My boss is having a few days off work, so I thought i'd spend the time printing out the entire list of rules and warscroll compendiums for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.

I printed one of each of the army lists and a couple of copies of the rules. All in lovely plastic pockets and in a presentation folder. It's a good few inches thick once it's all printed out.

Fuck them for not giving me a pay rise.

Ok, so this is such a tiny thing, but it was awesome and so I'm going to share it.

Right, so last night me and my pal were having a 1500 point game of 40k (well 30k Emperor's Children vs 40k Imperial Fists). Almost 1/3rd of my army was taken up of Captain Tiberius (Eidolon in disguise), a command squad and an apothecary. Not the most points effective way of doing it, but I wanted to use him so fight me. Anyway, so Tiberius and his unit charge up the middle and into a unit of 5 terminators and a librarian. Challenges the sergeant, kills him with his I7 thunderhammer and the rest of the squad leaving only the librarian, who the rest of the command squad fail to kill. Then in charges my pal's captain and command squad. 2 turns later everything that is his in the combat is dead and I think I lost 1 chosen marine. They move up to an objective. Now, ~12" to their right is a predator which in my turn I stun so it can only Snap Shot. Now, this is where the cool bit comes in.

To try and force me off the objective (because it's really close to a wall on one side and it's about 4th/5th turn at this point) my mate Tank Shocks my command squad. Now, they're Fearless from the Legion Standard so can hop out the way. However, we're both having fun and I've got most of the objectives so I figure "What the hell, let's do death or glory with Tiberius! Either way, it'll end up as a funny story".

So, Tiberius (against tactically sound reason) steps up to face down this Predator. He swings, gets a 2 but it's ok, because his thunderhammer is master-crafted so he gets a re-roll, which is a 3. Now, he needs a 3 or more to get a penetrating hit on this Predator, which he gets. Then, we roll on the damage table, and it's a 6! So Tiberius steps up and hits this tank so hard it flips over and explodes Laughter and comments about how cool that was from both me and my pal ensue

So yeah, that was fun.

Death or Glory attacks hit automatically mate. Still awesome though!!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

So last night I played one of the most important concerts of my career; warmup for no other than Black Label Society. There were like 800 people there and we shared the grand stage with the main event. Needless to say it was a bit intimidating - But we went out there and gave it our best.

It seems to have paid off:

If you Google Translate the article, we actually get credit for outperforming BLS O.o

Now excuse me while I go bathe myself in cold water to ease my ego.

Today was the first time I've ever even seen the Tactical Objective card 'Domination' achieved, let alone managed it myself - Guilliman bless the Demi-Company. Seven VPs from one card, don't mind if I do!
