In a revival of the classic Sixgun show Angels of Death, we get Listener Number One Niklas on board and talk Warhammer for a whole episode.
This episode was recorded almost a month ago, but was much delayed due to Fab being very busy. We are continuing with our efforts to get the show back to a more regular schedule. Please hang in there for a while longer.
Anyway, back to the topics: This episode is all about the Warhams. First, Niklas explains how he got into the hobby. In fact, Dave and Fab were instrumental in pulling him back in.
Mike talks about the Black Library books he’s read since the last episode he was on.
Finally, Dave summarises all the Warhammer news that have been happening. Alas, by the time you hear this, none of this will be news to you. Blame Fab.
We also discuss the Everchosen painting competition, the new Lord of the Rings release, Warcry, the Repulsor Executioner tank, a new Machanicum transport and the magnificent Chaos Knight.
Fab wants to paint this bust of Bismarck.
We end the show with some feedback and introduce the Repository of the Sigillites – let us know what you think! Get in touch via Twitter, by joining the Sixgun Discord or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to Bytemark for graciously providing bandwith for this podcast.

People On This Episode
Join Dave, Mike, Joe and Fab on an episode full of Warhammer painting. Well, when we say painting, we mean we’re mostly talking about painting instead of actually doing it.
Fab, Dave, Mike and Joe come together to discuss their progress, or rather the lack of such, on their Warhammer 40K painting challenge #4Feldherren. While Dave’s actually been painting, he’s mostly added additional stuff to his commitment. Joe has been painting a lot, but none of it has been for the challenge. Fab and Mike have both progressed tiny amounts.
The lads also discuss the return of Necromunda and the new Star Wars miniatures game from Fantasy Flight Games.
We also talk about Ring Raiders for some bizarre reason that really isn’t apparent afterwards. Looks like the Luftwaffe are also fans.
Did Fab mention that he met Sabaton? Oh yeah, and he also bought the tank.
We end the show with your feedback. We have some catching up to do, since we weren’t able to include a feedback section last time. We also did it in record time, because Joe had to go to bed.
