Yavin open xwing tournament vlog - DARKSUN 43


via IFTTT Last weekend I attended a 390 person tournament for xwing! It was amazing! And I forgot my power bank, so it's all me talking to the camera! Big thanks to all my opponents, I had an absolute blast and I think that's all down to the community. Also a big thanks to Alex, Alec, Vince and the team. Really smoothly run event. Really can't wait until 2018 now!

Patriot Games Regional


via IFTTT So here's my video review of how my day went at the Patriot Games regional. It's not time lapse footage - we were tight on space and I just thought it wasn't worth the risk. Considering I hadn't really flown the list before, I did well to go 3-3 which I'm pleased with. Unfortunately mostly everybody killed ventriss first and then went after bossk, which is not the way it's supposed to be! My list in full was: Bossk & Ventriss cluster (98) Bossk (50) - YV-666 Crack Shot (1), "Mangler" Cannon (4), Cluster Missiles (4), 4-LOM (1), Zuckuss (1), Dengar (3), Inertial Dampeners (1), Guidance Chips (0) Asajj Ventress (48) - Lancer-class Pursuit Craft Push The Limit (3), Latts Razzi (2), Glitterstim (2), Engine Upgrade (4) A big thank you to all the guys I played. Nice to see some familiar faces across the table as well as meet some new ones.

Blood Bowl Custom Throwing Templates Review - Darksun 41


via IFTTT I recently ordered some custom lasercut Blood Bowl throwing templates from http://ift.tt/2kfDm5a and thought id do a little product review for my first vlog of 2017! New House, New Year, New Vlog! I'd really recommend getting hold of one of these if you can. They are really reasonably priced, and work really well as prize support. The letter customisation is really easy, and the guys at Just Lasered at great :). Full Disclosure, I do know Melvin (the guy who runs Just Lasered), but i did pay for these and he's not giving me anything for them! Music from bensound.org

Kath Scarlet Repaint Video - DiceHate part 3 - Darksun 40


via IFTTT So Kris Sherriff from DiceHate and I have collaborated over a mini series on the Firespray. This repaint is part 3 of the series, and it turned out that I went for a green and white design! You can find the other videos in this mini series on Kris' channel (DiceHate) but just in case, here are the specific links: Part 1 - (where we waffle on about the paint jobs): (TBC) Part 2 - (Kris' painting video): https://youtu.be/ApUXoFPXsE4 Part 4 - (where we waffle on about lists): https://youtu.be/63NxVvSHn_Q As you can see, I've gone for a faux Kath Scarlet scheme, to tie in with the rest of my scum fleet, and i'm reasonably pleased with the way its turned out. Really enjoyed collaborating with Kris, if this format proves popular then we might look at repeating it again in the future. We potentially could start moving onto more current ships.

Blood Bowl Paint Jobs - Darksun 38


via IFTTT Getting ready for the new Blood Bowl Season - finishing off paintign some extra catchers and an old school wardancer. Im probably gonna give Elven Union a try, and so im not sure what the Wardancer model will be. I need to dig out my Squig as hes the Head Coach. So the Wardancer might end up being an extra fancy lineman, or maybe the apothecary. With thanks to www.bensound.org for the music :)

Blood Bowl Paint Jobs

So been painting up my final dudes, with some nicely highlighted glutes. Particularly pleased with the cloak on the wardancer, turned out way better than i'd hoped. Wet blending really helped!
