Warhammer Wednesday – Signing OffMarch 27, 2019
+++Sector T-T Test+++
It is with great sadness I write my final article for Table-Top Test. Sharing my incoherent ramblings with you all has been an absolute delight. Alas it now comes to the end. I trust you will all join me in saluting Dan for the work he has put in bringing together the Table-Top Test team and trying to make a diverse environment of folk writing about games. With all my heart I wish him the greatest of success in his future endeavours.
As for me? I will continue inflicting my wargaming blog http://sisterofshouting.blogspot.com/ upon the internet. I’ll probably update more often as my best material is no longer reserved for this site. The articles published here will eventually make their way over to the blog too. Maybe I’ll carry on writing gaming news and opinion pieces elsewhere? Maybe I’ll finally write that RPG I’ve been failing to work on for the last decade? Maybe I’ll one day manage to defeat my daughter at a game of AoS? Maybe this paragraph was leading somewhere?
+++The Future for Games Workshop+++
Keep your eyes peeled. Games Workshop has got some absolutely stonking content lined up this year. The forces of chaos have arisen once more in the 41st Millennium and the Mortal Realms; bringing with them a Baroque style loved by many. The Sisters of Battle will be making planetfall towards the end of the year. I can’t wait, there will still be a few problematic elements of the Sororitas but gosh it will be good to see them return.
Kill Team continues to expand with Elites coming up. This will allow you to add all sorts of bigger and bolder models to your teams; even the Custodes are getting stuck in. Meanwhile Age of Sigmar will be seeing its own skirmish type game showcasing battle across the chaos wastes. I’m still reserving judgement on this one but… I dunno. Certainly Shadespire has proven popular and introduce some stunning new sculpts to the model range. In particular Shadespire has been a testing ground for increased female representation and more people of colour in the painted models.
The Games Workshop Funko pops (designed by fan favourite Sarah Kaiser) will hit the stores soon. Grab yours whilst they are available if it’s your thing. I anticipate high demand for conversions and re-painting purposes. There are also some other things like boardgames and Age of Sigmar Munchkin (oh gods no, whhhhyyyyy????) that may appeal to folk who, erm, find those things appealing?
Let me finish with a quick ‘Which famous Warhammer 40,000 character are you?’ quiz…
