today we have: Norse Miniatures Adventurers and Adversaries 2 Kickstarter Launching Soon
There's many reasons to possibly miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. Heck, this month, I'm running a little tight, so I've not been able to put in as much into pledges as I'd wanted or back every campaign I was hoping to. However, next month, I should have a couple more bucks and can head on in. That's what's possible right now if you missed out on the Infinity Defiance campaign. They're taking late pledge pre-orders now over on gamefound.
Are you ready to Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuumbleslam!? I certainly hope you are, because TTCombat has released a whole new edition of the game. Take your high-flying, top-turbuckle, leg-lock action to new heights as you look to pin your opponents in the ultimate wrestling game.
Games Workshop has a whole lot of things going on in their webshop this week. There's a new Necromunda book and unit. They've got some new Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game kits. But they've also got a bunch of heroes for Age of Sigmar now available individually. So, if you've been wanting some of these figures but didn't want to have to buy a huge set to get them, now you can. As I say, it's a lot going on.
It feels like it's been a while since we've had a new set of releases from Brother Vinni, but the long wait is over. If you're in the market for some new SAGA figures, particularly troops armed with either axes or longswords, then you're in luck, as that's exactly what the new figures are armed with. Have yourselves a look.
Modiphius is giving you a special treat this Valentine's Day. They've bundled together some of their games and accessories and have created giant bundle deals that can save you off of the regular price. But together and save on games like the Star Trek RPG, John Carter of Mars, Infinity RPG, and the Conan RPG.
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert!
In this instance, there's a new titan for Adeptus Titanicus available to order from Forge World. But that's not all they've got this week. There's also the new Inner Circle Knights Cenobium unit for the Dark Angels. They have such sights to show you!
There's tons of different reasons that someone might miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. But just because the timer's run out doesn't mean that you've lost the chance to get all the cool extras and special pricing. For example, Painting Polygons is now taking late pledges for their Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove campaign. Want to get yourself some babypuppies and pretty kittes for your D&D games? You can get your name on the list to get them now.
Last Sword Miniatures is running a new Kickstarter campaign to get you some more elven figures for your 9th Age games. This time around, they're focusing on the more elites and highborn of the army, with several different types of knights and much more.

This time around, it's Valentine's Day and they've got a new Scheme for Malifaux as well as an Augment for Through the Breach. Add a bit of love to your games today.
Tomorrow, we'll get the next full batch of updates for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. If you're like me, whenever a game you play is getting updated, you're chomping at the bit for every bit of info you can get. Will your favorite units change? Will a unit that gives you trouble get updated? What's going to happen in the meta? Well, to help out some, CMON has another preview of what changes will be coming, along with a look forward at the game after those updates hit the street.
The Clone Wars saw the clone armies of the Republic facing off against the robotic forces of the Separatists. But despite one army being made up of clones and the other coming off an industrial assembly line, not every trooper was identical. There were elites, specialists, and more. In this preview, we get a look at two new units coming for Star Wars: Legion that are a step up from the average squad.
With the Luftwaffe straffing down from overhead, the Allies at Dunkirk had to make a hasty retreat, getting onto whatever could float to try and leave the continent and escape to Britain. In this scenario for Cruel Seas, that intense escape is played out on your tabletops. Interconnected with the other scenarios posted for Bolt Action and Blood Red Skies, it's a multi-game event.
WWII did not get off to a good start for the Allies. The combined armies of France, Britain, and Belgium were chased all the way to the sea where they had to perform a daring escape on the shores of Dunkirk. In this new scenario for Bolt Action, players take on the role of these opposing forces, the Allies working to get as many men to safety while the Germans are trying to wipe them out completely.
Warlord Games has a new scenario out for Blood Red Skies. The beginning of WWII saw the Allies being chased by rapidly-advancing German forces as they tried to make it out to the coast. Once there, the Allies had to form a very hasty retreat at the beaches of Dunkirk while the Luftwaffe attacked from above. In this scenario, you can replay that harrowing ordeal on your tabletops.
Gaming is a global industry. Games can be designed in one country, developed in another, and produced in a third for shipping all over the world. So, while something may not be taking place right in our back yard, it can still have an effect on the gaming world. For example, the deadly Coronavirus epidemic. Wyrd has announced that due to this terrible disease, their releases are going to be delayed.
WizKids' Organized Play events let players get some cool prizes, including minis they wouldn't be able to get elsewhere. They're currently showing off their Green Arrow and the Justice Society OP kit for HeroClix, including, of course, Green Arrow and some of his friends. Have yourselves a look.
Padme Amidala wasn't your average monarch. She didn't just sit on her throne, occasionally make a speech, and generally stay to herself. She was ready to get out there and fight just like anyone else when the Separatists came calling. Soon, Star Wars: Legion players will be able to add her to their forces. But not just her, Cad Bane is coming along as well, representing said Separatists. In this preview, we get a little look at what you can expect when they are released.
Gamers, by and large, want to be the first ones to get the new stuff when it's released. They want the latest figures as early as they can. Well, if you're a HeroClix player, you'll want to know about WizKids' pre-release events for the upcoming Justice League Unlimited set for HeroClix.
The Trade Federation has a huge military industrial complex behind it. Their factories are able to pump out droids, weapons, and vehicles at an astounding rate. One of those iconic vehicles is the AAT Battle Tank. It's armed with all manner of weaponry to help the Trade Federation assert itself as a major presence in the Separatist movement. Soon, you'll be able to add this formidable tank to your forces in Star Wars: Legion.
April showers bring May flowers. And Mayflowers bring Pilgrims. But May will simply be bringing some new releases for both Monsterpocalypse and Riot Quest from Privateer Press. They're showing off the new items that will be available. And I almost could put this in a Terrain Corner article, since Monsterpocalypse is getting a whole bunch to build up your city (for you to then bash to pieces, of course).
Many of you have probably see a game of Kings of War: Vanguard being played. Or maybe you've only seen posts online about it. You've been curious and want to know more.
