Show Notes

Three quarters of the Vier Feldherren unite once again to bring you Warhammer news and some 40K painting progress. And lack thereof, of course. We also talk about an Apple fail and live music.

Fab’s been working on a new look for the Sixgun site and hopes you don’t find it completely despicable. Dave’s also redesigned his site. The SSL errors haven’t changed, though.

We talk about our plans for Sabaton Open Air, also known as “Operation SOAP”.

Fab went to see Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul in Hamburg.

We laugh heartily at macOS being shit and talk about the news in Warhammer Land:

Dave, Mike and Fab review their #4Feldherren progress. It looks like Dave is the clear winner here. Fab and Mike are locked in the turtle race for second place. Shout-out to listener Niklas for showing us how it’s done.

Dave also beat Icarus at 40K – actually playing this game, what is this madness??? 

We end the show with listener feedback and a question from Fab: What gaming monitor should he buy? This is perfect but too expensive…

Show Notes

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.

Star Trek: Discovery launches on 24 September. And the US Department of Defense bought uniforms for the Afghan National Army. It uses forest camouflage. I shit you not. The company that made it has its branding down, however.

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.

Show Notes

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.

Dave has a message for Jono Bacon. Fab updates everyone on what’s been going on with the EDRPG: i.e. a huge copyright cockup. Also: The Commanders update is coming to Elite. Mike’s been enjoying the game lately and has been trying to recruit his friends to join him.

Dave played a lot of board games when he visited Char. They talk about some of them, including Deep Sea Adventure and Mechs & Minions.

For people who used to listen to Linux Outlaws, Fab gives a short heads-up on what’s been happening with LiMux in Munich. This degenerates into a political discussion about Trump and the state of the world right now. Mike recommend the book It Can’t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis.

Mike recaps some of the latest developments with Warhammer 40K, including The Gathering Storm.

Follow Frame Shift on Twitter.

Char explains Korean skincare to the guys. It involves snail goop, I shit you not. Check out Chok Chok Glow and also YellowyCream on YouTube.

Getting bored by now? Make your own Trump tweet. Sad.

Dave tries to get everyone to watch weird anime like Yuri on Ice, Haikyuu and Psycho Pass. Fab admits that he used to watch Attack No.1 (which is called Mila Superstar in Germany). Also: Disco Metal.

Char says everyone needs to watch Tom Hardy’s Taboo.

As always, we answer your feedback. Use Bytemark.

Show Notes

This time around, Dave and Fab bring you a lot of hobby talk: Blood Bowl, Warhammer and White Dwarf. But they also talk tech news and spaceships.

Trump it is. We’re all screwed. The End Times indeed. In other bad news, the great Leonard Cohen has died.

There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in

But we also have some good news: Season 2 of The Expanse is coming to Syfy on 8 February.

If you want to know what the current date in 40K notation is, Fab’s got you covered. Also: EVE Online is now free! Wooohoo! Maybe Fab will finally stick with it now. Their berets leave much to be desired, though.

EVE Berets

In other news, hell has frozen over! And a Hello Games designer who used to work for Molyneux is combo-chaining clusterfucks, he has gone to work at Star Citizen.

Next, it’s hobby talk. There’s a brand new Warhammer community site and Total Warhammer is coming to Linux. We talk Blood Bowl and Fab reviews the November issue of White Dwarf. Meanwhile, GNR collaborator Joe Ward has been featured on the GW site as part of #PaintingWarhammer.

Dave is now a fan of Microsoft’s tech support. He’s not a fan of upgrading his Ubuntu server, though. Also: Ghost in the Shell.

As always, the show ends with your feedback.

Show Notes

The multi-talented Char joins us to talk writing for Divinity: Original Sin 2, board games and right-to-left geekery.

Bolt Thrower announced that the band is no more. Was it us?

Fab thanks @amokleben for sending him coffee and enthuses over Alestorm.

DGR 2016 Hamburg

He also took part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride in Hamburg over the weekend – it was a lot of fun. The bikes stretched all across the Köhlbrandbrücke.


Dave and Char discuss Duelyst. It’s a card game. Without actual cards. Dave then reports of his experience at EVE_NT in Nottingham.

Apparently, Games Workshop now does live streams. Live Streams that are eleven fucking hours long.

And they are releasing Russ. Or is it Fulgrim in a wolfskin suit? Bard probably has an opinion on that.

In the spirit (ha ha) of getting even more drunk on the show, we discuss game-themed cocktails. If you want to get it burning, use Stroh Rum. Once the mist clears, you’ll have a hell of a Hangover.

Dave and Char recommend some nice board games. Some of them don’t even use boards. Fab would like to try some, but sadly, he has no friends. He also tells the story of how Risk nearly destroyed his life twice.

Divinity: Original Sin II

Since Char is a writer on Divinity: Original Sin II, we discuss the game. And its name. Which is almost as bad as Chasm: The Rift. Fab and Dave get chastised for having made their own character. The thing to do is pick Ifan – and the Oud, of course.

Fab and Dave discover that they don’t read as much fantasy books as they should. Char is writing a fantasy book herself and recommends some. There’s a handy list on a Kickstarter update from Larian Studios. It isn’t fantasy, but Dave bough the novel Hyperion live on the show on Char’s recommendation order.

We end the episode with Fab ignoring your feedback.

Also: Cheeky Nandos.
