  1. Why You Should Rebase

    Great article again Chuck. Personally I'd love to see Games Workshop publish an official base chart as a PDF (or in GHB2018) as a guide for matched play. It would avoid so many issues with running tournaments. It also avoids the cognitive dissonance issue for new players who expect measure to model, base sizes don't matter etc, and then hit the tournament scene...
  2. Malign Portents

    Hey everyone, I've made a page to contain all the officially released information on Malign Portents (because it is not all on malignportents.com). In it are links to all the videos, stories and a transcript of the key points of the Warhammer Live interview with Phil Kelly (useful if you don't have Twitch). Let me know if there is anything I missed or should include. I'm going to keep it updated as the story arc progresses. https://aosshorts.com/malign-portents/

    Fixed thanks
  4. new death battletome announced!

    Hey guys, I've added a page on aosshorts.com to track all the official information on Battletome: Legions of Nagash in one place. It would be great to know if I have missed anything. https://aosshorts.com/legions-of-nagash/
  5. Maggotkin of Nurgle

    Hey guys, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to record a short Maggotkin of Nurgle review show. In AoS Shorts style it is hopefully "just what you need to know" in 20 minutes or so. In the show I cover the overall playstyle for the army, allegiance abilities and propose some likely army builds. Now, as this is all early days, I don't pretend this is authoritative, but instead is more some initial impressions on the release. The show is on iTunes, Podbean, and the full show transcript, links and further resources can be found here: https://aosshorts.com/maggotkin-of-nurgle/ I'd be really interested to hear what you guys think.
  6. Let's chat : Maggotkin of Nurgle

    Thought I'd add my two-cents on the battletome by podcast In AoS Shorts style it is hopefully "just what you need to know" in 20 minutes or so. In the show I cover the overall playstyle for the army, allegiance abilities and propose some likely army builds. Now, as this all early days, I don't pretend this authoritative, but instead is more some initial impressions on the release. The show is on iTunes, Podbean, and the full show transcript, army lists, links and further resources can be found here: https://aosshorts.com/maggotkin-of-nurgle/ I'd be really interested to hear what you guys think.
  7. A New Beginning

    Interested to see your ideas and how the blog progresses Aiden. Been great hearing how far you've come with Pestilens from the Wellington lads. Shows the importance of knowing your army inside and out to maximise its effectiveness.
  8. New FAQs, Forgeworld and Compendium in one PDF

    Now includes new Chaos FAQ and Monstrous Arcanum warscrolls
  9. How to connect to the wider Age of Sigmar Community

    @Sheriff I would second joining Twitter and following Element Games on there. There are quite a few AoS gamers in that area.
  10. GHB2017 - Rules questions collation thread

    I've update the top post with 90% of the questions - some have been answered or need a bit more thought (re allegiances etc)
  11. Hello and welcome to the first AoS Shorts XL – a slightly longer show allowing a more in-depth coverage of a particular topic. Today, I’m joined by Shaun Bates, currently New Zealand’s #1 Age of Sigmar tournament gamer, to talk about Stormcast Eternals in General’s Handbook 2017. Shaun has had great success running different Stormcast lists on our local scene. In particular, he has gotten the most out of underutilised units to build synergistic mixed arms lists and win tournaments. In this show, we cover Stormcast as an army in Age of Sigmar, their strengths and weaknesses, some ideas for builds around Palladors, and some general tips for improving your tournament success with Stormcast. Later in the week, I’ll expand this blog post with a summary of this interview – so you have all the key points in one place. You can find more information on the AoS Shorts General’s Handbook 2017 page. You can find Shaun on Twitter at @AoSShaun89 and me at @antipodean7. Let us know what you think of the new format, audio quality etc. as we experimented with some new equipment. https://aosshorts.com/stormcast-eternals-ghb2017/
  12. New FAQs, Forgeworld and Compendium in one PDF

    Now includes updates for Blightwar, Plague Toads and Tamurkhan's Horde
  13. Allies matrix

    Now updated for Tamurkhan's Horde
  14. Games Workshop has released new and updated Age of Sigmar FAQs to accompany the release of General’s Handbook 2017. This show will focus on those Age of Sigmar FAQs and what you need to know for matched play. The Age of Sigmar FAQs not only clear up interpretation disputes, or provide extra clarity, but in some cases they completely rewrite or errata existing rules. Therefore, it is important to read them. As a result, I’m also not limiting this show to the changes introduced alongside the General’s Handbook 2017. I’ll also try to cover the key points in the FAQs which may not be known to newer matched play players. The key points that I’ll cover are: how Games Workshop has addressed stacking abilities; the changes to reinforcement points; a brief comment on deployment, movement and measurements; and the most significant army specific changes which will impact tournament play. I’m also going to use separate shows to cover: the order of activation between rerolls, modifiers, and multipliers; and allegiances, factions, and allies – especially amongst the Chaos factions; because both these topics seem to have caused much consternation online recently. Now, before we get into the heart of the show, I’d like to draw your attention to a few handy resources available on the resources section of AoS Shorts. I’ve compiled a text-searchable and indexed PDF that contains all the FAQs and Forgeworld and Compendium warscrolls – the site also has a single PDF of all the old FAQs if you need them for some reason.; I have also created an allies matrix for each Grand Alliance, so you can easily see who allied with whom; and finally, I started a thread on TGA to compile new questions that people have regarding the new rules. So check it out and add your own question if something is not clear. Check out the rest of the show here: https://aosshorts.com/age-of-sigmar-faqs/
