Why Milestone?  Because it’s episode 40!! …. K ….!!  Ahem, anyway, we’ve made it to our 40th episode and very conveniently it’s just in time for a Space Marine Codex Review, presented by Bill.  But that’s not all the review we have for you, oh no.  We also have Opy and Dave’s mini review of the Iyanden Codex supplement (with a smidge of Black Legion thrown in there for good measure).  Finally, Bill’s back again to review Space Hulk the Card Game: Death Angel from Fantasy Flight games.  The news is back again in this episode and to top it all off, a special, albeit short, Space Marines vs. Orks Battle Report.  The ultimate match up, featuring me attempting to do an English football hooligan-y, Ork-like accent.  Attempting being the key word there as the decision was made last second (actually after last second since I had recorded the deployment phase in a regular voice already) and without preparation.  It starts a bit dodgy and veers into the Australian more than I’d like, but oh well!  Please enjoy the nutty goodness of Episode 40!

And so we’re back … from outer space … we just walked in and found you there with that sad look upon your face … you should have changed that stupid loc- … ah-hem!!  Sorry.  Good news everyone!  We’re not dead and we’ve got an episode to prove it.  It’s a bit of a lengthy one to boot and also keep in mind that it was actually, technically recorded almost two months ago … so no news again and dates and times may sound a bit … odd.  But anyway, we’ve finally got our coverage of the Killadelphia Open tournament hosted by the Stomping Grounds back in June.  It’s been so long it’ll be like new again!  Also, our long overdue Eldar Codex review, just in time for … Space Marines, cough, but we’ll get to that later.  And of course we also have our famous Battle Report.  I’m working hard on getting back on a schedule here but at the very least it shouldn’t be nearly as long of a wait for episode 39.  Apologies and all that.  Cheers and enjoy!

Oh and I almost forgot, I’m using some new music for the Battle Report this episode to rejuvenate the sound for season 3.  More of that to come too!

Happy Birthday to us!  Happy Birthday to US!  Of course it’s only about a month late but what can you do?  Yes, that’s right, the latest Episode is finally here and drastically late, for which I personally apologize once again.  Since most of this Episode was actually recorded back in May 2013, I have removed “This Random Time in 40k” as it was laughably out of date.  After all, when it was recorded the Eldar release was still a “rumor”.  Though fear not dear friends as there is still a lot of good stuff to be found.  The roundup covers a Stomping Grounds tournament (not Killadelphia, that will be Episode 38), we finally have our Tau Empire Codex review (with the Eldar review again to come in 38) and a very special Battle Report.  I want to emphasize that too … so I will … a very special Battle Report.  You’ll have to listen to find out why.

All that plus, it wouldn’t be a Turn 8 Birthday celebration (apparently) without Bloopers!  That’s right as is now tradition around these parts we have compiled outtakes and bloopers from all of Season 2’s episodes (21-37) and sprinkled them liberally throughout the episode as our little gift to you.  Please enjoy!

Happy belated New Years everyone!  And happy belated episode as well but hopefully this episode should be worth the wait.  We’ve got some news, we talk about the Dark Angels and some rumors but I do have to mention that due to the late airing of this episode (entirely my fault by the way) some of the content is already a bit out of date.  Just keep in mind while listening that we recorded this before Dark Angels had officially arrived and all will be right with the world.  Additionally in this episode we close out the Campaign Trail as Opy, Andy and Dave participated in the epic battle to end all.  Details inside!  We also have another Q&A session so please enjoy!

After one major and then one minor delay, we finally bring you our Chaos Space Marines codex review!!  Well, part one of it anyway, there’s a lot to cover after all.  In this episode Opy takes us through the Chaos specific Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers, and the Armory.  We also cover quite a bit of news and bring you another Chaos related rule.  Who doesn’t love a good challenge?  Next episode we’ll conclude the codex review as we cover the units.  I would also like to apologize for the lateness of this particular show.  As some of you know we delayed our recording due to hurricane Sandy which, if you don’t know for some reason, recently ravaged the east coast of the U.S., particularly New Jersey.  Most of us here lost power for at least a bit (or a lot more) but were otherwise OK, our trees however …   In addition to that delay, work and other personal things on my end delayed the debut of this episode from Friday till now, but anyway, we’re back with more quality podcast programing for your ear holes, enjoy!

This is it folks, the moment we’ve all been waiting for since Warhammer 40k sixth edition came out.  We’re finally airing our Battle Report Contest winner!  Oh, also seventh edition is imminent.  Little things.  Anyway, as promised we finally have Brandon Field’s winning entry into our Battle Report Contest recorded and ready for your ear holes!  In addition, this is also our first episode since our relaunch with an actual Battle Report in it, so it’s doubly special.  We also have our usual round-up and news and our very own Andy brings you his review of the Visions of Heresy image book available from Games Workshop.  We close out this show with our, now standard, initial look and Hopes and Fears for the soon to be released, seventh edition!  Some small caveats before we begin though: we recorded this episode on Monday the 12th of May but due to my ever-present work related issues, I was unable to get it out the door until now.  As such, a few of the things we mention have been clarified by the White Dwarf.  This was also before the rumor of a tournament supplement book was out there so I said it first!  Neener!  Anyway, please enjoy and be sure to check below for our Facebook link to keep up with the latest 40k and Turn 8 news!

Hey kids!  It’s Andy and Dave!  Finally running back at full steam with the full crew we bring you another episode.  Opy and Dave talk about their recent tournament experiences.  For Opy it was the DeLaWarr open in the red brick bedecked town of Newark Delaware and for Dave it was Adepticon!  While the rumors were a bit light for this episode (everything huge you’ve just heard about will be in the next episode) the news had a few … questionable items to deal with.  Finally Opy and Dave bring you their review of the Crimson Slaughter supplemental Codex for Chaos Space Marines.  Also Bill and Andy are here …

As mentioned in the post below folks … We. Are. Back!  Tune in to find out what the heck has been going on with the show, why we’ve been away for so long and how some things are going to change going forward.  As part of that you get your news fix for this episode, Opy brings us a rather short Codex Review of the Imperial Knights (because there are only 6 pages of rules) but that’s it! … New structure and schedule means no Battle Report for this episode … the first time we’ve ever done an episode without one.  What’s that all about?  Tune in to find out.

First of all, let me just say congratulations to Opy for winning his bracket today at the 11th Company tournament!  He’s number one somewhere, right?  Anyway, Episode 41 is full of great stuff for you guys starting with a short recap of the somewhat-recently past Berks doubles tournament for Save Against Fear in our Round-up.  Then, while the news is sparse the “rumors” are pretty interesting.  Followed by Opy and Bill covering the heavily neutered Adepta Sororitas Codex.  We introduce another new section to the podcast called Turn 8 Tips!  For this episode we respond to a listener’s inquiry about how to handle Tau with Eldar.  We also have another installment of Bill’s Gaming Corner, this time covering the Space Hulk Video Game available on Steam.  Lots of stuff and hopefully something for everyone, please enjoy!
