A Card Game That Is Literally Unique In Every Way!

KeyForge has finally landed and it is getting a great reception.

What sets KeyForge apart from any other game in the world? KeyForge is the first of a new breed of game from Fantasy Flight Games—the Unique Game, and specifically, a Unique Deck Game. Unique Games can take many forms, but what this means for KeyForge is that every deck in existence is utterly unique and different from every other deck.

There is no drafting, deckbuilding, or boosters; every Archon Deck is complete and cannot be changed. This is part of the challenge—using only the tools at your disposal, you must best your opponent in a game of tactics. Power does not come from a single card, but rather in how the cards within a deck play off one another, just like how a team is defined by how players interact rather than by a single star.

You begin your adventures with the KeyForge: Call of the Archons Starter Set, which includes everything two players need to throw themselves into the world of the Crucible. As you can see above, you’ll find tokens, two starter decks (the only fixed, standardized decks in the game), and two Archon Decks that remain a mystery to the world until you open them up and peer inside.

A new era is just beginning, introducing new factions to the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game.

Available for preorder now.


“The shroud of the dark side has fallen. Begun the Clone War has.”
–Yoda, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

Turmoil has engulfed the Galactic Republic. The Separatist Alliance has driven a spike into the heart of the galaxy, splintering the once-unified worlds with chaos, tyranny, and fear. But even in this age of uncertainty and disunion, legendary Jedi Knights band together and fight to preserve the Republic. Soon, you can choose a side and experience a new era of space combat. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a new wave of expansions for X-Wing!

These expansions give you the chance to enter this spreading conflict and command endless legions of droid fighters or valiantly lead powerful Jedi Knights and dedicated clone pilots into battle. As you do, you’ll experience new twists to the X-Wing formula, outfit your ships with new upgrades, and immerse yourself in the Clone Wars like never before. In addition to introducing the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance as brand-new factions to X-Wing, this wave also brings the opportunity to round out your Scum and Villainy and Galactic Empire squadrons with updated versions of two classic starfighters.

Next Week: The Nightvault Opens!

From Saturday the 22nd of September the new boxed expansion for Warhammer Underworlds will be available for preorder in-store and online.


Nightvault will be kicking off with a jam-packed Core Set – your essential first step into the new season. If you’ve never played Warhammer Underworlds before, this set contains everything you need to get started.

For veteran players, this set is your foothold into the new season, providing you with the updated rules plus cards and warbands to start playing with. Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault is 100% compatible with the warbands and cards you already own, and this season will feature hundreds of cards you can add to your decks.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to try something new, the two warbands from the Core Set are just the beginning, with six more on their way featuring fan-favourite factions and ambitious new playstyles and mechanics.

Magic spells, for example, are powerful new ploys and attacks usable only by Wizards, requiring dice of their own and having all manner of unusual effects on the game. Blast your foes to ash or create mystical shields – the introduction of such sorcery is guaranteed to shake up Warhammer Underworlds forever.

New Games Workshop Products Available For Preorder

Next weekend see’s the release of a brand new army for Age Of Sigmar and a new Knight for Warhammer 40,000.

The Knight Preceptor is a Questoris-class close-ranged powerhouse. Its design is intended to exemplify the core tenets of the Code Chivalric in battle: close with the enemy in honourable range, engage them with sufficient force to show respect for their fortitude, and kill them quickly and cleanly in the Emperor’s name. Canis Rex is a notable Knight Preceptor, who escaped the tortures of the Iron Warriors and has punished the scions of chaos with vehemence and fury ever since.


The earth trembles as the beastherds approach. Plants wither and rot, animals are filled with an instinctual fear and the air grows thick with the taint of raw Chaos energy. Then the bloodthirsty braying begins. The Beasts of Chaos emerge from woodland knots and rocky outcrops, bellowing their savage battle cries as they fall upon their prey. They are the true children of Chaos, and through them anarchy and ruin are spread across the lands of the civilised races.

The Time Is Now.


We will soon be announcing the start of our official Kill Team campaign. If you are interested join up to our Kill team community group.


Also with the help from Mr Winston White we will be running demo games on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings to get any interested party involved.


Kill Team is a fast paced tabletop miniatures game, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team pits teams of elite specialists, ragtag zealots and hard-bitten veterans against each other in vicious skirmish battles to the bitter end. A single squad of well-trained and well-equipped warriors can tip the balance of a wider conflict – with Kill Team, you’ll play through countless stories of your own devising that could alter the fate of the galaxy itself.

Harry Potter Adventure Miniatures Game

The Harry Potter Miniatures game is now live and available for preorder on our website.

Knight Models is proud to present the Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game. This brand new board game allows players to immerse themselves in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World like never before.

In this game, each player takes control of a group of witches and wizards from the Harry Potter cinematic saga, each represented by a finely detailed resin miniature, sculpted to exacting detail in collaboration with Warner Bros. Each 35mm miniature is produced in high quality resin, making it ideal for collectors, painters and gamers alike.

During the game, players must outmanoeuvre their opponents across beautifully illustrated game boards representing many of the iconic locations from the Wizarding World, such as Hogwarts, the Chamber of Secrets, and the Forbidden Forest. Players must explore these environments, resolving Challenges and Quests in order to secure victory.

The Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game gives players complete freedom to form their own group of witches and wizards. Players can collect their favourite models, and equip them with Potion and Artefact cards and, of course, a dizzying array of Spells. The variety of options at your disposal means no two games are the same. The Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game is easy to learn and fun to play. Its free-flowing, dynamic gameplay means you’ll want to return again and again to unleash new characters and abilities, and perfect your tactics.
