Shadespire Release date!

Games Workshop have revealed that their new competitive miniatures game Shadespire is up for preorder on the 14th October and out the following weekend on the 21st October!

On that day you will be able to get hold of the Shadespire Boxed game (£40) containing the Stormcast and Khorne forces, the baords and all the cards you need to get started playing!

These will be followed by yet more pre order goodies on the 28th (released the 4th of November) – two brand new expansion boxes for the game, one for the The Sepulchral Guard and the other for Ironskull’s Boyz. Each expansion contains the miniatures needed to play that faction, unique cards for them and also cards that can be used by any force in the game!

 

Shadespire looks to be an interesting blend of a miniatures game and a card game, and by all accounts from those that have played it the game is excellent!

We will have our review and thoughts on this brand new game when it is released on the 21st!

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!

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!
