        Great to listen to while I’m painting. I don’t get distracted by wanting to look at Reece and Frankie, like with Signals 😉 (though I’m not sure if the disappearance of Reece’s beard and subsequent ‘tache make this now more or less difficult……..)

          Oh, just a quick comment. I actually find the sound level on the Podcast to be quite low when I am listening, even with my computer volume on full. Any way to “turn it up” when recording?

            Yeah, that was just in the sound settings. I will turn them up next time.

    Really good episode. Great content, as usual, but particularly enjoyed this as a chaos Deathstar player myself. Hearing a successful players views on current meta gave me some food for thought.

    I’d be interested to hear why James says endurance is the most important power, I’d have assumed invis. Is this to do with ITC allowing template weapons to hit invis units?

      Endurance is so important because it gives you Eternal Warrior on 2 wound models.

    I think Endurance is his most imporant spell because it adds another protective dice against damage. 2+, 4++, then another 4+++.
