So You Want to be a Winner?

Yesterday the AoS Coach interviewed Las Vegas Open Winner Gavin Grigar on his path to victory.

A great video for anyone who wants some tips on improving their tournament performances.

What is Age of Sigmar?

After Declan’s great article on getting started with Warmaster, we decided to perhaps turn this into a little series. So today I bring you getting started in Age of Sigmar!

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is a skirmish tabletop game for two or more players where you command several armies from a huge range that goes from Humans, Dwarves, High Elves, Undead Vampires, Orcs, Beastman and lots of races. This book provides you with all the rules you need to play, and guides you through collecting and painting your own army of Citadel miniatures.

It has been given a rating of 6.7 on BoardGameGeek from 600+ ratings.

Games Workshop has produced a number of videos explaining how to play Age of Sigmar.

1. Introduction

2. Overview

3. Warscrolls

4. Hero Phase

5. Movement Phase

6. Shooting Phase

7. Charge Phase

8. Combat Phase

9. Battleshock Phase

As this is a Games Workshop game, there are tonnes of support and websites out there dedicated to the Age of Sigmar. Some of my favourites include:

Warscroll Builder (Allowing you to make lists quickly)
The Honest Wargamer Scorecard

WD157 Battle Report – Warhammer Fantasy (The Battle of Osterwald)

This battle report saw Jervis Johnson (Goblins) face off against Robin Dews (Empire).


WD155 Battle Report – Warhammer Fantasy (Battle of Red Axe Pass)

This battle report saw Nigel Stillman (Goblins) face off against Alan Perry (High Elves).


WD107 Battle Report – Warhammer Fantasy (24 Hours at Carik Mound)

This is the very first White Dwarf Battle Report ever published back in issue #107 (November 1988). This used the 3rd edition of Warhammer Fantasy for the rules.


Depending on how this goes down, I may make this a regular weekly feature.

Solo Wargaming for your Favourite Games

I’m in the process of creating a series of Wargaming Aids which allow players to play their favourite games in a single player format against an AI controlled enemy army. To find out more on this click here.

For as little as £1 a month (the price of a chocolate bar) you can help support me in this endeavour and receive cool perks as a thank you, such as access to our Discord Server as well as downloadable copies of the gaming aids which you can print out and use at home.

Why not pop over to Patreon and sign up and help me in this project? Money raised will go towards making these as physical products.
