This is another podcast on the changing nature of the game and its impact on the ruleset, which has changed a lot in the 15 months since this new edition of 40k has been out.
In this episode, we talk about the Deployment phase. We often hear that games are won or lost in the deployment phase, and in many ways it is one of the most important phases in the game.

In this episode, we talk about list building. We have had many listeners write in with questions about their lists and we wanted to commit an entire episode around list building.
