The One About The Return of the Great Devourer, Awesome Women and Kill Teams new expansion.

Hi Guys,

I hope that you are having a good week so far.

For today's Blog I thought I would we would cover the awesome news from Games Workshop that the 9th edition rules for Tyranids are not to far away.

So far we have had a glimpse of the Tyranid codex, but also today we had a first look at one of the new beasties that is going to feature in the codex, "The Parasite of Mortrex".

Because what's scarier than an army of beasties charging at you? An army of beasties that are laying their eggs inside you of course.

If we learnt anything about the new codexes is they are all packing a punch and if the new the new stuff the Tau and Aeldari have is anything to go by I'm expecting to see Carnifex's biting tanks in half.

What are your predictions? Let me know in the comments below.

Next up I wanted to talk about National Women's Day.

National Women's day is the opportunity for us to recognise the impact women have on the world we live in.

As Warhammer 40K is one of our biggest lines I thought it would be great to start International Women's Day with Mary Shelley, who's first novel "Frankenstein" would effectively become the first Science Fiction novel.

Keeping with the theme of science and space I also wanted to show some appreciation for Judith Love Cohen who It is recorded that she was troubleshooting problems with schematics for a project she was working on at NASA when she went into labour. She went on to complete her task send it to her boss before delivering her baby. A baby that would grow up to become Jack Black!!

Finally. I wanted to close up this segment of the blog with some recognition for Charlotte who joined our team 6 months ago and I thought it would be prudent to show that the hobby of warhammer and tabletop gaming is slowly moving away from been a male dominated hobby.

"Hi everyone, to celebrate international women's day i thought i’d make a post about my experience as a woman working in the tabletop gaming industry.

Traditionally tabletop games are seen as a “man's world” and although there may be a higher percentage of men in the hobby, women are just as important.

Unfortunately, there are still people that would seek to exclude or look down on women in games and Composite Games has a firm stance on inclusivity of all kinds.

As Doncaster's FLG (friendly local gaming store) we welcome everyone to come and enjoy a game, or just come in for a chat!

Luckily, I myself have only felt welcomed by the customers who come in to the store, and i hope by working at Composite Games I can broaden people’s horizons on who they might expect to be interested in Warhammer, Star Wars, Marvel and general geekery.

I’ll look forward to seeing everyone in store, Charlotte.

If you have any examples of any Women that you would like to share then please let us know in the comments below.

And finally, it's time for the next expansion of Kill Team

This next expansion is focused on Chaos Space Marines and Aeldari Corsairs.

The new set is due to go available for preorder on Saturday and if you would like to get your hands on a set, you can reserve one by dropping us a message or email via our contact's page.

If you made it this far thanks for reading our blog and we hope you have a good week and well see you either in store or at our next blog.

Take Care
