Just one quick update before we get stuck in, as the Spring Cleaning Challenge draws to a close.

Since April, we've set people the challenge of taking their old collections of models down from the shelves, blow the dust off them, and find some ways to breath new life into them.

The challenge ends on the 19th May, so make sure to get your Projects finished up!

Shadowborne Answer The Riddle Of Oathsworn

Jamie Jolly of Shadowborne Games comes onto the show, revealing the answer to the riddle they've been teasing us with for the past few weeks: Oathsworn!

He and Sam take a trip into this new game's world, exploring its dark forests and getting a look at the monstrous miniatures and characters that will call it home.


There's been a ton of news lately, and we took the time to highlight a couple of pieces before diving into the mammoth of announcements from Warhammer Fest.

Warhammer Fest 209 Round-Up

Dominating the news has been the ton of releases appearing from 2019's Warhammer Fest. There's a lot to get through, so let's get started!

  • The Splintered Fang Tribe - We take a look at the latest Chaos worshippers of Warband to have been revealed.
  • Citadel Contrast Paints - A new type of paint is joining the Citadel range, aimed at making it even easier to bring colour to the massed ranks of your armies.
  • Tons and tons of Warhammer 40k - Loads of 40k releases were announced, ranging from chibi figures, to the return of Aeronautica Imperialis, and the upcoming Chaos Knights Codex.
  • The Scouring of the Shire - Games Workshop apparently found Sam's Christmas list, as the next supplement for the Middle-earth game will be the Scouring of the Shire, along with lots of new hobbits.

A Closer Look At Verge of War

Verge of War is returning to Kickstarter on Tuesday the 21st of May to help fund the game's next two factions.

The Weekender crew have been challenged to try out some of their innovative free-pose models and see what they think of this total freedom in positioning your figures.


We finish the show with a look at two Kickstarters:

  • ReRoll App - A new app that lets you keep track of your RPG characters and create customisable pixel art of them.
  • 28mm Fauns - RGD Gaming is looking to Kickstart a new selection of plastic fauns and other assorted beastmen.

Which of these two catches your eye?

Have a great weekend of gaming!
