After the Summer of Lore (TM) we're back to our usual holistic approach to all things 30k! In this episode, we welcome Ian and Chris who have led the charge in creating an 8th edition ruleset for the Horus Heresy. In Painting Black ... and Other Colours, Myles leads us through painting the loyalist Primarchs, and we try to stay polite about the blue one. We then talk to one of the creators of The Death of Hope, a brilliant looking 30k fan film project. In Tales of Heresy we analyse the amazing graphic novel Macragge's Honour by Dan Abnett and Neil Roberts. And finally, we close out with the Vox-Box and Two-Week Hobby Challenge.

Finally, we get to the main course of our coverage of The Master of Mankind by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. In this episode, we attempt to unpack what the book tells us about the title character, the Emperor.

And in Painting White ... and Other Colours Myles takes us through painting the ever-challenging armour of the Khan's legion. Thanks for listening!

Battle of Helopherion Episode 4: Walk in Hell

For weeks, the war on the planet Helopherion has been mired in the quiet terror of trench warfare. But it was only a matter of time before the Merchant Households unleashed a new offensive on the beleaguered IVth Legion and its Volgan allies. In this episode of the Age of Darkness' battlecasts, the Knights of House Tyrannik join the war and attempt to smash through the redoubtable defenses dug in by the Iron Warriors.

Episode 58: Alternate Heresy Spectacular!

A few weeks ago we announced our Alternate Heresy Competition, and we were overwhelmed by the both the number and quality of the entries! So much so that to avoid putting out a 6 hour episode, we are forced to take a breather from our The Master of Mankind coverage to devote our full attention to discussing the myriad ways that the Horus Heresy could have turned out differently! To help us in the agonizing task of judging this competition, we are once again joined by Kenny from Combat Phase! We hope you all enjoy listening to these insanely creative and thought-provoking theories!

Episode 56: Choosing the Right Brush, and The Master of Mankind Part I

The Master of Mankind. The most requested book we've ever had. So much so that we are forced to make an exception to our usual one-year spoiler free period. In Episode 56 we begin our summer Tales of Heresy series by discussing ADB's master work about the War in the Webway. In Painting Black ... And Other Colours Myles talks about that most essential tool in the hobbyists belt, the humble brush. We then close out with the Vox-Box and Two-Week Hobby Challenge. The End of Empires!!!

Battle of Helopherion Episode 3: The Guns of Avarok

At the Battle of the Thadrik River, the Merchant Households' offensive against the Volgan Cossacks and Iron Warriors was blunted and the war for Helopherion settled into a stalemate. In an attempt to regain the advantage, Helena Gauntë demanded reinforcements, and now, finally,  the relief fleet has arrived. In this long-delayed installment of the Battle of Helopherion, the Iron Warriors and Volgans raid a orbital defence battery emplacement that has sprung into life and begun firing at the IVth Legion fleet. After this Zone Mortalis (-ish) battle, the stage is set for an epic engagement in the void using the Battlefleet Gothic rules.

Battle of Helopherion Campaign Recap: Operation Vigilance

With the long overdue third episode of the Helopherion Campaign series dropping this week, we thought it would be a good idea to provide a recap of the first two episodes, which covered the initial phase of the war, known as Operation Vigilance. Let us know in the comments if you want more of this kind of article in support of the Battlecasts!

Operation Vigilance

Household Aircraft Over Fort Kasrik, 165.007.M31

Part of the Helios Theatre of the First Interlegionary War 

Date: 162.007.M31 – 175.007.M31

Location: Helopherion, Helios Sector, Segmentum Tempestus

Result: Strategic Stalemate


Belligerents:  
Merchant Households of Helios Prime
IVth Legion Astartes
Volgan Mechanicum

Commanders and Leaders:
Duke Arnaxcium Seloquitus
Duchess Helena Gauntë
Warsmith Krios Dracontites
Marshall Vladislav Tretiak

Strength:
IVth Merchant Household (Helios Prime)
2,000,000 personnel
3,800 Armoured Vehicles
1,300 Guns

7,500 Aircraft
XIIIth Merchant Household (Helios Prime)
3,000,000 personnel
15,200 Armoured Vehicles
3,500 Guns

4,640 Aircraft
Initially:
Eighth Forge Guards Army (Volganis V)
1,200,000 personnel
12,390 Armoured Vehicles
5,515 Guns
8,850 Aircraft

Reinforcements (on 170.007.M31):
64th Grand Battalion (IVth Legion)

c. 230,000 killed and missing
c. 380,000 wounded and sick

Background
Due to the vagaries of astrotelepathic communication, the Helios Sector did not receive word of the Warmaster’s rebellion and subsequent routing of three loyalist legions on the black sands of Istvaan V for several months. When news reached the courts of the Merchant Households on the capital world, the duchesses and dukes agreed to suppress this information from the population until they could decide on a course of action. In their arrogance they did not expect other actors within the sector to have their own ways of learning what was transpiring in the wider Imperium...

Episode 52 : Inferno Part IV: Painting and Understanding the Custodes, and Prospero Burns Debate

In the fourth part of our Inferno coverage, we finally begin to tackle the redoubtable Talons of the Emperor, by analyzing the Emperor's praetorians, the Custodes. In this we are aided by Mark's experience winning the Adepticon friendly tournament with his golden boys. In Painting Black … and other Colours we continue our discussion of the Custodes by talking about how to achieve that perfect gold colour on your models. We then host our first-ever Age of Darkness debate, as we are joined by Max from Road to Terra and Jake from Covenant of Fire to settle the question “is Prospero Burns good” once and for all!

Two-Week Hobby Challenge, 14 January to 28 January

As mentioned on the show, from now on we'll be posting the successful Two-Week Hobby Challenges onto our blog! This allows us to better showcase the great work the community is doing, and as the blog posts will come out closer to when the challenges are actually due (rather than when the episode drops), it will hopefully make the whole thing slightly less confusing! At the end of this post there is also the Challenge Calendar to keep track of when the phases start and end!
