The Opy Show LogoGreetings all!  Sorry for the short delay but we finally have our last episode of the year!  As 2013 comes to a close we get inundated with news galore, with even more to come in our first episode of 2014.  But before we look to the future let us focus on the here and now, the Opy Show!  Laden with heavy amounts of Opy we bring you our review (and by our, I mean … Opy’s) of Codex Inquisition and to close out the show with even more Opy, he regales us with tales of the 11th Company GT.  Plus, of course, don’t forget our famous Battle Report!  In this episode we have a truly lore inspired battle between the Dark Angels and the hated Chaos Space Marines.  Enjoy!

Episode 41: Where Have All The Sisters Gone?

Episode 41 Image: Adepta SororifailFirst of all, let me just say congratulations to Opy for winning his bracket today at the 11th Company tournament!  He’s number one somewhere, right?  Anyway, Episode 41 is full of great stuff for you guys starting with a short recap of the somewhat-recently past Berks doubles tournament for Save Against Fear in our Round-up.  Then, while the news is sparse the “rumors” are pretty interesting.  Followed by Opy and Bill covering the heavily neutered Adepta Sororitas Codex.  We introduce another new section to the podcast called Turn 8 Tips!  For this episode we respond to a listener’s inquiry about how to handle Tau with Eldar.  We also have another installment of Bill’s Gaming Corner, this time covering the Space Hulk Video Game available on Steam.  Lots of stuff and hopefully something for everyone, please enjoy!

Episode 40: Milestone

40k timelineWhy Milestone?  Because it’s episode 40!! …. K ….!!  Ahem, anyway, we’ve made it to our 40th episode and very conveniently it’s just in time for a Space Marine Codex Review, presented by Bill.  But that’s not all the review we have for you, oh no.  We also have Opy and Dave’s mini review of the Iyanden Codex supplement (with a smidge of Black Legion thrown in there for good measure).  Finally, Bill’s back again to review Space Hulk the Card Game: Death Angel from Fantasy Flight games.  The news is back again in this episode and to top it all off, a special, albeit short, Space Marines vs. Orks Battle Report.  The ultimate match up, featuring me attempting to do an English football hooligan-y, Ork-like accent.  Attempting being the key word there as the decision was made last second (actually after last second since I had recorded the deployment phase in a regular voice already) and without preparation.  It starts a bit dodgy and veers into the Australian more than I’d like, but oh well!  Please enjoy the nutty goodness of Episode 40!

Episode 39: Reflections of the Past

Reflections of the Past ImageTime for the split personality, Jekyll & Hyde, edition of the Turn 8 Podcast.  Don’t let that scare you away though, we’ve got a lot of great content to deliver here.  Though perhaps a bit overdue, Andy takes us through the Tau Enclaves codex supplement for a bit of a mini review.  Plus, as a sort of one year plus (plus, plus) anniversary of 6th edition, we thought it was the right time to reflect on what our Hopes and Fears were for sixth and if and how they were addressed.  Last but not least, a very special edition of the Battle Report.  It’s our first sequel!  The dreaded hive fleet Quetzalcoatl returns to face off once again with their old enemy, the Eldar.  If you’d like to hear the first part of this story (or hear it again) take a listen to Episode 26.  So, why is this episode a bit schizophrenic?  Well basically because this episode was recorded at two very different times.  Most of the content was recorded back in July but the battle report recording and most importantly, the news, we’re recorded recently.  Please enjoy!

Oh and I almost forgot, News!  That’s right, This Random Time Period In 40k makes it’s triumphant return in this episode.

Episode 38: Killadelphia

Killadelphia Logo by AndyAnd so we’re back … from outer space … we just walked in and found you there with that sad look upon your face … you should have changed that stupid loc- … ah-hem!!  Sorry.  Good news everyone!  We’re not dead and we’ve got an episode to prove it.  It’s a bit of a lengthy one to boot and also keep in mind that it was actually, technically recorded almost two months ago … so no news again and dates and times may sound a bit … odd.  But anyway, we’ve finally got our coverage of the Killadelphia Open tournament hosted by the Stomping Grounds back in June.  It’s been so long it’ll be like new again!  Also, our long overdue Eldar Codex review, just in time for … Space Marines, cough, but we’ll get to that later.  And of course we also have our famous Battle Report.  I’m working hard on getting back on a schedule here but at the very least it shouldn’t be nearly as long of a wait for episode 39.  Apologies and all that.  Cheers and enjoy!

Oh and I almost forgot, I’m using some new music for the Battle Report this episode to rejuvenate the sound for season 3.  More of that to come too!

Episode 37: Birthday 2 – The Reckoning

Second Birthday!Happy Birthday to us!  Happy Birthday to US!  Of course it’s only about a month late but what can you do?  Yes, that’s right, the latest Episode is finally here and drastically late, for which I personally apologize once again.  Since most of this Episode was actually recorded back in May 2013, I have removed “This Random Time in 40k” as it was laughably out of date.  After all, when it was recorded the Eldar release was still a “rumor”.  Though fear not dear friends as there is still a lot of good stuff to be found.  The roundup covers a Stomping Grounds tournament (not Killadelphia, that will be Episode 38), we finally have our Tau Empire Codex review (with the Eldar review again to come in 38) and a very special Battle Report.  I want to emphasize that too … so I will … a very special Battle Report.  You’ll have to listen to find out why.

All that plus, it wouldn’t be a Turn 8 Birthday celebration (apparently) without Bloopers!  That’s right as is now tradition around these parts we have compiled outtakes and bloopers from all of Season 2′s episodes (21-37) and sprinkled them liberally throughout the episode as our little gift to you.  Please enjoy!

Episode 34: StormRaisins

Tasty StormRaisins!Why StormRaisins?  You’ll have to listen to the end to find out! (or skip ahead I guess … but don’t do that)  Anyway, a bit long with this episode again but it’s packed full of goodies, like … DAEMONS!!!!  Or rather a Chaos Daemons codex review by our very own Dave.  Also, later in the episode we interview Mike Biancone from the Berks Gaming Club about the upcoming BSA4!  (that’s Berks Spring Assault 4 for those not “in the know”)  We get all the details that you probably should already know by now but … um … interview!  Plus our news and rumors section as well as a BSA4 playtest Battle Report, enjoy!

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!
