OVERVIEW: Coalescence - The Endless Deserts


Coalescence, the global one day narrative event for Age of Sigmar, has come and gone and it was a tremendous success! Locally I ran my own event, set in the Endless Deserts of course. With 10 players fighting for our Keystone Shard, the Eye of Ptra, it was a super fun day with plenty of stories to tell from all of our games.

TUTORIAL: Sons of Dorn Primaris Marine


When I first saw the new Primaris Marines I went through a few different ideas of how I would paint them, Ultramarines, Flesh Tearers, Crimson Fists; but in the end I decided this was the perfect opportunity to resurrect my own chapter from more than 10 years ago, the Sons of Dorn.

REVEIW: The Warhammer 40,000 Indexes


Largely equivalent to the Grand Alliance books for AoS, the new 40k released a series of five Indexes to cover all of the rules for every existing army and currently in production model for the system on day of launch. So what exactly do these books cover and how much do they have for each faction?

REVIEW: The New Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook


I was lucky enough to get a review copy of the Dark Imperium boxset, which comes with the same full, hardcover rulebook for 40k that you can buy separately. Not only have the rules been radically revised, but the background of the setting is moving forward in a big way for the first time in over a decade. So, let's crack it open and take a look inside!

REVIEW: Vaults of Terra - The Carrion Throne


I'm a big fan of Inquisition books, you can blame the Eisenhorn and Ravenor series for that, and when I saw this new book coming out by Chris Wraight I knew I wanted to read it right away. Exploring the Inquisition allows authors to bring to life all of the day to day smaller stuff about the Imperium that we know is there but often gets overlooked in giant war novels. This one even takes place on Terra itself at the close of the 41st millennium, giving us our first in depth look at the throne world. So, does The Carrion Throne live up to the reputation set by its predecessors?

REVIEW: Dark Imperium Warhammer 40,000 Starter Set


It's been teased for months now, and finally the new Warhammer 40,000 starter set is here! Dark Imperium brings you the new rules for the latest edition of 40k along with two amazing looking armies, one of which is brand new to the 40k setting. There's so much packed into this box, so let's take a look at everything you get.

GALLERY: Kharadron Overlords Arkanaut Frigate


The centerpieces of any Kharadron Overlords army are the Skyvessles. These models are awesome looking and something we haven't seen in Age of Sigmar before. To round out my first batch of Overlords I knew I had to paint one of these up, so the Frigate Death Breaker adds its might to my skyport of Barak-Mor.

REVIEW: Echoes of Revelation Audio Drama


The latest audio drama in the Horus Heresy series actually comprises of three separate stories, all focusing on either wrapping up loose story ends or moving the overall story closer to its end on Terra. With contributions from Chris Wraight, Gav Thorpe, and Dan Abnett, Echoes of Revelation promises a lot, but does it deliver?

REVIEW: Warhammer Age of Sigmar Skirmish


The Age of Skirmish is upon us with the release of the Age of Sigmar Skirmish supplement. A rather simple addition, it adds a fantastic new way to play the game using all of your existing rules and models, as well as a bit of new background lore on the mysterious city of Shadespire. Let's take a look at what's between the covers!

REVIEW: Cult of the Warmason


Genestealer Cults have always interested me. There is something about them that just feels very unique to 40k, and at the same time very different to a lot of the other factions. When I saw a book featuring both them and the Sisters of Battle from C.L. Werner I knew it was going to be my next read. So how do the Cults fare in one of their few literary outings?

GALLERY: Astral Claws Space Marine Army


The Badab War has always fascinated me, and when Forge World released their books I started collecting an Astral Claws army. It was always a slow burn project and several years later I still haven't gotten a very larger force. With the new 40k fast approaching I decided I wanted a new army and got rid of my Astral Claws, but not before taking a last set of pictures of my boys in silver.

REVIEW: Magnus the Red - Master of Prospero


I am a huge fan of the novel A Thousand Sons by Graham McNeil, so I was definitely excited to see him take back up the reins of the big red giant with this installment in the Primarch series. Taking us back to a time before the Heresy erupted and all was still good amongst the legions, Magnus the Red: Master of Prospero allows us to delve a little deeper into the mystical Primarch and his sons when they were all still getting to know each other.

GALLERY: The Cult of Slaanesh by Elfhead


Today I have a special guest post by Elfhead of the TGA Community as he shows off his fantastically converted and painted Cult of Slaanesh warband. This army bridges the gap from The End Times to AoS spectacularly, and every single model is a unique character in their own right. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

REVIEW: Warlord - Fury of the God-Machine


I've always been a sucker for Titans. Ever since I read Titanicus back in the day I just fell in love with Titan stories and Warlord: Fury of the God Machine by David Annandale carries on that megalithic torch with a vengeance.

GALLERY: Aetheric-Navigator of Barak-Mor


With my Arkanauts done it was time to add a hero to lead them, and luckily an Aetheric-Navigator was on hand to take command. This burly duardin was a ton of fun to paint, and fairly quick and easy too!

