Opinion: This was really an interesting show, with a topic most people don’t touch: The Double Force Org! I, for one, have yet to play a single game with a double Force Org. So this was really a great refresher on the rules around it and how to do it properly. Easily my favorite for the week, nice work guys!
Highlights: This week the guys are tackling the Assault Phase in 6th Edition. They opened up the show with a little news, which included the updated Sisters of Battle digital codex, before moving on to the main topic for the show, the Assault Phase in 6th Edition. They start off with a quick definition of the armies that lean more on assault then shooting, like Tyranids, Orks, Black Templar, and more. They moved on to how the Assault rules have changed in 6th, starting with random charge lengths, and moving on to Overwatch and how to use those rules to your advantage. This moved into a great conversation about how to tactically use your assault units in this era of a shooting edition. This also discussed how the Transport rules changing also changed how the assault phase works, including the 6” disembarking rule. They then discussed how the rules for assaults out of reserves or from deep strike have changed, how Flyers have also changed the face of the game, how Monstrous Creatures work in combat now, and how the power weapon rule change has affected the assault phase. They then discussed the Challenge mechanic, some of the nebulous rules around it, and how some characters cannot hold up to a challenge versus a MC or other special characters. They summed up their thought on the subject before topping off the show with their hobby updates.
Opinion: This was a really interest show this week, looking at how the assault phase has changed with 6thEdition. I really liked hearing what major differences there were between 5th and 6th, and this was a pretty compressive look at the whole phase top to bottom. I really enjoyed it.
Opinion: So very happy to see the guys back in a reasonable time frame! This was a really good look at what they guys were hoping for before 6thand what came to pass. I also really liked the look at the Farsight Enclaves supplement. The gem, as usual, of course was the Battle Report. Check this one out!
Highlights: This week Dawson is back and he and Bill are discussing the all-important List-Building tactics in 6thEdition! They opened up the show with what they have been doing lately in gaming and the hobby. They also covered a game that they just finished playing where Bill took his Raven Guard against Dawson’s Dark Angels/ Space Wolves list. Next, they moved on to the main topic of the show, List-Building tactics in 6thEdition. They started off with the Troops choices and their main purpose in the game, holding and taking objectives. They discuss the idea of MSU troop choices, more durable troop choices, and tactics to capturing and holding those objectives. They move on to talk about different builds of lists that they have seen out there and what is currently working on the tournament circuit. Next, the boys took some listener requests for competitive lists. This included an Ork list, new Space Marines, Black Templars, and much more. Then, Bill had an interview with Doug Johnson from Table War and they discussed the game that they recently played together. They covered the lists that they ran, some of their tactics going in, and the game itself including the outcome.
Opinion: This was a pretty good show, although I found myself wanting a little more. They started off great but trailed off at the end. With the topic, I was hoping the guys would have gone more in-depth with their thought processes on how to build a competitive list. I did like the list building segment though, so it sort of made up for it. Check it out and decide for yourself.
