The Great Crusade podcast is where we tell the story of our latest wargaming crusades, from the lore through the hobby desk to the tabletop. For the first season, our crusade is starting a brand new army in Warhammer 40k. Each host picked an army to build, and each episode we introduce a new unit to that army and talk about it in detail.
Bonus Episode - Death Guard codex overview
Here we are, the moment Bob's been waiting for, the Death Guard codex is here! Actually, it was here a few months ago, but having had some time to play with it and understand it a bit better we decided to have a go at a codex overview. Bob walks us through the good, the bad, and the stinky of the new codex. This is a fantastic codex and hopefully sets the standard that the next book releases will live up to!
The Stinkiest Primarch
In this episode, Bob finally introduces us to the master of his legion: Mortarion. Addison talks about another big, stinky, green unit, the Meganobz. Tom counters their uncouth units with the silent but deadly Sisters of Silence.
In this episode, Tom is inspired to talk about the Culexus assassin after listening to the Horus Heresy novel Nemesis. Bob talks about everyone's nemesis, the Plagueburst Crawler. Addison's unit, the Defkilla WAAAAAUUGHtrike, doesn't know what nemesis means but if it did would certainly love it.
Back to our regularly scheduled program
We are back to our normal episode format this time after some wandering off track. We have three interesting and very different units today. Bob talks about the adorable but oh-so-disgusting Mephitic Blight Haulers. Tom discusses why the Vindicare Assassin is his most hated unit. Addison introduces us to a brand new concept that is unique to the Orks: a melee transport in the Bonebreaka Battlewagon. Enjoy!
Bonus episode - Malifaux part 1 with Craig
In this episode, the gang heads to a completely different universe to talk about Tom and Bob's latest obsession: Malifaux. We look at it from our honest perspective: as 40k players who are dabbling in a whole new game. Malifaux is a skirmish game set in an alternate history filled with magic, steampunk, zombies, cowboys, gremlins, and all kinds of other crazy stuff. To help, Malifaux expert Craig from Third Floor Wars joins us. We hope you enjoy!
40k Roundtable: 9th edition so far
In this episode, we invite some of our friends on to talk about 9th edition 40k. We cover everything from how GW introduced the new edition, rules, missions, game balance, and how we feel about all the Space marine releases. There's some great insight in here beyond our normal perspectives, so we hope you enjoy!
