Ladies and Gentlemen. Smaug!!



The first images of Smaug are now appearing and wow he is big. Below his right hand is Bilbo for size comparison.

Something that is quite interesting is the base. Looks like a new huge oval sized base?!


Blood Angels Wargear

blood talons are Sx2 AP2 with melee, shred, and specialist weapon
magna grapples give you move through cover, and you can re-roll failed charges when assaulting a vehicle.

Winter Sucks


I saw this and thought it was quite poetic. Had to share it as we can all relate.

via Ratius on Dakka
It gets dark so early theres no natural light left to paint in. 
Its too cold outside to spray coat models. 
Its hard to paint with icey cold fingers. 
No ones up for a game unless your house is nicely toasty (although the beer fridge must still be cold). 
To get good photos you have to use lamps etc, which never work as well. 
In really bad weather, shipping gets delayed and its impossible to make it to the flgs. 
Every army gets grumpy except the Space Wolves. 

Stupid winter months..... 

Blood Angel Powers


Via Anonymous Source

The primaris power for the new Blood Angels is called Quickening. Its a warp charge 1 blessing that effects either the psyker or another character within 12". The target gains fleet, d3 initiative and attacks. Its basicly what warp speed used to be In 6th.

Wings of Sanguinous is also there unchanged.

New White Dwarf Cover! 6/12/14

Wow. This looks good. Proof about Smaug!




New Small Format Codexes on GW Site



Out of know where GW are now producing small format codexes for £5 cheaper than the original sized ones.

The only difference is the size. So i dont see much use in buying a codex if you have one already but for newer customers i guess their good.

The hobbit Rumours




Please remember that these are rumors.

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
GW will re-release the War of the Ring Game with a Battle of Five Armies Expansion for the Hobbit Miniatures. GW want to use the Ring War Ruleset for getting over to the end of the Licence in 2018. A remake of the skimisher system  will not happening after the Lost of the Hobbit licence in 2016.


The "how to painting Citadel Miniatures" Book bears the Lotr Logo, it's not only because the Tutorials in the Guide feature no Hobbit models. GWs Hobbit licence runs only until Early 2016, the other runs until end of 2018. When GW loses the Hobbit licence, they must release a new Rulebook with only Lotr content and the Logo of it.
Please remember that these are rumors.

Smaug!!




via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Lots of releases next week including some surprises. There are lots of hobbit releases, including Smaug. Smaug is extremely huge will be listed for expert modelers only. Of course he is going to cost you almost 500 dollars US, but this is a huge model standing over lots of gold and two columns with Bilbo hiding beneath.

Death Company and Blood Angels Codex and releases




Today it was reported that the death company box has disappeared From the GW site. Probably to be re-boxed and getting the new 32mm.

Also the codex has disappeared from site pretty much confirming the Blood Angel release.

Via source:

Blood angels get their codex next week. The cover is an assault marine wielding a plasma pistol and and chainsword, overall a nice looking cover.

Blood Angels also get new datacards and dice, but more importantly blood angels get a new tactical squad with lots of options. Shoulder pads, helmets and blood angel symbols are everywhere. It looks like a full box of bits. Heavy Flamer is also in the box.

Last but least there is a new Sanguinary Priest with with a extra machinery on the backpack, a blood chalice, and a nice looking chainsword

Heroes of Santus Reach





Via uk_crow on Dakka:

Just a heads up for those without the warhammer app 

Make sure you’re subscribed to the Games Workshop Digital Editions newsletter before this Friday and we’ll send you a free Warhammer 40,000 Supplement – Heroes of Sanctus Reach. 
The all-new supplement features the ferocious Ragnar Blackmane and his Space Wolves as they battle against the Freebooter Kaptin Badrukk and his mob of unruly Orks. Inside you'll find a new mission, new datasheets and new background set during the brutal war for Sanctus Reach.



Fair play to GW, although they aren't perfect they do seem to be heading in a good direction of late. I would recommend anyone to get the app as the amount of free excerpts and stuff is worthwhile.

Endtimes: Khaine spoilers!!




via the Black Library
THE STORY
The End Times are coming. With Naggaroth besieged by the hordes of Chaos, the Witch King Malekith makes the decision to abandon the Land of Chill and make one final attempt to seize the throne of Ulthuan. As the druchii march upon the soil of their ancestral home once again, long-laid plans come to fruition and treachery blooms, bringing Malekith closer than ever to his goal. All that stands in the Witch King’s way is the Regent of Ulthuan, Prince Tyrion, and the darkness within Malekith’s own soul, the call of the Curse of Khaine.





OK, one final Alert, Spoilers below

via a reader on Faeit 212

Just finished reading the Curse of Khaine and HOLY CRAP! It has a bigger impact on the WFB background than Nagash and Glottkin combined.

