Mirrodin Besieged Update

Hello!

Recently we ran a sale on Mirrodin Besieged at $74.99 a box, just an early presell that was supposed to run from December 1st through December 7th. We had a limited number of boxes to sell at that price, and they sold out early and the sale ended December 6th, around 4:00 PM our time.
I apologize for this, but due to limited supply on Magic and different pricing from different distributors, we only have so much we can offer at that great low price. Demand was way greater than we expected, and the supply simply ran out!

We do have another supply at the still = great price of $79.99.

Tyrant Vorkesh


Coming February, a new Unit for the Skorne Army: Tyrant Vorkesh. The very epitome of cataphract stoicism, strength, and martial prowess, Tyrant Vorkesh is veritable juggernaut of armored destruction. As Vorkesh cleaves through enemy after enemy, his deadly accuracy with his weapon, the Arm of Rahal, inspires the cataphracts around him to strike with the utmost skill and precision, while his sheer force of will shields them from enemy magic.

Earth Reborn



I have a friend in France who designs games, Christophe Boelinger, and he has a new game coming out from Z-Man Games, called Earth Reborn. It's garnering a good bit of positive attention in the game industry, and has a current 8.75 rating on BoardGameGeek (that is a fantastic score)! We are preselling it here at Dogstar Games, so check it out of you get a chance!





Tuesday

So a lot of you emailed me this weekend telling me the games you are playing. I find it interesting. There are really two types of gamers. Gamers who play ANYTHING, and gamers who play THEIR game. Their one and ONLY GAME. (Which is usually D&D, but not always, sometimes it's Magic, sometimes it's Warhammer, etc). I'm one of those people who USED to play only one game (D&D) but as I've gotten older I will play anything. I don't always have the time to play everything, but I will give it all a try. We might be starting a new Rogue Trader campaign in the store soon (a new GM has just moved in from out of town and is eager to start the campaign with us, so we are all delighted not to have to GM anymore). I've never played Rogue Trader, but it sounds like a blast, and hey, I love Dark Heresy and it's all based in the Warhammer 40k world anyway, so I think it's going to be fun.

So drop me a line, let me know if you are a play anything kind of gamer, or if you have your one and only true love.

Dark Eldar Painting Difficulties

I'm serious when I say this, but the one thing that is deterring me from painting the Dark Eldar is that they are HARD. Too hard. Take the Reaver Jet Bikes for instance. They are black with light blue/green outlines. Right? How hard is that? It is RIDICULOUSLY hard. Painting those straight lines is a total problem. They are driving me nuts. I'm thinking of abandoning the whole army because of it. I'm experimenting with different paint schemes and thoughts to see if I can make those straight lines straight. Any help out there would be appreciated:

Check out the light green/blue glow on the edges of the bikes here in this Games Workshop photo and you will see what I mean:

Privateer Press Legion of Everblight!

Legion of Everblight Hardback and Softback came in today. The book looks awesome. Did you know this is our LARGEST preorder book so far? I'm impressed. Lot of Legion of Everblight fans, not to mention we are growing as a Privateer Press Horder and Warmachine store! Still most of our sales come off Ebay though, which makes no sense. YOU WILL SAVE MONEY ON THE WEBSITE! Just saying...

DArk Eldar Reaver Jetbikes

These things are NOT easy to paint. Here's the thing. The lines along the edges have to be painted perfectly straight. We've chosen Regal Blue as the base, then Hawk Turquoise, followed by an Ice Blue highlight. Getting the lines straight is vital, and yet, you can't use tape because 90% of the lines are curved. Makes for some difficult painting. Anywhere, here is the progress we have so far. If you have any ideas on how to paint these, let me know. BTW, we are still preselling them for the big releases in November.

Scars of Mirrodin

Came in Friday! Selling VERY well. Great set. We have singles up for sale too!

Monday Morning!

How are all my gamer friends today. We are selling the new Elspeth vs. Tezzerret duel deck, which comes September 3rd, I believe. We only got a small number allocated to us. It retails for $20.00 so I originally put it up for $15.00, to save some people some BUCKS! But I heard everyone else was selling it for way OVER $20.00, most of them up around $30.00. Well shoot! But I'm not going to do that. I did raise it to $20.00 which is retail. I guess that's fair. People have been buying 6 at a time, which seems ridiculous, but I guess it makes sense if it is a really limited item.

Here is the link to the item if you are interested: http://www.dogstargames.com/page/398589630

Meanwhile, I'm getting some presells for Scars of Mirrodin. I have the price at $80.00 a box to start with (this does not include shipping) but the price will rise on September 1st to $85.00 a box. That sounds reasonable, if you want to pay me early I'll give you $5.00 a box off. I don't make much money that way, but consider it a good thing to do for my loyal customers who buy set after set from me.

Thanks to everyone who orders from us. I know we aren't perfect. But we do work hard, and we work hard to do better. I hope you enjoy playing Magic (and other games) as much as we enjoy playing them too.

Okay, I should put the Scars of Mirrodin link up huh? http://www.dogstargames.com/page/413647688

There you go!

