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

Games Workshop released a teaser video for the second book in its most recent series, The Gathering Storm: Fracture of Biel-Tan. Continuing with their current trend, this book will also feature three new and stunning models as well. Yvraine, Emmisary of Ynnead, Visarch, Sword of Ynnead, and YnCarne, Avatar of Ynnead will be released in early February along with the book itself. Take a look at the video preview for your first look at what’s to come.

Warcradle Studios has set a release date for their first new models for Wild West Exodus. Marshal Bass Reeves and the Magenta Alpha are currently available for pre-order and have a release date set for March 25th. Both models will be case in resin, and the Magenta Alpha will come on a 40mm base with an impressive height of 50mm, making her stand out on the battlefield.

Privateer Press have announced the upcoming release of the newest Retribution of Scyrah Colossal, the Hyperion. The plastic kit will allow players to build either the Hyperion of Helios Colossal and will clock in at $109.99 USD. The miniature has a set release date of January 25th, so check your FLGS for arrival dates and final pricing.

Steamforged Games have announced the release of two new players for Guild Ball. The Masons will get Granite, an enforcer with plenty of mobility on the pitch and a force multiplier for her team. Pintpot is joining the Brewers, bringing unbridled aggression and a penchant for violence to his team. Both models are available for pre-order from the Guild Ball store with an anticipated release date of February 3rd.

And finally, Corvus Belli have released an update for the ITS Season 8 document, bringing the version count up to 1.4. The new version adds in TAG pilots as specialists (including Remote Presence TAGs), along with the required profiles for the pilots. The new document also includes some changes to Limited Insertion missions, specifically the disallowing of Command Tokens for Strategic Use.

Edit: Originally, we had published that the Hyperion kit would be metal and resin. We have corrected the article to reflect the fact that it is a plastic kit.
