Episode 23: The Aquila Has Landed

It’s 6th Edition baby!  Everything old is new again, including podcast episode titles, hooray!  Anyway, as I’m sure you’ve guessed, this is our first episode officially covering 6th edition of Warhammer 40000.  We’ve got a full crew this go ’round with Andy, Mike and Dave joining us to give first impressions on the new rules.  Plus our signature Battle Report this episode covers a lot of new features, including allies!  Not to mention the triumphant return of the Rules of Engagement.  We’re going back to basics with this one and starting simple, with movement.  P.S.  I apologize if it sounds like some of us are standing in a wind tunnel during this episode.  It’s been well over 90 degrees here (33 for you Celsius folks) and the A/C’s are on overdrive.

Episode 22: 6th Edition Cometh

As Opy says, “5th Edition, we hardly knew ye … actually we knew ye quite well,” and aside from the ye’s, that’s the truth.  But, out with the old and in with the 6th Edition!  So begins our shift from rumors to facts and all the joy and pain and suffering that comes with learning everything you know all over again … huzzah!?  Before we drop 5th like a bad habit though, we give it a fond farewell, cover one last 5th Edition tournament hosted by Stomping Grounds and of course, the epic conclusion to our three part Battle Report miniseries.  Get some!

Episode 21: Wish List

It is the beginning of the end … of 5th edition.  It seems like only … several years ago … it all got started, but as Star Trek episode titles say, “All good things”.  But the future is coming!  What will it bring?  Ponies?  Candy?  Unicorns that eat ponies and poop candy?  ‘Cause that’s crazy and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  Anyway, with likely less than a month to go the gang here at Turn 8 thought it was a good time to express our greatest hopes and deepest fears … for 6th edition.  Some ideas are from the rumors (fake ones or otherwise) and some are Bill’s deep seated neuroses … err .. I mean, fresh ideas!  And of course, part 2 of our three part Battle Report Miniseries is here!  Farseer Ellysia and Kor’sarro Khan meet again on the field of battle, with decidedly different results from their last encounter!  Don’t miss it!
