Show Notes



  • Games Workshop Pre-Release, Hoooooooooo!!! It’s game time, baby, let the pre-order specials commence!
  1. Release details in the podcast!

  • New Adeptus Mechanicus models out from Forge World and they look super cool, too.
  • Maki lauches their Kickstater for their modular terrain and it is seriously chugging right along. They’ve almost hit their $20,000 goal and they’re only a few days in.
  • Robotech Kickstarter about to wrap up, just about at 1.25 million. Wow.
  • Kromlech releases a new Plague Reaper mini, looks pretty cool.
  • Mantic Games is releasing a Mars Attacks! miniatures game. Looks interesting at the least.


  • The Forge World Horus Heresy crew wants to incorporate all of the Eldar Phoenix Lords into the storyline and show how each of them interacted with and was affected by the events of the Heresy. Hopefully this means Forge World will be making Primarch quality sculpts of each Phoenix Lord.

Rant Session

  • Warmachine vs. 40K

List Review

It’s SW/DA at 1850, but super easy to tone down to 1750 or up to 2k.


Rune Priest

2x Troops

8 Grey Hunters


3x Fast attack

4 Hyperios Platforms

3x Heavy Support

5 Longfangs with missiles


Level 2 Librarian


Scout Squad

-Cloaks and Snipers

-Missile Launcher

Fast Attack

5 Ravenwing Support Squadron

-Typhoon Missiles


5x Missile Devastators

I feel this is a good all comers list.  The theory is that I missile whatever is deployed opposite of me. I think this army is good in Hammer and Anvil.

Just so you guys know, this army has 44 missile shots a turn, most of them can or will be twin linked.  It has more than twice as many missile shots as it has bolter shots.  I’m only afraid of LR spam, but I will glance atleast one down a turn.  It needs spotlights.

Hope you fools like this army, kisses.

Heres some numbers:

All the Hyperios Plats will get 1 glance on a LR, the speeders will get 1 glance, and with the reroll power, the missile devs will get 3 glances.  For Frankie’s sake that is 5 glances total.  assuming 5+ cover, that is 1 dead LR a turn.  If the dice go hot (and with that many missile shots that is a decent chance) I can potentialy do more than that.  Against termies, assuming im doing krak, thats 4.6 dead termis a turn just from the missiles.  That might not be enough if im facing DW and the DS ontop of me, but I think I can screen with the grey hunters, or the speeders if I really am desperate.

I also forgot to mention that the Lib and RP will be rolling diviniation (of course)

    So if your under a landing pad ordnance can’t shoot you?

    What happens if I stick my ordnance thing under the landing pad can it still fire?

      I’d have to double check, but I think they can shoot through a roof outgoing but not incoming.

        The hitting of the highest level for barrage is under the ruins rules not under the buildings section. On top of that the sky shield terrain type is “unique” and it explains that it is area terrain on top. I dont see any reason why you wouldnt be able to indirectly fire at a unit underneath the shy shield.

      Oh, and it’s Barrage weapons Alan, not just ordnance.

    So does that wraith knight come with a bottle of lube and box of tissues because I am gonna need something to dry my tears after G.W. commits great acts of sodomy upon my wallet. Does anyone else feel like they have Stockholm syndrome the way G.W. hold our wallets for ransom…..screw it I need 3 wraith knights.

      Haha, right? It is pretty outrageous, but our rep did say that the Wraithknight is twice as big as a Riptide.

      • dr.insanotron May 21, 2013 3:26 pm

        Does any one else get the feeling that it might end up being a APOC unit. The size of a Titan and the price of a Baneblade?

          I don’t think so. That is too big of a risk IMO, and they used it in the battle report. I think it is going to be normal 40K. I hope so, anyway.

    Also If they can produce this monster of a model why no warhounds,thunder hawks and the other goodies seems like everyone wants them and I would gladly spend my kids collage fund on them he’s a smart kid there are scholarships for him.

      Hahaha, right?! Dad wants a Wraithknight son, you understand. No get out there and be somebody!

    A tear came to my eye upon hearing the price of the Wraithknight.

    Won’t stop me though, that thing is just too awesome. 🙂

    Hemlock Wraithfighter looks awesome too, I will need one of those…

      Bear in mind, it is HUGE!

  6. Stave Stiff May 21, 2013 6:48 pm

    I did actualy think about a Skyshield, at 2k, I can probably take one. I was also thinking about putting double Heavy Bolters on my speeders and allow it to take on termies and hordes, not sure tho.

    I wish I had infinite money to build that army 🙁

    • Stave Stiff May 21, 2013 6:49 pm
