Definitely a couple of different eras on display here today from Warlord Games. There's some new Cruel Seas figures, letting you up-gun your fleets a bit. Then there's some Hail Caesar figures, the Achaeans, for whom, slings and javelins were pretty far ahead in the technology department, along with the early Libyan chariot figure. Let's take a closer look.
Get me a jury and show me now to say, "In July" and I'll... make cheese for you.
Yes, it's July. That means that literally half the year is over. Time goes by so quick, doesn't it? I don't know about you, but since the Solstice, I've been listening to my October playlists (mostly October Rust) because I would like Summer to go by nice and quick so we can get to my favorite season.
What does that have to do with gaming? Well, I'm typing about it and now I'm going to type about terrain. So... that?
Anyway, today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Fire Bowls and Pillars Available from Tabletop-Art, Daedalus Gaming Mat Available Separately From Micro Art Studio, New Hive City Column Available From Tabletop Scenics, and Redoubts Available From Sarissa Precision.
Warlord Games had a big release week this week. There's new Bolt Action figures for both WWII as well as the Korean War. Same goes for Blood Red Skies. And then they have some Crimean War sets for Black Powder, if you like your historical miniatures going back a little further in time. It's a lot to look at, so let's dive in.
The Korean War is sometimes called The Forgotten War since, well, it doesn't get nearly as much attention as WWII or Vietnam. And yet it was a very important war with effects very much felt today. Warlord Games is giving you a chance to bring that war to your tabletops with Bolt Action: Korea, a new supplement that lets you recreate those battles. Pre-orders will begin in just over a day.
Warlord Games has some new kits that are available on their website. You can pick up some new Riflemen for Black Powder. Then there's the Edgehill Characters or Pike & Shotte. And then, uh... there's Oxen. These can be used in just about all of Warlord Games' games.

"Nothing! It's free!"

Ok, that aside, it's time to add to your Soviet air force with a pair of new sets you can pre-order from Warlord Games for Blood Red Skies. Let's take a look.
The gaming company from Nottingham... No, the other one... the other other one... No, it's Warlord Games. They're teaming up with Mythicos Studios. This includes new offices in New York, as well as a bringing together of different game lines and expanding offerings for the tabletop.
The Japanese air force is making its way to the scene in Blood Red Skies. Warlord Games has a new Imperial Japanese Expansion Pack, as well as a pair of squadrons, available for the game. There's also a pair of Konflikt '47 releases, for those that like their WWII with a bit of Weird thrown in.
Warlord Games has a new game on the horizon. It's SPQR, a new set of rules for fighting with warbands in ancient times. They have started taking pre-orders for the rulebook, as well as a new 2-player starter set.
Also thrown into the mix today is a new piece for the Germans in Bolt Action. Because you can never have enough Bolt Action when it comes to Warlord Games.
There's a new landing craft and Amphibious Assault Rules available from Warlord Games... though they're for two different games. Yeah, odd coincidence, but here we are. The new landing craft is for Cruel Seas and will be out later this month, while the Amphibious rules are for Bolt Action and you can get those now. They're still worth checking out, though.
It's a new week. And we're into a new month as well. We've made it to June, and Summer (or Winter, for you Southern Hemisphere watchers) will be here soon as well. How the time does fly. "Noticing the calendar" aside, it's time to get you some new terrain pieces to make your gaming tables look good.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: 15mm Roman Fort Available From Baueda, New Hive City News Stands Available From Tabletop Scenics, New: Bolt Action Rural Village Set, New: Sarissa Scenery Sets, and New: Bolt Action Battlefield Accessories.
Warlord Games is coming at you with some more Bolt Action releases. They've got US and British Airborne figures, pre-orders for their upcoming D-Day book, a Luftwaffe artillery piece, and more (including one of the most famous British generals, Moooooonty!). Let's take a look.
From what I've been able to tell, Rorke's Drift for the British is sort of like the Alamo for Americans. It's a battle that, while rather small in scale, has lived large in the historical records, and one that's gone back to many times in reference. Warlord Games is coming out with a new Rorke's Drift set for Black Powder, including brand-new sculpts of some of the famous individuals that fought there. Pre-orders are available now.
The fun thing about having Monday off is that it only kinda feels like Tuesday, but it's already Wednesday. Whee!
That means that it's time to snack on some bite-sized gaming stories as we make our way quickly back to the weekend.
Today on the platter we have: New Panhuman Head Packs Available From Warlord Games, Precision Aircraft Aluminum Dice Coming from Kraken Dice, and New Chaos Legionary Shoulderpads Available From Kromlech.
A new ship will be steaming its way into the waters of Cruel Seas soon. It's the Imperial Japanese Navy IJN No. 101-class landing ship. It'll will be coming out in June, but Warlord Games is giving you a look at it now.
It's getting to be almost 100 degrees here in GA this week. It really makes me long for those cool days back when I lived in Chicago. There, one could possibly get use out of a pair of snowshoes. Not so much here. But I can still live vicariously through my little mans, including the new Battle on Snowshoes set for Black Powder that's available from Warlord Games now.
It's some regular WWII and some alternate-history WWII that Warlord Games has for you this week. There's a new walker for Konflikt '47 and then a group of new boats for your Cruel Seas games. Let's dig on in and see what we have.
Warlord Games has updated the rules set for Warlords of Erehwon, their fantasy miniatures game from Rick Priestley. They've posted up an updated version (not really a 2.0, but just reworking the original rules) as well as updating the E&C and FAQ. Make sure you're using the right rules!
Warlord Games likes to cover a lot of territory with their releases. They have quite a diverse catalog, after all. In this week's set of releases, they have special deals for Bolt Action troop transports (because who wants to walk to battle?), as well as some new Blood Red Skies squadrons. Finally, they have a pair of Pike & Shotte kits, because it's not all just WWII going on.
Drones are quickly becoming an everyday part of life here in the modern age. You can see them buzzing around most downtown areas as well as being used for reconnaisance and other military uses. In Beyond the Gates of Antares, they're an everyday part of battlefield life. There's some new drone swarms available for the NuHu faction over on Warlord Games' website.
It's all WWII today for Warlord Games. They have a pair of new releases for Blood Red Skies as well as some support units for Bolt Action available over in their webshop. So, whether you're fighting on the front lines, or high above it all, there's some new figures for you.
Some pages in history are written on the grand scale. One such page is D-Day, the landing at Normandy by Allied forces during WWII. Warlord Games is looking to bring the epicness of that day to your tabletop with their The Longest Day set for Bolt Action. They're taking pre-orders now.
Three eras of warfare are on display this week from Warlord Games. There's a pair of armored carriers (ok, it's really the same, but one's got a tarp over it) for Bolt Action. There's some new Vikings for Hail Caesar. But arguably the big one is a new Black Powder supplment available to pre-order called Dark and Bloody Ground. Let's take a look at them all.
It's all WWII today for Warlord Games' releases. There's new kits for Cruel Seas, Blood Red Skies, and Bolt Action for you to order (or pre-order in some cases). So, whether you like your 1940s action on the ocean, in the sky, or on the land, you've got your options laid out for you.
It's a real shotgun blast of releases coming from Warlord Games today. There's a pair of new releases for Blood Red Skies. Bolt Action is also getting some action with a few Belgian releases. Pike & Shotte gets their first release in quite some time with a Swedish Field Commander. Even Beyond the Gates of Antares has some new figures.
