Legions of Nagash- Halloween Update

As it’s Halloween today, it seems fitting to post an update on the Legions of Nagash ebay rescue project. I’ve made a bit of hobby progress since my previous update and though it’s a grim, rainy day here, I’ve taken some photos of the units I’ve been working on. Please note everything shown in this post is unfinished, though after getting base colours down and some washes, we can see the aesthetic direction the force is moving towards.

Biostrip 20- Thoughts after stripping an army.

The tub!

There are a number of reasons why you may decide to strip the paint off some miniatures. Perhaps you just got yourself a “Pro-painted” army from E-bay and can’t bare to look at the pigment clogged faces. Perhaps you found some miniatures you painted when you where less skilled and want to have another crack at them. Perhaps you just screwed up. Whatever the reason, at some point in your hobby, chances are you will want to get the minis back to bare plastic. There are a number of ways to go about doing this, however for the purpose of this post we will be discussing a product called “Biostrip 20”.

A.O.S Cities of Sigmar- List Tweaking for the glory of Sigmar!

To me, the Freeguild Greatswords are one of the coolest looking unit choices in the cities of sigmar range. What are essentially fantasy landsknecht soldiers, these guys pack one hell of a punch and look fancy doing it. 2 attacks base, 3+ to hit and 3+ to wound with -1 rend, damage 1. In a unit of 20 with a guild champion you are putting out 41 attacks. Additionally, with special abilities such as Oathsword Honour guard, and the (on foot) Freeguild general’s Hold the line, they get +1 to hit and +2 to hit with +1 to wound when not moving. Their ability Decapitating Swing also means unmodified hit rolls of 6 generate mortal wounds and it’s fair to say if you are rolling 41 attacks, there will be some 6’s. This unit hits like a truck and I must have it!

Baldur’s Gate 3 Early Access Thoughts

Title Screen on first launching the game. Exciting times!

I recently picked up the early access copy of Baldur’s Gate 3 and though this blog is a place where I want to discuss table top gaming and the hobby, I really feel this PC game has a place here. My reasoning for this is because unlike Larian Studio’s previous Divinity: Original Sin series, this feels less like an isometric video game and more like a table top game.

Starting a New Army- Age of Sigmar

The Cities of Sigmar BattleTome

A few years ago I dabbled in the idea of starting Warhammer Fantasy. At the time I was REALLY into World Eaters and so naturally gravitated to Warriors of Chaos… then the old world spontaneously exploded just before I pulled the trigger. The second attempt came a few years later, now with Age of Sigmar, the Warhammer Fantasy successor. Try as I might, the new factions just didn’t appeal. I hated the aesthetic of the Stormcast Eternals and the other new factions just didn’t capture my imagination. I did eventually pick up some of the old empire minis but without proper codex support and my chosen faction feeling quite out of place, I eventually lost interest and shelved the project.
