Opinion: First, I do not know what I am going to do the new couple of months without the Heroic 28s. Kenny is moving and the boys will not be able to record until he is settled. So we may not hear from them until the Railhead Rumble. Next, this was just an outstanding podcast! Some people may have forgotten how powerful this army still is, even in 6th Edition. This was a great start on a review for a top notch army. Nice work guys!
Opinion: This show also suffered a bit from being about a week out of date, and Neil acknowledges this at the very beginning. This is very evident in the FAQ section at the end of the show, as they really get some rules incorrect as per the new FAQs. However, despite that the show was still pretty good. Goatboy is one of my favorite people on the web (call me bias) and hearing from Alex Fennel was a real treat. And of course I was really looking forward to what the guys had to say about the new Dark Angels. I am sure that there is more to come on that subject.
Highlights: This week the boys dove head first into the new Codex: Dark Angels! They open up the show with an explanation on where they have been for the last month and a review of some of the Digital GW products. They move on to their review of Codex Dark Angels, opening up with the FAQ that released two days after the release. They then took a look at some of the Special Rules of the army before moving on to the HQ choices and all of the things it can unlock within the Codex. They then moved on to talk about the units of the Codex, starting with the Troop choices and moved on to the Fast Attack, Elites, and Heavy support choices. They spend quite a bit of time reviewing the new shiny units from the codex like the Black Knights and the new Flyers! They also did a great job looking at all of the named Characters from this book. They then gave their overall evaluations of the codex itself, including its overall power level, balance level, and new model range. They closed out the show with their ‘Hobby Progress’ where the discussed what they have been doing lately in the last month on the hobby work.
Opinion: Glad to have these guys back after a small break for the holidays. This week’s show was a really good overview of Codex Dark Angels and I highly recommend it. I have really become a big fan of their codex reviews and this one hit on all of the big things found in the book. If you are looking a good review of the DA, here is a good place to go. Nice job guys!
Highlights: This week the boys opened up their show with the ‘News’, where they covered the Dark Angels release. This rolled into what they have been doing lately, in gaming and the hobby. Next, the guys go through their first impressions of the new Dark Angels codex. They cover the look and feel of the book itself, the digital copy of the Codex, and a little about the army itself. They looked at some of the Special Rules for the DA, some of the units and the differences from your stock Codex Marine, and of course the DA specific units like Deathwing, Ravenwing, and the new flyers! Steve also talked about his game against Dark Angels, and how ridiculous his IG list really is. They closed out the show by answering some questions and comments on the new DA from their Facebook fans!
Opinion: This was a Dark Angels focused show this week for the Overlords. I really enjoyed the boy’s point of view for this book, including Steve’s look at the digital version of the book. This was a good quick look at the book with the Overlords flavor. Good show guys!
