Hey there,

After a bit of a break we are back…well, I am! It’s been such a busy time recently with so much going on, in and out of the hobby. However I didn’t want to let any Tournaments go by without coverage. So with that in mind, I got on the mic and recorded a bit of an update of the last 5 weeks by myself.

Not overly keen on solo episodes, so please see this as a one off and I’ll be back with some friends to have some fun again soon!!

If you are interested in a Lay Low The Tyrants t-shirt, get in touch as I will look to do a second print run.

Hey there,

So this episode is a day late as I’ve been super super busy (more on that next episode!), but here is our coverage of Rain of Stars – my one day charity tournament. Thanks so much to everyone who donated in anyway – the event raised a phenomenal £1,091.46 with Adam Elford’s army raffle hitting £920 – so over £2,000 in total. Utterly stunning, really impressive stuff.

Welcome back to another instalment of TBS! This time round, me and the newly renamed Cowboy Boots Matt Lyons are joined by hobby supremo Russ Veal for a bit of a chat on painting – more specifically preparing an army for an event.

Please note that as a Skype show (something I try to avoid) there are some sound issues, so apologies for this. Hopefully the content makes up for this.

Let me know what you think as I would like to do more painting chat like this if it goes down well. Just trying a few different things at the moment.

Hello boys and girls, we are back!

After a bit of hiatus (for hobby reasons!) we have returned with a monster episode over FOUR hours long. Hopefully this will make up for our absence.

Unfortunately Ricky had a bit of a cold during the recording and is pretty sniffly throughout. I tried to edit where possible but it’s still noticeable at times.

The episode is a big catch up including full Tournament reviews of New Dawn and the South Coast Grand Tournament.

Also, you will hear how I try to hold off buying Orruks, a day after the recording I caved in and ordered all the new stuff! #willpower

Hey there boys and girls,

Just me and Dom this time as Ricky had to take care of his daughter.
Quite a sedate episode as we go over the newly released SCGT pack giving some initial thoughts.

My personal highlight of the episode is a special message from Russ “The Face” Veal, so listen out for that.

New Dawn tickets are available into 07/02/16 so there is still time to join us there. We announce a fantastic offer from Scenery Dice and fail to mention a great offer where by if you enter New Dawn you can get a FREE ticket to the SELWG Smash event! see details below.

Teal dice have unfortunately sold out, but there are some black & gold still available. Get them whilst you can!

I’ve also started a new thing on Twitter where I create a poll, so you the listener can pick one of the music breaks – this was won today by the amazing Taylor Swift!! Look out for this feature in future!

Hey there boys and girls,

Welcome back to another episode as I am once again joined by Dom and Ricky to chat some more Warhammer!

We failed in our attempts to keep to the proposed shorter and sensible format, as the show creeps over 2 hours and has some..ur..interesting(?) chat about a minute in. But stick with it as we get into the good stuff quick enough.

This episode covers Fyreslayers, coverage of games we’ve played, SDK comp and hobby plans – Lets see if Ricky can make 2016 the year he delivers and actually does some hobby!

I was feeling slightly under the weather so my throat and voice were a little dodgy – apologies, but I was keen to get an episode out between New Year and the SCGT comp pack coming out as discussed.

Hey boys and girls,

I am pleased to announce two lovely new TBS dice designs to celebrate the impending return of the show. Both Black & Gold and Teal & Gold are now available for pre order! To get your hands on them, carefully follow the instructions below. To qualify the term “pre order”, these dice have already been paid for and ordered by myself, I am expecting to receive delivery of them in around 5-6 weeks (please note I have no control over this and there could feasibly be delays). Once I have taken delivery of them I will post out.

So lets get down to business. My Paypal address is lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com and you need to be sending as a gift or friends and family – this is important! Be sure to include your address and what colour dice you want in the notes.

Dice cost £8 for 10 dice in either the Black & Gold or Teal & Gold (ie 10 of one colour, there is no mixing 5 of each, if you want a mix buy 2 sets!).

Postage in the UK is £2 for up to 20 dice, for every 10 dice over that please add 50p. Example (UK);
10 Dice = £10 (£8 for dice + £2 for P&P)
20 Dice = £18 (£16 for dice + £2 for P&P)
30 Dice = £26.50 (£24 for dice + £2.50 for P&P)

Postage overseas is £4 for up to 20 dice, for every 10 dice over that please add 50p. Example (overseas);
10 Dice = £12 (£8 for dice + £4 for P&P)
20 Dice = £20 (£16 for dice + £4 for P&P)
30 Dice = £28.50 (£24 for dice + £4.50 for P&P)

Hopefully this makes sense to everyone, if you are unsure, hit me up by e-mail (same address) or on Twitter @the_black_sun and I can clarify for you.

Please just remember to pay as friends and family, add your address to notes and confirm which colour set(s) you want!

I am unsure whether I will do these colours again or whether the next set(s) will be a different colour.

Many thanks for supporting the show, there is a brand new episode coming out before Christmas, so look forward to plenty of TBS back in your life going into 2016.

Also check out TWF later tonight for information on my upcoming Age of Sigmar tournament; New Dawn.

Once again, thank you all and much love,

Chris x

Wow…another monumental episode here. Get ready for the final Warhammer Fantasy Battle episode of The Black Sun.

With the Age of Sigmar dawning it’s time to give one last Tournament (Hobby Event?) report. And what better than the Hobby Mingvitationals. I am joined by Scott and Matt as well as special guest host Ming Lee as we cover his superb event. Unfortunately a couple of great stories were forgotten, such as the Piñata, but this is always the way!

