Episode 48: Playing with Titanic Units

In this episode, we talk about playing with Titanic units in 40k. Many events have banned all units above a power level of 31, but how necessary is this? We talk about all of the units that would be banned and evaluate it for durability and lethality to see how good they are and if these units have a place in a 2000 point Matched Play game.

Episode 42: Tables and Terrain in 40K

In this episode, we discuss tables and terrain in 40k. This can make or break a game of 40k. When you attend events the most important thing players talk about is the terrain. Most tables don’t have enough. If you want to play a balanced and competitive game of 40k, you need to have the right terrain.
