Games Workshop Returns to Comics with Marvel

Games Workshop

Games Workshop has had a spotty history with comics with runs that come and go and rotate publishers. Comics based on GW properties are returning as the company is teaming up with Marvel for a whole new era. Details as far as properties and what creative teams have not been announced.

This isn’t the first time GW properties have wound up in Marvel comics, though previously it wasn’t so legal.

GW, with popular games like Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, and more, has deep and rich game fluff ripe for use in greater media. The game publisher is considered to have untapped potential which is finally getting the spotlight. On top of the comic announcement, a television show has been announced based on one of the characters from Warhammer 40k.

Comics began being published through Black Library, some of which were award-winning. BOOM! Studios picked up the license in 2006 and lost it about mid-2009. Titan Comics began publishing comics in 2016 which ended in 2018.

New comics come to shelves autumn 2020.

Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture Pits Khorne against Slaanesh

At Blood & Glory, Games Workshop revealed a brand new boxed set “Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture” that pits the Daemons of Khorne against their Chaos rivals, the Daemons of Slaanesh.

The set will include lots of new miniatures and GW has revealed new Flesh Hounds and Fiends of Slaanesh. There’s lots more to come!

This sounds like a box set that’s a must for Chaos players for both Age of Sigmar and 40K.

WizKids Delivers the The Rise & Fall of Anvalor, Their New Board Game Based on Age of Sigmar

Games Workshop has revealed their newest licensed game from WizKids, the new board game set in the Age of SigmarThe Rise & Fall of Anvalor. Here’s the story so far…

“Many previous attempts to build a lasting fortification at Anvalor have failed. Its strategic location on the Great Parch, a particularly arid region of Aqshy, the Realm of Fire, is of supreme importance. However, each new effort to establish a significant foothold has also irked a new foe, an enemy who rises to the challenge of thwarting the attempt. Equally distant from Anvilgard, Hammerhal Aqsha and the City of Brimstone, the competing factions of those great cities have put their quarrels aside and committed to a final push to rebuild Anvalor together. Whoever can secure the new stronghold will also dominate the Great Parch, significantly strengthening their influence in all the Mortal Realms.”

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: The Rise & Fall of Anvalor is for 1-4 player game with games lasting about one hour. Players compete to gather the most influence in Anvalor to dominate and cause the city’s downfall. The player with the most influence wins!

There are six playable factions, the famous Aqshian rivals, the Hammers of Sigmar and the Khornate legions of Khorgos Khul, the Vorstarg Fyreslayer Lodge and the Order Serpentis.

Games Workshop Announces Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: Soul Wars

There’s a new edition of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar on the horizon and Games Workshop has revealed the contents for the “Soul Wars” boxed set.

The miniature game publisher has announced that every model in the kit is “push fit” which allows you to easily put together your armies with just a pair of clippers.

The Generals Handbook 2018 allows you to diversify your games even further with 12 more battleplans as well as new rules for summoning for every army.

Killer from the Underhive, Deep, and on the Pitch in this Week’s Games Workshop Pre-Orders

There’s a lot of pre-orders this week from Games Workshop that cover Age of Sigmar, Necromunda, and Blood Bowl!

The company has new units you can add to your Idoneth Deepkin, the Isharann Tidecaster. It is the Tidecasters who conjure the phantasmal sea that allows aelf and aquatic beast to move and breathe as if they were in their own natural environment.

Also available will be Isharann Soulscryers. With their cyfar compasses and dowserchimes, the Soulscryers can map the dark corners of a being’s soul as well as those of the mortal realms, marking them out as navigators and priests among the Idoneth.

Finally, you’ll also be able to get a Isharann Soulrender. The Soulrenders are unusual amongst the Isharann, for they are trained alongside the Akhelians, and are well accustomed to acting at the forefront of battle. Upon each Soulrender’s helm dangles a lurelight, its strange glow attracting and absorbing souls.

For Necromunda, you’ll have multiple choices to add to your game.

Gang War 3 will expand your game with new rules, weapons, units, and missions. The 90-page book contains rules for ganges of House Van Saar, expanded house equipment lists, Brutes, the Traind Post, Status Items, Arbitrated Campaigns, multiplayers games, new Hired Guns, and more scenery to check out.

You’ll also be able to add the high-tech Van Saar to the Underhive. House Van Saar is the technological powerhouse of Necromunda, its artisans and armourers creating the finest weapons and wargear of all the clans. Their staggering power, however, is built around a dark secret – flaws in their understanding of technology that bathe them in radiation and slowly kill them from within.

Also out will be dice and cards.

Finally, Blood Bowl has a few releases.

It’s Chaos on the field with the debut of the Doom Lords. The exact identity of the owner of the Doom Lords is unknown – he is referred to commonly as ‘The Overfiend’. When establishing his team, the Overfiend cut no corners. He hired the best coach money could buy and equipped him with the best assistants, entered into numerous dark pacts with various daemonic entities and searched long and hard for the best players who could be coerced into joining him. Those who refused soon learned that the Overfiend has a very literal interpretation of the term ‘headhunting’…

Also, Spike! Journal, a new periodical that’s a must for every coach with new rules, advice, and more.

Finally, there’s Star Player cards to help every manager.

And what’s Blood Bowl without dice!?
