After centuries of slumber, Ivan ‘the Animal’ Deathshroud is awake to head to the Blood Bowl arena to do battle.
The Block, Juggernaut, and Regeneration skills make him a tough nut to crack on offense or defense, and his special Dwarfen Scourge ability helps him bash right through an opponent’s armor once per game. As that name suggests, it’s even better against Dwarves after centuries of built-up anger against them.
Ivan is just 190,000 GP and ready for a spot on Sylvanian Spotlight teams. The figure is in resin and coming from Forge World soon.
While we wait for the release of Warhammer 40K 10th edition in June, Games Workshop has some releases to get you ready with Kill Team, some made to order Space Marines, and releases for Horus Heresy and Necromunda. Check out everything coming to pre-order next week.
Kill Team: Ashes of Faith bridges the gap between the previous season of releases and the next. It falls to the clandestine warriors of the Inquisition to lead the charge against these forces of sedition. Kill Team: Ashes of faith provides a lengthy narrative campaign focused on a group of these operatives and their attempt to purge a whole planet of a malignant Chaos Cult. There are 40 miniatures, 23 for the Chaos Cult, and 17 assorted Inquisitorial Agents. Seven of these are brand-new dual-build miniatures that allow you to build a rag-tag band of hyper-talented weirdos. The set also contains the Ashes of Faith Campaign Rulebook with all the rules for playing out this planet-spanning narrative, and dozens of accessories.
Campaigns of The Age of Darkness: The Siege of Cthonia is out for Warhammer: The Horus Heresy. The 240-page supplement features a hefty lore section, campaign rules for playing out the key battles of the siege, new rules for claustrophobic Zone Mortalis battles, as well as new options for units and wargear including Inductii, tank commanders, and the Infernus Abomination.
The Vindicator Siege Tank will allow you to bombard enemy fortifications and enemy squads with its hull-mounted demolisher cannon. You’ll be able to get this plastic kit to add to your forces.
Get ready for Warhammer 40K 10th edition with these made to order figures. They will be available to order for nine days, between the 20th of May and the 29th of May at 8am UK-time – and they may take up to 180 days to arrive.
In plastic, there’s the Primaris Company Champion and the Blood Angels Captain in Terminator Armour. In resin are Brother Corbulo, Chapter Master Pedro Kantor, Chapter Master Gariel Seth, Flesh Tearers Shoulder Pads, Darnath Lysander, Dark Angels Company Master, Captain Sicarius, Sergeant Chronus, and Sergeant Telion. In resin, with plastic parts are Captain Tycho, Chaplain Cassius, and the Tyrannic War Veterans. And finally, in metal and plastic is the White Scars Khan on Bike.
From Forge World is Lord-castellan Evander Garrius – The Tyrant of Cthonia. Evander Garrius is one of the most decorated Imperial Fists, though his brutish methods and casual disregard for the wellbeing of his brothers have marked him out as something of a pariah.
Vheren Ashurhaddon – Master of the True Sons quickly rose through the ranks of the Luna Wolves. His zeal drew to him a cadre of highly skilled Chtonian Legionaries – known as the True Sons.
The Infernus Abomination is an assassin for the traitor legions and will be released in resin.
The last batch of Contemptor Dreadnought Torso Upgrades are on the way and include the Salamanders, the Ultramarines, the Word Bearers, the Alpha Legion, the Raven Guard, and the Thousand Sons.
If closed combat is your thing, you’ll want the Despoiler Squad Upgrade Set.
For Necromunda comes the Outland Beastmaster with Millisaurs. The set features three resin models to add to your gang.
The Black Library Warhammer 40,000 eShorts Week Subscription will be available starting on Monday the 22nd of May and runs until the 26th of May. This collection also includes three Black Library authors making their debut. The full lineup is Altar of Maws by Peter Fehervari, A Forbidden Meal by Carrie Harris, The Dust That Remains by J H Archer, The Whispering Blade by Matthew Harffy, and Stealing Orpheon by Richard Ford.
