Upcoming ITC Events

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.

  • More rumors of two upcoming box sets for 40k, one of which is said to be Dark Angels vs. Chaos, the other is said to be Raven Gaurd vs. Tau.
  • Rumor mill is indicating that there will be 3 AdMech books for 40, the Skitarii which are being compared to Scions, a full AdMech codex, and a painting guide.
    • Rumors indicate two more HQs inbound, and 2 more heavies, one a walker the other a more traditional vehicle. We’re assuming the walker is the Dune Strider we’ve been hearing about.
  • More rumors that Fantasy 9th ed will be bringing Round Bases to Fantasy. The rumors say to hang tight and see, and not to freak out yet as it will all make sense….we’ll see.

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

  • We got our copy of Codex: Khorne Daemonkin and while we haven’t been able to read it through yet, the initial thoughts and impressions are positive.

    Excited to see what you guys do with the Twitch Channel!

    And Reece getting Konrad and Sevetar Painted ~_o does that mean we’ll see some Midnight Clad Games in the not-so-distant future?

    The new studio sounds fantastic! You should get a soundboard with “old studio” sounds, for the old timers.

      Lol, right?! haha, queue bus!

      • brent March 30, 2015 5:41 am #

        I was actually going to suggest the same thing! queue bus – queue steel panther.

        ..heh.

        new studio sounds awesome though – little bit of echo, looking forward to the twitch channel, new nightly watching!

    For the timing of your regular livestream broadcasts, probably not an important consideration but UK viewers are 8 hours ahead and Central European viewers are 9. You’d need to stream before or around 12:00 (depending on game time) for people to tune in from here. Maybe one slot per week could be a morning thing to capture more of the international audience. More than happy to watch the uploaded video though!

      Reecius March 29, 2015 7:27 am #

      Yeah, we were talking about that. We’d want to get something Live for Oz, too, which is at the other end of the spectrum!

    Reece,
    The audio quality from the new studio is fantastic!

    • Reecius
      Reecius March 29, 2015 7:28 am #

      Awesome! Yeah, we haven’t even sound proofed it yet, that is just raw space. Glad it is better than it was!

    List for review:
    Khorne daemonkin;
    8 mauler fiends.

    R.I.P Bus on your battlereports… 🙁

    All of fri was spent me convincing Jason the Lord on a juggernaut with budget shield eternal was good.
    But I was thinking put him with bloodcrushers.

    I for one, can’t wait for the new Dark Angels vs Chaos boxed set.

    Maybe the Dark Angels can get another “character” released in plastic, while Sammael is still stuck on his fail-cast jetbike. They also need another unit of terminators, 1 wound each at 60 points, no guns, and once per battle, they auto-pass their armour saves?

    But I’m even more pumped about chaos. Rumour is, it’s a new renegade chapter of imperial marines, the Cerise Murder. They were a previously loyal chapter of marines, who exterminatused one too many human worlds, and got haunted by SpaaAAAaaace ghosts. The ghosts haunted them, until they threw away all their cool imperial toys, and found a bunch of reaper autocannons, and combi-bolters at the local thrift store. The ghosts then chose to live inside their bolter shots, so they get a universal rule for every model in the army, of soul blaze, even the cultists. And because we know you chaos players love synergy, and are so starved for it, one unit of warp talons makes soul blaze tokens strength 5 within 12″ of them! You know you want to deep strike those right into your enemy force, and watch the galaxy burn (on a 4+, followed by a 3+, followed by them failing their armour save, of course).

    I’d like to see/hear more army tactica reviews. The DE/Ork/SW podcast episodes were great!

    Sound quality is fantastic. I think for when you have guests for batreps they should have an entrance and theme music ala WWF. Do you guys have a smoke machine yet? If not, it’s a must. Also, scantily clad girls to tell us what round it is. Give ’em a cosplay theme and we are really cooking.

    I really hope you guys rule only one type of formation in any ‘decurian style’ detachment. I played using the Canoptek Harvest this weekend and that thing is too good to be able to field multiples. Especially with the bonus to reanimation protocols. It’s too much, too crazy. Maybe just a list of formations that can only have one. Ruling across the board only one of a particular type could really hamstring some of these newer codices that are going to have the formation of formations.
