January 28th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Once again it’s that time of the week for the FTN’s tabletop gaming news, slightly later than usual but better late than never. First up GW have the new Warriors of Chaos up for Advanced Order on the website for release on Saturday Feb 2nd. Below is from GW’s newsletter.

The Chaos Chariot and Gorebeast Chariot are variants of another impressive kit. One is drawn to battle by two horned Chaos steeds, while the other by a ferocious armoured Gorebeast. The kit gives you a jaw-dropping array of options, from the semi-circular guard to the charioteers – including the ability to convert one of the charioteers to a Chaos Lord on foot.Also available are the mighty Dragon Ogres. These strikingly fearsome miniatures are lizard-like and muscular, with thick gut plates, loin cloths, skulls and chains, as well as a choice of heads and weapons.
From the magic-swept lands of the frozen north march the Warriors of Chaos, an indomitable race of battle-hungry killers and mutant monsters who fight for glory and the favour of bloodthirsty gods…On Advance Order today are new Warriors of Chaos multi-part plastic kits and exceptionally detailed Citadel Finecast miniatures, as well as Warhammer Armies: Warriors of Chaos and a new Warhammer Battle Magic set. Leading the charge today is the Slaughterbrute / Mutalith Vortex Beast kit. The epitome of violence, these two hulking, muscular and ferocious variants are bedecked with Chaos icons and numerous fear-inducing details. In particular, the Mutalith Vortex Beast possesses a vortex of raw Chaos upon its back, making it a splendid centrepiece for any Warriors of Chaos collection.
Shambling into a Hobby Centre near you are the Forsaken, who show a vast array of mutations and otherworldly ‘gifts’, from boils and horns, to tentacles, spikes and even torsos erupting out of shoulders. The sheer variety of stomach churning options that this kit provides is utterly mind-boggling.Lastly in plastic is a new Chaos Lord, who is heroically posed in a full suit of Chaos armour, and ready to do some damage with a halberd. If that wasn’t enough, there are two new Citadel Finecast additions to the Warriors of Chaos range as well – inVilitch the Curseling, who has been gruesomely melded together with his brother, and Throgg, King of Trolls. Both of these would make excellent additions to a Warriors of Chaos collection.
To accompany the new releases is a brand new Army Book – Warhammer: Warriors of Chaos. This 96 page, full colour, hardback book contains rich background information, a full bestiary, an army list to arrange your collection of Citadel Miniatures into a battle-ready force, and a showcase of expertly painted Citadel miniatures. Those of you who wish to buy the digital edition can also pre-order the Army Book from the iBookstore right now.Finally, available for you to Advance Order is Warhammer Battle Magic: Warriors of Chaos. This set contains 22 large-format Battle Magic cards for the Lores of Tzeentch, Slaanesh and Nurgle, including six spells for each power, three signature spells and a Warpflame Special Rule card, for use in your games of Warhammer. Warhammer Battle Magic: Warriors of Chaos is available in strictly limited numbers – order now to avoid disappointment.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
