Back from the holiday break with the first of several already-recorded episodes coming out over the next couple weeks. Joe returns to the show as my guest going over the new Dark Angels book and army box for 40K. Joe's a massive fan of the Dark Angels, so we hope you enjoy it as much as he did. They really play like how the narrative and traits surrounding the chapter's lore. 

As I've been asked, here's what's instore for upcoming episodes: Dawnbringers, Painting, Black library focus from fans and a HUGE surprise… The Old World is certainly getting coverage as I prepare what will likely be a series of guests over the weeks to discuss this crunchy new game. Hint: Although daunting on the rules-front, I’m loving that my favorite setting ever has returned, and even in a previous time period.

2019 comes to an end. We die our annual year in review after a week off for the holidays and both Kenny and Shawn close with our top 3 best of and least of from 2019, as well as some thoughts about 2020. Then the 2nd Combat Phase Warhammer Book Club follows the Siege of Terra: The Lost and the Damned by Guy Haley. Amazing book!
Psst, you can also win some BL books from the prize horde.
Join us next week for our first show of 2020 which will feature oodles of BL author interviews, reviews, tactical advice, book clubs with listeners, interviews with community leaders and organizers, and much much more.

We give some first impressions from the Slaves to Darkness new battletome for AoS then launch into the revival of the Combat Phase Book Club. Obviously, SPOILERS! Though Kenny and Shawn cover this book together we'd like to return the Book Club episodes here and there with fans for the other face of the show that doesn't include an author interview.

Join us next week for author interviews and more. Enjoy!
