The Rise and Fall of Anvalor Available Now from WizKids

April 13, 2019

WizKids is thrilled to announce that The Rise & Fall of Anvalor, its all new co-opetition game is now available North American Game Stores!

Taking place in the iconic Warhammer: Age of Sigmar setting, The Rise & Fall of Anvalor has one to four players, each representing one of six factions, building a stronghold on The Great Parch. Each faction has ulterior motives, however; they seek to take Anvalor under their control to strengthen their influence in all the Mortal Realms.

Players will purchase City Buildings while enemies slowly encroach upon them. When enough enemies have gathered, players must work together to fight them off by rolling dice. Successfully defeated enemies will grant influence to the player who eliminated them, and the player with the most influence at the end of the game is the champion! With over 155,000 unique scenario combinations, The Rise & Fall of Anvalor will offer hours of challenging and variable gameplay.

The Rise & Fall of Anvalor is available now

WizKids Announces Warhammer 40,000: Relic Board Game

Feb 19, 2019

WizKids is releasing Warhammer 40,000: Relic, a game for 2-4 players set in the WH40K universe in June 2019!

In Relic, two to four players each assume the role of a powerful individual from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and bravely venture forth to shield the Antian Sector from certain doom. By completing missions and claiming victory over enemies, characters gain rewards and experience, including mighty artefacts called Relics, furthering their chance at defeating whatever evil lies beyond the Warp rift.

Based on the classic Talisman system, each turn, a player rolls a single six-sided die before moving their playing piece that number of spaces around the board. That player then draws a card or cards to see what they’ve encountered, pitting their heroic persona against foul enemies, dangerous locations, and fantastic strangers. And all the while, these intrepid heroes rise in power, as they work their way toward the ultimate goal at the center of the board, which could be anything from confronting Kairos Fateweaver, the two-headed Oracle of Tzeentch, to fighting for control over the Lost Flagship of St. Antias.

The new WizKids edition features improved and expanded highly-detailed busts of the ten available player characters, as well as upgraded punchboard player and scenario cards.

Will you save humanity or fall to the powers of Chaos?

Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 Announced

Aug 14, 2018

Steve Jackson Games and Games Workshop announce the biggest, back-stabbiest, most loot-filled heavy-weapons bonanza of the year: Munchkin Warhammer 40,000, coming in 2019 to a game store near you!

Since the original Munchkin card game hit the market in 2001, the Munchkin brand has sold over 9 million games and accessories worldwide. Warhammer 40,000, now in its eighth edition, is one of the longest-lasting classic games of miniatures combat. Now these two popular games are merging into a storm of carnage and weirdness guaranteed to satisfy armies of gamers.

As with all Munchkin games, Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 will combine easily with the rest of the extensive Munchkin line, including Munchkin Zombies, Star Munchkin, and Munchkin itself.

Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 is illustrated by principal Munchkin artist (and extreme Warhammer fanboy) John Kovalic, and designed by Munchkin Line Editor Andrew Hackard, in consultation with Games Workshop.

“I have never seen a game store without a Warhammer 40,000 section,” said Hackard. “It’s a pleasure to get to play around in a setting that has such a rich history and so many dedicated fans around the world!”

Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 will launch in 2019 in premiere Deluxe format ($29.95), followed by two 112-card expansions ($19.95) later the same year. That’s almost 400 cards of explosive Munchkin Warhammer fun!

Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator available to preorder for Horus Heresy

November 12th, 2016

Games Workshop has a new vehicle available for your Horus Heresy army; the Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator! Preorder now, shipping next week.

Uniquely crafted to the needs of the Magos leading the expeditionary force, Macrocarid Explorators first saw use as frontline combat and mobile command vehicles in the early days of the Great Crusade. Heavily armoured and equipped with the Mechanicum’s signature technologies and weapons, they are now pressed into service on both sides of the cataclysmic battles of The Horus Heresy.

Macrocarid Explorators can transport Magos’ or their units of deadly automata across the battlefield, cutting through any opponent foolish enough to come close with powerful weapons enhanced by augury scanners. Their heavy armour makes them as durable as the Legiones Astartes Land Raider, with the addition of extensive self-repair systems.

The Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator includes optional weapons for the vehicle’s sponsons and hull mounting points. A pair of lascannon or two irradiation engines may be fitted to its sponson mounts, whilst a mauler bolt-cannon and a graviton imploder are available as hull mounted weapons.

Horus Heresy’s Nathaniel Garro available

December 3rd, 2015

Forge World continues to release staggeringly beautiful Character minis for the 28mm Horus Heresy 30K universe. This time it’s Nathaniel Garro, Hand of the Sigillite.

The foremost of the Knights-Errant, Nathaniel Garro was once a Battle-Captain of the Legiones Astartes Death Guard. Though he served his Primarch with honour and dedication, he was condemned as unworthy and, along with countless thousands of Legionaries who could not be counted on to tread the path of the Traitor, was betrayed at Isstvan III.

Surviving to bring word of the treachery to Terra, Garro renounced his oaths to the Death Guard and pledged his life and loyalty to Malcador the Sigillite, swearing to undertake any mission, no matter how perilous, in the ultimate defence of humanity.

Nathaniel Garro, Hand of the Sigillite, is part of the Horus Heresy Character Series. Armed with a paragon bolter and Libertas, his masterfully wrought broadsword, Garro goes to war clad in ornate power armour bearing the symbols of the Sigillite and protected by technologies and artefacts both wondrous and guileful.

This is a multi-part resin kit and is presented in a stylish Horus Heresy Character Series box. It includes a 32mm gaming base and a 50mm scenic base that depicts the dismembered remains of a Word Bearers Legion Gal Vorbak.

Archaon Everchosen available from Games Workshop

December 2nd, 2015

Games Workshop has released their massive Archaon Everchosen for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar 28mm fantasy miniatures.

Spoken of in fearful whispers by warlords and kings, Archaon is the shadow of Chaos falling upon the Mortal Realms. Greatest of the Dark Gods’ champions, the Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse, he is the Everchosen – the doom of all. Uniting the armies of Chaos with his fist of iron, wielding the legendary daemon sword the Slayer of Kings and mounted upon the terrifying, three-headed beast Dorghar, he rides out to meet the forces of Order that seek to loosen the grip of Chaos. Archaon – the Three-Eyed King, the World Razor, the Thirsting Predator – will see to it that Sigmar’s heroes fail in their quest, and that the united hosts of Chaos will unmake the Mortal Realms in their terrible, howling glory.

This kit contains all the components necessary to make one absolutely staggering, enormous, intimidating Archaon, the Everchosen. Covered in the gifts of the Dark Gods, he bears the Armour of Morkar, featuring numerous Chaos markings, inscribed with runes of warding and malice. His shield displays the symbols of the Dark Gods, and he clutches the Slayer of Kings. His vast winged mount, Dorghar, has undergone countless horrific mutations as he consumed souls from the carcasses of Archaon’s bested foes – huge wings, the faces of unfortunate Stormcast Eternals whose souls he has consumed embedded within his skin, three daemonic heads and twin tails.

Eighty-five components in total are included, with a gigantic Citadel 160mm Round base.
