Adam here for another week of tabletop podcast reviews! Campaigns, Death Guard, and more Astra Militarum are the topics for this week!

Hey all, Adam here, from TFG Radio, for this week’s reviews!  This week we see a look at Astra Militarum, Firestorm, London Grand Tournament and more! So let’s get on with the reviews!

Scuby & Wells Episode 32 – This episode they talk with Rob Symes, formally of Warhammer TV. It is a very candid talk about his time at Games Workshop, working on Warhammer Live, his reason for leaving, and what he is up to now. If you are a fan of Warhammer Live, a fan of Rob, or just want to know what it’s like to work for GW, other than in a store, download this episode.

Exploding Dice Episode 7 – With the recent sale of the Spartan Games line of product to Warcradle Studios, the guys sit down and talk with Stuart from Warcradle Studios. They talk about the situation with the sale, how Kickstarter backers are affected, and the status of each game with a look to the future. If you play any of the game systems, or are still interested in playing them, give this a listen.

Gargagehammer Episode 178 – This episode actually features a little 40K talk but once past that they delve into the new Firestorm supplement. They go into both the game rules and the actual background of this new supplement. As always its a good deep dive into the new campaign system. There is also a bit of talk about  how the rules intereact with the main game if used in a matched play event. If you’re not sure about getting it for your group, give this a listen and decide for yourself.

Both TFG Radio Bonus Episode 2 and Combatphase Episode 216 feature an interview with Zach Becker, organizer of the London Grand Tournament. If you are interested in organizing a grand tournament, in the case of Combatphase, or want to hear about being a playtester for Games Workshop, in the case of TFG Radio, then give these a listen.
