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.

Fab, Dave and Char talk Into the Breach, Into the Breach, more Into the Breach and great TV shows.

Our friend Char makes her triumphant return to the podcast and brings stories about how the Islamic State was defeated during the Big Crunch of 2017.

This episode was in storage for a while, in case it isn’t immediately obvious – mostly because Fab lost Episode 59. We can therefore now actually congratulate Char on winning a BAFTA here in the show notes, as we didn’t know if that was indeed going to happen when we recorded.

As usual, we start by talking about booze and then there’s some board game talk because Dave played Power Grid with his engineering mates. Twilight Imperium is also discussed. We also introduce the Forstamt Pochinki.

We then enter the main topic: Into the Breach, which is Char’s new obsession. And for good reason – it’s excellent! You should also keep an eye on Slava’s Encased.

If you need to do some writing, you should check out the Payday 2 Soundtrack.

After the games talk, we discuss TV shows. Stuff we enjoy: Taboo, Halt and Catch Fire, Dark and Wild Wild Country. Fab also mentions the game Scavenger SV-4.

Fab’s Top Spotify Songs of 2017 is quite a mix, try to engineer recommendations on that one.

As is tradition, we end the show with your feedback. See you next time!
