Episode 33: The Case of the Missing Interview

Spy Magnifying GlassWhat can I say?  When it rains, it pours.  Stupid saying really but nevertheless I am forced to apologize once again, partially due to the minor lateness of this episode (though that is closer to normal) and mostly due to the lack of an interview with Mike Biancone.  You see, when recording this episode we had an interview scheduled with Steel Thunder himself with regards to the upcoming Berks Spring Assault 4.  Life, mostly being work, stepped in the way, however, and Mike couldn’t make it so we’ll have to postpone that bit of content for Episode 34!  In the meantime, enjoy our discussion of the news, the latest campaign the guys are involved in (hosted by our friends at the Stomping Grounds) and of course our Battle Report!

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mention that due to the late airing of this episode (entirely my fault by the way) some of the content is already a bit out of date.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 30: Chrismachanukwanzaakahs

From Tanksgiving to the “Holidays”, Happy Holidays everyone!  In this episode we’re bringing you the gift of … tournament reports!  Yay!  It’s our coverage of the recently past Berks Winter Blast tournament held by the Berks Gaming Club.  All the members of the podcast, excluding yours truly were in attendance and a good time was had by all, but don’t take my word for it, listen to the episode!  Breaking news, of sorts, we’ve got info on the Dark Angels, check out the rumors section of ‘This Random Time Period’.  We’re also giving you a small preview of the Crusade of Fire campaign book (which we’ve somewhat inexplicably included in the news segment of the show).  More details on that will come when we’ve had a chance to actually play through it.  And once again we’ve got another Q&A coming from our Facebook page, keep it up guys!

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 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 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!
