GDFC Podcast Episode 6: How To Go Over And (Down) Under In The New Eternal War Missions For 40k 9th Edition

GDFC is joined by a very special guest, Dineeth Liyanagama, from The Normal Blokes Podcast. If you haven’t had the privilege of giving them a listen, I highly recommend you do so. They are an excellent group of Australian gamers and share all of the same ideals we hold dear at GDFC.

Episode 6 arrives just in time to help you with the launch of 40k 9th edition! The gang tackles the Eternal War strike force missions and how we intend to pilot our lists and armies to victory. We focus on the missions from a birds-eye view covering the general strategies we think you will need to consider to be successful in the new edition.
