Forge World snuck a new Blood Bowl star player into their webstore last night (well night here in the US where WSTZ has it’s HQ) those dirty FW rats! We were late to the breaking news but thought we’d give our reactions to the new Hakflem Skuttlespike.

Blood Bowl Made to Order, Deathzone Season 2, Goblins and more!

Earlier this week Warhammer Community teased us with the new Goblin team and with more teams from the Made to Order service, Necromantic Horrors and Shambling Undead. What they didn’t tell us was that High Elves and the Lizardmen were coming too! The Lizardmen has been notoriously hard to find in recent years and the big guy kroxigor has gone for pretty silly prices on eBay. Now’s your chance to buy them new from Games Workshop!

I Finally Got My Hands On Grak And Crumbleberry!

After fairly regular begging on interwebs forums and the Facebook Blood Bowl group, I have FINALLY managed to get my hands on a Grak and Crumbleberry set. Grak and Crumbleberry were only available to purchase from Warhammer World in Nottingham and since I live in Texas, there was no way I was getting my hands on them without help. They arrived in the mail today and it is time for another unboxing!

Hobby Tips: Simple Green

Recently, I hit some minis with either a bad can of primer or the humidity was off because I ended up blowing wet dust on a batch of ’em for my Warhammer Quest Silver Tower game. Scouting around online I read a little about a cleaning product called Simple Green that supposedly has the properties to remove paint and primer from plastic without melting the plastic itself. This is exactly what I needed so I sought out this emerald elixir.

Warhammer Quest – Branchwych & Bittergrub Hero

I have really enjoyed the relaunch of Warhammer Quest in the Age of Sigmar setting…surprisingly more than I enjoyed the original game in the mid 90s. However, the game has a real dearth of female characters, so I was glad to hear this Sylvaneth character was included in the app. I prefer analog over digital, so looked to see if she was also included in the recent card pack. She isn’t….too recent. The plan was to get an image of a Branchwych and crop it into a card template. Until I saw the following image…

More Blood Bowl Dice Incoming

More Blood Bowl dice are on the way according to Faeit 212, their source states stores are able to preorder new sets of dice and a new pitch.

A Facebook user posted an image showing dice for goblins, Reikland Reavers and The Gouged Eye. Not sure why we need more dice for humans and goblins, but you know they’re going to sell like hot cakes. Do hot cakes really sell that well? I don’t know, ask IHOP, they seem to be doing OK.

Also, if they’re going to do another set of human dice, why not theme them for the Bright Crusaders?

War of Sigmar also reports Death Zone Season 2, the goblin team and goblin booster pack are this week’s preorders.

Goblin Secret Weapons Revealed

Well, the goblin secret weapons aren’t so secret anymore. Today Warhammer Community unveiled the upcoming Forge World goblin secret weapon players for Blood Bowl. There will be a bomber, chainsaw player and ball-and-chain looney. The chainsaw player was teased previously in the Rumor Engine, with many correctly guessing the hooked chain blade to be a bad-moon shaped chainsaw.

No sign of a pogo stick player yet.

The secret weapon minis will go on sale first at this month’s Warhammer Fest event, no word on pre-order or release date.

White Dwarf May 2017 Review

Happy Birthday, Dwarf!

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary is the focus of the May 2017 issue of our favorite hobby magazine. After an extended period away from the periodical, I renewed our relationship last September with the big board game issue reboot. I have been pleased with the issues so far, particularly since the covers now feature illustrations again…something I’ve long missed. My son (10) enjoys this issue quite a bit as a new Age of Sigmar player and relatively new to the Games Workshop hobby. The many retrospectives sort of bought him up to speed with an overview of how White Dwarf began through to its current incarnation today.
