The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Strategy Battle Game

I’ve been too occupied with my Masters course lately to post anything on here, but I’m pretty excited about this so I thought I’d share it. You’ve probably seen this by the time you get to my site but here you go…

Chaos Space Marine Leaked White Dwarf Pages

That Helldrake looks amazing!!! That is all…

SILO41

Faeit 212 has managed to get their hands on some snaps of October’s White Dwarf not only the new look, which is no surprise at all considering the type face has been on the website for a while, but some snaps of the new (and utterly mental) Chaos Space Marine units. Being a sneaky sod I’ve robbed them and put them up here too. And by the looks of things GW are embracing the techno-organic look across the entire range. Could this be (finally) be the end to Space Marine tanks with spikes glued to them?

Apparently this big bastard is called a Helldrake. Which is nice.

The Horus Heresy Book One – Betrayal

There’s a new video up telling more about the Horus Heresy series from Forge World, specifically Book One – Betrayal. In the video are a few sneak peeks at special characters, campaigns and a few glimpses of new models including a Space Marine jetbike, tank and varying armour.

The video will show more so take a look…

Dark Vengeance Delayed

SILO41

Sources within the Games Workshop revealed to me yesterday (and since been all but confirmed by Bell of Lost Souls) that the standard edition of Dark Vengeance will be delayed.

There’s some speculation about why but my source tells me that it’s a combination of the Limited Edition box not being as limited as was originally implied and the sales of said box not being as strong because customers are holding off for the cheaper box.

It’s a rare thing for me to feel sorry for the Games Workshop as the limited edition box was a nice idea. Personally I’d like them to pay a bit more attention to the video games market to understand what a limited edition box should be. One extra bloke a special box does not make. But that aside, they attempted to garner some excitement with the release and it all seems to have fallen…

Daemons of Chaos Releases

After GW posted this video hinting at something Chaosy;

…it now looks like there’s going to be a Codex update in next months for Daemons of Chaos along with new minis.

This video shows the new models along with new Finecast moulds, although the quality isn’t great it seems to confirm that there will be new models and rules for Daemons of Chaos.

 

Seeing as I was away during the release of Warhammer 40k 6th Edition, I’ve been pretty quiet recently just catching up on everything that’s going on. But I thought I’d share this news of the contents of the 6th Edition Boxset contents.
