Welcome to the second part of our list-tech series, wherein I explore the dark apertures of a mind so insidious, even the Lords of Chaos can’t come up with lists as broken as his. I refer of course to the mystical augur we know only as ‘Jim’.
Jim comes up with thematic, non-legacy lists that we haven’t yet seen from the international tournament scene, or at least are not as prominent as we feel they could be.
Last time we looked at a badass, Dragon-Riding ‘A(e)lfa Strike’ list. You can
Despite the simple core rules, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is a deep and complex wargame, with most of the complexity found in the unit rules, or ‘warscrolls’. Metagame-defining combos are still being discovered, hidden in plain sight within (and between) the hundreds (and hundreds) of warscrolls available.
Here in the land of Tron we have access to the ‘Rain Man’ of the Age of Sigmar, a mysterious figure known only as ‘Jim’. Jim has a sixth sense at finding combos, and I wanted to start a ser
I have always wanted to recapture some of that hobby magic from my formative years. As much as I love the kits GW are bringing out these days, I have always hankered after those classic figures from the 4th edition Undead book.
I am fortunate in that I have been able to make a start on collecting this 'classic range', and I look forward to being able to share my progress.
These models are from the era that I started getting into the hobby. I spent a lot of time wishing I had these mode
A review of the results and general awesomeness of the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar event at the Wellington Warlord's Call To Arms convention.
We had 11 entrants and one ringer player, making it one of the biggest events at Call To Arms.
Unfortunately my tournament software failed me on the day, after using it successfully at several previous events. Luckily I had a backup spreadsheet handy, which worked very well. I tend to play at events as well as organise, so luckily this method wasn't
The Wellington Warlord's annual gaming event Call To Arms is this weekend, and they were kind enough to let us run Warhammer as one of the events on offer. We ended up with 11 entrants (plus one ringer player), and it has been great to meet with all the new players (over the internet so far, but in person this weekend) and share in their enthusiasm in the build-up to this event.
For some it will be their first tournament, and for others it will be their first games of Warhammer: Age of Sigm
NICON 2016, less than a week to go - final touches are being made to armies, rules packs are being printed, scenarios are being scrutinised. Tournament week can be intense times!
We finalised our field for the Age of Sigmar event last week, with a total of 8 players. I am encouraged by this number, as I had about 16 express interest but unable to make if for the weekend. Some would have to have travelled quite far, and some couldn't commit to the two days. I think future events will take th
With our North Island Gaming Convention just around the corner, it is time to make the hard choices about what to bring in order to sow death and reap souls in the name of the Great Necromancer.
Here are my thoughts about what I'm bringing, what my overall strategies will be, and how I arrived to those decisions.
NICON Army Composition
At NICON we will be using the SCGT players pack, with the exceptions that we are allowing all legacy warscrolls, and that the pool choice restricti
Over the weekend I had the privilege of playing in one of the best games of Warhammer this side of Morrsend.
We played using no points (the brief was to literally bring what we liked), and no extra rules restrictions or modifications other than what was clarified in the recent FAQs.
The scenario was of course Convergence of Fate, which we only adjusted to make better deployment zones, and removed the extra re-rolls for Vow of Enmity.
The battle took place in one of the Underworld
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
