So got an e-mail from Warlord Games today and there at the end was news about these marvellous little pieces of scenery.
Perhaps your Squad has pulled furniture from a damaged building, forming a make-shift barricade or you want to add some interior detail to you abandoned houses, the new Battlfield scatter terrain set gives you an awful lot of new casts to work with, including damaged walls, furniture and the option to build the formiddable ‘rosa sessel’ makeshift barricade known to be used to great effect in many scenarios here at Warlord HQ.
In the box you get hard plastic walls, furniture, a checkpoint, oh and a guard dog!
I think what caught my eye was the sofa and armchair. I could see them on my Operation Sealion battles where the Home Guard have quickly pulled out stuff from their homes and built a barricade.
I really like the models and though I think it’s a little pricey at £49.99 they look like they will really add to my (future) games of Bolt Action.
I have over the last few months been revising and editing a fair few pages of my blog after changing hosts, as well as converting the gallery and workbench pages to the blog. I have taken content from the old site and moved it to the new site.
Having left the old site alone for a few months, I have now gone in and updated all (well the most of) the menu links so that they point to the new site.
The old site will no longer be updated, but I will keep it on the web so that old links to it still work.
Well on Sunday over on the Warhammer Community site, there has been the official preview of the new Aeronautia Imperialis boxed set, Skies of Fire.
You’ll get absolutely everything you need to fly your first sorties, including a set of five aircraft for each side, a game mat and rulebook, dice, reference sheets, tokens and a transfer sheet. The T’au force includes three Barracudas and two Tiger Sharks, each with a wide array of weapon options. The Imperium’s forces consist of two Valkyrie Assault Carriers, which can alternatively be built as Vendettas, plus three Lightning Strike Fighters, one of which can be built as a Lightning Fighter.
After hearing that it had gone direct only and was to be superseded by a new boxed set featuring the Tau, I decided I had better buy it now before it was gone.
It’s not that I don’t like the new boxed set, much more that I prefer the Imperial and Ork models in the Wings of Vengeance boxed set. So much so (and quite unlike me) I have already started putting the models together…
These are lovely models, so I was interested to see what we would get in the Tau boxed set. Obviously there would be Tau, but I was intrigued who their opponents would be. Not looking at the rumours I did wonder if it would be a Xenos race, so was pleasantly surprised to see that it was the Imperial Navy.
I wasn’t anticipating that we would see the Valkyrie.
They look great.
I don’t think I will buy the boxed set, but I do think I might get a box of the Valkyrie Assault Carriers. As I said on Twitter I do wonder if we will ever see tanks and infantry in this scale for Adeptus Titanicus? Well this Valkyrie does show what is possible.
I am not a great fan of the Lightning Strike Fighters so happy to let them pass. As for the Tau, well they look like nice models, but not for me.
So a 40K version of Risk has been announced and will be available in the autumn.
Battle with your favorite factions for control of the planet Vigilus in the Battle of the War of the Beasts. Take control of your faction and attempt to vanquish your foes across the unique planet map that has been customized for Warhammer fans. In this Risk game, custom sculpted units will allow you to control the key locations in your bid to rule the planet!
I can not believe that there is a Warhammer 40K version of Monopoly…. The whole reason I got into Warhammer in the first place was how disappointed I was with games like Monopoly!
With this product though, I am not just a little bit curious, I am quite interested.
The classic game of Risk can get rather stale rather quickly, but when mission cards are introduced then the game becomes very different.
One of my favourite games is Risk: Europe which is an advanced version of Risk.
Control Europe in the Risk Europe game, an exciting game of medieval conquest. The game challenges players to step into the role of a medieval king and rule feudal Europe by building castles, taxing subjects, expanding territories, and engaging in battle.
While there’s some similarities to other versions of Risk, the turns are quite different.
From what I can see of the design of Risk: Warhammer 40,000 looks to be more than classic Risk, but not quite as indepth as the Europe version.
I like the little plastic pieces and the fact that the game has alien races as well as Space Marines.
It certainly looks like a possible purchase for me, though I do wonder if it will be available in the UK?
This Dark Angels Land Raider Redeemer was in the displays at Warhammer World.
The Land Raider Redeemer is a variant of the Land Raider Crusader, which itself is a variant of the standard Land Raider used by the many Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes to provide short-range, anti-infantry assault support during urban offensives.
The Land Raider Redeemer replaces the Land Raider Crusader’s weapons with the dreaded sponson-mounted Flamestorm Cannons. These massive flame-based weapons send burning sheets of promethium into the thick of the foe, purging even well-defended bunker complexes in solar seconds. This enables the Redeemer to be highly effective against infantry during grueling and dangerous urban combat.
