Rise of Empires: Realm Hoppers September Objective

Welcome to the first Month of the Realm Hoppers campaign! 

So now you know what it is all about, it is time to get into the meat of the campaign. Start building your war band, start improving your General and start claiming the Dark Crystals!

Painting your war band.

Here is the best and easiest way of collecting renown points, for every war scroll that is painted and based, then posted up to the blog, you will earn a renown point. Renown points will enable your General to level up and in turn collect Dark Crystals. You can only Level up once per month. To get to Level 1, you need 8 Renown points.

For every 8 renown points you earn, you can collect either a Treasure Card or Secondary Objective Card. For every Level up you gain, you can collect a Skill Card. You cannot have more than 3 cards in your possession at anytime.

Rise of Empires: Realm Hoppers Online Campaign

Welcome to the new Online Campaign for Age of Sigmar: Rise of Empires. Realm Hoppers.

What is Realm Hoppers?
This is a brand new style of campaign gaming in the Age of Sigmar. It combines Path to Glory (PtG), Ladder Style campaigns, Matrix, Silver Tower dungeon crawler. You become a Hero in the Mortal and Chaos Realms, questing to locate Dark Crystals in the aftermath of the Age of Chaos. This is set after the Season of War and All-gates in the timeline. You will find yourself fighting through battle plans, obtaining treasure which can be exchanged on the Black Market, gaining Skills and most importantly growing your war band to help you along the way.

How do I take part?
All you need to start is your imagination. Register your interest on, I will send you an email invitation to the blog. From here you can create your blog posts detailing your victories in your battles, post up newly painted war scroll pics or create short stories for your war band. You will receive renown points which will level up your Character. Once a month, you will receive a custom battle plan that will enable you to try and obtain Dark Crystals. With these Dark Crystals, you can exchange them for Skills, Treasure or Renown. Or you can instead try and harness their power to boost your Generals Stat line.

Keep on Rotting in the Free World - Cholothrax the Ascended!

Thanks to Cholothrax's successful alliance with the Skaven of Clan Festerscar, the Rotbringers were experiencing success after success in the Realm of Beasts. Cholophract remembered his time serving under Cholothrax before his disappearance. He often wondered what had happened to his brother after he followed the Prophet through the Rot Tree and if he'd live long enough to see him again... 

Cholophract and the other leaders of the Rotbringers were close to figuring out the correct ritual to traversing the Rot Tree, being able to use it in the manner of a regular realm gate, and when the moment came, he would mount an expedition into the other realms to find Cholothrax...

Hey guys, bit late on this one, but here's my daemon prince, Cholothrax the Ascended! He completes my Nurgle army for now...  I'm now getting ready for the Realm Hoppers campaign, painting up my general! Looking forward to rolling on the Path to Glory tables!

Season of War has finished!

Thank you everybody who took part in the Season of War through HobbyHammer. It was really great to see so many people embracing this and getting war scrolls painted and battles played! As you have probably seen, all three cities were won by Order. So finally Order has 3 strongholds in the Realm of Ghyran!

HobbyHammer was a little different, Chaos won the day! followed closely by Death. This was a lot of fun to put on. Which has given me some great ideas for online campaigns going forward. For now, the website will be rested, but in a few weeks I will be announcing a new and exciting campaign, one that leads on from the Rise of Empires and Season of War.

I look forward to bring ing this to you soon!

The Ophidian Empire - 7

Final two entries :(

Sunday, 14 August 2016

If we can still report games from today, my Stormcast had one victory for order.
One more Stormcast Warscroll for the campaign.


Nef done at last, a really tricky kit and not a stable one at all, is a good looking miniature though. Should have another 10 zombies done tommorow and am working on a wraith where I'm going to try some complex (for me) blending - a rising from the grave and becoming coporeal type effect

The Ophidian Empire - 5

Coming towards the end (so much as an army is ever complete) of this project. I have a Mortarch in progress, 10 zombies, 5 black knights and a garden of Morr to go, I doubt all of that will be done by the campaign's end but the Mortarch and zombies should be doable.

Small update this time round.

 A new scroll of 10 spear skeletons

Season of War Campaign: Week 4 - Raze and Ruin

So we are into the final week of the Season of War campaign in the Realm of Ghyran and onto the 4th and final battle plan! This week's narrative agenda shows the armies battling well within the city walls, each player has a terrain piece to act as their stronghold, set up is usual alternating set up rules.

The Bloodied Horde - Painted Warscroll

Chaos Marauders

This post has been updated on the campaign! 1 Warscroll painted for Chaos Alliance! Thank you.

Season of War Battle Reps - Weeks 1 & 2

Four battles to report:

Week 1

A Clash of Battlelines - Order vs Chaos

My Wyldheart Wargrove (allied with some Stormcasts) faced off against Khorne's Bloodied Horde. The match came down to a single battleshock test at the very end of turn 5, Order managed to pull out a minor victory when a single remaining chaos knight failed the test.


Battlelines are formed

Season of War Campaign Battle Results

I have two battles to report.

The first battle was a 3 player free for all between Chaos, Destruction, and Order.  At the end of a hard fought 5 Rounds, I managed to pull out a minor victory for Order with 60 more army points left on the table than Chaos.  Destruction lost their last unit the middle of round 5.

The second battle was between Order (me) and Destruction.  We played the Take and Hold Battleplan.  I managed to retreat from combats to claim both objectives on the top of round 4 to score a Major Victory.

Two points for Order!

This post has been updated on the campaign! 2 battles won for Order Alliance! Thank you.