REVIEW: Scythes of the Emperor - Daedalus


Laurie Goulding returns to the Scythes of the Emperor with another short story, this time as an audio drama. Having moved on from the disaster at the Giant's Coffin, the Scythes are looking to rebuild their fractured chapter. When a splinter of Hive Fleet Kraken happens to attack a world that is currently housing some of their precious gene-seed it is up to a small strike force to retrieve the cargo and its accompanying Apothecary. Can they slip past the tendrils of the Tyranids unscathed?

The Unofficial Tombs Kings Battletome Contest Winner!


A month ago I released the Unofficial Tomb Kings Battletome for Age of Sigmar, and to celebrate it I launched a competition to win a printed copy of the book. Many entries later and a winner has been chosen. Check out all of the entries, plus the winning army, and enjoy the awesome Tomb Kings hobby!

TUTORIAL: Kharadron Overlords of Barak-Mor


When I started painting my Arkanauts I knew I wanted a unique scheme that looked great on the table, but was fairly quick to paint. After a test model I had my colors sorted and painted the whole unit at once. Hopefully this step by step guide helps you out, even if you don't want your Overlord to come from Barak-Mor.

GALLERY: Kharadron Overlords Arkanauts of Barak-Mor


Armed with a brush, some paint, the new Kharadron Overlord Arkanauts models, and a desire to fit this newest race into the backdrop of the Endless Deserts of Shyish, I dove head first into creating my own skyport of Barak-Mor.

REVIEW: Kharadron Overlords Battletome


The newest army for the Mortal Realms has descended from the clouds with their new models and Battletome in tow. So how do the Kharadron Overlords fit into the ongoing tapestry of AoS and what other surprises does their new book contain? Well, grab your top hat and monocle, get your mustache guns ready, and read on to find out!

REVIEW: Praetorian of Dorn


The war has finally come to Terra in Praetorian of Dorn by John French. Pitting two of my favorite legions, the Alpha Legion and the Imperial Fists, against each other in a shadowy war of subterfuge and misdirection, this novel was something I was definitely looking forward to reading. Did it live up to my expectations or fall foul of Alpharius' ploys?

Tournaments and Soft Scores


A topic of conversation I have heard popping up a lot recently are soft scores at Tournaments. Some of you may not be very familiar with what soft scores are, but I personally think they are very important to the hobby scene. So what are soft scores and why do I think they need to stick around?

Today I have a special guest article by hobbyist extraordinaire Martin Orlando. You may have seen pictures of his army already on several of the Facebook groups. Here he has gathered together a bunch of those pictures as well as going over his thoughts behind making the army. So without further ado, here is Martin to tell us about The Army of Siebenbur Castle.

REVIEW: Blades of Khorne Battletome


After the Disciples of Tzeentch Battletome came out it seemed almost a given that the rest of the Chaos Gods would get the same treatment. We're not to be disappointed, with Blades of Khorne following in its brother's wake in glorious fashion. So how does the second Mono-god book and second redone Battletome (following the Stormcast one) fare?

Read on to find out how you can win this super exclusive prize.

This is something that myself and a small team have been working on for over a year now and it's finally done! The Unofficial Tomb Kings Battletome is ready to be used by all the prospective Tomb Kings and Queens out there. So what is this all about you may be asking?

REVIEW: The Binary Succession


I'm a big fan of all of the audio dramas that Black Library puts out, and they continue to surpass their past efforts with each one they make. The Binary Succession by David Annandale is no exception to this. Besides being wonderfully performed, the story is gripping and explores the complicated politics of the High Lords of Terra, the Mechanicum and deals with a huge moment in Imperial History.

Kharadron Overlords First Thought & Hints of AoS' Future


Last night Games Workshop lifted the veil of secrecy on their newest army for Age of Sigmar, the Kharadron Overlords, and wow, what an army it is! These guys are unlike anything we have seen so far and it's safe to say I am thoroughly impressed.

REVIEW: Slaughter at Giant's Coffin


The Scythes of the Emperor have always been an interesting Space Marine Chapter to me. Not only is their color scheme striking, but their history is rather tragic and engaging too. Their home world having infamously been wiped out by the Tyranids, Slaughter at Giant's Coffin by Laurie Goulding picks up immediately after, but can they survive what follows next?

REVIEW: New Stormcast Eternals Battletome


Ever since the General's Handbook came out people have been asking for Allegiance Abilities for the Stormcast and now we finally have them in the new and updated version of the Stormcast Eternals Battletome. This is the first Battletome in AoS to get an update, so how does it compare to the original as well as its contemporaries?

TUTORIAL: Kairic Acolyte


I got some of the Disciples of Tzeentch models when they came out back in January and between projects decided it would be a fun break to paint up a test model. My goal was for it to be quick and look good, which meant once again priming it white and use a lot of shades. At roughly an hour and a half for this mini I think it turned out pretty good.

SHOWCASE: Lord-Relictor


When I first heard about the new Stormcast book coming out and the fact that there would be new prayers for the Priests to use I knew it was time to paint up my Lord-Relictor. I always liked the model, but he was just a bit underwhelming in the game. Now I had a reason to work on him though and he was much easier to paint then I thought he would be.
