There was a bit of a glut of new games released towards the end of the week. Aside from Warhammer Conquest, there’re a few expansions coming out that I’m excited about!
The third Hero & Monster Collection for Descent has come out, Crusade of the Forgotten, which has a fantastic Golem miniature that looks really nice. I’m quite excited by them:
I only have the first, Oath of the Outcast, and have been meaning to get Crown of Destiny for a while, predominantly because of those Chaos Beasts! But anyhow…
The new version of DungeonQuest has also come out – not that I’m going to get it, given that I already have the thing, though the new rules are potentially worth trying out at some point.
The Sleeper Below and The Road Darkens have also been released, for Call of Cthulhu and Lord of the Rings respectively. Another preview has gone up for the upcoming expansion to Eldritch Horror, which is something I’m really looking forward to. That’ll be Christmas sorted, then! And on the subject of Lovecraftian awesomeness, the announcement about a new expansion for Elder Sign, which I featured here earlier in the week. Very much looking forward to this one, I must say!
In addition, there’s also been a look at the upcoming Forever Evil expansion for the DC deckbuilding game, which looks to be in a similar vein to Marvel Legendary’s Villains expansion.
I do quite like the DC game, anyway, though it does feel quite simple in comparison with other deckbuilders. I’m sure it’ll feature here at some point, anyway…
There’s also been an update on Fallen – apparently it’s all-systems-go once again, so I’m hoping I’ll get to see this game by Christmas once again – at laaaaaaaaaaaaaast!
It’s been another exciting weekend of Necron-building, with a squad of Deathmarks and Lychguards being made up.
Wonderful stuff, though I am faced with twelve models that need painting (I also made up a Necron Overlord). Well, that’ll be an adventure for another day!
So the Games Workshop site is once again Dark Eldar-crazy this weekend, as the Codex came out yesterday. More kits have been announced to supplement this, along with a Codex supplement (already!)…
Now, as you might know, I’m not a Warhammer player, yet, but I’m intending to remedy that soon. When I do, I’m intending to play Necrons, because I think they look amazing, and to that end I have been amassing a sizable force!
However, while my heart belongs to the Necrons, the Dark Eldar do still have a pull for me, primarily the wonderfully gothic Wracks, a kit of which I bought upon release. While I don’t think I’m going to go down the route of getting the Codex, I am planning on getting this new Haemonculus Covens book, as I’m thinking that, as I get more involved in the game, I may start using Dark Eldar as allies for my Necrons, and to that extent will be fielding a Wrack squad, potentially with Urien Rakarth involved somehow, as well!
The new Archon and Succubus models look really cool, I must say. It seems Dark Eldar models have a really awesome dynamic to them, and I have been tempted quite a lot to get some of the other unique characters and stuff. I’m not currently looking to build up a Dark Eldar army, though, so I really ought to save my money!
I doubt it will, of course, but I hope that the Necrons get a similar love when their new Codex comes out…
I do feel like I’ve, well, not over-done it as such, but like I’ve spent too long with Warhammer 40k lately, and need a bit of a break. So I think some boardgames will be on the menu (though they might still be Warhammer-themed, of course!) – variety is the spice of life, I guess!
