REVIEW: Arks of Omen - Grand Tournament Mission Pack (From an AoS Perspective)


Although I started out this hobby by playing 40k back in the mists of time known as 3rd edition, I've been primarily an AoS player for the last few years. Since 9th edition launched I've been slowly dipping my toe back into gaming on the 40k side and went to my first tournament this past Fall using the Nephilim book. Now a new Grand Tournament Mission Pack is upon us, with changes to how the Matched Play version of the game is played. Instead of a standard review of the book, I'm going to instead look at it through the lens of an AoS player. So, what does the Arks of Omen pack contain?

REVIEW: Arks of Omen - Abaddon


The latest narrative series of supplements for 40k is here in the form of the Arks of Omen! This will be a series of books, with each on focusing on a different character, starting off with the big bad himself, Abaddon. So what does this book contain within its damned covers and what evils does it portend for the Imperium of Man?

Gray Matter Gaming Mats and Magnet Trays Review


I'm a big fan of local businesses, so when Gray Matter Gaming, based out of Metro Detroit in Michigan, asked me if I would like to take a look at their battle mats and movement trays I couldn't pass up the opportunity. This company took two staples of modern gaming and put their own spin on them to introduce elements to increase the ease of use by the average gamer. So how do they stack up against the competition?

TUTORIAL: Painting Fire


More and more often models are coming with "special effects" modeled on them, with the most common of those being fire. Everyone knows what fire looks like, but it can be a bit tricky to paint sometimes. Recently I worked on the Mawpot for my Ogor Mawtribes, and took the opportunity to make a tutorial on how I tackled this hot issue.

Warhammer+ Show Ideas: Beyond Animation


We're now into our second year of Warhammer+ and so far we've had several animations, as well as battle reports, lore videos, and painting videos, but I feel like there are some missed opportunities here. While I'm enjoying the animations, I have a few ideas for other shows that could be hosted on the platform.

REVIEW: Redgrass Games V2 Wet Palette


I recently got my first wet palette ever with the Redgrass Games Everlasting Wet Palette, and after holding off for so long I'm definitely a convert. Well, Redgrass Games was nice enough to send me their new V2 Painter Wet Palette that's now available to check out alongside some other cool add ons, so let's take a look!

Tyler's Tinfoil Hat Time: Globb Glittermaw and Greasus Goldtooth


It's no secret that at the moment the Ogor Mawtribes lack any real special characters. Sure, they have the two Underworlds models, but you can't even buy one of them anymore. While their model line may be lacking, their lore has two prime candidates in the form of Braggoth Varduk and Globb Glittermaw. The second one's name may seem familiar to you if you're a more veteran player; it did to me too, which led me to a debut article style I'm calling; Tyler's Tinfoil Hat Time!
