Ahem *taps mic*.... THOUSAND SONS CODEX!

We are stupidly excited and race against time (you'd think we'd learn by now but Ahriman's stubborness rubs off on us) to pump out a Codex: army review for those chomping at the bit. This is Kenny's current--and favorite--40K army and Shawn loves them too. 

So here is part 1: the mechanics, rules, stratagems. As this goes up pre-orders have already begun in the east and you can and should start pre-ordering your Sons (and Tzaangors) of Magnus. We will be back again next week for the remainder of the review, which will cover the lore and art/design of the book...plus a few games played using this new book.

Rise up into the lower enumerations and enjoy the show!

We talk a load of news which includes some very exciting releases but lay out our plan of monthly giveaways (and more!) to celebrate Black Library's 20th anniversary this year, plus their open submission window is even more fun this year! Our games played lean into our main topic tonight which is about our Horus Heresy campaign using the 8th ed player-made rules. Sorry Perturabo, we ran out of time and will stroke your ego next week. :)
