After YEARS of waiting the Death Guard are getting their own codex and Primarch!  We go over everything.

After YEARS of waiting the Death Guard are getting their own codex and a Primarch straight from the warp!  New figures, new strategems, new rules, new powers… We go over everything.





Hey hey,

Death Guard have been a favorite of mine for a long time.  It is an incredible good feeling to hold this book in my hands.  We kick off the show talking about Mortarion.  He is a beast!  This guy is more expensive than Magnus and I think you’ll hear why.


The book shows us tons of new figures and character models.  We will be getting even more new kits!!   We go over some of the new unit rules – like the Myphitic Blight-Hauler – a land based version of the Foetid Bloat-Drone.

People are going to enjoy this dex.  Pox Walkers are still a strong troop choice.  On top of the wall of pus Death Guard can create the Infantry and Helbrute units can also move and fire heavy weapons at no penalty.   We didn’t expressly call that out on the show, I apologize.  You can also see what on the Warhammer community page here.

We welcome The Table of Ultimate Gaming as a sponsor this week.  Please check out their KickStarter.  These guys are publishing constant updates and keeping their backers informed and in touch.

They have a KickStarter going on right now. It fully funded in the first 5 minutes. That really speaks to the quality and design of this table. Please check out the pics below and their KickStarter page!




The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Frontline Gaming. Their new mats are now hot off the presses and getting ready to be shipped. Please check them out, even if you already have a game mat. Their new styles are very impressive. If you haven’t already get your tickets NOW for the mega Las Vegas Open.

We talk about gore, pox and sores on this finishing moves.  I know we’ve covered something similar before but this seemed appropriate.

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.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
