  • A friend of mine had a wonderful idea while drawing some parallels between the Dread elves book and the Army he wanted. Instead of going for the normal dark, moody dread elf look, he decided to go in a very different direction by incorporating Roman style troops. He came to this conclusion, I assume, because of the similarities of the Greek Monsters of Tales and the Monsters in the book, then pointed a finger in the Roman directions. Personally I loved the idea, and even more so because he introduced me to Victrix Models.


    The Models themselves are highly detailed, and come with a LOT of options when it comes to standards and other such bits. Even after putting together a full command+ for a single 25 man unit, there we still a TON of bits left over, which always make a modeler and gamer happy.


    I mean look at all those heads! All of them are extremely detailed, and have a matching cape to adorn the back of the fully armored model. Was extremely nice to see from a company. Unfortunately there is only one sprue like this in the pack, and they dont seem to sell them separately as far as im aware.



    I have some Vikings on the way from Victrix, and I'll be doing a video and a post here about them as well,

  • Hi

    I've just started a YouTube channel dedicated to all things 9th Age related, and wanted to share it with the community I love. So, it was time to join the Community Engagement Team and start a real blog on this site.

    My plan for the channel is to record myself talking about some 9the Age related topic while painting. Hopefully it can provide some mildly entertaining noise for you to have playing in the background while you are painting. Together maybe we can get some more painting done.

    Here is a short introduction video:


    And here is the first episode:


    The miniature painted is a Barbarian Manhunter by Avatars of War.
    The mentioned Tournament Report.

    Hopefully more to come, cheers! [Read More]

  • Also, its not a battle report - but important nonetheless! Here is an interview with @piteglio, showcasing his "Veil of the Ages: The Breach" game and talking through some aspects of it with the hope to get some more pledges for his Kickstarter campaign. In short, it's a simple game aimed to get new people into our wonderful hobby, even more easy to grasp than the Quickstarter game that he has helped to work on as well.

    Really important to give guys like this our backing, as it will help to promote our game and get more people interested and inevitably, more people to play against! So, if you want to be apart of that, or simply just like the look of the game itself, then head over to there to pledge as little or as much as you can - every penny counts!

    youtube.com/watch?v=Pf5Yvf1IFlc&t=73s

    Link to the Kickstarter below. Please offer your support if you can.
    kickstarter.com/projects/veilo…/the-breach?ref=user_menu

    Here's just some of the things that the game is looking to offer - now and in the near future if this goes ahead:
    • Basic game for new players
    • More scenarios & Battlemat as stretch goals
    • New (custom) models and pieces of terrain
    • Dice, Tape measure and gaming tools (line of sight, etc)
    • Unit/Rules cards for easier gameplay in main T9A game
    • New artwork & tokens
    • Translated Hardcover Legendary Rulebooks for T9A game
    • A video game for The Breach, Quickstarter and eventually T9A main game
    All for as little as 25euros! I think we can all agree that would be amazing! A great guy and some really hard work going into this so, please follow in our footsteps and support as much as you can! [Read More]
  • We continue to look back at Art of War in Bristol with both round 3 fixtures here for your viewing pleasure! Both of us weary from the days play, as non-regular tournament goers 3 in a day is tiring lol.

    H-G takes on an Infernal Warrior player with a HUGE block of warriors and some big ol' merts to go with it - including the pain train. While I test my shooting prowess against an Ogre list that out-shoots me with his - count them - 19(!) Bombadiers. Oh and 3 giants and a massive unit of Bruisers. Ouch!

    Saurian Ancients vs Infernal Dwarves


    Highborn Elves vs Ogre Khans

  • Hi guys,

    So its been a while since I've had some time to do blog stuff and so this comes a little bit later than i had hoped but the first in a series about the recent ART of War tournament in Bristol. Not only did we attend in good spirits, but we actually got invited to 'cover' the event by way of our channel. We would still do the Battle reports and tournament review as usual, but we would also be getting the opportunity to do a bit more to promote the event and to show how awesome going to events is for war gamers, and how fun it can be. With this in mind our vision for the tournament coverage was to provide:
    • List Reviews
    • Draw sneak peek
    • Table #1 Livestream
    • Short (& Friendly) Player Interviews
    • Bat Reps
    • Mid-Tournament (& Saturday evening shenanigans) Videos and Snippets
    We were very excited about this and want to share with you everything we managed to get up to. As you might expect, with playing in the tournament as well we had very little time to actually do the rest, but still managed a fair amount so hopefully we have done the tournament some sort of justice! Thanks once again to Callum (@'cm284') & Shane @The golden dwarf) for giving us the opportunity to help out, and for running a truly superb event. I don't think we've received any negative feedback on it and i know that everyone had a great time and especially commented on how good the atmosphere was which i think is a testament to them both! Great people, Nice prizes, and good times had by all - and 80 players, meaning it was officially the biggest singles tourney in the UK!

    Anyway, the main thing we wanted to get across to people was how easy going this tournament was - especially to new players, which we were this time last year. We attended simply as players last year and it was our first tournament. Not knowing what to expect, we turned up very anxious (and also excited), but this quickly changed and we had a great time. Big shout out to @Fthunder who was my first opponent back then, gave me a proper schooling in my first ever tournament game (20-0) but then sat with me and talked the game and some other tactics through, making me feel very welcome and not just upset that I couldn't hack it at tourneys. This I think helped me to just relax and play the rest of my games in the right spirit - and i think that was not a special case at this event, in either years. So yeah, good job in organising an event that is suitable for noobs (like we were last year), gamer's, average players and elite players alike.

    So, first up from our point of view were the list 'review' and revealing the draw to the public! Here are the videos for those of you that missed it...




    Apologies for the echo sound on this one, first time we have used skype so bare with us lol

    Plenty more to come from this event too, but we'll leave you with that for now! :thumbup: [Read More]
