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

Painting and modeling.

Ben: Painted a couple of models for my warmachine army.  Totally failing with my CD’s.  Does anyone want to paint them for me?  A commission service do it in exchange for ads???
