Games Workshop New and Exclusive Updates

Check out Games Workshop’s latest and greatest releases right here.



Games Workshop has been hard at work over the holidays and has a bunch of fun new expansions, minis and games for us to try out. Today, we’re going to focus on some new arrivals on the Warhammer 40k scene and also give a shout out to Blood Bowl’s newest Dungeon themed game.

Drukhari Realspace Raiders 

I started playing the Dark Eldar….cough…Drukhari back in the early 2000’s and at the time, they were undergoing some growing pains. One of their main abilities, the deep strike had started being banned in tournies due to it’s somewhat broken nature. They were frail, fast and did I mention frail? Over the past few years, this faction has become a mainstay at the top of tournament boards.

The Realspace Raiders kit gives you some essential pieces to creating your own, strike fast and get out style army. This bundle includes:

  • 1x Combat Patrol: Drukhari, which contains the following units:
  • 1x Archon
  • 10x Kabalite Warriors
  • 5x Incubi
  • 1x Ravager
  • 1x Raider

In addition, the kit gives you a Razorwing Jetfighter and a Drazhar, Master of Blades. This kit gives you lots of speed and a truly beefy menace in the form of Drazhar.

Tau: Big Freaking Rail Gun

For years, the Tau have sort of flip flopped between being borderline broken and just terrible. There was a time when Tau ran the table by jumping, shooting, then landing behind cover again…this was called, someone boringly, the “jump shoot” era. Since then, Tau have been nerfed in some areas and buffed in others. Well, here’s a new buff for you…..enter the Rail Gun: the newest Hammerhead Tank variant.

While all the details aren’t out yet, this gun is going to be a force to be reckoned with. Damage output from the Tau Railgun has the capacity to annihilate just about anything in a single shot, while also being able to fire short range, fragmentation rounds that get better when shot into larger crowds. While this is likely to be a high point cost addition to a Tau army, it looks worth it to us!

Bawla and Burk, Boss Rat-Killas (available until January 9th)

If limited edition is a term that gets your engine revved, and you also happen to love Orruks, Games Workshop has a special something just for you! Bawla and Burk, Boss Rat-Killas are the legendary, Skaven slaying duo who love nothing more than to chop some rats up into tiny bits.

Bawla and Burk, a Brute Boss and his grot attendant, may be constructed with this set. There are no construction alternatives, but if you want to give the rat a rest, you may opt to have him chased off by Bawla. You may use Bawla and Burk as a characterful alternative to a Brute Boss in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar if you like.

Battleforce: Soulblight Gravelords – Revenant Legion

The Soulblight Gravelords are powerful undead monsters that are afflicted by a terrible curse and permanently hunger for blood. These rulers of Shyish, who command legions of undead subjects and terrible creatures in the name of their creator, Nagash, use whatever means available to dominate the Mortal Realms and bring their prey into line.

The Soulblight Gravelords wage a bloody and interminable war against hordes of undead slaves, as well as mediocre lesser-vampires. Each dynasty takes on a slightly different fight style, suited to the morbid commander’s tastes.

The Revenant Legion is led by a vicious Vengorian Lord and a group of noble Blood Knights, who charge into the enemy ranks with their charges of bone-crushing bones.

Included in the set:

1x Vengorian Lord (can also be built as Lauka Vai, Mother of Nightmares)
5x Blood Knights
20x Deathrattle Skeletons
40x Deadwalker Zombies

Dungeon Bowl: The Game of Subterranean Blood Bowl Mayhem

If you’re looking for the same rock em, sock em, strategy of Blood Bowl but with a fresh coat of blood…I mean paint, then here’s a game for you to check out. Dungeon Bowl is an all in one kit, meaning that once you’ve assembled and painted your minis, you’re good to just set up and play. In Dungeon Bowl, you’re still trying to collect the ball and score touchdowns, but now you’ll need to avoid traps while leaping through portals and ransacking treasure chests. And because the playing field is made of various tiles, you can customize your game each time you play!

The game comes with two starting teams (there are 8 teams in total) which are represented by various colleges of magic. This set includes the heavy hitting College of Fire which features Ogres, Dwarves and Trolls. On the opposite side, you’ll get the fast and nimble College of Shadows team complete with skittering Skaven and fleetfooted Elves. If you’re new to Blood Bowl and Dungeon Bowl, you can try the video game version which is offered on Steam for around $12.

Lastly, the rulebook includes full team rosters for each of the eight teams featured in the game so feel free to grab some stand-in, proxy minis and play a round using any of the available colleges!
