Episode 56: Lords of Undeath

Episode 56

The hosts get together to discuss the new hotness, Nagash and Warhammer: The End Times. A very opinionated discussion about the various changes and differences that are happening both in the fluff in this first addition to Warhammer with the End Times as well as new rules that are posed.

The hosts also discuss a new contest. To get the details though, you’ll just need to listen to the episode. We will tell you that one of the prizes in the drawing will be a brand new, still in shrink wrap copy of the spell cards for the Lore of Undeath! We will be drawing for a winner in this contest on Halloween 2014. Good luck!

Episode 55: Firing Up the Hobby

Episode 55

In this episode, our hosts are joined by local Madison Warhammer new guy Eric the StoneMonk. In the main topic, the hosts explore getting motivated to work on hobby stuff. After all, this is the first step to actually getting models on the table and being played with! Several thoughts are discussed on how to change up what your doing to get that paint brush or hobby knife and glue going and get back to work on your models.

Also recapped is the WWHFB Tournament of Champions which was held at Pegasus games. This was a great, small and friendly tournament that has been done for the second time. Listen to see how the games went and who the winners were.

Mortarch of Nagash Unboxing

Well, another week of releases and now we have the dreaded Mortarch’s of Nagash out. His mightiest of his Mortarch’s ride these giant terrifying mounts, which are new for them and something you don’t have an option for in their respective army books. These models all look pretty close to the same, but they have enough bits to make each one’s mount unique. Each rider has their own bits to make the models really unique.

What really had me intrigued about this kit was whether or not I could snag enough of the Arkhan the black bits to make an actual infantry version of the model for use with my Tomb King army when the rules for the army of undeath isn’t legal. Looking at the bits, it looks like this is definitely very viable as an option, but there is going to be some significant work adjusting the model or finding a set of legs that I can use to mount the figure on that will fit the figure well enough. Might just be a spot for me to work in some of those new sculpting skills.

Slaanesh Chaos Furies

These models go back a long ways to when I was working on my Beastmen army. I only ever finished 3 complete models at the time before I had a case of regrets and really stopped playing the army. So little did I realize when I started this unit 2 years ago (or three, or whatever it really was…) that I would be re-purposing them for a Daemon army.

I want to note that this conversion, while probably the most extensive ones I have ever done are not my original ideas. You can search the net for a number of ideas like these. Heck, that’s how I came up with this idea myself! While I was working on the Beastmen, after doing the research, did I realize another very highly recognized hobbiest of Pointhammered fame had done a very similar conversion himself. It kind of put a break on this hobby project and I moved on with other things and other armies at the time.
