  • Welcome to Episode 4


    Since we were so late recording the last episode we decided to just skip a month and try and get back to the regular 13th release date by delaying it a little more. Chris and Dan talk about what they have been up to, the Escalation tournament at the North West Games Centre, and are joined by Mathusala0 for a Skaven magic lore review/tactica. Feel free to leave any feedback here, or catch us on Facebook or @SkavenblightRad on Twitter. You can subscribe to our RSS feed and as if that's not enough we are also on iTunes.

  • And So It Begins...


    Hey there!A couple of weeks ago the HeelanHammer podcast did a dedicated Skaven episode. It got a few of us UnderEmpire forum regulars thinking that a Skaven podcast would be pretty cool. We kind of thought that it would end up being one of those forum things that never really goes anywhere, but thanks in large part to SkavenDan we actually got our shit together and recorded a test episode.We have quite a few ideas for further episodes and are planning to make this actually be a thing.I thought I would put up a blog as an easy way for you to keep track of what was going on with it. Both a bit of behind the scenes as we work on the trials and tribulations caused by a bunch of guys (girls are welcome too, but let's face it warhammer is mostly guys...) who only know each other though a forum trying to put together a workable podcast.I have a few ideas of what to put up on the blog:New episode announcementsBehind the scenes stuff to help out other people who want to get into podcastingHighligh
