Masters of the Forge Warhammer 40k Podcast | Radio

How many beloved Warhammer 40,000 units have disappeared from codices since the genesis of the game? We say "Too many!" This episode begins our recurring segment which explores these forotten units and tries to bring them to life on the tabletop.  In addition, we discuss some of the hidden gems in old codices and bring you an updated mission from the old Daemonhunters codex.  As usual, we also give you our hobby and gaming progress.  Please try out the mission and units and we shall incorporate your feedback into the rules.

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 008

While the topical segment of this episode does feature Star Eagles-related content, with some nemeses created by all three hosts, it should prove interesting. Also, Episode 8 features our first Campaign Talk segment with special guest, Inquisitor Steve.

"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.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 005

Another fine episode of Masters of the Forge advances implacably across the wind-swept, arctic desolation of the world of 40k podcasting! This week's episode brings us back to our "Bring a 40k Novel to Life on the Tabletop" format with "Fall of Damnos" by Nick Kyme.  We are all duly impressed with the human freedom fighters on Damnos as well as the surprising level of depth written into the character of the Necrons. As usual, the hosts discuss their weeks and the recent happenings in the 40k community. Thanks for joining us!
