Episode 166 - Deacon of Wounds

Our saturation of all things fecund and vile continues with some Black Library content this time. We were lucky enough to be joined by author, David Annandale to chat about his Warhammer Horror novel, Deacon of Wounds. We discussed the novel itself, of course, but also Warhammer Horror and writing in general.

In this packed episode, we chat with Jon about the narrative for his Death Guard army, the Dead Men. We've also come up with some custom rules to go with the theme of his army including a vehicle-heavy army of renown and a narrative mission. We (Jon and Adam) also played a game and recorded a short battle report using the narrative scenario we came up with to pit his Death Guard versus Adam commanding some Grey Knights.
We have taken the time to pull apart the Plague Purge Crusade Mission Pack into its constituent parts and discuss them in detail. We'll be using this information to help us build custom missions and give advice in the future. 
We were joined in this one by Brian from the Splintermind podcast to discuss the new Crusade content for Drukhari.
