Necromunda Trailer

Hold onto your hats, the first official trailer for Necromunda has landed!

The trailer shows off the two starter gangs as well as previewing the tiles to fight over. It also confirms that the boxed game is out in November.

Excited? We certainly are!

Check out the trailer below:

Blightwar – New boxed set out 2/9

So we have some more details on “Blightwar” and it turns out its a new Age of Sigmar starter set featuring a Stormcast Vanguard force facing off against Nurgle Daemons!

As well as a huge pile of miniatures we also get two new characters, including my new favourite model – Horticulous Slimux

For the Stormcast we get the leading lady of the box – Neave Blacktalon of the Knights-Zephyros

In addition to models we also get some new allegiance abilities including a new mechanic featuring Nurgle’s cycle of renewal and decay, which looks reminiscent of the Tallyman’s buffs!

I’m a huge fan of all things Nurgle, as those of you on our Instagram will know, so very excited to pick these up to add to my force! And I’m sure fellow Spruer Dave will be making some Stormcast re-enforcements!

We will be doing a full unboxing video and some battle reports once the set is out, but until then check out the full unveiling on Warhammer Community!

Star Wars: Legion

Some exciting news from Fantasy Flight Games today with the announcement of their new Star Wars tabletop miniatures game “Legion!”

The starter box is due out early next year and includes thirty-three miniatures! It features: Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Rebel Troopers, Stormtroopers, an AT-RT, and Speeder Bikes!

 

This will be followed by more waves of models to further expand your army!

The models are not painted, unlike X-wing, so for those who love the hobby side of wargaming will be able to get their fix painting up stormtroopers and dark lords of the sith!

We are a little out from release, but the game is looking to retail at $89.95 – so probably looking at a £80-£90 price point in the UK, putting it in the same bracket as Dark Imperium.

Its unclear at this point if these are multi part kits, however as its Fantasy Flight I’m guessing these are prebuilt models that will be good to go on the battlefield naked, or painted up ready for gaming!

We are huge Star Wars fans here at Sprues and Brews so will certainly be keeping our eye on this one!

General’s Handbook 2017 Release Date!

Good news everyone! Games Workshop have revealed that the General’s Handbook 2017 is up for pre-order 19/08/17 and releasing on 26/08/17

Now we will be able to make the pure squig force we have always dreamed of!

Alongside updated rules, new battleplans and revised points costs we also see a few mechanics and rules brought into the mix such as allies and Open War Cards – these will also be available to order alongside the book!

Games workshop are also releasing a very tasty sounding “Warlords Edition” that includes cards for each of the battleplans along with tokens and markers! We will certainly be refreshing the GW site at 10am Saturday to try and get hold of one of these!

With the new allies mechanic GW are also releasing a range of boxes containing approximately 400 points designed to slot into an existing 2k points army! Some brilliant looking stuff here, and I’m very interested into seeing how much these retail for!

We will be back with a full review once the book is out!
