Assembly guide. 



I have already assembled this model and am very close to finish painting it. It really is a beautiful model and a joy to put together. I am following the excellent painting guide on the Warhammer tv YouTube page and will be sure to show you all once completed. 


Stay tuned for the reviews for the other Malign Portents characters.

Shadespire - The Chosen Axes

Hi all


As a follow on from yesterday’s review of the Spiteclaw’s Swarm (https://ageofwarhammer.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/shadespire-spitclaw-swarm.html?m=1) today, I would like to share with you the new Shadespire gang for Fyreslayers, The Chosen Axes. 


The front. 



The back



Next, we have the actual models. I am a fan of the Fyreslayers anyway, but I really do think these new models are excellent. These would look great in a game of Shadespire, and also give a great bit of variety in bigger battles. 



Front and back of sprue 1

The booklet and assembly guide. 







Lastly but not least, there is a large number of new cards to go alongside this expansion. 










This is another great value for money pack and I am really looking forward to seeing how this guys do in Shadespire and also bigger battles.

Shadespire - Spiteclaw's Swarm

Hi all

Recently we have been lucky to receive a few items to review from Games Workshop. Today I wanted to take a look at an item I am personally looking forward to - Spiteclaw's Swarm expansion for Shadespire. I haven't spent as much time as I would have liked playing Shadespire, but it is a cracking game which seems to be incredibly popular. Let's take a look shall we?!

The front of the box:



The back!:



Let's take a look at the models!! One thing I talk about all the time to my friends is that I love the movement that GW captures in new models. Where fantasy used to be regimental, the models were very restrictive in their movement, but the change to round bases has allowed for some great sculpts (we just need GW to resculpt some of the older models like Wood Elves!!!) and these are no exception. I will actually be buying a ton of these to kitbash/convert into a more modern looking Clanrat pack!

A tidy tray for it all to be kept in:



Front and back of sprue 1:





Front and back of sprue 2:





The booklet and assembly guide:









Next up is the cards. This is the first expansion pack I have owned and I am super surprised by how many cards it comes with!! There is a fantastic variety of cards which is perfect for gaming, both in a casual and more hardcore sense.

Deck 1 - Skills:





Deck 2 - more Skaven specific:





For me, the pack is great value. If it had only been a handful of cards and 5 models I may have been put off but there is a *ton* of cards in here. Also, GW have released TWO warscrolls for the pack! The first one is for the 4 clanrats but the second is for using Spiteclaw as a warlord! This makes the pack a worthwhile purchase for both Age of Sigmar AND Shadespire players.

Awesome expansion, stay tuned for more reviews over the coming weeks. If you have any comments of feedback please comment below - it really means a lot to us when we hear from you!

Stay fluffy!

Nagash: The Undying King Review

Hi all


With the events from Malign Portents, and the up and coming Death battletome, i thought it would be a good time to read, and post a review of Nagash: The Undying King.





This book is set during the Age of Chaos around the same time as Mannfred is helping defend Hellstone, this is referred to in the audio dramas. 





Khorne has been struggling to fully invade Shyish do to the harsh environment, so Nurgle decide to give it a go as they are far more survivable. A force of Nurgle Deamons and The Order of the Fly are on the war path, their goal is one of the last remaining strongholds. The Mandible. This is a lot harder as it seems however as they constantly have obstacles thrown in their way. 





On the other side, a people called the Rictus are are in preparation to defend the Mandible, with the help of not just 1, but 2 Mortarchs. Arkhan the Black and Neferata. The latter having her own agenda of course. All the while, a dark force is regaining strength in Stygix.




I believe this is easily the best Age of Sigmar novel that I have read so far, and really is a must for any fans of Death. This novel shows the lives of the normal mortals in the realm of death, and does not include any of the unbelievable, farfetched and in some cases just silly moments that have happened in the previous novels.


Please comment your thoughts in the comments below. Also, please let me know if you would like me to go into more detail of the story and give away spoilers in my reviews in the future. 

 

Take care :-)

Fyreslayer Shadespire Gang

Hi all


As well as the new Aelf Battletome, https://ageofwarhammer.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/hi-all-it-has-now-been-confirmed-that.html?m=1, there has also been some new Fyreslayer Models. 





These are for Shadespire, but obviously will be able to used in battles as well. 


I really like these, and I think they will give the army the variety that it needs.

Daughters of Khaine Battletome

Hi all


It has now been confirmed that we are finally getting an Aelf Battletome. 









I video has been posted on the Warhammer TV YouTube page, showing that we are getting an Aelf Battletome called the Daughters of Khaine.









Not only that, bet we are getting some lovely new models, mixed in with some old as well.







I am going to be very interested to read the fluff about these in the Battletome, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long 


Take care :-)

First look at the Realm of Shadows

Hi all


Yet another fantastic video has gone up on the Warhammer TV Facebook page.






This, I believe, is the first look at the Realm of Shadow, and it shows Morathi who is clearly on the verge rising up out of the shadows.





I am really looking forward to see what happens with this. Not only because of potential new models, but also all the fluff that goes along with it. 





Maybe we will see this at the Warhammer Open Day in March? Time will tell.  


Take care :-)
