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 Freakshow Tactica author Jimsolo from Thedarkcity.net forums for a discussion on running the ultimate leadership shenanigans using Dark Eldar, Craftworld Eldar, and Harlequins for maximum terror and profit! Also featured is an interview with Nick (AKAThe Burning Eye from the forum) talking about his Hero for a Day charity event this summer. More information for the event can be found here:
A couple of announcements: Jim's audio signal was rough in a few spots, listen on and the audio does improve! As mentioned on the Facebook page, we are looking for one person from each country outside of the United States that left reviews with iTunes accounts registered outside of the United States to send us a list of people that left reviews. Simply message us with the user names only of those that left reviews and we will enter your name twice! As an added bonus, Brian will probably butcher your name on Splinter Raid Episode 2 dropping February 17th when the winners are announced. Thanks again, our listeners are the best!
