It's the two year anniversary episode! Thor is back as we are joined by our favorite returning third chair Alex to talk recent changes by GW, supplements, and recap that questionable piece of fluff from the Death Masque box. We are also joined by Lawrence from Tabletop Tactics for a special interview where he talks about the list and tactics used to win his third No Retreat championship in a row!

It makes me so happy whenever I hear KMFDM or Ministry in these.

Great episode guys!

My vote for the Optimistic Archon section would be Incubi (and possibly Drazhar). IMHO they are the coolest looking models in the whole army and it would be great to hear from you guys how best to make them work.

As usual I enjoyed listening to the pod casts.

I think the obvious choices for the Optimistic Archon would be the Voidraven Bomber, Incubi, wyches, Beastmasters, Hellions, and Mandrakes.

As an aside, Artemus (sp?) knew the Eldar were on the moon to stop Eldrad just because he had "Jedi" intuition they were there...

I don't own it and haven't read it, but didn't he also disobey a direct order so he could follow his hunch?

Thank you!

Mandrakes will be first, Incubi seem to be the favorite so far for the following month... I'd love to figure out how to use the Voidraven now that I own two of the, Evil or Very Mad

And man, that Jedi intuition angle still has me convinced that I did the right thing by not buying Death Masque Razz

Oh, and thank you to everyone for not being annoyed by my voice. That cold was brutal!

I like to think that immediately after Death Masque, Captain Artemis was promptly executed for his disobedience. Or better yet, mindwiped and made into a servitor. I may need to convert a model.

That's how the Imperium works: the only difference between the hero and the heretic is whether they won.

Sooooo happy to hear Reaver Jetbikes tearing it up. Admittedly, I would not have thought to put the blasters on the them though. Cluster Caltrops is the obvious butter on that unit.

He had both - after all, why have one upgrade when you can have two at twice the price?!

On the Lord of War thing, I would actually prefer if they did something completely different for us. I think the "Gargantuan Talos/Grot" could be possible but that's rather bland and I can't imagine it really fitting into the army gameplay wise. Vect would be cool, but unless he is loaded with a crap ton of special rules I can't imagine him being as good as other LoW options.

I would LOVE if they expand on the lovecraftian aspect of the DE and let us summon a giant monstrosity from forbidden zones of the webway. Just like the stable Dark Gate that does not close after a fraction of a second. Or perhaps just a colossal shadow-being from Aelindrach that has Infiltrate and provides Night Fighting.

*Wishing*

I would love to see something like a huge monster or bigger gunboat/ ravager. But maybe a lord of war that buffed the army would be more in character with the dark elder theme. A haemoculus Coven machine like the vampire count mortis engine comes to mind, buffing the power from pain rule or something vehicle/character that helped us survive.

I'd really like an optimistic Archon to feature Incubi because I really like their models and would love to field them.

Love the Incubi models too. Would like to see an Optiistic Archon article on using Hellions too, like Incubi, the models and fluff are brilliant.

Outstanding podcast. Looking forward to the next episode.

I second the Incubi and would find the beasts interesting as well.

Also, when will the new podcast be uploaded? I got a long fly on Tuesday and it would be great if I could listen to Splintermind in the meantime ^^

Ooops! I never loaded Episode 29.... Will do now!

Episode 30 has been delayed (again) due to warp storm interference, or just a bad internet connection.

This was my first time listening to your podcast. It was great! Having Lawrence from Tabletop Tactics discuss how he won with DE did a ton to help get me warmed up to the my new 2017 army.
My only critique would be the discussion of the FAQ. Whilst I see and appreciate why being forced to snapfire from transports that jinked would be a hard burden for DE (and necrons to a lesser extent), I was disappointed that you weren't quite as charitable to the Tyranids massive nerf to Monstrous Creatures. They are the army I come from for the past 3 years. They are as dependent on cover saves as the DE are. I can live with the fact that flying monstrous creatures no longer get a cover save in ruins, but the nerf to all monstrous creatures just absolutely destroys 'nids. Unlike DE, we are an extremely slow army outside of our flyers. With no access to any invulnerable saves, low WS, low Initiative, and usually 3 attacks are MCs were barely playable as is. Now that they need 25% obscured to get a cover save means they either have to slog through cover to get to the enemy or not get a cover save at all. Wraithknights and Stormsurges should not get toe-in-cover. Heck, I think riptides should be walkers, but the point is I even lobbied for Dark Eldar to not have to snapshoot from jinking transports. I would hope other bottom dwelling codex brethren would do the same for others.
Not a criticism, just an observation. Loved the podcast. Made it so much more enjoyable building my DE army the past 10 days. I'm taking them to a major ITC event the end of March so I have a ton to learn in a short time.
