Codex: Craftworlds

It’s official – the next codex for Warhammer 40,000 (and the first xenos codex of the new edition!) is Codex: Craftworlds!

Start Collecting: Craftworld box is coming out as well.

There are also some new dice on the way that are perfect for Craftworlds fans. There’s a grand total of 6 sets(!) for you to choose from, each representing a different Aspect Shrine.

If you’re looking for a leader for your Craftworlds army, you’ll be happy to hear that Eldrad Ulthran – first seen in plastic in the Death Masque set – will be available to pre-order separately next week.

For one week only, starting Saturday next week, the latest wave of Made to Order models will give you your chance to get your hands on some rare and out of production Craftworlds miniatures. There are Farseers, Exarchs, and, most excitingly, the much-coveted Bonesinger and the classic Rogue Trader Farseer (who looks pretty great for 28 years old!). While you’re waiting for this Craftworlds celebration to land on store shelves, it’s a great time to catch up on some topical reading, and we can’t recommend Gav Thorpe’s Eldar Path Trilogy and the classic Bill King novel, ‘Farseer’, enough.

Craftworlds: Codex: 40$ reserve your copy now in store, so come and get them if you want a copy.

Did You Know? We Have a PC Gaming Community! Two of Them!

If you’re looking for PvP oriented group that values organization and teamwork, then check out the Silver Sun Republic.
A community for current and former US Military; miss the camaraderie you enjoyed while serving or if you’re still serving then this is the place for you.

If you’re a gamer like me then you probably don’t limit yourself to just one platform, genre or form of gaming and love everything from tabletop to card games and video games. Military Gamer Supply was built with all gamers of all walks of life in mind and that includes the Console and PC Gaming crowd!

As we work on rolling out our LAN and E-Sport setup over the next year we want to let you get in on the action right away with two gaming communities that we’ve supported for years before MGS was ever a thing; you might even notice the connection between MilitaryGamers.com and what we ended up naming our own store. If you’re a competitive gamer or see yourself as more of a casual player then we’ve got you covered in both communities.

Silver Sun Republic was founded by me, Jeremiah, Tyler and a few others many years ago.  It’s actually going on 15 years or so ever since the Everquest 1 and Ultima Online days and has appeared in many different MMOs since then covering mostly strategy and open PvP conquest sandbox games where we’ve been the core of many different alliances and groups that have dominated servers with the rest of the population rising up to knock us off the top. We’ve done it many different games to include Planetside 1 and 2, Age of Conan, Shadowbane, EVE Online and most famously, Darkfall Online as part of the Kingdom of Hyperion where we conquered 2/3rds of the entire map with the Goons of Something Awful having to literally bribe people with real money to take us down. Now we’re gearing up for Life is Feudal, which is a medieval conquest MMO complete with castle building, siege mechanics, twitch combat and a crafting system with more depth than most of us ever imagined. We host our own servers for games like ARMA III, Life is Feudal: Your Own, GTA: San Andreas Multiplayer, Morrowind Multiplayer Mod and a whole lot more.

You can check out Silver Sun Republic by visiting http://www.silversunrepublic.com.

Are you current or former military? Do you want to join a community made up of other current and former military members?  MilitaryGamers.com is your best choice.  A lot of other communities have popped up making the same claim, but MG is the ONLY community that boasts a roster of over 3,200 registrations, 99.5% of which are all military members with the small percentage made up of dependents and longtime gaming buddies. The community provides a close knit support network that has provided several “saves” for service members who are struggling with service connected injuries. If you’re looking for the same level of camaraderie that you associate with your military service, then make sure you check out MilitaryGamers.com today.

24 Hours of Gaming for Military Families – 4 Nov 2017

We’re gaming for the military families, for the kids who already have it rough with Mom or Dad (and sometimes both!) away from home serving their country.  We’ve touched several family’s lives providing gaming consoles, games and other cool stuff to let them know that we appreciate their sacrifice as part of the military community.

The resiliency of our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen serving overseas starts and ends at home and to take care of their kids is to take care of them as well.  We game for our military families!

We’ll be livestreaming on our Twitch.tv channel as well as Facebook from time to time with updates on our progress and the battle against sleep.  You can join our team or donate by checking out our Extra-Life.org page.

You can get in on the action and stay on top of what’s going on by visiting our Google Calendar entry for that day, 4 Nov 2017.

Or if you prefer the Facebook way of tracking your events, check out our Facebook Event and stay up to date that way.

Help Us Design the Gaming Hardware of the Future

We’re part of an AMAZING opportunity to have direct input on a brand new line of gaming hardware that will be produced by a new up and coming company.  They want to hear from you on what makes a great keyboard, mouse and headset.  We’re helping them gather data and you can have a direct line to the design team by filling out this simple survey.

This is a first run survey that is meant to gather some initial feedback, but there will be more follow up surveys that allow you to get as detailed as you want in what your dream gaming peripherals would look like.  They already have hardware in development for things like power and USB cables as well as routers with many more lines rolling out all the time.

We should have some demo products available to you shortly on their existing hardware lines and soon you’ll be able to purchase them right from our brick and mortar shop and the online store.  We’re excited for this new partnership and we hope you join us in providing feedback to produce the best, next generation of gaming hardware.

Get Discord, Get MGS Events in Your Phone, Get Good

We already know how awesome you are and that’s why we always love seeing you in the store.  Sometimes life can get crazy with all the social media apps, updates, reminders, blah, blah, blah.  We know you’re riding the struggle bus that life throws at all of us, but don’t worry, we’re here for you!  That’s why we’re putting together an awesome orchestra of Discord goodness that will give you a fully integrated option to get updates on events in the same place where you can text and talk with other members of the community.  Rather than throw another brick into the wall of life, we’re working to make it easier for you to connect with fellow MGS gamers and arrange for matches or get the latest on Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering or whatever other organized play we’ve got going on.

That’s where Discord comes in and we’ve connected our Google Calendar to it in order to provide you a weekly outlook so you know what you have to look forward to at the end of the work day or on the weekends.  We’re with you every step of the way with events going on every week night because sometimes working for the weekend just doesn’t cut it.

Not only do we bring you events, but we have channels specific to your favorite games.  On top of that we also provide automatic reminders and links to our livestreams when we have them going.  Shortly we’ll even let you RSVP through the Discord App to ensure your greatest desire to show up and curb stomp the competition is duly noted.

Hop on our Discord Server by visiting our landing page or check out other ways to get more out of our plethora of community connecting concoctions and platforms by reading up on a few options available to you.
