- A ton of paint
- Warmachine – Most battlegroups, rule books for most factions, and Ripjaw, Lancer, and Revenger.
Also, not a restock, but a quick blurb for the new issue of White Dwarf.
If you’re picking up any of the Warmachine, Warhammer, or any minis at all, you might want to take a look at the Rare Earth Magnets. These are designed to hold miniatures onto bases with extreme magnetic force. Seriously, these things attract each other through the two layers of plastic container they’re held in. I’d bore you with the dimensions, but there’s a lot. Basically, whatever size you think you’d need, they make.
¿Dónde está el Fluxx Español? En Pulp Fiction! Yes, in the long line of Fluxx editions, there is now a Spanish version. Not only is every card in Spanish, but the art and box are different. Might I recommend, if you are a Spanish teacher, whether in high school, college, or elementary, this would be a perfect game to use as a teaching aid in class. Simplemente decir.
A major release for this week, Dwarf King’s Hold drops onto shelves. Why is this such a big bad? Well, inside the box there is not only a fantastic two player dungeon crawl/battle game that has players taking control of undead and dwarf forces, but also 32 miniatures. The game builds on the six included scenarios, each leading up to an epic final battle. Also, the tiles included can be arranged as the player or scenario deems acceptable to form different maps for each style of play. Whether you’re looking for an exciting two player game, a bunch of gnarly minis, or both, you should aim your peepers at Dwarf King’s Hold.
You wants some attitude? How ’bout I play Dr. Know and give you some attitude? Shadowrun Attitude, in fact. Following in the treads of all the other futuristic criminal enterprising present in the Shadowrun universe, Attitude fleshes out the finer aspects of life. You’ll find a Scroll’s worth of information on music, sports, and other activities to keep you busy between Shadowruns. Don’t be a twinkie, buy it today.
Speaking of scrolls gives me a perfect transition into mentioning a semi-new Fresco expansion, Fresco, The Scrolls. Technically called Expansion Module 7, this new addition to the Fresco gaming series, adds new, uh, scrolls, bestowed upon you by the bishop. Each one allows players to tailor the fresco to their own desires, all while earning additional victory points.
Do ye wear a kilt, brotha? Ye should, men wear kilts. And te find out if yar a real man, brotha, ya need ta play Lords of Scotland. Aye, comin’ outta Z-Man games, this wee deck’a cards has ya fighting for the approval of the clans’a Scotland. If ya gain their loyalty, then yer on yar way ta being crowned king, brotha. Aye, it’s a game’a champions. And the short on cash.
Warhammer Fantasy RPG releases another invaluable resource this week with the Omens of War box set. Inside are contents that will benefit the GM and player, alike. New careers, fighting styles, rules for mounted combat, and much more sit side by side with deep explanations of the Empire, Knightly Orders, and vicious history of the Old World. On the game master side of things, information on the Ruinous Power Khorne, his minions, a peak into the Blood God’s strategy, and new severe injury rules are included. This information comes on top of all the numerous tokens, cards, standups, sourcebooks, and other pieces that are spilling out of this beautiful Warhammer Fantasy box set.
Returning to Pulp’s shelves is the QUERP Rulebook. No, that’s not another Spanish word, it’s an acronym for Quick Easy Role Playing. Intended for beginning roleplayers or veterans who are looking to run a simple, fast adventure, QUERP contains every detail players and game masters need to build a world, create characters, and play. Simple, quick, easy fantasy in a well made package.
I said they’d be mentioned up top, well here goes. Pathfinder has both Faiths of Purity and Rule of Fear coming out this week. What do these colorful Paizo booklets contain? Glad you asked. Faiths of Purity leans toward the kind, honest, generally good religions of the Pathfinder world, giving players the ability to create characters in flavor and mechanics. Rule of Fear, on the other hand, lives in the dark, shadowy nation of Ustalav by offering information on thirteen counties, gazetteers for seven cities, six conspiracies, and eleven adventure locations. Can you afford to be caught without them?
A Game of Thrones, not just a popular HBO program anymore. Haha, right? Yeah, George R.R. Martin’s been turning out books and other GoT product for a long, long time, the A Game of Thrones LCG being just one of example. As the LCG (living card game) is based around new expansion coming out periodically (in an effort to continually keep the game fresh) the Queen of Dragons expansion adds components based around House Targaryen. These include 165 cards, new strategies, tactics, and deckbuilding options to help creat two new decks, Fire and Blood and Hosts of the True-Queen.
