Show Notes

Mike’s back and brings a massive amount of Warhammer 40K topics to the table. Dave and Fab talk Star Trek: Discovery, The Witcher and how to keep drone batteries from exploding.


After the usual introductory bants, we discuss the latest the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery and how Warhammer 40K it has become.

Fab’s been reading The Last Wish, the first book in the Witcher series and he’s started on the first game as well. There also seems to be a Netflix series in the cards.

Dave’s drone battery storage.

Meanwhile, Dave has bought a drone and is very worried the battery might explode.


The meat of the show is made up of all the Warhammer 40,000 related topics Mike brought along.

Mike’s Knights of the Crimson Grail

We talk about Mike’s Knights of the Crimson Grail as well as the books Old Earth by Nick Kyme and Black Legion by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Aaron has a blog that is well worth reading.

Black Library has a new submission window open at the moment. This might be our chance to get published by Games Workshop and we ponder that we might make this the next challenge for the Vier Feldherren. The BL Bolthole might be of use here.

Fab is overcome by a minor rant on Games Workshop’s kerning.

We also discuss Operation SOAP and the fact that Boris Becker is missing his trophies. Yes, several of them. Oh, Boris and his shenanigans.


At the end of the show, we discuss feedback received from you, our listeners. This includes more information on the weird Xbox CPU bug Dave mentioned and also wood fire ovens.

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

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

Fab and Dave discuss Gamescom, the classic games Schleichfahrt and AquaNox as well as hipster blog platforms and Season 2 of The Expanse.

Dave tells us about his holiday is Scotland and how he enabled Let’s Encrypt for his Ghost blog. Fab’s been trying to set up Hugo. Dave’s also compiled a new list of the podcasts he’s subscribed to. We also get into an Android/iPhone discussion for some reason.

Fab reports from Gamescom (even though that’s been over for weeks now), including how saw Sabaton and reported on Angela Merkel opening the trade show. After that week, Fab is really fed up with YouTube influencers now.

Speaking of games, Fab revisits his favourite game ever: Schleichfahrt. This game is known by the horrible game Archimedean Dynasty in the Englisch speaking market. It’s available on GOG.

There were two sequels: AquaNox and AquaNox 2: Revelation. THQ Nordic is now working on a reboot called AquaNox: Deep Decent.

The second season of The Expanse is now on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it already, you should do so immediately. We recap why we like it so much. It’s so much better than Game of Thrones.

Dave bought a Nintendo Switch with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He’s been enjoying the console a lot.

At the end of the episode we address your feedback.

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.

Fab:

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.
