After a little preamble we talk about list design. We talk about how to detach yourself from the things you want to have in the list and boil it down to the things you need. We also talk about some upcoming events and tournaments.
We spend the first part of the show talking about how we don’t mind – and also like, the idea of Warhammer not always having to be so serious and Grimdark. Its not for everyone, but it doesn’t have to be. We close out the show talking about how to get back in a game…
I’m joined by two legendary Warbosses this week, Val Heffelfinger and Marc Parker to talk about how they will be building their Codex Ork Lists. I try to nail them down on Choppa vs Shoota and try to convince them that Shokk Attack Guns are great.. They get me back on the right track.
We explore more culture crafting topics on the episode this week and state that Organizers are more empowered than ever to try new things at their events. Enthusiasm for matched play is at an all time high people WANT to come to events.. Let’s make it the best we can.
We cover a range of topics in this episode. We revisit the Adeptus Custodes book and cover some of the Relics and Stratagems we didn’t before then we get to a difficult topic currently making the rounds about Tournaments. Then we shift gears to cover the Eldar menace!
Planning for big tournaments is hard. That’s an over simplification. Between the rules, differences in format and regional play styles it’s a lot to think about.
We do a little hype for Warzone: Atlanta this episode. We get to talk about two great sponsors for this event before getting it our 40k chats. As we see more codexes come out we discuss what you’ll lose if you decide to blend factions.
This is another double sized episode with an exclusive interview with Cool Mini Or Not about their Song of Ice and Fire wargame live on Kickstarter right now. We also talk about some up coming events and Finishing Moves is back!
Robin Cruddace joins us again to talk about Warhammer 40k 8th edition all how it all started to take shape for Games Workshop. This has been in the works for a LONG time.
This has been a crazy week for 40k. We had a TON of rules discussion directly from the Warhammer Community team. All this week I’ve been putting reaction videos on the FTN YouTube page. Please check them out if you haven’t already.
