Rank #17: Episode 62: Get Your Army Painted
In this episode, we talk about how to quickly get your army up to the minimum 3-color standard that most events have set. The purpose is not to shame you into painting, or push an unrealistic standard; the purpose is to show you how to do this quickly and efficiently. We discuss the techniques that we use to get armies ready for events. If you struggle to get your models painted, or even if you hate painting, then this episode is for you.

Rank #18: Episode 94: Overlooked Units in 40K
In this episode, we discuss overlooked units in 40K. These may be units that you don’t see or hear about very often or that have been dismissed online because they are not the most efficient choices. Whatever the case, we set out to come up with units that we think can serve a useful role in your army list. They may not be the best, but they are better than you think and if you love the model sometimes that is what counts.
The idea for this segment came from our Discord chat. We are as guilty as anyone when we do our codex reviews of talking up the most efficient units and ignoring those that can still be useful. Mostly this is because we want to highlight the strengths of the army and not read every entry to you. But this show is our chance to go back and pick out those units that should be considered.
