Fish Kill side ad

Forge World has two new releases today for Blood Bowl. You can add new star players to your teams or just get some awesome figures to enjoy!

Star Player Skrull Halfheight has achieved Blood Bowl immortality in more ways than one – not only is he Undead, but he’s a thrower the likes of which has never been seen among the Dwarfs. Add this Hall of Famer to your Sylvanian Spotlight or Worlds Edge Superleague team to add some deft passing moves to your playbook.

The Undead Dwarf Thrower, Skrull Halfheight can play for both Undead and Dwarf teams. The figure retails for $30 and is a 7 piece resin model.

Skrull Halfheight Blood Bowl

She may be a Star Player, but Gretchen Wächter famously hates the game. Yet her fury makes this vengeful spectre formidable indeed – she terrifies opponents with her mournful, unnatural wailing and slips through tightest cages to sack the ball carrier thanks to her incorporeal form. She makes for a (no) handy asset to any Sylvanian Spotlight team.

Gretchen Wächter can be induced to play for any Sylvanian Spotlight team. The figure retails for $30 and the resin model comes in 7 pieces.

Games Workshop Reveals the T’au Remora for Aeronautica Imperialis

Fish Kill side ad

The T’au are getting some new additions to their fleet for Aeronautica Imperialis, the Remora Drones! These AI-controlled aircraft are coming soon from Forge World.

The Remora are light fighters as opposed to defensive drones. They’re mainly used to fly in environents too hostile for traditional aircraft but have evolved to be so much more. They are now used as a support role adding extra firepower.

With good speed and agility, they can get their weapons into good firing position, made to take on clunkier bombers. They also have the ability to hover in place to create bottlenecks.

Armed with burst cannons and a pair of seeker missiles they can take out far more expensive aircraft their pitted against.

They also benefit from the “Stealth” rule due to their size giving them some protection against enemy ground assets.

They also are able to ignore g-force making it easier to execute tight turns making them very nimble. The “Jink” rule allows them to slip into advantageous firing positions or dodge out of a deadly fire arc.

Elite shock troops adept at sowing panic and dismay with their arrival, the Contekar Elites’ talents for steadfast prosecution of war was much vaunted amongst the Legions during the Great Crusade. Contekar Terminators are butchers and murderers of a high order, to be called upon when the VIII Legion wished to bring more than terror but utter and abject despair and destruction upon a foe, to bur their armies, infrastructure and agriculture, and to topple the foundations of their civilization.

You can order them now for $98.

Contekar Terminators

Escher gangers are attracted to the big cats of Phyrr in particular for their exotic looks and killer instincts. Such beasts are rare in the extreme, and smuggling them planetside to Hive Primus is no mean feat, so they are an incredibly rare sight as pets even amongst the hierarchy of House Escher. Yet seen they are, and when the opportunity to acquire such a beast, or even better, a mating pair, arises, Escher gang queens will go to any lengths to secure them.

You can get two Phyrr cats for $33.
