Episode 40: The Sands of Time

Episode 40

In episode 40 our hosts are finally able to get back to more of our standard format with special guest and original host Paul Wagner in the studio. On top of that, we talk about the new Lizardmen in our Cheesecurd segment and for our main topic we discuss techniques that you might be able to employ to find time, or at least to make time, when your constantly busy and you just don’t feel like you have enough of it.

We also have an Awesome Models you might have missed where we talk about Scibor Miniatures, and in particular their dwarf range. You can check out Scibor Miniatures and see for yourself why Conesy is so high on these models.

So, How Do I Make a Forest Stand?

This is our second episode in our How to make terrain series. Conesy goes into describing steps to make a forest stand. Don’t worry, there is a lot more here then just talking about cutting a board and putting some flock on it! While a fairly basic project at face value, this video takes you more into the little details that help take your terrain piece from just a basic piece to something that really starts to pop and come to life on the wargame table.

So, What Do I Need to Make Terrain?

I have had a number of comments and questions recently about terrain manufacturing and what you need to get started. Let me state that I enjoy making terrain as much if not more then I like painting minatures or even possibly playing a game. There is something just wholesome about making a terrain project in my mind that is just special. After all, unlike a miniature, a good terrain project is something that is unique and completely your own. Sure, there are molds out there and kits like the Games-Workshop ones (which are really cool I might add and I have a bunch of them in my collection as well), but if you want something special to play on then you need to be able to make it yourself.

Terrain can add huge flavor and fluff aspects to your games. Perhaps your playing your dwarfs and want to fight a battles where your dwarfs are defending their hold. Another idea could, could be that you feel your empire Arch Lector wants to take the battle to chaos and your battles take place in the far northern mutated chaos wastes. Making your own terrain can add so much to your games.

Episode 39b: Curse of the Pharoah

Episode 39b

Episode 39 just ended up too big to do in one episode, so we split it in two! In 39b, the hosts pick up where they left off with the final 3 turns of the game. While it wasn’t too harrowing when we left our hosts in 39a, this not so epic conclusion of the game has some real high points.

Follow along with the podcast with these pictures of the battle.

Stay tuned to the very end of the show, where The Fan has an announcement about something he has worked up for Episode 40!

Episode 39a: Stolen Treasures

Episode 39a

Episode 39 just ended up too big to do in one episode, so we split it in two! In 39a, the hosts get together and talk about what’s been going on, in particular recap the WWHFB Tournament of Champions that was held at The Last Square in Madison. This was a small tournament with ten people playing in it (counting Conesy the ringer).

Things move though to a battle that’s been brewing for a little while with Brian’s Brettonians vs. Conesy’s Tomb Kings. King Ra’Men (Conesy’s General) seeks vengeance upon a rural Brettonian village seeking treasures that were plundered from the tombs of his lesser nobles. Little did he anticipate, that Lord Boromir was flying out to meet him. In this meeting engagement, will Prince Ra’Men return victorious. You’ll have to listen to the first half of the battle in this episode and tune into 39b to find out who wins!

Follow along with the podcast with these pictures of the battle.
