    From Games Workshop:

    From the great blackness beyond the edge of our galaxy they come, an alien swarm driven by a ravenous hunger that knows no end. These creatures have many names, for all races have come to loathe and fear them. They are the Great Devourer, the Doom of All Things, the Penance of the Elder Gods, the Shadow in the Warp. They are the Tyranids, and they have come to consume us all.

    The Tyranids are utterly alien. They are creatures of visceral horror, implacable monsters with dagger-like fangs and razor-sharp claws that can tear a man apart in the blink of an eye. Grotesque living weapons fire parasitic projectiles into their prey's flesh, eating their victims from the inside out. Stalker beasts lurk in the shadows, bursting from their hiding places to attack the unwary and devour them whole. Every one of the myriad Tyranid warrior-creatures is a killing machine, perfectly adapted to slaughter its victims. They are the ultimate predators, and we are their prey.

    January 2010 signals the release of the latest Warhammer 40,000 release, Codex: Tyranids. A 96-page volume packed to bursting with background, history, artwork and stunning miniatures, Codex: Tyranids is the ultimate resource for Tyranid players everywhere.

    As well as a fantastic new Codex, there will be a range of exciting new miniatures, including Tyranid beasts never seen before! So, start gathering your broods, prepare your digestion pools and get ready to unleash the Great Devourer upon the galaxy this January.

    • The new Codex: Tyranids cover featuring art by Adrian Smith.

    From Privateer Press:

    After nearly a year of restless anticipation, Privateer Press is proud to announce that the HORDES Mk II Field Test will open on November 24th.

    The HORDES Mk II field test documents will be available for download from the HORDES Mk II field test site at http://fieldtest.privateerpress.com. Players will need to register on the site in order to provide feedback and download the HORDES field test documents. Registration will open with the release of the HORDES Mk II field test documents at 10:00 am PST, November 24th. Note that players who register for the WARMACHINE Field Test will need to re-register to partake in the HORDES Mk II Field Test.

    Following the conclusion of the HORDES Field Test, Privateer Press will release an amended field test document online on January 2, 2010. This document will be adopted as official for all Privateer Press organized play events that include HORDES. The amended document will not be the final version of the rules, but will include some changes made from field test feedback to provide HORDES players with the best rule set possible until HORDES Primal Mk II officially releases in summer 2010.

    Companies of riflemen have joined the Retribution in number and serve as the long-reaching line for the army abroad. They wield heavy rifles capable of delivering punishing firepower against the human armies that so greatly outnumber them. Rather than haphazardly firing into the enemy, a rifleman is trained to take careful aim and regard each trigger pull as a prospective kill.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon announced his intention to write a Buffy Season Nine comic book series after the current Buffy Season Eight series ends its projected run with 40 issues, according to an interview with Tim Leong on Complex.com

     

    While Buffy Season Eight still has a dozen issues to run before it hits #40, the series has been a hit in periodical form in the direct market and in trade paperback collections in the bookstore market where it is Dark Horse’s bestselling title.

     

    Whedon told Complex.com that he still had a handful of issues of Buffy Season Eight to write before catching his breath and starting work on Season Nine, which he promised would represent quite a change from Season Eight: “I have had for a long time a conception for Season Nine that is very different from Season Eight. It may not run as long, because 40 issues sounds great until you realize that it’s four or five years.

    From ICv2.com

    One important bit of fallout from the Disney acquisition of Marvel appears to be an increased urgency on the part of the other Hollywood studios to make the most of the Marvel characters for which they have acquired screen rights.  The rights to Marvel characters come with “use it or lose it” clauses, and in the highly competitive world of Hollywood studios, there’s more onus attached to losing a potentially lucrative property to another major studio like Disney than there would be to the smaller Marvel Studios. Because of this fear of losing a potential gilt-edged property like Iron Man, even Marvel properties with less than stellar records at the box office are in serious development alongside those that have been spectacularly successful.

     

    Variety reports that Sony has revved up a second installment of the only partially successful Ghost Rider for its Columbia subsidiary while hiring writer Jamie Vanderbilt to begin work on the fifth and sixth installments of Spider-Man.

     

    Fox, not only has a number of X-films in development and a reboot of the Fantastic Four written by Michael Green, Variety reports that the studio “is quietly developing a new version of Daredevil and working on a Silver Surfer movie.”

