32, Episode 2: War of the Orks

Quite a different direction from the Black Library.

I am happy to say that Alex and I were able to record the second episode of 28’s podcast, 32! In it, we discuss the contentious topic of the children-friendly Warhammer Adventure books, having both read the 4th entry into the Warped Galaxies series: War of the Orks. Give the episode a listen to learn what they thought about the story and the series as a whole. If you are trying to find it on your favorite podcast platform, I suggest searching: 32 Team 28.

Space Marine with Plasma rifle

Darby "Gladiator" Lorensia with a human-scaled plasma rifle next to a Space Marine with one scaled to them.

Last year I created a few tutorials for converting smaller scaled weapons, including a Space Marine-scaled plasma rifle. Despite being really happy with the result, I never actually built a Space Marine to wield the firearm. Eric recently painted a Kill Team of Dark Angels without any special weapons, so the plasma rifle would make a great addition to the warband. With this in mind, I quickly modified a Primaris Intercessor to look like a traditional Space Marine, to fit with the rest of the Kill Team!
