Arcane Reservoir +56

By way of an interlude to my own hobby blogging, I was recently honoured to be invited as a guest onto the excellent Malifaux podcast Arcane Reservoir. So if you can’t get enough of the inadequately painted miniatures and excessively detailed battle reports on this blog, you can now spend some time with me in audio form too.

The show itself is a discussion of new releases for Neverborn from the Broken Promises book. It’s slightly ironic to be on a podcast talking of theory-faux since I partly write my battle reports to dispel the worst excesses of the theory game playing, but I did really enjoy myself.

    Congrats on being invited! I will have to give it a listen.

    • Thanks! I hope that the hobby is still being kind to you; it’s been a long time since we were posting together about Warhammer 8th edition.

      The podcast might be a bit obscure if you don’t already play Malifaux. Having said, you should play Malifaux because it is an excellent game with fun mechanics, nice models and good faction balance.

        Yeah, it has been a long time. You are a true hobby hero for staying steady this whole time. I haven’t been involved with miniatures much and have been playing board games instead (although many still have miniatures).

        I listened to the podcast, but could only vaguely follow, since I only have a basic concept of Malifaux from a podcast long, long ago.

        If I ever get back into miniature gaming, it will most likely be with the massive piles of Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game models that I have from long ago. The game is long abandoned by GW, but it is a nice little skirmish game and I already have the rules with a large amount of the models. My son is getting older, and I know that if I ever offered, he would jump on it immediately. Who knows what my future might hold…

        • Board games is a pretty good way to get your hobby on since they only take up a fairly specifically-determined amount of time.

          It’s funny you mention about gaming with your son. My kids (6 and 8 years old) and I picked up a ‘start collecting’ box each for GW’s Age of Sigmar game. When there is enough to write about I’ll probably stick some thoughts in a blog post. In the meantime, it’s been really enjoyable helping them assemble and start painting their stuff. We haven’t even played a game yet, but plan to do so when we have enough pieces put together.
