Warhammer 40k

It's just the theme of the day, unfortunately. Games Workshop has cancelled Warhammer Fest 2020 and other events all over the world. It's just not a good time to be getting together in big numbers.

Recently, a bunch of different governments put out updated guidelines for closings during the worldwide outbreak. Pretty much anything considered vital has been closed down. To comply with all these new regulations, Games Workshop is closing down their locations and to make sure that they're not spreading it via the mail, they're limited online sales as well.

40k was my first miniatures game I played. My friend and I split the 2nd edition starter box. He got the Marines. I got the Orks. And while I don't play it anymore, I'm still a greenskin through and through. And the greatest Ork Warlord was always Gazghkull Mak Uruk Thraka. Well, he's in a new box set available from Games Workshop, fighting against the Space Wolves and their champion, Ragnar Blackmane. The new Psychic Awakening Book is also available, if you'd like to up your mental content for the game.

Wanting to add some more nuns with guns to your collection? Now's a good time for it. Games Workshop has started taking orders for new transports, new units, and new characters for your Sisters of Battle armies. Head on over and get your name on the list now so you can be the first gamer on your block with these figures when they are shipped out next week.

Back when I lived in Kansas, I lived in a small town called Leonardville. It was fairly close to Fort Riley, a military base that had a specialty in artillery. Whenever they would be practicing, it sounded like thunder across the plains. And we were quite a few miles from the actual artillery range. So, I can only assume what it's like right next to it. So, I can only assume what the sound of a Legion Arquitor Bombard with Morbus Heavy Bombard going off is like. But you'll have to provide your own sound effects if you go order one from Forge World (which you can do now).

The GAMA Trade Show is going on. That means lots of new stuff to see. Games Workshop is there and they've got a whole bunch of things they're showing off. New Necromunda, Age of Sigmar, Adeptus Titanicus, and 40k are on display. Have yourselves a peek.

What's old is new again. I remember fighting against Howling Banshees back when I played 40k back in 2nd edition. Annoying, they were. And Jain Zar and her huge hair. Well, they're back again. And they're bringing some new Incubi along as well. You can order all of these figures from the Games Workshop webshop now.

*comes in unannounced*

Hello there. Sorry to interrempt...

... *burns everything to the ground, apparently, since that's what an Interemptor does*

If you'd like to burninate the countryside and add this new unit to your Dark Angels army, you can order them over on the Forge World website now.

Now, these figures bring back some memories. Back when I was playing 40k in 2nd and 3rd editions, one of my main opponents played Imperial Guard and had a couple different Valhallan units. And I know I faced down that Commissar Yarrick many times on the battlefield with my Orks. If you're looking to get some of these classic figures, Games Workshop is happy to make them just for you as long as you get your order in this week.

Ok, so maybe it's not technically a tank and is, instead, an armored mobile artillery piece. But that's just terminology. Anyway, Forge World is now taking orders for their new Legion Arquitor Bombard with Graviton-Charge Cannon kit. If you want to blow giant holes in the enemy's battle lines, this is a good choice for that. They're also taking orders for the softcover version of Horus Heresy Book 8.

<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!

Last week, Games Workshop started taking orders for new Sisters of Battle releases. This week, they continue that trend with even more units for the faction. But that's not all. They've also got the new Psychic Awakening: Ritual of the Damned book and a new Dark Angels character for you to pick up. Head on over and check it out.

The Blood Angels are the vampires of the Space Marine legions. But it's not all ripping apart throats. They do use ranged weapons too. In this instance, grenade launchers and volkite serpentas. These new units can be ordered now from Forge World to help flesh out your armies.

"I'll just wait until the new Sisters of Battle come out." It seems to be a phrase I've remembered hearing from my friends in the gaming community forever. Maybe it's just me, but it almost became a cliche. Well, for all those people that've been saying it, Games Workshop is doing something about it. They've started taking orders for brand new Sisters of Battle Codex and sets over in their webshop.

Incomiiiiiiiiiing! *boom! boom! boom!*

That's what your enemies will be shouting when you roll up to their fortifications with your new Arquitor Pattern Bombard. It's the latest vehicle available to order from Forge World for your 40k armies. Reach out. Reach out and touch someone with high explosives by putting your name down on the list to get this figure when it's released next week.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Finishing out the week with a Giant Robot Alert. And considering that this is a 40k titan, it's one of the giantest giant robot alerts. Forge World is taking orders for the new Macro Gatling Blaster for your Titans, as well as a Titan bundle where you can get the whole thing in one swoop.

Like happens so often with Forge World, it's two ends of the spectrum with their pre-orders for the week. On one side, you have a quick and nimble Blood Angles jump-pack squad for 40k. On the other side, there's the big and lumbering Ogre team expansion set for Blood Bowl. Sci-fi versus fantasy sports. Take your pick (even if it's both).

Who wants to just walk to battle? Nobody, that's who. Thankfully, there's plenty of armored transports that can get you there, such as the Gorgon Armoured Assault Transport, now available to order from Forge World. Get your figures to battle in style. They've also got a big Death Krieg force that you can put on your order list, if you so desire.

There's a new tank about to hit tabletops for the Space Marines. It's the Sabre Strike Tank, and it takes the chassis of the venerable Land Raider and pumps it full of weapons, some of them rather heavy in nature. Forge World has started taking orders for this new vehicle and bits over in their webshop.

Games Workshop has a trio of new books related to 40k for you to order in their webshop. Well, not just books, but a whole bunch of stuff, but the main focous is on the books. Starting off, there's the Psychic Awakening: Blood of Baal book which expands options for Blood Angels and Tyranids armies. There's the Kill Team Annual 2019 and Chapter Approved 2019 books as well, full of updated items for your forces.

With the Sisters of Battle hitting tabletops, Games Workshop is looking to bring back some of their own figures from times gone by. However, they're not just ramping production fully back up. They're only making what people want to order. So, if you'd like some of these classic figures, get your name on the list now to add to your 40k armies.

It's Friday. Woo! Time this week seemed to be entirely on its own course. Some days flew by. Some hours took forever. Though many days I said to myself, "Wow, it's already ----day," it still felt like it took a long time to get through. Maybe I'm just excited about game tomorrow. Whatever it might be, at the moment, it's time to get you some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Titan Weapons Available to Order From Forge World, Puppets War Announces Black Friday Sale, Kraken Dice Black Friday Sale Happening Now, and New Great Axes Available From Puppets War.

Sisters of Battle. They've been something 40k players have been waiting for. Now, you can head over to the Games Workshop website and... well, they're sold out there right now... but you can still maybe pick it up at your LGS. They've got a whole army set, as well as starter sets for some other factions, if you're so inclined.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Yes, it's the Giant Robot Alert going off for the new Forge World items on order this week. There's a Dreadnaught body, a couple sets of Dreadnaught weapons, and even a complete Dread if you want to just buy everything all at once. Let's take a look.

Many people feel that the Ultramarines are the "boring Chapter" for the Space Marines. I don't know that that's entirely accurate. Maybe back in the day when they were the "generic chapter" that Marines defaulted to out of the codex, but not so much anymore. But anyway, whether you feel that or not, there's a new Contemptor Dread for the chapter that you can order now from Forge World.
