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!

40K Advanced Orders: Dark Eldar June 4th

Dark Eldar RazorwingWell, well, well … what do we have here?  Not the Razorwing sadly, that was just a tease, but there are three new Dark Eldar models available for pre-order from Games Workshop as of today, as well as the Dark Eldar Battleforce.  You can pre-order any of them now and they will become available on June 4th.

So let’s get into the details, shall we?  Or you can skip right through to the gallery below, either way.


The Talos Pain Engine/Cronos Parasite Engine

One kit will make either monstrous creature and they look amazing in my opinion.  I actually didn’t mind the look of the old one but this one just blows it away.  These half machine, half … something that used to be living, things can slice and dice and shoot twin-linked Splinter cannons, good times to be had.  Price in the U.S. is set at $44.50 for the 89 piece kit.


The Venom

This little open-topped, dedicated transport comes with two hanging Wyches to represent the unit being transported.  These will also work with your Raider if you want to mix and match, which is a good thing if you’d, say, want to put a squad of 5 Kabalite Trueborns with Shardcarbines and Splinter cannons on the transport that can also have two Splinter cannons.  If you’re within 18″ and didn’t move, that’s 33 poison weapon shots, just stay away from armor.  Price in the U.S. is set at $30.00 for the 62 piece kit.


The Scourges

These would be the Dark Eldar’s shooty fast attack unit for those that don’t want to be all up close and personal like the Hellions.  These Shardcarbine wielding man-birds look really nice.  The detailing in the wings, especially the feathered variety, will probably make those bits quite desirable to several other armies out there.  Price in the U.S. is set at $25.00 for the 80 piece kit.


The Battleforce

This is your standard get-started-with-40k kit.  That said, it’s a pretty good deal as it comes with 10 Warriors, 10 Wyches, 3 Reaver Jet Bikes and a Raider, all for about $22US less than what they would cost individually.  Price in the U.S. is set at $95.00 for the 365 piece kit.

Well I know I’m excited about this but it may just be because my army is Dark Eldar … hmm … anyway, if you would like to order, hit up the source link and get to it!
