Hello, TechRaptor readers! Here’s what you may have missed in the world of tabletop wargaming over the last week.

This week’s pre-orders from Games Workshop are decidedly skirmish themed. Just announced today is the next addition to Necromunda: Underhive with House Orlock. The new House models come with 10 separate bodies, 20 heads with 10 unique designs, and enough weapons to blast your way to dominance in the underhive. To complement this new release, Games Workshop also has a new Gang War supplement, a new terrain bundle with Underhive Badzone Delta-7, and a new all-inclusive bundle containing the core Necromunda: Underhive game along with both Gang Wars supplements.


This week also brings us two new warbands for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire. The Chosen Axes and Spiteclaw’s Swarm are set to pillage the ruins of Shadespire and fight for dominance amongst the shattered remains of the city. All listed pre-orders have a street release date of February 17th.

Warcradle Studios released a trio of 3D render previews for two future Wild West Exodus posses. The Dark Nation posse, led by Wicasasni, will contain 5 miniatures total:

  • Khali
  • Camazotz
  • Wicasasni
  • Seke
  • Nizhoni
The other posse preview released is the Enlightened Galvanic Mysteries posse, led by Lady Augusta Byron. This hard-hitting group will also contain 5 miniatures:
  • Creation X
  • Creation V
  • Lady Augusta Byron
  • Creation XIII
  • Mantis
And not to be outdone, this week’s preview also contains a render for the Hex beast known as Vor Khet. Due to the sheer size of the miniature, it merits a separate release announcement and preview. All three previews are slated for a release later this year.
