Episode 46: Hellboats

Hellboat Desktop BackgroundThis is it folks, the moment we’ve all been waiting for since Warhammer 40k sixth edition came out.  We’re finally airing our Battle Report Contest winner!  Oh, also seventh edition is imminent.  Little things.  Anyway, as promised we finally have Brandon Field’s winning entry into our Battle Report Contest recorded and ready for your ear holes!  In addition, this is also our first episode since our relaunch with an actual Battle Report in it, so it’s doubly special.  We also have our usual round-up and news and our very own Andy brings you his review of the Visions of Heresy image book available from Games Workshop.  We close out this show with our, now standard, initial look and Hopes and Fears for the soon to be released, seventh edition!  Some small caveats before we begin though: we recorded this episode on Monday the 12th of May but due to my ever-present work related issues, I was unable to get it out the door until now.  As such, a few of the things we mention have been clarified by the White Dwarf.  This was also before the rumor of a tournament supplement book was out there so I said it first!  Neener!  Anyway, please enjoy and be sure to check below for our Facebook link to keep up with the latest 40k and Turn 8 news!

Episode 44: Phoenix

As mentioned in the post below folks … We. Are. Back!  Tune in to find out what the heck has been going on with the show, why we’ve been away for so long and how some things are going to change going forward.  As part of that you get your news fix for this episode, Opy brings us a rather short Codex Review of the Imperial Knights (because there are only 6 pages of rules) but that’s it! … New structure and schedule means no Battle Report for this episode … the first time we’ve ever done an episode without one.  What’s that all about?  Tune in to find out.

Episode 42: The Opy Show

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 36: Aftermath

Episode 36 Title ImageWell it took a bit longer than I’d hoped but it’s finally here, our coverage of the Berks Spring Assault 4 tournament held on April 13th!  But wait, there’s more!  We also have our round up detailing some info about our recently revealed Super Secret Project.  Plus, of course our (slightly old) news and rumors section (sorry for the delay) and this episodes very special, Berks flavored Battle Report, featuring Bill’s Blue Bloods (A.K.A Blood Angels).  And as content packed as all that is, we’re not done yet.  In this episode we have our first interview with Matt Cerino from Stomping Grounds Games & Hobbies!  He joins us to talk about the upcoming Killadelphia GT in June.  So much to talk about it just took a little longer to release and yet still only landed as our 6th longest episode ever.  Enjoy!

Episode 35: Fish Sticks

Fish Sticks Episode ImageBOOM!  Just like that we’ve got another episode for your enjoyment.  The last podcast before BSA4 (Berks Spring Assault 4) and we snuck it in just in time.  As such this particular episode is a bit shorter but since the last episode only aired a week ago and it was rather on the longer side I feel that it works out well.  The meat of this show is of course, fish!  The Tau are out now (though still pending as of recording) and we cover a lot of what we think about the new models in This Random Time Period In 40k.  We also have a “last hurrah” Battle Report with old Codex Tau and as a special bonus, it’s also a Berks test game for our Space Wolves player.  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!
