Goonhammer’s Doing Some Video!

Hello, Dear Reader. I have a video for you today:


So yeah, we’re doing video. You have questions. I will provide some answers.

Are you pivoting to video?

No. We’ll be doing video in addition to all of our standard article content. We’ll also be doing video versions of some articles – specifically, those with a longer shelf life which make for good content to put on in the background while you paint.

I hate video.

Good for you.

Why are you doing this?

Because we wanted to, is the short answer. The long answer is that we’re looking for ways to reach beyond the group of sickos who want to read 20,000-word articles.

What kinds of videos are you going to make?

Ok, now you’re asking some good questions. There are already a ton of battle reports out there and they’re boring to watch anyways, and while we’ve got some great painters at Goonhammer there’s a glut of video paint tutorials, plus none of us are Duncan. So instead we’re going to focus on what we do best – articles about tactics, lore, and meat-based puns.

Wait, you’re doing Meatwatch videos?

No, that was a joke. Mostly it’ll be tactics, and tactics content which can stick around a while. Topics like “how do I pick targets” and “how do I choose the order to shoot my units” are pretty much evergreen, regardless of edition. We’re going to start with those. Also, we’ll do the occasional video version of a written article. There is no plan to do video-only content at this time, but that may change if we have something that just doesn’t work as an article.

Did you say you’re going to have Steve Conlin doing voices?

Yeah, Steve Conlin, who you may know from his work with Black Library or as “James Workshop,” has done some voice work for us and we’re excited to do more work with him in the future. He’s great, and our plan is to work with him to bring some solid levity to what are otherwise very dry topics.

Who’s paying for all of this?

Oh I’m glad you asked. While we’re footing most of the bill, we have three wonderful sponsors who agreed to help us pay for video production, sight-unseen:
