Warlord Games has no issues letting us know what their designers are up to, and today we have a look at the next two months of releases. This is exciting because the new Battle for Xilos supplement is coming, and with it a lot of characters and new units.

TIME FOR ANOTHER GLIMPSE INTO THE WARLORD DESIGN STUDIO TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE’S WORKING ON, AND PERHAPS A HINT AT WHAT’S TO COME…
Wojtek has completed the sculpting on an Isorian character known only as Xan Tu. He’s also completed a squad of Soviet veterans in snow suits for our forthcoming Winter Soviets range. In addition he’s working on Highlanders for the Crimean War…
Steve has now slunk off on a weeks dereliction of duty (sorry – holiday) but before he left finished the first five Australian Independent Commandos (as seen here) as well as working on new crew for our Persian King’s Chariot.
Darek has been painting the many variants of our soon to be released plastic Churchill tank (as previewed here). He’s also been making new weapons for the British Home Guard
Kirsten has finished painting the Boromite Heavy Mag Cannon and has now started work on the colossal Matronite Brood Mother. That might take some time!
OH, AND SPEAKING OF ‘WHAT’S TO COME’…
Following some of the work-in-progress sculpts and models shown at Salute earlier this year – we’ve heard a lot of eager speculation and murmurings throughout the community with regards to what might be being released over the coming days, weeks, months – and even years!
Well – when it comes to Beyond the Gates of Antares in particular, we thought we’d give a glimpse at a portion of our release schedule…
Keep in mind that there are many variables involved in the progression of a project, so the release schedule is subject to change and shift…
