Hello, TechRaptor readers! Here’s what you may have missed in the world of tabletop wargaming over the last week.
First up is two announcements from Games Workshop. The Flesh-Eater Courts, the newest faction of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar’s Death Grand Alliance, was announced on Saturday. Along with “Battletome: Flesh-Eater Courts” and accompanying models, the company also announced King Vlagorescu's Ghoulish Host, a bundle containing 31 Flesh-Eater models. The bundle is priced at $180 USD and provides a hefty savings of $96 USD over purchasing the models individually. All Flesh-Eater models and books are currently available for pre-order and will arrive in stores on March 14th.
The company also released a teaser trailer for Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, an updated version of the old Warhammer Quest board game set in the Mortal Realms rather than the Old World. Several images from the upcoming issue of White Dwarf have been leaked via War of Sigmar, showing off the contents of the game. Based on the available images, it appears that a Duardin Fyreslayer, human barbarian, Warrior Priest, Skaven Deathrunner, and Stormcast Eternal will be included in the game as well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhtqT2xhmn0
Forge World released a pic of Shar’tor the Executioner, the company’s first release for their Chaos Dwarves model range in many years. Aside from the image with the model shown next to a Daemonsmith for scale, the company has released little information. Shar’tor the Executioner will be initially available to purchase at Warhammer Fest this weekend, with a general site release shortly afterwards.
Raging Heroes continues their release preview blitz this week by releasing preview images for the Fantasy Sisters Angels and Dark Elf CrossbowWomen (no, that’s not a typo). The models are from their second Toughest Girls in the Galaxy Kickstarter campaign. And while the crowdfunding campaign is already completed, you can still add a late backer pledge and get your favorite TGG2 models once they’re ready.
Privateer Press has released an updated version of the Avatar of Menoth in anticipation of the upcoming release of the third edition of Warmachine and Hordes. The resculpt changes the model’s composition slightly, providing a more dynamic feel while adding plenty of new details as well. The model is a combination of resin and white metal and is currently slated for a release date of May 25th with a price tag of $64.99 USD.
The company also announced a new contest, offering a hunting trophy style bust of either a Dire Troll Bomber or an Ironclad for both the winner and the winner’s FLGS as well. Simply visit your FLGS between now and June 15th and scan the flyer’s QR code to sign up. The winner will receive their choice of either the Warmachine or Hordes bust. Contest details can be found here.
