As I mentioned in my last Under the Brush post, the challenge for June was to paint 11 miniatures in honor of Jason’s birthday on June 11. Eleven just happens to be the starting number of a Blood Bowl team and I just so happened to be preparing a new team for my league’s summer season, so it was almost as if the stars aligned.
A member of the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire group on Facebook got his White Dwarf early in the mail and posted this interesting shot of upcoming Shadespire products. We already knew the leader cards pack was coming, but new boards!? The description says the Shattered City Board Pack is “filled with innumerable dangers, from bottomless pits to hidden blades.” The full rules will be included with each board set. It will be interesting to see how players tailor their decks to these new threats on the board.
I took the liberty of cropping in on the boards and blowing the images up a little. Looks like one board has some orbs of glowing light, the other a flaming brazier and some pits?
Also coming are some card sleeves, generic for any warband and includes sleeves for power and objective cards. I’m guessing those have different art on the back. Can’t wait to hear more about these new boards.
I was out on vacation last week so I’m still catching up on gaming news, but last Friday Games Workshop casually dropped a couple of tidbits for us from the UK Games Expo. Warhammer Community buried the lead but I won’t …
I woke up this morning to the alarm going off on my phone, as I roll over to hit the snooze my bleary eyes so a push notification from YouTube telling me Warhammer TV has posted a new video, a trailer for Soul Wars. What’s this, my brain asks? My bleary eyes take in the info, then check Warhammer Community to see a news post about a mile long detailing all the million awesome things coming to Age of Sigmar this month.
As Jeff mentioned in his post yesterday, we have together with another buddy, been working on a monthly painting challenge for the month of May. With Memorial Day being the holiday of the month we decided to honor troops everywhere by painting up 10 standard troop types. We’re all currently working on projects in different gaming systems, so an even number like 10 regular troopers seemed like a good fit.
I took part in a ‘Painting Challenge’ this month and used the opportunity to finish out the Crypt Ghouls for my ‘Chamber of the Bloodied Dawn’ Flesh Eater Courts army. Here are my take away thoughts painting these ghoulies out to a 1000pt army.
“The Realmgate Wars are over.
Elixia is shattered.
The Hammers of Sigmar have abandoned Chamon.
But we remain…We who swore to protect Celemnis in this twisted realm.
For the Maiden!”

Early in 2017, I picked up a copy of Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower…and began my relationship with Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar setting. I was initially put off of Age of Sigmar after the destruction of the beloved Old World, but have became a bigger fan of this new setting than I was of the former one. It seemed some of my enthusiasm splashed onto my son as he got the bug as well and wanted to paint up some Stormcast. A buddy hooked us up on a fantastic deal on an AoS Starter set with the Stormcast side mostly painted. My son was in luck!
