Episode 94: Overlooked Units in 40K

In this episode, we discuss overlooked units in 40K. These may be units that you don’t see or hear about very often or that have been dismissed online because they are not the most efficient choices. Whatever the case, we set out to come up with units that we think can serve a useful role in your army list. They may not be the best, but they are better than you think and if you love the model sometimes that is what counts.

Episode 93: Breaking out of a 40K Hobby Slump

In this episode, we talk about breaking out of a 40K hobby slump. No matter how much you love the hobby of 40K, there will be times when you lose your motivation to build and paint models, to play games, or to engage with the 40K community. Sometimes you might just be tired of one part of the hobby, others you might just feel like you need a break completely. It happens to all of us eventually and this episode is about what you can do to become inspired by the 40k hobby again.
