Shadespire; An unintentionally hilarious audio book!

I while back as part of my 'moving in present' I bought myself the book Shadespire: The mirrored city.

It's not cheap (£18 hardback!!) but I thought I deserved it . . .  and I really enjoyed it.

I will be frank and admit I do not fully understand the ending but hopefully a second read will help clarify that with me.

However the book itself really helps set the scene with the background of Shadespire and a greater understanding of the set up of the game and the motivations of certain warbands. Even how warbands can end up fighting themselves within the game!

I really like the concept of 'infinite reflections' and again this drawing of parallels between the Stormcasts and the Warriors of Chaos.

I enjoyed it so much I popped into the Enfield GW at the weekend (which is a three minute drive from my brothers) and picked up this. . . . .

This is an audio book on CD of three short stories connected to the Shadespire lore.

I have never listened to audio books before and it cost me £12 but I decided to give it a go.

Monday morning I popped it into the CD player as I drove to work and well . . . . .

I was nearly late for work.

Not because the CD was so good I had to stop due to being enraptured with the story but because I has laughing so hard I thought I was going to crash the car.

The voice acting is so O.T.T. it is bordering on parody!

During the third story 'The Autumn Prince' the guy doing the voice for the Sprite just decided to stop giving a fuck and turns it all the way up to eleven!!

One thing I do know now is I will never sell my soul to Khorne because of the silly accent I will have to speak with for the rest of eternity.

I know Warhammer Fantasy by it's nature is supposed to be over the top and my gaming buddies and I catch ourselves every now and again and crack a smile with some of the stupid things we have to say when playing the game but my word this is just something else.

Shadespire. Ironskull Vs the Warden.

This last Sunday Lee and I met up at IWG to smash Skulls (literally) via Shadespire.

After my dubbing last week I had spent long hours brooding over my library of cards and working on a killer deck.

A (slight) return.

With the new house at the end of phase two (i.e. we actually have a liveable space), and my (sort of) having a handle on my new job I hope to be able to blog at least every couple of weeks until Riotville is built (but more on that later).

Truth be told there has been very little going on, on the hobby front but here is a little update. . . . . .

So we are moving (IRL).

So that's it for now.

The moving vans turn up at 7am tomorrow morning and the Dunnage Clan is on the move.

This is NOT all my 28mm crap. Not even close
Hope to have occassional updates as a sign of life until the house is sorted but with my paints and mini's all packed away, blogging will be minimal.

Hopefully normal service (whatever that means) will resume sooner rather than later.

Shadow war Armageddon at Shaggy's part 3

The third and final game of the day would see Shaggy trying to get revenge on my Inquisitor by raiding his base and blowing up the door to his resources!

Shadow war Armageddon at Shaggy's part 2

 The next mission we played was an 'ambush' mission.

This would see my warband holed up in their bunker and the Catachans would have the opportunity to ambush me.
