Warhammer Fest 2021 Day 6 - Hunt the Enemies of Sigmar

8th May 2021

There were so many options for what today's reveals could be. Could it be Age of Sigmar v3.0? Could we get to see some more of The Old World? Or, could the Thunderhawk Gunship in Adeptus Imperialis be a bluff, and we actually get to see a full-sized one today? I also pondered whether they'd announce something like Hasbro Pulse, where they announce big projects to gage interest, and it's only produced if enough people commit to buying it. Through that we've seen releases such as a new HeroQuest (I'll review this when it's out), and Jabba's Sail Barge. Could something like this work for Games…

Warhammer Fest 2021 Day 5 - Warhammer 40,000

7th May 2021

During the lead-up to Warhammer Fest we saw a number of graphics hinting at what we'd get to see during this week. So, as long as these hints continued to be accurate then it meant for tonight's Warhammer 40,000 reveal night we'd be seeing some Orks. The closer the time got, the less subtle their hints got! Waaarghh! So, the night started off with an Ork-y video introducing the beast snaggas.

We saw a couple riding squigs and a couple of the other models back in April, but now we got to see the new savage army for starters. From the sounds of it there may be new additions in the near…

Warhammer Fest 2021 Day 4 - Boxed Games

6th May 2021

For the first two days of Warhammer Fest we got the vampires we expected, and then got the new Sisters that were expected. Both of them had been teased during the lead-up through the advertising material that had been on social media. One of the other pieces said 'No Goliaths' so it seemed obvious that today would feature at least some Necromunda. From the roadmap we've seen previously we knew Q2 would be House of Faith, and we saw a preview of that before, and Q3 will be House of Shadows leaving Q4 as a mystery…

Warhammer Fest 2021 Day 3 - Black Library

5th May 2021

Today it's time to delve into the dark corridors of the Black Library to see what new stories will be told. This being the Black Library you'd expect this to be about books, and it was, mostly, but we also got to see some new miniatures. One of the most exciting announcements of the night for me was Gaunt's Ghosts - a new Astra Militarum squad based on the characters from Dan Abnett's longest running series, starting with First and Only. I think this will be great alongside other recent Astra Militarum releases such as Sgt. Ripper. This might just be the reveal of the…

Warhammer Fest 2021 Day 2 - Warhammer 40,000

4th May 2021

For the second day of Warhammer Fest, the focus shifted to the grimdark future of Warhammer 40,000. After some great miniature reveals last night, they kicked off today's festivities with the narrative side with a return to the Warzone Charadon where more factions have joined the fray for Act II: The Book of Fire. Be'lakor being one of the biggest name-drops who will also have a full datasheet in this book. It looks like this will have a big focus on the forces of Chaos and how they will play within the confines of this campaign.

Warhammer Fest 2021 Day 1 - Age of Sigmar

3rd May 2021

Today is the start of Warhammer Fest 2021, the first time it's been virtual due to COVID restrictions on gatherings and events. To kick off the week-long Warhammer celebrations, they've started with Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. It all kicked off with the revelation of the 'Conquerors of Undeath' miniatures - the remainder of the Soulblight forces we hadn't yet seen. We've been expecting more vampires since the most recent releases and reveals, and sure enough, Games Workshop have delivered. Death has never looked so good.

Conquerors of Undeath features loads of new characters such as Belladama…
