    The Leagues of Votann

    The Leagues of Votann

    What started out as an April Fool’s joke is now in our hands – the new Leagues of Votann codex and army box are here! We delve into this new faction, discuss their lore, and pick out ten (or is it eleven) things you need to know about this army! From their grudge-based special rules to their slow-and-steady playstyle to their wild new weaponry, we dig in and forge ahead with Dennis’s new favorite force. Also, news and new releases, your listener mail, hobby progress, and a Morale Phase about getting back to what we love. Don’t sell yourself short and miss this one!

    The One-Sentence Fix for 40K?

    The One-Sentence Fix for 40K?

    In episode 258, we asked the question: Has Warhammer 40K become too complex? In this episode, we discuss an editorial on Frontline Gaming that suggests fixing the complexity and balance issues of 9th Edition with one simple fix. One single errata, this article claims, could correct the flaws of 40K and bring in a new, better age of the game. We take a look at that suggestion and give our thoughts, as well as some alternatives. Also, news and new releases (including a review of some brand-new models), the return of your listener mail, our hobby progress, Dennis’s solo tournament update, and the Morale phase!

    We’re near the end of the 9th Edition codex cycle, and the Eye of Terror finally gets its due – the new Chaos Space Marines codex is here! How do we feel about this new book? Is it everything we’d hoped? Are marks useful? Is one extra wound enough? Will the galaxy burn? Are cultists viable? And what about the World Eaters and their White Dwarf codex? We talk about all this and more as we look at 10 Things You Need to Know About the Chaos Space Marines Codex. Also, news and new releases, a hobby progress section with a new project from Dennis, and a strange new Morale Phase!

Great

This is my favorite 40k podcast. They tend to stay on the topic of 40k, and are mostly PG. I listen in an office, and many podcasts will offend people. These guys are safe. I find them very entertaining!
Rob played a game with my son, when he was learning how to play, so he’s still proud he learned to play against a 40k celebrity!

Few guys at a table talking 40k

This podcast has the feel of a few guys sitting around talking 40k. Less professional than some 40k podcasts but nothing wrong with that. I find the lost reviews to be tedious and uninteresting generally fast forward through those parts. Sound quality could use improvement at times. Otherwise very enjoyable and I enjoy a similar take on the hobby that myself and similar members of the community share!

Thank you!
