  1. Hi everyone, I am retiring Hinterlands for the time being now that we have not only the fantastic AoS Skirmish but also lots of exciting fan made content being made for it too. I would like to thank everyone who supported this project, helped it grow and gave feedback along the way. The AoS community is really one of the best things about this game and why I love this hobby so much . Who knows if Hinterlands will ever come back, but for the moment I am going to keep it on the down-low. Doesn't mean you won't still be seeing me around here though . Cheers, bottle.
  2. I started creating this because my gaming group wanted to explore the Realm Master idea from the Hinterlands expansion from @bottle (Thank you dude!). The only reason I formalized it into a shareable ruleset, is because my gaming group doesn't want to play anything else but this (and a bit of shadespire). If it's good enough to get 5 busy dads to set aside a late late night every month for the last 8 months, then I hope it's good enough for you. Thank you to @Pjschard, @Red_Zeke, Aaron and Kenny for the many fun hours of rolling dice. This is from us to you! Renown Or Ruin RPG Campaign Expansion Download Four heroes take their first step towards their own legends, each shadowed by a small group of followers. Together they journey into the spired city to unlock the challenges and riches that have been entombed within. It's not gold they seek, but Relics and Artefacts of old, but even those are a means towards something greater. Even great battles will suffice in transforming them from just another fighter in armies of their homelands into great leaders whose names resonate throughout the Mortal Realms. The only path suitable to reach great Renown crosses over the pit to terrible Ruin. Renown or Ruin is run by a Realm Master (RM) who leads 1-4 players and their warbands through a setting using battleplans and roleplay, to weave stories of legend. Shape their world and challenge them to overcome Battleplan Objectives, find Relics and Artefacts, take on Quests, and make decisions faithful to the character of their Hero. Between excursions into the city of Shadespire, give them places of Respite where their followers drink, eat, share stories about the Heroes they follow, and their legend grows. When a Hero grows in Renown, more people seek to follow them. But fail in the objectives and quests you've set before them, and their followers lose faith and find someone else to believe in. Features: Warbands increase and decrease in Renown which allows the Hero to gain and lose followers. Explore a city full of ruins through simple skirmish battleplans that are instantly more fun with 3-5 people around the table. A Simple Relic hunting mechanic that gives warbands a choice to aid their party or seek treasure for themselves. Heroes and followers can wield relics and artefacts to give them buffs and abilities. Use a Warband Journal to track your player's journey of Renown 6 steps to getting your first game started without any fear! Dusk Plains Skirmish Battleplan for your first night. Master Relic Hunter Skirmish Battleplan for interesting plot hooks. Grim Exchange Respite sheet to serve as your party's first base camp. 8 Sessions, 24 hours of playtesting by 5 devoted gamers with half decent intelligence. There are so many interesting and cool expansions available for playing Skirmish in more rich and interesting ways. Renown and Ruin brings something a little bit different that I hope is worth you trying out with your gaming group. We've had a good amount of time to play and think about improving this. We need your help to make it better!
  3. Hi I can get my brain to understand this, so please tell me if I got this right: On page 36, under Map Regions, the rules state that there are three areas that is designated as Strategic Regions (marked with crossed axes). The three regions are: Eyes of the Prismatikon, The Infinity Gates and The Caverns of Fulminax. The same paragraph states that if a player controls these three Strategic Regions and has reforged The Sceptre of the Flame by spending a Build Point - that player immediately wins the campaign Right... so far I understand... On page 42, under Victory/Realm Conqueror Victory, the rules state that "A player wins the campaign immediately if they control all three Strategic Regions and have reforged The Sceptre of the Flame. See the Time of war rules for The Titanworks on page 52" Uh-huh... and moving to page 52: On page 52, under The Titanworks, it says that to Reforge the Sceptres of the Flame a player that: "controls this region [The Titanworks] and also controls The Caverns of Fulminax and The Black Iron Peninsula, can spend a Build Point to reforge The Sceptre of the Flame" Is this the case?: Can a player create The Sceptre of the Flame by controlling The Caverns of Fulminax, The Black Iron Peninsula and The Titanworks, but not The Infinity Gates and The Eyes of the Prismatikon and then need to gain control over the Strategic Regions in order to actually spend that Build Point to win the campaign? And can a player conquer only the Strategic Regions, spend a Build Point and win the campaign, without having control over the non-strategic regions mentioned regions above? I hope I made myself clear.... Have I got this right?

