News

  • We’ve got our Black Friday sale running now and it is HAWT! Discounts on every FLG Mat and all ITC Terrain!
  • We’ve also got 6 new FLG mat designs and the Orc ITC Terrain is back in stock!
  • This week’s GW pre-order is Faith and Fury, and a new Underworlds warband: Rippa’s Snarlfangs! you can grab yours from us here at Frontline Gaming through our web-cart at a discount with FREE shipping options.
  • Games Workshop unveiled Mephiston today and he looks fantastic! He will be available in the next installment of Psychic Awakening: Blood of Baal which will feature Blood Angels and Nids!
  • The BAO 2020 is a go with more space than the 2019 event! Also, we’re very excited, this will be the 10th anniversary of this storied tournament! For now, you can do the following:
    • Book your hotel room at the Marriott Waterfront, where the event will be held! Per usual, their is a significant financial penalty if the event doesn’t book enough rooms so please support the event by staying at the Marriott if you plan on booking lodging.
    • You can get your early bird BAO 2020 40k Champs and AoS Champs tickets which also come with con badges for the event. All other event tickets such as the RTTs, Kill Team, etc. will go up for sale in March.
    • This event always sells out so we recommend grabbing tickets sooner than later.
  • Faith and Fury is here and will be having quite the impact on the meta, in our opinions.
    • The Masters of the Chapter upgrades are incredible. So many fun and effective combos to be found, particularly the huge upgrade to Chaplains.
    • Black Templars join the Space Marine club.
    • Chaos Space Marines get new life breathed into them with Faith and Fury! Let’s take a look at two of them:
      • Word Bearers can make fearsome Possessed units (and they were already nasty), and have some really fun combos, too.
      • Night Lords are game changers. They have some incredibly potent combos that will disrupt your opponent’s game plans significantly.

    Yes, Reece, this is good. You have my approval.
