    Have anyone tried Warcry? Currently there are 3 Death warbands available for this skirmish: Legions of Nagash (Necromancer, skeletons, grave guards), Nighthaunts and Flesh-eaters.

    Josh Reynolds' ansvers regarding AoS

    Josh Reynolds is a hired writer who helps GW shaping the background of AoS (he wrote Nagash the Undying King btw). He also answers questions about background online. Just read what he writes! -Were all Stormcast originally human, or could a suitably devout Duardin, Orruk, Aelf, etc. be chosen...

    Nagash the Undying king

    I was waiting for this book and was disappointed to learn that it is a limited edition that was sold out during Warhammer World. I hoped they will make it an audiodrama, but it doesn't look like they will ever do it. I've read the general plot in one of the reviews, but I still want to read it...

    Aranei's AoS Mordheim

    Since the beginning of the AoS 1,5 years ago, attempts have been made to create a ruleset for AoS-based Mordheim. None of them felt play-tested or finished however. This and other issues, some inspiration from Mordheim, AoS Path to Glory and Frostgrave, and a number of my own ideas caused me to...

    Thoughts about pitched battles (matched play)

    So, now I have several pitched battles under my belt, and the time has come to share my thoughts about army building and playing the six battleplans. First of all, all the six pitched battles batteplans are supposed to be won (major victory) by scoring objectives and earning victory points. The...

    Next week I am going to participate in a 1500 pts tournament. The game size is considered "Vanguard", with all the associated restrictions.

    Lord of Undeath ending - Nagash is a genius?

    An evil genius, of course! Just some spoilers and thoughts about the ending of the novel and what Nagash is planning. Stolen from /tg. If someone is interested but don't own the book, I can PM you the epilogue so you can spoil it for yourself, saving time from reading the full novel.
