This guy is so unbelievably epic and awesome!
Really enjoyed watching him craft the weapons and armour from the absolutely cracking game, as well as explaining the different periods the pieces come from.
Right, I really need to play some RYSE now and get my hacking and slashing on for the glory of Rome!

Black Library Advent Calendar
Kaldor Draigo: Knight of Titan by L J Goulding (Lord of the Space Marines Short Story)
Available here 99p/ $1.99
A warrior without a war. A wanderer in eternity. A man shaped by destiny, but whose destiny is yet to take shape. Kaldor Draigo is all of this and more. Lost in the infernal other realm of the warp and doomed to battle the forces of Chaos for all time, the warrior who once led the Grey Knights Chapter to war is now a legion of one, with all the daemonic servants of the Ruinous Powers arrayed against him.
Relusiam Command Squad (Dataslate)
Available here 2.49/ $3.99
Chaplains march to war at the head of Command Squads, their faith and righteous rhetoric exhorting their fellow battle-brothers to fight with the fury of the Emperor himself. These retinues are made up of veterans whose combat skills are mirrored by their tactical and strategic brilliance, each one having served his Chapter though decades of war and blood. It is a great honour for a battle-brother to be included in such a formation, fighting under the watchful gaze of the Chaplain as he does the Emperor’s work.Dataslate: Reclusiam Command Squad details the rules and background of this formation allowing you to field it in your games of Warhammer 40,000.
Ok, former leader of the Grey Knights trapped in the warp, endlessly battling Daemons!? I cannot wait to read this little beauty!! Also, don’t think I have read any Goulding yet, so look forward to seeing how they write.
Some of the previous Fantasy formation have made sense and given you enough to start a small army without the need for the army books, but I am not so convinced by some of the 40K ones and today’s in no exception.
I was just talking this through with Toxic and he explained that in previous editions it was possibly only Captains that could take command squads, but since the new codex Librarians and Chaplains can too, which rather seems to make this Dataslate redundant to me because if you are going for a Chaplain led Command Squad then it is extremely likely that you will already have the codex, making this kinda redundant.
What do you guys think of today’s releases?

From the Privateer Press website, here:
WE WILL HAVE OURS.
The nations of…
MARCH COME SOONER
I need Reznik on a chariot.
"Dashing through the sands
With a Wrack strapped to my back.
Big sword in my hand
As I power up Warjacks!”
Part of me hopes eReznik sucks because I’m not sure I need more Menoth casters (and am running low on storage space) but the other part of me knows I’ll probably make room and get him regardless
i like how the story progresses. the northern crusade is finally making its move against khador! :D as a IKRPG GM im looking forward to shaking up the players mwahahaha!
Cannot wait for Vengeance though I still need to stop being slack and finish off the story line in Colossal.
