We are very excited to present our interview with Black Library author Gav Thorpe discussing his latest book Jain Zar! Join Alex, Thor, and Brian as we talk briefly about our first awkward stumblings and initial 8th edition impressions in the first segment before getting into our interview. We discuss Aeldari lore with Gav Thorpe, the nature of the Phoenix Lords, as well as discuss his time with Games Workshop as a codex writer in the second second segment. We wrap up the interview in the third segment with our discussion of Thorpe's latest work Jain Zar.
Please visit and subscribe to Gav's blog: https://gavthorpe.co.uk/
And definitely buy Jain Zar if you have not already! http://www.blacklibrary.com/new-titles/featured/the-storm-of-silence-ebook.html
A huge thanks to Gavin Thorpe and listener Robert Lamborn for helping this interview to happen. We do apologize for the release date delay due to some technical issues with the recording. There are some odd audio spikes and sync problems in the first segment that were unavoidable. Thank you all for understanding.

Join us for the second half of Episode 32 where we discuss our playtesting of the Ynnari Warhost as well as a conversation between Alex and Brian discussing things we can do to stay active in 40K while we all play the Wait and See Game as 8th Edition looms large. The first interview was retrieved audio from a technical glitch. (ala Super Guppy!)
As a note: we referenced an interview with Doug Johnson from Tablewar (TABLEWAR!) that was irretrievable due to a technical error/file glitch on Brian's end. (Seeing a theme here...) We are attempting to reschedule with Doug and hope to re-record that interview to help you with tip for photographing your painted minis!

Our coverage of The Gathering Storm continues this month with the Fracture of Biel-Tan! Thor, Alex, and Brian discuss the background on birth of the Yncarne, the shear bad-assery of the Visarch, and the Yvraine (not Lady Malys for whatever reason) backstory. Brian and Alex talk hobby ideas for armies the Ynnari Warhost and the upcoming Splintermind hobby hangout in the second segment, and all three of us discuss our initial impressions of the Ynnari detachment while Brian channels his inner Robin Williams to heal the hurt.
If you would like to join Brian and Alex for our March 5th hobby hangout at 10:00AM EST send an email from a Gmail account and your name to Splintermindpodcast@gmail.com to sign up!

We're back...now 50% better! We cover the Gathering Storm Part 1: Fall of Cadia. We talk fluff, GW's new direction with campaign releases, formations that make sense, and debate exactly how swanky Trayzn's voice sounds. Also covered is the confessional moment as Brian admits how bad of a Reaver problem he has resulting from the Gangs of Commorragh. #KeepingupwiththeKeffers
*Note: An apology for Brian's super janky audio. Aside from recovering from a cold, his laptop reset to the default internal mic instead of his fancy mic.
