Dark Age of Sigmar: Artefacts

The Dark Age of Sigmar (also known as Aos28) is an aesthetic, largely a modeling style, that draws its inspiration from the artwork of John Blanche (among others), and shows the bleak lives of the poor wretches who don't get to be on the covers of battletomes.  For a while there was a lot of excitement with using the Hinterlands AoS skirmish rules (no longer supported by the original creator) to play DAoS battles, but there isn't really any one system to play by.  The whole thing is more community art project than it is a game or rules system.

Knowing this, I still thought that it would be fun if there were some Warhammer Skirmish friendly battleplans and other supplements that would evoke the DAoS aesthetic through play.

Colossal Red's Hoard

At the end of November, we had an Age of Sigmar Game Day themed around raiding the hoard of the enormous dragon "Colossal Red".  Colossal Red comes from a D&D miniatures Colossal Red Dragon that sat, unpurchased, on the shelf at the FLGS for years.  It was such a fixture of the store that when the store owner made the first map of Efengie, he added a mountainous lair for Colossal Red.  In various iterations of the campaign, one could steal treasure from the horde, risking Colossal Red's wrath (she would move out onto the campaign map as an army unto herself, destroying entire banners as she moved).  You could slay her whelps and forge magical Dragonhide armour as well, which was done often because it was awesome.

The Bloat

His brothers in arms simply call him "The Bloat". He used to have a name, but nobody uses it now that he's dead, his belly swollen with rot and Nurglings. Some suspect that he's actually just a meatbag full of the vile little creatures and that when he 'dies' again, they'll come pouring out. Whatever it is that keeps him walking, it's rendered him formidable enough that nobody has yet been able to test that theory.

40k Warscrolls: Knight Titan

I've finally gotten around to adding one of the units I've always wanted to get into Battletome Imperium.  The colossal Knight Titan!  I don't have any myself, but the model is just so cool.  So here it is in all its glory, the only warscroll in the Collegia Titanicus allegiance (not that that's really a thing).

Harlequins Allegiance Abilities

After remembering that I needed to finish the Harlequins allegiance abilities, I buckled down and came up with some stuff that I think turned out pretty well.

Speaking of Harlequins

Earlier in the year, I painted these Star/Voidweavers for one of my friends.  He's working on an army of Harlequins enlisting as many different painters as possible, which I think is a super cool idea.  I was thrilled to get the chance to paint some of them, because I've always wanted to paint Harlequins, but feel no need to do a whole army of them.

Anyhow, he submitted his Ynnari army to Faeit, and it got featured, so if you're interested, you can see the rest of his army (and some more pictures of the Voidweavers) over there.

40k Warscrolls: Harlequins

I realized this morning that I've been sitting on Harlequin warscrolls for a while with unfinished Allegiance Abilities.  So I figured I should probably post them up so that people can use them with Grand Alliance Order at least.
