Assassinorum: Execution Force

Apr25 - 1Next Saturday we will have the new Limited Edition Warhammer 40K Miniature Board Game Assassinorum: Execution Force! This is a similar situation to Space Hulk from a while back, it will be a limited run, and we will likely never get more again – so this is a first come first serve situation.

The game goes for $149.99 CAD, but if you pre-order it by Wednesday, April 29 you will save 10%!

Assassinorum: Execution Force comes with four amazing sculpts for the classic Assassins. They join forces to hunt down and assassinate the Chaos Lord who is protected by cultists and Chaos Marines. The game features all new game mechanics – but of course all the minis are available to use in your normal Warhammer 40,000 games.

If you are interested in using the assassins in 40K games be sure to grab this week’s White Dwarf, which include rules for them!

Once again, this is a limited run, and we’re not getting a ton, so pre-order yours now while you can!
Apr25 - 2 Apr25 - 3 Apr25 - 4 Apr25 - 5

Jay’s Big Bet: Terrain Sets

A couple of months ago I initiated the first Jay’s Big Bet to finally get myself over the hump, and finish our Infinity Table.  At the time I bet the Infinity players of Black Knight Games that I could get the table completely finished by April, or I would have to give everyone a discount on Infinity for the month.  I am proud to say that I was victorious!  The table is complete, and our local players have been enjoying what is now a real centerpiece table.

Since I felt that the bet really did help me to stay motivated, I am doing it again.  This time my goal is not a single massive table, rather a series of matching sets of terrain.  I would very much like to begin getting our available terrain to a place where we have amazing premium tables like the Infinity one, as well as high quality matching scenery for the rest of the tables – rather than the hodge-podge mix of stuff we have now.

So to that end here is my next Big Bet!:

I must complete three new sets of terrain, one each month, for the next three months (including this one).  A set of terrain does not necessarily include a table, rather it is a set of terrain pieces that go together, and would make for enough terrain for one table.  The sets will be thematic in some way, which should add some nice variation to the every-day terrain we already have.  Each set must be done by the end of the month.

If I fail to complete a new set of terrain on any given month I will buy a fully painted set of terrain instead.

Either way our gamers get more nice scenery, so it’s Win-Win!  So let me know what you think, and let me know if you have any great ideas for future bets, or for the terrain I should make now!