This show was also recorded after the Age of Sigmar boxset and rules had been leaked, but before the War Scrolls. There is some #AoS chat, but it may be already irrelevant knowing what we do now.

Listen in after the outro for some more “live” content from #HMV15 including the speed painting!

Hey guys,

Now that #hmv15 is over, we are back to regular episodes as we count down to the end of 8th edition. I am predicting that the show after this one will be the final 8th edition related show. Crazy!

I said regular episodes, however this one is a little special as I am not joined by any regular co-host, instead Jon Warmington and Richard Ciereszko come on to give a TO’s report on their recent hobby event (Because I do love to cover these!!), Whoops – The End Times. Thanks a lot to both Jon and Rich, it was a fun time and hopefully you’ll all enjoy the show. You can find out more about the event including the rulespack, fluff etc over on TWF – http://warhammer.org.uk/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=126705

I also just wanted to give out a little reminder one final time that there is a PayPal donation button on the top right of the website at http://theblacksun.co.uk – I have had to upgrade the Podcast account due to exceeding upload limits thanks to all the shows that are being pumped out currently.

If you enjoy the show and are able to donate any amount to assist with my running costs, it would be greatly appreciated. Massive thanks to those of you who have so far.

Ok, so this really is it; End of Times, Bro!

With all the Mingterviews finished, myself and Ming get together one last time just to reflect on the series and discuss the impending event!

I really hope you have all enjoyed this series as much as I have enjoyed making it. It’s been a labour of love at times, but totally worth it.

Please make sure you are on Twitter this coming weekend (13-14th June), following myself @the_black_sun and Ming @Thornshield for plenty of coverage featuring all the fantastic armies we have discussed throughout this series. Just search for the hashtag #HMV15

Episode LXXXIV of the main TBS show will be a review of this event and hopefully Ming will join myself, Scott and Matt for that.

Well this is almost it boys and girls (I know at least one will be listening; hi Liz!), this is the final Mingterview and myself and Mr Lee are joined by Adam Bassett. I say “almost it” as there will be one final show ahead of the event itself for me and Ming to look back and reflect on the series, before crying a little bit.

However before that emotional finale, we have one of the most fun Mingterviews for you to enjoy! A vodka fuelled Adam tells us all about his Host of the Phoenix King (is that even a thing?), which has to be the most flat out weird and wonderful we’ve discussed throughout the series!
Adam, who works around the corner from Firestorm Games, also gives one of the greatest Element Games shout outs to date!
You can follow Adam on Twitter @DiscoQing

I really appreciate all feedback in regards to these shows specifically. Make sure you come back for the final *sob* #HMV15 show in a couple of days time.

Once again I am joined by a regular co-host alongside Ming as Scott The Boss Lines drops in to tell you all about his rubbish Beas…I mean Legions of Chaos list! if you also listen to the main show, this follows on directly after we recorded Episode LXXXII. It’s the first Mingterview where I am a bit drunk and Scott was also in a silly mood. It’s quite a long episode, but even so a LOT was cut haha! Hopefully you’ll still enjoy it, even if it does feel more regular TBS than #HMV15. Normal service will resume next Mingterview as we begin our count down with the final 5 episodes!! Noooo!!

Hey guys,

Nice short little show for you here. Its a bit of a battle report this time, as The Chaos Legions of myself and The Boss clash in an epic 2,600 point game. The game features no less than 4 (Scott would argue 5) Special Characters and was a blast.

Hey guys,

So here we are with our annual coverage of the massive South Coast Grand Tournament. The good news is there is a full house as I’m joined by Scott, Dom and Diesel.

The bad news is unfortunately that there were some massive issues with the audio here. It was distorted during recording, which I think I’ve now pinpointed to a dodgy USB socket. Annoyingly the outtake after outro is fine, which was recorded before the main show, so something must of gone awry after that. It’s such a shame as the content is pretty good and old skool TBS I think.

Anyway, I hope you guys can still make your way through the show.

Enjoy!

Hey guys,

So whilst the Mingterviews are coming out thick and fast, it’s important we don’t neglect the main show. With that in mind, it’s time to find out how our long running escalation campaign, The Slaughtering Grounds, wound up during its epic conclusion. The intro and outro to this episode are a bit of a monologue from myself, but the meat of the episode features all the campaign bros as its was recorded “live” on the day. If you’re into your fluff readings, stay on after the outro track, though as heads up it’s not Scott style fantasy filth I’m afraid!

Please please please make sure you check out the now finished blog at http://theblacksunpodcast.tumblr.com/ – so much work has gone into this and I’d love for everyone to take a look. It’s finished up with 52 photos from the final gaming day, which are pretty cool. Also the final posts from each participant are a great read; see how they wrapped up their fluff, final campaign thoughts and they are all of course accompanied by some nice photos of the armies.

Enjoy!

TBS Presents: #HMV15

This series will focus around Ming Lee’s upcoming event hobby spectacular – The Hobby Ming-vitionals.
Across these mini episodes I will be interviewing the participants of this event to talk about their hobby plans and lists.
Every single gamer featured will be an expert in one or more field of our hobby (painting, conversion, theme, etc),
so the interviews promise to be exciting stuff.

For the first episode I am joined by Ming, who is no hobby slouch himself!
Ming will also be joining me on future episodes as we chat to some of his entrants.

I really hope you all enjoy this. If not, don’t despair, regular TBS episodes will be released amidst the #HMV15 mayhem!!

Hey there,

I *think* the sound is better for this show. I have a few things to test before recording the next 2 episodes this coming week. I did accidently export this as a .wav file and subsequently have to recode it as an .mp3 but I don’t think that has affected the sound quality.

