Brimstone Horrors

So great is Magnar the Clawed, the first followers to flock to his banner, a pack of burning Brimstone Horrors. A clear indication Magnar’s path to glory will be great!




Path to Glory Campaign Game One

I had my first game of Path to Glory!

Chaos – Horstmann’s Heroes VS. Order-Tharndor’s Expeditionary Force

Battleplan: Altars of the Gods

Starting deployment.


20 Blue Horrors are a lot to deal with. I was able to overrun the right flank with them.

Magnar the Clawed and Tzaangors were a bit slow getting to the fight, but they did keep the objectives on my side secure.


Tzaangor Enlightened rushed up my left flank to contest the Altar of Change. Tharndor the Profiteer died challenging them. The Elightened later overran and slew the Grundstok Thunderers.


Horstmann’s Heroes came out victorious vs the punny Kharadon pirates, winning four glory. So fearsome is Magnar that a pack of Brimstone Horrors are now in cahoots with him.

Horstmann’s Heroes

Path to Glory warbands are all about the narrative that build with the warband as you play games. Win or loose your warband should have a good story to tell by the time you gain ten Glory Points.

I believe this narrative starts with a name for your warband and leader. Many sources can inspire you to make your choice. I took this as an opportunity to flip though some older books in my collection for some ideas.

I choose Horstmann’s Heroes for my warband’s name. Engrimm Horstmann’s story I found in Liber Chaotica Tzeentch. He was once an patriarch of College of Light till he fell in with Tzeentch. The “Heroes” was a play on Hogans Heroes.

For my leader, I found a short side-bar story in Realm of Chaos; The Lost and the Damned, about a Tzeentch champion named Magnar the Clawed. I liked the name, so took it.


The other troops I’ll give names to as I play games and they earn their glory!

Tzaangor Enlightened / Skyfires

My Path to Glory warband is now complete! I randomly rolled Tzaangor Enlightened. I would have rather had the Skyfire variant, I think they are better in Age of Sigmar. So, I decided to magnetize the bits so I could switch the parts for each of the units. I also magnetized them to the discs for easier transport.

Magnetizing these figs took a bit of planning.

Next post will be a introduction to my warband, followed by a short battle-report.

Conan – Zelata / N’Gora

Zelata and N’Gora are the last two characters I need to play; Conan The Legend of the Devil in Iron, campaign book.

Amra the Lion and Savage Belit I finished awhile ago (the other two characters needed).

The campaign is a tree of scenarios, depending on what happens players get to pick what gets played next, making paint planning a bit difficult. So far, I think I have four more figures to paint and then I’ll be ready to play.
