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 Underguts Mawtribe passed through the Gate of Whispers, entering Stygxx on the behest of the Flesh-eater Courts. Charged with raiding the Stormvault discovered at the Hookfort, Slaughtermaster Bufolg Bloodbelch led his Ogors from the realmgate situated on the Coast of Loss and headed inland to see what treasures awaited them…
Vandus Hammerhand himself, along with a retinue of the Hammers of Sigmar had received word of the incoming Gluttonous nomads and were guarding the Stormvault as the
The Post Masters Post
Hey all. I did say there would be one. I had planned to get this out a little sooner but needed some time to detox.
Masters 2019 was a reasonably mixed bag, with the Top 20 players for 2019 majority living in the North Island only 11 of them accepted the invite. This is not out of the ordinary, no masters event has ever been attended by more than 65% of the Top 20. However due to the nature of the event and it being in the South Island, only a single North
My bases should arrive this coming week. Until then, I build.
So far, there has been a defect in the casting of three chest pieces in the Stalker kit. One of the "stalks" breaks at the same point on each bit with even the slightest but of pressure. It stinks, but it's something I've seen in GW plastics for decades, so I'll deal with it.
That said, here is what I've been putting together the last few nights.
Battleplan: Places of Arcane Power
Total Points Played: 1520
Terrain: Random per GHB, no terrain with warscroll cards
Legion of Grief
General - Command Trait: Vassal of the Craven King
Artefact: Aetherquartz Brooch
Spell Lore: Dread Withering
Guardian of Souls

List Breakdown – Legion of Grief – NZ Masters 2019
Gidday all, Aiden here with the first “List Breakdown” for this blog. I had planned to do this the night before Masters but with me flying down tomorrow lunchtime and then likely drinking from there on out I’m not going to have the time.
New Zealand Masters 2019 is the third Masters event our country as hosted, we have had one for every full year of Age of Sigmar gameplay since the game began. I’ve attended all of
I've decided to go with resin bases instead of textured ones. I ordered them ($666 worth! Lol!), but they won't be here for a bit yet, so I'm in a bit of a holding pattern until they arrive.
In the interim, I've done another very quick color scheme that mirrors what I did in an early TK army of mine. I won't be using it for my Bonereapers, but I thought I'd share it.
Game 1: CoS (Anvilguard) - Border War Their List
I outdrop him so I decide to go first. I could see he was lining up for some endless spell shenanigans so I wanted to shut that down asap. The Crawler got an extra attack, aimed 3 at 1 Sorceress and 1 shot at another and managed to kill both of them right away. I grab the 2 middle objectives and prepare for his potential double turn.
I largely killed his plans (Vitriolic Spray + Spell Portal + Shooting) after thos
Over the years I've painted multiple undead armies, including several Tomb Kings forces. It's kinda my jam.
Then they went away.
Tomb Kings were crushed. Generic undead armies were ... well ... made 'meh.' Nighthaunts were cool but not really my giggidee. Flesh Eaters? Nah. Not really undead in my book.
Now we have Bonereapers. Utter control. Cold calculation. Enforcing of a dominating will.
This blog will journal my experience with
This first entry was an exercise in letting ago of fears and going for it. I must attribute my undertaking of this project to Age of Sigmar regulars from the Warhammer Weekly show, who, many cycles ago, made a big point of getting wild and wacky with your hobby. In particular when you've been using the guide rails of Citidal paints and the thought that you only had to paint the models that you were given.
And thus began the era of making my own models or in this case, not kit-bashing at al
Took this list to a local 2-day, 5 game competition last weekend and had a lot of fun! I didnt have any other options to run as this was a fully painted and based tournament, and I had about a week to kill myself getting these all ready. Thank goodness Arkhan was painted four years ago.
Round 1 - Three Places of Power - VS Skaventide - Major Loss
Squared off against a really good local player who brought Thanquol and three Verminlords, plus five endless spells. I already had a d

