Element Games Grand Slam Round 1 Predictions

So this weekend all 4 of us are attending the Element Games Grand Slam up at the Northwest Gaming Centre in Stockport. You can hear about our lists in a show we recorded talking about the event here. Just for a bit of fun I thought I would make some round 1 predictions. These will be based mostly off of the lists and not the players behind them. As there are a lot of people at the event that are new to the Age of Sigmar scene or that I haven’t seen playing before.

The lists can be found here.

Painting Stormcast Eternals for my Order Army

Just a quick one today – this is where I’ve been putting my hobby time recently: I’ve been painting Stormcast Eternals for my order army! Mostly I have devoted my time to starting the slow and gradual process of NMMing (Non-Metallic-Metal) my Judicators. I’ve actually been stippling them – in a bastardisation of the techniques learned at the David Soper masterclass. The techy painting is really pushing me and I’m finding it quite difficult, as I’m learning my way round a new technique whilst trying to adapt it to ensure I don’t spend 20hours on each model! The aim here is 3hours or less for each ‘Battleline’ troop, maybe 4hours or less for fancier Paladins. I’ve also done a little more work on my Elf Mage/Battlemage Farseer conversion.

High Elf Mage Farseer Conversion

I had so much fun at Warhammer Worlds Heat 3 playing my janky High Elf Dragon list that I’ve decided to continue working on The (turquoise) Twilight Host! I’m looking for excuses to use nice plastic characters (be they Aelf or otherwise), in this article I cover making a High (Aelf) Elf Mage conversion using the Warhammer 40k Eldar Farseer model.

I picked up the beautiful Eldar Farseer model from the Warhammer 40,000 range with a view to what is basically a head/arm swap. The head swap was simple, the arms were far more complex than I had intended upon though. The fantastic Empire Battle Wizard box came in very useful, as well as some Eternal Guard/Wyldwood Ranger Vambraces.

Kharadron Overlords

Over the weekend, I watched the Warhammer TV coverage of the Age of Sigmar Grand tournament: Heat 3. This is the first major event we have been able to see the Kharadron Overlords in action and I was interested to see where people went with the army design and it seems one sky port has proven popular – Barak-Zilfin.

The most prolific Kharadron Overlords list at the event were the affectionately named “clown car” lists. Continue Reading “Kharadron Overlords: Barak-Zilfin Tactics”

Kharadron Overlords Tactics: Sky Wardens & Endrinriggers!

Sky Wardens and Endrinriggers!

Sky Wardens and Endrinriggers!

Both Sky Wardens and Endrinriggers are the most versatile units you can take in a Kharadron Overlords army. With a fly movement of 12” these are some of the most manoeuvrable Kharadron Overlords units. They have access to decent range weaponry, such as the deadly Drill Cannons and Aethermatic volley guns. They also have some solid combat potential in the form of Aethermatic Saw blades and Sky Pikes. Thanks to the Hitchers special rule these units take up no space on the Sky Vessels. This makes them very strong for the “clown car” list. (see my article on this here!)
