Facebook adverts got me again. I often like to think that I’m immune to advertising. And, most of the time, I am. However, every now and then, the targeting bastards get me and I throw some money at an impulse buy. So, when I saw that they offered two instruction booklets and two sets of Warhammer armies for only 7 bucks, I pulled the trigger. The actual price for each successive shipment for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is around 80 bucks. So, not insignificant, but still a good deal for what they offer.
What Do They Offer? (Part 1)
Well, if you want to check it out yourself, you can go to their web page and see. But, we try to go above and beyond whenever possible here at 2 Generations Gaming. As such, I’m going to show you what came in the first shipment. Then, each month, as I work my way through the new box, I will update with the new stuff. Already, I’m excited for this series.
I took Thursdays as my miniature day. I missed one day, so it took me three weeks to assemble the first two sets of miniatures. Then, I played through the scenario this afternoon to get some pictures of the actual set up and battle. The orc ended up coming from behind with a scorching 3 damage turn and finished off the priestess on the next turn. If he hadn’t, she most likely would have taken the win the turn after.
What Do They Offer? (Part 2)
I messed up a couple of these miniatures while taking them off of the holders and assembling them. Luckily, I had my trusty glue and that allowed me to fix them quickly and easily. As you can see, I still haven’t painted them, but that’s coming. I know, I know, just adding to my pile of shame. But I have my schedule now, so perhaps I can dig into this one like I did my Lego pile. I have only 2 more models to build there.
The second source book added armor saves to the battle. I only played through one round of combat to show the difference. But, now that I’ve played this one and the tutorial for the Starter set, it makes me want to play even more. By the end of the year, with the assistance of the subscription, I will no doubt be an expert noob of the game.
The Warhammer: Age of Sigmar subscription is pricey. I won’t lie to you and say it isn’t. 80 bucks a month is a bit of a non-starter for many of you, I’m sure. But, if you’ve ever wanted to get into Warhammer, it is one of the cheaper price points out there. Nothing says you can’t join and then quit after a couple of months. I intend to keep my subscription for as long as I can afford it and build this army to its fullest.
