Traitors Gonna Trait & Hollywood Drama – FTN

Carl Tuttle from the Independent Characters joins us and we talk to the man behind Star Trek Axanar, Alec Peters!

Hey Guys, Episode 160 is here!


In the first segment of this episodes I sit down with Alec Peters at Dragon Con in Atlanta, GA.   Alec has been on the show before so you may be familiar with his fan film Star Trek Axanar.   He’s found himself in the middle of a bit of controversy with Paramount Studios and CBS.

Alec is as candid as he can be about the details of what is going on with the litigation and the support he has gotten from several big name Hollywood people.  Hearing about this journey and the overwhelming fan support he has gotten is pretty fascinating.   I hope you agree.  I always enjoy talking with Alec.

Instead of cutting our normal 40k talk short we ramped it up by bringing in one of the best podcasters alive, Carl Tuttle, from the Independent Characters show.  He is a big time Chaos fan and helps us talk about the real winners from the latest codex supplement, Traitor’s Hate.

The big winners here are the are the Chaos Warband formation, that makes everything Objective Secured, the Terminator Annihilation Force and the Raptor Talon.

I don’t think anyone expected to be saying that Raptors or Warp Talons would be making it onto the main stage.  The ability to drop in quality squads and then assault the same turn is pretty disruptive.  The Terminator formation is surprising too.  I think it is going to put a big cramp in the side of some Gladius players.


It is pretty easy to get disappointed when an anticipated supplement like this rolls out and it doesn’t have the stuff in it, like free transports or quality wargear, like other codexes have.  Don’t let that keep you from looking for hidden power in this book.  The CSM got a HUGE power boost here.  The addition of the Angels of Death Psychic powers is big time and that shouldn’t go unstated.

Being able to lower the invul save or grant their own squads Fortune is going to win a lot of games.  I know… it’s not always easy to get the powers you want but competitive chaos players are already taking a fair amount of psykers for the Cabal.  This is right in line with that.

This supplement makes every build of chaos – including forge world renegades and daemon builds MORE powerful and more versatile.  Don’t sell it short because you don’t get free rhinos.

FTN mostly focuses on Warhammer 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.
