Games Workshop has released a trio of new terrain kits for Warhammer 40,000. The Galvanic Magnavent, Ferratonic Furnace, and Alchomite Stack are currently available for pre-order with a release date of April 15th. The company has also released a new run of the out of print Chaos Dwarves team for Blood Bowl for $104 USD with an expected delivery time of up to 35 days. As the old-school Blood Bowl team is considered Made To Order, they will only be available for one week. The company has also finalized a pre-order date for the highly anticipated release of the Kharadron Overlords. The first wave of releases will hit on Saturday, April 15th and should be in stores the following Saturday.

Raging Heroes has started adding miniatures from their second Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter campaign to their general webstore. Currently, the various heroine miniatures from the fantasy and sci-fi lines are available, with the troops and monsters in the pipeline. The company also released short bios for the available heroines, helping flesh out the characters and the worlds they inhabit. Raging Heroes has also released a pair of short teaser videos showing off the available heroines and mascots.

 

Black Scorpion Miniatures’ Kickstarter campaign for Tombstone released last week and is moving along quite well. Tombstone is a Wild West themed skirmish wargame set in the Old American West. The game will launch with five factions consisting of Lawmen, Outlaws, Mexicans, 7th Cavalry, and the Undead. Tombstone will feature original resin miniatures, a fleshed-out campaign system, and a well-developed backstory including a comic book to bring the world to life. At the time of this writing, Tombstone has raised over $77,000 USD with 23 days left in the campaign.

And finally, Mantic Games has made three of the most iconic miniatures from The Walking Dead: All Out War available on their webstore. Mantic Games fans will be able to purchase Negan, Michonne, and Abraham from the webstore with Mantic Points rather than actual currency. The three models will cost 15 Mantic Points. The company has also made the Walker version of Ronnie, the Initiative badge and unique Bag of Guns markers available for 10 Mantic Points each.