    Overlord Grimni "The Grim" Goldbeard is dead, leaving a seat open on the Reaper King's council. Warbands amass in Reaper to attempt to claim it, and the streets will run red with blood. This book is a 5-battleplan skirmish campaign.
  5. Let's Discuss the Firestorm Campaign.

    Anyone participated in this? I play a Tzeentch list and there are a lot of fun shenanigans to be had here. On the downside, bringing a Lord of Change in the Magebane Dungeons? Don't do it.

  7. Hey there!

  8. I've started working on a custom Hammerhal campaign, with 5 levels. However, I'm not particularly familiar with the AoS fluff and armies, so I wonder if I made any obvious mistake in laying down the background. Can anyone have a look and let me know if there's anything obviously wrong in the overall scenario? The idea is to give players a few levels to optionally stock up on gadgetry, and then hit them with the big baddies as they fight to crawl their way out. I'll probably modify the stairs placement because at the moment they're a bit random; the idea is to have a series of continuous flights plus some back-entrances. Eventually I'll type it all up in the templates others have posted, and upload it somewhere. Any help is welcome! Training Day.docx
  9. Anybody use the Open War cards to play Skirmish games yet? I'm thinking about running a Open War Skirmish campaign. Basically follow the Skirmish rules to pick your Warbands, but then add the Open War cards for the campaign missions. Randomly pick your Objective, Deployment and Twist from the deck (maybe those cards are retired from the rest of the campaign). After each game upgrade and reinforce according to the Skirmish campaign rules, but the Underdog gets to pick a Ruse card in addition to his reroll bonus. At some point, depending on how things go, the Sudden Death cards should come into play. This should even out the playing field even more than just following the Skirmish rules on their own. If nothing else, you get to play through a different campaign.

