Yesterday finally saw mine, Alexanders and Eriks extensively converted chaos warbands clash in glorious battle in the warped landscape of the chaoswastes (also known as the kitchen table in my offices basement).
We'll get back to the two battles we fought once Alexander is finished writing up the battlereport and we have sorted all of the pictures.
What I can say straight away is that this was the first time any of us played a game using the Age of Sigmar rules and that we - all being casual gamers - found it to be quite fun. There's some certainly some issues with the game if you're a "proper gamer" - I can imagine the battles getting repetitive quite fast if you play several times a week.
But for someone like me, who only play a few times a year, it was refreshingly straightforward while still retaining some strategic challenges. Also any game would get repetitive played every week as far as I'm concerned...
Anyway, today I'd like to properly present my warband - the nurgly followers of Lord Mawgut Gloop.
The head honchos: Blightking champion Spleech, Lord Mawgut Gloop, Plague Sorceror Nergal
Six Blightkings led by Spleech
Ten Chaos Warriors with mark of Nurgle led by Aspiring Champion Morbus Gravis
All in all I'm quite happy with how the warband turned out and how they performed in battle. The blightkings are BRUTAL - they may not be fast but they can both take and dish out absurd amounts of punishment if the dicegods are with you.
In the future I'd like to add a unit of chaos goblins, some plaguebearers and a big monster of some sort.
That's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow with a tutorial for how I painted the Blightking champ and a closer look at the biletrolls.
