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:

A Very Savage Christmas!

Something’s brewing…… and it happens to be a Christmas Age of Sigmar tournament here in sunny (!) old Northamptonshire.

This is the first organised tournament for two years that I know of, that is being carried out in my home county. The tournament is being organised by Savage Hammer Gaming in conjunction with Cooper Gaming Ltd.

It takes place on 18th December at Higham Ferrers Junior School Hall and to take part you’ll need to bring a fully painted 2,000 point army using the points from the Generals Handbook 2021, Dice (why not buy some Savage Hammer Gaming dice?), a tape measure, objective markers and two copies of your army list.

There are a number of prizes on offer over the course of the day as well, with awards going to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as most sporting player and best painted army. They’ll also be a wooden spoon prize!
