Awe of Sigmar

We jump on the bandwagon and talk about Age of Sigmar and what we know so far (not much).

We wanted this out fast so the usual top-notch editing isn’t there and for that well meh.. This is a reaction piece that we are sure to revisit once some bedding down has happened for the system or whenever Ryan has 13 armies for it whichever happens first..

Wow, I am sure we have all seen what Age of Sigmar has done to the community. The F&A guys will be releasing an episode covering it all very soon. So I can’t be bothered repeating myself, except to say I am watching how this all develops as my interest is interested.

Going to be a fun few months I feel..

Guild Ball

I am taking part in the GB vassal league organised by Liam. Head over to the forums for more info.

So far the mighty Butchers have managed to get 2 wins out of 2 which is pretty good :) admittedly a couple of fluke dice rolls my win allowed me to win, but you wont hear me complain..

Hobby This Week

I have been bust finishing of Ophelia, and now started some more Nephilim for the glory of Neverborn..

Busy busy week on the news front, first up Wyrd.

We have the artwork for the Crossroads 7 band which all look pretty cool in the main. Not sure about the lead singer being hugged by what look like sorrows.

But I suppose give them long hair and him a microphone and we have a lead singer with his groupies.

Next we have the much waited on starter set for Malifaux;

Now I really dig it’s all new models and they are all mercs so you are not limited to keeping them in faction of Guild and Neverborn.

With everything in the box as well it is only a good thing to go with. A lot has been said about how a bit dull the Scion is but you know what he isn’t that bad really probably one piece job. But more importantly Neverborn get more guns ;)

Sigmar Returns

Well what to say about Age of Sigmar, this has to be the biggest news in my long gaming life the last time something so tectonically changing happen was the move to white metal from lead and GW had a sale to shift old stock (yes I am that old)..

As you read this I am sure we will be much more enlightened by this weeks issue of WD.

I am interested I can not deny it, the sigmar super knights are looking very very cool. Even after some resistance the Chaos stuff is probably some of the best non-FW stuff I have seen come out of Nottingham.

What do the future holds? Who knows but it will be fun seeing it unfold.

One thing I will say is the apparent removal of army books which would be a crying shame as love them and always have.

Hobby This Week

Well it was someones birthday recently which means I have a few extra odds and ends. But finally I have Brewmaster and I must say some of the most characterful models I have seen, worth the wait.

So mainly I have building much plastic. I am getting close to being done with the Ophelia crew as well, question is what next..

Review – Warhammer: Age of Sigmar – Pre-Release thoughts

Interesting read, anyone tempted by AoS should go have a look

Hey folks,

I don’t normally do this, but my chats, inboxes and basically any other form of communication are actually exploding with people asking my my thoughts about the spoilers for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar’s four pages of rules, which will be available with a baggie’d Stormcast Eternal this Saturday, July 4th at a friendly local gaming store near you. As usual, someone has gotten their hands on it early, scanned it and thrown it online for the masses to lose their minds over.

So having had a chance to go through the White Dwarf spread, I’ve formed some initial opinions.

The first one is, that given how short the description is, the rules are extremely functional and tight. This is the engine of a game. I’d argue you could boil a lot of rule-systems, when it comes to their core mechanics, down to this bare-bones a description. What the…

Its a slow week this week, I dont have much to say. Too muggy (starting to sound like Kev).

So instead of some deep meaningful content (stop laughing) have some random pictures instead..

Hobby This Week

At the moment I am all over the shop as far as painting goes :( I may need to do some refocusing to get on with. Too much on the list at the moment.
