Heroes assemble! In this episode, current #1 ITC Ranked Grey Knight Shaylynn Allen joins Andrew in this edition of The Good, The Bad, And the Ugly. Shay breaks down the strong units to build your list around, the stinkers to avoid, and the nasty combinations available for the boys in silver.

Welcome, Heroes, to another exciting chapter in the Heroic Intervention Saga! Matt Root, 2016-17 ITC Champ, helps break down the Chaos Space Marine Codex in this Good the Bad and the Ugly episode! And despite Andrew's best efforts to Deny the Witch, Matt reduces Andrew to a gibbering Chaos Spawn ranting and raving about Tyranids. What? I don't know. You'll just have to listen to find out!

Sorry it took so long to upload this episode but it's finally arrived! Andrew and Kim give a brief overview of the Chapter Tactics, Warlord Traits, and Stratagems from the brand spanking new Space Marine Codex. They also breakdown some of the top BAO lists and discuss what it reveals about the meta so far in 8th Edition. Thanks for listening!

Descending from the skies in his XV86 Coldstar suit, our original Hall of Heroes member, Nikhil Sinha, joins Andrew to talk about Tau! He's our resident Tau aficionado and all around awesome guy (and fellow VFX artist!) and he's here to help us break down the 8th Edition Tau Index. While the meta seems to be shifting every other day, we do our best to identify the winners, the stinkers and the downright nasty combos that the Tau have to offer. Enjoy!

Yay, Chad is back!! And he weighs in on 8th Edition - will we get salty or sweet Chad? Or some DELICIOUS combination of the two? You'll have to listen and find out! We talk about hobby, games played, the *explosive* growth of the game, the meta, and more!

Have we got the episode for you! You like Hobby? We've got hobby! You like hearing about games played?! We've played some games (well... MOST of us did!). Do you like crazy news and rumors, ITC tournament FAQs for 8e, plans for our armies, and much more?! Well buckle up amigos, and join Kim and Andrew on episode 49 of the Heroic Intervention Podcast!

So, what are YOUR top 3 things you're happy to see die in a fire as we head into 8th edition? Well Andrew gives you his top 3 in this episode in which we shove 7th Edition off to sea, light its bloated corpse on fire, all to the sound of taps being played by a single trumpet. Be excited folks, 8th Edition Cometh!

The information just keeps on hitting us like a thermal canon fired directly into our brain, and we're not so sure we can handle it. But rather than diving into the new rules, in Episode 47 we focus on the Faction... Focus articles. We then combine it with some of the new rules announcements, take the square root of the hypotenuse of the new Redemptor Dreadnought's power fist, and attempt to have a discussion. Enjoy!

May 18, 2017

Hall of Heroes member Kim joins the crew to TRY and keep up with the 8th Edition news firehose! But we do more than just list the rules, we give our "hard hitting", beer and pretzels analysis of how it might effect the game we all know and love. So grab your hobby gear, your favorite frosty beverage, and enjoy!
