Orks! Orks! Orks! Orks! Back at my old LGS in St. Louis, they’d hold quarterly used gaming auctions. The miniatures day ones always ran long. I remember it being 3am or so, with still plenty of items yet to go, Dave (the auctioneer and owner of the shop) would just hold up some Orks and [&helli...

Seems that J.K. Rowling isn’t the only one that can create a book of beasts set in their setting. Ok, so Godbeasts isn’t just a book of monsters, but is a new supplement for Age of Sigmar that has a bunch of new things inside it for the game. But still, it was the first […]...

Well, the “good guys” have gotten some new minis recently for Age of Sigmar. In order to keep a nice balance, that means the bad guys should get some new figures. Well, we don’t have any dragons yet, but we do have the new Gorechosen Champions you can put in your orders for....

The Stormcast Eternals are, basically, the “Good guys” in Age of Sigmar. They’re the main force who is fighting against the seemingly endless hordes of Chaos that look to sow… well… chaos everywhere, bringing… umm… chaos across the planes. Well, when just bei...

Cold and flu season might be coming to an end here in the Northern hemisphere, but the plague will soon be spreading out of Nottingham. There’s new Skaven bundles available to pre-order from Games Workshop, along with new novel and Battletome (thats the Age of Sigmar version of a Codex)....

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve gotten something from the fantasy side of Forge World. Most of their releases tend to focus more on the sci-fi side of things. But such is not the case today. Age of Sigmar is getting a new mini in the form of Skaarac the Bloodborn. And he’s certa...

While I know most of the country is colder than it is here in Atlanta, that’s not to say that it’s not cold here in Atlanta. People are looking for ways to keep warm. I’m guessing, though, if everyone had themselves a giant dragon-thing named a Magmadroth, we’d be able to stay...

Any my axe! And My axe! and my Axe! And My AXE! Well, let’s just say that if you feel your Age of Sigmar forces are lacking in axes, now is the time you can remedy that by getting some new Dwarf miniatures that are available for pre-orders over in the Games Workshop webshop....

Sometimes starting out a new game can be rough. You’re not entirely sure where to begin. What models should you get? What constitutes a good core of a new force? If you and your friend want different factions, what’s a good way to make sure you both end up with something roughly equivalen...

The force of Chaos are getting themselves some more tools to spread their ideologies across the land in Age of Sigmar. As big as he might be, the Everchosen of Archaon can’t do everything himself. So he’s getting himself some swift-hooved helpers in the form of the Varanguard....

While the rules of Age of Sigmar might be up for debate about their merit, the sculpting capabilities of Games Workshop really aren’t up for debate. They’ve really gone all-out for this one, I have to say. You can now order Archaon Everchosen over in their webshop....

Or is it Friday Snippets, because I have the day off tomorrow? (and hopefully you do, too) Either way, it’s some bite-sized stories before we have lots more bites tomorrow for Thanksgiving. And yes, I really am as jazzed about the holiday as it seems. Anyway, today’s bites include: Lead A...

Well, Age of Sigmar is changing a bit more terminology. You can do that sort of thing when the universe explodes and you get to make a new one. So the Lizardmen are no more. However, in their place are the Seraphon. They even use the same models and everything. Though some of the names […]...

So, what sort of monstrosity do you think you would need to have in order to control chaos? Well, for Age of Sigmar, you’d need some sort of hulking brute who would just pick up and throw any dissenters towards the enemy. Perhaps someone with a really huge axe and even a braided beard that [&he...

Historically, armies weren’t really known for their stealth. A couple thousand soldiers marching together, with trumpets, drums, banners, and all other sort of kit doesn’t generally go unnoticed by others. In fact, they’d make it a point to stand out. Maybe by putting on a big, flas...

You are the wind beneath my wings! And you’d need a lot of wind to keep these guys airborn. And I’m not sure how aerodynamic those wings that they have really are. There’s not a lot of surface area. Oh well, I’m sure a wizard did it. Anyway, several new airborn troops are avai...

An army’s gotta have a leader. Otherwise, you just have an unruly mob. A highly-armed unruly mob. Way at the head of the Sigmaran army is the Celestant-Prime. This figure is now available to order from Games Workshop....

Back here in the office after Gen Con. Hopefully you, too, are getting back into the regular swing of things. I know I could use another day or so to rest, but the news doesn’t stop and that means I can’t, either. For example, there’s a new set of Paladins available to pre-order fro...

Age of Sigmar seems to be getting an overall positive response. No, it’s not for everyone. But it seems just about all my friends have ended up with at least a starter set. That includes players who haven’t really played much in the way of Games Workshop games before. Well, a new set of t...

We’ve had the Age of Sigmar rules for a couple days now. It seems to be dividing the gaming community pretty heavily. Some aren’t very happy with the new rules, while others thing it brings back some of the “campy fun” of Games Workshop days gone by. Well, for those that like ...