  11. In the final battle of the Big Trouble in Little Azyrheim campaign, Skragnir has the Letter of Marque in hand, and has to run a blockade of enemies between himself and Castle Reaper. This last battleplan is pretty much the same as the breakthrough battleplan in Hinterlands, but that's what we actually played at the event, so here it is. In the actual event, the end came down to a tie between Skragnir and the von Hortlaks. We used XP gained as our tie breaker, and Skragnir and his crew came out on top. Fleet Admiral Skragnir now holds a seat on the high council in the Free City of Reaper. Once my brother finishes painting his Kharadron Overlords, I can get pictures of Skragnir and his lot to populate the book, and I will release this whole thing as a proper skirmish campaign. Enjoy! Below are the exposition, parts 1-4, and the campaign rules if you're playing along.
  12. Welcome to Part 4 of Big Trouble in Little Azyrheim. We've hit the home stretch. After being betrayed by a member of his own crew, Skragnir and his Arkanauts have to survive the night hiding out in the Murderwood on the edge of town. This battleplan is a new take on an oft repeated concept. Assassins are out to kill Skragnir the Recalcitrant, who has to start in the center of the battlefield. The twist here is that the Defender gets to start off with all their models on the battlefield, but they've been spread out to stand watch. They don't know which direction the Assassins will come from, so they'll have to watch every angle! If you missed it, here are Parts 1-3, which also include the campaign rules (in Part 2) if you want to play along!
  13. Hello Folks, I just recently signed up in this forum but was reading a lot of interesting stuff here for longer. I'm one of those guys playing fantasy in "the good old days" (read: when I was in school and had plenty of time) and came back to GW games about half a year ago, immediately getting sucked back into it by the simplicity of AoS. That said, I really like the rules mechanics of this game, but I miss the somewhat "greater" picture when playing games. It feels like just a series of unrelated "let's clash our armies" games. This is the main reason behind what I want to share with you. I am working on a map based campaign that allows to put the games played in a greater context, but without requiring too much of pain to track all the progress. Right now I got a ruleset that is halfway finished. The core of my idea is fleshed out and I'm working on the actual map and the "artwork" (but I am by no way a proper designer, so it's more like collection graphics with proper license). I am posting this already in this state as I'd like to hear some feedback from you. What do you think about my rules? Do you feel they are ok in their complexity? Do you like the idea of my rules or do you disagree with them? Are there things you feel that are too strong/weak/dumb/whatever? I'm completely open to your feedback and would love to put the campaign up here once properly finished. In case any one is really interested, my files are in a git repository (tex files at the moment, but can place the Affinity Designer files there as well) so feel invited to join this. After all, if this really seems interesting to you, the end result should be open sourced for anyone to access. Thanks for reading so far, happy wargaming! Patrick Campaign.pdf
  14. In the third battle of the Big Trouble in Little Azyrheim campaign, I wanted to try something that I haven't seen in AoS before. In MERCS (a kinda' neat skirmish game that I don't quite endorse, but have had some fun playing in the past) they ran a global narrative event at one point, and one of the scenarios revolved around having a mole in your opponent's team. I liked that idea and hope that it translates well to AoS. Broken Trust is a very asymmetrical battle. The Defender has the Letter of Marque (if you're playing the campaign) or a bonus Artefact (if you're not), but also a traitor in their ranks. The Ambusher has their warband split between two battlefield edges, which could be a strength, but is definitely also a potential weakness. I had a lot of different ideas for approaching the "Traitor In Our Midst" rule. I considered having the traitor be selected at the start of the battle, and then revealed at the opportune moment. That would have been cool, because revealing the traitor at the opportune moment would be fun, but it would also involve additional book-keeping, and could lead to a lot of unpleasant traitor experiences (like the traitor having to flip early and being really badly positioned, or the traitor dying to deadly terrain before being revealed). I also considered having the traitor be random, but having the player choose when they would be revealed. Ultimately, I ended up deciding that would lend too much power to killing off weaker units so that you could increase the value of your traitor. It seemed a bit too gamey for what I wanted. I ended up settling on a random traitor at a fixed time. The benefits of that are that there isn't much meta-gaming strategy to it, but it is still predictable. If you missed it, here are Part 1 and Part 2, which also include the campaign rules if you want to play along! Crossposted from http://hivefleetcharybdis.blogspot.com/
  15. Welcome to the second installment of the Big Trouble in Little Azyrheim Campaign. Since obviously, you'll need actual campaign rules to progress from Episode 1 to Episode 2, that's what I'll be covering today. While I imagine most will use the Shadespire Campaign rules, I thought it would be good to just spit out ideas for campaign structures willy nilly because I can. So first up here are the rules. This campaign is all about the acquisition of Overlord Grimni's Letter of Marque, so that you can claim his seat on the high council. As such, I wanted the changing of hands of that Letter to be an important mechanic in the campaign at large. So the Letter of Marque must be fielded in every battle once recovered. I've got some proposed alternative campaign rules that eschew Renown Points and instead just use a simple Wounds based growth system. It's nothing fancy, but if you are looking for something different to cobble together your own campaign system, here are some ideas :). I've also included an alternative form of Underdog Boons. Instead of re-rolls, I dole out bonus Artefacts. It's an idea, and I'm not sure it's a good one, but there it is. Next, we have the campaign flowchart, which contains spoilers. You'll need this to play the campaign proper. And finally, the battleplan itself. This battleplan is all about running around and picking up pieces of the Letter of Marque so that they can be combined and made whole again. It's a weird concept, and a weird theme, but this was part of the story because the Hinterlands scenario that was originally played (at the event) was "The Lost Artefact", which involved collecting scroll fragments. Tune in next time for part 3! And here's part 1!
  16. I ran a Hinterlands event a few weekends ago (the same weekend the new Skirmish rules dropped, funny enough). I used three of the Hinterlands battleplans for it, The Lost Artefact, Assassinate, and Breakthrough. To tie it all together, I made up a story set in our local campaign setting (the Vale of Efengie) in which the players were trying to find and deliver a Letter of Marque that would grant one lucky general a seat on the Reaper King's council. Normally I bake all of the events I run together into campaign books, but I thought that this story-line would make a fun Skirmish campaign. So I've expanded it into a five battleplan campaign that I will be posting over the next week or two. Here's the first fluff page explaining the basic premise. Call it exposition if you like. In the first battleplan, two warbands arrive at the scene of Overlord Grimni's murder to investigate. I was inspired a little bit by the beginning of the Watchmen, when Rorschach is investigating the Comedian's murder. I think Grimni and whoever killed him probably had a pretty severe rumble in the wee hours of the night, and whodunnit is still a mystery (we may never know, but I assume it was a Dark Elf), but the carrion are already descending because they know that if they want his council seat, they're going to have to act fast. This is going to be a five battleplan campaign, and I plan on posting the other battleplans over the next couple weeks, and hopefully by the time I'm done posting them piecemeal, I'll have the full campaign book finished!
  17. Efengie Campaign Books

