Episode 94 – The Lore of Metal Review

In episode 94 Gareth, Mark and Ben have a live studio audience (of 1!) as we chat about the Beasthammer Tournament, handling bad Sportsmanship as a community, the Black Library Weekender and we review the Lore of Metal.

Fortnight in Fantasy.

In the last fortnight since episode 93 Gareth grabbed a game vs Jak Spedding during a impromptu gaming session at Warhammer World and learned about the ‘Closing the Door’ rules, Mark has been using his Tomb Kings again and played against Ed with his new Empire Army.  We talk about how the Tomb Kings struggle against aggressive lists.  We also talk about buildings having a negative impact on Marks game.
Mark and Gareth went to the Beasthammer tournament down in Portsmouth.  They both chat about the highlights from their games and have a rundown of the event overall.  In summary they thought it was a good event with a few niggles and will certainly go back next year. You can find the full results on The Warhammer Forum.
In the aftermath of the event there has been a lot of talk about sportsmanship and how to handle it as a community so we give our take on that.
Ben went to the Black Library Weekender with Marcus.  We caught a buch of Horus Heresy seminars.  There are some recordings form these seminars in the snake eyes members area.  Check out the Horus Heresy blog by Marcus – baddice.co.uk/heresy
Mark has been plugging away on the Orcs and Goblins and has finished a unit of Squigs and Handlers.

The Lore of Metal Review

Gareth reads the Lore of Metal spells and the 3 of us give our thoughts on their use in the game.
We talk about;
  • Why the lore of metal can be the best and worst lore in of magic in the game
  • Different roles that the lore of metal can fill
  • How you can use the lore of metal even against armies with no armour.
  • How to get the best from the lore of metal by combining it with other Lore ‘s of Magic.
  • What lore of magic is good for supporting the lore of metal
  • What other magic the lore of metal is good at supporting

Episode 92 – The Lore of Death Review

The Lore of Death Review.

In this episode we get together to review the Lore of Death and also talk about some recent events we have attended.

Fortnight in Fantasy

Mark has been painting Skeleton Warriors for his tomb kings army using the Vampire Counts Skeletons with the Tomb King warrior shields.  Ben has not done any hobby this fortnight and should be duly chastised!  Gareth has been given a Mortis Engine by Super Hobbyist Steve Wren.  Huge thanks to Steve for that one.

In gaming we all attended the Brothers In Arms Team event where Gareth got his taste of top table gaming as we faced all 3 of the final top 3 teams.  Mark and Gareth talk about their first taste of a team event and how it was different to a normal single tournament.

Open War Army Swap

Mark also played in a 1 day tournament where 8 from the 24 players decided to do a random army swap.  Mark used this High Elves army:

Archmage Metal
Mage Light
Bsb
30 spears
10 archers
16 archers
23 lions
6 Swordsmasters
5 Swordsmasters
5 Swordsmasters
5 dragon princes
3 eagles
1 repeater boltthrower

The list was widely renowned as being a soft one but Mark managed to come in 2nd place.

The Lore of Death Review

The Lore of Death is one of the lores in the game that really have a huge impact on games in terms of overall strategy, tactics and list building.  We run down the Lore Attribute and each of the spells giving in-depth details of how they work and what are their best applications.  As with our other reviews we cover how to get the best from the Lore of Death by using it in combination with other lores and units in your army.

Gareth’s Query Corner

Gareth has had more letters from the postman!  Chris Taylor’s wife, Helen, asks if the show is appropriate for her 3 week old baby and what army should she buy for her daughter.  Mike from Alberta, Canada also sent a letter and wants to know if big beards are creepy!  We get asked about Giants, Vampires vs Hydras, FAQ queries about Lore of Beasts.  We have a load of questions from  Facebook, the first one is talking a out comping big spells effecting the meta game, James (Nigella) Asks about Empire Detachments and scoring points, Grant asks how to get none nerd friends into Warhammer.  Over on twitter We get asked about different order of shooting and what scenarios force scouts to deploy as normal.
