Coalescence 2017: Skirmish Edition


Hi Guys, in this post I shall be detailing how we as a club will be changing Coalescence into a Skirmish Event instead. We aren't able to all do a full Saturday but we can do a Tuesday eve regular games night event, so here is how we changed the Event pack to play Skirmish instead. We thought as we are creating a Skirmish edition Event pack, we may as well share this to the world too. I can see a lot of clubs being in the same boat as us, not being able to participate on the 10th but as they hold a regular games night weekly, a club night would be better suited to play the event at.

Review: Age of Sigmar Skirmish


Good day all! Today I have a special review of Age of Sigmar Skirmish, the brand new supplement or even stand alone game from Games Workshop. I have been excited for this for quite some time now, at the end of March a group of us were lucky enough to go up to Warhammer World HQ and playtest the rules and experiment with integrating it into other forms of Narrative play.

Miniature Showcase: Paul Buckler, Ironclad

I have a very special guest today on the miniature showcase. Paul is a Hero when it comes to community driven projects and an inspiration to most at his gaming club and beyond. I saw on Twitter last week that he had completed in record time 2k worth of Overlords, one of the first I had seen and i loved the look of his Ironclad. I wanted to get him on for many reasons, one being to find out a little more of the 'Dogfather' as he is known! Here is a small interview and some pics for you!

Warhammer Community! Miniature Showcase Special

So I am super excited today and have completed one of my Hobby goals! I have my army featured on the Warhammer Community Website!


Steve Foote approached us 'Only The Faithful' NEO's a while ago to ask if we would like to partake in something upcoming for Warhammer TV. A narrative take over day. A whole day dedicated to running our own short narrative whilst playing some games on TV. We all of course said... YES! Whilst we was up a few weekends ago at Warhammer headquarters (more info coming on this soon), we took our minis up to have them photographed by the WH photo team, our minis were taken off into the aether, somewhere we were definitely not allowed to follow. If only the miniatures could tell us what they saw in that room!

Battle Report & Review: SCGT Battleplan, Realmgate Wars

'With the sound of Skaven screams still ringing in their ears, they fell back and headed towards the Gnawing Sea and the Maw gate which should have led them to Azyr. Instead as they emerged from the portal, the heat hit them like a brick, in front of them was a war torn ruined city, gradually being reclaimed by the surrounding deserts, they knew they were in Shyish, but did not know where. The Realmgate they emerged from was one of 4, positioned in a diamond, as the last of the War Council came through, the gate plasma turned from a Blue hue to a Green one to match the other 4.

Across the battlefield and emerging from the far Realmgate stood a Feast of Ogors, huge beasts of the Gutbusters, armed with huge cannons and weapons. The objective here was clear, claim the Realmgates and begin the process of altering their pathways. The Acolyte manning the Luminark had a plan.. it was a suicidal one, but one that may just work. He received blessings from Bretorri the Life Wizard and the Shadow Wizard too, with the Mystic Auras surrounding the machine, he flew back into the Realmgate and emerged instantaneously across the battlefield in front of the approaching Ironguts and General Tyrant. The Acolyte charged the weapon and fired direct into the Boss, he was thrown back off the sand dune and before he could recover to his feet, the Luminark charged forward into him, the Acoylte took a swing and connected again knocking him down, a horse rose up and slammed down hard onto the Tyrants head, splitting his skull and ending his rein.

Shocked at the sudden demise of their leader, the Ogors rushed the Luminark, the Acolyte with his last breath uttered 'For Sigmar!'.'

This week I played Mark and his Gutbusters, Mark has a great win ratio in the club and not many have beaten this Ogor list, it was great game and came right down to the wire. I picked an agenda in secret which happened to be, Kill the General. In this scenario, it was very much like Border Wars from the Generals Handbook, but with the twist of the objectives being Realmgates which you could Hop between. You scored 1 point for controlling your own Realmgate, 2 for each on the Borders and 4 for your opponents.
