The Loremaster's Challenge 2019: Tayrathi's Gamble and Charlébron's Risk

Hey Everyone! Today I wanted to bring you another bit of lore I wrote for my favorite Age of Sigmar Army, the Daughters of Khaine.  This lore was written for the Loremaster Challenge I was invited to partake in at this year's NOVA Open.  It is a small event among a few very creative wargamers being run my Martin Orlando with a focus on narrative gaming.  The event will see those invited competing on the table with 1000pt armies as well as having a 1000 word lore write up we all created about the armies we are battling with on the table. Feel free to check out the list I am using as the end of the post and Happy Hobbying!

Be sure to keep an eye on Twitter to vote for you favorite, but for now I hope you enjoy my 2 part narrative entitled, Tayrathi's Gamble and Charlébron's Risk.

NOVA Open 2019: Age of Sigmar Event Packs

Hey Everyone!  Today I wanted to do a brief post to share the links for all the great NOVA Open Age of Sigmar events I talked about on Tuesday.  There is a large variety between each event, but they are all well worth a look and if you are still on the fence about jumping in on one there is space available in a few of these events.  You can always jump on the waitlist as well if the event you wish to join is sold out in case a spot opens up the day of the event.

NOVA Open 2019: Just Over One Week Away!

Hey Everyone!  We are just one week (and a few days) away from NOVA Open 2019 and all the fun it promises!  Today I wanted to share some information about all the great Age of Sigmar Events happening over the event.  If you haven’t been keeping up we added a lot more events to give everyone as much time as they wish to play in the Mortal Realms and maximize the table space we have all weekend long.  Some even have spots left open if you are wanting to join in!

Hobby Table: 8-15-19

Hey Everyone!  Recently I put up a tweet detailing out a goal I am setting for myself that is due to begin this autumn.  I am a wargamer who tends to never really finish an army as I often make impulse buys to an army I have well past the 2000point mark.  Due to this I often tend to have a few units sitting on my shelf that are built and likely primed, but not painted.  These have become eyesores as the bleak grey stands out in stark contrast to my painted army as they sit side by side.  My goal is to finally break the habit and completed all of these built and unpainted models.

Review: Warcry, My First Impressions

Hey Everyone!  This past weekend I was able to finally dive into my first games of Warcry alongside my good friend Matt.  Today I want to talk a bit about how the games went and my overall impressions after a day battling in the shadow of the Varenspire.  Overall I can say I quite enjoyed the game as it is quick, simple to pick up, and has good depth in strategy the more games I played.  It won’t replace Age of Sigmar as my primary game, but I plan to pack a small force with me in my army bags going forward for pick up games at the many events I attend.  Let's dive into the Battles!

ETC 2019: USA Team Well-wishes and Army Lore?

Hey Everyone!  As you might be aware the ETC 2019 event kicks off today and runs throughout this coming weekend!  I wanted to do a special post today in order to wish the US AoS ETC team the best of luck!  May your dice roll well and the all your games turn out great!  There is some hard competition out there, but it promises to be exciting to follow through Twitter and Facebook.  I had the pleasure of helping the team prepare in a few very small ways and I really enjoyed being able to offer any help I could.  Good luck to the US Team as well as everyone else competing for their country this weekend.

Hey Everyone!  Today I wanted to bring you the first half of my two-part Sylvaneth Battletome Review.  In this post, I plan to dive into the army as it plays on the table and my thoughts on what could be some powerful ways to build your Glade.  Later this week I will be reviewing the lore in the Sylvaneth Battletome so be sure to check back to get even more Sylvanerth goodness.  Now let's take a look at the Sylvaneth Army on the tabletop!

Armies on Parade 2019 Initial Ideas and Plans

Yesterday we saw the first bit of information about this year's Armies on Parade that will be hosted across the globe at Warhammer and Games Workshop stores.  I always enjoy this event and have managed to do quite well in the past few years I was able to participate.  Sadly I missed last years competition, but I am planning on returning this year and have already begun looking at what I might bring and what categories I will be chasing.  There are plenty of categories for both Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar so there will be plenty of awards to compete for on October 19th.
