There comes a time in every boy’s life when he has to admit that he’ll never be as cool as Tom Bloom. Creator of the good webcomic Kill Six Billion Demons and the writer of the best mech RPG Lancer, he now descends on miniature wargames. His contribution? A blazing fast and verily flash skirmish war-game Magnagothica: Maleghast.
One of the most persistent images of humanity past its fall involves flooded cities that have been reclaimed by the jungle. So if the only thing that that formula was missing was dinosaurs, then The Drowned Earth has you covered. It’s a dynamic skirmish miniature wargame where your hero might just be riding a dino.
Look, we all know that Shadespire is going to be the real name for Warhammer Underworlds for at least a few years. You know what else is unlikely to change? Forge World’s unwillingness to engage with these smaller Games Workshop projects. Which is a shame, since Horus Heresy Shadespire would be entirely boss.
Today, Forge World finally made it possible for buyers to pay in whatever local currency they have. The caveat is that the new prices were set at a fixed conversion rate as decided by Forge World. This has lead to price increases: about 10-20% for Europeans, ~20% for Americans and around 30-40% for the Australians (which were already getting fleeced).
You already know that I have a Goliath gang for the new Necromunda Underhive game. I didn’t stop there, though: I bought the entire Necromunda starter box with no intentions of splitting. So naturally, I had to build and paint an Escher gang, too. Here are the Blacklights.
Necromunda Underhive is a fun game! But even before I had the chance to try it, I had spent some time reading the books from the old game. That happened years before any new game was on the horizon. So when the new edition came out, I bought the starter immediately. I got to painting both gangs. And I finally bothered to take pictures of my entire Necromunda Goliath gang!
Games Workshop is mostly known for Warhammer 40.000 and I’m well known for whining about it. However, GW also produces a Lord of the Rings miniature wargame. It had been languishing for the longest time, beset by questionable business practices and Tom Kirby’s disdain. The new management is a little more pro-active about maintaining the property. Forgeworld is releasing miniatures from the Hobbit movie in expensive resin. Warhammer Community publishes articles around it.
