Along with a few Warhammer 40,000 Funko Pops (due April-May), Games Workshop had on display at the company’s Toy Fair booth prototype mock-ups of three more entries in its series of introductory board games. These are expected to hit retail in the 4th quarter.


Combat Arena ($40) is a prequel to Warhammer Quest Blackstone Fortress and is similar in complexity to this past year’s intro game, Space Marine Adventures. This one is a dueling game representing a training scenario for one to four characters (one for each player but a total of five are included). Eventually, rules will be provided for integrating Combat Arena characters in to Blackstone Fortress.

Storm Vault ($45) is a cooperative adventure game in the Age of Sigmar for up to five players. The goal is to find the three keys required to unlock the vault. Every location on the board has a corresponding card, face down along the edge. When a hero stops in a location, the player flips the card, revealing either a key or some other possible benefit. Every turn, the players will also draw chaos cards, spreading foes around the board. Chaos foes are represented by cardboard tokens but for heroes there are Age of Sigmar minis, each with its unique special abilities.

Warhammer Underworlds Dreadfane ($50) is a trimmed down but compatible version of Underworlds. It has predefined objectives and no magic.

Games Workshop Misses First Day of Gen Con

gamesworkshoplogo.jpgSo, if you’re at Gen Con and were passing by the Games Workshop booth (772) on Thursday, you may have had some questions. Such as why there’s nothing from Games Workshop for sale at their booth, why it’s staffed by the people at Forge World instead of GW, or why you had to go to the other end of the hall to Forge World’s booth (3033) to make any GW purchases.

Reports of all Games Workshop staff denied entry to the United States and deported back to the United Kingdom are a bit exaggerated, said the UK-based Games Workshop employee Purple Pawn spoke to at the booth yesterday. Although some employees from GW’s headquarters did not gain entrance to the United States, some did as did all the product they brought over. Games Workshop products are for sale at the Forge World booth. The majority of the (admittedly small) GW booth is taken up by an Age of Sigmar diaorama.

“Someone at head office messed up the visa application,” writes the GW-fan site Faeit 212. “Rather than travelling on a Business Visitor Visa they travelled to the US on a [non-Working] Visa.” Apparently, one of the UK employees mentioned that the were going to be working at a convention, which is prohibited under the visas they were travelling with.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar

White Dwarf Warhammer Age of SigmarWith tomorrow’s issue #75 of White Dwarf, Games Workshop launches Warhammer Fantasy in to the Age of Sigmar.

An age of eternal warfare where epic armies clash across unimaginably vast realms.

The new era means new rules and a brand new army, the Stormcast Eternals, as well as a new approach for GW. All the rules for Age of Sigmar will be covered in a 4 page pull-out. Warscroll Compendiums, guides that provide backward compatibility for all existing Citadel miniatures, will be available to download for free from the GW web store.

For the new Stormcast Eternals army there will be a $125 starter set that includes a total of 47 miniatures (18 Stormcast Eternals), dice, range rulers, and a background book. In fact, each copy of that White Dwarf will have a free Stormcast Eternals figure attached to the front cover.
