New Beastmen models preview

Images of the upcoming Beastman release have been floating around for a few days now. Games Workshop have lauched a poster displaying some of the new models. The responses I’ve seen on a few forums has been very negative. While I can understand some of the comments, I really think everyone should wait for official launch before making judgement.

Forge World today announced advanced orders for 3 new sets:

Horus Heresy boardgame reborn!

The hottest news right now for pre-Heresy fanatics (and a great many others) is Fantasy Flight’s announcement of recreating the Horus Heresy boardgame.

You can checkout the full game information at FF’s website here.

What excites me most, at least until the game is in my hands, is the inclusion of models and Horus Heresy artwork. Some art seems to have been used from the Sabretooth games Horus Heresy cardgame, or at least heavily inspired by. This image, as far as I can tell, is unique however. Damn fine it is!

Incoming! Legion of the Damned

Games Workshop have just revealed the long-awaited release of the new Legion of the Damned models. We’ve seen pictures of them from Games Day and waited eagerly. I think the sculpts are a fine addition to the range, particularly with some classic armour being incorporated into the models. Let’s take a look at each model from a pre-Heresy perspective.
