Just finished the episode, some comments:
1. Great hearing from The 13th Legion - the pictures of the Hellsreach game were amazeballs and it was really cool to hear more about it. Went straight from listening to the episode to looking up their website and signing on.
2. The interview with Justin was incredibly interesting as well as inspiring to see the determination and dedication of someone to a game they love. Plus it's awesome to hear about the people in the hobby willing to step forward and go out of their way to help someone in their hobby endeavors. Thanks for sharing his story.
3. I remember when Necrons were first popping up as small mysterious raiding forces at the end of 2nd ed. I have to say that I've always preferred the slow, soulless and mindless creeping horror version that was originally the fluff as opposed to the more current iteration. But in the sense that it represented the fact that the first forces that were coming out of stasis were only acting on the most basic survival functions and now that more dynasties are waking up and more of the command and deeper programming protocols are also being activated...it does make sense. Personally, when I occasionally play my old Necron force, I still run it as a small isolated raiding force - all warriors, Immortals, and scarab swarms with a single Monolith as heavy support. I also use a mix of the original metals and old plastic "Chaos androids" as Immortals, and the new plastics and some metal models from an old third party Space Hulk "homage" game called Legions of Steel as warriors. Can't run them in a GW store but gives my army a unique look https://goo.gl/photos/MyucAcxnDKS75Zu7A
4. In the whole"Kuh-tahn/Suh-tahn" debate, I was always of the mind it was "Kuh-tahn" until Adan threw out the Satan comment! Considering GW has mentioned in the Necron lore before about how the image of the Nightbringer had come down thru the eons to be a representation of actual Death to even the relatively young race of Humanity, it makes perfect sense that "Suh-tahn" would also tie into a racial memory echo. Mayyyyybe I'm reading too much into it, but...
5. Dating myself here, but I also remember the first time I saw the first Die Hard and thinking that it was really strange to see David from Moonlighting in an action movie
