UK Games Day 2013: Golden Demon Winners

It takes a lot of skill to win one of these. The rest of us just have to look on in awe. Here are the Bronze and Silver entries for 40k Single Miniature. Unfortunately due to camera burn and blurring I can’t post a good picture of the Gold winning entry.

Feel free to link to any of these images in order to use them on your own site. Although I hope there will be better ones out there.

News: FaQ updates for flyers, inc Space Marine Storm Raven

10112012080Games Workshop have released FaQ updates for most codex’s and the main rule set this weekend.

Codex’s updated: Blood Angels, Dark Eldar, Grey Knights, Imperial Guard, Necrons, Orks, Space Marines.

Not only does this confirm access to the Storm Raven for the Ultramarines, but updates the flyer rules across 6th edition.

News: New 40k Flyer Compendium – Death From The Skys

 It’s officially here, in an almost surprising, but completely unheard of move. Games workshop have dropped a new compendium and a stack of flyer bundles on to the website for direct order only.

Most of the bundles consist of sets of 2 or 3 flyers for each race, these bundles cost between £55 and £90 GBP each. The Space marines get an extra bundle with a Storm Raven Dreadnought and Tactical Squad for £101. Imperial Guard only get one bundle consisting of 2 Valkyries and 2 Storm Trooper squads priced at £133.

The GW website states there are “new bestiary and army list entries for the following codexes: Black Templars, Blood Angels, Dark Eldar, Grey Knights, Imperial Guard, Necrons, Orks and Space Marines”

For now we can only wonder what the changes will be for the codex’s which already have the units listed, such as the Storm Raven in the Grey Knights codex, storm talons perhaps?

Death from the skys is only available in English. Death from the skys is not limited edition.

Let the dakka dakka continue.

Rumours: Death from the Skies (flyers expansion in February)


Ben is still on rumour strike. It’s been more than a week since the rumours section has been updated. I don’t think this one can be ignored though. So I’m going to force you to read it. No I am, open your eyes and read! ok I’ll stop writing this dross and get on with it.


Could we really be on the verge of the summer of flyers before the winter is done?

from Kroothawk posted on Faeit

“A new 40k supplement book will be released on 16th February:
“Death from the Skies” (26€, mail order only, chance of being in English only).
More when I know more. But it certainly sounds like a flyer supplement.” 

Ben had predicted through patten we would see a Dark Angel campaign book at this point? Death from the skys. You could take that either way, still there are other rumours indicating this if for flyers though.

from DarkWarrior1981 on Warseer

“This is not as exciting as people may think. I saw the advert for the book at a local store; It contains only rules for fliers still on sale or with a codex entry (the Dark Eldar bomber is in), some fliers have their rules updated to 6th edition (whatever this means exactly). The only thing actually new is, that the Stormraven is now available to Codex Space Marines and Black Templars as well. Also you will find the flier rules from Crusade of Fire and new missions. The book will be on sale (no pre-order) from 16th of February, is direct only (so not from your FLGS), english language only and will not be limited stock.”

The shocking news (if true) is that the Strom Raven is going to be available to Codex marines and Black Templers. So it’s only Space Wolves that are forced to look to Forge world for a flyer (Dark Angels if they want a flying transport). Does this indicates the wolves may have something else in development??? or just are not imbracing the new technology in keep with their background. Is the Codex Storm Raven more shocking than the lack of new flyers in this supplement  nar prephaps that does take the carrot. Ok there may be a new Dark Eldar Bomber. So one book for one flyer??? I also wonder what 6th edition updated rules look like, Hull points???

If you are not a Dark Eldar player, you might have stopped reading by now, but don’t discard this as an meaningless release. The one sure good thing about this, is that your not going to need to take what is probably a very tatty looking White Dwarf along to games. I for one also have faith in the boys at the studio to put out a fantastic book full of lovely pictures and warm and fuzzy background.