    The Skirmish Campaign rules have opened my eyes to a whole new way of playing narrative linked battles. So I've added 2-player narrative campaign rules to the campaign books I've made based on the monthly Age of Sigmar events I run. I finally feel like they are more or less complete! Each book includes five battleplans based on the Clash of Empires battleplan from Warhammer World, a Time of War, and a good chunk of fluff and pictures introducing you to the Vale of Efengie, its denizens, and their travails (along with the aforementioned 2-player campaign). The first book follows two invading forces from other Realms as they battle it out over the Vale of Efengie. The second book takes a more personal direction, and follows one army through a realmgate into Shyish on a mission to defeat death, but enemies have followed them through the gate . I hope you enjoy the books!

    The second book of the Efengie Campaign series contains 5 Battleplans based on Warhammer World's Clash of Empires framework. It also includes Time of War rules for battling at the Gates of Eucebium. But that's not all, there are also 2-player narrative campaign rules for playing the battleplans as a series of linked battles.
  19. Part 1: Prologue Thunder rumbled and echoed over the distant ragged mountain peaks that surrounded Wortbad. One of the moons pierced the heavy black clouds that rolled and writhed over them and silver light picked out the tops of tangled dead trees. The woods that filled most of the land between the Evernight Peaks and the village were dark and foreboding, even in daylight, at night they were full of terrors. Horrific things prowled the winding paths between gnarled and clawing branches. Spirits of the restless dead, flesh eating creatures, ghouls, ghasts, wolves, bats, vampires and worse. ~ ~ ~ The chill Autumn wind scoured Sorrow Fen and whipped the long coats and tattered robes of the Nachtjägers. Professor Fangmorder pulled his broad brimmed hat firmly down on his head and squinted with his one good eye through a small brass spyglass. After a few minutes of studying the boarded-up doors and windows of Wortbad and noting the numerous crude wards, made of string, twigs, bones and dried flowers hung from door and window frames, he closed the spyglass with a click. He turned to Grimming and nodded sombrely. “It is as ve feared. The willage is deserted again and looks wery much like it vas overrun by Deadwalkers recently.” he said with a heavy Harrowmark accent. Grimmig took a long breath, as if to ready himself. The Shaman-Priest hefted his grandhammer and said “Den dere is da Holy vork of Sigmork to be done!” with fury in his eyes. ~ ~ ~ Godfather Viktor and I are about to start a five game campaign for the Halloween season. In the past we have always aimed to play a themed game to celebrate Halloween but for lots of reasons they have never happened. This year we decided to play a mini campaign over a few weeks to make sure the seasonal game takes place, even if we can't play on the 31st of October itself!
  20. Greetings everyone, I have something to share with you all today which is very special to me as I have put a lot of work into this. I present my gaming supplement for Age of Sigmar titled: Hinterlands: Skirmish Campaigns in the Mortal Realms - Version 1 Here are some screenshots of what to expect: This is a supplement to play narrative skirmish games in Age of Sigmar, and I've tried to make it look like the real deal. Enclosed you will find not one, but two campaign systems outlined. The first (titled 'The Hinterlands Campaign') is akin to Mordheim or Frostgrave. Players can create a Warband of a dozen models and battle it out for treasure, gaining skills and experience but also running the risk of injury and death on the way. The rules for the Hinterlands Campaign are 4 pages long. Just like the core rules. This is not meant to be Mordheim transplanted into AoS, but a skirmish system that embraces everything I love about Age of Sigmar. You'll find Battletraits, Artefacts, and Time of War rules all have a place in the system. On top of that, the book also introduces a second way to play; the Realm Master Campaign. The Realm Master Campaign is an additional 2 pages of rules (plus a custom battleplan to set your imagination off) and details how to run an RPG set in the Mortal Realms. It is akin to D&D or Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, but is a simple system set firmly in Age of Sigmar at the same time. I would love to know your feedback and thoughts on the rules contained. And if you want to use them, please do! This is what they are here for! I plan to work on this book further by adding in a hobby section with example Warbands and also a Warband Roster to help manage your games. If you have any more ideas please let me know.

