Fair warning, this week’s post is going to be a bit of a tease.

The PREVIEW (preview is in caps, because these minis are NOT FOR SALE YET) figures of the new Warhammer Fantasy Tomb Kings release have arrived.  If you’re not familiar with the older Tomb Kings or this re-release of them, they are Egyptian mummies, skeletons, and beasties.  The preview figures include Tomb Guard, the Khemrian Warsphinx/Necrosphinx, Necropolis Knights/Sepulchral Stalkers, and the new Tomb Kings Codex HC.

As I said at the beginning, these figures will not be available for sale until May 8th.  Until then, though, you can come get a look at them, as they are on display above the new game shelf.

Since we’re talking about Warhammer miniatures, I think it’s a good time to plug (in case you haven’t seen the posts on our Facebook) the mini painting night that we’ve been holding every Monday at 6:00.  Bring your paints, bring your minis, bring, uh, yourself and come hang at Pulp with other mini-minded folks.

Going along with the Legend of the Five Rings CCG box that we received last week, now we have the L5R RPG hardcover, Emerald Empire.  This is the fourth, and newest version, of the Emerald Empire book, which details life, social classes, geography, laws, martial arts schools, and clans of the Rokugan empire.  If you’ve never played or interacted with any of the L5R world, but love Japanese history, culture, and samurai, then this would be an ideal world for you to invest in.

A restock note:  Pulp also received a new shipment of 2011 Deck Builder’s Toolkits.  If you’re a Magic player, new or old, and haven’t picked one up, they are a quick, cheap, and easy way to nab 285 cards from the M11, Worldwake, Zendikar, and Rise of Eldrazi sets.  Each box contains 125 semi-random cards (which means there are about four or five pre-arranged sets and you  have the chance of getting one of them), four booster packs, 100 lands, and all the materials needed to learn basic Magic.  As the Worldwake, Zendikar, and Rise sets are no longer being printed, this kit is a great way to get some hard to find cards before they become hard and expensive to find.
