Episode 39: Reflections of the Past

Reflections of the Past ImageTime for the split personality, Jekyll & Hyde, edition of the Turn 8 Podcast.  Don’t let that scare you away though, we’ve got a lot of great content to deliver here.  Though perhaps a bit overdue, Andy takes us through the Tau Enclaves codex supplement for a bit of a mini review.  Plus, as a sort of one year plus (plus, plus) anniversary of 6th edition, we thought it was the right time to reflect on what our Hopes and Fears were for sixth and if and how they were addressed.  Last but not least, a very special edition of the Battle Report.  It’s our first sequel!  The dreaded hive fleet Quetzalcoatl returns to face off once again with their old enemy, the Eldar.  If you’d like to hear the first part of this story (or hear it again) take a listen to Episode 26.  So, why is this episode a bit schizophrenic?  Well basically because this episode was recorded at two very different times.  Most of the content was recorded back in July but the battle report recording and most importantly, the news, we’re recorded recently.  Please enjoy!

Oh and I almost forgot, News!  That’s right, This Random Time Period In 40k makes it’s triumphant return in this episode.

    As we mention in this episode I have extended the time frame for the Contest to the end of October. This is purely due to my lack of getting episodes out in time. I wanted to make sure people who wanted to participate had reminders about it and whatnot so … yeah.

    To answer your question directly, we did receive your submission, however, I hope you understand if I refrain from commenting on it for now. Truth is, just getting anything from anyone is pretty darned cool in our eyes, so thank you!

    I wanted to add in on the point of ‘First Blood’. In both the Emperor’s Will and the Relic, the objectives (be that 2 or 1 mobile in the Relic) are worth 3 points. So scoring Slay the Warlord and Line Breaker can help to counter First Blood. On real problem with First Blood is that only one player in the game can score it. But I think it servers as a pretty good tie breaker.
