  • GW actually updated a Warscroll for AoS as there was a mistake on it. The Blood Warriors were listed as having the wrong weapons, and it got updated. Wow.

  • Video for both the Chaos AoS Dreadhold and Blood Warriors are up. The Dreadhold is actually pretty cool in that it is totally modular. You can build a wide variety of configurations with it.

Upcoming ITC Events

itc.logo.01.1

We had a bunch of events this past weekend! TSHFTsounded like a blast and congratz to T0C member Josh Dearth for winning it.

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.

  • Possible new Chaos Codex this year? Rumors floating around that this could be the case.
    • Rumors of a new Daemon Engine to accompany this release.
  • Also, rumors of a new Tau codex this year as well, in addition to the rumors we’ve all been hearing about a Tzeentch Daemonkin codex, too! Would be a busy 4th quarter if so.
  • Rumors of new Citadel Air paint range coming? If so, awesome!
  • Images floating around of the Celestant Prime for the Stormcast Eternals.
  • Rumors that the 30k Boxed game is coming soon, has it’s own logo and will be a standalone product, but that it will be receiving more updates, soon.
    • Rumors of it being Imperial Fists vs. Iron Warriors or Ultramarines vs. Word Bearers.
    • Rumored to be called the Battle for Ultramar.
  • Plastic Assassins to be available soon in individual clampacks.
  • Rumors of more Board Games on the way, based on the model of Space Hulk: models for use in 40k along with a “Free” game to play with them.
  • A reassessment of the Games Workshop product line in the works. What this means, we will have to wait and see.

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

  • Battle Company, Dark Angels and War Convocation in action.
  • Counters to the Grav Spam we’re seeing all over the place.

TOTAL POINTS: 1849

Note: WarBoss with lucky stikk rides with one mob of mega nobz to boost the WS to 6 but will join the

green tide when needed to boost its WS. One pain boy runs with the green tide the other rides with

another mob of mega nobz. I have no anti air in this list but feel it can work around it. The size of the

green tide mob can control combat air space and I can focus on what on the ground. Grots will almost

always be held in reserve and are only in list to meet troop requirement and to take objectives. Void

Shield will help cover boyz and/or trucks from at least on heavy weapon shot.  Had success with list so

far but haven’t tested it against a solid tournament list. I can field any type of ork list but think this one

has potential. Thoughts? Also I run the old Gorka Morka Trucks is their any issue at an ITC event running

such a small model?

    I was the battle co gt winner that Reece couldn’t remember. 🙁
    I think the msu design still works great, despite what he says about it. :p

    As a question building on the ITC profiles idea: I’d like to see “home area” of players, like maybe what state they live in. Would make for some fun analysis opportunities like “hey I’m 1st in my state” etc etc.

    Love the idea on having profiles etc. For a lot of the information you’d want though, it means collecting MORE information from TOs, such as the match ups each round etc. We can discuss it, and it’s all doable, if we can collect and collate the information reliably!

    We could however, do profile pages with placings at various tournaments, and over various seasons of the ITC, and also show what “factions” they played as their “main”.
