  • Hero Forge’s KickStarter is in its final two days and they blew their goal away. They are making custom Minis for RPG or Fantasy minis games! Very cool. You design your mini on their software and pay to have them print it for you.
  • Forge World has released all kinds of new awesome stuff! Iron Hands heads and torsos, Deathguard Heads and Torsos, and Iron Warriors should pads. Wow, these look awesome! They have also release Graviton Guns which is sweet for people looking to get some Grav Weapons.

  • Warsenal releases some very cool 28mm pallets for those who really want to bring their terrain to the next level!



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 of Knights coming out soon? The last White Dwarf hints at something cool coming out in the on Feb 22, so hopefully something awesome is coming our way! We’re seeing pics and such floating around the net and rules. We do not know when they are coming out or if, but if you see them go up on GW’s site, we can take pre-orders that same pico-second! The rules look OK.
  • IG rumored to have Plastic Stormtroopers, Ogryn which will now be called Bullgryns, Commissar Squads, which sound really cool as well as a larger transport? Maybe something like the FW Gorgon? Also, the plastic kits listed are rumored to be able to ally with other Imperial Armies as auxiliaries.
  • Rumors of FW being sold in GW stores again, soon, which would be cool and definitely bring customers into the GW stores. Hopefully we can sell it, too.
  • Rumors of Legion of the Damned and Genestealer Cult Supplements coming out, too which is cool. That would be a lot of fun.

List Review

Hey Guys, i Just started a new Eldar Army and here is my list for review

Farseer with SInging Spear –

Warlock –

10 Dire Avengers with Exarch and Wave Serpent with Scatter Laser and

Shuriken cannon and holo Field –

10 Dire Avengers with Exarch and Wave Serpent with Scatter Laser and

Shuriken cannon and holo Field –

10 Dire Avengers with Exarch and Wave Serpent with Scatter Laser and

Shuriken cannon and holo Field –

20 Guardian Defenders with 2x Bright Lances –

Crimson Hunter with Exarch –

Wraithknight with D-Cannons

Aegis Line with Quad Gun –

Total 1750

My Plan is to Put the Warlock with the Guardians behind the Aegis line to control backfield objectives and use the warlock to give the unit shrouded and give it a 2+ cover save. My Local Meta is made up of Mostly marines, chaos and necrons, and almost no tau so I believe the 2+ cover will be really good. Thanks guys. and congrats on the the LVO going so well, i am fairy new to 40K and hope to be able to make it next year, and possible to the BAO this year as my first GT.

  2. novaStar February 16, 2014 8:04 pm

    wasnt kup telling grimlock about the petro rapids?

    • Paul Corneluis February 17, 2014 5:55 pm

      That’s right. While I love Transformers the Movie, we weren’t being that clever. Obi delved into some ancient Warhammer lore for our team name. Still working on the bowling shirts!

        I heard Obi has acquired a new paint master to teach him the mysteries of high level competitive painting. Israel has a target on his back!

    You guys can mail me my Best Grey Knight invitational ticket to go with my plaque anytime 😉

    But seriously, a best-of tournament would be awesome.

    Funny story while I was coming back from the LVO – we saw Mike Tyson in the airports.. It was refreshing to see someone more famous than Reece, Frankie and goatboy. :p

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 17, 2014 10:55 am

      No way, you saw Tyson!! Ah, that’s awesome!

      • nimrod451 February 18, 2014 2:04 am

        yeah, was really weird… everyone in the terminal looked at one another and was like “Was that Tyson…”

        he was all alone just walking through the terminal with his lil suitcase..heh..

        was a neat cap to the great weekend!

          That is so awesome! I saw the Hoff in the airport once waiting for his bags across from me. Same thing, he was by himself, just sitting there, and no one bugged him.

    Be interesting to see if theres anything GW can do in the new edition to counter all the death-stars (or 40k Godmode as I like to call it). I can see them putting in a ‘second roll is always a 4+’ style rule and i don’t think anyone would have complaints.

    They could make changes to how battle bros HQ’s work to try and stop the USR sharing shenanigans but it’d be hard to do it without ruining it for the fluff player who just wants to stick Grimaldus in a blob of 50 guard cos they’ve just read Helsreach.

    Regarding the question about the Screamer attack when turbo boosting over enemy models, it states under the Screamer entry on p41 that its D3 S4 AP- hits per Screamer model that made it over the enemy unit. 9-)

    • White925 February 17, 2014 5:26 pm

      Thank you for clarifying that

  7. Oadius the ass February 17, 2014 9:00 am

    yeah so you roll ONE D3 and apply it to every model that went over an enemy unit. Same as flamers when you overwatch.

  8. Oadius February 17, 2014 9:05 am

    Ever seen an ork player roll a D3 for every lootah that shoots? nope. it’s the same thing D.D.

    • anonymou5 February 17, 2014 10:00 pm

      I actually have seen that at an RTT within the last month. Guy was such a d-bag and I was rolling his face so hard anyway I just let it go.

      When I enfeebled and smash attacked his Warboss he literally threw his model. It was redonk.

    Glad to see you have a few mats on the site. I might order one. Maybe it will get here before the one I kickstarted that’s UPS # still shows no movement on.

    • White925 February 17, 2014 5:28 pm

      You should get some movement on it tomorrow if it hasnt moved yet.

    • Reecius
      Reecius February 17, 2014 9:57 pm

      The labels have been printed for the 1,300 mats that we got from the KickStarter, but, we need a huge truck to come and get them, can’t just drop them off at the local UPS. A lot of people already have their mats, all Domestic orders will be moving tomorrow.
