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

Corvus Belli released a teaser video for their upcoming manga Infinity Outrage earlier this week, showing off several snippets of artwork for the upcoming graphic novel. This will be the company’s first foray into fiction detailing the Human Sphere outside of rulebooks and expansions like Campaign: Paradiso or Human Sphere. Pre-orders will be open from March 13th to April 3rd, and will come with an exclusive Knauf mercenary miniature as well.



Warcradle Studios had several announcements over this last week. First off is the pre-order announcement for Colonel Albert Campbell, Countess Augusta Byron, and the Legendary version of Captain Rani Niume. All three miniatures are set to be released at the end of April, with Rani Niume currently planned to be released as a promotional miniature available at various gaming conventions throughout the year. The stat cards for these three are currently available from the Wild West Exodus website for play testing. It is important to note that these three cards will not be included in the current Last Roundup unit card pack currently available; the stat cards for these units will be included with the miniatures themselves and any updates will come in next year’s stat card release.

The company also released an updated beta version of their Into the Badlands league document for organized play. The document covers a basic league structure and schedule, gradually allowing players to grow their posses over the course of time starting with a simple faction box and ending with a full-sized $1000 posse. The league document is currently available from the Wild West Exodus website.

Privateer Press has announced the release of Forces of WARMACHINE: Cygnar Command. The faction book will cover the lore and background of the nation, its warcasters, and warjacks. The book will also contain a complete list of rules and profiles for its warcasters and warjacks, along with two new warcasters and a new character warjack, a painting guide, and two new theme forces as well. The book has a release date of March 8th, and will cost $34.99 USD for the softcover and $44.99 USD for the hardback.

Warlord Games has released several new model kits to help the Allies liberate Europe from fascist oppression in Bolt Action. The A34 Comet heavy tank is now available, along with a trio of conversion packs for US Airborne weapons teams including a 57mm ATG, MMG, 75mm pack Howitzer and 60mm mortar. All releases are currently available from the Warlord Games webstore and should be available in your FLGS in the coming days.


Finally, Games Workshop and Forge World round out the week’s releases with several exciting options. From Forge World we have the Legio Custodes Contemptor-Achillus Dreadnought, a beautiful and exciting addition to any Horus Heresy-era loyalist army. Games Workshop has released the final book in the Gathering Storm series, complete with the Triumvirate of the Primarch model set and Gathering Storm: Rise of the Primarch. This set includes an updated Cypher, Grey Knights Grand Master Voldus, and of course Primarch Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines. The release of Guilliman marks the first plastic non-daemon Primarch model ever released by Games Workshop. The kits from Forge World and Games Workshop are currently available for pre-order and will be available for regular purchase on March 11th.
