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

Fab and Dave discuss Dragon Age II, the board game Bolt Action and about creating voxel art with MagicaVoxel.

We start off with another talk about the Apple vs. FBI kerfuffle and Fab complains about the price of the new iPad Pro and Apple’s pencil.

Fab reviews Dragon Age II, which is one of his favourite video games ever. He thinks it’s generally very underrated. In a future episode, Fab will also cover Dragon Age: Inquisition which he’s started now.

Dave covers the historical wargame Bolt Action, which he considers superior to Warhammer 40K as far as rules and miniature prices is concerned. Dave’s playing the Finnish army and we mention the White Death. Fab rather fancies Roza Shanina, however.

Roza Shanina

Fab recently got into voxel art and explains how to work with MagicaVoxel. He mentions inspiration from Sir Carma and from MagicaVoxel-creator ephtracy. Also have a look at their Twitter accounts, if you are interested in this: @sir_carma, @ephtracy.
