Dead of Winter boardgame availability

Boardgames, News
I've been looking for stock for the highly-rated and much-in-demand post-Zombie-apocalypse survival game Dead of Winter.  Games stores have been resupplied in the past few days but, such is the demand, they're selling out as quickly as they get it in! 365games.co.uk had stock for around an hour before it sold out.  At present the only place I've found it is Hellfire Gaming - for £44.50 plus delivery (£7.45) - so £51.95 in total. Update: 22/01/2015 (14:23): Hellfire Gaming are out of stock once more.  Third-parties on Amazon.co.uk are charging stupid prices (£75) right now.  Best to wait! Update: 20/01/2015 (13:34): Hellfire Gaming have stock again.  A third-party on Amazon.co.uk also have it at £49.99 including delivery. Update: 17/01/2015 (15:20): Hellfire Gaming have sold out

Imperial Raider – latest X-Wing “Huge” ship

FFG, News, X-Wing Miniatures
Somehow I missed the announcement during the run-up to Christmas that FFG are releasing the first "Huge" ship for the Imperials for the X-Wing miniatures game, but announcement there was. The ship is entirely new - created in consultation with Lucasfilm for the game.  It sits in the same scale as the Rebel Corvette and looks like a cross between a Star Destroyer and the recently-released Decimator.  I have to say it looks pretty good.
