Opinion: I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I was really looking forward to this show. In this half of their review they covered all of the background story to the events leading up to the Dropsite Massacre and it was totally worth the wait. Without spoiling too much, if you are not caught up on the Horus Hersey novels, this is a great place to get your brief overview of all of these events. It was simply outstanding! Easily my top choice for the week!
Opinion: This episode if for nothing else was worth every minute of it just to hear Steve back on the show. I personally have missed his presence on the show and it was great to see him back in his element! Aside from that, the look at Codex Inquisition was fairly compressive and definitely worth a listening to. Great show guys, welcome back Steve!
Highlights: This week the boys dive into the Inquisition Codex and much more in this installment! They kick off the show with a tournament report where Rob Madeley and Mike report from Reading Warfare at the end of day one. Each of the guys went over their 1500 point lists they took, some of the tactics they used, and a bit about the event itself. They then had a detailed review of each of their first three games, describing the mission that they played, their opponent’s army list, and the overall results of the game. Next, they moved on to day two and again describe each of their games, the lists that they faced, and how the games turned out. In the end, Rob came out on top with a 5-0 record with Necrons! Then, in ‘Evolution’ Dave had a monologue on the topic of ‘awareness in 40K’. This included knowing where you are in the game, the conditions to winning the game, knowledge of the codices and the rules of the game, experience and much more. Then, in ‘Operation Codex’ Dave and Franco breakdown the new Codex: Inquisition! They first covered a little bit about the background fluff of the Inquisition before moving on to discuss how the army works and how they attach to other armies. They then move on to the Warlord Trait tables for each ordo and all of the fun it can bring. They then moved on to the HQ choices including Coteaz and the generic HQ choices and their henchmen. They also cover the transports made available, including the Valkyrie. They then discuss some of the differences from the Grey Knight Codex and they units found in this book. They close out the show by discussing some of the things they believe the Inquisition Codex will bring to the tabletop.
Opinion: Another tournament report lead off a pretty good show. I found Dave’s monologue to be quite insightful and filled with some great tips for those on the more competitive side of this game. Their review of Codex Inquisition was spot on and a model to look at when wanting knowledge on this new addition to our game.
Opinion: I am starting to get used to Bill and Dawson on the show once again and this week’s look at the Adepta Sororitas Codex was fairly good. It was a little behind the times as most outer podcast have done this and it is a re-hash of what we have heard before, but it is still worth a listen with some unique perspectives on the army. I especially like the list building at the end. Good show guys!
