Episode 145: Listener Mail Extravaganza

It finally happened – a pause between releases! Gathering Storm 3 is coming next week, but in the meantime we have a gap and a lot of fan-submitted lists to work through – it’s a match made in podcaster heaven. In this episode, we work through 5 listener-submitted lists and give our opinions and suggestions. We also discuss a recent Midwest Conquest practice tournament we had a chance to participate in, celebrate the warm weather and the ability to prime models, and answer our normal slate of listener mail as well. Next episode, we’re off to Macragge!

        Actually, it turns out that she doesn’t anymore. Her Miraculous Intervention is no longer an Act of Faith.

        Which means that the most holy of Sisters, beacon of the Imperial Faith, denies her own faction the ability to use that faith if she joins a unit of them. *facepalm*

    I have to agree with Bruce’s point, even for a ‘new player’, it takes literally ONE sentence of explanation (“yeah some units have various/different versions in the different books, I’m using this one…”) to make the point clear.

    I know you guys are running tournies now, and I sympathize with the amount of work you have, chosen, to do for the sake of a good event… but most people don’t care about that, and it isn’t the fault of GW either.

    Say – I have this book, I don’t want to buy another so I’ll use this version; or – that other version works better with my army’s narrative so I’ll use that one; or – the rules from this book fit better in my current list — “hey bud I am using the rules from WoM just an FYI”. Easy.

    This is still a social game, and I get we’re all nerds, but even in the most sterile “competitive” scene, some form of minor human communication is quite beneficial.
