Rank #1: 17 – First Strike with first timers

Podcast cover

Playing through the new 8th-edition starter set with a couple of novices.

I invited two of my buddies from work to spend an evening trying out a Warhammer 40K 8th-edition starter set, called First Strike. With an attractive price point ($40 in the US) and a handful of models on each side, it makes entry almost a no-brainer. Take a listen as we chat before and after playing through the missions. This episode is about twice as long as normal, but I think you’ll find it’s a pretty quick listen anyway.

It’s finally here. #New40K

A month has gone by and I’ve put some thought into the format of the show, on top of just being really busy in general. A month since our last episode, but somehow I’m still thinking about 8th Edition 40K. I wanted to do another show based on the full reveal of the Dark Imperium boxed set and novel. Take a listen to the new, spiced up and more interactive format of the show. I may make some further changes, but let’s see how these ones go first. If you want to hear the new theme music in the intro, go take a listen to the full file in this post.

Part 1 of my conversation with Naf Naf about his Dark Eldar.

Nathaniel, or Naf Naf, has probably the single most unique army I’ve ever seen for Warhammer 40K. His unique take on the Carnival of Pain simply must be seen to be believed. I dive in deep with him about his inspiration and process, and some of his general thoughts on gaming and hobby as well. You don’t want to miss this one.

A different take on 8th Edition Warhammer 40K.

There’s a lot of coverage about the ‘new Warhammer 40K’ and I wanted to share how I think about it. I like to think the updates and changes are like a film director and editor, making tweaks that alter the way we see battles unfolding in our mind’s eye.
