Lots of stuff at Warhammer Fest Europe:


Kill Team: Rogue Trader is a massive expansion to Kill Team that has something for every kind of player. Kill Team has offered us the chance to explore the 41st Millennium in ways that were never previously possible, with its intimate, ground-level scale letting us peek into the darker corners of the lore.

Kill Team: Rogue Trader is a milestone for Warhammer bringing Rogue Traders and their crews – the daring colonisers who claim new territory for the Imperium – to life in miniature form for the first time since Inquisitor. These miniatures are truly incredible, exploring in astounding detail a part of the lore that previously only dwelled in novels or background.

Your Rogue Trader and crew will be up against a host of repulsive Nurgle infected and renegade servants of the Plague God swollen with horrific mutations.

The Kill Team: Rogue Trader boxed set is more than miniatures – it’s a toolbox with something to offer for every Kill Team player, from those using the system to forge thrilling narratives to die-hard tournament players.

At its core, the set is an adventure that pits Rogue Trader Elucia Vhane against a fiendish strain of mutants in a series of narrative missions. You’ll be able to use both kill teams in your campaigns and matched play missions, with a set of datasheets and points values for each.

Essentially, you’re getting two Kill Team Starter Sets in one – as well as a thematic (and portable) pair of Killzones. In Rogue Trader, you’ll find rules, boards and terrain for playing in the cramped confines of the Imperial shuttle, the Truehawk, or an Imperial Shrine. As well as offering new tactical challenges, these boards make sparse but effective use of terrain, making it the perfect option for playing on the go. You’ll be able to fit the entire Killzone plus your kill team and datacards into a single Skirmish Case.

You’ll even be able to use both teams in your games of Warhammer 40,000, giving you yet another use for these stunning models.

A few days ago, we pulled the covers off a recent triumph in Orkish engineering with a reveal of the new and improved Ork Warbuggy – or, as they call it, the Kustom Boosta-blasta…

There’s a lot more on the way for the Greenskinz, with a new wave of wild and wonderful vehicles arriving this Orktober, spearheaded by Speed Freeks.

This boxed set pits you against a friend in a series of death races between a variety of Orkish speedsters, including the aforementioned Kustom Boosta-blasta and the Shokkjump Dragsta – a racer that uses shokk-attack technology to project itself ahead of the competition – or just into anyone that looks like they need smashin’ up.

Speed Freeks (and more) will be joining us in Orktober – until then, stand by (and maybe treat yourself to a Mek).

Due to overwhelming popular demand, Space Marine Heroes is going global. First introduced in Japan last year, we’ve had loads of feedback on social media that you guys want a chance to grab these models for yourself – and soon, you’ll have your chance.

Space Marine Heroes are highly collectable Space Marines that you’ll be able to pick up in blind packs at your local Warhammer and Games Workshop stores (as well as participating retailers). With a range of unique new designs, these guys are great for kill teams, adding some character to your squads or just guarding your desk while you work.

We’ve been waiting for ages to bring you a dedicated podcast for Warhammer 40,000 – with so much exciting stuff on the way, and having assembled a crack team for StormCast, now is the perfect time. Every other week, we’ll be bringing you a full hour of insights, tactics, tips and chat, offering you unprecedented access to the people who make the games you love.

Back at AdeptiCon, we revealed Sisters of Battle were coming in (if the Emperor wills it) 2019. We know you guys have been anticipating this release for years, and we want to assure you that Sisters of Battle are in the best possible hands.

After looking at the first of the new generation of Adepta Sororitas at AdeptiCon, today we’re previewing some early images as well as exploring how our miniatures designers have brought this iconic range to life.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

New stuff from NOVA!


For years, you’ve clashed across the most war-torn battlefields of the 41st Millennium in hard-fought skirmishes and titanic conflicts – but the galaxy is a huge place, with many dark corners still to explore.

Just as Warhammer Quest allowed you to visit the sinister labyrinth of the Silver Tower and the bustling underworld of Hammerhal, now it will put you at the heart of one of Warhammer 40,000’s most enduring mysteries – a Blackstone Fortress.

Part role-playing adventure, part battle game, Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress promises a cooperative narrative experience in the 41st Millennium like no other – and will feature a host of stunning new miniatures that bring all manner of champions and villains from the lore to life as never before.


Speed Freeks is a high-Orktane racing game set in the desert expanses of Vigilus, pitting Orkish bikes and buggies against one another in brutal, unpredictable death races. As well as containing the Shokkjump Dragsta and the Kustom Boosta-blasta, you’ll be able to bring all the rest of the new Ork buggies to your games.

Anyone else feel like the new Ork Buggy is rather too big? I mean, to get the most out of it, I feel like you'd need a game board the size of a whole room.


Fantastic new 40k fan film project underway, here's the first two episodes:

I've discovered an extremely cost-effective and interesting game by Osprey, who have carved out a niche of cheap, light tabletop games that are miniature-agnostic. This one in particular is called Gaslands and is a post-apocalyptic car combat game that is much more streamlined than stuff like Car Wars, but you use Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars to play it with and you are encouraged to modify them to be appropriately ramshackle/armoured:

Image

There are also plenty of guide videos about using old electronics, carboard and cheap paints/components from poundland etc to convert them:



I popped out earlier and picked up 8 hot wheels/poundland own-brand cars for £7, you couldn't get a quarter of one of those ork buggies for that I reckon.

Reminds me of a few painted matchbox style cars I did way back. One looks very similar to that, it has "trash" painted on the side, I pummelled it with a hammer :lol:

I may have raided the nearby Poundland/Tesco stores for suitable hot wheels and matchbox cars to get started on this :shifty: it's such a breath of fresh air to get so many models for a wargame at such low prices compared to GW etc.

Recently took up figure painting again.

Had to buy some reading glasses as my eyesight isn't what it used to be.

That's pretty good man, I might add a couple more highlights and flood a few near black washes/inks in the robe for example. Although the photo is just a bit underexposed.

Thanks. The photo isn't great and didn't pick out the highlights or shading as much as I would have liked, but that's purely down to me. I bought one of those Sony Cybershots (based on my budget) and haven't really gotten my head around it. Photography isn't my strong point.

A couple more. Still getting my head around this camera, but it'll do for now. (If anyone here uses a Sony Cybershot and can offer advice that would be great).

Thanks, mate, I just wish I could use this camera of mine more effectively.

have you tried with your mobile camera?
i think you need more natural light on these - difficult i know as not always the right time of day/area of the house to take them in

Mobile camera is naff, hence why I bought the camera for picture taking (not just figures, but family holidays etc).

Try manually bumping up the ISO to 400 or 800 although it may look grainy. Otherwise you need a longer exposure (shutter mode or S) but may be shaky on a cybershot, or opening up the aperture to the maximum amount, which is the LOWEST number (e.g. 2.8) on aperture priority mode (A).

If they weren't very good or something I couldn't muster a comment for minimal improvement I wouldn't post ;)

I think this is a tad better?
