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

First up is Games Workshop’s announcement of their newest skirmish level game Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Skirmish. The game is designed to be a lower model count version of the standard Warhammer: Age of Sigmar game, and comes with six new battlegrounds, a campaign system, matched play rules and more. The game will also be fully compatible with the current Age of Sigmar model range, allowing players to jump into the Mortal Realms with a minimal investment. The new game release also coincides with the re-release of the Sigmarite Mausoleum and the new Soulblight Necropolis battle mat as well. All new products are currently available for pre-order with a release date of May 27th.

Corvus Belli has announced the next release wave for Infinity. A new starter pack for the Caledonian Highlander Army, PanOceania Bagh Mari with HMG, Yu Jing Ninjas, Nomads Zeroes, Haqqislam Hassassin Ayyar, ALEPH Danvas hacker and Karkata remote are currently listed, along with a new 300 point army pack for the Steel Phalanx sectorial army. All new releases will hit FLGS shelves in mid-June.

Privateer Press has announced some upcoming releases for the Retribution of Scyrah. The House Shyeel Arcanists unit and Priest of Nyssor solo have a release date of June 28th. Both miniatures are cast in metal and will come in small blister packs. The House Shyeel Arcanists come with an MSRP of $24.99 USD and the Priest of Nyssor will retail at $10.99 USD.

Raging Heroes has released the Heroines box for the Sisters of Eternal Mercy army from their latest Toughest Girls of the Galaxy model range. The Heroines box contains either 4 heroines (Sister Ardanna, Sister Celenia, Doralys, Rythali-in) and two mascots (Tobias and Vladimir), or just the 4 heroines. The heroines come with bits to make both the sci-fi or fantasy version (depending on the heroine). Buying the 6 figure box will net customers a 12% discount, while the 4 figure box comes with a 6% discount.

And finally, the newest releases for Dark Age are now available to the general public rather than the CMON Expo attendees. The 2017 Master Rulebook and secondary objective deck are not only available for purchase, but can be downloaded for free. This release wave also contains a pair of releases for the Dragyri. The Lost Character and Ice Caste unit boxes. Rounding out the release wave are a group of unit boxes for both the Bounty Hunters and C.O.R.E., including a C.O.R.E. faction starter box.
