Now, our fine compadres at PCGamesN have invited me to share some of our stories on the biggest tabletop goings-on from the past month, and, gee whillikers, it’s been a busy one. Here’s a little whistle-stop tour through the biggest news from April, across the diverse lands of miniatures games, tabletop roleplaying games, board and card games, and PC strategy gaming.
What do you mean, you haven’t heard of Wargamer? Preposterous. OK, a brief refresher: we’ve been around for ages – since 1995 in fact – covering hardcore digital and tabletop wargames, but we relaunched the website in January, with a snazzy new look and a big new mission: to become the world’s biggest and best tabletop games website. And we’ve got off to a cracking start – so if you love Warhammer, Magic: The Gathering, D&D, board games, or pretty much any game played on a horizontal surface, then bookmark us immediately (that’s an order).
Suggestion For You:
Beginning, as one must, with Games Workshop: Warhammer Age of Sigmar got two new massive, centrepiece models in April: the daemon prince Be’Lakor, which shipped out this month, and the reveal of a new model for the magnificent, floaty toad wizard, Lord Kroak – which sadly has no confirmed release date just yet. We also finally got a full-fledged starter set for Warhammer Underworlds, along with several other gorgeous newly unveiled miniatures we hope to see more of in May.
Just a short hop, skip, and a jump across Nottingham from GW towers, we find Warlord Games – whose 28mm WWII miniatures game Bolt Action got a brand new Pacific theatre starter set this month, complete with Japanese troops with lunge mines, and a Chi-Ha tank.
And, in the superhero minis department, Marvel United: X-Men dropped on Kickstarter midway through the month, raising a mutation-inducing amount of money in pledges for the new starter set, which features cartoon-flavoured miniatures for Wolverine, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Beast, and Professor X (with Sabretooth and Juggernaut thrown in for the baddies).
