EP 10: The Tyranid Creature Conference
In our ongoing interest in Tyranid design, we bring together Hydra and Hive Fleet Moloch to chat about just that.

In this episode we talk to Hydra about his most recent passion, Frostgrave, and how he's playing miniature games remotely in this time of Corona.There's a lot about Frostgrave and the idea of miniature liberation. However, we also talk about balancing family and hobby, why we're probably not getting into CAD sculpting any time soon, and how #Blanchitsu and #Inq28 is the equivalent of an artistic revolution.If you're not already following Hydra, you can see more of his work here:https://www.instagram.com/4ydra/http://h-archive.com/We talk a bit about the #FG28 hashtag, and you can see more about that here:https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/fg28/The featured artists from this episode can be found on on Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/77th_terrorfels/https://www.instagram.com/thewarsinger/And here are the Instagram handles for the other artists we mentioned:@hivefleetmoloch@with_teatea@btwnbolterandme@thepolysmith@a_polanscak

Bonus Episode: Vestigial Twin ( I )
Before there was Xenos Alchemist, there was Vestigial Twin: our preliminary attempt at exploring what we'd do with a podcast. As we've got a little more work to do on our next proper episode, this is meant to tide you over. In terms of subject matter, it focuses mostly on our thoughts on sculpting and our modeling histories. As this was one of our earliest attempts at podcasting, please excuse the weird audio. If we had a Patreon, this would be a filler episode. However we don't have a Patreon, so you get to enjoy this weirdness FOR FREE. LUCKY YOU!

We interview Tyranid visionary and multi golden demon award-winning artist Simon Schnitzler, also known as Hydra. This was meant to be about sculpting, but it's also a lot about how we all started collecting miniatures with action figures, and how "Schnitzler" is a really hard name to say.Be sure to follow Simon's work on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/4ydra/And on his hobby blog: http://h-archive.blogspot.com/Note: We recorded this episode years ago, but it's still a goodie.
