Opinion: Well, what a review! A massive three part review of Codex Space Marines came to a close and it was quite good! I would recommend going back to the previous two episodes to get the full picture of how detailed the guys got with this book. I cannot recommend their review highly enough and this one put the guys on the top of my list this week!
Opinion: Overall I was really pleased with this week’s show and the Battle Report as usual is the major highlight of the show. If I were to have a complaint, it was that their coverage of the Sister Codex was not very complete. Now I know we all know this book is really not the best, but it did not feel like their best effort. However, the content of the rest of the made up for it ten-fold!
Highlights: This week the guys are focusing on tips for getting that army painted! They open up the show with some news and this included the announcement of Codex Inquisition and some new Apoc Formations! They moved on to the main topic of the show, which is ‘Finishing off an Army’. This did not involve the purchasing or assembling of an army, but rather the painting of an army. The guys sat down and gave some great tips on first how to motivate yourself into painting army and next how to pick out that paint scheme that you really like. They also discussed ideas for a plan to paint an army, including setting monthly goals to meet, the Independent Characters Painting Challenge and Kanban Boards. They then give some great tips for getting a lot of models done quickly with techniques like washing, drybrushing, assembly line painting and sealing. They then talked about places on the internet where to find some tips and guides that show you how to paint a miniature. They closed out their show with their brief hobby progress updates where they discussed what they have been getting done in the hobby and gaming.
Opinion: This episode surely hit home for me this week as I have been in a painting funk for some time now. All of the tips the guys provided were just outstanding for both new and experienced player looking to get that army painted and for more tutorials on how to get that great tabletop look. Nice work guys!
Opinion: This was a great start to my week this week as I needed a good laugh. I genuinely laughed out loud at this week’s ‘Model of the Week’ segment! The mailbag was interesting, but the Chapter Tactic army builds were my personal favorite from this week’s show.
Opinion: This week’s show was short, sweet, and quite interesting. I have to say that the show started off with a great premise in preparing for a very competitive event but trailed off at the end quite a bit. I wish they would have stayed more on target and focused in on their lists and how they matched up to other net lists out there.
Second Founding – Episode 43 Adepticon is Coming!
