Mortally Wounded Episode 33 – Hobbyist Highlight – Tim Barklay
Chris and James are back for a new year of podcasting, and what better way to kick off that to have a huge chat about hobby with none other than the Aussie Wargamer himself, Tim Barklay!
Tim is well known in the Australian Age of Sigmar community for his awe inspiring hobby, infectious enthusiasm and creativity. Tim is passionate about creating unique conversions and is always expanding his hobby horizons. At Cancon 2019, Tim took home the runner up for Coolest Army with his heavily converted forest themed Bretovaneth army. This year saw Tim come back in full force with an astounding display of his pirate themed Destruction army: “GROGWHOOFA’S KREW”. Tim wowed us all and the judges, and with some very tough competition, won the runner up trophy for Coolest Army and Judges Choice 3rd Place. Well done Tim! Tune in to catch some inspiration, hear Tim literally take over the podcast and listen out for some sage advice.