Anyway, this time I am joined by Dom & Diesel as we discuss their time at the BIG House Championships. A full End Times filth event that took place on the same weekend me, Scott & Matt were fluffing it up at the Painting Masters.

Hey there,

First up, I gotta apologise for the sound quality of this Episode. I think I had a mixer issue in the week I recorded this, Episode 76 (though I haven’t started the edit yet) and some of the Mierce stuff. I think I’ve identified the issue and it will be resolved for Episode 77. Sorry about this, I really hope it doesn’t ruin your enjoyment. I do hate it when the sound quality isn’t what I want it to be.

For this Episode I am joined by Scott and Matt as we recount our time at the Painting Masters. I thought this would be a nice short and sensible show. Boy I was wrong! Turned out completely different to how I expected, but I was laughing a lot during the edit, which is usually a good sign.

I won’t bother list the highlights; there are plenty of them I think. Hopefully you guys enjoy it.

Hey there,

Bit of a special episode here as I catch up with Mierce Miniatures very own Tim Fisher. I’m really happy with this episode and hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording it.

Tim gives us some background of himself as a hobbyist and we have a brief chat about the Painting Masters which we both attended a few days after recording this.

We then cover the current crop of WFB 9th edition rumours, before introducing Mierce as a company.

Finally we get into the main talking point; the upcoming BaneBeasts Kickstarter from Mierce. Myself and Tim will be putting up a number of mini shows over the duration of the Kickstarter to keep you up to date, starting with one on 19/01/15 when the Kickstarter is expected to go live.

Finally we wrap up with some Twitter questions for Tim.

Please note that the TBS #endoftimesbro T-Shirts are no longer available to order I’m afraid.

Here’s links to some of the things mentioned;

So here we have it…the long awaited return of Big Dogger Diese!!

As well as the big man, myself and Dommy Four Fingers are joined by a second special guest in the form of Chippy Rick for a super (read: too) long Tournament report episode! Stay tuned for the following and lots lots more;

** Blood and Glory report (featuring some classic Ben Diesel battle reports!)
** An update on Diesel’s neverending army project; The Vampire Counts Empire (VCE)
** Laddish behaviour – Please note that this was tongue in cheek!
** Some of the poorest evening shenanigans stories ever; embarrassing!!
** Really bad sound on this one I’m afraid guys. As you’d expect from the Return of Diesel, there are background noises aplenty, including lots of eating! Most of it got left it, partially for the lolz! Ricky had a bad cough which again was tricky to fully edit out and obviously had to keep the energy up by eating crisps! Finally, due to number of people, I was on the squeaky chair! Sorry people. However, this will be significantly better than the next show (recorded in a pub)!

Hey there boys and girls,

The Undead Legions #notaraffle has now all wrapped up with the winners…um recipients, being announced on Twitter this past Sunday.

Before that, I just need to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who donated. I raised a staggering £912!!

This is way beyond my wildest dreams and pretty much pays for the entire Waaagh! Paca trip. Fantastic stuff.

The draw was done on a Skype Videocall with Joe Hadfield (@TheJoeHadfield) rolling the dice and Neil Peckett (@TrimControls) checking the Spreadsheet. Neither donated so were completely impartial. Thanks to the both of them for assisting.

Due to the enormous total raised as well as the main prize, I was also able to give away 3 of the upcoming TBS T-shirts (these will be going on general preorder later tonight). The lucky people were…

Tom Hall (@Ironblaster1)
Jack Chapman (@Gelmarus)
Greg Farrell (@gjf123)

On to the big prize, and perhaps controversially it was won by….

David Witek (@Garagehammer)

Hahaha! Fantastic stuff. If you don’t know David, please be sure to check out his brilliant Podcast www.garagehammer.com – funnily enough this was announced mere minutes before I got on a Skype call to record on David’s show. His reaction was brilliant, as a big VC player already he was clearly thrilled.

Anyway, that’s about everything I think!
Wow, what a ride. Thanks again, much love,

Chris
@the_black_sun

 

Where oh where to start…this has been mental, completely mental!!

There are now less than 24 hours remaining and we are up to the simply bananas total of £849!! Please check out the posts just a little bit below to see the initial army. On top of this, the following will now be included;

**Army Books and Magic Cards for Vampire Counts and Tomb Kings
**Sartosan Vampire
**VC themed converted Casket of Souls
**90 Zombies
**Mannfred von Carstein, Mortarch of Night

All of the models above will be painted by myself to match the rest of the army. I will probably send the initial army to the recipient and then follow it up with these once they are finished. Its quite an undertaking.

I have no further models to add as “stretch goals”, but as you’ll soon see I am going to be putting up pre orders for the first TBS T-shirts. So what I’m gonna do is for every multiple of £25 that is donated (started for £850, so only £1 more required) I will pick another person who will receive a T-shirt.

For example…

£850 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt
£875 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt
£900 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt
£925 – A person (other than the recipient of the army) gets a new TBS T-shirt

…and so on (as if haha!!). If the same name is drawn, it will be redrawn so there are different recipients for each item. Hopefully that makes sense.

The drawing of recipients will take place on Saturday morning via a Skype video call. Follow my Twitter @the_black_sun for details as they unfold. It promises to be super exciting!

Please scroll down for photos and full details, but here is a snap shot of what you have to do to get involved;

To the right of this post is a Paypal donate button. I would kindly ask that if you get any small measure of enjoyment from what me and my boys produce, you click the button and donate any amount, small or large, in multiples of £1 (please note).

Aside from this, please do not write any comment whatsoever in your donation (other than your name if you use someone else’s account). I cannot stress this point enough. You can also send Paypal as gift to lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com (THIS OPTION IS PREFERRED PLEASE) – the same applies though; Do not put a message (other than name if need be).

