Fallout comes to Tabletop
A new tabletop miniatures war game has been announced by Modiphius Entertainment, based on the popular video game by Bethesda, Fallout, it is called Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. The news comes from a teaser image that was shared on Facebook over the weekend which showed iconic characters, from Fallout 4, kitted out in armour squaring off against super mutants.
The teaser also mentions miniatures that will feature with a size of 32mm and the game will include player-vs-player, co-operative and solo missions. No release date is mentioned so keep your eye out!
A new faction for the upcoming Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire has been announced by Games Workshop called Deathrattle Sepulchral Guard. It joins Bloodbound and Stormcast Eternals, previously announced, and they will add a more devious and dark strategic element to the game.
The miniatures look amazing in detail and concept which just intensifies the excitement for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire coming out at the end of 2017.
Bios: Genesis Second Edition
Sierra Madre Games have announced a second edition to their 2016 award winning game - Bios: Genesis. Bios: Genesis is 1 – 4 player game where players begin the game as primordial soup and try and develop into life through cards and tokens.
It is the first game in a series planned to lead up to 2018; Bio: Megafauna looking to be released later this year and Bios: Origins will complete the series in 2018. Bio: Genesis is up on Kickstarter right now!
Lastly today, we all know that Marvel's Avengers: Infinity Wars is in production and as the movie get closer and closer to the big screen, a lot of fans are wandering what will happen in it and also what about Avengers four? What is the title and what could Infinity Wars lead to?
Recently, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, came out and said that the studio would not announce the title for Avengers 4 as it would spoil Avengers: Infinity War. However, in an interview that Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy, had with BBC’s Lizo Mzimba, Saldana may have let slip the name of Avengers 4 – Infinity: Gauntlet.
This may not be considered as much of a spoiler but it does suggest what we could be install for in both movies, as this was up for much speculation beforehand. We could now be led to believe that Avengers: Infinity Wars will be about Thanos acquiring all the infinity stones and then Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet will be about The Avengers fighting to stop him from using it.
Marvel Studios haven’t yet made a statement around this supposed leaked information but all will be revealed soon enough.
