This is a long one. Dave, Mike and Fab talk Warhammer 40K, Kill Team and also give a short review of The Bard’s Tale IV.
We start the show off with some housekeeping. Fab has recently backed two Kickstarter projects that you might find interesting: Encased, the RPG made by Char’s friend Slava and also Things From the Flood, a Simon Stålenhag RPG.
Mike returns for an epic discussion of all things 40K-related, including those kids books.
In another entry of an episode we recorded ages ago and just released now, we bring you a special on Warhammer 40K and also our latest #4Feldherren update.
As part of this, Mike joins us once again from the dry wastes of Ireland to talk about all the things that have happened 40K-wise since he was on last. Of course, we also discuss the somewhat controversial 40K children’s books. Warning: Fab Rant incoming! We then reminisce about how we got into the hobby and speculate to where it will all lead.
To wrap up the show, we address your feedback, as is customary.
BREAKING: New details about Aleksandr Kogan's research. A different personality quiz he was using to pull @facebook data via its API in St Petersburg in summer 2014. To measure – gulp – the "dark triad": psychopathy, narcissism, machiavellianism pic.twitter.com/cZoT23zRlJ
Elite Dangerous: Beyond is out and brings some new content. Part of that is better missions and a very, very sexy ship. Contrary to what Fab said on the show, you don’t need an Alliance naval rank to buy it. Still, it’s confusingly named the Alliance Chieftain.
Meanwhile, Dave has bought a drone and is very worried the battery might explode.
The meat of the show is made up of all the Warhammer 40,000 related topics Mike brought along.
We talk about Mike’s Knights of the Crimson Grail as well as the books Old Earth by Nick Kyme and Black Legion by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Aaron has a blog that is well worth reading.
Black Library has a new submission window open at the moment. This might be our chance to get published by Games Workshop and we ponder that we might make this the next challenge for the Vier Feldherren. The BL Bolthole might be of use here.