**EDIT – a Twitter handle in the note is also acceptable**

So for every multiple of £1 you donate I will give you give a like for like number of chances to be the recipient of the Vampire Counts / Undead Legions army below (or potentially a T-shirt)

This is not a raffle and you are not buying tickets. This is bro’s helping out bro’s.

It’s worth reading all these posts fully before donating. Please be clear its a donation and please please do not use a note with your payment!!!

You have until 10pm GMT Friday 12th December 2014 for your donation to be included in this.

I think I’ve covered everything? Please e-mail any questions to lunatic_Pandora@btinternet.com

Much love,
Chris x

Hey guys,

So we are just over a week into the fund raising extravaganza and I just want to say a massive massive thank you to everyone who has donated thus far. This has now exceeded my expectations and the actual process has just been highly enjoyable.

Firstly, if you can’t be bothered to scroll down, check the original post here – you will find full details of how to get involved there.

Here is where we are at with the “stretch goals” currently…

£400 – The fully painted Vampire Counts army will be given away (see pics below or via link above)
£450 – Vampire Counts army book and ltd ed magic cards added!
£500 – Tomb Kings army book and ltd ed magic cards added!
£550 – Sartosan Vampire model added – I will personally paint this to fit in with the army. Most people prefer to field the Vampire over the Ghoul King so I’m sure the recipient will be pleased. Lovely model as well.
£600 – Converted VC themed Casket of Souls added – I will personally paint this to fit in with the army. This just became an Undead Legions army!!

Currently we are sat at the huge figure of **£628**. This is amazing. It also means I need some more “stretch goals”. So lets see (I don’t for one second think all of these will be reached by the way!!);

£650 – 30 Mantic Zombies will be added, painted by me to match the army.
£700 – 30 Mantic Zombies will be added, painted by me to match the army (so 60 total!).
£750 – 30 Mantic Zombies will be added, painted by me to match the army (so 90 total!!).
£800 – Mannfred von Carstein, Mortarch of Night will be added, painted by me to match the army!!!

So there we go! As I said, this has already gotten bigger than I’d hoped, but please don’t stop now!! Someone is going to be made very happy in return.

*Please note that I cannot promise a timeframe for when the additional models will be painted. I’m happy to send the army first and the other bits when complete though*

Here is a couple of pics of the models added so far;


Once again, thanks so much, and please read the previous post carefully before donating,

Hello and welcome to another episode of The Black Sun Weekly…or at least that’s what it feels like at the moment; Record. Edit. Repeat 🙁

I do realise I missed a trick here. Episode 69 should clearly have been a “special” show with Matt!!

Please do check out the post below this about my VC army and if you can afford to spare a few quid, that’d be greatly appreciated. There’s a great army which is 100% going to be given away to one of you kind souls!!

So in this episode we discuss;

** How Dom literally saved my life before we recorded!
** Our lists and fears for Blood & Glory next week
** The filthiest game of Triumph and Treachery ever!
** A great Friday night in Metro’s
** The fantastic tournament; Tribute
** The impromptu announcement of our Christmas Special, to feature a one off Ask Ben Diesel segment (the original and best WFB Podcast Q&A segment – snack a dick, Dicks!)

Hey there guys and girls,

Hope everyone is well. Just about to start editing Episode 69 (oh yeh!) but wanted to post this exciting news first.

For years, Podcasters have kindly asked for donations from their listeners. These donations can be for a multitude of things; gear, hosting, travel (often to overseas events), tickets, models, beer, you get the idea. Whilst such schemes always get their detractors, I think (as an avid Podcast listener myself) many fans are happy to give a little back in lieu of the time put into free content!

So I’m off to America again in January, to the simply fantastic Waaagh! Paca event, and I cant wait.

To the right of this post is a Paypal donate button. I would kindly ask that if you get any small measure of enjoyment from what me and my boys produce, you click the button and donate any amount, small or large, in multiples of £1 (please note). Your donations will be used towards my flight, my drink and potentially a new army.

Aside from this, please do not write any comment whatsoever in your donation (other than your name if you use someone else’s account). I cannot stress this point enough. You can also send Paypal as gift to lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com (THIS OPTION IS PREFERRED PLEASE) – the same applies though; Do not put a message (other than name if need be).

**EDIT – a Twitter handle in the note is also acceptable**

However, it does not end there.

If you are kind enough to donate to basically allow me to have fun, I feel like I should give something back (Yes, other than all that mega mega TBS goodness!).

So for every multiple of £1 you donate I will give you give a like for like number of chances to be the recipient of the Vampire Counts / Undead Legions army below.

This is not a raffle and you are not buying tickets. This is bro’s helping out bro’s.

The army was painted to a good tabletop standard by commission painter Chloe Clegg (she’s very good, you can find her on Facebook as CLC Painting). Its Strigoi themed and has a number of features that make it “pop” on the tabletop; namely the blood effects and the glowing eyes. Here is what’s in the initial army;

Ghoul King – Plastic model from Terrorgheist box, painted to an even stronger standard.

Necromancer – Plastic model

Banshee – Out of production metal model

2x 30 Ghouls – Fantastic out of production metal models with magnetized movement trays.

8 Crypt Horrors – Plastic models with magnetized movement tray (this will be painted!).

2x 2 Fell Bats – Metal models with magnetized movement tray.

3x 1 Spirit Hosts – Plastic Mantic models with magnetized individual movement trays.

Varghulf – Metal model

2x Terrorgheist – Plastic models, one kitbashed with the Zombie Dragon part for variety.

There is approximately £300 of models (hard to be exact with the OOP stuff) here alone.

