I’ve listened to just about every episode of The Black Sun since 2015. Chris is one of the best hosts in the community. He has an awesome recipe of keeping things light and hilarious while having in-depth discussion. His event coverage is some of the best you can find in Age of Sigmar. It’s been especially awesome listening to his journey with Ironjawz over the last year, covering all facets of the hobby. Recently, he switched over to The Black Sun Weekly format with shorter, more regular shows (usually with a guest), and they’ve been fantastic. Whether you’re interested in hobby advice, list building and tactics, event coverage, or inspired music choices, it’s all here, and it’s always a great time.

Just keeps getting better.

Evening all… A little bit late this week as I was too busy painting last week to complete the edit for this evening. Find out more in the show!!

I am joined by Daniel Street, host of the new AoS Shorts podcast; a fantastic in depth look at how to improve your play, with well explained distilled information on all facets of AoS. Find the Facebook page here; https://m.facebook.com/aos.shorts/

There was a slight issue with background noise this episode. I’ve tried to remove it all, but then in re-adjusting the levels following this there is some minor distortion. Hopefully shouldn’t be too problematic during listening.

Happy Easter!

After gorging yourself on chocolate and alcohol all weekend, what better way to recover than with a bit of TBS Weekly!

Finally, just a friendly reminder that there is a donate button on the homepage at http://www.theblacksun.co.uk – I don’t usually push this as I make the Podcast for the love of it and certainly not to make money (if that was the aim; it would be an abject failure!), however things are a bit tight at the moment so if you can spare even £1 towards hosting costs etc that would be hugely appreciated. Thanks so much to those who have donated in recent weeks!

Many thanks and much love,
