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.


This week, we have no feedback. Send us some for an upcoming show! Or even better, come and join our Discord.

Babylon 5 is not coming to Europe, Kill Team doesn’t have many real kill teams in it, Simon Stålenhag is great and Fab reviews Surviving Mars.

Fab’s work life has been hell recently and Dave is stuck in startup crunch mode. But we nonetheless vow to get back to recording more regularly.

Babylon 5 may be coming to Amazon Video… not in Europe, though. Of course, it isn’t. Fuckers! We still want to do Babylon 5 Babble-On, though.


Fab has become a huge fan of Simon Stålenhag’s work. No wonder, the guy paints amazing scenes. Fab even wants to get a print to hang in his office. Meanwhile, Dave tries to make the French Tuck happening. He also loves this bike.

Like this tweet!


Dave discusses 40K things: The new Kill Team game, his Everlasting Wet Palette and the minis he bought from Anvil Industry and what he’s gonna do with them for Kill Team.


We then discuss some news. This includes the EU fining Google because of Android and Google’s cloud data transfer project. We also mention the World Cup in passing. Dave also wants to talk about the Tour de France for some reason.


To round out the show, Fab reviews Surviving Mars and we talk about your feedback. If you’d like to play Fortnite 🤮, tweet Dave.

Mike returns for an epic discussion of all things 40K-related, including those kids books.

In another entry of an episode we recorded ages ago and just released now, we bring you a special on Warhammer 40K and also our latest #4Feldherren update.

As part of this, Mike joins us once again from the dry wastes of Ireland to talk about all the things that have happened 40K-wise since he was on last. Of course, we also discuss the somewhat controversial 40K children’s books. Warning: Fab Rant incoming! We then reminisce about how we got into the hobby and speculate to where it will all lead.

To wrap up the show, we address your feedback, as is customary.

Err... What?

Mike, Dave and Fab discuss the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the Uber self-driving car accident. And of course, there’s Warhammer 40K talk.

Fab discovers that in Denmark, they also watch Dinner for One religiously on New Years. Mike and Fab then have to explain this concept to the Brit in the room.

Dave’s despairing over his Pixel C at last. Fab recommends he buy a real man’s laptop.


In this episode we, uncharacteristically, talk about the news.

The AI cars have started killing people.

And then there’s this business with Cambridge Analytica.


We give an update on our #4Feldherren plans and end the show by addressing your feedback. A discussion between Halefa and Jonathan M. H. was particularly funny. We also found some video games that have worse names than Divinity: Original Sin II. Some examples:

Passionate about Primarchs

We’re freezing in Hamburg, Birmingham and Dublin under the sway of The Beast from the East. To keep ourselves warm, we fight about women Space Marines and Divinity: Original Sin II.

It’s very cold, so we discuss our various cultural means of dealing with THE BEAST FROM THE EAST.

Fab’s been creating beautiful wallpapers from maps and fighting Pro 7, no sorry PRO SIEBEN, on Twitter. Meanwhile, Mike and Dave are discussing feminist Space Marines.

We also discuss the “Legion of Dave” by Leakycheese. Also: Sisters of Battle represent!


We’ve been putting it off for way too long, so now we finally talk about our opinions on, by many accounts the best game of 2017, Divinity: Original Sin II.

Fab mentions The Crate & Crowbar‘s D&D session. Oh yeah, and #4feldherren is back!


Elite Dangerous: Beyond is out and brings some new content. Part of that is better missions and a very, very sexy ship. Contrary to what Fab said on the show, you don’t need an Alliance naval rank to buy it. Still, it’s confusingly named the Alliance Chieftain.

Just look at that ass!

We revisit the Passion Planner. Apparently it is the best selling personal organiser on US Amazon now.


As is traditional, we end the show by talking about your feedback. And remember: Read The Shadow over Innsmouth, kids!
