Forge World Castellum Stronghold & Iron Hands Squad





From Forge World:

When the situation calls for a prolonged deployment, Space Marines can rapidly construct modular fortified structures, known as Castellum Strongholds, to use as forward operating bases on a planet’s surface.

Designed by Blake Spence, the Realm of Battle Space Marine Castellum Stronghold is a 24" x 24" (609 mm x 609 mm) tile which can fit the Citadel Realm of Battle board. The model features areas that can accommodate Tarantula Sentry turrets, and its design allows several boards to be put together, expanding the size of the base. The Castellum Stronghold will be available as a pre-release at Games Day UK in limited quantities.

The Castellum Stronghold comes in at a very reasonable £ 90 or $ 145.






From Forge World:
Since the dark times of the Horus Heresy, in honour of their Primarch Ferrus Manus, the Iron Hands ritually replace their right hands with a mechanical augmentation; to them flesh has become symbolic of weakness and weakness is something that they will not tolerate.

Designed by Israel Gonzalez, the Iron Hands Legion Squad is a five man multi-part kit fitted out in Mk III Iron Armour that features many details such as cybernetic limbs, a nuncio-vox and an auspex. This kit will be available as a pre-release at Games Day UK in limited quantities.



These models are AMAZING.  They cost £32 or $51 a set.   


Can Forge World please stop making me want to play more armies?

Passing the Baton



Loken here.  As Nykona mentioned two days ago, I have turned this blog over to him.  While I may write an article here or there, this blog is now his, and I am sure you won't see much of a difference (It will probably be better!).

Forge World New Releases - Kakophoni and Ashen Circle

Updated Release Schedule - Someone is wrong!




Seems like the rumor mill is getting it wrong more and more all the time. 40K Radio posted a release schedule on their Facebook page and not so subtlety hinted others have been getting it wrong.

From 40K Radio:


Oct: Dark Elves
Nov: Holiday Releases(boxed army type stuff)
Dec: Hobbit
Jan: Tyranids
Feb: Dwarfs
March: IG


40K Radio specifically says that this has been the release schedule all the time and that NOTHING has been "pushed back" as claimed by other blogs.

And everything I have heard corroborates this.  Dark Elves are next and Tyranids are January.


More on this later.

Loken.

Ferrus Manus Released by Forgeworld (Video)




WOW!  Talk about making Ferrus Manus cool.  Simon Egan totally nailed the sculpt (as he always does) and this is the perfect compliment to the Fulgrim model (and the bases fit together of course).

The Power Gamer Gets Gamed





My newphew posted this to my Facebook wall.  I have to say it made me laugh out loud as I HATE powergamers.  I hate the whole tournament scene in general, which is why I love Apocalypse.  So when a power gamer gets snaked, I love it.

Erebus & Kor Phaeron Pics and Video!




Forge World has released photos and a great video with the sculptor who designed both Erebus and Kor Phaeron.  Even though I am a loyalist, and I hate Chaos, I have to say, these models are AMAZING.

Warzone: Damnos - Ultramarines Review



So are the Ultramarines getting all the cool toys?   Eyjio, one of the Apocalypse40K regulars thinks so.  He certainly thinks the new Warzone: Damnos is skewed towards Ultramarines.  And what of the Necrons?  Do they get good new rules and formations?

Online Discounters - Pro vs. Con



My last article on Dicebucket was the catalyst for a good discussion on online discounting.  (and some moronic trolls but we sent them back under the bridge).  So I thought I would take some time to look at arguments for and against online discounters.
