Episode 8 – The Plastics (Year 2)

Welcome to Episode 8 of Year 2.

First off an apology, Michael had a terrible cough and despite him muting his microphone, he forgot he left a second microphone plugged in, so his coughs were still picked up. We did our best to remove the coughs and managed to get rid of the worst, but there are still a number of instances where you can hear his cough.

Tonight we will be looking at the following:-

  • A quick look at this months new releases
  • An update of what we have been up to this month.
  • A run through of this months news, including that from the Forge World and Specialist Open Day
  • We look at this month’s Black Library releases, and have a review of Slaves to Darkness.
  • Chris takes us through the FAQ for the Legio Custodes and we mop up his tears!
  • We take a look at doing an all plastic Heresy army, using the existing kits manufactured by Games Workshop
  • Following on from our look at plastics we see which of us can put together the best plastic based list.
  • And finally we will look at what events are coming up across the UK.
