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?

That also means the end of the 1st edition of Age of Sigmar, which is coming up on three years, and what an active three years those have been!

Battle Report: Stagnation and Change


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. When the plague legions of Nurgle are up against the disciples of the Great Schemer, who comes out on top?

All About That Base


Often times, the bases of our models are the last thing we think about. They're what we need to do to make the mini playable, but it can and should be so much more to that. There are several ways to go about basing, as well as several tips to keep in mind when working on them.

The Endless Deserts: Malign Portents


The Malign Portents event and narrative have taken over the Mortal Realms of late, and the Endless Deserts of Shyish are no exception. Strange signs and omens of ill intent have begun to spring up all across the sands and none are safe from their dread import and today we take a dive into the first of a several short stories as well as some unique rules for Tomb Kings during the Time of Tribulations.

REVIEW: Idoneth Deepkin


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?

REVIEW: The Sands of Grief


The Sands of Grief is the second installment in what seems to be the start of an ongoing series from Guy Haley focusing on a Wanderer Prince and his spite servant. I love that we're starting to see certain characters get their own series in Age of Sigmar. So, what grief do these sands hold?

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?

Deluge of Filth: Nurgle at Adepticon


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.

REVIEW: Gaunt's Ghosts - Warmaster


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.

TUTORIAL: Feculent Gnarlmaw


No Maggotkin of Nurgle army is complete without a Feculent Gnarlmaw or two. This little scenery piece turned out to be a surprising amount of fun to paint, and was mostly done with washes and dry brushing. 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.

REVIEW: Malign Portents


The Realmgate Wars are done and dusted and Sigmar's cities have spread across the realms. All is not well though, and from Shyish, the Realm of Death, foul omens spring forth. Nagash has not been idle these many years, and now Malign Portents picks up the story where we left off, and fills in many of the blanks as well!

REVIEW: Legions of Nagash


To say Legions of Nagash is a battletome I have been excited for is a bit of an understatement. Between my Tomb Kings, Nighthaunt, and growing death collection, I have a bit of a love affair with the Death range from Age of Sigmar. As a revamp of the grand alliance and our first real look at the lore behind the faction, Legions had a lot to live up to, and oh man did it hit it out of the park!

REVIEW: Overlords of the Iron Dragon


The Kharadron Overlords are still the new kids on the block when it comes to AoS, having only been around since last spring. With a couple of months under their belt they have appeared in a few stories as supporting character, but with Overlords of the Iron Dragon they've finally gotten their own full length novel! So how do the sky faring decedents of Grungni fare in their exploits?

REVIEW: Black Library AoS Advent Calendar


The Black Library Advent Calendar is a yearly tradition that a lot of people look forward too. There are usually a bunch of great gems within the short stories put out, both on the Age of Sigmar side and the 40k/30k side. This year had some really great AoS stories, including three Shadespire audio dramas and several continuations of characters we've met in previous novels!
