Warhammer: Age of Sigmar – the end of my hobby

Have you ever gotten really invested in a TV series, maybe even bought t-shirts, mugs etc. to let everyone know you’re proudly affiliated; only for it to come to an abrupt end, leaving you thinking “well now what am I going to do with my life…?” That’s how I feel about Warhammer. Only, instead of …

A Tale of Many Gamers

FINALLY… and a good long while after I said I’d be posting more Hobby-related things; I’m going to be doing something worthy of note! At my local gaming establishment and emporium of geekery, Gamerz Nexus, I’ll be taking part in a Tale of Many Gamers campaign for Warhammer Fantasy, as popularized by White Dwarf magazine. …

Review: The Great Betrayal

The Great Betrayal by Nick Kyme My rating: 4 of 5 stars I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that Nick Kyme is singularly gifted at writing from the dour a dutiful perspective of the dawi. This is yet another example of a gripping read that not only provides a metric bucketload of fluff for …

Are “Casual” and “Competitive” Gaming Styles Mutually Exclusive?

We’ve all come across them: the people who take their games to a serious level, and for whom losing is never an option. This can be incredibly annoying to those who play against them and aren’t of like mind, but can also make a game more challenging (and ultimately more enjoyable….?) This post mainly concerns players of …

Review: Iron Company

Iron Company by Chris Wraight My rating: 4 of 5 stars After reading Reiksguard, the first in the Empire Army series, I was dead-set on continuing on to the second book (whatever it may be). When I found out that it followed the story of an engineer of Nuln on campaign, I knew immediately that …

Empire Army List No. 2 – For Sigmar! (2250pts)

Following on from my previous post, the following army has a slightly more religious feel to it. Inspired in no small amount by the awesome new War Alter model; I wanted to create an army of hacky-smacky-whacky wrath, but on a points budget that the average gamer could use in-store, at tournaments and so on. …

Nuln Empire Army No. 1 (3000pts)

As I’m sure many of my fellow wargamers are, I’m incredibly happy with the new Empire army book released for Warhammer Fantasy. I’ve been scribbling away a few different armies with different themes and styles, but haven’t really shared anything with anyone. Then I remembered that most useful of inventions, Google Docs! I’ve decided that …

Review: Reiksguard

Reiksguard by Richard Williams My rating: 5 of 5 stars From stumbling, bickering novices to elite warriors of the Empire fuelled by the righteous might of Sigmar; this book follows the lives of a handful of soldiers as they become honourable Reiksguard knights, personal guard of the Emperor. Not to mention some mayhap, intrigue and …

Review: Brunner the Bounty Hunter

Brunner the Bounty Hunter by C.L. Werner My rating: 4 of 5 stars The only thing that stopped me giving this book a 5-star rating was some of the repetition and unimaginative wordplay; the story itself is one of the best I’ve ever read. There are those out there who are hesitant to begin reading …

Mordheim: Reikland Marksman

Reiklander Warband One of the warbands I’ve written for my current Mordheim campaign is a Reiklander ‘Hit Squad’, comprising some marksmen and just enough muscle to stop them from being hit on the head by nasty rat-things. My primary Empire army in Warhammer hails from the city of Nuln; where even the whitest of uniforms …