    From Privateer Press:

    To our players:

    We have decided to do something radical. We’ve been paying a lot of attention to our forums and talking with our players at the conventions this summer and it’s clear that the anticipation for MkII is driving everyone a little batty. Many are excited, some of you are a little afraid, but the suspense is killing everyone and the speculation is killing us! So after a great deal of deliberation we have decided that the best thing we can do for the mental well-being of our community is to completely change our plans and do what we said we wouldn’t: we’re going to put all of the MkII rules and model information online as PDF downloads, because four more months is just too damn long for everyone to be holding their breath.

    There are some disclaimers and explanations that need to accompany this.

    First, the rules and stat info are final. While the books and cards are still in layout and will be for the next few weeks before they go to press, this is the final form this information will take. So you can be confident that nothing you see here will change between now and when the rules come out in book form unless we find an editing mistake at the last moment that needs to be corrected. But our development on this is locked. You have the final data.

    Second, as the book and cards are still in layout, and because we want to give this information to you now, you’re getting the no-frills version. The rules PDF is the book layout but does not include any backgrounds, art or diagrams. And in several places, you’ll note that icons are displayed by name rather than their graphic (these are waiting to be plugged in) and there are many instances of ‘see page XXX’, which is a placeholder for a page number that gets filled in as the very last thing we do in the layout process once we know that nothing is shifting around in the layout anymore. As well, the model info is being taken directly from our development files, so they’re not nice, neat little cards. Each model’s stat info is on a separate page as just the data with no graphical layout or whatnot.

    So while this is an unpolished, un-beautiful version of what will be found in the final product, and while you’ll have to read around the ‘XXX’ and icon names, it IS the final information, and we know that’s what everyone is dying for right now anyway. Think of it as seeing a movie before all the special effects, color correction, sound track and sound editing take place. It’s the movie, just not how it’s meant to be presented.

    A few final notes; once again, we want to thank our community, all of you players, for your involvement and feedback in shaping the MkII rules. While we know that this has been an inconvenient transition, we do believe that all of the changes made in MkII will improve the play experience for the community as a whole, and we also believe that this process has yielded the best possible final product. We hope that you will see the impact and the influence that your feedback has had on what MkII has become.

    While you will no doubt be eager to take everything for a spin, please be aware that our ‘official’ events will continue to be supported with MkI rules for the remainder of the year. Naturally, what you do in the privacy of your own game store is up to you and your opponent and the event organizer, but as far as we’re concerned, MkII will not be supported in organized play by Privateer until January when the book comes out.

    And a final word to our Hordes players who still have a much longer wait ahead of them; please know that we are working very hard to put out the Hordes MkII field test as soon as possible. Because of what we have learned through the MkII field test, we believe our first public draft of the Hordes MkII rules will much more closely resemble what the final rules will look like. Because of that, it is our intention to make the Hordes MkII Field Test rules official upon posting so that Hordes players can continue to participate in our organized play events alongside WARMACHINE players until the Hordes MkII book comes out next summer. The caveat of course is that things WILL change, but probably much less dramatically than some of the WARMACHINE changes that we observed.

    Thank you all for your patience, your feedback, and your continued support.

    And play like you’ve got MkII…

    Privateer Press
    Chief Creative Officer

    Today is a day of rememberance for all those innocent souls that were taken away from us 8 years ago on this day.  The Brew City Gamers wish to express our greatest sympathy and love to all that have lost someone on 9/11. Although it is a day of great sadness and terror, we remember how a city of people came together and how a nation came together on that day.
     
    To all those who lost thier lives, gave their lives, and to every single person that is still going through the terrible tragedy, our hearts go out to each and everyone of you, we share all our love with you and our thoughts are with you on this day and every day.

    Evil monsters emerge from the darkest corners of Valhalla, spreading terror as they conquer and control the mystic portals that lead to other worlds. Sinister drow and brutal trolls gather in underground ruins, and rumors of black dragons are too terrifying to ignore.  The hordes of evil must be stopped. The Valkyrie Generals representing the forces of good have summoned brave adventurers, who together embark on a quest to defeat the black dragons and their wicked allies. Will they prevail or perish?
