Episode 32: Better Late Than Never

Better Late Than Never Episode ImageSorry Folks, I did it again.  But as the title says, better late than never so we present to you the glorious, if somewhat late, Episode 32!  The big story here is twofold: First, we review the Dark Angels codex and give you our take on the new rules, and Second, it’s Bill’s first turn as Command of a Codex review!  As per our usual theme now, we also bring you a Dark Angel themed Battle Report to coincide with our Codex review.  Of course we also have our usual news and rumors and our Q&A this week is actually a rules question … so we’re bringing a Rules of … Q&A!  Please, enjoy responsibly.

Episode 26: The Campaign Trail 2012 – Part II

This bipartisan campaign rages on!  Who will claim the victory … the Aggressors or the Defenders?  That’s right folks, it’s part two of our continuing Warhammer 40k campaign coverage and this time we brought in the experts … or rather, the expert, Isaac.  Indeed this campaign is his brainchild and so in this show we crack open his skull and pick apart the gooey inside for details … metaphorically speaking of course.  Part 1 in the show covers the games that have taken place since the last episode while Part 2 gets into the details about the rules and the story.  This episode is jam packed though because we’ve also got our spin on the recently released FAQ’s.  All that content means this show is a little on the longer side so you might want to take it in doses.  On the positive side, I got to reuse our campaign graphic!  Yay!

Plus don’t forget the usual great content including This Random Time Period in 40k and Rules of Engagement …

Episode 15: The Mother Load

Ho boy, it happened again didn’t it?  Yup, really long episode to cover a large amount of content.  You guessed it folks, solid rumors and PDF’s about Warhammer 40k 6th edition are flying around the internet and we’re here to talk it all up.  There’s so much to discuss in fact that we have to go without our usual Rules of Engagement and the show is still over 3 hours!  We also bring back friend of the show Andy to discuss what has changed since Episode 4 when we first brought you these rumors.  Oh, and on top of all of that … the Necron FAQ dropped!

Episode 14: The World of Tomorrow

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the future.  Good news!  We’re still in it!  As a side note, sorry for the delay on this episode but as you know the holidays were upon us and things just tend to get a little more hectic around that time.  But now we’re back to catch up on all the stuff we missed, bringing you news about Opy and Bill’s first try at creating tournament rules and another Necron Battle Report.  Hope you all enjoy!

*As a side note, we’re testing out a new method of recording the episodes and as such there are a few hiccups.  I feel the quality is better, however, there are times in the episode where one voice blocks out another.  I apologize for this.

FAQ Update: Grey Knights

It’s that time folks, it’s finally here, the long awaited Grey Knight FAQ update.  It really is mostly a FAQ update as well.  These things usually have both Errata and FAQ’s but in this edition there are only two pieces of errata.

So what about the FAQ’s?  Well I won’t tell you everything here (we’ll leave that for the next podcast episode) but there are a few things of note.  Daemon’s have been cleared up, giving a list of what counts (hint, if it’s possessed, it counts).  Personal teleporters on your Dreadknight just means it’s a monsterous creature that moves like jump infantry.  Nemesis Falchions only give plus one to attack.  The Effect of Servo-Skulls do not stack and they don’t work on Orbital Strikes.  And finally, the big one, Scouts do not get to use their shunt move as part of the Scout Move.
