In this episode, we discuss getting started with Black Library books set in the Warhammer 40K universe. We will go through some of the major series of books and audiobooks that have been published and talk about some of our favorites. We will also talk about some of the really good titles to get you started in immersing yourself in the lore of Warhammer 40K.
In this episode, we interview Puck and David from The Renegade Open. We plan on attending so we wanted to know all about their unique format and missions for their 40K games. We also read what our listeners wrote to us about casual gamers and attending events.
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. Almost all the lists are space Marines lists and a few chaos lists, and because these are two of the earliest codices, they pose as special challenge if you want to build lists that play well on the table.
In this episode we talk about the Boise Cup, our largest annual 40K event in our area. Last year, the Boise Cup was held one week after the launch of the new edition of 40K, so it’s a perfect time to reflect on how the game has changed and evolved over the course of the year, especially when attending events. We also talk about what makes a 40K event successful and some of the lessons learned for next year
In this episode, we finish up our discussion on Craftworld Eldar or Asuryani. We talk about our own experiences playing Eldar, including our favorite units and some underrated gems in the codex. We also talk about the Psychic Powers, Stratagems, Relics, and Warlord Traits that are powerful and some of the combinations you can use. We will finish our discussion with how to get started with the army.
In this episode, we talk about target priority in 40K. Knowing what to engage and when is a huge part of being successful at the game. We start before the game begins when you look over your opponents list to identify the key threats to your army. We then talk about prioritizing these threats during the game and how best to engage them.
In this episode, we talk about the spring 2018 40K FAQ. We discuss this new era of 40K that we are playing, one in which an FAQ can cause some dramatic changes to the game. We also spend time talking about the new rules and what they mean for building and playing your army. Finally, we talk about what these changes might mean for the game moving forward.
In this episode, we talk about building a balanced list in 40K. We start with the basics of what a list should have to be competitive and then go into more detail as you start to consider more and more things as you build your list. We don’t tell you to take specific units, but rather we want to help YOU figure out how to build a balanced list based on your chosen army.
In this episode, we talk about how to quickly get your army up to the minimum 3-color standard that most events have set. The purpose is not to shame you into painting, or push an unrealistic standard; the purpose is to show you how to do this quickly and efficiently. We discuss the techniques that we use to get armies ready for events. If you struggle to get your models painted, or even if you hate painting, then this episode is for you.
In this episode, we talk about conducting successful assaults in Warhammer 40K. There are a lot of changes in this edition, starting with the fact that there is no more assault phase; its the Charge and Fight phase now. We discuss the reasons for charging and fighting and go into detail on the steps for each phase and all the flexibility you have as a player.