Kill Team: Gallowfall is the final boxed expansion for this season of Kill Team. A deep-space salvage team from the Leagues of Votann battle with a braying band of Beastmen for possession of long-lost Ironkin cognitive units. This boxed set contains parts and rules for both of these kill teams, as well as a set of Gallowdark terrain with exciting new bells and whistles to play nine new missions.
The Fellgor Ravagers are bestial abhumans that have come to call the Gallowdark home, creating profane sites of worship around headstones carved from chunks of hull. Unruly masses of flesh, fur, teeth, and horns, each one is a skilled hunter and depraved killer. Their savagery stands in the way of the calculating technological might of the Hearthkyn Salvagers, who reclaim valuable relics and resources from the dark corners of the cosmos.
The Beastmen are an all-new kill team, with 10 models who can be built as Fellgor Warriors or a range of fiendish specialists – including an Ironhorn, a Shaman, a Fluxbray and more. The kit also includes loads of interchangeable heads and horns, for that full custom Chaos experience.
The Leagues of Votann kill team comprises a set of Hearthkyn Warriors with an additional sprue of new upgrade components, allowing you to build operatives such as the Kognitâar, Lugger, and Jump-pack Warrior.
The set also contains Kill Team: Gallowfall, a 120-page tome containing full rules for using both teams and the new terrain pieces in a set of nine linked missions. As for terrain, you get a full set of Gallowdark corridors and hatches, plus 18 new pieces including escape pods, autopsy tables, surgical chairs, stasis pods, medical supply tables, and iron lungs. On top of that, there’s a double-sided game board and a sheet of Leagues of Votann transfers!
The Adeptus Arbites get their first standalone release for roughly two decades with Kill Team: Exaction Squad, and this Exaction Squad is very flexible. The kit can build an Exaction Squad kill team of 10 Arbitrators and a loyal R-VR Cyber-mastiff, with plenty of specialists trained to track down the Imperium’s most wanted.
Those who want to bring the law to the battlefields of Warhammer 40,000 can also build a whole Subductor Squad armed with shock mauls and assault shields, or a full Vigilant Squad armed with combat shotguns and heavier weaponry – both of which get a R-VR Cyber-mastiff of their own.
Killzone Upgrade: Soulshackle helps to add some variety to your killzone. It includes four breach points – with pop-out damaged wall action – and additional terrain details like a holoith dias, augur displays, and hatchway jammers. You can use these upgrades to build your dream killzone, and to augment your Boarding Action games with the new Breaching Operation missions found in Arks of Omen: The Lion.
The Kill Team: Fellgor Ravagers Dice Set will help gain favors with the Chaos Gods. They’re cast in black with orange pips and the Fellgor Ravagers logo on the six face.
The ever-useful Stratagem cards return in four themed packs, previously available for a limited time only. Loyalist and Traitor Princeps each get a pack of their own handy reference cards, containing seven Stratagems unique to their chosen allegiance, nine Legio-specific cards, and 10 general cards usable by any side.
The Defence of Ryza card pack grants access to Experimental Warfare and Tricks and Tactics Stratagems, alongside 15 Legio-specific campaign cards usable with the rules found in the Campaign Compendium. Knight Households also get their own Stratagem cards, with universal Knight Stratagems and House-specific options like their larger Legio cousins.
Whip up a Titan-sized battle in moments with the Open Engine War Card Pack – a selection of 50 cards that make setting up your games a doddle. Randomly selected cards give plenty of Deployment Maps, Primary and Secondary Objectives, and optional Planetary Effects to ensure no two battles are quite alike, and all you’ll need is the base Adeptus Titanicus Rulebook to use them.
Leave the opposing team battered and bruised with Dribl & Drull, a pair of low-down dirty players to add to your Lustrian Superleague teams. Dribl and Drull are a pair of infuriatingly sneaky skinks who will work in tandem to tackle and stab their way to victory while dancing beyond reach of reprisal. This pack contains two resin models.
