From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Games Workshop were teasing a massive reveal for the week-end. I think it shows my interest is more in their models than their games, as I was disappointed that the ‘reveal’ is a new edition for their flagship Warhammer 40,000 game.
8th edition only came out in 2017, so my first thought was ‘already?’ I bought the 8th edition boxed game, as I was in the UK at the time and eager to take advantage of the lower pricing relative to Australia. I have played zero games of that edition and still don’t regret the purchase.
Games Workshop managed to preview a few new models, along with a new website for Warhammer 40,000.
It looks like the new boxed set will be marines versus Necrons
The Necrons receive their first new warrior model in over a decade.
Meanwhile marine players get something they have not yet had: a pimaris marine with chainsword.
Yes, it’s perhaps emblematic of the support for space marines versus other factions that one celebrates getting a new model with a specific weapon type, while the other celebrates getting a new model.
