We know that folks like discussing Successor Chapters and it has been a while since we talked about a fresh batch. In this episode, we chose to use an excessively arbitrary method of picking the chapters for our topic. Oddly enough, this provided some decent contrast in philosophy and combat doctrine. We also discuss how we thought these Chapters would be best represented on the tabletop.
As is quite often this time of year, we were quite busy. Still, we were able to get together to chat life, hobby progress, games, and Warhammer.
Tech Priest Manipulus Mark has joined us to tell us about the lovingly-crafted narrative for his Forge World. This includes a narrative for both his Adeptus Mechanicus force and their Knight allies.
Jason has been playing the new Kill Team and we got together to talk about the new campaign rules. We also talked a bit about Warhammer+ and bring you Phil's review on the new Death Korps models.

We have read through the second wave of Warzone Charadon lore and the Crusade rules and in this episode we cover both. Look to other podcasts or future episodes of our show for coverage on the other supplemental rules and missions. We also had an interview with Chris Morgan about his new Narrative-themed 40k podcast.
Mark joins us to discuss the lore, hobby, and rules of his Primaris Warhounds army.

Welcome to the annual $#!t show production of Masters of the Forge. This time we are joined by Brian, Carl, and Eric to talk about stuff that's on our minds. As with other $#!t show productions, his episode is explicit.
If you're interested in running a Warhammer 40k army that worships one of the two main interpretations of the Emperor's divinity, this is the episode for you! In this one, we discuss the Crusade content for the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Adepta Sororitas.
We've got a real crunchy barn-burner this episode with some rules for crafting custom 40k Characters. We also chat about the new edition Age of Sigmar including Path to Glory and gameplay feedback from Dave, Kendrick, and Tucker.
Our saturation of all things fecund and vile continues with some Black Library content this time. We were lucky enough to be joined by author, David Annandale to chat about his Warhammer Horror novel, Deacon of Wounds. We discussed the novel itself, of course, but also Warhammer Horror and writing in general.
Deacon of Wounds on Black Library:

In this packed episode, we chat with Jon about the narrative for his Death Guard army, the Dead Men. We've also come up with some custom rules to go with the theme of his army including a vehicle-heavy army of renown and a narrative mission.
We have taken the time to pull apart the Plague Purge Crusade Mission Pack into its constituent parts and discuss them in detail. We'll be using this information to help us build custom missions and give advice in the future.
We were joined in this one by Brian from the Splintermind podcast to discuss the new Crusade content for Drukhari.
We go from guarded yet hopeful to punchy yet relieved in this monster 4 hour-ish episode. In this one, we discuss the lore and Crusade content for War Zone Charadon Act I: The Book of Rust and the accompanying White Dwarf Issues 460, 461, and 462.
We were joined in this episode by Jedidiah to chat about the custom lore he devised for his Tyranids: Hive Fleet Aboleth.
With the new Dark Angels Codex having just been released, we decided to delve not only into the Crusade content therein, but also take a more detailed dive into the relationship between the Unforgiven and the Space Wolves.
We were lucky to be joined by Ben to hear about his Chaos warband, a rag-tag group of ne'er-do-wells from the aptly named Cortex Hive. We talk about the lore, Crusade list, and hobby for this imaginative force.
Detailed examples of conflicts which feature two non-human factions aren't very common. The story of the Fall of Shadowbrink comes from the 6th edition Tyranids codex and pits Hive Fleet Leviathan versus an alliance of Chaos Daemons. In this episode, we chat about the lore and playing it out on your tabletop with a 4-game narrative.
We were joined by long-time Blood Angels enthusiast, John, to discuss how the lore and rules of the Blood Angels have evolved in the new Codex. We also discussed the Crusade rules and, of course, generated some pretty sweet names in this monster episode.
We're ready for the hellscape of the 2nd decade of M3 to be a memory and we want nothing more than to look to the future with hope and determination. In this episode we talk about our hobby progress as always and briefly go over the third installment of Flashpoint Argovon. For our main content, we've got a Crusade game featuring Jason's Tzeentch forces assaulting a small underground Imperial outpost and a discussion of our intentions and dreams for 2021 including contributions from our...
The end is nigh and it's time to start planning your gaming in 2021. If you've got a big group of folks with whom you play, why not try out Flashpoints? We delve into the first two installments of the 3-part Flashpoint Argovon from White Dwarfs 457 and 458.

In this episode, we finally get around to chatting in detail about the new Codex layout and faction-specific Crusade materials. We also look at the evolution of the recent Space Wolf lore. Don't forget to check out our previous episodes if you want more details about the Space Wolves.
We couldn't help but take the opportunity gush over how much we loved Mike Brooks' fun and well-received novel, Brutal Kunnin. We also bring you a battle report from our Crusade campaign and some new rules for Squigs.
The Snakebites are a surprisingly nuanced Ork clan which might be a great deal more important to the kultur than you might think. In this episode we discuss this fascinating clan in the lore, on the tabletop, and in the hobby.
In addition to the usual shenanigans, we are joined by Gav Thorpe to discuss his novel, Indomitus. Prior to that, we talk about the Crusade game they played using a scenario from the Beyond the Veil mission pack. We also have a custom scenario designed to help players learn 9th edition that we was inspired by a game played by Matt from the Adeptus Terra Podcast.
