The first month of 2017 is shaping up to be a great one for new releases in the gaming world. From the Wizards of the Coast’s new Magic: the Gathering release, Aether Revolt, to Games Workshop’s Triumvurate of the Imperium model set and The Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia, there is a ton available and on the horizon. And, as always, ask about how you can receive 10% off an order of a new item with us!
While Arena Rex may not be a brand new release, per se, we would be foolish not to spotlight this amazing game here. In the past month, Arena Rex has quickly become the hottest new addition to the store. We are currently stocking all of the amazing models the game has to offer, from the spectacularly detailed Hroka to the gruesome Wendigo. If you’re interested in a fast-paced, well balanced, skirmish-based miniatures game, Arena Rex is probably for you. Contact us via Facebook to schedule a demo or place an order for a model.
This month’s huge release from our friends at Games Workshop is a huge smattering of models and supplements. For the first time in ages, we are getting new Sisters of Battle models, this time in plastic. The newly sculpted models in this release are Inquisitor Greyfax; Belisarius Cawl; and Celestine, the Living Saint.
The new Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia, as told by Games Workshop, “is the first book in the Gathering Storm series. A 136-page hardback, it introduces the Triumvirate of the Imperium – Celestine, the Living Saint, Tech-priest of Mars Archmagos Dominus Belisarius Cawl, and Inquisitor Katarinya Greyfax of the Ordo Hereticus – and chronicles the bitter battle to protect Cadia from the grasp of Abaddon the Despoiler.”
And, finally, the Empyric Storm Cards introduce new ways to play with Warp storms, through the story details of Fall of Cadia.
If Sisters aren’t really your thing, we’re also proudly stocking the new edition of Space Hulk, Traitor Legions codex supplement, and Start Collecting! Death Watch.
These new releases are guaranteed to go quickly, so stop by as soon as you can to grab what you need for your army!
Magic: the Gathering
Aether Revolt, the newest set from Wizard of the Coast’s Magic: the Gathering has been nothing but exciting since preview season started a few weeks ago, and we’re still very excited about this set here at Battlegrounds. New mechanics, such as Revolt and Improvise, are set to make a huge impact on the game in all formats, from Standard to Modern to Commander.
Booster Boxes, Bundles, and Planeswalker Decks are available for this set starting January 20th at 12:00AM. Booster Boxes are $120, Bundles are $40, and Planeswalker Decks are $15. In addition, we will have single cards available while supplies last.
January also marks the release of a new board game for us!
Dreamwell, a game crowdfunded via Kickstarter, is the latest game to climb onto our shelves here at Battlegrounds. The game supports 2-4 players who compete against each other to locate their friends in the world of the Dreamwell. The game is quick, taking about 30 minutes, and features some of the best artwork we’ve seen so far this winter.
On the Horizon…
