    The Hag!

    By Eevika

    The Troggoth Hag is definitely a piece I believe every Troggoth army needs. It's amazing as a model and amazing on the table. I rarely do such detailed eyes and faces but when working on a model that is the centrepiece of your army you want to spend some extra time just to make it special. This is surely the best work I have ever done on a models face and I think there is just a lot of character and emotion on the model.  My smaller Troggoths are just green and blue but for t

The Adventure Thus Far, and a Convergence of Fate

I've been gathering my army of Death since before the End Times. Out of context, reading that sentence back makes me sound quite epic. But within the hobby, I am sure I'm not the only one. For me it started with Nagash, my all time favourite special character, and has now grown to encompass the Dark Lord of Despair and his Deathrattle Horde - the Doomed Legion. It has been an absolute pleasure getting back to the nitty-gritty (mostly gritty) of an Undead army. I enjoyed my army fr

Work Begins

By popular demand, a project blog of the building of my new man shed.   Somehow (I'm already confused as exactly how, though I'm not questioning) in the recent past, I persuaded my wife to agree, as part of a whole garden rejig, to allow me to rebuild my man shed.  We moved house a couple of years back and I was lucky enough to find myself the proud owner of a 30ft shed/garage.  Apparently, the previous owner had built it specially to house his boat.  Fun nerdy times were had, but it quickl

Fyreslayer Army

Ok so many moons ago, there were some awesome dwarf models called doomseekers.  Longbeards will remember them fondly I am sure. Well they had been sat gathering dust on my shelf for far too long, and when I saw the Hearthguard bezerkers, I thought maybe I had found a use for them.  So my project began.  I kit bashed some Vulkite Bezerkers along with the spares from my Auric Hearthguard to fill out the unit into 10 models.  They actually fitted in pretty well, no noticeable scale issues

Stormcast army in a week - progress report

This weekend I'm going to the Throne of Skulls at warhammer world.  My original plan was to take my death army with me, however sure to the more narrative and fun orientated nature of the event I felt it was the wrong choice (it's set up as a very competitive list). I was struggling to work out what to take instead when I remembered on Friday that I'm not limited to one grand alliance, just to 30 models.  I decided to do a force inspired by the Josh Reynolds audio dramas. Writing the l

What is Balance of Power?

I will begin with saying SPOILERS!!!! as I will be discussing parts of the recent Balance of Power book for Age of Sigmar. I have recently completed my first read through of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: The Realmgate Wars (book 2) Balance of Power.  The book moved the story ever forward as we have been promised with the new Game and The Mortal Realms are as exciting as ever, but this time around there was more focus on the gods of the realms. In the realm of Life Alarielle is continuing he

The Reiksguard Eternals

For Empire! For Sigmar! When Age of Sigmar released I knew I would be picking up the starter set.  Not for a love of either army (in fact I would trade the Bloodbound for some Dark Elf models), but to support the new game system.  What I did not expect was that I would begin to love the Stormcast models.  After listening to the audio dramas it gave me fresh insight and new appreciation to the army. When deciding on how to paint my Stormcast I went with a theme I created back when Paint Hamme

Never Kneel....

The Tomb Kings are exiting the scene and it is indeed a sad day.  While they will be around the gaming tables for a while to come the lack of support from Games Workshop means they will most likely fade away at some point.  Lost somewhere between The World That Was and The Mortal Realms. The models may be going away, but The Tomb Kings cannot ever be fully forgotten.  Nagash appears to be permanently ingrained within the Age of Sigmar Lore and he is surrounded in the Mythos of The Tomb Kings.

Basing in the Age of Sigmar

My original plan for this weeks post was to talk about my "top secret" Age of Sigmar Aelf army, but while working on said army today I began thinking about rebasing and base sizes.  That train of thought gripped me to the point I decided to make this post about my thoughts on the subject. Remember when this picture dropped? Many people have rebased an old Fantasy Army or are currently in the process of doing so.  Some are using inserts while others are clipping models from their old squares

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The End Times

The End times had begun.   The great necromancer Nagash was born again and the world would never be the same... I was excited when The End Times kicked off and rushed to secure a copy and jump right into the story.  I was enjoying the battles and the intrigue as I read through my copy and then it happened.  Eltharion The Grim was killed.  That was when I knew something was different.  It was when I began to hold my breath for what was to come and found myself clinging to hope as my favori

Welcome to The Realm Gate Blog!

Welcome to The Realm Gate Blog where I will be bringing you my thoughts and ramblings on Warhammer Age of Sigmar (and probably Fantasy and 40k from time to time).  Join me as I add my voice to the community (as an amateur and very new blogger). This box is where it all began for me in earnest.  I received it as Christmas gift from my folks after showing interest in the game at my local shop.  It wasn't my first model kit, but it is where I finally began to understand the scope of this ho
