94 - Ynnari
The Aeldari have stood on the precipice of obliteration for thousands of years. As millennia pass, so too does the brilliancy that once covered the entirety of the galaxy. Doomed to extinction since their Fall some 15 thousand years ago, they have desperately held on to life for as long as possible, clawing at the skeins of fate, grasping for a future. And finally, that new future has come. Ynnead, the God of Death. Its awakening breathed new life into a race beaten down and tread upon. Its chosen priestess, Yvrainne, binds together the Aeldari, convincing them to abandon old tradition, to shake off their depression, to embrace a new path. She will usher in the destruction of the Great Enemy, She Who Thirsts. And through this, guarantee the survival of her race.In this episode, we cover all things Ynnari! This relatively new faction is ready to fit right into the grim dark reality that is Warhammer 40,000.

Bonus Episode 25 - Lore Help Desk: Astartes
Welcome to a brand new kind of bonus episode! After many long years of ridiculing and poking fun at all of your submitted lore, of criticizing sans critiquing, we have taken it upon ourselves to create a confusing mess of an episode to help you do that! We sit down with Chris for his last episode to discuss the nuances and considerations to ponder as you attempt to write your homemade loyalist Astartes Chapter. If you would like access to our document to use for your own creation, or to join in our discussion of what could or should be considered, please join our discord! We look forward to seeing you there!Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

93 - Militarum Tempestus
Excellence. Discipline. Obedience. These three words capture the essence of the Tempestus Scions. If the Imperial Guard are the hammer and the wave, then the Militarum Tempestus is the knife and the poison. These elite troops are trained (read: indoctrinated) from as young as 6, placed into Ecclesiarchal run orphanages to be educated (read: brainwashed) on all the most important of duties (read: complete and absolute loyalty). This episode dives into the life of the Tempestus Scion. Where do they come from? How are they created? What do they do? Joining us for this episode are Logan and Zac!

92 - The Carcharodon Astra
Savageness to make other Astartes uneasy. A fleet to make any space farer jealous. And enough secrecy to convince any Inquisitor of wrongdoing. The Carcharodon Astra operate in a class all their own. They circle above, watching and waiting for the opportunity to unleash their heavenly rage upon the enemies of the Emperor. Fiercely loyal, and utterly opposed to any that aren’t, they are proficient Space Marine killers. As promised, so we have delivered! Joining us on this episode are Peter, and for the last time, Christian. Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

91 - The Minotaurs Chapter
Some Chapters have a history that is detailed through the millennia with glories won, battles fought, and brothers lost. Others keep their histories a secret from prying eyes. Still others have no history to be shared at all. The Minotaurs Chapter has been an enigma since its inception, and those that attempt to uncover its secrets are met with sealed entries and misinformation. They are often seen as little more than beasts in bronzed armor, willing to rip out the throat of their brothers once the order is given. They are set apart from the Astartes, partly their own choice, and partly because many refuse to work with them. In this episode we dive into this mysterious Chapter with all the gusto and aplomb that you can expect from the Lorehammer team! Joining us on this episode are Dylan, and for the last time Chris.

90 - The Black Legion
Those that walk the highest path, have the furthest to fall. This is true of the XVIth Legion, whose fate was sealed on the day that Horus was named Warmaster. Though their reputation and combat record far exceeded any other Legion during the Great Crusade, it was their pride and hubris that made them perfect targets for the corruption of Chaos. Now they blaze a path of destruction across the galaxy, forged with fire and death. Their plans are laid, their will is set. They are the Black Legion, and their Gods will have their due. Join us as we dissect the Black Legion in all it’s foul glory. Joining us on this episode for the last time, is Christian.
