The End Times: Nagash - Review

So the End Times have finally come.

It's a bold move from Games Workshop. Let's see if it pays off.


This has turned out a much longer post than I usually do and it rambles on a bit in places, in fact most of it rambles but I hope you enjoy this review anyway. I will start with some general comments, work may way through the two books and end on a bit of a conclusion.

Moving the story forward is certainly a great way to reinvigorate interest in the system and it was certainly enough to get me to buy a £50 book. It is in fact two books contained within a rather stylish slipcase: the first is a huge 300 pageish volume focused on fluff and the second is about 100 pages of various rules.

The entire thing is quite beautiful; it is not only well presented but is replete with new artwork and vast amounts of literary content. So much content in fact that it has taken me about two weeks to read and properly digest it all. This is a must have for any avid Warhammer collector and lovers of the background such as myself. I think this can only be a good thing for the game by allowing it to change and grow in new directions. Whilst I love the Warhammer world I am excited by the opportunities moving the story forwards entails and I can say now that it seems far better executed thus far than Storm of Chaos.

Game of Thrones - Brotherhood Without Banners

The Brotherhood Without Banners makes a nice neutral war band to add to my growing collection of converted 'Game of Thrones' miniatures. After this I have several other mini-projects set in Westeros that I have planned and which you can no doubt guess from looking at the 'A Game Of Thrones' page on the bar near the top.

Army Update - The Seventh Dynasty

This army first appeared on the blog as one of my first posts as the start of my Army Showcase series and can be seen here: The Van Fell Dynasty Part 1 and Part 2. Since then I have doubled the army in size, repainted a lot of it and largely rewritten the army background.

Army Update - Hellcarian Black Guard

With the release of the new Astra Militarum Codex I decided it was time for my Imperial Guard to get some attention. The last time they were on the blog they looked like this: The Hellcaris 1st Legion. They have since had a slight injection of colour to make them look more interesting, a few small additions and some models such as my Veterans who have had their look updated with new bits I have picked up. Other than that it is essentially the same force but this time I have chosen to write some background to accompany them.

Inquisitor Harrison Venner V

Prepare yourselves for a short history lesson as I introduce you to the first of my three Hellcarian Inquisitors: Inquisitor Harrison Venner V who comes from a long line of zealous sycophants who have served as lapdogs to far more powerful Inquisitors. After studying 17th century England for the past two years I took some inspiration from some obscure figures that I thought were interesting and converted up a small war band to fight alongside my Imperial armies.
