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 31: Rise of the Dark Angels

Rise of the Dark Angels PosterHappy belated New Years everyone!  And happy belated episode as well but hopefully this episode should be worth the wait.  We’ve got some news, we talk about the Dark Angels and some rumors but I do have to mention that due to the late airing of this episode (entirely my fault by the way) some of the content is already a bit out of date.  Just keep in mind while listening that we recorded this before Dark Angels had officially arrived and all will be right with the world.  Additionally in this episode we close out the Campaign Trail as Opy, Andy and Dave participated in the epic battle to end all.  Details inside!  We also have another Q&A session so please enjoy!

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 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!

Episode 24: Little Devils

White Dwarf updates are going to be all the rage in 6th edition it seems, starting right now with Daemons!  It’s not a full codex but it’s more than just updated rules, now with new models!  And Fantasy too!  All this in a handy little pamphlet that comes packaged with the magazine but isn’t actually attached for easier transport with your existing codexes.  Neat feature?  More annoying crap to carry around?  You tell us!  Sound off in the comments.  Anyway, Dave is your guide this episode to all things Daemons, so thanks Dave!  Enjoy!

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!

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.