Withergrasp Doubledrool is a heavily mutated Beastman with two heads and tentacles aplenty. He/they employs his/their god-given gifts in “Favoured of…” teams, proving difficult to take down, and even harder to escape from when they take up residence on the line of scrimmage. Withergrasp Doubledrool will be available in resin.
The Great Devourer: The Leviathan Omnibus is a collection of stories featuring these ravenous xenos by Black Library authors Guy Haley, Josh Reynolds, Braden, Campbell, Joe Parrion, L J Goulding, and Nick Kyme. This hefty collection will be available in paperback.
The Order of Our Martyred Lady is filled with the most battle-hungry and renowned warriors across the Adepta Sororitas.

Justin D Hill’s Pilgrims of Fire is the first story in a series covering the major Orders, and will be available in hardback, eBook, and audiobook formats.
Meeting your heroes is never a good idea, and it might be an even worse prospect in the 41st Millennium. Ace pilot Lucille von Shard is set to star in a cinema-pict about the air war on planet Bacchus, but the hero Imperial Propagandist Kile Simlex expects to find turns out to be an arrogant misanthrope… who just so happens to be the only thing between the approaching Green Storm. Outgunned is a high-flying tale by Denny Flowers, and will be available in paperback.
Colonel Haskell ‘Hell Fist’ Aldalon and the Catachan 57th Jungle Fighters have been dispatched to Gondwa VI to help prise it from the grip of an ever-growing ork threat. Their plan is to go on a full offensive and retake a strategically vital stronghold, but there are complications afoot – among them, a hapless rookie tagging along… German readers can enjoy Catachan Devil by Justin Woolley for the first time in paperback and eBook.
The T’au Empire has shot down a Valkyrie carrying an Astra Militarum general on the besieged planet of Dasht i-Kevar. The secrets they will gain may imperil the entire war effort – unless Captain Bharath Obeysekera and his squad of elite Kasrkin can weather the hazards of the desert wastes and get the general back. Kasrkin by Edoardo Albert will be available for French readers in hardback and eBook.
French readers can continue their exploration of the Horus Heresy as the Mark of Calth anthology, Vulkan Lives by Nick Kyme, and The Unremembered Empire by Dan Abnett are brought together in one volume for the first time.
At Warhammer Fest 2023, two new figures for the anticipated Warhammer: The Old World were revealed. They’re both resin models while the game will have a mix of releases through Citadel plastic and Forge World resin. These two figures join a range of resurrected and revitalized miniatures from prior editions of Warhammer Fantasy Battles.
Check out the brand new Tomb King from Nehekhara and a Bretonnian Paladin!
Warhammer Fest 2023 is in full swing and another round of reveals has been released including an intriguing teaser. The video below teases commanding “legions” and with the image, is it the return of the classic game Epic with a Horus Heresy twist? With the video called “Battle on a New Scale,” the signs are intriguing…
Epic was a miniature game where instead of commanding individual figures, you moved squads at a small scale. The game was first released in 1988 as Adeptus Titanicus and has gone through various editions. With the puttering release of the current Adeptus Titanicus, a return of troops and tanks might be an easy way to inject life into the system.
Games Workshop has revealed two new star players for Blood Bowl! Puggy Baconbreath returns and he’s joined by Cindy Piewhistle!
Cindy features the Bombardier skill and can throw a second pie with the All You Can Eat special rule. Puggy features Halfling Luck. They can both be taken by teams playing in the Halfling Thimble Cup or Old World Classic.
You’ll be able to add them to your lineup soon. The two figures will be in resin in one box that contains their rules and will be coming from Forge World.

It contains 17 miniatures including a Chaos Lord, 10 iconic Chaos Warriors in full multi-part glory, five Chaos Knights with the new upgrade sprue, and a chariot which can be pulled by horses or a savage gorebeast for line-breaking charges.
The new Daemon Prince is a kit many are looking forward to. It has a lot of options allowing the miniature to be used in Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000. Different heads, and a choice of weapons, allows you to customize yours to worship a specific Chaos God!
The Chaos Lord on Karkadrak is now available on its own making it easier for you to add this beast to your army.
