  • Mantic’s Dungeon Saga looks like it will be a ton of fun!


  • Puppetswar releases some new should pads, the Airstrike Calvary Pads.


  • Forgeworld says it is OK to use MKIV and V Dreads with 4 attacks so long as your local area is OK with that and that they are working on an FAQ to update their older books, which is great news.
  • Hawk to release more famous commanders for DzC, and says more models on the way, as the reconquest unfolds. Cool!


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.

  • Rumors indicate that there will be several weeks of Fantasy releases for Age of Sigmar, so 40k will get a chance to get caught up on everything and settle a bit.
  • Age of Sigmar sounds pretty bad ass, actually. Old miniatures will still be viable, but all new minis will come on round bases.
    • Rebranding the game. Will have new rules for all the old minis. The starter box has extremely simple rules, only 4 pages long aimed at getting new players excited about Fantasy and make it easy to become immersed.
    • Custom army cases for the release, one for chaos, the other for Sigmar, plus some gold spray, too.
    • The “good guys” are called Stormcast Eternals, and the chaos forces are Warriors of Khorne.
    • Rumored to be about $120
    • Rules to be offered for free! Wow, big change for old GW.
    • All units to get “Warscrolls.” which are the equivalent of Dataslates in 40k, which will be free downloads.
    • Rumors of Formations to be coming in the future, too.
    • Units can all skirmish, but there are benefits to ranking up.

  • ITC FAQ has been updated, be sure to check it out as it will be in use for the BAO and all ITC events going forward.

    Yay for updated FaQ! As far as Eldar are concerned, I came out on the ‘right’ side of everything except the Aspect Host Formation’s Dedicated Transports benefitting from +1BS. Still don’t think that one’s right, but…. /shrug

      Yeah, I agree that the +1BS is certainly not RAI, but, it is RAW and we figured it wasn’t that big of a deal, really.

    Forgeworld have continuosly said for at least a year that they are working on an FAQ in response to any rules query they got. I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Man, I really want to go to the LVO, but it looks like I will miss it again 🙁
    Maybe I can volunteer. But why go If im not playing?
