Blood Bowl has been getting a bit of a pump recently, and this week we have the preview of the new Vampire Blood Bowl Team, The Drakfang Thirsters. Less the grand Vampire House look and more your Victorian-era romantic style vampire, there's more puffy shirt here than at a pirate convention! With the release of the vamps, there are of course the Blood Bowl Vampire Team Card Pack and Team Dice Set, plus the Vampire Team – Double-sided Pitch and Dugouts Set and an issue of Spike! Journal Issue 16 with all the lore a rules to field these Anne Rice refugees.
It must be a week for it, because another outlier in the Games Workshop stable, The Lord of the Rings has a new two-player game, The Fellowship of the Ring™ – Battle in Balin's Tomb. This comes with 22 of the classic plastic minis, so a nice gift for a LoTR fan out there.
Made To Order is back and this time with Warhammer 40K terrain. These much-loved and much-missed sets are available for a limited time only, so jump on them if you feel the need. This wave sees the re-release of the Aegis Defence Line - Classic, Wall of Martyrs: Imperial Defence Line, the Wall of Martyrs: Imperial Defence Emplacement, the Wall of Martyrs: Imperial Bunker, the Imperial Bastion and the Skyshield Landing Pad. There's also two basing sets, the Warhammer 40,000 Hero Bases and the Sector Imperialis Large Base Detail Kit.
In books this week there's the Ciaphas Cain: For the Emperor which comes in glorious Special Edition. Now the cover reveals something we never knew - the name of the Emperor! It's right there in bold type... Sandy Mitchell! Not the name we'd thought, but I guess we can't pick our name.
