Games Workshop Reveals Two New Boxed Games, Space Marine Adventures and Blitz Bowl

Easy entry points are a struggle for tabletop miniature games and companies like Games Workshop. The publisher has been focusing on more board game releases over the recent years which not only provides a game to play but also miniatures you can use to build an army down the road. They’re an introduction to the world and hobby.

At New York Toy Fair the company unveiled two new games, Space Marine Adventures and Blitz Bowl. Both are playable out of the box and will be released later this year.

Space Marine Adventures is for 1 – 4 players who attempt to break into the Necron labyrinth. Each character plays a unique Space Marine with special skills and from photos, the characters look like the hard to get Japanese Space Marine Heroes and each figure representing a unique chapter. The miniatures are assembled from easy-build kits. An easy introduction into the 41st Millennium and Warhammer 40,0000. The game is suitable for players 8 and up.

Blitz Bowl is set in the Blood Bowl arena. Gameplay is with smaller teams and faster actions. playing similarly, but with smaller teams and faster actions. The game’s concept and contents are similar to another similar product from the past, Kerrunch.

Pre-Order Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists and Imperial Fists Legion Templar Brethren Today from Forge World

A being of thunderous zeal and stone made manifest, is how many described the Primarch of the VIIth Legion. The zeal was the fire of a son who believed in his father’s dream for the Imperium without reservation and without question. To Rogal Dorn there was no higher purpose to the existence of the Legiones Astartes than the unification of Mankind, and the illumination of the Imperium’s ideals. This idealism drove Dorn and his Legion ever onwards, never compromising, never stinting in any aspect of duty. The stone in his soul was his ability to bear whatever his father needed of him, an unyielding nature, which made him both a master of defence in war, and an indomitable fighter on the attack.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble Rogal Dorn. Rogal Dorn is supplied as 24 parts, and comes with 2 bases – the first is a 40mm gaming base, which slots snugly into a 105x70mm oval diorama base. The diorama base features a series of concrete steps, with the body of a deceased Space Marine (and parts of another) lying at Dorn’s triumphant feet.

Rules for Rogal Dorn can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions.

Get it now for £75.
