It's the two year anniversary episode! Thor is back as we are joined by our favorite returning third chair Alex to talk recent changes by GW, supplements, and recap that questionable piece of fluff from the Death Masque box. We are also joined by Lawrence from Tabletop Tactics for a special interview where he talks about the list and tactics used to win his third No Retreat championship in a row!

 After month+ delay caused by real life and exploding laptops, we're back! (Okay....Brian is back while Thor's work is killing him) With Thor out Brian lets his hobby and real life ADHD take Splintermind back to the good ol' days of the Horus Heresy as he talks 30K gaming with Bill from the Bay Area Horus Heresy Gamers Facebook group. Returning guest Andrew (Woozl from TDC) joins us to help out with a listener request for an True Kin escalation league list. With Brian flying solo on a brand new laptop and without old pre-edited bumper tracks there's a bit of dodgy audio and little bit of salty language, but a fun time nonetheless.

We are joined by very special guests Skari from the SkaredCast YouTube channel and Lawrence Baker from Tabletop Tactics to talk Dark Eldar tactics! With all of the doom and gloom over passengers of jinking transports having to snapfire and other silliness we thought it was time to bring on a couple of heavy hitters that have been winning consistently with Dark Eldar in today's crazy meta. This is our best tactics episode to date!

We are joined by Alex (Cavalier AVA from the Dark City) to review the Corsair list form Imperial Armour 11. We talk list entries, modeling, and the sad, sad puppy that is Dissonance weaponry. This episode is nearly three weeks late due to a Google search for Superguppies and real life challenges. Splintermind: Always late, but worth the wait!

Join host Brian as he interviews Justin from the It Will Not Die podcast, James Stagg from the 1HourANight Facebook page, Adam AKA Loopy from the Independent Characters Hobby Progress Challenge, Spellcheck from Thedarkcity.net, and a very reluctant unnamed guest as we talk staying motivated in the hobby in 2016! At the end of the episode we finally draw the winners of the iTunes review promotion. Winners: Please contact us through the Facebook page or via PM at Thedarkcity.net!