Here are some photos, apologies for the poor image quality;







On top of the basic army I have plenty of other bits including army books, magic cards and additional models. The more that is donated the more I will decide to give away in return. Needless to say I will also post this to you wherever in the world you live!

The first goal we are aiming for is £400, once that is reached I’ll let you know and start giving info on how much more we’ll need before you can add for example, 90 Zombies to the army (Please note that if a minimum of £400 is not raised I will return all donations).

To decide who I give away the army to I will put everyone’s names onto a spreadsheet and get on a Skype video call with a couple of random impartials and roll some dice! This will all happen on the evening of Friday 12th December, obviously you can continue to donate after this date if you so desire!

Please remember not to include a note with your donations and of course it goes without saying, massive thanks in advance to all the kind souls donating 😉

If anyone is genuinely confused by all this, please e-mail me at lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com and I can explain further.

Much love,
Chris x

Scott gives us a rundown of how he got on at Clash of Swords and also some handy tips on attracting middle aged women, if that’s your thing! There’s some fantastic Diesel chat, which prompted what has to be the best TBS cover EVER!

Hey there guys,

So BLACKOUT has been and gone; it was a great time for me as TO and it seemed like all the entrants enjoyed themselves as well.

There was some left over merch so I thought I’d out together a little package and have some fun. Basically what we’ve got here is a raffle of sorts. Up for grab there is;

BLACKOUT pint glass (these are super limited and were given out to entrants. This is the only spare!)
BLACKOUT reroll die (again, these are highly limited, only 50 were made!! Note this is a single die in Black & Gold)
– 10 BLACKOUT dice. In sexy Orange and Black.
– All 3 BLACKOUT bottle opener keyrings
BLACKOUT poster (you’ll probably get a few!)
– BONUS (not pictured) if you are over 18 I’ll throw in some Dragon Soop!!!

Hey there,

Welcome to our review of Month 7 of our Slaughtering Grounds campaign. Be sure you head on over to theblacksunpodcast.tumblr.com to check out the photos of the cool models we discuss.

We also have a bit of a chat about the fantastic new Nagash stuff; The End Times are here geeks, get over it and embrace it!! Unfortunately I was feeling a bit rough, I tried to cut all the coughs but some slipped through. There’s an interesting chat about motivation as well.

The highlight of the show is when Ben Diesel calls in! Gives you an insight into the day to day conversations we have with the Big Dogger!

Finally, we get onto the grand finale of our contest! The last 20 mins of this podcast do get a bit extreme in places, so please consider your environment when listening!!
Enjoy the show!

The wait is over. It’s finally here!!

Welcome one and all to our long awaited coverage of the absolutely fantastic Waaagh! Paca tournament from back in January. There have been many delays to this, but I hope it will be everything you were hoping for…hhhmmm, I doubt it!

I am joined by two of my companions from the trip to America; Ben Diesel and Ricky Mee.

As to be expected, it’s a long time before any WFB talk. Overall I tried to cut a LOT of our non essential chat, but I was fighting a losing battle there. Unfortunately, Diesel has my old squeaky chair and insists on spinning on it. Great!

So sit back, crack open a can of Dragon Soop and hear about our time in Chicago; Chris gets drunks alone, Diesel and Ricky go to a “gentlemen’s” club. Then onto the Friday in Waupaca, where American gamers make the mistake to trying to outdrink a pistol toting Ben Diesel!

We do then, of course, cover the Tournament itself!! I really really hope you enjoy the show and that it was worth the wait.

Also, Dice still available. Black & Pink as pictured below (the pips are actually more of pastel baby pink colour rather than the white the look in the pic below). The easiest way to purchase is to click on the donate button on the www.theblacksun.co.uk homepage and donate the right amount. Just be sure to include your postal address in the payment. Costs are as follows;

As mentioned on the show, black & pink dice are still available as per below. Also there is a very limited supply of the original pink & white dice availabe via pre-order. Email me at lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com for info.

Welcome back to another fun packed episode of The Black Sun bitches!

Regular hosts Chris, Scott and Dom are joined by fan favourite Weird Porn Matt to discuss the House Championships that recently took place at The Giant’s Lair in Plymouth.

We also cover the new White Dwarf Weekly & Warhammer Visions magazines. There’s also a very interesting (I think!) chat about proxy models//armies at tournaments.

On top of all this, we get a stunning revelation about Orc nipples, find out that Matt likes to tell lies and that Scott is now a “First Blood” Wrestling Champion!!

Also, dice are still available. The new colour design is in stock and ready to buy (the pips are actually more of  pastel baby pink colour rather than the white the look in the pic below). The easiest way to purchase is to click on the donate button on the www.theblacksun.co.uk homepage and donate the right amount. Just be sure to include your postal address in the payment. Costs are as follows;

Hello and welcome to EPISODE 50 of The Black Sun!!

This episode was recorded “live” at this years Downfall event. I used a new portable recorder – I think a pop filter and a better understanding of the settings would of helped sound quality; but hopefully it has that Old Skool feel that long time listeners may have enjoyed in the past.

This is a sort’ve homage to our early days, with lots of short, fun segments, plenty of music and a general party feel. Obviously theres plenty of Warhammer chat as well.

I don’t think anyone will know or appreciate how long this took me to edit and put out, so much stuff had to be cut…considering some of the stuff that made it in, this may surprise you!

Luckily I managed to get the recorder back out the week after at Dom’s birthday extravaganza, giving us a bit more content. Most of what we recorded then wasn’t suitable for listening though haha!!

