We run down the changes from Chapter Approved 2017. We also have two hobby segments in this episode.  The first one is about how to get over the hobby hump mid-project.  the second is about how to strip and spruce up old models.  We do some army list talk and Paul is joined by a Warzone: Atlanta Champion Collin Watts.

Hey all,

In the first segment we talk about the major changes for matched play in Chapter Approved 2017.  We are very happy to see progressive objectives officially blessed by GW prime and a part of the main missions.

We also talk about how to psych yourself up to finish hobby projects by jumping to another part of the job that may help break up that ‘monochrome’ look your figure may have while you’re laying on the base coats.

The middle part of the show has a newcomer to the show Collin Watts.  He’s a great tournament player and always a top finisher at the events he attends.  We talk about game plans and evolving strategies as the game progresses.


Please let us know how your army lists are shaping up.

Deathwing and Ravenwing, of course, get their own special flavor in this codex but there are new ways to field the ‘Greenwing’ too now that most of the space marine options are available to them.

The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Frontline Gaming. Their new mats are now hot off the presses and getting ready to be shipped. Please check them out, even if you already have a game mat. Their new styles are very impressive. If you haven’t already get your tickets NOW for the mega Las Vegas Open.

The second Finishing Moves segment is about how to strip and spruce up old figures.

FTN mostly focuses on Warhammer 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.