Warhammer Fantasy Rulebook

So guess what? My rep calls me yesterday and asks if I want a copy of the new Warhammer Rulebook! I said absolutely yes. It is in the mail, and I should get it Monday! We also will be running certain events at the store for the relaunch. I'm excited. I'm disappointed there are no models coming with this. The starter set should launch at the exact same date, and it doesn't make any damn sense that it doesn't, but what are you going to do? So when I get this I will let you know as I read through it and give you a review. We'll also start using the rules and start playing some serious Warhammer! Bretonians are getting ready to fight!

Warhammer Fantasy Game


Games Workshop announced that this July heralds the coming of Warhammer, the newest version of the Game of Fantasy Battles.

The Warhammer world is a place riven by relentless warfare and the corrupting power of dark magic. It’s a place where vile creatures and titanic monsters roam the lands, where vast armies of evil warriors unleash slaughter upon their victims and only the unceasing valour of the forces of Order prevent the whole world slipping away into chaos and death.

Amidst this tapestry of conflict and carnage are races fair and foul, warriors chivalrous and brutal. These are the combatants who fight for dominance of the world. From the blasted north come warmongering tribes of Chaos Warriors, armour-clad barbarians who have thrown their lot in with the Dark Gods of Chaos. In the Badlands gather the greenskinned marauders known as the Orcs and Goblins, vicious, brutal creatures whose insatiable lust for war grows almost as quickly as their vast numbers. Beneath the cities of the civilised realms nestle the repulsive ratmen, subhuman creatures whose machinations spread disease and distrust – these are the Skaven and they wish only to destroy and dominate all others. Even the forests of the Old World are not safe, for the trees themselves are things of malign presence and the Beastmen dwell within, the children of Chaos – braying beasts who crave slaughter and the chance to enact their savagery on the civilised races.

The Warhammer world is a place where you must bury your dead deeply, for Necromancers and Vampires raise the legions of undeath in their war against the living. Far away in the south the legendary kings of a long-dead kingdom now awaken, leaving their vast tomb cities to wage war upon all under the sun, their skeletal legions a chilling parody of their once glittering majesty.

All these examples of horror are enough to cause weaker hearts to quail, but there are those who resist the darkness, kingdoms and realms that fight for survival. The Empire, greatest of all the nations of Men musters regiments of brave soldiers. Armed with faith in Sigmar, their warrior god, and with tempered steel and black powder weapons they defend their lands. South and east of the Empire lies Bretonnia, a land of chivalry and noble tradition. There, bold knights harken the call of their mighty king and ride out to crusade against the monsters of the Old World. Dwarfs, in their mountain strongholds, are as unyielding as the stone around them as they battle above and below the ground. Loyal allies, but terrible enemies, the Dwarfs are brave-hearted and steadfast as they protect their once-great realm.

In far-off lands the Elves fight out their bitter blood feud against one another – a mighty civilisation that spanned the continents but is now riven with strife and betrayal. Perhaps the greatest warriors in all the world, their numbers are now few and too many of those that remain are lost each day in the unending war between Ulthuan and Naggaroth.

This is a world where victory and death rest upon a knife-edge and the fate of the world, be it damnation or salvation, will soon be decided.

Warhammer, the Game of Fantasy Battles will be released in July. The preparation for this date has been a time of great excitement here in the Studio as we have lavished detail, care and attention onto the rulebook and the fantastic Citadel miniatures range that it accompanies.

Now is the time to gather your regiments, paint your armies and prepare for a battle like never before. If you have a Warhammer army, dust it off and finish up those last few models. If you’ve always been tempted to collect a force there really has never been a better time to start! Warhammer is coming and it’s going to be great.

Got a few more Rise of Eldrazi boxes just put up!

Sunday

Good Sunday Gamers! This weekend saw the release of Rise of the Eldrazi, and I would say initial reports are pretty solid! Sales have been really good, and we still have some boosters left of the first wave, so you can get them at a good price. I see other people are raising their price, so be aware of that. Though some are selling second wave a bit lower, so take advantage of that if you don't mind waiting a couple weeks or so.

We're busting open some packs to put singles up for sale. We've tried this before and it's a bit of a complicated mess. But we're working on it on the website, and I think we'll see something up soon enough.

Any thoughts on Eldrazi? Make sure to drop us a line at help@dogstargames.com, and we'll discuss it! Thanks again for all the loyalty out there. If there is ever anything else we can do, let us know. Also, just so you know, our phone lines have been jammed lately and while we've been answering as best we can, the easiest way to catch us lately is with email! :)

Blood Angels

Okay, so we are excited here at Dogstar Games for the new Blood Angels stuff. We've been working on the models for a couple weeks now using the preview copies they sent us, and we've also worked on some of the new models we just got Friday! Here is what we got right now!

This below is a single Death Company model this nearly complete. All I have to do now is add some rocks to the base and seal it with purity spray.



Here are the Sanguinary Guard with multiple layers of Shining Gold built up and a wash of black. This is obviously a work in progress.



Here is my Sanguinor, Exemplar of the Host. I followed the pattern as shown on page 74 of the new White Dwarf. Just got the body done so far.



Here is my entire Death Company, without the bases done!



Do you have any Blood Angels done? Email us at js@optimumdesigns.com and let's talk about them and see them!!!
