Episode 52 : Inferno Part IV: Painting and Understanding the Custodes, and Prospero Burns Debate

In the fourth part of our Inferno coverage, we finally begin to tackle the redoubtable Talons of the Emperor, by analyzing the Emperor's praetorians, the Custodes. In this we are aided by Mark's experience winning the Adepticon friendly tournament with his golden boys. In Painting Black … and other Colours we continue our discussion of the Custodes by talking about how to achieve that perfect gold colour on your models. We then host our first-ever Age of Darkness debate, as we are joined by Max from Road to Terra and Jake from Covenant of Fire to settle the question “is Prospero Burns good” once and for all!

Two-Week Hobby Challenge, 14 January to 28 January

As mentioned on the show, from now on we'll be posting the successful Two-Week Hobby Challenges onto our blog! This allows us to better showcase the great work the community is doing, and as the blog posts will come out closer to when the challenges are actually due (rather than when the episode drops), it will hopefully make the whole thing slightly less confusing! At the end of this post there is also the Challenge Calendar to keep track of when the phases start and end!
