Last weekend I played in an event at Warhammer - Ann Arbor and had a great time! We played an Age of Sigmar tournament that paired up random people each round to fight against another team.

Fantasy Friday: Prepping for Age of Sigmar 2.0

Age of Sigmar 2.0 is launching tomorrow (officially) and the excitement is palpable all over. I am trying hard to get a 2,000 point Ironjawz army painted so I can play with confidence and provide a good example for new players.

The Walking Dead: All Out War Project Journal


One of my goals this spring has been to paint my pretty huge collection of The Walking Dead miniatures. I've purchased everything for it, including all the MDF buildings (I think?). It is a ton of walkers and survivors, but for the most part they're easy to paint as they're mostly simple clothes, skin, and weapons.

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cults Index Review: New Unit Ideas


I successfully attended AdeptiCon in late March and had a ton of fun. I played in the Miniwargaming.com Narrative Campaign day with my fully painted Genestealer Cult army and got a ton of great feedback, including folks stopping to say how cool they looked. It felt really good!

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Army Listing


I had a great time at AdeptiCon, buying lots of stuff and playing tons of great games. My Friday was spent playing in MiniWargaming's Oscinia narrative campaign day. I brought a 2,000 point Genestealer Cult list and managed to go 1-2, winning one game pretty big, losing one game decisively and losing one game pretty badly.

I think the two losses were bad matchups, however with some better charge rolls I could have done better in the closer loss. Custodes are just impossible because they have tons of re-rolls, armor saves, and high volume shooting attacks. I think perhaps with a new codex if all we get are lowered point values I'll do better, but we'll need better rules as well to win more.

The Road to AdeptiCon 2018 - Light at the End of the Tunnel


It's been a fast few months. The holidays really hammered my hobby progress for AdeptiCon, and I had a major event change in February, so I've really been cramming in a lot the last few weeks. I have had my Shadespire guys finished for a while. I'm also bringing my Skorne for Company of Iron, but those have been finished for years.

Warhammer 40,000: Genestealer Cult Index Review - Heavy Support Choices


You can see my first article in this series here. I covered HQ selections, overall traits for the Genestealer Cult, relics, psychic powers, etc. The second in the series is about troops and dedicated transports and can be found here. The third in the series is about elites and can be found here. The fourth article in the series is about heavy support choices and can be found here.

I've added two Forge World Astra Militarum units to this review because I think they're a little less known and they really add to the lists I've been using.
