Fish Kill side ad

It was just a few weeks ago when JoyToy‘s first releases for their line of Warhammer 40,000 were available for pre-order. The company is back with a tease of more of what’s to come.

You’ll soon be able to order a squad of four Ultramarines Intercessors with their Cawl-pattern bolt rifles and lots of accessories. Each Space Marine features two heads, with and without helmets. The Sergeant features a trusty chainsword.

If Ultramarines aren’t your thing, how about Death Company Intercessors? They feature their iconic black armor and red crosses that will make them stand out. All four hace chainswords and bolt pistols along with bolt rifles.

The Space Marines are about 4.75″ tall and feature 25 points of articulation.

But, it looks like JoyToy will be moving beyond just Space Marines, and bringing some heavier gear too. Check out the upcoming Primaris Invictor Tactical Warsuit!

Paizo Staff Launch United Paizo Workers to Unionize

United Paizo Workers

Announced in a series of tweets, over 30 members of the Paizo Publishing staff have formed United Paizo Workers (UPW). The movement is one of the first unions of its kind in the tabletop game industry. This is the first step to invoke a vote to form a union at the company. The organization is working with the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

Paizo is the game publishing company behind roleplaying games such as Pathfinder and Starfinder. The UPW has stated that Paizo’s workers are underpaid for their labor and are required to live in one of the most expensive cities in the world. There have also been claims of issues with management at the company including inconsistent hiring practices, pay inequity, harassment, and verbal abuse.

While changes have been promised by the executive team at Paizo, the UPW sees that collective action is the only way to guarantee that.

You can learn more at the UPW website which also has suggestions on how individuals can show their support.
