Tom, Chris, and special guest Matt “Chimp” Ward – not that Matt Ward – discuss a plethora of minis news, the community’s endeavors at the Brotherhood team Age of Sigmar event, and their own months in spilling things on various surfaces.

Plus: meditations on the son of Dhorgar, immediately out of date Tzeentch book hot takes, and how to start painting models and then immediately stop.

We’ve had another case of the meandering audio quality this episode, but hopefully it’s not too bad! Please bear with us while we adjust to Chris’ echoey new house.

Chris’ new Daemon Prince.
Chris’ Chaos Knight, an exercise in worrying less about subassemblies.
Chris’ Slaves to Darkness Sorcerer Lord.
Chris’ Mutalith Vortex Beast, the useless parade float of Chaos.
Chris’ converted Fatemaster.
Tom’s Stormcast line up across from Chris’ Arcanites at the start of this month’s battle. In the middle of the board, MOLOXOR THE BALE SPHERE awaits.
Tom brings down a chunky unit of Retributors near Chris’ elite forces, but they don’t make it into combat.
On Chris’ first turn, the Enlightened smash into Tantrus and get smashed in return. He’s a big dumb golden spaceman, but he knows how to smash a nerd.
Chris attempts to give the Retributors a wide berth while surging forward to grab Tom’s objective.
On the other flank, a horde of Tzaangor fight a unit of Sequitors and some Judicators. They will continue to fight each other for most of the rest of the game.
The Mutalith Vortex Beast, beloved by all, piles into the Retributors, eating one. They wouldn’t hurt such a good boy, would they?
Meanwhile, a melee develops as the Ogroid Thaumaturge engages Tantrus and a Knight-Incantor in mutually inconclusive combat. In the background, the Mutalith Vortex Beast is murdered with hammers.
The Tzaangor Shaman manages to free MOLOXOR THE BALE SPHERE by grabbing Tom’s backfield objective, but dies to Judicators for its trouble. The last surviving Skyfire assassinates Tom’s Knight-Incantor, but then… dies to Judicators, for its trouble.
On the other flank, the Ogroid Thaumaturge fails a short charge into Tom’s Knight-Incantor despite a reroll. This puts continued control over MOLOXOR THE BALE SPHERE out of Chris’ reach, as elsewhere Tantrus makes a play for Tzeentchian home territory.
MOLOXOR THE BALESPHERE returns to the centre of the board, turning a Kairic Acolyte to amethyst in the process. They get shot at by Judicators, and then they run away. At this point, there’s no way that Chris’ Arcanites can wrest control of the big purple orb from Tom’s Stormcast. Victory to Tom!
