New Hundred Kingdoms Expansions launch for Para Bellum’s Conquest

Para Bellum Wargames has revealed new units for Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings and Conquest: First Blood. Coming soon is a new cavalry unit for the human faction of the Hundred Kingdoms.  Fast and defensive, the Mounted Squires are here to push the line for the Hundred Kingdoms warlords, giving that extra edge on the battlefield. To further enhance the classic medieval human faction, a full array of three tactical retinue miniatures is also released, allowing the full customization options for all Hundred Kingdoms characters! And for the cherry on top, the Neophyte is here to boost the infantry of the Militia and the Men-at-Arms!

The Mounted Squires and the Tactical retinue open the way for new strategies to the Hundred Kingdoms warlords, as well as customization options for each Character and even a boost to simpler units, like the Militia and the Men-at-Arms!

Trained for war since their early years, the Mounted Squires are here to earn their Knighthoods in the only way tradition demands: to wet their blades on the field of battle. The agile playstyle of this Light Cavalry regiment, as well as the Shield special rule, will allow these aspiring youths to press the line of battle and hold their ground, allowing for constant pressure on the field. Enhanced by their tactical retinues, clever commanders will be able to find new and inspired ways to control the field of battle, as well as its final outcome! Together with the subtle but significant boost the Neophyte Command Model provides to infantry, these new additions can shine on the fields of both the mass combats of “The Last Argument of Kings” and the skirmish battles of “First Blood!”

Coming in early February worldwide, the Neophyte, Mounted Squires and Tactical Retinue will excite Hundred Kingdom players.

Mantic Games’ Riftforged Sees New Incoming Forces

This coming week sees new units being released for Riftforged from Mantic Games. Check out what you’ll be able to bring to the tabletop soon!

Stormslayer

Stormslayers are massive creatures created from the same stock as trolls, but exposure to the Nexus of Power drove them to a rage-fuelled frenzy. Each has a pair of great falchions, with which they could control the lightning that might otherwise consume them. In battle, the Stormslayers are driven by pain-fuelled rage, and with each sweep of their falchions the foe are smote with the very force of the storm.

Stormslayer

Thunderseers

The Thunderseers are abominations, crafted from cyclopes, their souls fragmented by exposure to the Nexus. They are tortured creatures, driven almost to the brink of madness by their gift of foresight.

Thunderseers

Stormcaller on Manticore

Stormcallers act as messengers and emissaries, often delivering the orders of the High Marshalls or even one of the Wicked Ones directly from the Abyss to the field of battle.

Stormcaller on Manticore

Riftforged Orcs Regiment

Infused with the power of Halpi’s Rift, the Riftforged orcs are a breed apart from their green-skinned cousins. Though hunched, they stand as tall as a man, but are considerably broader and well-muscled. Their faces are bestial, with jutting lower jaws and sharp teeth, but these are creatures of brutal intelligence.

Daredevil, Elektra, and The Hand Revealed, Plus Grunts Explained for Marvel: Crisis Protocol

2022 looks like it’s going to be an interesting year for Atomic Mass GamesMarvel: Crisis Protocol. We already have some intriguing releases revealed plus a whole new aspect to the game… Grunts!

Already teased, we now have a good look at the new “Shadowland” Daredevil, Elektra, and the Hand, all coming to the game soon.

"Shadowland" Daredevil, Elektra, and the Hand

But, the bigger news is Grunts and how they’ll work in the game. Grunts are low-level characters, think minions and henchmen, the cannon fodder.

Grunts are described as the “nameless backdrop” by Atomic Mass Games. In the game, Grunts are tied to a Parent character. They can’t enter the battlefield or be used on rosters or squards without their Parent. They’re so tied together Grunts need the Parent to even take actions. If the Parent character goes down, so goes the Grunts. But, Parents can be a part of the team without Grunts, we’ve got a heirarchy here people!

Parents will have superpowers and abilities that call Grunts in and dismiss them as well. Grunts can’t play or be chosen by allied Team Tactic Cards.

Grunts can activate with their Parent. When the Parent goes, so does the Grunts. And, a Parent can only have one Grunt character in play at a time.

Unlike current characters, Grunts don’t have Injured sides and can’t be Dazed, instead if they’re Dazed, they’re immediately KO’d instead.

This new aspect opens up a whole lot of possibilities. We’ve seen the Hand and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents but now maybe we’ll see A.I.M., Hydra agents, or even Doom Bots!

New Warhammer 40,000 Combat Patrols Make Your 2022 Army Building Easier

Games Workshop has revealed new Warhammer 40,000 Combat Patrols for 2022 to help build out your forces or start a new one!

T’au, Grey Knights, Adeptus Custodes, Genestealer Cults, and Thousand Sons are all getting new Combat Patrol releases.

Combat Patrols have retailed for $140 and featured pretty decent savings. If things remain the same, how do these stack up?

  • T’au: ~$218 retail separately, the Ethereal figure currently is only in the Start Collecting box.
  • Grey Knights: ~$175, the box features a five man Strike Squad making the value a little less than others.
  • Adeptus Custodes: ~$218, the box has a nice mix and is one of the more intriguing releases and the box’s value will really be determined by what units you can make out of it as is.
  • Genestealer Cults: ~$258, if this one keeps the regular retail price for the boxes, it might be one of the best values out there and as far as a force, this one looks like a really solid way to start.
  • Thousand Sons: ~$178, the character included isn’t currently offered on its own so this one’s a bit of a guess. The inclusion of so many Tzaangors and no Rubric Marines is a bit odd.