Also, plenty of dice still available. The new colour design is in stock and ready to buy (the pips are actually more of  pastel baby pink colour rather than the white the look in the pic below). The easiest way to purchase is to click on the donate button on the www.theblacksun.co.uk homepage and donate the right amount. Just be sure to include your postal address in the payment. Costs are as follows;

£8 per set of 10 dice – postage costs only need to be paid once for up to 3 sets of dice. UK – £2 // International – £4.50

I only get each colour of dice made once, so when these are gone, that’s it!

So I hope you enjoy the show, with some old friends and a super special celebrity introduction. Many thanks to anyone that has listened over the years and heres to the next 50 shows!

We talk fluffhammer with Ben Diesel (ha!) and discover my dark secret about bongo drums before getting on to the main subject; Tribute. This was a fantastic tournament run by Team Andy Joyce, so find out how we all got on…I’ll say no more!!

We finish up with some random chit chat about Dark Elves and a special announcement from The Boss.

Hello boys & girls,

A second show so quickly after the last; you lucky lucky people. This episode myself and The Boss are joined by Crispy//Chippy Rick (Ricky Mee).

The three of us all met up on a Monday and played a few games, some of which featured the new Dark Elf book. So we thought we’d record a little show and just have a bit of chit-chat!!

Welcome back boys & girls,

Slight delay in this episode thanks to a pretty nasty ankle injury I sustained in the most manly of fashions (and definitely not playing Badminton!!!).

Once again it’s a stupidly long episode, we really are going to try to curb this, but with two Tournaments to report on its pretty tough.

We have Ben Diesel back on air, so prepare for plenty of heavy breathing, burping, farting, sneezing & coughing!! Find out what everyone has been up to in the hobby as we have a little “show & tell (or should that be “show & break”?!) during the recording. My Mantic Elves are since much improved from the descriptions during this episode and no where near as offensive…maybe. Scott’s Kislev is coming on nicely and even Diesel has been hobbying.

The first tournament reviewed is the Portsmouth Pillage with its controversial (lack of) points docking. Scott tells us of his love for Jim Henderson before we get into a chat on how the tournament went.

Next up was the fantastic Clash of Swords, run by Mo Ashraf, where much fun was had by all. The Black Sun’s old adversary, Stephen Hawking (Stuart Hawkins), is back and faces off against no less than 3 of us in the one event!! Who will come out on top?! Also we find out about the 2 hours Scott spent in the company of All The Porn Andy Russell – Not to be missed!

Hello and welcome to a slightly different episode of The Black Sun,

Just myself and Scott today as we discuss our new projects; with both of us working on armies from the range of unofficial Warhammer Armies books, written by M4cR1II3n.

Scott tells us how he plans to make a dual purpose Kislev//Empire army and shares some excellent tips on snow basing – Mark Wildman take note!

Meanwhile, I begin my Nippon army. There’s a bit of a battle report here, though Scott seems to lose enthusiasm towards the end!

I know this subject is something not all our listeners will even vaguely care about, but its something we are passionate about and wanted to share. We’d love your feedback.

Blame Scott for the music!!

Welcome to our first episode in 2 months!

We’ve had a bit of a break, but are back with a bumper long (or standard length for us nowadays?) show with plenty to talk about. Unfortunately something went wrong whilst recording and from the second segment onwards, it sounds like we are recording over Skype, at the bottom of the ocean. I have no idea what went wrong, it’s thoroughly demoralising and I almost binned the episode, but thought you lovely peopled deserved something after such a gap between shows.

Hopefully you can get some enjoyment from the show regardless and suffice to say, it won’t happen again!

This episode we are covering not one, not two, but THREE tournaments; The “6” Nations, The Midlands Open and The Weymouth Waaagh!

Byron from Element Games also calls in to chat to us about there most recent news. Dom gives us an update on his Girlfriend (had you heard? Dom Hook has a girlfriend!!). Myself and Scott talking about Roleplaying and introduce our Pathfinder characters!

Don’t forget that you can help the show by donating over on www.theblacksun.co.uk – just follow the Paypal link. I’m also including a link to the unofficial WFB army books we mentioned, check ’em out! I am in talks this week for some brand new dice, so look out for them!

I have nothing further to add for now, other than how much I love #scotchjan

Hey,

Sorry about the overdue release of this show. I’m not gonna say a lot, just that this is definitely the most edited episode EVER; Once you hear what made the show you’ll be wondering what got cut!!

We mostly talk about our time at The Giants Lair ETC Team Event with the usual string of tangents. Tournament regulars and ETC Team Bulgaria Superstars Yavor Bidzhov & Hristo Nikolov also drop in for a quick chat, as well as TV presenter and magician Stephen Mulhern.

Oh and don’t forget to send in suggestions of WFB Tournament players to Footballers!!

Cheers,
Chris – @the_black_sun

Shalom brothers!

Finally I am very pleased to announce our episode covering the fantastic South Coast GT this year. As per usual its a 3 hour marathon combining tales of drunken stupidity and Warhammer alike.

I had a brilliant time at this event, foreshadowed by me actually getting the Twitter hashtag #SCGT2013 Tattooed on my leg!!! I really hope you get even just a fraction of that enjoyment whilst listening to our report of it.

We don’t actually get into any real WFB talk until after the second music break, but if you’re a fan of ours, that’s probably not gonna phase you; theres plenty to keep you entertained along the way.

I guess I need to renounce my claim that Steve Wren is the worst WFB player in the country. But I won’t give any more spoilers here, just listen to the show and have fun!

If you want to help us out, I have added a Paypal Donation button to the website; any contribution is great appreciated.

