Hello, potential viewers! And welcome to yet another Warhammer 40,000: Conquest... series of video (and now audio!) productions. My name is Mitch, and I am "The Hive Tyrant."

As of May 26, 2015, I began a YouTube channel with the intent to cover anything and everything related to Conquest. Seeing as how I've now fully completed my in-depth analysis, overview and discussion of all of the cards and content of the Core set, I figured I should clean up the existing thread I'd been posting to and rebuild, from the ground up, something much more pleasant in both an aesthetic and user-friendliness sense.

If you're new to my channel, then welcome! And I wholeheartedly recommend you take a look at the content I've made thus far - plus, if you see something missing that you'd like to see, I'm always very open to suggestions from the community. I can only stand to improve with the receipt of input from people like you!

Or, if you're a returning viewer and already know what to expect, then press on and know that I'm almost certainly hard at work in producing the next bit of content to come.

To navigate to a specific video series I've produced, please see the post below:

A new video has arrived! Be sure to check out my first review from our Warlord cycle - it's an analysis of Ragnar Blackmane, along with his associated signature squad. Enjoy! ^_^

Looking for a bit of entertainment, this Friday afternoon or evening? Well, search no further, because the latest video is now live! Be sure to kick back and enjoy a cordial conversation and in-depth, strategy-centric analysis of Eldorath Starbane with none other than Regional tournament winning, and Conquest Facebook group moderating, John Gobeil!

If you decide to take a look, I very much hope you enjoy it.

Just want to say I'm loving the community spotlight videos. I think they are a great way for people to get some in depth knowledge on on their favorite warlord by learning those very experienced in playing them.

It's a great idea and I hope they keep coming! Thanks for all the work!

Thanks! I personally love hearing from veteran players too (particularly considering I came very late to this game), and I think that those videos make for an extremely refreshing change of pace relative to the rest of the channel's content (plus, I get to save HOURS on not needing to edit audio! Mwahaha). I've approached a few more people already about doing their own spotlights, and am very much looking forward to more of that kind of content to come.

Know anyone that likes Tyranids?

 

Well, after recording a couple hours of raw audio when our latest article was hot off the digital presses (and then spending about 15 hours editing it all together yesterday, dear lord), the latest video is now live! That makes three videos in three days!

Be sure to check out: "Horrific Legions" - The Great Devourer Preview

- and have a great weekend!

For the sake of long-term channel sustainability, I've slowed my content train ever so slightly this week, but I'm nevertheless quite pleased to release a new interview!

I strongly encourage you to check out a recent, excellent discussion I had with one of the two co-hosts of the First Planet podcast! It's my:

Community Spotlight: Ragnar Blackmane - featuring Scott Armstrong

Go give it a listen! And if you didn't manage to catch Episode 17 of the First Planet podcast, yours truly happens to be one of the guest hosts!

Another interview is live! This time, I have a great discussion with Varun Khetarpal - the 2015 UK National Champion - about the infamous Packmaster Kith! Be sure to give it a gander, and I hope you enjoy it!

I've played a couple of these. They look like they take a lot of work to make and there are a lot of good points on there. Definitely a good idea to put up the relevant cards to make it clear exactly what you mean, and lots of options are considered.

The one criticism I have is that when doing articles alone I feel you speak really slowly - about half to two thirds of what I'd consider normal speaking pace. Apart from that a great resource!

There's definitely a bit of distinct slowness, to the earlier videos (likely because I'm not used to doing these alone - when I made videos for Lord of the Rings, I had a partner to do reviews with), although I've certainly tried (and hopefully succeeded?), in picking up the pace somewhat in the more recent productions - probably most evident during the intros. I remember that the "Tyranid Hype!" video was very slow indeed, especially during the lore parts, and it likely didn't help too much that I was reading directly from a wee script I'd cobbled together. But in any case, your feedback is appreciated! I'll keep trying to improve these, as ever.

Yet another entry in the community spotlight series is now available for your listening pleasure! This time, I met up with Tobin from the Traxis Sector War Cast, and we had a fun, informative discussion about one of his favorite Warlords - our premiere Astra Militarum commander (and perhaps, unfairly maligned?), Colonel Straken! I very much hope you enjoy it, and as ever, more to come soon!

Yet another spotlight has arrived! This time, I interview none other than Ork-enthusiast Charles Smith, from The Warhammer 40k ConQast podcast, which results in quite possibly the most entertaining discussion of my series to date.  Be sure to check it out, and let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy it, and in any case, have a great weekend.

Greetings, everyone! I'm pleased to announce that today, not just one, but two brand-new videos are now live and available for your viewing pleasure. Do be sure to check out my latest projects! They are:

Community Spotlight: Torquemada Coteaz - featuring none other than these forums' very own Paul Steiner! Creator of the Conquest game results statistical database.

and...

Venomthrope Polluter! - The Great Devourer Preview, which covers our latest Tyranid spoiler, a synapse unit revealed just this afternoon by folks at The Tactical Squad podcast.

I very much hope you enjoy these, and have a lovely start of the week, everyone!

Boom! A new community spotlight is now live, and if there were a single entry in the entire series to catch thus far, this controversial episode might just be the one to see. This time, Eric Keilback, aka "Whiteblade" on our forums, strives to make a compelling argument in defense of his favorite, albeit much-maligned, Dark Eldar warlord - Urien Rakarth! I cannot encourage you enough to check out this very entertaining interview, and I hope you enjoy it!

Seeing as how Wednesday is nearly everyone's favorite day of the week, why not celebrate the occasion with the latest community spotlight, featuring none other than everyone's favorite Warlord?

This time, it's Old Zogwort's time to shine! I very much hope you enjoy my latest production - an interview with Jeremy Goniea, better known as these forums' own, "Blacklanner!"
