Free Comic Book Day is a yearly event taking place at local comic shops where fans are able to get free comics and limited edition items. It takes place the first Saturday in May each year and in 2019 falls on Saturday, May 4, 2019!
In years past WizKids has released items for the day from their Heroclix and Dice Masters lines of games, each having deep roots in comics. This year sees two releases.
The PX Iron Man HeroClix: Free Comic Book Day Figure from Wizkids/NECA has an enhanced paint job and effects and will include an exclusive HeroClix figure and card in a polybag with hangtag. The PX Marvel Dice Masters Promo Starter Pack includes Marvel Dice Masters: Uncanny X-Men Dice-Building Game Starter Set and Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers – Age of Ultron Starter Set.
Earlier this year, Games Workshop announced that it would be releasing event exclusive miniatures.
At Blood & Glory, they revealed their first, the Primaris Space Marines Lieutenant which will be available at independently run Warhammer events starting in 2019 starting with AdeptiCon in March.
Announced at Blood & Glory, Games Workshop is making it easier to manage two games.
They are releasing “Command Roster” for Kill Team which will be a free online tool to build matched play-ready kill teams.
Warhammer Underworlds gets “Deck Builder.” Games Workshop is working with Udeck to make it easier to build your decks for the game. It’ll also make sure your deck is tournament legal.
During the week, Games Workshop has been teasing their new miniature board game, Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress. The game takes their popular tabletop RPG miniatures game and brings it the the 40K universe.

There will also be a new book Gangs of the Underhive which will have rules for all six of the House Gangs plus Hangers-on, Brutes, the trading post and more.
