Several new products have made their way onto the shelves here at The Sentry Box in the last few days.
Warhammer 40,000 Conquest: Howl of Blackmane by Fantasy Flight Games
The Howl of Blackmane introduces sixty new cards to expand your battles in the grim and gritty future of Warhammer 40,000: Conquest. You’ll find a battle-ready new Space Marine warlord with his eight-card signature squad offering new ideas for conquering the Traxis sector. Additionally, you’ll find three copies each of seventeen different cards that invite you to join the ranks of the Inquisition, experiment with heretical technology, or embark upon a sector-spanning Waaagh!
As the first pack of the Warlord cycle, The Howl of Blackmane brings your warlords to the forefront of your battles in the Traxis sector. New warlords are introduced in every War Pack, leading bloodthirsty armies, and bringing new strategies for achieving victory. You’ll find more than new warlords, however. Other cards introduced in The Howl of Blackmane and throughout the cycle put the focus directly on your warlord, whether by granting benefits to your other forces, orchestrating army movements, or exhausting to trigger powerful tactics.
Space Cadets: Resistance is Mostly Futile by Stronghold Games
Space Cadets: Resistance Is Mostly Futile is the first expansion for the original Space Cadets game. This expansion includes a variety of additions to satisfy every Space Cadets fan.
Cadets will be pleased to know that their ship has been upgraded with new abilities. Star Command has helpfully installed a Psycho-Acoustic Neural Interface Control (P.A.N.I.C.) button at each station that gives players new options if things aren’t going quite as expected… although unwanted effects may occur.
The Witcher Adventure Game by CD Project Red
The Witcher Adventure Game takes players on a journey across the world of the Witcher as they assume the roles of four distinct characters known from the books and video games: Geralt of Rivia, monster slayer; Triss Merigold, cunning sorceress; Yarpen Zigrin, dwarven warrior; and Dandelion, roguish bard. Each character has unique skills and multiple ways of overcoming obstacles – the choice is yours: do you fight your way to victory, call on your charm or try your hand at diplomacy?
Kanban Automotive Revolution by Stronghold Games
The setting for the game Kanban: Automotive Revolution is an assembly line. The players are ambitious managers who are trying to impress the board of directors in order to achieve as high a position as possible in the company and secure their careers. With promotions come advantages at the factory, such as more space to store precious materials and greater prestige to accelerate your ascent. Through solid management, you must strive to shine next to your peers. You need to manage suppliers and supplies, improve automobile parts, innovate — anything to stay on the cutting edge, or getting your hands greasy on the assembly line in order to boost production. You must exercise wisdom in choosing which projects you should start, selecting only those that will give you the upper hand and shunning those that will bog you down or cause the unthinkable — failure — which would diminish you in the eyes of the board.

The Sheriff of Nottingham is a fun and engaging game for all where each player will have the chance to step into the shoes of the Sheriff himself! Other players, acting as Merchants will attempt to bring their goods into the city for profit.

Experience Nottingham in a whole new way! Declare your goods, deal with the Sheriff and secure victory in a fun-filled and exciting adventure!
Shadowrun Beginners Box by Catalyst Game Labs
The Shadowrun Beginner Box Set is the first-ever introductory box set for one of the most enduring and popular role-playing settings in history. The box provide hours of excitement and adventure on the mean streets of the Sixth World, giving players to chance to inhabit enthralling characters and show the world what they’ve got.
With pre-generated characters, a simplified ruleset, a ready-to-run adventure, a solo adventure for one character, adventure hooks, and non-player characters to throw into any situation, the Beginner Box Set has everything players need to dive into the fantasy-infused cyberpunk of Shadowrun. Including, of course, a handful of six-sided dice. Players can take on the role of a powerful street samurai, a spell-slinging shaman, a charismatic troll, and more as they struggle against the mighty powers of the world and look for ways to survive—or even thrive.
Star Wars X-Wing YT-2400 Freighter by Fantasy Flight Games
A fast and resilient light freighter, the YT-2400 features no fewer than thirteen weapon emplacement points, making it an attractive vessel for smugglers, mercenaries, and other individuals looking for a heavily armed “transport.” Although a stock YT-2400 light freighter has plenty of space for cargo, much of that space is often annexed to support modified weapon systems and oversized engines.
The YT-2400 Freighter Expansion Pack brings this formidable light freighter to your table as a Rebel starship with two attack, two agility, five hull, and five shields.
Star Wars X-Wing YT49 Decimator by Fantasy Flight Games
To be granted command of a VT-49 Decimator is seen as a significant promotion for a middling officer of the Imperial Navy. A heavily armed transport, the VT-49 Decimator is one of the Empire’s most feared warships, often used to provide long-range reconnaissance or to deploy raiding parties past enemy forces.
The VT-49 Decimator Expansion Pack brings this intimidating Imperial gunboat to X-Wing as the game’s largest ship yet designed for Standard Play. Even at the game’s signature 1/270 scale, the expansion pack’s detailed miniature towers over its base and smaller starfighters.
