Games-Workshop at Gen Con 2015

2015-07-30 17.39.52So, a lot of questions have been going around about Games-Workshop, Warhammer:Age of Sigmar, and Gen Con. We all know that GW camped out a guy at Forgeworld open day and that they answered a lot of questions about the game. As I understand, they had some issues getting the guys they wanted over to the US for this year’s Gen Con, but they still have a both at the event and staff there. I had the opportunity Thursday afternoon near the closing of the hall to engage and talk to them about Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and the future of the game.

Gen Con 2015

Hey folks, I am at Gen Con 2015 and doing all of the good stuff that the best four days in gaming can provide. Along the way, when I remember or get the chance, the phone is getting pulled out and and I am snapping pictures of all of the coolest stuff at the convention.

Expect to hear more in an upcoming episode of the show about this great event and all of the cool stuff that is here!

Opening of the Heavens

Warhammer Age of Sigmar

Age of Sigmar game Khorne Chaos vs High Elves

Across the realms the sudden rolling thunder and scintillating flashes heralded no mere storm, but the start of a new era. Much rode on the sudden shock attacks of the Stormcast Eternals, for Sigmar knew he had only one shot at taking his almighty foes unaware. A single failure could spell disaster….

WiscoDice will be putting on a Warhammer: Age of Sigmar tournment at Pegasus Games on August 22, 2015 starting at 10 am. This is intended to be a narrative event, fun for everyone and everyone will walk away with something from this event!

Rules pack version 1.0, including round 1 scenario, is available for this event. Hopefully we can get 8-16 peeps out for this event.

There will be a $10 entrance fee that will contribute 100% to prize support for this event. If there are enough people out, we will have door prizes on top of the top awards in the rules pack. Event will be at Pegasus Games Madison on August 22nd. Schedule included in the rules pack.

Rules Pack Version 1


Battle Report: Lizardmen vs Tomb Kings

Second game of  Age Of Sigmar tonight against Kenny from the Combat Phase Podcast. In this game we played 50 wounds with 20 minimum models. I feel like the lists started out balanced and was much more comfortable with the rules. I am sure that a player could still find a way to bring a very broken list with those rules, but this made for a smaller game that we could play and still be able to focus on learning the mechanics and deal with disruptions. When I say disruptions, I really mean the 3 players that came in asking about the game and what’s new with these rules and how they could get started.

Age of Sigmar Starter Box

If you saw the video of New Stuff, Episode 3 on our YouTube channel then you know what I thought of the starter box. Now, I need to get this set built, painted and demo ready in 8 days after acquiring it. After figuring that it would take me 2 days roughly to build and undercoat it, that leaves about 6 days to paint 47 models. That’s roughly 8 models a day. Ooff.

Well, off to a good start, 20 models complete today. I have painted all of the Bloodreavers from the starter. These are possibly the most complex of the models with the most color changes, with lots of flesh tones, reds, silvers and bronzes. Check them out as well as the rest of the figures from the starter. I will keep adding them to this post through the rest of this week.

7/14/2015 Update: 5 Blood Warriors and 1 Bloodsecrator is now complete. Right on schedule so far.

7/16/2015 Update: The remains of the chaos in the starter. Chaos Lord, Bloodstoker, and Khorgorath complete.

7/17/2015 AM Update: 5 Stormcast Eternals wrapped up before I go to work. Just had to finish their basing from the previous night.


5500 Points Lizardmen vs Orcs and Goblins

Yeah, this is special. Giving 8th edition the kind of respect going out that it deserves. Kenny and I have a combined close to 700 models on the table. Ok, 400+ are just in Orcs and Goblins figures!

Kenny is playing the Lizardmen and I am playing the Orcs and Goblins.

Game is over and clean up is finished. Look for the video and more pictures to be added soon from Kenny’s side of the game!

The End Times Campaign: Week 3

2015-04-20 21.34.59

The third week has been played out and good times were had by all of us that made it out. We had 6 of us out when we were making pairings so went with that. We had 2 more show up later, but it was too late for pairings as we were all playing and those two got to hang out and hobby. I will note that pairings were much more exciting with 5 players per team then three, but even then, there was strategy afoot in the pairings. While chaos has been on a tear with last week’s victories, order still controlled far more of the old world. With eyes set on the Battle for Karak Eight Peaks and the fall of Riekland, we paired up and played Warhammer.

  1. High Elves (Fred) vs Warriors of Chaos (Conesy)
  2. Dwarfs (Gordon) vs Skaven (Trevor)
  3. Empire (Nick) vs Ogres (Ben)

The End Times Campaign: Week 2

2015-04-13 21.56.52

Another week is in the books, and what a week it was! Huge shifts in the campaign this week as the games were played and things were fast and furious. This week we had 11 players out which helped get everyone excited. After some decision making of who would play who, it was on to the match ups. The forces of Chaos still very down on the number of locations controlled was able to pick first, and led the choices of match ups. Overall, this system seems to work pretty well and lends a real team aspect to things. One thing I will note, and it’s not in the rules pack, but if your group tends to pick the same match ups every week, then you should have a rule in place to force the match ups to be different opponents for the first few picks. When you get down to the last two picks or so, you can’t help things as we did have one repeat match up.

  1. Undead Legion (Stark) vs Ogres (Eric)
  2. Dwarfs (Gordon) vs Warriors of Chaos (Conesy)
  3. Empire (Nick) vs Ogres (Big Ben R.)
  4. High Elves (Fred) vs Warriors of Chaos (Brian)
  5. High Elves (Kenny K) vs Skaven (Trevor) vs Ogres (Aaron)

The End Times Campaign: Week 1

  • 2015-04-06 21.07.17

Week one of our End Times campaign is set and done, and wow, what a great night! So, let’s set this up a little. It’s Wisconsin. The state’s big school, University of Wisconsin – Madison’s college basketball team is playing for national championships. Most of the state is at a bar or in front of their TV and here we were, 10 dedicated Warhammer players gather at our favorite local game store in town, . People were excited too, a lot of folks there before the normal start time and everyone there plenty early, by quarter after 6.

So, teams were made of 5 players each and after some waiting for order to select their supreme commander we went into the choosing opponents. Wanting to lock in a sure win (well maybe not so sure, but…) I choose to have our skaven player (Trevor) match up against Dwarfs (Gordon). Order picked next, and matched up Lizardmen (Kenny) vs our Ogre recruits (Eric). The remaining match ups were selected below:

  1. Skaven (Trevor) vs. Dwarfs (Gordon)
  2. Lizardmen (Kenny) vs. Ogres (Eric)
  3. Orcs and Goblins (Paul) vs. Empire (Nick)
  4. Undead Legion (Stark) vs. Warriors of Chaos (myself)
  5. Warriors of Chaos (Brian) vs. High Elves (Fred)
