    Episode 67 - Hobby Show - Terrain, Battlefields and Scenery in the 41st Millennium

    Welcome to the Ashes of the Imperium!

    In this episode Steve and Dan dive into what makes a good battlefield in 40k and how to use scenery to help forge a narrative in your games.

    The team chat about three different tables; a T'au Empire Starport, an Ork junkyard and a planet in the midst of a Tyranid infestation.

    What scenery do you wish Games Workshop made? Have you created any interest scenery pieces yourself? Get in touch and share your scenery-related hobby!

    Episode 66 - Hobby Show - How To Forge Your Own Narrative

    Episode 66 - Hobby Show - How To Forge Your Own Narrative

    Welcome to the Ashes of the Imperium!

    In this episode Steve and listener Lee explore how he could shape and expand his new narrative project. With a lifelong love of Space Marines, Lee wants to take advantage of the expanding Crusade rules and create something unique for when lockdown is relaxed enough for him to get gaming with mates again.

    Lots of questions and options are discussed! Some questions are addressed in full, but some are deliberately left unanswered to help create story ideas for future games and even new units. 

    Could this approach help you and your new project? If it does then we'd love to hear from you and the story your telling.

    We are also collecting ideas for a future episode all about TERRAIN! Check out our recent Tweet here to make suggestions!

    Episode 64 - Explorator II - Imperial Fists with Chapter Master Valrak

    Welcome back to Explorator! 

    In this new series, the AOTI40k team will be exploring aspects of the Warhammer 40k universe. The topic will be looked through the following three lenses; Lore, Modelling and Gaming.

    In this episode, Dan is joined by the one and only Chapter Master Valrak! We chat all about the most yellow of all Space Marine Chapters - The Imperial Fists. Dan, naturally, swings the topic over to Black Templars a few times too for good measure. Naturally.

    Let us know what you think of the episode, what aspects of 40k you'd like us to cover in future Explorator episodes, and how we might improve the structure of such episodes too. We're always keen to hear your feedback!

Best 40k podcast.

In a field of some truly great podcasts about Warhammer 40k, this one stands out. Solid discussion, great audio (as of episode 4) and guys you'd love to have at your club.
