  • Las Vegas Open! We’re over half full, so do not wait to get those tickets! Check out some of the awesome pictures of the Raffle Army that our painters are working on! This army with a custom Mr. Dandy Defense Line, Secret Weapon Tau Ceti Bases and a TableWar custom case! Boom! It will be exciting to see who gets this army at the LVO!

  • GW releases the digital supplement Sentinels of Terra for their eBooks. Check it out if you want to get some new fluff and rules on the Imperial Fists. So far reading it, we think it is pretty cool! They also released some new digital products about units and characters such as Huron Blackheart. Check out GW’s site if you want to learn more about those goodies.
  • GW Releases Triumph and Treachery for Fantasy, sounds cool, a way to play multi-player games of Fantasy. Check out GW’s site for more details.
  • Faeit 212 posted an article about machines that can scan any object and then make a miniature of them. So, you could scan yourself, digitally add some cool stuff to it to make you awesome, and have a miniature of yourself! Sweeet!
  • Joe Drache sent us some pics of his newest Warlord Titan, the Dies Irae, and it is HUGE! Expect to see it at the BAO or LVO, possibly both in the Apoc events!



  • Adam from the Dice Abide wants to team up with Frontline Gaming to host a Fantasy Tournament in a month or two. That sounds like a lot of fun to us!
  • We want to thank Gotaboy for making us some custom artwork for our armies based on their color schemes/histories and names. He’s hooked up a lot of people in the community and he’s really good, has fast turn times and his rates are very reasonable. Check him out over at Full of Monkey and check out all of the cool art he’s done for us!

  • Thon, a company new to us, is showing off a 3D render of an awesome new model they’re looking to produce. Check out some more of the models and renders, they’re really nice looking. Their site is a bit confusing, I can’t tell what’s going on but the art is something else.

Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  • Rumors that new Fortifications may be in design limbo in terms of the new racial specific kits.
  • Rumors that the Red Hunters Forge World Chapter of Space Marines that are able to ally as Battle Brothers with either Grey Knights or Sisters of Battle so long as an Inquisitor is present were written looking forward. The implication is that Witch Hunters Inquisitors will be back in some for or other in the future!
  • Rumors that Ferrus Manus and Iron Hands 30K HH goodies will be up for pre-order in November. Cool!

Rant Session

  • Good discussions on Comp over at Frontline. Swedes use a system that actually sounds playable if one were so inclined to play with comp.

Tactics Corner

  • Tiber on Frontline pointed out that if you attach a non White Scars character to a unit of White Scars his cover save won’t be the same as the others and you can focus fire him to death!

Rules Lawyer

  • Justin S. asks, if multiple Condemnor Boltguns hit a unit with  multiple psykers, how do you resolve the hits? All randomly or one takes them all till dead?

    Why does every single Scribor base ever have a random head on it?

  2. KingCro October 29, 2013 7:36 am #

    • Reecius October 29, 2013 10:22 am #

    I am weeping with laughter at the “Forging the Narrative” in the context of challenges. I’m a Tyranid player… I have some bowel loosening to do…

    • Reecius October 29, 2013 10:22 am #

      Hahahahaha, right? I was dying at that description.

  4. ScouseMatt October 29, 2013 10:32 am #

    Haha, that forging the narrative bit cracked me up. As a Brit, I do love Frankies “British” accent. I’ve also decided I’m going to start beginning every sentence with “by jove”.

    • ScouseMatt October 29, 2013 10:35 am #

      e.g. “By jove, the Black Library have just announced an Inquisition Codex! How spiffing!”

      • Reecius October 29, 2013 10:54 am #

        Hahahaha, I know right? Frankie combines all commonwealth accents into one!

    Woot GW digital release has confirmed the witch hunters codex, Sisters with inquisitors allied to space marines here we go.

    • Reecius October 29, 2013 1:37 pm #

      It says that the Inquisitors codex will be able to ally with ALL Imperial armies, hmmmm……this could be interesting!
