32, Chapter 10 - Angels of Death: Origin

In the first episode of 32 for 2023, Eric Wier and Alexander Winberg get together to chat about Warhammer +/ Warhammer TV. While they intended to watch and discuss the Angels of Death CGI series, Alex discovered that Warhammer TV is not available in Finland (at least at the time of the recording). Due to this, they instead watched an episode of the prequel series, Angels of Death Origins, because it was made available on YouTube.

Painting Sector Mechanicus Terrain

Dead Industrial Atmosphere

Although we have been building and painting miniatures for years, long before even the start of this blog (2013), we have never really painted any terrain, despite collecting a variety of the plastic sets Games Workshop released over the years. Ten years after starting Between the Bolter and Me, we decided we should change that. To our good fortune, Ana Polanšćak from Gardens of Hecate, recently released a tutorial for quickly painting derelict machinery and industrial terrain. The process looked quite easy, relying primarily on using a sponge to apply an interesting pattern of rust, so I found the Sector Mechanicus terrain I had sitting around since the release of Shadow War Armageddon (2017), and decided to give it a try!

2022, a year in review!

Now that 2023 has started, we wanted to look back at 2022 and see all that we accomplished on the blog. It is hard to believe, but we have now had the blog for a full ten years! I am happy to say we were able to maintain regular blog posts while also continuing our podcast, and weekly Twitch streaming. With this post we wanted to look at our most popular posts of the year, while also highlighting our favorite episodes of the podcast.
