Episode 126: Black Library Book Club 2
In this episode, we talk discuss two Black Library books as part of our Black Library Book Club series. We take a look at two books focused on the God Machines or Titans of Warhammer 40K; Titanicus by Dan Abnett and Imperator: Wrath of the Omnissiah by Gav Thrope. Although both have Titans at the center of the story, they are very different stories. We start with a spoiler free review section and  give our recommendation for each book. We will then do a more in-depth spoiler-filled dive into each book to discuss the themes, characters, and stories.

In this episode, we talk about getting back to 40K basics with Garagehammer. Garagehammer is the term the community uses for playing at home rather than at a store or an event. It's what many of us started doing, and with the current situation its what many of us find ourselves doing again. We discuss how to get started, the benefits and drawbacks, and our plan for the future. We also discuss our upcoming Battlehosts Crusade campaign.
