The end of this week sees the release of Age of Sigmar: Skirmish. Which appears to me to be a remake of Mordheim in the simplest sense. Small warbands fight in a mysterious city, fight for valuable resource (in this instance renown instead of warpstone) which allows you to add to your warband and play through campaigns.
It may not be with all the detail of Mordheim but I'm certainly buzzing about it. I played Mordheim a lot back in the day and loved the fast paced, personal level. So much so that even on this blog you'll see I tried to play a few skirmish type games before these rules were released. I also love the idea that every single model has a backstory and character. It just makes stuff funnier in-game and even in huge battles.
I'm also very excited about the warband releases. My Ironjawz currently consist of the starter box, a box of brutes and a Megaboss clampack. This give me:
- Megaboss (Gorgit Drakestompa)
- 1 Warchanter
- 5 Brutes
- 3 Gore-Gruntas
- 15 Ardboyz
Which is fantastic...but it leaves me with 5 Ardboyz I can't use without paying for 10 and no magic at all. The new warband box consists of: 5 Ardboyz, 5 Brutes and a Shaman. Congratulations GW! Instant purchase from me.
Whilst im in between homes at the moment so can't actually build or paint. I'll definitely pick up the box which will leave only the Maw-Krusha as needed for a complete model list.
ARE ANY OF YOU FABULOUS PEOPLE BASED IN LONDON AND FANCY A FEW GAMES OF AGE OF SIGMAR (OR SKIRMISH)?
I am 27 and will probably want a beer afterwards so underage people are out I'm afraid! 😂 With all the love!
