The General’s Handbook 2019 has a whole new format for Matched Play and Competitive games called ‘Meeting Engagements’! I’m joined by Owen from Gaming with the Cooler to explain how it works and throw down a game! Check out the GHB2019 book review HERE: https://youtu.be/dmn2p8VZi2o
Quick post today just to update you guys on my Stormcast project. This Celstar Ballista is my last unit I'm painting to complete 2000pts. All the colours are blocked in, most of the shading is done, I still have to highlight all the colours. Shouldn't take too much more to finish them.
Here is the general for my force of Stormbros, a Lord Arcanum on Gryph-Charger:He's quite a bit overcosted compared to recent releases like Vermin Lords etc, but I needed one version of a Lord Arcanum to make Sequitors battleline in my force... this one is at least reasonably resilient and has a command ability, spell and at a pinch can late game objective grab with his wind riding ability.
September last year, I shared a WIP post of two Dracothion Guard, 9 months later and they're finished. I took the fancy shot above to celebrate. After the jump I share some close ups and give my thoughts on nearly hitting 2000pts of Stormcast. More after the jump
Hot on the heels of my Flesheaters come the Astral Templars Stormhost!This is a tourney build army I am putting together, going balls deep into a pop n drop stormbros force to eliminate the biggest monster threat my opponent has to offer haha:To start me off I have a Lord Ordinator for a +1 to hit on warmachines, a unit of Judicators for a compulsory 3rd battleline unit, and a Knight Incantor for a crucial auto unbind.
Today on the blog I share my recently finished Stormcast warband for Warhammer Underwords. This colourful group of warriors are called The Farstriders. I love these models, I mean look at them, hand held repeating crossbows, heavy armour and a parrot. Ok it's not a parrot it's called an Aetherwing. After the jump I share pictures of all my warbands painted so far and give some tips on how I took these photos. More after the jump
Hi all! Here he is… Aventis Firestrike of the Hammers of Sigmar, painted for a local painting competition! Some more angles after the jump...More after the jump
I have this mate. I've not known him long but he's a top bloke. For Christmas he bought me the Stormcast Endless spells. He loves Age of Sigmar and has painted Seraphon and Skaven. Age of Sigmar isn't even on my radar as I'm knee-deep in Conquest and Shadowspear. After the jump find out why I've painted these endless spells. More after the jump
Christian unleashes the Trogg herd on my Defenders of Lethis in this FORBIDDEN POWER Game in the Realm of Stygxx!

I painted a small unit of Castigators for my Stormcast army. These are the models that come in the Soul Wars set. It is a little frustrating that this is not a 'legal' size unit for pitched battle games. These are purchased in groups of three for pitched battles so you need one more or leave two at home. Oh well. This seems to be the way of building armies from the starter sets.These add a much needed ranged combat capability for my Stormcast army but in their first game I was not impressed. They are really designed to go against Nighthaunt armies (shocking) and are just marginally useful against others. I will pick up the easy build box at some point so I can feild either 2 units of three or one unit of six.The new Sacrosanct style Stormcast Eternal models are not my favorite. With the Soul Wars release and the appearance of the Sacrosanct models we now have Stormcast models with more robes such. What I like about the Stormcast models is the armor and now
I painted my first army specific Endless Spell for Age of Sigmar. This is the Everblaze Comet for the Stormcast Eternals. My friend, Randy, used one against me in a game last year and it was very effective. I knew it would be a must have for my army. I used it for the first time last weekend and it did well. I need to be very careful in how I use it as it is not a predatory spell so it cannot be moved.This model was super easy to build and paint. It only has three pieces including the cool molded base. I painted and flocked it in a couple of hours.
Huy is back for another Matched Play game, this time against my Stormcast Eternals in 2000pts of Matched Play! Check out HuyCon Wargaming HERE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrYwGLlRURXrKXsrULg0fZw
This is my Steelheart's Champions faction from Shadespire. These guys have been painted to match my Stormcast Eternals army for Age of Sigmar. There are AoS stats for this unit so they will see time in both games. For Shadespire these guys have done well, winning the first two games. They seem like a very powerful faction.
It's 11th of November, and the 100 year Anniversary of the end of Word War 1.The tradition here in the UK is to wear poppies and lay wreathes of the flower on various memorials dotted around the country, as a way of paying respects to soldiers who gave their lives during both World Wars in particular and and solider who has lost their life in service in general.It's a sombre cultural event, and is usually about the tragedy of war and the importance of keeping peace. Paper poppy sales go on to fund veteran charities and such. Last year I "converted" two Games Workshop Models, stripping them of weapons in place of being flower holders.To this day they stand in the front of my classroom, holding their poppies up. It's important for those of us who push around plastic soldiers and entertain ourselves with stories of war and combat to remember that our table top fantasy is built on a foundation of utter catastrophe.These models are a reminder that the opportunity for us to engage in make-believe combat is bought a
