Converting a New General - Part 1: Meet My Very Old General

I've decided to mark the release of Battletome: Cities of Sigmar by converting a new general to helm my Greywater Fastness force. The book isn't out yet, and I currently don't have any idea what I'll be converting my new general out of, what warscroll I'll use, or even what race they'll be - likely either a Freeguild General on Griffon or Warden King, or maybe even a Stormcast, very unlikely to be an aelf. I only currently know one thing about my future general, whoever he or she may be, and to explain it I'll have to explain Dargrimm, my long-suffering Warhammer general of almost 20 years...

CITY SPOTLIGHT(?): The Harrowmark and the Ironfang Fleet by Warboss Kurgan

We're only on the second instalment of City Spotlight, and the we're already taking a detour from its established premise. In a special edition of the column, only tangentially related to Cities of Sigmar, I interview the estimable Warboss Kurgan, aka Saul about The Harrowmark, the sprawling narrative project he's been running since AoS's inception, developing an area of the Realm of Death, that's spun into scenery, campaigns, art, and almost every other aspect of the hobby; as well as the Ironfang Fleet, the comparatively civilised (by Destruction standards at least!) group of orruks who live there, and the Harrowmark's few Order-fringing inhabitants...

REVIEW: Realmslayer - Part 2: Spoilerific Recap

Here's the second part of my Realmslayer review (the first part, sans spoilers found here) - a handy recap of what went down in the audio drama for anyone who needs their memory refreshed ahead of Gotrek's two new adventures Realmslayer: Blood of the Old World and Ghoulslayer when they hit next month.

REVIEW: Realmslayer - Part 1: Spoiler Free

Now owing as much to the fact that I'm overseas on holiday as the Cities of Sigmar battletome not having been released yet, here's another microwaved TGA post, this time in two parts - a review of Realmslayer by David Guymer, the Gotrek Gurnisson Age of Sigmar audio drama released by the folks at Black Library at the end of last year, followed by a recap of what happened in ahead of Realmslayer: Blood of the Old World and Ghoulslayer, the new Gotrek audio drama and novel set for release alongside his incredible new miniature next month.

CITY SPOTLIGHT: Dekay's Storm-Aelves of Ghur

Welcome to City Spotlight! In the first instalment of a (hopefully) regular feature on the blog, highlighting some of the very best Cities of Sigmar forces currently securing the Mortal Realms, we meet Karol Gorniak, aka Dekay of the TGA Forums and his brilliant Storm-Aelves of Ghur.

Did the WFB Timeline Ever Really Move Forward? A Look Back

Another day, another dearth of Cities of Sigmar stuff to write about, meaning I've decided to a revisit an old TGA post on the relaxed impetus of the old Warhammer setting. I should really get it out of my system and rebrand as an Oldhammer blog already...
