Lets try this again (now I have seen Spidey)
Today is the first of a semi regular article called Badgers Booty!
A selection of recent gaming news that interests me, and my thoughts on it.

Lets start off with something BIG!
Privateer Press has shown some AWESOME things in the last couple of weeks with the release of Warmachine: Colossals. Check out the site >>HERE<< for full 360 views of all the models.
The new colossal for the Retribution of Scyrah.
A stunning piece! The design and the level of detail are amazing. My second favourite Colossal at the moment after Galleon. But then we haven't seen that one yet.
I would happily start a RoS force to use this creation.
General Ossrum. The new Merc Caster and 3rd Rhulic Caster. There are a LOT of happy dwarf players out there now. I think the mini captures the feel of mining mercenaries with an attitude perfectly!
Not check out his rules yet though.
The first double Epic Caster for Cryx. Ashyxious Mk3 and his personally crafted Skarlock, Vociferon.
A beautiful model for the Caster. The sword instead of spear gives him much more of a warrior look.
Not overly keen on the Skarlock though. Looks like it should be in one of those bigger fantasy games to me.
The Demolisher is the newest of Khadors Heavy Jacks. A hulking mass of armour with a hidden surprise!
Not only is this a great looking Jack, its part of a new plastic kit that also contains my 2 favourite Khador Jacks. (below
The newest Light Beast for Everblight looks almost like a living Cryx Cankerworm. But maybe that's where Everblight got the idea from?
It also continues the current serpentine and tentacle theme the Legion has recently had. Giving a look of new life and new ideas in the Dragonss forces.
Already submitted to the Apple store they are just waiting for the app to be cleared for sale / download.
I can see lots of people using War Room from now on.
It includes army builders, turn timer, quick reference rules and the ability to download all the cards for your army for around £5. That will then be updated with new releases for free.
The cards can also be used onscreen instead of on the table for the rules and to mark damage. Its said you can even connect with your opponent and both see where the damage is being marked!
Next up is a game I will be trying for the first time in the next few days. With the help of a very generous Henchman helping me to start out.
Being new to the game I am very interested in these latest previews.
I think this will be my first book for Malifaux.
These are in plastic and have a more classic / retro design than the original artwork cards.
I think these will be my first Mali cards as well.
Wyrd have been showing lots of previews and such at the moment. I have no idea what this one is about, but I like it!
Anti Matter Games. The creators of Shadow Sea.
After a VERY successful Kickstarter run they are still expanding and working towards the full release of the game.
Imagine a mix of Sci-fi, Fantasy and Steampunk. Then put it all in the water at the bottom of the sea! How good does that sound? Grabbed my attention anyway.
Recently they have having the first batches of minis painted by Worthy Painting and here are 2 of them.
Both from the Ancients faction.
Stunning models with such a great concept. Really looking forward to see what else they do and getting my hands on the game.
Finally for today,
