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.

  • This is coming from yet another source, talking about how things are about to step even further towards midnight. Primarchs and Demon Primarchs coming to 40k, a huge Black Crusade Campaign.
  • They won’t be the same as they are in 30K. They’re going to be slightly different to account for the 10k year gap. We will be seeing The Lion, Russ, Guilliman, Khan, Mortarion, Angron, Perturabo and Magnus. It will be once all of the ‘end times’ build up has finished (all of the latest campaigns) and we enter the new age (8th edition).

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

Hi Guys,

I listen to your podcast, as a new 40k player I am enjoying what you guys are doing and keeping up with news, rules etc each week.

Feel free to sum up the following for the podcast, but it’s always nice to have some back ground.

I play spacewolf and play for fun in my local group so I only build my lists as pure spacewolf. I am struggling with taking down a DE opponent who has a large volume of boats which I am finding hard to destroy. Any long fangs that start on the board get killed 1st  turn which just feels like wasted points when I go second. Then any assault heavy units get stripped down quick as generally takes two turns to get into assault…

I have tried landspeeders but they seam to die faster than termingants been assaulted by a squad of wulfen…

Typically I use droppods to get in close (take objectives), but as I am trying to shoot up about 8/10 boats mixture of raiders, venoms and ravagers with a combined total of 24+ hp unless I get lucky with an explosion my troops die faster than the boats to the volume of ap2 rounds coming in…. Excluding  blaster borne on board the boats

Any ideas for 750, 1200 or 2000 point games?


Ps, saying in Russ we trust at the start of the game doesn’t work! 😛

    As a tourney Ork player I think you read the list a bit wrong.

    1) There are no Nob bikers, Just ordinary biker boyz with a nob.
    2) I think most of the time he is deploying the Battlewagon with the lootas and the Stompa.
    3) If the terrain isn’t favorable and he is going 2nd, he probably doesn’t deploy the bikestar. They probably outflank.

    I’m a little surprised by this Ork list. It doesn’t seem like there is enough MSU to compete very well in the ITC. As you said A few Deffkoptas would help out a bit, but also give opponents something easy to kill. I’ve been runninng 6 solo koptas in my Ork army in the ITC.

    I’m also surprised he isn’t running a KFF or a Voidshield. The Stompa is pretty survivable, but without those things it can get killed by lots of armies. He’s also running only 1 Deff Kannon which makes him better in assault but dramatically decreases his shooting. Still he does have lots of high strength coming off the Lootas and Tankbuastas so he might not need it.

    Congrats to him for doing so well.
