Sigmar wants you...

Sigmar's Storm has come and War is everywhere...

Like most of you I thought War was already here...

I can only imagine this post from Games Workshop's Facebook Page is getting us hyped for the living campaign.  The time will soon be upon us to take our armies to the field and battle it out for the fate of the Mortal Realms and I cannot think of a better time to bring those old and new players on the fence into the game.  There are still plenty of scattered players out there who may not realize how large and connected our community is at its core and I would challenge everyone to invite one friend this summer to join you in this hobby.

A good way to get started would be the Age of Sigmar starter set.  It is a great way to begin a new (or grow an old) army with your friend and not only game with them, but hobby with them as well.  Help them pick out a unit that draws them.  Help them build and paint it if they want.  Then bring them into the stores to play and have a hand in the future of the story.  They will be buying into this lifelong hobby and the actual events of the campaign.

It has been almost one year since Age of Sigmar arrived and the game finally has traction.  Heads are turning and the interest is growing once again.  Those of us that remained faithful need to be the catalyst in getting the scattered groups directed to podcasts, forums, and social media pages so the community can become stronger them Sigmarite.

I am very excited to see what this week brings and I hope the above rambling encouraged all of you just the same.  If we each get one friend involved in this game/hobby then we can enter year two stronger then anyone would have imagined this time last year.

  1. I love the painting and collecting side of the hobby, but have never managed to get in to the game. It's a shame, because I know that I am missing out on so much, but even with AoS dumbing the rules and complications down I still find the game difficult to understand. I guess i'm just not wired the right way for it. :(
