Ah yes, Darren Latham- the GW staffer that berated me for painting Ragnar Blackmane's hair blonde, like in the studio mini at the time. ("He's not called blondemane is he?"). Is he still just as arrogant here or is this worth a listen?

Hi Grimtuff,
Darren here, I'm sorry I came across like that when I said that. I don't remember that conversation so it must have been quite a while ago. It seems funny to me as I've actually painted my Ragnar with blonde hair!
Anyway, I'm sorry again and I'm sure it was my youthful arrogance that spoke which I certainly don't carry anymore.
All the best! Darren.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

I enjoyed the podcast, not just saying it because the man who was interviewed has commented but a good precedent has been set from these initial two podcasts and I'm keen for the next one. There's some really nice tidbits of information in these.

A couple of things that I've really enjoyed hearing about in both episodes so far are how the hobby side(building, painting and gaming) effects the design process of the models. As well as how the different departments of the studio play off and influence each other.

Podcasts are great as a secondary activity. Listen to them whilst painting or playing a non-narrative game.

So someone at GW looks in here from time to time. I have now enjoyed both Voxcasts so far, but please get sound isolating microphone stands. Every hand on the table thumps into the audio. Don't stop the interviewees being enthusiastic and animated, just get better sound isolation.

As for the most recent episode it was another nice insight into the processes of design. Three things in particular caught my attention.

1. The renewal and modernising of older designs ***cough*** SoB ***cough*** with callbacks older returning players can recognise. (More Mark 6 please)

2. The 2nd hand painting tip of washes over white. I may try that on some bases first. If it goes horribly wrong I can always go muddier without wrecking the model itself.

3. I KNEW those Sternguard faces had to be Titus and Sidonus. It's probably been confirmed before elsewhere but it was the first I'd heard.

Another very nice episode. I enjoyed listening to it while painting - it is very interesting to get some insight into how the design process works and how the different teams interact.

Damn, I was slow off the mark with this one! Before listening I wanna hope talks about Dark Eldar.

Ooh, that will be tonight’s listening.

You know I might even give the AoS ones a listen, I don’t play it. But I’d imagine there might be some good little bits in there

Whether meant in jest at the time or perhaps youthful foolishness.
It’s nice to see an apology, and taking the time on Christmas Day no less!

Managed to sit down and listen to the cast and was disappointed about the lack of Dark Eldar, I expected some chat about them seeing as he was part of the redesign!

That being said however, I really liked his explanation on the fluff of Primaris and how not everyone just accepts them into the fold as battle brothers and how there are 3 waves of Primaris which makes me think that there'll be some sort of integration of the previous armour marks that Jes hinted at in his interview. He's also convinced me that Vigilus is a really cool campaign.

He mentioned that nothing will be pristine and in good condition forever so the Primaris pattern armour will eventually degrade or marines will choose to wear certain armour pieces that they've always worn. It basically gives a reason to put Corvus helmets onto Primaris without complaints.

Episode 4 was released yesterday for those interested, haven't given it a listen yet but judging by the previous ones I'm sure it's decent!

I've watched all of the voxcasts so far and I've been struck by how enthusiastic and thoughtful the interviewees have all been. Jes is always going to be worth listening to but the others were also very interesting and I like the host as well, Wade Price. To me it shows how wrong-headed the previous attitude of hiding creative staff from the public was. I hope we get a Blanche one soon but it would also be great to hear from Brian Nelson and some of the other older school sculptors.

I'm getting into the habit of watching/listening to these while working on models.

It's better than watching paint dry.

They've also enabled comments on the Youtube videos. Aaaaand they've disabled them. That was quick.

That was a really enjoyable one to listen to. I liked the thought process behind how they write the rules.

Interesting to see how they rewrote the GSC too. (Their agents of Vect should be fixed to 4 CP though)

I like the confirmation of what a lot of people assumed: The codexes became more interesting as time went on and as they explored more avenues for the rules.

Now the question is: ok, so now that you know that you can do better, when are we going to get new Space Marine and Chaos Marine Codexes that have new flavorful rules?
