Once again injecting some outlaw flavour into GNR, Dan and Fab talk about GPL Enforcement and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Dan is back by popular demand and brings with him a load of stories of playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Redemption Online. But before we get into that, we discuss the recent GPL enforcement case Hellwig vs. VMware at the OLG Hamburg. The Software Freedom Conservancy is involved as well. As Fab was there in person, he reports from the court proceedings.


Dan then talks about playing RDR2 online and offline. He really emjoys the game but has also been bullied by a posse of no good kids with tricked out weapons. Those kids have it coming, though!

Fab asks the most important question about the game: How good are the horse balls?


We end the show by talking about your feedback, as is customary.

Dave, Mike and Fab talk Warhammer 40K, Magic: The Gathering and also look at The Expanse Board Game.

Mike’s back on the show and he’s been doing Movember. Just look at that mustache!

Naturally, there’ll be a lot of Warhammer talk in this episode. But we start with Dave reviewing The Expanse Board Game.


After that Dave and Fab discuss Magic: The Gathering some more. Dave reviews Fab’s most recent draft deck and came up with an improved version. At some point the Black Lotus gets mentioned.


Mike then updates us on the latest developments in Warhammer 40K: VigilusDa OrksPrimaris Calgar and other bits and bobs. We talk about the new 40K podcast from Games Workshop.

It even has an RSS feed!

Mike also talks about two Black Library books he’s gotten into recently, namely The Lords Of Silence and Dark Imperium: Plague War. He also mentions Warhammer Horror and Track of Words.

Also check out Karl the Nurgling.

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.

Dave and Fab discuss software development crunch, freelance journalism, music and the game Objects in Space. There’s also some geek news to wade through, of course.

Fab was a guest on FLOSS Weekly 492 together with Dan (you know, that guy from Linux Outlaws). Also, he’s going freelance with his day job by the end of the year. He’s also started a new Twitch channel. Dave’s been hit by crunch, and he says it’s as horrible as people say it is. He’s managed to work on his Kill Team stuff, though.

Fab’s been really enjoying Hulkoff. He’s also bought a ticket for Wacken 2019 as Sabaton is headlining.


Fab’s been playing Objects in Space and reviews the game.


Alex Jones is being shut down everywhere, Fab things this isn’t a good thing. Unsurprisingly, Dave disagrees. In other news, there’s now a campaign to fix PUBG. The first thing they should fix is the cheater problem.

Fallout 76 is not coming to Steam. Idiots.

We end the show with your feedback and the bombshell news that Dave has deleted his Twitter account. 😳

GNR 67 – They Keep Coming!

Fab and Mike talk about Heavy Metal, Warhammer 40K fiction, female Space Marines and the changes that are being wrought upon our hobby.

We start the episode with a preview of Operation SOAP, our trip to Sabaton Open Air in Falun, Sweden. Fab will take his motorbike and meet up with Mike and the boys in Copenhagen and then we’ll drive up together. Mike reviews the bands we definitely want to see – aside from the almighty Sabaton, of course.

Fab is especially intrigued by Hulkoff. And yes, he indeed has an outlaw country band like Fab suspected.

We also talk about Danish student caps for some reason.


Mike then goes through the Black Library books he’s read recently. This includes the Eisenhorn short story collection The Magos and the latest Gaunt’s Ghosts book by Dan Abnett: The Warmaster. He’s also read The Devastation of Baal by Guy Haley. Currently, he’s reading Wolfsbane which was also written by Guy Haley.

We mention the background book The Sabbat Worlds Crusade which Mike is lucky enough to own, and also Warmaster Macaroth.


Fab and Mike then dive into the fray of the discussion around female Space Marines. Especially Fab is not OK with this prospect and we try to analyse why that is. This ends up being a quite thorough discussion about contemporary changes to fictional universes we’ve loved since we were kids.
