Episode 5 is now up!


We finish off our codex review by looking over the Fast Attack options.
Topics of discussion include; crying in a shower eating cookies, places for flesh gauntlets to explore, and whether nightshields are even a valid thing.

Looking forward to this. Have just downloaded it and will have time to hear it on my way to work.
So far I really enjoyed your podcast, it been great. I don’t really have any constructive critics to ad right now, but you should know that you work with splintermind is appreciated. Keep up the good work

Good job guys. Like always.
Good topic for discussion might be blaster born vs scourges

Interesting and amusing! I like the guest idea, adds a hobby angle as well as the tactical side of it. I think that's a great idea to keep the show varied. Also perhaps discussing or summarising some of the more popular discussions on the thread regarding tactics or discussions would also be interesting, like a depraved news channel!

That would be an interesting consideration to crunch the numbers on. I'll keep it in mind for an Advice Archon segment.

We have definitely done some of this already as I know I've mentioned a few. We do occasionally try to give shout outs to ongoing events on the forums here - Brian and I will chat about this and see what we come up with. I'm thinking it would need to just be an 'occasionally' type of thing even if we did it though.

Yeah the forum plugging is great Razz But that's what I mean, occasional food for thought style discussions if there is time is always nice and interesting. But I do thoroughly enjoy this, gives me a good 45 mins at work where I can listen to it and pretend to be on an important business call Razz

Sadly no stick in the eye, but I'll take a flesh gauntlet... well, not like that but you know what I mean Razz

Excellent episode once again.

Do you have any thoughts on Dark lances with scourges, you pay 40 points a lance overall with no solarite which is more or less the same as a ravager per lance.

I have no preconceptions, though I feel you will say ravager, just wondering of your thoughts.

Looking forward to whenever the next gem falls our way!

And I get them on a unit that I am also paying a jump infantry tax for - when I'll never move them.
If I wanted to do that I'd go Trueborn before I went Scourge.

I'd go Ravager before either Razz

I thought as much but sometimes pig will fly (or waddle off a cliff and glide for a while..) Razz

Really enjoying the shows. Sorry to hear that it will be moving to monthly but I guess to a point that is to be expected as filling a weekly show with just Dark Eldar talk would be challenging once the new releases had been covered.

Anyway, keep up the great work!

I like to mix it up? Razz Variety is the spice of life.

Great episode guys. So sorry to hear you ran into more problems with your Void Raven ESE! I fixed all mine... not sure if you read my latest post in my project but I mixed up the back pieces between the bombadier and the pilot. Got a new one and it worked like a charm!

Don't give up on the VR just yet... I'm gonna do a series of games with an escort flyer (WWII style) and see how it goes. I can tell you this my opponents were quaking in their boots when I told them what it did... (though I was quaking in my boots at the pts price).

@ Thor... really liked your closing thoughts on the Codex. I feel your pain on the assault units as well. Its one of the reasons I returned to DE when the 5th ed. book dropped. I do think there is still a place for them though and I'm determined to make them work. I'm convinced that if Eldar players and DE players can learn to master their assault units (as complimentary pieces to a shooty army) it'll really unlock a whole new power level. Only time will tell though.

Great episode guys really looking forward to the next one, I'm sure it'll be the best yet! Cool

I very much enjoyed it. Especially the reminder that a flesh gauntlet can be closed to a fist. That was inspired.

But there were no sticks in the eye, no "all the ham," and I think only one "at the end of the day." It's like you don't want me to write a Splintermind drinking game. Smile (Actually, if I add in references to the nerf snuff room, I think it'll be fine.)

Hey ESE and Thor. I know they are not in the new codex but anyway to do a splintermind with forgeworld models like the Tantalus? Would you guys even use something like that? Or are they not worth it?

I could see covering those models at some point. Actually, I might use the old,"But I have to buy them......for the show!" excuse with my wife. lol!

Only got to listen to this last night, and I share other's view that I'm sad it's moving to monthly, though I can completely understand why, it must be a lot of works going through everything and figuring out everything you want to include then editing it.

Great work though!

Late to join the party - just got round to listening to all the episodes over the last few days and, wow, awesome effort! The Codex walkthrough was really interesting and I expect I'll be using it extensively if and when I get round to updating my DE unit guide. Unless I just sub-contract the whole enterprise to you two...
