Spunge Murphy's Audio Cast Ep2

Hey there!
I listen to a lot of podcasts. A lot more than i listen to music on my ipod and i love relaxing and escaping with some good tunes!
So i thought why not have a go at doing my own? And thus Spunge Murphy's Audio Cast was born! The topics i will be talking about will be Warhammer, tv/movies, comic books, college life and more! Wrestling was going to be on it aswell but that ended up as its own episodes called Super Wrestle Bros and joined by a friend of mine.
I'm trying to release on at least every two weeks and have clips released on my YouTube channel so make sure to check it out on itunes!
And if you have any questions for the podcast make sure to let me know!

My 5 Favourite Warhammer Ebay buys


Ah ebay i love you! But my paypal account does not. I usually try to check ebay once a week to see if any really good auctions manage to slip under every ones radar and swoop in with a cheeky bid. It doesn't happen to often but sometimes i can get stuff really cheap.

So here is my 5 favourite buys off ebay so far

Old army books


I just can't let go of the old world yet! It will always be with us! And the old world books have so much lore, history and information that is great for resourcing ideas for armies and models.
The most recent books i picked up were dark elves, orcs & goblins, lizardmen and the empire for €12.64 combined. All were paperback and 7th edition or lower except the Empire book that was the hard back 8th edition book.

Space Marine
Commander and Command Squad



This is probably one of the best buys i have had. Both were from the same seller and got both really cheap. I think i was the only bidder on both items and it feels like they slipped under everyone's radar! Managed to get both at a nice price of €10! Bargin or what!

TT Combat Rift Gates
Time for some scenery! TT Combat has tons of MDF scenery pieces and i didn't know it until i found their rift gates. This wasn't an auction but both were cheap at €9.34 for both rift gates. They are smaller than the GW realm gates but they are a nice alternative.

Skaven Deathrunners

As a Skaven guy i LOVE these models! And i managed to pick up the set of two for just €7! The price of these has gone up on ebay recently and there are a lot less of these up for sale. These 2 models are from the Warhammer Quest bow but for some reason GW has released some of the models separately on there site and the Deathrunners aren't sold seperate yet! AARRGGHH! Shakes fist!

Goblin Spider Riders


I have been trying to get Goblin spider riders for song long! They were never going cheap and eventually i paid €20 for some. But i did get 16 of them! They are from the old battle of skull pass starter set. More pricey than the other stuff but for 16 of them i don't think i would have got a better price anytime soon!


Here's to many more ebay finds at cheap prices! Found some good stuff on ebay? Make sure to let me know!

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire The Sepulchral Guard!


Wow what a day it has been! We had live video  from warhammer tv showing the Kharadron Overlords and their battletome but first they showed a new video announcing the newest faction to Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire the The Sepulchral Guard!!
 


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
They are pretty amazing looking and are going to look great leading in the skeleton hordes to battle.
And these are the first models for Grand Alliance Death since Age of Sigmar began. If you think about it the only stand alone skeleton model we have from GW is the Wight King. The Grave Guard kinda stand out from normal skeletons but none of them look like individual characters. Im really looking to this release! Hopefully not too late in the year but GW's releases have been on rapid fire the last year so maybe the whole Shadespire release could be sooner than we hope for

Ebay Loot: Big Bad Goblin Spider Riders



Straight to the point. 15 goblin spider riders for €20 including delivery. How am i ment to pass that by!

Remember the Battle of skull pass starter box that came out for old 7th edition warhammer? It was dwarfs and goblins. I managed to get the dwarf half of the set but i really wish i had gotten the goblin half as well. Trying to get that box on ebay cost a pretty penny but i always kept an eye out for the goblin stuff.

 These guys were painted pretty bad when they arrived but i gave them a good stripping and they cleaned up nicely. The only thing i messed up with was i accidently snapped off one or two legs off.


I managed to get the guy to throw in a goblin boss as a bonus. Sweet! Hes a nice little guy and it's good to have a leader guy to go with my small goblin group.

They were all on bases and i would like to get them on some ovals eventually. Unless i find some cheap bases on ebay its not going to be any time soon unfortunately

5 Things I wish I’d known when starting the hobby

5 Things I wish I’d known when starting the hobby

I have been doing this hobby for about 6 years’ now and I’d say I’m experienced at it a little bit but when I started off I knew nothing! It took lots of trial and error over the years to get my painting and hobby to a half decent level. So, these are my 5 helpful bits of advice that I wish I’d known when I started the hobby

1.   Practice, Persistence and don’t worry
This probably applies to every hobby but when you’re starting off your first few attempts are probably gonna be pretty bad. I have a Space Marine sergeant that was one of the first models I ever painted and it has a brutal paint job on it but I will talk about him later. Painting can be something that takes time, practice and persistence. Overtime your efforts will improve and you will notice this by looking back at your older works. So don’t get worked up about your painting early on. Just keep at, learn different techniques and persist at it. Growing your painting skills is extremely rewarding

Can you really pick a miniature of the year?


In this month’s White Dwarf (January) there was an article about looking back at 2016 and reviewing what was released. And going through it they really did release some amazing stuff like a reintroduction of Warhammer Quest to the rise of the genestealer cult.

But the thing I’m wanting to talk about is at the end of the article, they have a part where you can vote for the miniature of the year where they have one model from each month they were released from (pg48).

Now the problem I see with this is
