How to Speed Paint Nurgle Plaguebearers

We're back once again for another painting video and this time it's how to speed paint Nurgle Plaguebearers, this technique I used across all of my Nurgle army and is a quick and effective way to get a great looking army out on the tabletop.

As always if you like what you see please consider liking and subscribing to the channel for all our latest videos.

How to Paint Lava Basing

We've officially launched the Tales of Sigmar YouTube channel with some painting videos, the first is showing how to paint lava basing like what is seen on my recent Ironjawz army.

If you like what you see please give it a like and subscribe to the channel, the plan is once things go back to relative normality we're going to start battle reports on the channel.

Age of Sigmar Auxiliary Objective Cards

We have created some custom made Auxiliary Objective Cards for use in Matched Play games using the General's Handbook 2020. We've created two different sizes that can be downloaded below and printed off;

Standard Size: This is a size that would fit in a 'normal' card sleeve and can be glued onto playing cards/Magic The Gathering Cards or anything of the similar size.

Large Size: These are slightly larger and are designed to be printed and laminated to keep protected.