  21. Behold the Neverending Host

    Deep within the Whispering Shadow Mountains lies the Cavern of Eternal Rebirth. It's secrets hide far from the prying eyes of beings great or small and, from crystalline depths, hordes pour forth through realmgates to spread chaos across the worlds. Not only mortals threaten all they encounter. The curtain that holds back the Realm of Chaos is thin here, perhaps thinner than any other place. Daemons of types innumerable join the ranks of the five Gods they serve, spreading their joyous bile, change, blood, treachery and pleasure. The floor of the cavern lies close to the magma that sits beneath, intolerable heat seeping up to bathe its denizens. They themselves, of all Gods and none, share one common trait. Their skin is as red as the lava below. Constant war takes place between the factions of the orders of chaos. The floor is strewn with their broken trophies from rivals and sallies into the mortal realms. But perhaps the darkest secret of the cavern is that every time a warrior or daemon meets its demise, another will grow from the deepest recesses of the magma pools. Is this the very foundation of chaos itself? This is the foundation of my project that will probably take several years to come to fruition; if indeed it ever does. Each set of servants of the chaos Gods will have a section of the cavern that will take up a two by two tile. The idea is to create an entire gaming board with armies to match. Each part will reflect the nature of the God they worship. My starting point is to use a Slaves to Darkness force that can fit into any of the separate forces, hence the unifying red skin and armour developed from the stuff of the cavern itself. It will begin by joining with a Tzeench force being developed for the summer campaign at my club, the Pompey Pirates. First step 500 points. A massive undertaking which will probably, in honour of Tzeench, change as I go along. But who wants to think small and besides, I will end up with several armies to play games with. The new skirmish system I have heard about will be my friend with this too, with small bands roving the depths and issuing forth. Paul Twitter @ugluk1974 Neverending Horrors pour forth....
  22. So, last year we had 5 books for the realmgate wars campaign: might battles, quest for ghal maraz, balance of power, godbeasts and allgate. This year we are entenring april and not a world about a campaign. Will there be one at all?
  23. Me and a few mates have never played AOS before and thinking of picking it up and building 2000pt armies. What were looking into doing is some kind of ongoing campaign where we can build our armies up whilst playing over say the next 6 months. One game a month where we have a deadline of either a certain points or certain troop types built and painted ready to play. Similar to white dwarfs tale of four warlords. Just wondering if any of you guys have attempted this successfully and any tips and help with suggestions of game types for different points levels and views on doing it points or specific units? If i can create something with a ongoing narrative for it aswell will be a bonus. As a bit of a guide these are the armies 3 of us have picked - Nurgle mortal, death and a Sylvaneth army. Cheers
