Highlights: This week, Bill and Carl from the Independent Characters took a first look at the new Chaos Daemons Codex. They opened up the show with what they have been up to lately in gaming and the hobby. Up next, Bill and Carl moved on to their first look at the new Chaos Daemons Codex starting with how it compares to the Chaos Space Marine Codex and how well the two work together. They then cover each of the alignments of Chaos and their benefits, the Daemonic Instability rule, their Warlord Traits, and the interesting things in the Warp Strom Table. They move on to discuss the new deployment rules for the army before looking at some of the top HQ units from the book, including the Heralds. They moved on to highlight the Troop choices, discussing the points cost drop on the models and their move to a more hoard style army. They then moved on to push through the rest of the Codex, sorted by god of Chaos, and hit on some of the highlight models. This included the great Soul Grinder!
Opinion: Overall this was a good first look at the real Codex. As the Independent Characters had a rough week this week, if you need your extra dose of Carl, and don’t we all, you can find him here. I did find myself wanting for a bit more in this review, but it was clear they tried to get in as much as they could under a short timeframe. So for what it was, it was pretty good.
Highlights: This week the boys had some issues recording for their scheduled time frame. So, what they did was released a pre-recorded ‘Warrior Lodge’ segment for this week’s show. Carl opened up the show with a few announcements and a few ‘thanks’ before moving on to the ‘Warrior Lodge’. This time, Carl, Addon, JR, and Jason sit down to discuss several hot topics. Their first topic was one of my favorites, eBay wins and losses, which included some great tips for what to watch for when buying on eBay. They moved on to discuss what they called the Third Army, which is terrain and fortifications in games of 40K. Specifically they talked about the Bay Area Open and what they learned about fortifications in tournaments. Next, the boys discussed the deployments and missions of 6th Edition and give their overall opinion on them and shared some great stories. Next, they took a look at the internet and its effect on the game. Is the internet a good or bad thing for 40K? They covered the topics of Net Listing, Rankings, Tournaments, Podcasts, Community building and much more. They closed out the segment with some fun dice superstitions!
Opinion: First, I am glad to see the guys got their technically issues straightened out, and that we will not go wanting for this great show. Now, as for this week, despite being much shorter then we have grown accustomed to, this was still a lot of fun. It covered on a lot of topics I enjoyed, from the adventures with eBay to the double edged sword that is the internet on our hobby. Check it out!
