Army Lore: The Reiksguard Eternals

For Empire! For Sigmar!

When Age of Sigmar released I knew I would be picking up the starter set.  Not for a love of either army (in fact I would trade the Bloodbound for some Dark Elf models), but to support the new game system.  What I did not expect was that I would begin to love the Stormcast models.  After listening to the audio dramas it gave me fresh insight and new appreciation to the army.

When deciding on how to paint my Stormcast I went with a theme I created back when Paint Hammer ran a painting competition using the free Stormcast that came with the White Dwarf at the time.  The Reiskguard were always an army I wish I had time and money to do.  The look and story behind them always captivated me.  Sadly the World would end and they would be no more?  Or maybe they would?  So for the competition I painted my Stormcast  in Reiksguard Red and White and used a few Empire bits I had.

Never Kneel....

The Tomb Kings are exiting the scene and it is indeed a sad day.  While they will be around the gaming tables for a while to come the lack of support from Games Workshop means they will most likely fade away at some point.  Lost somewhere between The World That Was and The Mortal Realms.

Basing in the Age of Sigmar

My original plan for this weeks post was to talk about my "top secret" Age of Sigmar Aelf army, but while working on said army today I began thinking about rebasing and base sizes.  That train of thought gripped me to the point I decided to make this post about my thoughts on the subject.

Remember when this picture dropped?
