The Sylvaneth are an interesting group, the more spirit-base element to the Wood Elves, both in touch with and fully part of nature herself. Next week sees the release of a brand new Battletome for them which, as normal these days, comes in Trim Your Hedges Standard Edition and the Tie A Yellow Ribbon 'Round The Old Oak Tree Limited Edition. Interestingly the character on the front cover has not been released from it's boxed game for this release, but you do get the new Endless Spells: Sylvaneth new Sylvaneth terrain with the Awakened Wyldwood, some Sylvaneth Dice and the requisite Warscroll Cards.
These aren't the only Elves out next week because Blood Bowl gets it's Wood Elf team, the Athelorn Avengers - stunning miniatures in dynamic poses. With all new teams there are also Wood Elf Dice, and a rather ordinary looking Wood Elf Pitch to play on. Bit of a shame that! Next week is also a Spike! week, with Issue 6 showing off the Athelorn Avengers, plus the Wood Elf Team Card Pack and a set of Blood Bowl Match Inducements cards.
Meanwhile, in The Shire, the Prime Minister is disgracing himself outside McDonalds - that's a joke for Australians - but really we're talking about Middle-Earth where The Shire is under attack in the new Scouring of The Shire expansion book. We also see the return of some classic minis, with Bilbo Baggins, Bandobras Took (on Foot & Mounted), Golfimbul (on Foot & Mounted), three different Gandalf the Grey (on Foot, Mounted and on Cart) and the Ruffians set. Not a release that's going to set the world on fire, that's for sure!
Do you like your Adpetus Titanicus? Well there's a new Titan hovering around - Acastus Knight Porphyrion be thy name and the Acastus Knight Command Terminal Pack... which you'll need to use it. There's also a tonne of other neat Adeptus Titanicus releases too; you can command legendary Titans with either the Traitor Titans of Legend or Loyalist Titans of Legend Command Terminals and two sets of dice - Loyalist and Traitor. There's also Loyalist Legio Stratagem Cards and Traitor Legio Stratagem Cards.
Warhammer 40K has some re-releases with the Eldar Spiritseer now available separately and two new Star Collecting sets; Start Collecting! Primaris Space Wolves and Start Collecting! Thousand Sons.
Books! There's usually a book or three - well next week there's a few more with Vaults of Terra Book 2: The Hollow Mountain, the Ravenor: The Omnibus, an anthology of 18 short Age of $igmar stories Gods & Mortals, The Horusian Wars Book 2: Incarnation and finally July's White Dwarf - oddly half way through the month, which is okay because if you get it through Australian subscription you'll get it in October anyway!
