Episode 80: Chapter Approved 2018
In this episode, we talk about Chapter Approved 2018. We discuss the history of chapter approved and what it does for the game of 40k. We also go into the details, including the new missions, units, rules and points adjustments, and try and answer the question; is Chapter Approved worth your money? We also discuss the new campaign book Vigilus Defiant and pseudo return of formations to 40K. We also wrap up our discussion of demystifying the airbrush.

3 Ways to Play
Open play supported by custom units; looted wagons and character creation.

- Slay the Warlord, First Strike, Linebreaker
- Measure from center to edges for multi-objective markers.
