February 2024 review

Welcome to march, and a march it was.

I was able to finish book 20 of the Horus Heresy Audiobooks, which covers multiple stories on the Primarch ... and I was a bit surprised how much of a prick Johnson can be, but moved on to the next book, Fear to Tread, covering Sanguinus and the Blood Angels. Already about 25% through and with some hobby time on the weekend, will progress further.

The next shipment from Stormbringer arrived and we updated the overview, and will provide an unboxing like we did with issues 01 to 03. Of course the content will be part of the Warcry coverage.


Age of Sigmar Stormbringer – Kruleboyz Warcry Warband

We did it once - we do it again. Building a Warcry warband from the Stormbringer Magazine contents. As we started with the Stormcasts Eternals miniatures from the first three issues, we now build a small warband from the Kruleboyz from the same batch.

For this we need issue #01 and #02 from Stormbringer, covering a hero and a pack of 10 gutrippaz. And to build the Warcry warband, we need the Harbinger of Destruction PDF, where the rules for the Kruleboyz are included.

Age of Sigmar Stormbringer – Warcry Stormcast Warband

As mentioned in the last article, we're building a Stormcast Warcry warband from the Stormbringer Magazine content and we're already able to muster a small one with the first few issues (actually two, if you use the Kruleboyz as well).

With the content of issue #1 and #3, we have six miniatures and we're going to build Vindictors and the Knight Arcanum. The instructions are included in the booklets, all models are push-fit (but I'd recommend using glue) and come with 40mm round bases.

January 2024 review

So that was January. Mixed weather, mixed health, put a check on it and continue.

We didn't do a Kick Off on the blog like last year, basically because I didn't have the time to come around to it. The month began busy with the very late arrival of The Old World (thanks to Brexit, the french distribution hub and UPS - woohoo). And in addition to be rushed, there is little satisfaction when the items you covered aren't even available. And that has unfortunately happened a few times now.

Anyhow, I prepared a few things for painting. Mostly small stuff, like Warmaster heroes to see what speaks to me the most, and a few Solar Auxilia for Legions Imperialis.

Age of Sigmar Stormbringer – What’s next?

In case you're starting collecting Age of Sigmar miniatures with the Stormbringer magazine series, either by buying individual issues or being a subscriber, it'll take a few months until you have enough for a full scale match of Age of Sigmar. So what to do in the meantime?

First of all, the magazines cover some rules for an entry level gaming experience, and that's - especially for newcomers - a reasonable way to start with. But if you're already familiar with wargaming that might just not be enough for the beginning. Obviously, as you are not restricted to the content of the magazines, you can just drop by your local gaming store (Warhammer or independent) and pick up some more miniatures, like a Start Collecting or Vanguard box.

Warhammer The Old World – Launch Day!

Today the product range of Warhammer The Old World is officially launched. While some might be lucky and received their items in the last days, others just received their shipping notification and a few unlucky ones that their orders have been postponed.

In my case, I just got the shipping notice tonight at 01:00 in the morning, that the map of the Old World, that I ordered even got shipped. Not my prefered way, I was looking for receiving it today or on monday and not just being shipped.

Warhammer The Old World - Map of the Old World

This is a part of the known map, that has been around since the third edition of Warhammer Fantasy, and received further information and details over the years.

Warhammer The Old World – Who are the Tomb Kings of Khemri?

We talked about, where the Bretonnians came from, and now it is time to talk about where the Tomb Kings of Khemri came from. In the early editions of Warhammer Fantasy, the undead were just generic evil, aligned with Chaos and Orcs.

You had the basic tropes, with Skeletons, Mummies, Ghouls and such. Just like you would find them in any roleplaying game bestiary. And in Warhammer Armies the undead became a play-able faction, build around a Necromantic force, that would command an army of the undead to raise and further creatures to rally around it.
