Welcome to another “This Week in 40K Podcasting,”
Here is this week’s top 5!
The Independent Characters – Episode 26 ***Explicit Warning***
Highlights: This week, the guys are fresh back from their amazing coverage at Adepticon! They open up the show with some hobby progress and some painting. They move on to talk about some of the games that they have played, including their time at Adepticon! In the next segment, they guys discuss their team tournament experience and what it was like to cover the top tables in the 40K Championships. In the next segment, the guys run some of the interviews they did at Adepticon, first up was an interview with Dave Taylor! Next up was an interview with Dan Abnett!
Opinion: Overall, this was an outstanding podcast. First, if you have not seen their coverage of the 40K Tournament at Adeptiocn, I highly recommended it! So hearing about the background of that coverage was pretty interesting. Not to mention an interview with Dave Taylor and Dan Abnett! Great work guys!
The Eternal Warriors – Episode 16 ***Explicit Warning***
Highlights: This week, the guys are post Adeptiocn (some more worse for the wear then others) and they start off with what they have been doing lately, some hobby, some games, and some books read. They also give congratulations to Tony, the 40K Championship winner. They move on to talk about GW shutting down their medal models and Forgeworld Releases. Next up was a roundtable discussion with multiple hosts of podcast from the Hobby Talk Network, Carl from the ICs, Phil from the Warbanner, Bill and Tor from IVC, Hockey Hyper and so many more! They close out the show with some comments on some recent iTunes reviews.
Opinion: Overall this was a great podcast! The internet round table was just amazing, to hear all of these amazing people, all self-less dedicated podcasters all in one place, all together and talking podcasting and 40K was a real treat. It sounds like it was a blast and I wish I were there! Great work guys!
Imperial Vox Cast – Episode 49 ***Explicit Warning***
Highlights: This week, Bill is joined by Dawson and Silas. They open up the show with what they have been doing lately in the hobby, which included painting and prepping for Adepticon. They then move on to talk about their Adepticon experience and all of the things that they say and did while there. They then more on to talk about the games they have played away from Adepticon. Lastly, they talk about a tournament that Silas and Dawson recently attended and this moves into a great discussion about List Checking at events and cheating.
Opinion: This was a really good podcast. While I really liked their review of Adepticon, their talk about list checking at tournaments was outstanding. I am totally in their camp with some of the changes they want to see made at event. I will be the first to throw my vote in for Czar Silas to rule over the tournament circuit! Good work gang!
Highlights: This week is all about Salute 2011! The guys open up their show with what they have been doing and some Overlords news. They move on to various things recorded live at Salute 2011. Shagga Warboss hosted Spru Peter this week and talked about his converted Dread Knights. They go back to their live Salute coverage with an interview with Chris Wraight from the Black Library.
Opinion: I am always a big fan of events I could not attend and hearing the experiences that others had there. This was a really good podcast and the Spru Peter segment was awesome. I someday hope to attend this massive convention in the UK! Great work guys!
Highlights: Holy Cow, a 5 Hour show! This week, the gang starts off the show with “This Week in Gaming”. Pat talks blogs and 40K Nation, Dave checks in from 40UK and has his coverage of the Open War tournament. They continue their coverage of the Soul Reapers Codex talking about the Troops selections. They close out the show with part one of the Codex Grey Knights tactical Review.
Opinion: This was a monster of a show! It was good in that it had everything I want in an 11th Company episode, but it was really, really long. I have been chomping at the bit to hear this coverage of the Grey Knights Codex and this did not disappoint, this was out standing. So overall, I really liked this episode but really could have done with a bit less this week.

For those of you who do not know me or how I rate 40K podcasts, I will direct you here to my blog with a detailed explanation here.
First, I want to say sorry for a less then in-depth coverage this week, this was my last week at my old job and I had a ton of training to do this week. The ol’Eviled209 is taking a break next week as he is starting a new job. So there will be no “This Week in 40K Podcasting” next week. Sorry to all the podcast I will miss reviewing next week.
So, that is it for This Week in 40K podcasting, thanks for reading. Got a podcast all about 40K, or mostly 40K that I am not listening to? Let me know about it, [email protected] and I’ll be happy to add you to my listening schedule! Disagree with my review? Post comments for that too!
