Just spotted this:




Comes out Dec 10th. Thoughts?

In addition, Stormcast is getting reformatted according to their article on Warhammer Community

Quote for those at work:
If you’ve been missing your regular dose of Warhammer podcast goodness, we have excellent news – we’re back with not one, but TWO podcasts from next week! We talked to our expert host Wade Pryce to find out what you can expect:


Wade: We are launching a new Warhammer 40,000 podcast called VoxCast on December 10th, and StormCast, our podcast all about Warhammer Age of Sigmar, will be returning in a newly reforged format the following Monday. They’ll then alternate each week, so you’ll have a new podcast to listen to every single Monday.

Each episode will be about an hour long and will feature in-depth discussions with the people responsible for the worlds of Warhammer about the things that interest them.

The guest list will include Studio background writers, rules writers, miniatures designers, army painters and ‘Eavy Metal painters, artists and authors. We’ll be talking about the sorts of things from Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 that interest and excite them, offering you insights into everything from how codexes are written to why Phil Kelly likes Ogors so much.

Working in the Design Studio for 12 years provided many opportunities for me to have lots of interesting conversations with lots of these people – and I’ll be having many more on the podcast. The only difference is, this time, you’ll get to hear them!


Kinda looking forward to it myself but I reckon Tabletop Tactics won't enjoy the name of their podcast being taken

Eh, Voxcast is a long-time 40K term.

Personally will be skipping this. Corporate backed stuff like this is almost always insufferably cringy and while, not dishonest...dripping with bias. Good for them though in continuing to try to spread good will and address their customers.

First thing I thought was, couldn't they have picked a name that doesn't conflict with one used for some time now by one of the bigger content creators in the community?

I feel like they could have come up with a better name.

To be fair, when you google search Warhammer 40k Podcasts, Tabletop Tactics' show is no where to be seen. However, a simgple Google search for "Voxcast" and Vox Cast" both come up with Tabletop's show. Also, apparently the name is used by a Physical Education podcast

Well, it's out, either I'm blind or they just released it quietly but you can get the video podcast HERE.

Or

You can have the audio on its own HERE.

Jes Goodwin is on episode one so I'm quite excited to hear what he has to say.

I was kinda wondering why they'd name their podcast the same as an existing one that seems to work somewhat closely with GW and is very supportive of what GW does.

Anyway, get a better camera. The video quality is trash.

They need to use microphone stands that don't transmit sound from hands knocking on the table.

Other than that, it was fascinating. Watched and enjoyed the whole thing. A lot of good insight into the design history covering Adeptus Mechanicus, Drukhari, Imperial Knights, Space Marines and the philosophy that informs and shapes their appearance. The 46mins 15 second mark onwards will be of great interest to folks wanting to design their own Space Marine Chapter. It's almost as if Jes read my mind with the suggestions.

So having listened to it back, I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised by the content, nothing pushy like chatting about the new releases, just Jes chatting about his thought processes. I think they've picked a really good first guest and it'll be hard to follow.

If they could get the sound and video sorted they'd be setting themselves up well for the future. Felt like an ASMR video at times!

Now I am usually not one to jump to conclusions, preferring to keep an open mind. But the way Jes referred to the Primaris as "the marine redesign" at 1:17 definitely made stop and think. It just seemed to be a bit of an odd way to refer to it, more like a replacement range of models than an additional set of units. I know that it is a popular opinion that standard marines are done, but just hearing it referred to in that way I found worthy of note.

Keep in mind, when Jes does artwork for models it's sometimes from 5-10-15 years prior. I know people picked out some Primaris elements from some of his artwork from the 90's etc. So it's entirely possible that the original Primaris designs were indeed a re-envisioning of the current marines, or were initially intended to simply be the new kits, etc.

The process from random sketch to actual unit in game is really lengthy. Remember it's entirely possible we could have had Primaris designed kits at normal marine scale and the story could have gone in a different direction, etc.

Oh I know that. It is just referring to them as a redesign made me think about the metal to plastic redesign. From a purely model perspective, Primaris could have just been a marine redesign. It is the fluff and rules where they have become something new. We already know that the rules re derived from the models, not the other way round.

This is the benefit of having a veteran artist in the team. Anything that they sketch, be it today or twenty years ago, can inspire a new line of miniatures. I'm sure he (and the other artists on the team) have got a library of sketchbooks by now that are all pretty much GW property to pour through whenever they need inspiration or want to make something different.

John Blanche said the same thing a couple of years ago. Yes, it does rationalise the whole Imperium when you see it as a galaxy spanning Death Cult which basically worships a dead superhero as a god.

Only about halfway through, but so far, I think it is pretty amazing. I hope they can keep up the quality going forward. Their previous Stormcast episodes were a bit uneven.

It's a podcast by GW but apart from the very end where they talk about Primaris and how customizable they are, it was just Jes talking about the design process and the different things he done. Worth a listen if you get the time!

Why not watch it yourself?

Also, can an obvious GW employee in a GW podcast on a GW site actually be a shill? Or just an employee talking about their job and that?

Also, this is what happens when you slag off your own product publicly....

It’s Jes Goodwin talking about how he goes about designing miniatures. It’s pretty fascinating stuff, even if your not interesting in GW’s settings or products, just hear a designer talk in such detail about their job.

I clocked that too. Really unsure if it was a genuine ‘new info’ thing, or just words. If that makes sense?

Interested to see how the Primaris develop going forwards.

I just think that it gives perspective on how the design studio approached the Primaris project. The created an updated line of space marines, with the lore and rule changes being developed later.

It's less about being a 'shill' and more about the fact that a podcast as this will never be honest.

It can have interesting bits like Jes Goodwin or whoever, but it's never going to criticise anything. It's always going to be 100% positive all the time. It's never going to say if a unit doesn't work in the rules, or needs changing, or that the rules are ambiguous, or that Stompas are are massively overpriced, and so on. It's never going to comment on a miniature in anything other than gushing hyperbolic enthusiasm. The presenter is never going to say "Fish Elves look dumb!" or "I wish there were more variety in Primaris helmets".

It will only ever be positive and, well, look at the pic in my sig. That's what it'll be.

I don't know about "Fish Elves", but variety in Primaris helmets is up to the person assembling the model. It's even covered in the podcast. Want to use a Corvus Helm on your Primaris? Do it. Treat it as a chapter relic armour piece. Likewise with Mark 6 shoulder pads.
