Episode 31 - Hex Ed: Out of the Gloom

It only took them 5 months to record again, but Jason and Jerod got together to discuss the state of Underworlds, including their local Rivals league, their favorite parts of the new season, and some thoughts on competitive play.



Episode 30 - Hex Ed: Strong Start

As the world starts to open back up, we can't think of a better time to start playing Warhammer Underworlds (or start playing again)! Join us as we share what we love about the game, why we think now is one of the best times in the game's history to start playing, and how we think you should start if you're brand new to the game.

In short, buy the Warhammer Underworlds Starter Set & Essential Cards, then choose new warbands from there.



Episode 29 - Cryosleep

6 months after the last episode, we get back together to talk about what they've been up to, their favorite gaming memories over the past 6 months, what they're looking forward to in the future, and what the show will look like for the foreseeable future.

In short, with the pandemic and life/work changes, recordings will continue to be irregular, BUT, we're fairly regularly hanging out in our Discord channel (link below), sharing hobby progress, cracking jokes, & chatting about games.



Episode 28 - Hex Ed: It’s Morg-in’ Time!

Morgok's Krushas and Morgwaeth's Blade Coven are up for pre-order and we're here to share a few deck ideas and review our top picks of Universal cards from both sets.

Also, remember that even though the NOVA Open Convention was canceled, you can still donate money for raffle tickets and win some cool armies, warbands, and other miniatures (including a well-painted Rippa's Snarlfangs warband):
