Just a small week for pre-orders as we go into Christmas. with some reinforcements for Blood Bowl. When Blood Bowl first launched there was some excitement that we might get a new Chaos Dwarf team (and maybe we will) but this week sees the return of the old/"classic" Chaos Dwarf Team & the Bull Centaur as Made To Order. Chaos Dwarves have a real cult following (with a number of third-party companies making great versions of them), so it will be interesting to see how this goes and if it leads to a plastic boxed set down the line. With only those in the miniature releases, we have a new hardcover - The Court of the Blind King - with not only an excellent cover but also an insight into the Idoneth Deepkin. Maybe we'll see exactly how much like the Dark Eldar they are in personality since their mini range is so similar. It's also time for the "gift-filled" White Dwarf December 2019. It's a real pity it's not a free miniature, but seems like GW doesn't do that anymore.
The day has come - the brand new Chaos Warriors and expanded Slaves To Darkness are here. In an unusual move, Games Workshop have put the new Chaos Warriors, Chaos Knights and a new General in a new Start Collecting! Slaves to Darkness set. These are mono-pose miniatures, so it makes a bit more sense, but also begs the question; were these meant to be an adversary in a different collection? To Go with the new minis, there's the brand new Slaves To Darkness Battletome which comes in Dark & Spiky Limited Edition and of course Bow Before Me! Standard Edition. As with all new Age of $igmar army releases, we also get the new Endless Spells set and the Warscroll Cards - no dice though #sadface! Part of the new Battletome is to expand the forces of the Slaves To Darkness. which now include the forces from the Warcry game, so we get sets of Cypher Lords, Corvus Cabal, The Unmade, Iron Golem, The Splintered Fang, and Untamed Beasts, but with double the miniatures, but not double the price! Speaking of Warcry, two of the scenery sets from that, the Azyrite Ruined Chapel and the Azyrite Shattered Plaza, are now available separately. In yet more related Warcry news, the Warcry: Tome of Champions is on it's way with with rules for all the other factions in Age of $igmar - even the Seraphon get a mention!
The big boyz of the Ork fleet arrive with the new Aeronautica Imperialis Grot Bommers. These minis don't seem to be getting much love, but there's something Miyazaki about them, so we could be tempted...
Blood Bowl steams along, this time with the new Fire Mountain Gut Busters, the Ogre Team Card Pack, Ogre Team Dice, the Blood Bowl Ogre Team Pitch & Dugouts mat set, Spike! Journal Issue 8, and The 2019 Blood Bowl Almanac which compiles Spike! Journal, issues 4-7 plus an updated FAQ and more.
The Blackstone Fortress Annual 2019 is out next week with new content and also the articles from White Dwarf from December 2018 to December 2019. Interestingly it's softcover!
Middle-Earth has such a cult following, and the recent book releases continue with War in Rohan for Lord of the Rings. Adding new terrain to the system, we get the Rohan House and Rohan Watchtower and Palisades which can be combined to build a walled town, plus there's new Isengard Dice Set. The usual round of re-release miniatures get a run too, with a particularly nice set of Saruman the White & Gríma. The rest have been released a few times before, so I won't bore you with their relisting.
There is a cool book release next week though - the Sabbat Worlds Crusade by Dan Abnett. This is a background book that tells the story of this campaign, but there's also some extra stuff to go along with it, including a Sabbat Worlds Crusade Map in the form of a rolled faux-leather scroll, The Sabbat Worlds Crusade Pin Badges and The Sabbat Worlds Crusade Coaster Set. All Sabbat, all the time!
In other books, Spear of The Emperor, originally a limited edition hard cover with decals and extra stuff is finally out in paperback!
It's been a while since the Project: War Hounds section of the site got a solid update - but that doesn't mean things have been static. You may have seen posts on the Facebook and sometimes the Blog page, but the Project: War Hounds section is for a more lengthy exploration of the Legion that we are building from multiple sources while at the same time actually building a cohesive look and feel. It all takes time, and that is sometimes lacking in our busy world! Suffice to say, there has been a lot of slow force building (as you saw the other day) and a number of units are nearing completion. In honour of that, head on over to the War Hounds section of the site and you can see a slice of what we've been up to.
