Masters of the Forge - Episode 016

From the dominion of the Old Ones to the reign of mankind, the story of space travel in the setting of 40k is also the story of the cultures of the Galaxy themselves.  In this episode, we explore how the myriad species in the Galaxy convey themselves across the black emptiness of space.  We also provide a couple of Warhammer 40,000 missions which you can use to link your narrative to space travel.

The Officio Assassinorum penetrates into areas where other forces of the Imperium cannot or will not.  They are the silent stalkers who execute Heretic, Xenos, and Traitor alike with nary a drop of righteous blood spilled.  Join us as we delve into the mysterious world of the Officio Assassinorum with discussions on the background of these characters as well as ways to narratively include them in your armies.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 010

We've delved into the Black Library one more time for another show focusing on bringing a novel to life on the tabletop.  This time it's a continuation of the Damnos saga with Spear of Macragge and a re-visit of the Spearhead rules. BIG TIME SPOILER ALERT! Also we have Campaign Talk, and, of course, our weeks.  We had fun reading and discussing this book and we hope you enjoy our discussion about it.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 007

"Justice without force is powerless.  Force without justice is tyranny." - Blaise Pascal

This episode is all about a Space Marines Chapter created by Adam called the Star Eagles. We also discuss some tips on what to do when developing your own army fluff; for space marines in particular.  Also, of course, we discuss our weeks in the hobby.

I forgot to mention that the great Episode 66 of the Independent Characters was another inspiration for this army.
