  2. Hey everyone! I’m not Chuck, but he invited me to share some of my thoughts for today’s post. In the past few weeks, I’ve enjoyed some quality time watching distant AoS events. All from the comfort of my living room. And I want to take a few moments to highlight some of the media coverage of a few recent events. View the full article

    Waaaghpaca 2019 Tournament Recap

    Hey Everyone! Today I want to wrap up my Waaaghpaca 2019 coverage by going through all five of the exceptional games I played while I was at the event. There was a large variety of lists being run at the event and while there was plenty of lists capable of taking five games the overall event felt very relaxed and focused on community and the hobby. The spirit of the game was, without a doubt, the focus more so then crushing faces for the sake of a win. As I said before it was a fantastic event and I encourage everyone to consider going at least once in their wargaming career. Be sure to check out my overall impressions of the event in my earlier post this week, but now, on to the games! View the full article

    Waaaghpaca 2019 Event Impressions

    Hey Everyone! I recently attended the legendary event known as Waaaghpaca and today I wanted to share some of my adventure to the frigid north known as Wisconsin. Waaaghpaca is an event I have only heard about through numerous podcasts over the years and it has been on my list of "must attend" events for a while now. I finally committed to making the trek to roll dice, meet up with some good friends, make some new ones, and experience Waaaghpaca first hand. It was very much an adventure full of travel issues, approaching storms, polar vortexes, and impending doom. I managed to survive, barely, but when I look back at the event I can say without a doubt the event was well worth attending. While the trek might be tough for those living outside the Midwest I want to encourage anyone thinking about attending this event to make the trip. You will not be disappointed! View the full article

    How has Warhammer Helped You?

    Hey Everyone! I know I promised Waaaghpaca coverage today (well yesterday as this post is a day late), but I have come down with a bit of the flu and in order to make sure I give the proper amount of energy towards my coverage I opted for a different topic today. A few days ago the Warhammer TV Facebook Page put up a post titled "How Has Warhammer Helped You?" which is the type of topic I simply love. At the time of this post, the thread has over 1000 comments with gamers sharing their stories. It is well worth a read through if you have the time. Today I wanted to share a bit of how Warhammer has helped me a encourage all of you to share your stories either here or on the original thread over on Facebook. View the full article

    Hey Everyone! I am home from Waaaghpaca 2019 and am resting from all the fun and the traveling.

Cancon, The Uk Masters, and Waaaghpaca all looked to be an excellent time full of great people playing Age of Sigmar and the results were fun to see and scrutinize. Check out the results below and be sure to come back Thursday when I begin posting about my experience at Waaaghpaca. View the full article

    The Hobby Table 1-22-19

    Happy Tuesday everyone! If you missed my Twitter and Instagram post yesterday you might have been wondering what happened to my Monday Community All-Gates post. As you may recall I have been looking at my content schedule and future changes to what I put out. This week begins the first change were I scale back the blog a bit to twice a week in order to free up more time for more YouTube content and my upcoming Podcast. You can now expect regular blog posts on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday will be either a Hobby Table post or a Community All-Gates post and the Thursday slot will be my usual Editorial and or opinion pieces that have traditionally been on Friday. This is only the start of some great things on the way! View the full article

    Road to Waaaghpaca 2019

    Hey Everyone! Waaaghapaca 2019 is only a week away and today I wanted to share what I have done to prepare for the event as well as the army I am taking to the event. It took a while for my excitement for the event to truly ramp up, but it has fully kicked in and were a week ago I was dreading the 11-hour drive I am now less stressed about it and just stocking up on a few audiobooks to get me through. After the drive, it will be a weekend of fun with some friends rolling dice! I am also planning on doing a lot of coverage of my time at the event over on my Instagram. The platform is great for quick snippets from the day's events so be sure to head over there and follow me so you don't miss a single moment of the fun! View the full article

    The Hobby Table : 1-16-19

    Hey Everyone! I hope you have had a good week full of gaming, painting, and dice rolling since the last Hobby Table. While I haven't been doing a ton of actually painting lately I have been keeping busy with other hobby-related items. The biggest bit was finally clipping all the extra bits from the stack of sprues I had piled below my hobby desk. It felt great clearing up all that space, but it was one of the least exciting hour and a half I have had in a while. It is a necessary task that reinforced my commitment to clip the bits as I build kits as opposed to saving the task for a few years down the road. Now on to the rest of the week which was much more exciting! View the full article

    Community All-gates : 1-14-19

    Hey Everyone! Welcome to the "Community All-gates", the weekly feature on The Realm Gate Blog where every Monday I plan to highlight something or someone from around the Age of Sigmar and Miniature Painting Community. It might be an Event, a YouTube Channel, Blog, Army List, Model, Hobby Project, or anything else that catches my eye. Today I wanted to spotlight a recent video posted by Anthony Margo (AoS Coach). The video deep dives into the Daughters of Khaine with a few of the most devoted of Morathi, Hayden Walker and Sam Morgan. It is an excellent video that looks at alternative builds than the typical 60+ Witch Aelf lists. While I run Hordes of Witch Aelves I am keen to get into other play styles of the army in the coming year and their insight on the topic was excellent. View the full article

    Evolving your Army Narrative

    Hey Everyone! Today I want to talk about growing and evolving the narrative around your army through your games, painting, and hobby in general. It is very easy to feel the pull to jump into the latest release and start a new army. The models are always fantastic and it is exciting seeing how the army lore fits into the grand picture of the worlds we know and love. Sometimes jumping into a new army is entirely the right thing to do, but other times it might be because you are bored with your current army playstyle, models, or their lack of new lore. How can you prevent boredom from developing? By creating, even a small, lore for your army and its heroes! View the full article

    The Hobby Table : 1-9-19

    Happy Wednesday everyone! It has been a light week for me regarding hobby, but it really feels like the calm before the storm as my content plans begin to come together for 2019. Later this week I will begin recording Episode 1 of the new Strength Hammer Podcast with my good friends Neil, Matt, and Sean as we talk all things Warhammer, Hobby, and Fitness. Once it is released I will do an accompanying blog post to give a bit more insight into the concept and the "why" of the podcast. I am very excited to begin this new content and see where it goes!
