Hi all,

For ease, I'll drop all links here for those interested in checking out the back catalogue.

1. An Epic Life (a history of Epic and our history with the game) - https://youtu.be/NkR2OeA2nNk

2. Favourite Space Marine army lists - https://youtu.be/Zc02HLSR6-g

3. Favourite Eldar army lists - https://youtu.be/OLFNoBLakzA

4. Favourite Imperial Guard lists - https://youtu.be/TobTfOyda2o

I've been running the Life of Die Podcast for a few months now and have finally gotten around to discussing Epic! I've put this under Net Epic because a lot of the focus of the podcast will cover this and/or 2nd Edition, but this first podcast is more of a discussion of the various editions of Epic and our history with the game! I hope you enjoy!


More soon!

In our latest Epic-themed podcast, we discuss our favourite 2nd Edition Adeptus Astartes units and set out some army lists for 2K, 3K, 4K & 5K forces! But do you agree with our choices...? Let us know your preferred lists!

Just had a listen to your first Epic podcast on history of the game, really enjoyed it.

Totally agreed with the impressions of Armageddon. As much as I like the game it's incredible how much of a different experience it gives to 2nd edition and NetEpic. A friend of mine said it felt like a range measuring exercise when we played, and I think that sums it up well for me too. I can totally see why it has become the predominant tournament scene game because it's ideally suited to that environment, but I felt like it was lacking a little 'soul' (if I can say that without sounding like a complete arse!) compared to 2nd ed.

Did laugh about the tale of that one failed armour save and losing the game on account of it, some ones definitely do stick with you!

Cheers Pacific! Thanks so much for giving it a listen and for sharing your thoughts! Ha, I don't think you sound like an arse, I think we all just have our personal favourite versions of the game and I'm sure that others find 2nd Edition a bit overwhelming with most units having unique weapons and/or rules. I think all of that was made much easier for me by being a teenager at the time of release; I do wonder what my middle-aged brain would make of 2nd Edition if seeing it for the first time now!

Yeah, it's funny how that defeat really sticks in my memory! I can't recall if Craig said this in the podcast, but he did remark at some point that defeats seem to stick with you a lot longer than victories do! I think there's a lot of truth in that!

Yes I absolutely know you mean! I can remember Blood Bowl, Epic and Necromunda rules I learned as a child as surely as anything. These days, was trying to learn Warcry recently (which is meant to be just a little more complicated than Yahtzee) and a mate and I spent forever looking at the rules and scratching our heads!

That's a great line on defeats sticking with you. I think my favourite ever was Blood Bowl, and a Dwarf of mine trying to 'go for it' one more square to score a touchdown and win the match. The sequence went: '1' fail -> reroll > '1' fail > failed armour roll > dead > apothecary roll '1' fail > definitely dead.
Still remember the howls of laughter of everyone watching that sequence, but at least now the memory of my dead dwarf has passed and you have to laugh! :)

Looking forward to listening to the other Podcasts now, thanks again! :)
