Episode 29: Tanksgiving

Happy Tanksgiving everyone!  What do you mean there’s no such thing?  Just look at the pictures!  It looks like that table is being invaded by croissants, terrifying.  Anyway, more on that in the show as well as the exciting conclusion of Opy and Dave’s second half of the Chaos Space Marine codex review.  In this episode Opy takes us through the Chaos units.  We also cover the news and bring you another Chaos themed Battle Report, this time between Opy’s Dark Mechanicus army and Andy’s Dark Eldar(icus).  Epic Turn 8 battle, fight!  Additionally, for the first time in Turn 8 history, we finally have a Q&A section, huzzah!  One of our listeners and Facebook followers had a question for the crew so we took the time during this episode to answer it in the best way we can.  Hope it helps!

Episode 28: Sandy, Harbinger of Chaos

After one major and then one minor delay, we finally bring you our Chaos Space Marines codex review!!  Well, part one of it anyway, there’s a lot to cover after all.  In this episode Opy takes us through the Chaos specific Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers, and the Armory.  We also cover quite a bit of news and bring you another Chaos related rule.  Who doesn’t love a good challenge?  Next episode we’ll conclude the codex review as we cover the units.  I would also like to apologize for the lateness of this particular show.  As some of you know we delayed our recording due to hurricane Sandy which, if you don’t know for some reason, recently ravaged the east coast of the U.S., particularly New Jersey.  Most of us here lost power for at least a bit (or a lot more) but were otherwise OK, our trees however …   In addition to that delay, work and other personal things on my end delayed the debut of this episode from Friday till now, but anyway, we’re back with more quality podcast programing for your ear holes, enjoy!

Episode 27: Chaos Is Pretty

Breathe it in, that new codex smell!  It’s finally here, the hardbound, full-color … $50 … new Chaos Space Marine codex!  Check inside this episode for our preview of what’s new for CSM’s.  Of course we can’t tell you everything good or bad about the new codex right off the bat since as of this episode’s recording it had only been out for two days, however, there’s still a lot of good info to be had including our resident Chaos vet, Opy’s, initial impressions.  We’ve also flavored our Round-up and Rules of Engagement with sprinklings of Chaos-y goodness

Episode 16: End of Days

D-Day approaches!  For me anyway … and really I guess it’s W-Day, but whatever, the point is this is the last episode before yours truly is bound by the shackles of love.  As such there will be a little bit of a longer hiatus between episodes 16 and 17 (expected to be three weeks instead of what would be the usual two) so get your Turn 8 while it’s piping hot!  Today’s episode is back to basics with our usual bag of tricks, no special segments and therefore it’s a little more bite sized for those that enjoy a shorter show.  Also, we finally reveal the details about our Blind Fight, so tune in!

Plus don’t forget the usual great content including news and rumors and the Rules Of Engagement …

Episode 12: Come With Me If You Want To Live

I'll be, well you know ...

OK, enough teasing, it’s finally here, the moment you’ve all been waiting for … Hello Kitty Island Adventure Review! … err … Necron Codex Breakdown!  We’ve finally made it to our first full, official Codex release since we started this Podcast (Sisters of Battle White Dwarf getting an honorable mention) so we needed some help in the form of special guest host, Mike.  As to be expected, there’s a lot to cover so this episode is a little on the long side.  We apologize for that as we’d usually like to keep it around two hours but even after some drastic measures it’s still a biggun so brace yourselves.  On the plus side, we broke up the full Codex Breakdown around this week’s (Necron laced) Battle Report, to give you, our fine listening audience, a little break from all the new Necron nuggets.  You’re welcome!

Please note that due to the length of the Breakdown there will be no news and rumors or Rules Of Engagement segments in this episode.  Never fear though, they will return next episode!

Episode 7: Back In The Habit

Hey kids, it's Guinan!

Well folks, it’s finally here, the second part of the Sister’s of Battle White Dwarf codex, now with point values!  We give you all the gritty details as well as a few suggested uses and sample squads (also with point values!), and Bill gives his take as a long time Witch Hunter player.  Plus, in this episode we preview the Space Marine demo in preparation for the upcoming video game release.  I may know of one ravenous Ultramarine fan that might be a little bit excited.  Guess who it is!

Plus don’t forget the usual great content including news and rumors, the Battle Report and the Rules Of Engagement …