Don’t forget that Element Games will be announcing a voucher winner or two on Twitter 18/05/2013 – for your chance to win you need to place an order over at www.elementgames.co.uk and mention The Black Sun in your order notes. If you can send them a dodgy MS Paint fantasy cock beast, your chances will surely be improved!! @ElementGames_

Also, be sure to head on over to TWF to find out about the upcoming Team Tournament at the Giant’s Lair – it promises to be a fantastic event.

Anything you can spare will go a long way to helping out with things like hosting//website costs and an upcoming domain renewal. Also if we can get enough in, I can increase the monthly upload allowance in order to get some of the older shows back on the website, which would be pretty exciting. I intend to get some new dice made up later this year, so additional funds will go towards that also.

Hello and welcome to a special episode of The Black Sun,

I am joined by SCGT Organiser, ETC England Player and fellow Nu Metal & Warriors of Chaos fan; Russ Veal.

We take a second look over the Warriors of Chaos book with an expect opinion this time around. This show is a bit of a departure from our usual style, but hopefully you enjoy the change of pace (I eagerly welcome all feedback on this show).

Luckily, the Twitter question segment brings the tone back down to standard TBS fare!!

Unfortunately, due to this being recorded via Skype, the sound quality is not what we are used to. Hopefully the excellent content from Russ will make up for this.

If you are able to help towards hosting costs, please contact me via lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com – anything will be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome back to another episode of The Black Sun,

This time round we are back with a Tournament report; The fantastic SCGT Warm-up at The Giant’s Lair in Plymouth. We also get a lengthy old skool TBS drunk tale, as well as another fluff reading from The Boss (keep your WFB erotica coming in, he loves it!).

I will be moving the hosting of the site soon, hopefully you guys won’t encounter any issues as a result of this. We are looking for donations and maybe additional sponsorship to help us out – you can contact me direct at lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com – many thanks in advance.

Look out for Episode 40 which will be something really different for TBS as we have a good chat with Russ Veal.

As any fans of this series will have realised, we have been well behind in posting up photos from the latter stages of the project. It is for now wrapped up with the release of Episode 8 (which will be later on tonight). So without further ado I thought I’d just share a load of photos of everything else I haven’t posted before. Unfortunately I won’t be breaking them down month by month or telling you who failed what month – listen to the show for that. Just enjoy some pretty photos.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome back boys & girls,

This episode sees the start of a new competition – “The Boss’s Fluff Contest”. Up for grabs are some vouchers for the fantastic and generous Element Games. Listen to find out how you can take part, get your entries in to scott.lines@hotmail.co.uk

Scott did have a bit of a sharp cough in this show, I have tried to edit them all out but a couple may have found their way in.

We have a discussion about the new SCGT pack (which you can find here – http://heelanassociates.co.uk/downloads/SCGT2013HouseRules.pdf ) This seems to have got me (Chris) excited about Warhammer again!! So Dieselmania officially starts here – expect a whole show on the pack soon.

The main topic of the episode is a review of The Giant’s Lair House Championship which was attended by Scott and Diesel.

You also get the first installment of Ginger Filth, where Dom writes Dark Elf lists for Weird Porn Matt and discusses plans for the SCGT with Scott. Send your amry list to domhook@live.co.uk

Finally there is a fluff reading from Scott, make sure you listen to it all with great care, as by the end it is essentially a full on sexually explicit e-book (featuring JLS!).

Enjoy!

Welcome to  a very special release; the first Videocast in Black Sun history! What a fantastic way to kick off 2013. This was the idea of #To40KG co-host Gary Hennessey, who went on to film//edit//produce this episode. So massive thanks to him for putting the work in to get this done.

The video itself is what you may expect from The Black Sun, we don’t take ourselves too seriously as we play some toy soldiers, have some beers and take the piss of one another (especially poor Jan!). I almost didn’t release this, as its true what they say, the camera really does add 108 pounds (either that or I am just really fat!!). I look disgusting, and safe to say this video will prompt some form of dieting…so The Black Sun officially IS good for your health!!

We’d love to hear any opinions on this episode, infact more than usual. Let us know what you think of this style of show and if it proves popular we will endeavour to put out more.

Thanks for watching,

Chris – @the_black_sun

Pew pew pew motherfuckers,

Here are some photos for you to enjoy whilst listening to Episode 6 of the show. Remember we had to paint an Elite choice as well as a Fast Attack choice for Month 3. We are past the halfway point now, so lets see how everyone is getting on…

Hey,

Just a quick one today guys. After a chat with our sponsor, Byron Orde from www.elementgames.co.uk I have reordered the Month 2 blog post so that it flows better with Episode 5 – namely putting the armies in the order they are discussed on the show.

Hope that makes for a better and more interactive experience.

Chris – @the_black_sun

Pew pew pew motherfuckers!

Ok…Its all well and good calling this thing an audio blog, but without updates it sort’ve fails, right? So, only about a month late, but finally you can feast your eyes on the fantastic work we all produced during Month 2. Unfortunately The Joe dropped out at some point during this month, so no more Space Wolves to share.

So without further a do, here are photos of what everyone painted in Month Two. For this month we had to paint a HQ and a Troops choice, including all relevant add-on’s and Dedicated Transports. I have included small bits of blurb that some of the participants submitted. Obviously for me and Gary you can listen to Episode 5 for our thoughts! Apologies for the quality of some of the photos.

“I still don’t like painting raiders but that’s the second one all done. Month 2 has allowed me to spend a little bit of time on my Archon and I am particularly happy with the Agoniser and cloak. The Warriors took a little extra work as I couldn’t decide on the helmets but I think the gold has worked well.”

