The Shepherds of Rot

Hinterlands has been picking up at the shop, and I have been inspired by all the awesome conversions on the AoS28 Facebook group.  So here are the oddities I've cooked up so far for my Nurgle warband (Larvulous, Gadfly of Nurgle is the current champion).

I've got Leish the Houndmaster, who is made from some Blight King parts and an orruk charioteer.  The Chaos Hounds are made from wolves with spare Plague Drone heads and tails.  Aside from that, I based a few Corpse Cart rats and some nurglings to join my gruesome flock.

Battleplan: Death's Doorstep

Here's the battleplan for the next battleplan Age of Sigmar: Game Day.  The Orruks from Eucebium are continuing their push into Shyish despite heavy losses at the hands of the Sylvaneth and Stormcast Eternals.


I started off with the lofty goal of using the events' outcomes to tell an overarching story, and I'm not sure I've done a good job of that lately.  The first "season" went pretty smoothly in that regard, but as I began the second season, things have grown.  In the first season, there were 4 or so regular players.  Now most of the events draw 8 or 9 people, which means that I can't pay as much attention to all of the battles, and it's difficult to pull the story every whichaways depending on who wins each event.

I think that rather than focus on one long-form narrative, I should move to each battle deciding the fate of one location or story element (mcguffin, artefact, title, etc), and then have a big climax at the end that is based on the results of the other battles.  We'll see what happens.  Either way it's gonna be fun!
