Combat Phase

We're back!!!

Thanks so much for your patience. The computer is fixed but unfortunately several interviews were lost. We're rerecording them and then some are delayed again until next week. But have no fear, lots of good stuff coming up and in this episode! Started a tad loud but the Tech Gnoblars figured it out.

We draw 16 winners from the prize pile of BL books so if you hear your name contact us directly to confirm your mailing address and preferred genre of book to receive.

Join us next week for the start of the BL Book Club, kicking off with The Solar War. Plus, so many interviews to play in the coming months.

Enjoy!

In this delayed episode we recount Holy Wars and prep for our own AoS 1-day narrative event. We were delayed due to travel and crunch time for painting then unfortunately had to reschedule all interviews for this episode and now we've all got the most heinous Nurgle's Rot going around so we wanted to put something out. 

 

Once our voices, minds and organs are back where they should be we'll be back with loads of interviews and coverage of the latest AoS, 40K, Black Library and other GW releases. Check out Holy Wars and Holy Havok at the link below.
