Soulblight Necropolis.

Hi all


Today I will be bringing you a review of the new battle mat by games workshop. The Soulblight Necropolis. 



As you can see from the picture, the mat has a death theme to it, with tomes scattered about, and some unusual looking carvings/runes on the floors. 


The scenery I have from 4 ground goes really well with the mat, which I am very happy about as I have quite the collection. 









The only negative points I can think of with this batter mat, is one the size. It is 4 foot by 4 foot and not the traditional 6 foot by 4 foot. So you will have to scale down your armies for full battles. This size is however perfect for skirmish games. If you haven't checkout our Kaelos excellent reviews of the Skirmish book, I suggest you do so. The only other negative thing is that the mat comes folded in a small box which creates annoying fold lines. As a result of this, I suggest storing it rolled up in a cardboard tube. 


Overall I believe this is a must buy for any death player, and I cannot wait to have some amazing looking battles on it. 


Take care

Preview of next month's White Dwarf:


So, as expected there is a ton of new releases for 40k and a few for AoS, all of these new bundles create a fantastic platform for new beginners in the hobby and also a cheaper option for veterans to add to their own collections!

There is a large section devoted to AoS Skirmish which looks like a really good and a section at the back for Realm of Battle ideas. 

My first thoughts are that this is a really strong White Dwarf. Looking forward to the next one :)

Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows

Hi all


As some of you may have already noticed, the next Age of Sigmar is not on the Black Library website, to be released in September.


 


I am really looking forward to reading if this one, as it will be the first real look into what the mortals are doing. 


This will be the first instalment of a trilogy called the Eight Lamentations. We are led to believe that the story will involve a quest to find the Lamentations by a rag tag group mixed up of humans, aelfs and duardin. So this should come up with some interesting social encounters. 


I have pre ordered Plague Garden, which is due to be available from the 17th June. I will be aiming to power through it and putting a review on our blog, so please look out for that. 


Those of you on Twitter, please give us a follow @ageofwarhammer. 


Thank you and take care :-)

Warhammer 40,000 Dark Imperium - Sprues

Hi all

We were lucky enough to recieve a lovely package from GW this week and I wanted to share some of the pictures with you. I would have done this yesterday but I was at the UK Game Expo in Birmingham - which we will look at later in the week. 

For now I thought I would share some pictures and first impressions of the starter set and all 5 books:





Quick start rules:



Marine Sprues:










Nurgle Sprues:









Our Warhammer 40,000 coverage will mainly take place over at Battle Bunnies but I will be putting some bites up here as I digest it over the coming weeks. Is there anything in particular you would like me to cover?

Stay tuned and stay fluffy
