Check out Hive Fleet Charybdis' new home at:

Hive Fleet Charybdis has been on Blogspot for many years (since 2011!), but it is time for a change of venue.  As of today, the Blogspot site will no longer be updated and WordPress will be our new home!  I have made this change due to the fact that WordPress is just a lot better for file hosting, and I have a tendency to host a lot of files.  Also, WordPress has a very nice look to it, and I manage a hodgepodge of other WordPress sites, so all of it will be in one place now.

Twelve Days of Sigmarisnacht

Hey Everybody! I'm running my first Global Narrative Event, Twelve Days of Sigmarisnacht (December 1 - December 12). It's really easy to participate, all you need to do is find a friend, play this battleplan (you might want to get them a gift), and report your results here.
You can also follow the Sigmarisnacht Facebook page for updates and information about this and future Sigmarisnacht events!

Narrative Toolbox 1: Storygaming

I have been running monthly narrative Age of Sigmar events for the past 3 years (just by counting the battleplans in my campaign books, I have planned and run at least 30 Game Day events).  This is the first part of a narrative toolbox for other NEOs to draw from to hopefully learn from my experiences and further build the technology of narrative event design.

Dadhammer Junior!

So I got my kiddo the First Strike starter when he was about 4, and we've been playing some super-simplified 40k now and again.  Now that he's a little older, I felt like he needed a bit more structure, and something that he could read and reference for himself (rather than just doing whatever I said "the rules" were).  So I devised... DADHAMMER 40,000!

Astra Militarum Conscripts

I received a request in the comments for an Astra Militarum Conscripts warscroll.  Ask and ye shall receive!  These guys are dirt cheap at 100 points per 20 of them, and can be taken in units of 20 to 60.  However, not only are they bad at shooting people with their surplus lasguns, they are also more cowardly than ordinary guardsmen.  Plus, they have a pretty good chance of ignoring any command abilities you try to use on them.  What are they good for?  Meat shields mostly, also running away.

Additionally, it was requested that the Infantry Squad Sergeant be able to be equipped with a Laspistol and Sword.  So I made a shiny new warscroll to cover that option as well.  Enjoy!

The Plaguesworn Hunt

This project taught me a few things about fattening up lithe, muscular models.  I chunked them up by adding green stuff to the thighs and underarms.

AoS Game Day: The Treasure of Thindrongol Nuk

For something completely different, in July we had a skirmish(ish) Game Day.
"When the Necroquake rocked Efengie, it disrupted the Penumbral Engine concealing one of Sigmar’s Stormvaults; a sprawling subterranean duardin labyrinth with a single inscription over its gateway, “Thindrongol Nuk”.  A few days ago, a bandit hiding out in the Painted Spires stumbled upon the vault.  Although she returned to Reaper with the intention of gathering a crew, word travels fast in Efengie."
