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.

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

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.
