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.

An Aarhus-sæt

Dave mentions the now-defunct BattleCon Kickstarter project.

Check out Dan’s new podcast: Tales of the Unattested.

In other news, Der Letzte Bulle is getting a movie and Hulkoff is releasing a new single. There’s also a new Battletech boxed game coming and Wargaming is opening a studio in Guildford.


Fab gives a quick review of The Bard’s Tale IV, which we kinda hoped has a multiplayer mode but it hasn’t. It does have Julie Fowlis, however.


We then get into the main meat of the show. Several hours of Warhammer talk, including Kill Team and Kill-Teams. Dave has been very busy building terrain for it and he explains it in scientific detail.

Dave has read many Gaunt’s Ghosts books and mentions how they strongly resemble Sharpe. Mike has finished Wolfsbane and tells us about it. We also discuss our #4Feldherren progress, or lack of it. Warhammer 40,000: Conquest – What evil is this???

Apropos of nothing: Dawn of Amber.

 

We close the show with your feedback.

We are back home and bring you the second part of our Sabaton Open Air review, where we talk about the bands from the last day, including Powerwolf and Sabaton.

We are back from our trip to Sweden and give an update what we’ve all been up to. Mike has toured Denmark and has visited Legoland in Billund. Fab has started playing Divinity: Original Sin II with the Danish boys, finished the story of Battletech, had a wonderful trip on a beautiful old ship and is still loving Stålenhag. His new favourite podcast is Wrestle Me. Dave has mostly been loving Sweden.

In the main segment of this episode, we finish our recap of Sabaton Open Air 2018, which we started on the previous episode. Bands reviewed:

We end the show with your feedback. And remember to check out @hwoutlaws.

The GNR theme tune is The Washington Post March by John Philip Sousa.

Dave and Fab discuss Amazon’s Bosch, Netflix’ Lost in Space and Marvel’s Infinity War.

First off, some news: Pillars of Eternity II is out and looks like it’s shaping up to be as great as its predecessor. Fab is looking forward to playing it a lot, but has no clue when he can find the time because he’s still playing Battletech a lot.

In other news, Elite Dangerous for the Mac is dead for technical reasons.

Fab has been watching Bosch, a cop show on Amazon starring Titus Welliver. He also reviews Lost in Space on Netflix. Dave really likes Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Dave’s been to the cinema and has watched Avengers: Infinity War. You will be shocked to discover that he enjoyed it very much.

We wrap up the episode with some feedback from our awesome Discord server.

Old Man Dave talks about Ubuntu 18.04 on the Dell XPS 13 and Lara Croft fanboy Fab talks about his experience at the premiere event for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. He also reviews BattleTech.

Fab has finally figured out why Dave’s audio was suboptimal for ages and it isn’t pretty – it turns out Fab’s an idiot. Speaking of annoying things: Dave gives an update on House Ownership 101.

Dave has bought a Dell XPS 13 and slapped Ubuntu 18.04 on it – by all accounts it’s going quite well. He’s also started using Atom to see if Fab’s completely mad for using it instead of Sublime Text.

Meanwhile, Fab was in London at the exclusive Shadow of the Tomb Raider premiere event. The game looks great, Fab’s very much looking forward to its release in September.

Until Shadow of the Tomb Raider arrives, though, Fab’s currently favourite game in the world is Battletech. It’s so fucking good!

We wrap up the show by answering your feedback. Including a scathing email from Listener No. 1 Niklas. It also seems Mike’s been busy stealing Bitcoins…
