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.

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?

GALLERY: The Army of Siebenbur Castle


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?

Another year and another amazing Adepticon has come and gone. This is an event I always look forward to and it was even better then last year! More tournaments, more games, and even a meeting with Games Workshop themselves!

The Unofficial Tomb Kings Battletome!


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.

REVIEW: Warhammer Quest - Shadows over Hammerhal


The newest version of Warhammer Quest, Shadows over Hammerhal, is out now and it's just as good as you would have hoped. This is it's own self contained game and not just an expansion that relies on Silver Tower to work, and it's all the better for it. It takes the rules from Silver Tower and adds to them and tweaks them in a way that makes this its own game, all while providing some great models and a bunch of background lore on the Mortal Realms' largest new city, Hammerhal.

REVIEW: Angels of Caliban


Angels of Caliban by Gav Thorpe is the latest entry in the saga of The Lion, Primarch of the Dark Angels, as the Heresy continues to unfold. Always one of the most controversial Primarchs, this book does an excellent job of further exploring him and making you question his motives even more, all while eerily mirroring a lot of current events in the real world.

Monday, February 20, 2017

REVIEW: Asurmen - The Darker Road


The Black Library was kind enough to send me some stuff to review, including the audio drama, Asurmen: The Darker Road by Gav Thorpe. I haven't read the Asurmen novel, yet I still really enjoyed this audio drama as the Phoenix Lord attempts to secure the future of the Ulthwé Craftworld.

REVIEW: Nagash the Undying King


The first Warhammer World exclusive novel for Age of Sigmar is out in the public now, and what an amazing tome it is. Not only does it look awesome, but the story by Josh Reynolds is one of the best I've read for AoS so far.

Monday, February 13, 2017

SHOWCASE: Vanguard Nighthaunts Army


Today I have my first 1,000 point army built solely for Age of Sigmar! I picked the Nighthaunts in the fall and finished them over the course of about a month and a half, and what a fun army they were to paint.

Mini of the Year Winner


It was a super close contest this year, with several models being neck and neck in number of votes as late as yesterday. The dust has cleared though and there can be only one Model of the Year for 2016. So who beat out the rest to claim the title?

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

SHOWCASE: Painted by G's 500 point Chaos Army



Today I have a special guest article by the very talented Painted by G. I saw his small Chaos army he took to Blood and Glory and was instantly in awe of it. Every model is converted and painted to such a high standard, and uniquely amongst AoS, it's an Undivided army!

An American in Warhammer World's Court


For every hobbyist who doesn't live in the U.K. one of your dreams is to one day visit the center of the hobby, Warhammer World. For those of us in the States it's even harder to get to, being on the other side of the Atlantic and all. I was lucky enough to be in England on vacation recently though and of course, one of my days was set aside for a trip to Nottingham and Warhammer World and it definitely didn't disappoint.

REVIEW: Legends of the Age of Sigmar - City of Secrets


The latest novel from the Age of Sigmar series is out to coincide with the Disciples of Tzeentch book. Besides just featuring the new Tzeentch baddies, this is also our first book with a regular mortal Freeguild member as our protagonist, in fact, the Stormcast are barely in it. Alongside the Freeguild we also get to see the Scourge Privateers and a particularly determined Witch Hunter.

TUTORIAL "CLASSIC": Tzaangors


With the release of the Disciples of Tzeentch book and myself being gone for the week I thought this would be a good time to bring back my Tzaangor painting tutorial from the Silver Tower release.

REVIEW: Legends of the Age of Sigmar - Skaven Pestilens


I know I'm a little late on this review considering the book came out about a year ago, but I finally got around to reading the Skaven Pestilens novel and I definitely was not disappointed by it. Not only do we get to read about the Skaven and Stormcast fighting on top of a giant worm, but this is the first, and only, in depth look at the Seraphon in the novels.

GALLERY: Ogornid Bugclaw Riders in the Endless Desert


Today I have a special guest article by Eric "Stonemonk Gamer" of the Mortal Realms. His Bugclaw Raiders army is awesome on many levels, not least of which is that he managed to incorporate Tyranids into AoS and have it seem logical, fitting, and pretty cool looking to boot!

REVIEW: Disciples of Tzeentch Battletome


It's been a couple of months since we have had a major release for Age of Sigmar, but the wait is finally over and change is here! Disciples of Tzeentch finally sees the Arcanites make their full appearance in AoS, but there is also so much more to this brand new style of Battletome then just them.

OPINION: What Constitutes a "Filth" List in AoS?


We have all heard people talk about "Filth" lists and how unfun they are. Generally people are talking about armies that are so tooled up that they are nearly impossible to beat and are usually owned by "power gamers". What actually makes something a filth list though?
