Adeptus Titanics – The Titans are coming!

With the 2018 release of Adeptus Titanicus, Games Workshop relaunched the series of the same name, 30 years after its initial release.

Adeptus Titanicus - Boxes

Adeptus Titanicus covered the battles between the Titan Legions of the Warhammer 40,000 universe in a much smaller scale than the initial 25 later 28mm, the so called Epic scale, where an infantry miniature was 6mm tall. But the game was set in M30, during the Horus Heresy and as the Space Marines fought a fratridical war, so did the Titan Legions against their traitorous brethren.

Konflikt 47 US Mudskipper Jump Walker

Konflikt '47 is a joint project by Warlord Games and Clockwork Goblin and is set upon an updated Bolt Action's First Edition ruleset. In addition to the regular Bolt Action products, that can be used with Konflikt '47, there are a couple of items that were specifically designed for the range.

Like many of the post '46 World War settings, Konflikt '47 adds mech-like walkers, and today we're going to take a look on the Mudskipper Jump Walker, one of the Allied medium walkers. In the medium class, are a couple of other variants available like the M8 Grizzly, Kodiak and Bruin walkers.

Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress

Back in 1989, Games Workshop teamed up with Hasbro / MB and released with Heroquest - a fantasy board game with miniatures. For many this was the beginning of their wargaming hobby. Due to the fact, that it was a board game and sold as such in toy stores and not "just" comic book and gaming stores, the game reached a much broader audience. 2 years after they stopped producing Heroquest in 1993, a derivative - Warhammer Quest - was introduced. Still using the Citadel Miniatures but featuring now modular floor tiles instead of a fixed board, the game was a success and received a lot of additional content in form of supplements, articles in White Dwarf and Citadel Journal. And now, with Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress Games Workshop continues the more than 20 year old brand and expands it for the first time into the universe of Warhammer 40,000 (as Space Crusade etc. are games of their own).

It comes a bit as a surprise, as we already had quite a lot of boxed sets this year by Games Workshop, just last month the one-off Speed Freeks, the month before that the Rogue Trader expansion for Kill Team. But here it is, a massive dungeon crawler just before Christmas.

Blackstone, 3D-Prints and Birthdays

Let me sum up this week. I'm currently preparing the review on Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress. If you pre-order it, many stores will give you posters and a poker chip as a bonus. And I already gathered a couple of miniatures for the scale comparison shots. In case you have any wishes, what I should cover within the review, just let me know and I'll try to put it into the upcoming article.

Warhammer Koblenz First Store Anniversary

Games Workshop released an article on the updates on the store anniversaries on Warhammer Community and the local Warhammer Store here in Koblenz will have their Store Anniversary party next friday on November 16th.

It is kind of interesting to have an "actual" Warhammer store around the corner. I've seen the coverage of the events in the old White Dwarfs and some of the goodies or store exclusives pop-up on bring & buys or eBay (sometimes for ridiculous prices). And as the store is right around the corner from where I work, I can drop by and pick up some of these things. Just got the posters for Blackstone Fortress a couple of days ago.

One thing to understand is the slightly "odd" choosing of the date. There is a store opening party, I've covered that one on here as well, and then 3 months after that, the birthday party is held. So, a couple of items that were already available at the store opening, but would normally available not until the actual anniversary were these two, that will be up for sale again.

Inq28 – Sequitor Inquisitor conversion

This is a conversion based upon the Easy-to-Build sequitors, that I bought at the opening of the local Warhammer store.

The sequitors are an incredible good deal at 3 for 12 EUR, very characterful large miniatures. The sprues are pre-coloured in a bright gold. I seperated the pieces I need, from the Sequitor prime. She even comes with two different head options, one helmeted and the other one without but a very prominent undercut.

Warhammer 40,000 Speed Freeks

As part of Orktober, Games Workshop delivers a stand-alone boxed set of orkish racing - Speed Freeks! It was already announced back in August on Warhammer Fest Europe and there were rumours about a revival of Gorka Morka, so now we know what these were about.

Sci-Fi Soldiers with long coat

In July I covered the Bolt Action Winter German kit by Warlord Games and the possibilities within the game / setting it self, using it for conversions.

As the Bolt Action plastic range is 28mm heroic scale, a bit overdrawn, it can be used as a base for all kinds of longcoat troops. A brief comparison of the bodies next to the ones of bodies from the Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum range.