Spoilers…
·         Dark elves have permanently abandoned Naggaroth to Chaos
·         Malekith is the true phoenix king and was meant to be the chosen of Asurayn all along
·         Teclis has destroyed  the Vortex and the remaining 7 winds of magic (Nagash has taken Death) are now embodied in various heroes in "many races". Malekith embodies Shadow and his wife, the Everqueen, life
·         As a result of its destruction Ulthuan is gone, sunken below the waves with some of the elves escaping via the world root.
·         Tyrion is dead as is Korhil, Malus and half a dozen other named characters including Orion. Morathi's fate is unclear though she fought in the final battle on the isle of the dead and did not remain in Naggaroth
·         Caradryan speaks!  
·         Athel Loren is the only Elven kingdom left and the 3 types of elves have returned to a single race

Leviathan SoftBack



The Shield of Baal Leviathan will see a softcover release before the end of the year. The campaign book was not expected to see out so fast and with only a certain number printed GW will now bring out the new softback version before the end of the year.

Latest Blood Angel Rumours


Remember at the moment these are rumours so take with salt

via an anonymous reader on Faeit 212:
• The Blood Angels Codex briefly showed up on the Games Workshop mobile website. Cover featured what looked like a Sanguinary Guard surrounded by fire.

via Lords of War Gaming on Facebook:
• Blood Angels Codex will be called Adeptus Astartes: Blood Angels. All future Codexes will use this same naming scheme.

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212:
• Blood Angels are indeed pegged for a mid-November release but there will be little or even no model releases at all.


via various sources:
• New Mephiston in plastic. Huge, standing almost as tall as a terminator. Sword low across front in right arm. Left extented over the top with hand spread...individual fingers. Looks like he's lunging forward sweeping the blade in an uppercut. Cape blown about behind him. Model has skull and blood drop iconography all over. Aegis extends up like the cowl of the old figure but is much more recognisable as a psychic hood. Face is incredibly detailed. Fangs are visible.
• New Tycho in plastic. Death Company iconography with nipple armour. Carries a chainsword and signature combi-melta.
• New Corbulo in plastic wearing Sanguinary armour. Holding the Blood Chalice in two hands over his head as if in offering.
• New Blood Angels Terminators. Kit makes Terminators, Captain in Terminator Armour, Librarian in Terminator Armour, or new unit. Stormbolters are standard and not wrist mounted. Kit includes Power Axes, Power Fists, Power Sword, Force Sword, Heavy Flamer, Assault Cannon, new 2-handed Heavy Cannon, Banner. Also includes Librarian options (torso/tabard/shoulders/weapon), Captain options (combi-weapons), and a ton of bits.

My hopes and thoughts for 7th edition Necrons

Many people have necrons for an early 2015 release. With their last codex being released 3 years ago we probably wont see much change.



Here are my thoughts and hopes on what will change and be released:

Unit changes:
.Annihilation barges will more than likely go up in points. At the moment it sits at 90 but i can see it hitting around 120/130, but not changing much other wise.
.Nightscythes will definitly go up like 30ish points and will more than likely see the invasion beams changed.
.flayed ones need something to make them viable. I would like to see maybe a change in movement somehow and hopefully something to help them in combat. Maybe a new chart or weapon of somesort.
.Destroyers in my opinion need another wound, apart from that i think their good and their point cost is reasonable.
.Hopefully C'Tan drop in point or get better and stay same as their really cool.



Model changes:
.I think we will get new Destroyers with heavy and lord options. About £30 for 3 with 3 heavy gauss cannons, and enough bits for the lord that we can use spares for normal overlords and lords like weapons and that we dont have bits for.
.A C'Tan model would be one of my top wants for new models. A basic body that we can customize with loads of bits that correspond with the book powers. As well as options to make the nightbringer, deciever, void-dragon and others as well as a transcendant. Would like to see this about riptide size maybe a bit smaller and have and extention to make the transcendant riptide size or bigger. Probably priced around £30-40.
.royal court kit would be awesome!! An ovedlord with 5 other guys. A basic body build with enough specific bits to make either 5 lords or 5 crypteks or a mix. To have actual model versions of each harbinger would be awesome. Even if we get a set number of each at least getting plastic lords and crypteks would be cool.



Codex Changes:
.Relics will hopefully be cool and useful.  A funk warscythe or staff weapon would be cool and a special orb or reanimation buff relic would be awesome too.
.Im expecting to see a change with Reanimation Protocols maybe something like units dont get it if they were instant killed.
Maybe a bit more background on dynasties.

Stuff i expect or would like see. Leave yours in the comments.

Blood Angel Release!

Blood angels will get their first release after the shield of baal set




Via Anonymous source:


Week 1: New packaged kits. Tactical marines, Sanguinary guard, Baal Predator and death company.  One more new kit either terminators or new kit.


Week 2: Terminators (containing models similar to terminators in space hulk. New weapon option aswell)/ New unit (jump pack unit?)


Week 3: Codex. Sanguinor will be LOW choice

Mephiston will be similar to the way he is now except he will be a level 4.

Sanguinary guard will no longer be unlockable as troops but death company rule from astorath will remain.

Red thirst will be more than just a roll at beginning of fame. D3 table test every game turn.
