    (Previous chatter from last month says first week of January)


    Little to no new models (a la Grey Knights)

    Look for Nerfs to the following:

    Doom Scythes
    Night Scythes
    Tesla will get an overhaul to their rules.
    Deathray will receive a big overhaul to how it targets models.
    Characters remain fundamentally unchanged.

    The Stormlord will recieve a Necron themed orbital bombardment of some type once per game.

    Warlord Traits are good with some granting individual units USRs, while another listed granted an improved version of Reanimation Protocols
  • Skaven Endtimes book to come out before 9th ed Fantasy.

    When are you guys going to get a scholarship for playing 40k?
    Also, you guys need a .edu

    • Reecius December 13, 2014 2:32 pm #

      Haha, maybe one day =)

      .edu, consider it done!

    Warmachine Weekend is nowhere near Florida gents! Lol. Carl (the guy who started it) got a laugh out of that. The event won’t likely move from St Louis as long as he’s alive.

    • Reecius December 14, 2014 10:39 am #

      Lol, my bad! I must be getting soft in the head in my old age, I apologize for the confusion, will correct it in the next episode.

    • Hotsauceman1 December 14, 2014 10:59 am #

      How are you going to get to St. Louis with all the rioting

  3. CaptainBadtouch December 14, 2014 2:31 pm #

    That’s a problem? I see it as an opportunity! It’s also in early November, so the street violence might be calmed…a bit…maybe.

    • Reecius December 14, 2014 4:32 pm #

      Hahaha, now that is playing under pressure! Gotta think straight while avoiding getting shanked with a broken bottle! lol

    Congrats on the EG acquisition!

    The new commanders can only be used (currently) as the special commander. However, I’m hoping they’ll release rules to use them as a generic version, once they’ve been tested as special characters.

    Downside on the caiman commander, is I think the MF for the gun is below 6″, so you don’t get skimmer bonus if you fire it.


    It’s Australian for Spew.

    If there was ever a prank, to beat all pranks, it is Fosters.

    It’s the top selling “Australian” beer in the world, and yet nobody drinks it here. It’s not in the top 10 selling brands, meaning it sells (probably substantially) less than 2% of our beer by volume!

    The whole thing is even more mystifying, because Coopers and even Little Creatures are often available at shops in the US, though in some areas you might have to look a little harder for them.

    Did anyone else notice that Geoff pretty much nailed an Australian accent, when he was pretending to be the Australian broadcaster?

      Geoff – you still don’t want to mess with a wet Koala bear. Koala’s spent most of their time high and drunk on the leaves they eat. So imagine hosing one down! If they jump on your face and freak out, they will mess you up!

      Still, not that scary compared to our spiders, snakes, jellyfish, octopus’, and bogans.
