The Combat Phase is the only phase that matters

A great podcast hosted by great people. Do yourself a favor and listen.

Invaluable podcast for lore (40K, 30K, AoS)

As someone who doesn’t play 40K/30K or know much about the lore, Combat Phase’s in-depth conversations with Black Library authors has been an invaluable way to learn more about the game’s universe. Kenny is usually the one conducting the interviews. His positive disposition always seems to make it easy for the authors to open up. I’m also a huge fan of their Age of Sigmar coverage, such as their recent chat with Nick Horth about his City of Secrets novel.
