Dice of Doom Podcast 024: Games Workshop Switch to Resin Models and Do Rules Really Matter, Duncan’s Right of Reply

Dice of Doom PodcastIn this fun filled episode of the podcast we discuss the TV show that nearly was Korgoth of Barbaria, the switch by Games Workshop to move to Finecast resin for their models and we give Duncan a chance to discuss his views on whether rules matter or not.

In a revisit to a topic that we discussed on what we consider to be one of our best episodes ever, we give Duncan the opportunity to debate his side of the ‘Do Rules Really Matter’ issue. We look at whether or not a character needs stats to be roleplayed well, when it’s OK to ignore dice rolls and optional rules for strip-roleplaying (it’s a pants-lite system).

We also look at the recent move by Games Workshop to change their model production from metal to a new type of resin called Finecast. This has generated quite a bit of debate as to the merits of the new material, so we sent Duncan out to have a look at them and report back. We also discuss the pricing issues relating to Games Workshop miniatures.
