Episode 86 – The Lore Of Beasts Review, BoTC and WM/H ETC Reports


Episode Sponsor – Clash of Swords – A Warhammer Fantasy Tournamenta 1 day Warhammer Fantasy tournament at Firestorm Games in Cardiff called Clash of Swords. There will be 3 games at 2400 points per army (with some armies getting more points). The event will be on the 1st of September. The idea behind the event is to trial out a new comp pack that tries to balance the armies to a certain degree without changing too many of the rules for the game. Some people have mentioned it as being a mid-way point between SCGT comp (light) and ETC comp (hard).

Fortnight in Fantasy.

Ben: Nope, none. Warmachine ETC though……
Mark: BotC report, 1st place with his Tomb Kings

    I think it’s actually a good idea to keep raising the issue of “Failcast” so that GW managers don’t convince themselves that it’s okay to sell sub-par products. Grumbling is, of course, wearisome but it occurs because the issue has not been dealt with professionally and time continues to pass. Simply put, what we all want to hear  from GW is a clear recognition of the issue (not a rather cynical transformation of it into a business opportunity through selling repairing products) and a firm commitment to resolve it. Until that happens the bad feeling will remain.
