Via War of Sigmar, Forge World has announced what will be available at the Forge World Open Day. The minotaur will be 20 GBP and it will be Forge World, not a GW plastic release. Also the token packs for Chaos Renegades and Underworld Denizens will be 8 BGP each. I was hoping the two packs would be sold together, but that doesn’t look the case. Kind of seems like a lot of money for just a couple of tokens …
When James texted me a couple of nights ago and asked me if I wanted to have a game night, my answer was a simple, “always!” When he asked me what I wanted to play, I decided to suggest a game that we haven’t played in a LONG time. I suggested the 1987 Games Workshop boardgame, Block Mania. As the box says in the lower left hand corner, Block Mania is, “a 2000 AD Judge Dredd Boardgame.” Block Mania is a skirmish game between rival housing blocks of Mega-City 1, fighting to destroy their neighbor’s block.
I’ve always theorized that crowd funding attacks in waves. Just when you swear off pledging money for a product that hopefully arrives in the distant future, your eyeballs are assailed with ripe new products looking to syphon your hard earned paycheck. Just last year I was loudly proclaiming my independence from the crowd funding racket. Alas, starting with Iron Golems it appears that the cycle has begun anew! This time around instead of another potential mound of unpainted models, we have an offering that appeals to the spirit of Fantasy Football and maybe even lets the wallet off a bit easy this time.
My local Blood Bowl league is getting a bit of a reboot in its premiere season. This gives me a chance to ditch my crippled high elves in favor of something else. After taking a beating with the elves, I must admit I’m an elf failure, unable to score in four games, but I digress, I was feeling a bit dejected. I could fall back on my tried and true humans but wasn’t really feeling it or any other teams, really. Until I latched on to the idea of Chaos Pact or Chaos Renegades as Games Workshop calls them in the latest edition of Blood Bowl.
Big Trouble in Little China is the greatest film ever made. That is an undeniable fact. As kids, my brother and I used to watch this movie ALL THE TIME. There was one summer where I swear we watched this movie at least once a day, every single day. I have seen this film more times than I can begin to count, and it is still my favorite movie to this day. With that in mind, I have NO IDEA how this flew under my radar, but there apparently is a board game being developed based upon the film. I just happened to stumble upon this article a couple of nights ago.
