There’s a lot of talk about 8th Edition being a “horde meta,” but what does that actually mean for you as a player?
In this episode, we explore the relative strengths of both horde armies and elite armies, and how they each function on the tabletop. From movement to board control to objective-holding, both armies can perform a lot of impressive tricks- but if you’re going up against them, you’re going to need to fight those strategies very differently. We also look at why you might favor one strategy over the other as well as how they each interact with some of the fundamental rules of 8E, like characters, morale, and model placement.
As usual, we also have a nod to our tempo episode as we consider how to fight each of them as well as more discussion of weapon types and how each of the two armies achieves saturation with its respective profile- all of these separate topics are fundamentally related, as it turns out. Plus, an opportunity to hear about each of the hosts’ Closet of Shame and its horrible, money-wasting contents.
