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!


Please visit the sponsor of the promotion over at Fallouthobbies.com and check out their great products!

Check out the sites and shows of our guests!

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!

Splintermind: The Dark Eldar Podcast - Episode 15

Thor is left bereft of co-hosts, but thankfully is still joined by Squidmaster and Darkgreen Pirate, two 1st place prize winners of the Fiction competition on TheDarkCity.net as they discuss the Dark Eldar and how they are portrayed in Warhammer 40k fluff. The good and the bad are mentioned as well as some advice on writing the True Kin.


I also apologize (with shame) for my constant mispronunciation of 'coven' but...well, American Movie is one of my favorite films and it messes with your head after enough viewings.


Torturer's Tale - the quinessential Dark Eldar story, as penned by Gav Thorpe and preserved on TheDarkCity.net

Thor and Cavalier take over the show as Brian is pulled away by real life Trueborn. The Dark Angels codex is reviewed as we discuss what it means for the Dark Eldar. Then we turn our conversation to an overall consideration of the DE codex in the meta of Warhammer 40k at the moment.


Plus - the first of our doner interviews as we try to shake a train story.
