Joe, Mike, Fab and Dave embark on a epic journey to see what the new edition of Warhammer 40K has to offer. They also commit to do a lot of painting this year.
We got a full house this time around and we’re all fired up to talk about the 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000. But before we dive in, Fab recommends Kiefer Sutherland’s country album Down in a Hole. It’s on Spotify.
As we get into the main part of the show, we talk about 8th Edition Warhammer 40K. Everyone has the rulebook… Well, everyone except Fab, since Games Workshop is shit at delivering things. But that doesn’t stop him nerding about it.
For some reason, Mike talks us all into committing to paint a shitload of 40K minis until December and update you regularly on it via the podcast. We call this project Die Geschichte der vier Feldherren (#4Feldherren). Joe whinges a lot, but he’ll probably win. Using his weird miniature holder. Stay tuned for our progress.
Before the show ends, Dave runs away again. Like the smurf coward he is. Mike, Fab and Joe know no fear and end the show with your feedback.
Fab and Dave talk about Mass Effect. A lot. Both Andromeda and the original trilogy.
By way of an introduction, we tell you about our booze habits. Nothing new there. Dave then explains why Battle Beast are awesome (he saw them live in concert the other night). Also: Who would’ve believed Games Workshop would sort out their merchandise game one of these days? Banging.
We then dive into the meat of the show, a massive conversation about Mass Effect: Andromeda and why it’s shit. And why Dave loves it nonetheless. We also discuss the original Mass Effect games. Fab’s been taking a page out of Dave’s book and has started, highly relevant chap that he is, to play through the first game.
Here are some impressions of Dave’s green-haired Ryder going about her business:
And this is what Fab’s Shepard looks like in the first Mass Effect. That’s ten-year-old tech.
The facial animations are better than the ones in the new game, believe it or not. Case in point:
We also mentioned some other images on the episode which Fab came across while we recorded:
Full house on Geek News Radio. We got Mike, we got Char and we got the bants. Lots of bants. And Korean skincare.
We’re starting off the show by talking about drinks and by catching up with what Char’s been up to – among other things the Screenshake festival. She also has a newsletter now. Out of respect for her, there won’t be any The Expanse talk this episode, because… spoilers. Check out these wisdoms from Avasarala in the meantime.
