Facehammer GT 2017 Event Pack
The Facehammer GT 2017 event pack is now here!
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.
So first off we have the grudges for the event which I will go into a bit more detail when doing my prediction. Continue Reading “Element Games Grand Slam Round 1 Predictions”
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.
In this Blogisode we talk about the recent Age of Sigmar GT Heat 3 winning list; used to devastating effect by Nick Thompson. Nick took as far from a ‘Net list’ as you could imagine, so we decided to discuss the build and tactics he used!
Listen to our musings below!
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!)
In today’s show we discuss the AOS 6 Nations event. We are joined by special guest star Tom ‘the blight king’ Mawdsley to discuss his Blight King army. Byron discusses his Death army and covers his thinking behind the match up process. Les discusses Sylvaneth tactics and how to win at Blood and Glory!
Hello peeps, we’ve started blogging! Hopefully this can become your go-to place for FaceHammer flavoured updates on everything Age Of Sigmar! We’re going to be treating it much like FaceHammer’s Twitter but without a text limit :).
What can you expect to see here?
For my first post I thought I’d pick something very basic: my hobby corner! (It made me tidy as a hidden bonus..). Like a lot of you I have limited space to hobby in, and I often work at my desk too, so I’ve found a nice middle ground.
In this show we discuss the new releases and some of the rules around the Stormcast and Khorne characters. We also talk about what we have been up to (or lack of) and the current state of the game/community. We also look to the future (which looks bright) focusing around the upcoming events during the next few months and also give tips on which armies new players should look to collect to get into AoS