Army: Legions of Grief with Buff-o-Rama
Opponent: Regan O'Halloran - Legion of Night with Debuff Focus
Game Type: Matched Play 2000pts
Scenario: Border War 2019 (rolled at random)
We rolled out the random terrain and ended up with a healthy blend of new and old rules, with the large centerpiece terrain model and the piece next to it yielding overgrown which would have been neat if either of us had shooting attacks o
So here it is my list build around the beauty that is the Glottkin. With a few extras I painted along the way. The list I'm currently playing is
Plague Priest on Plague Furnace
40x Plague Monks
40x Plague Monks

I have currently played 2 one day tournaments placing second and fourth with a combined score of 4/2. Also won best army both times.

Finally found some time in a hectic schedule to start my Soulrender. Here is he base coated. This usually takes me the longest, since my painting speed leaves much to be desired. Now to start thinking of a name....
The two latest releases for the Battletomes are here.
I couldn't find a high resolution of the cover art, normally GW or the artist itself uploads it somewhere. Not this time, though
I'll keep looking and will update once I'm able to find them, so it can match the Battletome cover 1:1
And as a note: I restructured the Hungy/Not hungry Battle Trait of the Mawtribes. Now it immediately tells you what condition 1 is and what bonus you get for this, then the same for condition 2 (ins
I am competing in a one-day event in Wicklow this Sunday which, after a brief sojourn with the Maggotkin of Nurgle, I will use to dip my toe back into the Pestilent pool. The event will be 3 rounds, 24 players and 2000pts. The Irish AoS meta is interesting, in that there isn't one. The lads and ladies here tend to play offbeat armies, and even those damn Northies who come down to take our women and our podiums mostly bring their whackier, less optimal lists to the party. There's a significant ch
What does a fashionable gentle-rat choose when it wants to kill man-things? The choice is yours, but there are some options that are more efficient than others.

Army: Legions of Grief with Penumbral Engine
Opponent: Kyle Duncalf - Draichi Ganeth Daughters of Khaine with Morathi
Game Type: Matched Play 2000pts
Scenario: Starstrike 2019 (rolled at random)
The board yielded a large amount of varied terrain rules, including a Commanding piece that had me salivating. Naturally Kyle took this side, to my dismay. I set up my Gravesites to be spread fairly evenly with Starstrike be
AoS Reminders - v2.7.3Share Army links, Tomb Kings, and Wound Allocation phase
You can now share armies with your friends and communities via an aosreminders.com URL!
The URL is generated like so: https://aosreminders.com/?army=pZl8CrTD
Rules that are applied any time a unit takes a wound now occur in the "Wound Allocation" phase. @JohnSchramm
Previously, these types of rules were generally stored in "During Game"
I think this very nicely tidies
Back in May, I ran a small local event featuring homemade rules for playing naval battles in AoS. I received a lot of encouragement from the Narrative Play forum here, and eventually (after some tweaking from the original event) compiled my original rules with some additional naval homebrew content and photos from the event to make this book! In addition to the basic rules for playing naval battles, I've added rules for weather, naval command abilities, and specialty munitions. If you have an
Three days later, the vanguard of the army left the city under the command of Sheriff Albertus, Freeguild General of the Free Army of Montalban. With him he had the Greatswords, the Handgunners, the Demygryph Knights and some regiments of Halberdiers. A detachment of pistoliers from the mercenary company of Nimyard rode ahead of them, scouting the road. Albertus knew Captain Nimyard from the days way back and Nimyard owed Albertus a favour.
Three days a
Dead things dreaming in the darkness.
Nothing stirred in the utter blackness of the Deepknell Depths. Nothing living remained in the vast catacombs and narrow tunnels to make a sound. The last incidental collapse of rock, or old bones finally falling apart to clatter across the coarse ground, had happened decades ago. No noise sounded in a place where nothing happened, and nothing ever happened down in the dark. So they had accepted a long time ago, that it was better to simply try to stop
