Staring into the Abyss – Part 5 : Choosing a Vanguard Company

So this post is a bit naughty in couple of ways

  1. I’ve been playing (lots of) games and have more of a perspective on the different units than when I started. I’m writing this retrospectively as I think my initial reasoning was sound and what I’ve learnt since is a topic for another post.

Undead vs Abyss

With the Your Club, Your Story initiative running at the Aftermath Club, a lot of players are being introduced to Vanguard at the same time. I’ve played Vanguard on and off since release, as have a few other members of the club (most noticeably Mark who fully backed the Kickstarter and ran demos all day at the Norwich Diceni 2019 event in May) so we started “Our Story” by running a couple of demo nights for everyone taking part.

Staring into the Abyss – Part 2 : Abyss Warband Booster box opening and review

I continue to stare deep into the Abyss, looking for more powerful and varied demons to summon to my cause.

As part of the Your Club, Your Story initiative with Mantic Games, I’ve been carefully taking pictures of everything I’ve been doing! Hopefully this is a useful reference for everything in the Abyssal Warband Booster box.

So opening the box up, given there’s only 3 models in here, there’s a good amount of bubble wrap, so nothing shifts, its really well packed.

Staring into the Abyss – Part 1 : Abyss Warband Set box opening and review

As part of the Your Club, Your Story initiative with Mantic Games, I’ve been carefully taking pictures of everything I’ve been doing! I’ve still managed to miss a few shots, but hopefully this remains a useful reference for everything in the Abyssal Warband Set box. Its a bit oldskool doing this as a blog post rather than a video, I hope you’ll bear with me.

Triple-game Undead

Over at the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, the colonials presented a challenge to paint up 200 points of a new army each calendar month. The points must adhere to 3rd or 4th edition Warhammer. I no longer play either, but I do collect Undead and like an excuse to paint them – so I am going to join in. As the ruleset doesn’t matter to me, I’m going to blog the progress with information for both rulesets for pleasure and thematics – and since I actually use my undead for Kings of War, for that too!

Kings of War : Herd progress, Avatar of the Father

So at the start of the year I blogged about starting a herd army for Kings of War.  I mentioned that I had plans for an Avatar of the Father model, using an unreleased model from Mierce Minatures, Sia.  Well after asking nicely, I finally received the model recently and got to work on building and painting it.  This post hopefully will review the model and show you how I’ve got it battle ready.
