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 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!

Tervigon / Tyrannofex Assemble!

I first assembled the central core body as pointed out in the instructions, and placed magnets in the front two shoulder sockets.  One thing you want to make sure is that the legs in the middle are wide enough for the Tervigon sack but will still fit on the base itself.  I also put some green stuff with a magnet in the neck socket and on the back of the neck of the Tervigon and Tyrannofex heads.

 

 

 

I then placed two magnets on the bottom hoofs and I let that glue dry overnight.   I then placed 2 magnets on the bottom of the base.  Before the glue is settled on the bottom of the base I slid the model around until it fit nicely.

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 19: Spring (Assault) Is In The Air

What a day, what a day.  Saturday, that is, April the 21st of twenty twelve.  Berks Spring Assault 3 day.  That’s right of course we’re back to talk about all the details revolving around this yearly event that holds a special place in Turn 8’s collective heart.  Opy, Andy and Mike are here to break the day down (with my help of course), the good, the bad and the … rainbows.  And as if that wasn’t enough, Bill finally reveals all the details on the “super secret” project he’s been working on.

Episode 16: End of Days

D-Day approaches!  For me anyway … and really I guess it’s W-Day, but whatever, the point is this is the last episode before yours truly is bound by the shackles of love.  As such there will be a little bit of a longer hiatus between episodes 16 and 17 (expected to be three weeks instead of what would be the usual two) so get your Turn 8 while it’s piping hot!  Today’s episode is back to basics with our usual bag of tricks, no special segments and therefore it’s a little more bite sized for those that enjoy a shorter show.  Also, we finally reveal the details about our Blind Fight, so tune in!
