“Hey there, big boy. Wanna play?”

Last year, my friend E and I met up for a very inaugural match of Age of Sigmar where we more or less did, well, everything wrong. Last night, we met up for a rematch after having had several more games on other hands under our belt, as well as countless hours of debating and discussing the rules, comp variant and theories.

The one in which there are painted models.

The Festering Orchard project is coming along surprisingly well – the past week or so have seen me finish no less than five models of various types, primarily as colour testers, but actually turning out so nice that they will simply just find their way into my final force.

So… that happened.

It’s been a while. Specifically, two whole months of not a single post, and truth be told, not much hobby stuff either. I blame the fact that I have a wonderful baby boy, that work is something that happens in adult lives to provide them with disposable income, and the existence of certain Blizzard Entertainment franchises.

UNBOXING: Baleful Realmgates.

1

I don’t usually do unboxings, for a couple of reasons; first of all, because I very rarely receive new products in time to post it before there’s already ten Youtube reviews of it, but also because the Games Workshop website have become increasingly good at showcasing models to their full extent.

After a spectacular trip around the world, I finally got my hands on the first book of the series, The Gates of Azyr, and tore through the pages. But is it any good?

That thing with Slaanesh.

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the current rage in the Age of Sigmar speculation pens – that the Dark Prince is gone/dead/replaced/retconned or something similar. Add swearwords, clickbait and endless threats of quitting the game for dramatic effect. But what do we really know about the subject at this point?

Aelf Exiles: Five units you wouldn’t take in 8th edition (that are awesome now).

As we all know by now, Age of Sigmar is definitely not Warhammer. Curiously, though, every attempt I see at making any sort of composition system for army selection (and there’s been rather a few!), people seem to base any sort of balance around the perceived meta stemming from the final few months of 8th edition.
