I had my first experience playing Warhammer Sigmar last weekend and it was definitely an encouraging one. This variant of the old warhammer game I played a few years ago has been totally transformed and I must admit for the better. When Sigmar came out a few years ago I just dismissed it without really been interested in giving it ago, moving away from 28mm fantasy battles to start different historical projects, really I think I just dismissed it as been a glorified skirmish game. Well here are at the present day and I openly admit I called that one wrong, last weekends game really ignited my intest again in 28mm Fantsy wargaming. I found warhammer Sigmar to be a really fun set of rules and both my dad and myself had a really enjoyable afternoons gaming. My dad has been steadily buying/painting the Storm Cast eternal and Blood gods armies and had enough done to have a decent size game. We played a open war game drawing a random card for deployment etc etc. The mission was nice and simple, scoring a certain number of points for models killed and double points for characters killed
The Warband of the blood gods played by yours truly
My dad played the lesser numbered but equally powerful storm cast eternal
Skull crushers of Khorne trample underfoot the Liberators, these boys hit hard!
The blood God warriors start to turn the eternals flank as the game tips in the chaos favour
The infamous charge by the blood reavers.......
The battlefield shows only troops in red armour remaining on the field aside from the storm cast eternal characters but this wax still not enough to se her victory.
We made one or two rule errors during the game and obviously forgot about certain abilities but the game was highly enjoyable and I am looking forward to the next one, next time keeping track of my points scored during the game ha ha.
