Space Hulk: Deathwing Teaser Trailer

Holy fucking shit!

I couldn’t care less what this game is about – this trailer looks immense. And finally gives tell to why Dark Angels were the first army I properly collected as a young hobbyist.

However, I’ve been a good boy and looked into it and oh my poor pants. Space Hulk: Deathwing will be a first person shooter available on the XBox One.

I’ll be watching this one very closely because it has the potential to be incredible. Or a miserable pile of shit like all the other Space Hulk shooters that have preceded it.

The Lord Inquisitor Grey Knights Teaser

The Lord Inquisitor has been in development for a loooooooooong time. Mainly because Games Workshop agreed to let the fan based project live but only with Aaron Demski-Bowden writing the script. So having thrown out the old script so it went back to a blank piece of paper.

So here’s the new trailer with no odd artefact and shaky voice over.

Halo 2: Anniversary WIP Gameplay

And no sooner have I seen, drooled over, and shared with you the announcement trailer of The Master Chief Collection does a video hit the interwebs of work in progress gameplay footage of Halo 2: Anniversary.

I reported on this as a possibility for the 360 quite some time ago and it’s great to see that it wasn’t without foundation, albeit as a collection on the XBox One. It does look a little bit XBox 360 but it is in development and it’s the updating of a 10-year-old game from two consoles ago so it can be forgiven. For me the biggest problem was the shaky story which was supposed to be the Empire Strikes Back of the story but never quite delivered. Here’s hoping the re-release will be up to snuff…

Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Ever since Halo 5 was announced for the XBox One, rumors have been abound that an emulator would be made available so the previous Halo games could be played on the next-gen console. It looks like this was halfway to the truth. Revitalised versions of Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 will be made available to buy as Halo: The Master Chief Collection. There’s already been grumbles that Halo: ODST and Halo: Reach won’t be included but seeing as the Master Chief isn’t in those games, as great as they are, it would seem a bit daft. Plus it’s churlish to ask for Mars when you’ve been given the Earth. And four games for £50 is pretty tidy.

This is all adding up to one inescapable truth…I’m saving up for an XBox One as of now. It was always going to happen: I wanted an XBox One anyway but throw in Halo 5, Batman: Arkham Knight and now The Master Chief Collection and I’m about to be very poor for a very long time.

Anyway, enjoy the trailer. For the die hards out there this is a very familiar scene remastered beautifully.

Forge World Preivews Word Bearers Gal Vorbak

The latest Forge World bulletin didn’t have much in the way of news I care about…until I got to this shot. The Gal Vorbak have always interested me intensely when reading the Horus Heresy novels featuring the Bearers of the Word. And, by extension, I’d always hoped they’d do models and hoped further still that they’d do them justice as I’ve never been a fan of the possessed models available for Chaos Space Marines.

GalVorbakJudging by these two gems I think they’re in safe hands. I love how the MKIV armour has been incorporated into the mutations. The reversed jointed lugs are inspired. It all likes like the changes would have been agonising, which they were. I’m finding my eye wandering towards Codex Chaos Space Marines…

 

Warhammer 40,000 7th Edition Teaser?

The below has hit the interwebs. Whilst vaguer than normal it coincides with news that rules and starter sets have been pulled from the Games Workshop website and stores. So it could mean that Warhammer 40,000 7th edition is about to hit.

There’s been plenty of rumours about the boxset contents. Blood Angels and Orks seemed to have been one that stuck around, but as always we’ll wait and see rather than guess. And we won’t have to wait for long. Time to reallocate the monthly budget methinks…

New Wood Elves White Dwarf Leaks

The internets are aglow with many wonderful pictures of the new Wood Elf releases due out in May.

I don’t think it’s too early to say that Games Workshop have absolutely nailed this one on. The Treemen alone are enough to make me consider picking some Wood Elves up!
