Show Notes

Fab and Dave celebrate GNR’s second birthday, bring you the relevant geek news and talk Warhammer 40K and Elite Dangerous.

We start the show with some geek news:

  EA’s stock price is fucked because of loot boxes.

  Top NSA hackers are as stupid as the next person some times.

  Hutton Orbital claims another victim.

  Linux Journal closes its doors.

  Django 2.0 is out!

Geek News Radio is now two years old! Fab’s been reflecting on it in a post on the new Sixgun blog.

Dave has has invented Warhammermas and went on a trip to Warhammer World. He tells us how much fun that was. The bastard.

In the meantime, Fab’s been laughing at this hilarious Rainbox Six thread on Reddit.

Fab had a week off and started a deep space exploration mission in Elite Dangerous.

In other news, Joakim wants to go cuddle with the polar bears. Help him out!

Dave’s been emo about Netrunner and Star Citizen is now selling virtual land that doesn’t exist.

We end the show by talking about your feedback. Thank you for the nice words in response to Fab’s blog post.

Show Notes

Join Dave, Mike, Joe and Fab on an episode full of Warhammer painting. Well, when we say painting, we mean we’re mostly talking about painting instead of actually doing it.

Fab, Dave, Mike and Joe come together to discuss their progress, or rather the lack of such, on their Warhammer 40K painting challenge #4Feldherren. While Dave’s actually been painting, he’s mostly added additional stuff to his commitment. Joe has been painting a lot, but none of it has been for the challenge. Fab and Mike have both progressed tiny amounts.





The lads also discuss the return of Necromunda and the new Star Wars miniatures game from Fantasy Flight Games.

We also talk about Ring Raiders for some bizarre reason that really isn’t apparent afterwards. Looks like the Luftwaffe are also fans.

Did Fab mention that he met Sabaton? Oh yeah, and he also bought the tank.

We end the show with your feedback. We have some catching up to do, since we weren’t able to include a feedback section last time. We also did it in record time, because Joe had to go to bed.

Show Notes

We are joined by our friend Joseph Ward to talk about Warhammer, Total War and Age of Sigmar.

Joe explains how he came to be on the show. We then start the episode with sportsball: The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the Stanley Cup and Germany and Wales are doing quite well in the Euro. We also discuss some E3 news and Dave rants about Apple’s WWDC event. Dave did like the Warcraft movie though, while Fab remains sceptical.

Total Warhammer

The Old World

Onwards to the main topic: Warhammer. Fab discusses the recently released Total War: Warhammer (“Total Warhammer”) and Joe explains how he came to play Warhammer Fantasy Battle – Fab and Dave were partly to blame thanks to Angels of Death. He now plays Age of Sigmar, however, and likes it very much. He even plays in tournaments from time to time and explains how the organisers modify the rules to make games more balanced.

After Joe runs away like a coward to attend to his fatherly duties, we end the show by addressing your feedback.
