Highlights: This week the guys are joined by Aaron for their full coverage of Imperial Armour 12: The Fall of Orpheus! They opened up the show with ‘the Work Bench’ where they cover their latest hobby progress and games played. This included a quick review of the new ‘Relic’ board game from Fantasy Flight. Next, the boys moved on to part one of their review of Imperial Armor 12! This is the story and campaign side of the review. They first look at the book itself, the outstanding artwork, and the overall look and feel of this book. They move on to discuss the background story of the campaign, what races are involved how they have interacted with each other up until the point of the start of the campaign. This included Chaos uprisings, putting down of the heretics, Marines and Sisters getting involved in uprising, a secret Necron awaking that darkened half of the sector and marched over Imperial forces, the rabidly insane Dynasty of Necrons involved and the horrible war that followed, and much more. In their next segment, the boys looked at the in game aspects of this book, starting with the ‘Badab War style’ Campaign presented in the book and how it works, how the campaign points system works, what missions are run, the legendary missions, and much more. They then move on to the new models and army list found within this new book, which included the awesome bomber and the fortification for the Necrons! They briefly went over the Minotaurs Space Marine chapter, the Death Korps of Krieg, and much more. They then give their overall thoughts on the book, including their ‘Bang for your Buck’ value. They closed out the show with an interview with James from Mr. Dandy miniatures and they discussed his company and his most recent releases.

They opened up with an overview of the event, point value, venue, missions and all. They then went over Bill’s, Dave’s, and Andy’s’ rounds in some detail, the mission for those round, what their opponent’s brought, and the outcome of the games.

They closed out the show with an interview with Matt Cerino where they discussed his store Stomping Grounds and the upcoming Kiladelphia Open 2013!
Opinion: This week’s show was short and Romeo-free. My personal highlights of this week’s show were the Black Library corner where they reviewed a book I am about to read and their tips for getting over hobby obstacle. Good work guys, I really enjoyed this one.
