A Tale of Four Warlords: Blood Stalkers


As the search for the 8th Wonder of Ghur continues my Daughters of Khaine army continues to grow; this month with the inclusion of the serpentine Blood Stalkers! The melusai are some of my favorite models in the army so I was eager to add a unit of these huntresses to the expedition.

REVIEW: Blacktalon - First Mark


Neave Blacktalon has been an interesting character to me since she first came out. She was the first female Stormcast model we ever got, looked awesome, and had a pretty cool backstory to boot, as small as it may have been at the time. I was definitely looking forward to reading a book featuring her as the main character, and I wasn't disappointed by First Mark.

This is Only a Test: The Value of a Test Model


We all have at least one in our collections. More than likely we all have a few of them. I'm talking about the ubiquitous test model of course. The first mini in a collection to bravely forge ahead into a new color scheme or army. So, why are test miniatures so important to what we do as hobbyists?

Breaking Out of the Matched Play Mold


With 18 different Matched Play battleplans to choose from, sometimes there doesn't seem to be any reason to venture out of that comforting cocoon. I'm as guilty of doing this as anyone.  It's nice to break away from it every now and then though and visit those other two sections of the rules, Open and Narrative Play.

A Tale of Four Warlords: Witch Aelves


Moving into the second month of our Tale of Four Warlords I decided I needed to start bulking out the core of my Daughters of Khaine, and what better choice to do that than with the ubiquitous Witch Aelves.

REVIEW: Shadespire: The Mirrored City


From the moment I first read about Shadespire I knew it would be a great setting for a novel, and so I was pretty surprised when there was no tie in fiction upon its release. The wait is now over though, and we have our first full length Shadespire novel from non-other than Josh Reynolds, master of the Age of Reynolds. So, what exactly happens within the Mirrored City and who do we meet?

Battle Report: Seraphon vs Nighthaunt


While the Michigan GT was approaching I thought it would be a good idea to get some practice games in with my Nighthaunt army. Al, a local club mate, was looking to do the same with his Seraphon he planned on taking. With that in mind it was set, the dream lizards were taking on the living nightmares in the latest Battle Report on Mengel Miniatures!

Michigan GT: A Haunting in Lansing


There are two gaming events that are always on my calendar every year, Adepticon and the Michigan GT. This past weekend the more local of those happened (the GT) and it was the first time my Nighthaunt under the new Battletome got a serious outing, so how'd they do?

Army Building in the Age of the Meta



The meta can be a tricky thing to navigate. It's that ever present element of competitive gaming within Warhammer, and lots of time it can lead to certain army builds if you want to tackle it effectively. Today I take a look at what that means and how concerned you actually need to be about it.

A Tale of Four Warlords: Lathori Bloodsorrow of Khar Nair


Last month I went over what The Eighth Wonder of Ghur: A Tale of Four Warlords was, but this month I'm going to dive a bit deeper into my role in it. Specifically the temple of Khar Nair, my army of bloodthirsty Daughters of Khaine led by Hag Queen Lathori Bloodsorrow. So, why did I choose to go with the scions of Morathi?

REVIEW: Beasts of Chaos


I remember the 6th edition Beasts of Chaos book way back when, with its combined forces of all things monstrous. It's been quite awhile since the wild creatures of chaos have been united under one book, but now it's back for AoS! So what secrets do the true children of Chaos hold?

A Tale of Four Warlords: The 8th Wonder of Ghur


I've always loved Tales of Four Gamers, or Warlords as they're called now. There's just something so satisfying about seeing the different armies and forces grow over the months. With that in mind I went to Eric, Jimbo, and Mitzy and we laid out a plan for our own Tale of Four Warlords, The Eighth Wonder of Ghur!

GALLERY: Lady Olynder, Mortarch of Grief


As soon as I saw the new Nighthaunt range I was blown away by the Lady Olynder model. The simplicity of the model makes it so elegant and a painter's dream with all of the surfaces for blending. I knew right away I needed her leading my army, and promptly added her into my painting schedule.

Faction Focus: Gutbusters


I remember when the Ogre Kingdoms first came out for Warhammer Fantasy back in 6th edition. It was an amazing looking army at the time, and the first army that really let you focus on a lower model count. Most of units from that army have made the transition over into AoS as the Gutbusters, and now wreak havoc across the realms, devouring all in their path. Today I take a deeper look at the Gutbusters and all of its warscrolls.

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?

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?
