About this blog

This is going to be a general platform for me discussing all things lore, whether that be tied to an army release or some snippet of the background I want to comment on. Maybe even some pretentious analytical essays, because the road to legitimacy for any hobby/medium is deconstructive criticism. 

Hopefully, this sort of nerdy 'shouting into the void' has passing entertainment value to somebody.

Stormcast Eternals and the Nietzschean 'Ubermensch'

Stormcast Eternals and the  Nietzschean 'Ubermensch'    This is a piece about Warhammer and Nietzsche, pertaining particularly to his concept of the Ubermensch. I quite enjoy Nietzsche (not the same as always agreeing with him). And while I actually do think there is a case for quite a few of his takes (Genealogy of Morals and Anti-Education are important works with a lot of merit as anti-establishment dissent), I'm uncertain about his concept of the "ubermensch", the Niet

Satirical Simulacrum, The Bullet AoS Lore Dodged

The Satirical Simulacrum, The Bullet AoS Lore Dodged    The following is a topic I've ruminated on my the precarious mechanics of 40k' as satire, but some Reddit bickering about female space marines crystalized my thoughts. While I like all of GW's IPs, 40k has always been my least favourite. Part of this is just preferring swords to guns, but I'm also put off by the fascist, racist, sexist (grimdark is wall-to-wall 'ist') Imperium of Man, the seeming 'protagonists', compared to the co

Saalacious Speculaation about a Slaanesh release

Saalacious Speculaation about a Slaanesh release

SLAANESHI SPECULATION: A Fan Unit & Lore Wishlist This is a slight remix of some other posts I've written about Slaanesh, compiled as my overall 'pitch' for the direction I want the faction to take. Slaanesh is overall my fave faction in Warhammer, as I find their philosophical and existential potential immediately fascinating, more so than the other chaos gods (though I like them too). The following post will aim to explore some of those facets and, hopefully, demonstrate how they

Please GW, can I have some Maw? Ogor Wishlist

Please GW, can I have some Maw? Ogor Wishlist

I'm on a real wishlisting kick at the moment (avoiding coursework, you know how it is). I put together a Duardin future release speculation thread, and it made me think of a faction with similar problems: Ogors. Ogres, with their hungry boi Sumo Mongol aesthetic, were my first army; my first love in WFB. On the current webstore, there are two substantive Ogor factions: Beastclaw Raiders (with a book that is universally considered to be weak) and Gutbuster (without any). Should they be

Wazzock Wishlist: A Future Duardin Release

Wazzock Wishlist: A Future Duardin Release

Hey all. In my first blog post, I want to concentrate on 'faction release' ideas, so I'll be talking about lore as it pertains to new models and story direction for the faction. Ruminating on how to fix the mess that is the state of the Duardin disunion, I came up with an idea for two releases to bring them into line. Based on Skaven and FEC, it seems future AoS releases will comprise of at least a book, terrain and endless spells. Below are my ideas for revitalizing the factions with as li
