Bloodbowl!! League and Hobby Update

I have been the lone FCG representative playing one of GW's all time best games, Bloodbowl! The game received a new box set last year with great new minis and a updated pitch. It's been awhile since I played using BB miniatures instead opting for the online version on my PC. The new box set inspired me to sink my teeth into the hobby side again as well as join a league at my local store. It's been a lot of fun and the rules were easy to pick up again. Hobby and some league highlights below.

Age of Sigmar Skirmish - The Ironjawz

The New Games Workshop™ has been doing some exciting things this spring - obviously hyping their 8th Edition 40k release - but also putting out skirmish rules for their mythological fantasy game Age of Sigmar.

This comes at a good time - lots of GW fans have been pretty excited about Age of Sigmar, and producing a skirmish set allows new people to try it out with minimal investment. The rules seem to be just like regular Age of Sigmar, you just take one dude instead of a whole unit of dudes.

Warhammer 40,000: Opinions On a Small Amount of Information for 8th Edition

If you've been under a rock, the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 hits this summer and it will bring a ton of changes - more than any edition change that most players remember. Games Workshop has moved to a more normal relationship with customers, offering new information, asking for questions, etc. They have released a ton of teasers for 8th Edition - and of course I have some opinions.

We're going to be doing our second day of games using the new Shadow War supplement this weekend. My cult has gone through three games and advanced a little, while one of my hapless fighters was killed.

Shadow War Armageddon: First Thoughts

Shadow War: Armageddon came out last weekend with a pretty big hype train behind it. Copies of the boxed game were sold out pretty much everywhere, and scalpers were selling them online for huge sums of money.

Included in the boxed set are the rules, terrain, dice, templates, tokens, and two kill teams: space orks and space marine scouts.
