This episode was before the new 40K 8th edition. We were mega excited about it.

5:15 - Hobby Progress

  • Andy talks Heldrakes and his Iron Warriors tournament stuff.

  • Brad discussed the novel Warlord and talks Orruks in AOS.

16:30 - 40K 8th Edition stuff

  • We discuss the Pyschic phase.
  • Thoughts on Smite and character specific pyschic powers.

24:15 - The Charge Phase

  • Command points and breaking charge tactics.
  • How the charge phase affects different armies.  

28:20 - The new background material

  • Thoughts on how the new rift that crosses the Imperium will affect the fluff and the game. 
  • We discuss the Primaris marines before we knew what they were called! 
  • 40K 8th fashion (hair metal). 

36:30 - Community changes

  • We discuss how we think the relationship between AOS and 40K players will develop when the rule sets are similar.
  • We take a positive slant on how we think a shared language (in terms of rules), will allow for a broader conversation between the two parts of the community. 
  • How having a similar ruleset allows for more community feedback and better gaming systems. 

WARNING - contains strong language, swearing and the like. Just saying.
