Shar’Tor the Executioner – Ep 133

Shar'tor
Warhammer Fest, Flesh Eater Courts and Shar’Tor the Executioner are the topics for this weeks episode.

Shar’Tor the Executioner

I picked up Shar’Tor the Exectuioner last week and have built and painted him.  On this episode I talk about my thoughts on the model and also the chat I had with the rules writer at Warhammer Fest.  At the time of recording the model was only avalianble from Warhammer fest but should be on the Forge World website soon.

Warhammer Fest

Talking about Warhammer fest, I spent last Saturday at the event.  It was an awesome day that far surpassed all my expectations I was about to speak with members of the games workshop design team, including Jervis Johnson, the Warhammer TV crew, Authors, hobby team and lots more.  I even managed to find time for a demo game of Warhammer Quest.

Flesh-Eater Courts

The Flesh-Eater courts battle tome was released this week and despite having no new models it is packed with new rules and a fantastic new background for the Ghouls.  I’ve played a game against part of the new faction and love how it plays.

I have a new website to talk about TGA.Community.  The Grand Aliiance community is a hub for worldwide Age of Sigmar activity.  Chat about the game, share photos, find local players and promote the hobby.

This months gaming club night at Derby Wargames Society had 26 players playing Age of Sigmar! With nearly 40 people across all game systems.  The club scene in Derbies thriving with AoS. Let me know what your local club is doing.

Warhammer Quest App ‘My Hero’ review

I just posted a Warhammer Quest App ‘My Hero’ review over on YouTube.

You can check out the video here.

As you can see from the videos (and the images below) the Warhammer Quest App ‘My Hero’ gives a player everything that they need to play Age of Sigmar characters in Warhammer Quest Silver Tower.

You can purchase the character’s in the app for 79p each or get every character and 9 addition Skill and Treasure cards for £20.

 

Choose your trial and follow your hero as he fights his way though the twisting labyrinth of the Silver Tower.  Track their dice, collect their Treasure and Skill cards in an easy to read format and note which cards they will keep as they continue their adventure.

10 Hero’s from the bed games and 35 new hero’s, all based on the citadel plastic range.

Having spent an evening playing with the app (and a week now with the game) I can see myself using this whenever I play Warhammer Quest.

Warhammer Fest so far…..

It’s not even lunchtime and it feels like I’ve been here hours!  So much cool stuff to see and do all in 1 place.

What I’ve done so far.

Spotted the artwork of new Sylvaneth stuff. Alerialle the goddess is on deeply in the section promoting a new Age of Sigmar book to be released this summer.


I’ve me the Warhammer TV team and got the selfie to prove it.  I was able to chat to them about the process around the YouTube videos and they were fantastic to chat with.


I also got to look at the really cool armies form the Army Painter studio. I had a long talk with some of the team about quick ways of painting armies and have some dirty cheats to try out.


Next up was the Warhammer World studio and the model of their new Exhibition display Bing opened on June 18th.  They had also made a 3D Version of Warhammer Quest.


The top floor at the event is currently filled with the staff armies, but I guess tomorrow it will be for Golden Demon submissions


My first stop was the forge world are to get the lowdown on the Bull Centaur Shar’Tor’s rules.  He has a ‘Deathmask scream’ and a 1 use only command ability.  Other than that it was pretty sealed lips.  But Alan was a great guy to chat to about the new model.


Next stop was the chap who painted the model.  He was very helpful in explaining things about paint that a mere mortal could never comprehend.


The retail/trade area is the busiest by far.  Queues out of the door.


I also had a catch up with James Hewitt.  He’s really happy to be able to talk about some of details of Blood Bowl.

Highlights were : Still set in ‘Bloodbowl land’ this is its own thing not attached to Age of Sigmar or the Old World.   Most of the old rules are remaining in tact.  So measures are being taken to limit the fact that teams get out of control in league play.  Lots of exciting things to come!!!

So my quick snack break is over, back to the fun!!!

Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower Unboxing – ep 131

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Warhammer Quest Silver Tower game.  In this episode I unbox the game, mic in hand, and have a first look and play through of the rules.

I talk about the contents of the box as I open it up and also discuss the general game play as I go through the game mechanics.

I took some photos of the game and I have also started painting a few of the models.  Any suggestions on basing would be great.

First impressions of the game are very good!  The quality of the components are excellent, as you would expect, and the miniatures are some of the best so far for Age of Sigmar.

I predict that Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower will be a huge release for games workshop and be a staple of the range for years to come.
