Masters of the Forge Episode 105 - Bugs in the Podcast

After weeks of serious hardware issues, we have released our episode on telling Tyranid narratives. The sound isn't great, but we think the content is awesome. We have a chat with Timbo about playing narratively with Tyranids. We have a game using the new Tyranids codex with Josh and Hank. We have a chat with The Honest Wargamer about their new show. This one is jam packed, folks. Hopefully, our hardware issues will be resolved for episode 106.

Adam and Jason are true to their word this week and have steered the podcast in the direction of a somewhat niche topic accompanied by some homebrew rules. This week, that topic are the Space Amish.

Masters of the Forge Episode 102 - Cadia Stands and Astra Militarum Preview

Masters of the Forge Episode 099 - Emperor's Children and New Releases
