REVIEW: Callis and Toll - The Silver Shard


City of Secrets was the surprise hit that no one saw coming. The first AoS novel to focus on the common human, and take us away from the superhuman stakes of the Stormcast. Now Nick Horth is back with its sequel, The Silver Shard, but can it live up to the hype from its predecessor?

Age of Sigmar: Death Ascendant


With the completion of Nagash's grand plan, the forces of death have now risen as the main antagonist of AoS, usurping the spot Chaos previously held. This new arch-villain for the setting sets AoS apart from its brother system in a way that I think really helps it shine. So, what does Nagash bring to the Mortal Realms?

INTERVIEW: Josh Reynolds on Soul Wars


Today we're lucky enough to have an interview with Josh Reynolds about his new Soul Wars novel. The master of undeath himself was able to usher in the new era of Age of Sigmar with this awesome novel, which had quite a few firsts in it. How did he go about writing this novel?

REVIEW: Soul Wars Novel


Soul Wars is the first AoS novel since Wardens of the Everqueen came out in 2015 to closely follow the events of a main GW narrative, this time the new Soul Wars starter set. We see the forces of Nagash pitted against the Stormcast Eternals over the city of Glymmsforge as the dawn of a new war starts. So, is Josh Reynolds able to navigate the waters of a novel tied into a major release, and what secrets does it reveal?

REVIEW: Nighthaunt Gloom and Hexwraith Flame Paints


I've always been excited about new additions to the Games Workshop  paint range, especially when they tie into my army. Although my color scheme is set, I knew I wanted to give Hexwraith Flame and Nighthaunt Gloom a spin to see how they worked and have them available for future projects. So, how do they work, and most importantly, how do they compare to the old standby, Nihilahk Oxide?

INTERVIEW: Guy Haley on Blood Angels and More


Guy Haley is one of the most prolific writers at Black Library and his novels are consistently some of the best ones out there. Dante surprised me with the unique way it handled a Space Marine story, giving us something that stands out from all of the other 40k novels out there. This was followed up with The Devastation of Baal, a sequel that succeeds in continuing the story while also covering one of the most pivotal moments in the new 40k narrative. Today, Guy talks to us about everything Blood Angels, 40k, and even the Mortal Realms!

REVIEW: Stormcast Eternals Battletome


The launch of Age of Sigmar second edition sees the Stormcast Eternals Battletome return anew, fresh from its reforging, and bursting with new lore, artwork, and rules. After three previous Stormcast books, what does this one contain? A surprisingly good amount of new material actually!

REVIEW: Nighthaunt Battletome


The Nighthaunts have been a favorite of mine for over a year now, starting before they even had Allegiance Abilities in the 2017 General's Handbook. When I saw that they were getting their very own Battletome I was beyond excited, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. So, what makes up the processions of Lady Olynder?

One of the most exciting new additions in this edition of Age of Sigmar is Malign Sorcery and the Endless Spells it contains. Complete as its own boxset with 13 unique spells and a full book of lore, scenarios, and rules, it's definitely on most gamers' radars. So what exactly does this magical expansion contain?

REVIEW: Age of Sigmar Second Edition Core Book


One of the most impressive parts of the Soul Wars box set is the brand new hardcover core rulebook for Age of Sigmar! This is something we didn't have in the first edition of the game and something I was greatly looking forward to. Not only does it have all of the core rules, the three ways to play, scenarios, advanced rules, and allegiance abilities in it, but it has lore. A ton of it! Let's crack it open and take a look.

So, let's crack it open and take a look!

REVIEW: The Devastation of Baal


Dante was a surprise favorite for me when it came out. It was astoundingly good and deviated a lot from what you might expect from a Space Marine novel. The Devastation of Baal is the quasi sequel/follow up to it that carries us though the tyranid assault on the Blood Angels' homeworld and into the new future of 40k. So, does Guy Haley continue to carry the Blood Angel torch high in this one?

The Art of the Display


In the US many tournaments and events actively encourage you to bring along a display board for your army. It helps give the force a cohesive feel, shows off your hobby skills, and acts as a handy way to move your models around between games. I personally really enjoy making them as well. So, what goes into a display board and why would I encourage you to give it a shot?

Cats and Dogs, Apples and Oranges, Tzeentch and Nurgle. In the Mortal Realms the pair are one of the most iconic rivalries, and last week my friend Adam and I took the rivalry to the tabletop.

The Idoneth Deepkin have been one of the most anticipated battletomes of late, with aelf fans, and just AoS fans in general clamoring to get a look at them. They definitely rank up there with the Kharadron Overlords as one of the most unique AoS armies to date, so how do the lords of the oceans fare?

A Haunting in Chicago: Nighthaunt at Adepticon


Last week I talked about the 1,000 point Nurgle list I took to Adepticon, but for the main event I took an entirely different army, my Nighthaunt. This is an army I originally built as my 1,000 point list for last year, and this year they finally got to have a go at the Championships. So, how did the full ghosty army do?

I've reviewed the Maggotkin of Nurgle battletome and painted up 1,000 points worth of models in about two months, and now I've finally had the chance to test out my newest army on the tabletop, and at a tournament no less! After playing six games with my Vanguard sized army, three of which were as part of a team, I have to say, I'm pretty happy with them.

Faction Focus: Phoenix Temple


Out of all of the aelf factions, I would have to say the two that got the most love from the community and gamers out there were the Daughters of Khaine and the Phoenix Temple. Something about the stoic aelves and their majestic birds just called out to people. Today I take an in depth look at the Phoenix Temple and all of its warscrolls.

I have been a huge fan of the Gaunt's Ghosts series since I read my first book for it, which was actually Sabbat Martyr back when it came out. Since then I went back and read the rest of them and have eagerly awaited each new installment in the series. To say I was excited for The Warmaster is a bit of an understatement, and man oh man, it did not disappoint.

No Maggotkin of Nurgle army is complete without a Feculent Gnarlmaw or two.

With one down, I'm already powering through my second two, so today I take a look at how I painted this tree of Nurgle.
