We discuss White Dwarfs 34-35, the new released model kits, and even debate the idea of a 'Symphony of Pain' game tactica (spoiler - not going to happen).

Feel free to check us out at http://www.thedarkcity.net/ for more Dark Eldar discussion.

Correction: The two Voidraven makers were Gobsmakked and Black Death, not Creeping Death as said in the podcast. Apologies for that!

  We are very excited to present our interview with Black Library author Gav Thorpe discussing his latest book Jain Zar! Join Alex, Thor, and Brian as we talk briefly about our first awkward stumblings and initial 8th edition impressions in the first segment before getting into our interview.  We discuss Aeldari lore with Gav Thorpe, the nature of the Phoenix Lords, as well as discuss his time with Games Workshop as a codex writer in the second second segment. We wrap up the interview  in the third segment with our discussion of Thorpe's latest work Jain Zar.

Please visit and subscribe to Gav's blog: https://gavthorpe.co.uk/

And definitely buy Jain Zar if you have not already! http://www.blacklibrary.com/new-titles/featured/the-storm-of-silence-ebook.html

A huge thanks to Gavin Thorpe and listener Robert Lamborn for helping this interview to happen. We do apologize for the release date delay due to some technical issues with the recording. There are some odd audio spikes and sync problems in the first segment that were unavoidable. Thank you all for understanding.

Episode 44: Drukhari Codex Preview and Review Part 1

Podcast cover

We're finally free! After a technical delay we finally can preview the new Drukhari codex! We briefly discuss our playtesting of the codex, go through a "rip the band aid off" segment to say farewell to a couple of beloved units/parts of the codex that we aren't hot on, go over an overview of how the army is different, Obsessions, and the context of points changes!

This codex is massive and will take a while to get through. Rather than try to "outscoop" other shows with information we will be approaching the codex sub-faction by sub-faction before we even break into tactics. There is a ton of changes to digest, we hope to help you through the process while you help us find new tips and tricks that we missed. Dark Eldar fans are in for great times ahead and we couldn't be more excited for the community.
