Combat Phase

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 chat a spot of news then straight into our review of the new codex and models of Adeptus Custodes. 

See you in 2 days for...well, the next codex!

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. :)

Watch for posts to win free products from Black Library on our Facebook page and check out some other baller resources we mention during the show.

Enjoy!

*People Make Mistakes With Chainsaws*

It's a lot of news this week, including our annual batch of Black Friday sales around the world for miniwargaming hobby (and there's a LOT MORE this year!) Dave Taylor will be giving a seminar at Adepticon on crowd funding for businesses so he leads us on a conversation about that, while we do talk about Adepticon which opened registration Friday and gets a little attention itself. 

 

We also chat first impressions on Necromunda from observations and review/store copies of the game. You can pick up your copy of Necromunda as this episode goes live!

 

Enjoy!
