Forge World New Releases Include Necromunda and Lord of the Rings

This week’s new pre-orders from Forge World features two games and a bit of a surprise.

Necromunda sees the release of two new Hired Guns. Apollus Kage was a member of the Orlock gang the Sump Dogs. Krotus Hark, on the other hand, is a former Goliath who was born with that most dangerous of gifts – intelligence.

Both are now available for $41. Apollus Kage has also been designed so that his head, arms, and backpack are compatible with a large proportion of Necromunda miniatures for conversions.

The Lord of the Rings sees two releases this week.

Personalities of the Shire – Will Whitfoot and Baldo Tulpenny are available now for $21. Rally your Hobbits to fight with jolly old Will Whitfoot, the former mayor of Hobbiton. Meanwhile, take advantage of Baldo Tulpenny’s skills as a champion stone skimmer to attack Ruffians from afar or have him set a series of traps to slow down Sharkey’s men.

You can also ruff up some Hobbits with the Ruffian Leaders. They’re available for $33.

Ruffian Chief Sid Briarthorn, enforcer Rowan Thistlewood and spy Bill Ferny are here to take any unruly Hobbits off to the lockholes. Sid encourages your Ruffians to fight even harder, you can burn down Hobbit-holes with Rowan and use Bill’s information to keep track of the Shire Folk. You can also use all three to bind any pesky Hobbits in chains, leaving them helpless.

Gen Con 2019: Knight Models Reveals Watchmen, Mongul, Orm, Eradicator, Cyborg Superman, Metallo, and a new Superman

Knight Models usually isn’t at Gen Con but this year things are a little different. The game and miniature manufacturer has a small booth mostly set up for meetings. But, they do have a display of some of their miniatures and more importantly some new figures that’ll be coming out soon.

Paint up and on display are new Watchmen miniatures. With Doctor Manhattan present, one can assume these will be for the revamped DC Universe Miniature Game.

But, also on display and not painted up are new models that hearken back to the Reign of the Supermen storyline that ran in DC Comics after the Death of Superman. On display were Mongul, Mentallo, Cyborg Superman, Eradicator, and a new Superman figure.

On sale now is a Jason Mamoa inspired Aquaman. On display was his rival Orm!

And finally, the up for pre-order Doom Patrol were on display too.

Gen Con 2019: Marvel Gets a New Miniature Game, Marvel: Crisis Protocol Miniatures Game

At Gen Con 2019, Fantasy Flight Games announced Marvel: Crisis Protocol, a new miniature game from Atomic Mass Games. Atomic Mass Games was recently acquired by Asmodee. Atomic Mass Games was founded in 2018.

During Fantasy Flight’s In-Flight report it was revealed that the game is set in the Marvel Universe and is a skirmish miniature game that allows you to form a team of heroes and villains. Yes, you can mix the good guys and bad guys! You can also put together teams and get bonuses. You get to play out your own Marvel stories on the tabletop even down to throwing the terrain allowing the tabletop to evolve.

Spider-Man, Black Widow, and Captain Marvel will be some of the launch miniatures. The miniatures will be hard plastic allowing for high detail, ease of assembly, and durable.

The game will launch in the fall with a core set that will give you everything you need to build your team. Character packs will also be released that add new character, new scenarios, and new tactic cards. The first two are the Hulk and M.O.D.O.K. The game will also see terrain packs with famous locations from the Marvel Universe and will also include multiple modes of play. The first up is Raids where two individuals team up to take on a “boss” controlled by a third player. Narrative campaign sets will also be released down the road.

The game will also launch with Organized Play at stores.
