Narrative Update: Beastclaw Raiders
Vorkar Bloodice, Ice-Prince of the Bloodice Alfrostun, treads the realms as an avatar of winter's fury. Where he walks, the ground shakes, and his Stone-Skeletal mount, Jaergund, is feared throughout the duardin of the Caengan Lodge. Travelling from Ulgu to Ghyran via the Gate of Shades, he intends to reach the Unhallowed Wastes, gathering followers as he does so, and destroying all who stand in his path.
Vorkar Bloodice, Frostlord on S
So I've just started a Path To Glory with several other players: it takes place in the Unhallowed Wastes of Ghyran, a rare section of tundra in the realm of life.
There are about 8 warbands:
Khorne- Chaos Lord on manticore, wrathmongers, chariot
Tzeentch- Shaman, 20 tzaangors, 20 kairic, 3 enlightened
Nighthaunt- Wight king, hexwraiths, cairn wraith, spirit hosts, 2 GP
LoN- Mannfred, dire wolves, varghiests
LoS- Vhordrai, necromancer
Just a quick update from me today, I just wanted to delve deeper into one of the additions to The Plains of Crystal Sands: The Screaming City.
This was once a proud and noble city, hosting one of the only purely female stormhosts. However, when the Hooded Priest was awoken (a character I'll talk about later), all its residents were transformed into Nighthaunt spirits via the Curse of Tears, and the resident stormhost, into Banshees. The city gets its name from the periodic screaming and wai
I've begun to design a map campaign for a gaming group, and decided to include Uzalith, the Ravaged City. While designing the first part of it, I began to think about how absolutely vast the Age of Sigmar setting is: if each realm is the size of a planet, and their are nine of them, the scope is huge. So, I set myself, my gaming group and, potentially. the TGA forum a challenge: to begin to flesh out one of the realms, or, at least, part of one. So here is the PDF, it has Uzalith and the Screami
I’ve been working on some Tzeentch scenery: specifically, the tzaangor equivalent of a herd stone. In the Disciples of Tzeentch battletome, it mentions that Tzaangor warflocks use them to harness the magical energy of the locale, and use it to further the cults position. The obelisks were sculpted, and the three pillars are from a Lord of the Rings set.
These aren’t quite finished, I’m going to tidy up the dry brush. Thanks for looking!
So I’m soon to start work on constructing the Herald of the Purple Flame, Xenthos himself.
The plan is to convert him out of a Ghorgon, Tree Lord or something like that. I’m leaning towards the Ghorgon, as it’s cheaper, larger and you get loads of spare bits. It also has hooved feet, which works well with Tzeentch iconography. I’m hoping to sculpt weapons, either sculpt or convert a suitable head and chop off the wings from a plastic eagle or vulture and stick them on its back.
So I just got Shadespire, and truth be told I think it’s one of the best board games I’ve ever played, certainly the best of those made by Games Workshop.
Unfortunatly, it had one large flaw. Khorne. So I set about to change this. With the help of some clippers, spare bits from the Kairic Acolytes set and a fair bit of glue, I kit bashed some Tzeentch Shadespire warriors.
So from left to right:
Fars’ere the Flame-Ridden: The leader of the warband, Fars’ere was born over a b
So, as you probably know from last post, I'm going to The Wonders of the Algoraxi, a tournament at Warhammer World, in March. Although it is mainly a narrative event, you need three different army lists: 750, 1000 and 2000. Here goes.
Tzaangor Shaman - General, Arch-Sorcerer, Windthief Charm, Glimpse the Future, Bolt of Tzeentch, Shield of Fate, Treason of Tzeentch
Tzaangors - 10, Pair of Savage Blade: 10
Tzaangors - 10, Pair of Savage Blade
So I'm heading off to a tournament at Warhammer World - The Wonders of the Algoraxi. Here's what the PDF had to say about it:
"The shadow of war stretches far across the Flamescar Plateau. This expansive region of the Realm of Fire has been conquered and lost many times since the Age of Myth, and its hidden treasures still draw the eyes of warlords and champions from across the Mortal Realms. Many thousands of years ago, the magocracy known as the Algoraxi Empire dominated vast swathes of t
I was reading through the DoT battletome, and came across this guy:
Is it me or is this the ULTIMATE daemon prince?
So I incorporated some of his backstory into mine... Essentially the fluff about him is the preamble to the Children of Xenthos.
After thousand of years of having El'an'zeth standing guard over Uzalith, t he great library-city was eventually attacked by the Thunder-Wrought, a Stormhost of Azyr. By then, almost all of Uzalith had felt the power and strength of '
