Steel City Sigmar's Second Event

Hey everyone!  Today I wanted to talk about Steel City Sigmar's Second event.  Sadly I was unable to attend, but one of the local club members Mike S. was gracious enough to write up his games and thoughts from the second event.

I met Mike at the local Warhammer store and he has been part of the scene since the first day.  He admittedly is a bit of a Meta Chaser, but always a fantastic gentleman to play and have a beer with after the dice are done rolling.  Check out his game recaps below as well as pictures from the event!

Building a Community : Part 5

Welcome to Part 5 of my "Building a Community" Series.  If you have not read Part 1, 2, 3 or 4 please check them out in the links below.  Today I will discuss the recent town meeting I held at my local club and the rather quick turnaround I have seen in members since. 

At our last club day, I felt it was best to hold a town meeting to get everyone together to discuss the future of the club.  I felt a lot of what I was trying to do wasn't being received properly or was being misinterpreted.  I was told that a few people felt I was going to ruin the club!  I needed to get everyone on the same page as me, and I needed to alleviate any fears while finding out what they wanted as well.  We took an hour at the beginning of our Club day and I lead the discussion.

Weekly Hobby : 4-26-17

Hey everyone!  This week's Hobby is all about preparing for Coalescence on June 10th.  The word for the event has spread much quicker and farther than I originally thought it would have for my club.  I decided to keep pushing and have been hitting up local stores to hang up flyers I printed off for the event and hopefully get players to register via email so I can get a somewhat accurate headcount.

Player Spotlight : Matt H.

Hey Everyone!  This week I wanted to begin a new segment where I talk to a club mate about their journey in Age of Sigmar and this Hobby.  Today I will be talking with Matt who is a consistent member of a local group based in Pittsburgh, PA.  I am dragging him back to Twitter so follow him here as well!

Weekly Hobby Update : 4-19-17

Hello Everyone!  I have made the decision to take my blog from once per week to twice per week.  I want to have a short post about what hobby I have going on or a short hobby related topic every Wednesday, which is the post you will see today.  I also plan to continue bringing you longer more in-depth posts at the end of the week on Friday.  If you have any topics you would like to see covered in my Shorter Tuesday posts please let me know.  Today I want to share with you all the projects I am currently working on as well as what is coming down the pipe for my hobby.

Adepticon 2017 Age of Sigmar Championship

Hello everyone!  I wanted to take this week’s post to run down my games from The Age of Sigmar Championship that I participated in at Adepticon 2017 this year.

I decided to take the Stormcast Eternals to the event.  My intention was to take the Warrior Brotherhood, but after the changes that occurred in the new book, it simply wasn't a worthwhile option in my opinion.  With only a limited amount of time to adjust my list, I decided instead to use the Hammerstrike force. Because the Hammerstrike force acts similarly to the old Warrior Brotherhood, I decided to go with what I was more familiar with.  An added bonus was that it also meant I only had a few late painting nights to be prepared for Adepticon.  Now on to the games!

Building a Community : Part 4

Welcome to Part 4 of my "Building a Community" Series.  If you have missed Part 1, 2 or 3, please check them out in the links below.  Today I want to talk about how I will attempt to bring unity to my local club.

Later this month my local club, Ligonier Legions, will meet as we usually do.  However, instead of setting up immediately for a gaming event, I have set up an open forum to let members determine the future of the group.  After speaking with a few dedicated club members, I believe an open forum is my best option to bring us all together.

Post Adepticon 2017 Impressions

Hello, everyone!  I have recently returned from my first Adepticon and I wanted to share an overview of my time at the convention and run through my experience. was great!

I traveled out with my buddy Matt and from Pittsburgh, PA.  We took a predawn drive Thursday morning through a few states; Indiana being the worst due to construction, and seven hours later we arrived at our hotel.  After a bit of unwinding, I headed over to the Convention Hall to Register and explore.
