First up is a surprise announcement from Corvus Belli concerning the 2016 Interplanetario tournament. Joining in on the livestreaming trend currently popular with video games, the convention will have several free and paid livestreams covering the event. The streams will cover everything from painting classes from Angel Giraldez to discussions on the upcoming Infinity manga to highlights from the tournament itself. Not only this, but the company is also running a brief raffle, giving away a pair of the paid streams to contestants. Full details and rules are available on the Corvus Belli website.

Warlord Games has published their Konflict ‘47 release schedule for the remainder of the year. September is set for the largest release month, with multiple models and units for both the Allies and the Germans. The first starter sets, featuring the British and Soviets, is currently slated for December, just in time for Christmas. A complete list of the year’s releases for Konflict ’47 is available here.

Mantic Games is currently having a clearance sale in order to make room in their warehouse for the Kickstarter backer deliveries for both Warpath and The Walking Dead – All Out War. Bundles for Mars Attacks are currently on sale, along with the various bundles for Kings of War, Warpath, and Dungeon Saga. If you’ve been interested in picking up anything from Mantic Games, now’s the perfect time to do so.

And finally, Games Workshop is continuing their Deathwatch release schedule with several additions to their latest force. The Corvus Blackstar, Venerable Dreadnought, Deathwatch Terminators, Deathwatch Librarian, Watch Master, Chaplain, and Vanguard Veterans are now available for pre-order with a release date of August 27th. In Warhammer: Age of Sigmar news, the company’s Season of War campaign recently came to a close, with the forces of Order gaining a solid victory in the Realm of Ghyran. Throughout the campaign, Order held a commanding advantage over the other factions, most likely attributed to the faction’s larger model ranges than Chaos, Death, or Destruction. Games Workshop has promised that the results of the Season of War campaign will have a noticeable effect on the Mortal Realms as a whole, though it is unclear when the fallout of this result will be apparent.
