Welcome aboard! I highly recommend the Splintermind podcast (it's got it's own section on this forum) they've got great tactics episodes like 24: Skari and the Spider and 16: Realspace Raiding for Noobs and also great lore episodes like The True Kin Through the Ages (Episodes 17 and 18).
My 8th edition fandex is complete enough for appraisal (note that I completed it before any previews had been released) . I'm sure there are inconsistencies, please let me know where they lie as you find them. Thank you! Click here for fandex
