The Nords Skald and Konungyr and Iced Jotnar are Coming for Conquest

Fish Kill side ad

Para Bellum Wargames, the developer and publisher of the fantasy Regimental Miniature Wargame Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings and Skirmish system Conquest: First Blood, turned its attention to the Nords faction and revealed not one, not two but three new releases. Among them, the dreaded but imposing Ice Jotnar, specially sculpted for Conquest by renowned sculptor Michael Kontraros.

The new releases will see a whole new character becoming available to Nords players, bringing a new Supremacy Ability and allowing new Restricted units to be fielded. Coming in August to your FLGS, the Konungyr proves that the fragmented leadership of the Nords respects only one thing: power and strength. Only they can command enough respect to field an Ice Jotun, for the Ice Jotnar are the nobility of their kind and most powerful among the giants. Joining their Konungyr in September, this Monster is gifted with the power of storm and ice, their combat prowess going far beyond the swinging of their massive weapon or even the unforgiving cold their mere presence emanates. As if summoned to tell the tales such powerful new additions promise, the Command Upgrade model of the Skald completes the trio of Nords releases, and all Nord warriors, from the mightiest Jarl to the youngest raider, will fight like lions beneath his gaze, hoping to be immortalized in song.

Released in August (Skald and Konungyr) and September (Ice Jotnar), the end of the summer will bring warmth to the hearts of Nord Warlords everywhere… and terror to their enemies.

Knight Models has revealed Batman: Escape From Arkham Asylum. Coming to Kickstarter in the Fall, the game is for 1 to 5 players.

In the game, you play as the villains and have to fight Batman as you attempt to get out of Arkham Asylum.

There are seven main characters, Poison Ivy, Bane, Scarecrow, Two-Face, Penguin, Harley Quinn, and the Joker. There’s “hundreds” more characters being worked on along with “skins” for characters. The intention is to create the “biggest” Batman game on Kickstarter ever. And that means expansions!

As the project has months to go before its launch, Knight Models is also looking for feedback as to what gamers want to see.

We’ll have more as soon as Knight Models releases more information.

Waaagh! Orks are Getting a Massive Update for Warhammer 40,000

Fish Kill side ad

The Orks are coming for Warhammer 40,000 and they’re getting a hell of an update that’s a bit of a throwback to their 2nd and 3rd edition days and twist on the Snakebites Clan. As been teased for some time, A new Ork tribe, Beast Snaggas, is coming relying heavily on Squigs including ones to ride and massive ones that are the size of war machines. Also teased are new Defkoptas which haven’t had an update since “Black Reach”.

Shown off is a new Ork Kill Rig, a massive miniature that features a giant Squig pulling a warmachine and packed with weapons. Think a massive battlewagon but pulled by a Squig. The first option for it features a Wurrboy in a tower and a second option features a massive harpoon. It’s also a transport and solid in close combat!

The new Beastboss is the warboss equivalent for the Beast Snagga Orks. The power klaw has a bit of a more bone styling about it and the miniature features a small squig on its shoulder to shoot.

Mozrog Skargbad is the rider of Chompa the Great White Squig. He’s the biggest, baddest, Beastboss and named character for the army. Also revealed is a Beastboos on Squigosaur which can also be made from the same kit.

New Ork Boyz has been revealed that look like a nice update to the classic Boyz which hasn’t had an update for a long time. They have a similar aesthetic to the classic figures and should match the current range well.

New Deffkoptas are coming! A new multipart kit is coming updating a kit that hasn’t been updated since “Black Reach”. The figures look like they’d fit in well with those older models.

A new terrain piece is coming, a Big’ed Bossbunka. It’s a command center for the army leader and allows them to shout their commands to the army. There’s also a massive amount of shootas bolted on.

Big'ed Bossbunka

The Beast Snagga launch box will be available on July 17 so you don’t need to wait too long to get some of the new models including a new codex!
