Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago – Tribals

After covering the Crewmen, the next Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago kit are the tribals we're going to cover. Besides the very obvious temperatures and climate as a difference, in Ghost Archipelago the crew follows a heritor instead of a wizard, and these tribals can be used either as allies or enemies of those treasure seekers.

The tribals are a generic plastic kit, catching the idea of tribes, native to the jungles of the Lost Isles and isolated from the known world. They are heavily influenced by different cultures from our world, like the Polynesian Samoans or Maori, with some North American and African influences as well.

Adeptus Titanicus – Mechanicum Questoris Knights Styrix and Magaera

Towards the end of the year we see a new release of Mechanicum Knights by Forge World. Along the regular Questoris Knights (and later upgraded kit) two new classes enter the epic sized battlefield of the Horus Heresy - the Questoris Knights Styrix and Questoris Knights Magaera.

These being Forge World releases, this means a few differences towards the regular Adeptus Titanicus range. Most present is the direct only availability, as Forge World is only sold through Forge World themself or at Games Workshop events (and at Warhammer World). But they overhauled their shipping costs, making availability through their online shop quite a bit more affordable. And the second difference compared to Games Workshops main range they are cast from resin and not injection mould plastic or finecast. But more on that further below.

Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar Death & Destruction

This summer I've covered the Warhammer Age of Sigmar variant of Munchkin, and now we have the first supplement that was released in both English and German - Death & Destruction, introducing the Flesheater Court and Ironjaws to the game. The English version of the game is released by Steve Jackson Games with the localised version available through Pegasus Spiele.

Necromunda – Zone Mortalis Platforms and Stairs

To finalize the review series on the Zone Mortalis, after covering the Columns and Walls as well as the Gang Stronghold, we look closer into the accessoires set - Platforms and Stairs.

Necromunda - Zone Mortalis Platforms and Stairs

With spicy price tag of 50 EUR it is important to know what it brings to the table, literally. We have two different sprues, each two times included in this set. It is important to note, that this is barely a stand-alone and it requires at least the Columns and Walls kit to make the most out of it.

Necromunda – Zone Mortalis Gang Stronghold

The most recent addition to the Zone Mortalis, is the Necromunda Gang Stronghold. Quite the boxed set for the Underhive, giving your gang a spot to hide out, defend and retreat to.

But this is not just a repurposed set of sprues from the Zone Mortalis, but a whole new set of sprues and parts to add to your Zone Mortalis. And not just walls and platforms either at 70 EUR, but two towers (a lookout tower and a water tank) as well.

Necromunda – Zone Mortalis Columns and Walls

While a lot of attention goes towards the new Blood Bowl release, I set up the coverage on the Zone Mortalis terrain range, introduced to support the Necromunda skirmish game.

There were two plastic kits introduced in the beginning, that replaced the massive resin tiles of the same name by Forge World from 2003, the Columns and Walls and the floor tile sets.

For the 9th edition Games Workshop released a new series of starter sets, covering two forces and terrain in different tiers. You can choose for example the Command Edition or just the Battlezone terrain from that boxed set, or if you want to go all-in, the large Battlezone: Manufactorum - Vertigus boxed set that we're going to take a closer look into today.

This is the first italian plastic tank kit for Bolt Action, so far they only had access to resin kits and among those primarely tankettes. With this kit, the player is able to field either a Carro Armato M13/40, M14/41 or Semovente da 75/18.
