    Episode 123: New 40K: Matched Play Missions

    Episode 122: New 40K: Terrain

    Episode 122: New 40K: Terrain

    In this episode, we talk about the new rules for terrain in Warhammer 40K. Where many of the updates in this edition are minor changes or additions, these are by far the most extensive set of new rules, which is fitting as they were mostly non-existent in the last edition.

Excellent

Informative and current. Thank you.

Some cringe

The amount of times one of the guys in the show says the word cute is awful. It made me stop the episode about psychic awakening. Like about 8 times in the matter for 60 seconds. Expand your vocabulary please.

A Subscription Auto-Take for Every 40k Player

This is a great podcast that is a unique addition to the 40k pool. Whereas most center on “the meta,” analysis and stats, or crude/comedic hobby banter, this cast tactfully covers all aspects of the hobby, from gaming and tactics, to list-making and the realities of gaming (like what you need to prepare for a 3-day tournament that will drain you physically and mentally). Overall, it focuses on creating a healthy and positive hobby community. And that is really important since social interaction is the foundation of the game. In addition, they also cover tournaments, missions, and “the meta.” Not to mention, the audio quality is great and they’re just nice, inclusive people. If you only subscribe to a handful of 40k podcasts, this one is an auto-take for every list.