“This month was a real challenge. After the first month of 12 Warbikers, I knew what pain this month’s 12 Warbikers held! I decided to paint Wazzdakka first to get the ball rolling. It’s a lovely model from Forgeworld. I am happy overall with it, though I feel I may have done to much rust. I then decided to make and paint the 12 bikers in 3 days! Managed it and here are the results;”

Wazzdakka

12 Ork Warbikers

Aaron Bailey – Eldar

“That’s all the guardians done, so it should be interesting getting into the Aspect Warriors in future months to add some different colour schemes. Glad I don’t have to do any more white! Pretty happy with how things have turned out and was great to see them on tabletop with Jan’s fully painted Month 2 stuff for the first time.”

“So month two was a tricky month for me as I suffered from a bad case of painters block. Originally I was going to paint some Cultists as my troops choice, but no matter what ideas I had, I was never happy with the finished product. Then I had the same trouble with my Daemon Prince… But! Four weeks later and I have finished! First up is my Daemon Prince Kora’Van’eth. Formerly Jarod the Blackened of the 16th Legion. I had originally planned to paint him with pale blue skin, but as time went on I felt that he just was not looking right. Eventually I decided to go for a more “default” scheme and settled on red, which I feel suits the model much better! Next up is a small unit of Plague Marines, Although I had planned to replace these guys with Cultists, lack of time and my love of these older minis meant I had to include them.”

This time me and Gary are joined by regular guest to the main show, Weird Porn Matt.

We briefly talk about the new Chaos Space Marine releases, including the Daemon Seagull.
In a break from the norm, we talk about gaming as Matt runs us through his proposed 1850 list (Is 1850 points a standard game or have we been duped?!).

I contribute absolutely nothing whatsoever, other than putting us off topic. shocker eh!

We actually learn a few rules a long the way, as well as a sex tip for Dom and a pretty disturbing fact from Gary!

Obviously we jest in reference to other 40K podcasts, I’d actually be interested to here about any other good shows out there!

It occured to me (after a few prods on Twitter) that I really needed to be sharing some photos of what we are all getting up to in this project. This should complete my aim of making the Tale of 40K Gamers Podcasts a sort of audio blog.

So without further a do, here are photos of what everyone painted in Month One. Remember we had to paint a Troops choice as well as a Heavy Support choice. I have included small bits of blurb that the participants submitted. Obviously for me and Gary you can listen to Episode 2 for our thoughts! Apologies for the quality of some of the photos.

Annihilation Barge




Gary Hennessey – Orks

Battlewagon

Jan Proudley – Tyranids
I choose the Gargoyles and the Termagaunts because I wanted to get half of my chaff out of the way and give myself a good head start model-wise. Painting wise here’s what I did:

Skin was a base coat of Baneblade Brown, followed by a shade of Athonian Camoshade and then I highlight of Baneblade Brown and Ulthuan Grey 50/50.

Carapace was a base coat of Castellan Green, followed by a line and edge highlight of Skarsnik Green and a finer highlight of Moot Green.

The orange is done with a Troll Slayer Orange with a shade of Athonian Camoshade to add depth.

Teeth and eyes done with Ulthuan Grey.

Saying that I really enjoyed painting the gargoyles and trying new things on the wings which has aided me in painting one thing in particular for month 2.

10 Termagaunts

20 Gargoyles

Matt Lee – Dark Eldar
“For my month 1 choices I went for a unit of 9 Wyches in their Raider and a Talos. The Wyches were my first troop unit simply because I had the models. The Talos was a model I wanted to paint very early on to ensure I could fit in the paint scheme.

The Models have been painted in a simple dark scheme with some brighter colours. All the metal areas have been painted Ironbreaker washed with a 1:1 mix of Abaddon Black and Nuln Oil, and then edge highlighted with Mithril Silver. Most areas have then been kept black. Gems and pipework have been painted Hawk Turquiose and all hair painted orange. I have loved painting the models so far, bar the Raider; I am really out of practice painting large flat areas. Luckily I have a lot more vehicles to paint…Roll on month 2!”

9 Wyches

Raider

Talos

Aaron Bailey – Eldar
“I really enjoyed the poseability of 40K models and not having to rank stuff up. Basing was fun to do as well. I knew the paint scheme I wanted and was happy with the results. Painting the tank was strange, airbrush was really helpful for a smooth coat and really quick. The best part was having the iMessage chat to keep motivation with some healthy banter and seeing others progress. It kept it really interactive. Overall I’m really happy so far and can’t wait to play some games. Pew pew!”

10 Guardians w/ Weapons Platform and Warlock

Falcon

Joe Hadfield – Space Wolves

5 Grey Hunters

5 Long Fangs

Craig Wheeler – Chaos Space Marines
“So I went for the Black Legion mainly because I wanted to update my old army, but also because I wanted to show that they are not a dull army to paint. Hopefully I’ve managed to achieve that!

With the first squad I spent about a while posing each marine, to get across that these guys have been through roughly 10 000 years of warfare and treat most battlefields with casual indifference. Paintwise, I went for a dull bronze rather than gold for the shoulder trims as I felt that anything brighter would make the models look to ‘busy’ with the yellow or red spot colours.

I’m not to happy with the bases if I’m honest. I wanted the barren desert look, but I feel that i should have put some more rocks or bones on their just to break it up a bit.”

This episode I am joined by Gary Hennessey, who will be my regular co-host on this segment. The sound is horrible in parts  as we were sat in the wind outside Wetherspoons, then the seagulls kick in. Sorry!!

We give a brief overview of what the Tale of 40k Gamers is, who is involved and what they are doing as well as some updating you on the love life of New Cock Jan! Gary also goes a bit more in depth about the plans for his Ork army.

This was recorded over a month ago, but they will be more frequent now, so keep an eye out for future episodes. If you aren’t interested in 40K, then just dont listen!!
