First up is Corvus Belli’s recent preview of the Onyx Contact Force army pack for Infinity. The army pack will contain a fully ITS legal 300 point army allowing players to either start a new sectorial army right out of the box or provide Combined Army players with a strong boost to their already existing force. The newest sectorial army information is available in the latest Human Sphere expansion, and will be available next month for 89.95 EUR from the Corvus Belli website.

Battlefront Miniatures recently released a preview of the upcoming West German forces for their alternate-history WWIII wargame Team Yankee. Leopard will provide additional background on the West German army, rules on building a West German army for the game, scenarios, and a painting guide. The company also released a YouTube video showing off the upcoming plastics for the army. The game expansion is set to be released in July of this year.

Privateer Press provided some additional information on the upcoming Mk III version of Warmachine and Hordes. The previews go over both a reworking of the ‘Jack Marshal rules and changes coming to the Protectorate of Menoth. ‘Jack Marshals will be limited to controlling a single warjack, and will get some additional bonuses to choose from while controlling one. The preview covering Menoth covers the changes coming to the army born out of playtesting for the new edition and shows a few sample cards for warjacks and infantry units. The newest version is Warmachine and Hordes will be available in June of this year.

Games Workshop released Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower over the weekend. The game is a reimaging of the classic Warhammer Quest game set in the Mortal Realms pitting a handful of heroes against one of the nine Gaunt Summoners of Tzeentch in a reality-bending maze of horrors and deciet. The company also released warscrolls for every model in the board game for use in Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. The warscrolls are available for download here.
