    Love the show.
    Just wanted to let you know Dave with regards to Eldar tanks tankshocking your vendettas, do not get your Dodge save.

    Pg 71 second column first sentence
    “Skimmers may try to dodge out of the way of tanks
    attempting to ram them(as long as the ramming tank
    is not also a skimmer).”………..

    Happened at a tourney when a DE playing buddy of mine got Rammed by Eldar.

    I really enjoy the show, even though I think any player who glues his flyer based vehicles on their bases means they have to buy the first round after.

        One of the many wonderful things about all of you on this podcast is that you make absolutely no attempt to pretend you know it all.

    Good show guys one of my favourite so far. 🙂

    It was really good to listen to Josh talk about how he thinks/plays the game, and I agree about the practicing.

    I’m getting really excited about the GT, and it was nice to hear about the “non-match” activities we can expect when we get there; is there any kind timetable yet for these “non-match” activities?

    My lot are going to be arriving early on Friday, so if any one wants a “grudge match” with me on that Friday then let me know, and give me a good reason; I’ve made many a scathing remark in my posts, so I probably deserve it!

    See you all there. 🙂

    What a great episode, it was really insightful to see how Josh approaches a game and all the thoughts therefore after! Really great episode.

    It was interesting to hear about the pre set up thought process that Josh uses, totally different to how I approach the game.

    Looking forward to finding out who the other 6 “Top Players” you interview are.
