Soul Wars Painting Competition

Due to the huge success of the last painting contest, I have decided to launch another one in celebration of the release of Soul Wars. The rules for this one are pretty simple, but everyone entering needs to follow them if participating. There will be a small prize for the winner of the contest. 

  1. Paint one model from the new Age of Sigmar Soul Wars boxset. Model must be from the boxset, but it can have conversion work done to it. No exceptions or substitutions will be allowed for this one. 
  2. To enter the contest, you need to purchase a Games Workshop product from either Leisure Hours Hobbies and Games or Paper and Plastic Games between June 30th and July 6th. You will be required to share a copy of the receipt that shows what was purchased and from where to be eligible.* 
  3. You will need to submit 2 photos of your entry. Photo number one needs to be the new model without paint on it. The other needs to be a picture of the finished.**

  7. The winner will be chosen via a combination of voting on the website and judge’s votes. 
  8. The Unstable Dice reserves the rights to modify any rules related to the contest. The prize for the contest will be determined by the number of entries and availability. The Unstable Dice reserves the right to reject or ban any entry from the contest. 

*Neither store is a sponsor or associated with this contest. The requirement is to foster local support for Age of Sigmar and the local community. Please make sure to remove any confidential information on the receipt before submitting.

**Only one file for each photo is allowed. However, you can combine images into a single file for the finished entry if you would like to show multiple angles. Be Creative!

Episode 03 - Maxing Out the Credit Cards

It is time once again to grab an axe, strap on a shield, and pull up your pants. The Unstable Dice Podcast is back with another episode. This week's episode kicks off with Chuck seeking ideas on how to replace the head on one of his models. The conversation quickly turns into us discussing what we have pre-ordered for second edition. We also talk a little about GW's strategy for the release and some of the cool things they have been doing with second edition.

In the second segment of the show, we breakdown the leaked Nighthaunts matched play points. We discuss some of things the list tells us about the future release and some of the things I am planning with my army. I also practice saying Grimghast Reapers quite a few times.

The show ends with America's Favorite segment of the show, Five Questions. This week's list is a mix of predictions, limitations, and maybe a little sadness. At least we wont get the stink eye from our spouses this week.
