Lore Review: Forbidden Power

Today I want to try something I don’t normally do, but it is something many of you have been asking to see for some time now.  Having just picked up a copy of Forbidden Power I plan to review the rules, lore, and the box contents in today's post.  I dive deep into the lore section of the book and it does contain a fair number of spoilers so if you are planning to pick up the supplement and give it a read yourself you might want to skip that section.  I am curious to hear any feedback on what you like and didn’t like regarding my review so I can continue to improve this type of post going forward as they will likely become much more regular.

The Hobby Table: 5-28-19

Hey Everyone!  Today I wanted to do another Hobby Table update as I have been pretty busy over the past few weeks and that trend is likely to continue for the next few months.  From random hobby to new releases I have been building and painting almost daily. Admittedly, my hobby has been a bit all over the place, but with the Rend 4 event in July and NOVA fast approaching my hobby needs to get much more focused.  Also, I plan to do a review of the recently released Forbidden Power later this week so be sure to check back for that on Thursday.

Malerion, Once Malekith : The Eternity King

Malerion, formerly known as Malekith, once Phoenix King, once The Eternity King, forever known as The Witch King, God of Shadow.  Malerion was a driving force in the events of The World That Was having shaped it through either direct manipulation or unintended happenstance.  He was the son of Aenarion, The First Pheonix King, and Morathi which saw him destined for greatness while being surrounded by a shadow they would never truly leave.  As the events of Age of Sigmar and its history have unfolded Malerion has had to will himself back to physical form while finally accepting who he was always meant to be in the cosmos.  He has played his part in The Mortal Realms as a member of Sigmar’s Pantheon, gifting Sigmar the Gladitorium for his Stormcast Eternals to battle without fear of death.  More importantly, he was pivotal in the capture of Slaanesh in order to recreate the Aelven race.  Malerion is an intriguing character full of duality that will always keep you guessing and invested in his story.

Battletome Banter: Daughters of Khaine Temples

Hey Everyone!  As you are all aware I am a big fan of the Daughters of Khaine and how they play on the tabletop.  Primarily I have played the Kraith Temple with lots of prayers and Witch Aelves and feel I have really mastered that style of play.  However,  I am aiming to truly master the entire book so over the past few months I have been playing the other Temples and Battalions in the book.  Today I want to run through my thoughts and experiences in playing each temple and hopefully encourage you to try the other styles of play within your preferred Battletome.

Putting Your Custom Character on The Tabletop

Hey Everyone!  A few days ago I managed to complete the fourth version of my custom Daughters of Khaine Hero, Tayrathi Swiftheart.  After I set the latest model on the shelf I really began to think about how fun it has been creating the characters model and telling her story through the many forms I have created over the past year.  Today I wanted to talk about how you can also kitbash and create your character(s) to lead your armies to their many victories.

Army Lore: H'Ka'ty The Perverse

Hey Everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you a the beginning bits of the lore around the Slaanesh army I am have been slowly creating.  True to form I have chosen a Popstar to be base my central character off of, much in the same way as Tayrathi who leads my Daughters of Khaine is based on Taylor Swift.  The leader of my Slaanesh faction with be H’Ka’ty The Perverse a Keeper of Secrets based off Katy Perry.  I plan to connect the two factions stories in way of a feud that is reminiscent between their real-life counterparts.  It's a bit of fun, but very much set in the Mortal Realms.

A Tale of Four Warlords: Three Club Challenge - Month 1

Hey Everyone!  Today I wanted to chat a bit more about the Tale of Four Warlords challenge happening between my local club, Ligonier Legion and the nearby clubs Rend 4 and Steel City Sigmar.  The event really took off and grabbed a lot of interest as we teased out snippets to the clubs, but we saw a last-minute influx the day the event began!  Since May began everyone is fervently working on their commitments of 500-600 points to start their new faction.

How do you Theme your Warhammer Armies?

Hey Everyone!  Recently I decided to repaint my Sylvaneth army from an Autumn theme to a more Spring theme and I am planning on making the bases a suitable Mortal Realms feel.  It got me thinking about how people decide on a theme for their armies.  Do they begin with a certain color, a bit of lore, box art, having a commission painter decide the theme or something else entirely?  Today I want to explore some of the ways I see people theme their armies and how I have themed (or rethemed) my own over the past few years.
