Highlights: This week the boys are taking a new look at Imperial Armour 3: The Tauros Campaign, with the second edition released. They opened up the show with ‘the Work Bench’ where they discuss what they have been up to lately in the hobby and gaming. Next, they moved on to the new evaluation of Imperial Armour 3: The Tauros Campaign Second Edition (for their review of the first edition book, please see episode 48)! They first started off with a side-by-side comparison from the first edition book and the second, in look, feel, artwork and editing. They story from both booth is exactly the same, so the only changes are in the rules and the editing. They then moved on to discuss what changed, included changes made to the Elysian Drop Troops, the Tallarn Regiment, and of course the Tau! They moved on to discuss the new missions with this book, the Battlefleet Gothic mission (despite it no longer being supported by GW), and more. They also explored the reasons why Forgeworld published this book as opposed to updating it via a pdf. They then moved on to discuss the value of this book, if you play Tau, if you own the first edition of the book, and more. Then, in the ‘Warrior’s Lodge’ Geoff sat down with some of the wives of their gaming club to discuss what it is like to be a ‘40K Widow’! Geoff talked to Shell, Natasha, and Kim the wives of Carl, Lars, and Adon. They discuss time management for the hobby, communications, time away from the family and much more! They also discuss the benefits to having a husband in the hobby, including the social accepts of the hobby, the stress relief, the tactical aspect of the game and the artist outlet to playing this game. They also offer up some advice for those women with husband/boyfriends who play the game, which included splitting time and finances for separate hobbies. They closed out the show with an interview with Behavior Interactive on the new 40K MMO in development. They discussed the Free-to-Play model of the game, they experience in the industry, working with GW, their plans for the game and much more!
Opinion: I am having a hard time deciding which half of this show I liked best. The review of Imperial Armour 3 was mostly a refresher course, with all the changes that make this book worth it pointed out. I have to say though, I think the wives outshined the boys this week, and it was just fascinating to hear from them and their thoughts on the hobby. I am also happy to hear I am doing a lot of things right with my wife, judging by their thought. Great work guys, and girls!
