AoS Maggotkin of Nurgle Blightkings

It’s not only my Warhammer 40k project that’s getting the Nurgle treatment, as I’ve also managed to paint a unit of Blightkings after a some delay. These giant warriors of pure hideousness are slow and clumsy but can cause a bad flu. As part of my mixed warband of Nurgle models these guys will actContinue reading “AoS Maggotkin of Nurgle Blightkings”

Summer of Hobbying 2019: combined Nurgle force (AoS)

Anyone order a slice of fungus toad bleak throat rot pizza? No? These chaps haven’t been on the blog for a couple of years now, in fact they were still AoS 1.0 last time I checked. But now that Maggotkin of Nurgle and AoS 2.0 came out last year, it’s time to bring this projectContinue reading “Summer of Hobbying 2019: combined Nurgle force (AoS)”

Nurgle month- week one: Stagrot Gladiators (BlightKings), and the Stagrot warband

The first week of Nurgle month will start with my newly painted Blightkings to mark the preorder release of the Maggotkin of Nurgle. Since this is my only AoS themed Nurgle force for this month, I thought I’d finish the unit off as soon as possible (the bases were left plain as I need moreContinue reading “Nurgle month- week one: Stagrot Gladiators (BlightKings), and the Stagrot warband”

New Years resolutions- 2018

Like last year, I do my own New Years resolution for my hobby work, wether it’s getting an army done on a deadline, or focusing on being more involved with communication with the community. Before I do my 2018 resolutions, lets take a look at last years list and see if I’ve completed any (orContinue reading “New Years resolutions- 2018”

January- Nurgle month

Hello, and welcome to the first post of 2018 on Bjorn the Stormborn. It’s been heck of a year in 2017 working on this blog, I’ve got tons of models painted (including many units that I haven’t painted for over 7-8 years), I’m pleased that I’m making progress with getting backlogs done. I’ve had loadsContinue reading “January- Nurgle month”

12 days of winter [day 6]: The Grey-mane Dynasty lore series- the art of the Grey-mane, year 1

This year was the start of a long series of my homebrew lore series on the Grey-mane dynasty for AoS. The lore was planned to tie all of my AoS factions from an origin root that would spread out and build many perspectives from different factions. However, the story couldn’t be fully realised without theContinue reading “12 days of winter [day 6]: The Grey-mane Dynasty lore series- the art of the Grey-mane, year 1”

The Stagrot Gladiators (AoS Skirmish faction spotlight) [part 2 of 2]

After playing my first game of AoS Skirmish, I found the game to be really engaging to play. This inspired me to create warbands that are inspired by real world history, lore for Warhammer fantasy and Age of Sigmar. Each faction will have its own unique story and culture based on inspiration that best suitedContinue reading “The Stagrot Gladiators (AoS Skirmish faction spotlight) [part 2 of 2]”

AoS Skirmish 

This week I played my first game of AoS Skirmish using my Khorne Bloodbound faction, and I’ve got to say, it was really *fun! I’m really engaged to do more games with Skirmish, as I can see a lot of potential to create more focused narrative stories. (*-Not because my Aspiring Deathbringer nearly destroyed aContinue reading “AoS Skirmish “
