Cheating in 40k has been a hot button issue, and Mob Rules chooses to talk about ways to guarantee a fun game, and minimize a negative gaming atmosphere. 

Danny challenges Dave and Jon to make a thousand point list with a secret "ingredient".  Is it a rip off of The Iron Chef? Probably, but Danny, Jon and Dave come up with three "amazing" lists.  Which is best? You decide. 

The Boys talk Kill Team and their future plans, before getting distracted with Croupiers.

In a distant land far far away, surrounded by giant cheeseburgers, round abouts and the Queen's hairy va-jay-jay, a lone Alaskan found himself alienated, confused and without a large truck to tell him he was okay. But through his confusion he learned about himself, his meaning and found love in that same va-jay-jay. Now, Dave is back to tell you all about it.

So, put on that favorite sock your granpa handed down to you the night he passed away, pour yourself a tall tasty glass of water you filtered after putting up with the sediment in the water for months after the line broke and bask in the dulcet tones of Mob Rules

Apr 21, 2018

It was a dark and stormy night, the recaf maker was on the fritz and the boiler was offline awaiting parts.  As you stumbled into the kitchen to see if you could find some calming tea to help calm your nerves from a tense day at the foundry the sound of glass hitting the floor in the living room broke your stride. Taking a step backwards to get a view of what happened you see three shadowed figures standing in your living room in a small circle staring at one another and at the broken glass. "Shit." I hope the heretic didn't hear that." "He isn't a heretic, he is clearly a xenos sympathizer and this is our jurisdiction." "Not at all, he is clearly a psychic and this is firmly within our jurisdiction." "Excuse me sir, but I was here first and he is a heretic. If you would both kindly leave so that I might dispatch him I would greatly appreciate it." "No, SIR, this is Not a case of simply heresy, he is a witch and needs to repent before death." 

Your mouth moved faster than your brain as you heard your words form: "What? 'Dispatch' me? You are mad!"

"First one to draw gets to claim him...."

"pop"

Even in the inquisition, nobody an agree on projects.

It has been a long hard road but Adepticon is behind us, memories were shared, grievances aired and more MDF than one should ever eat was eaten.  It was a thing.  But lets look forward, with LVO and AdeptiCon behind us, what does this mean for the tournament scene?  Meta shifts?  Points adjustments?  Who knows. Either way it is episode 72, so put on your favorite Mob Rules t-shirt with the blood stains from when your puppy bit you and one of her puppy teeth fell out, pour yourself a tall tasty glass of rubbing alcohol and bask in the intoxicating sounds of Mob Rules!

Mar 23, 2018

The guys are back and with Ted preparing for Adepticon, we talk about how to maximize the convention experience.  If that wasn't enough, there's more! Dave told us all about his "Hobby Essentials", but do Jon and Ted agree? We talk about what each of our can't miss hobby tools are.

In a galaxy far far away many millions of years in the... past?  the Necrontyr were birthed.  With an intense desire for Disco and coke the Necronotyr lived short but bright lives.  With a desire for more longevity they strode out to find meaning and zen but instead found mass amounts of dick heads bent on taking their coke money.  Now we have the Necron, so our story goes.

So put on that poncho that used to be the dog blanket you kept in the back of your hair-crusted Subaru, mix yourself up a tall tasty glass of various things you found in the freezer as well as some ginger and relax to the sultry tones of Mob Rules!

It is that time of the every-other-week again!  Mob Rules bringing the speaker noise to your ear holes.  How has it been this long without talking about the sister of battle?  Well, we are quickly plugging that gap in the dam.  Plug!  We also go into the custodes a little bit and talk about our favorite pasta... I think.  Maybe we didn't  Oh well.  Either way, sooooo, go ahead and get that your favorite BBQ rib bib on from that vacation to years ago to see your cousin Hank in Alabama, mix yourself up a nice talk tasty glass of wheat grass smoothie and relax in the warm, nurturing sounds of Mob Rules.

Late nights and dirty minds bring us the 69th installment of Mob Rules.  Danny steps in for Jon as we hit up Studio D (or is it Studio A.5?) and talk about the dirty Emperor's Children Legion/Chapter/Group/what ever.  But that is not all, what happens when you get packed into a room at LVO, you drink too much liquored up Slurpee and eat chicken wings, and who in the Hell is Nic?  So, take a moment, brush the popcorn crumbs off of your favorite dog blanket you use when you are too lazy to get a person blanket out of the closet, pour yourself a nice talk tasty glass of instant Hawaiian punch and bask in the melodic sounds of Mob Rules!

This aint no regular mainstream 40K podcast, this is an elite, no GMO, specially harvested on ethically maintained farm kinda hipster podcast.  Those other podcasts may want to shovel you artificial pesticides and mainstream chapter lore, but not us, we give you the obscure indy shit that nobody else talks about.  Thats right.  Feel like a boss when you start dropping names like the Space Sharks, Flame Hawks and Rainbow Warriors in casual conversation.

So put on your favorites pair of dark rimmed glasses, pour yourself a stein of your favorite micro brew and bask in the elitist sounds of Mob Rules!

Ever find youself really excited that your daughter aced her spelling challenge, and you remember that time when you did the same and a little twinge of pride warms your heart knowing that the two of you shared the same path, then out of nowhere your right peck burst into a boob (right right boob deflated into a peck)?  Yeah, stupid you!  That was Slaanesh.  So stop being proud of shit already, okay?  Well, this is the story of Slaanesh and his/her rise to super stardom. So slip into those pants you have been wearing every day because your pride and self image is pretty low these days, pour yourself a nice tall tasty glass of..... what ever, it doesn't matter, and bask in the meh tones of Mob Rules!

Have you ever been in the middle of the Christmas Carol and realized that this is really just the story of burgeoning primarch making their way in the world without their father's guidance during the Christmas season?  Me neither, that would be weird.  But just in case you have we have a treat for you!  Three Christmas movies transformed into 40K lore, plus our favorite this and thats, what we have been up to and all the other reasons we bother to record our dulcet tones.  So get up, our yourself a nice tall tasty glass of honey bee extract in grass smoothie, put on your favorite dress that you bought that you only wear when nobody else is around to remind you of that time as a kid when your friends made you break into a dodgy strip club and you fell in love with the stripper on stage who wore one marginally like it but you want to recapture that sensation (What? No, YOU'RE weird!), sit back and delve into the occasionally historically accurate sounds of Mob Rules!

Do you like people who like sandwiches?  Do you like people who like dead sandwiches?  Do you like people that like dead sandwiches that have feelings and talk to you about when your mom used to make her pancakes?  If so then this podcast is for you!  Eldar: Warhammer 40K's sandwich eating elves are on a quest to talk to their dead moms through the portent of sandwiches as the quest for the perfect pumpkin pancake recipe.  But instead of that perfect pumpkin pancake they find their past!  But not really.  But kinda, but not really, but.... no, they do.  Who cares.  It is elves.  Dave and Jon delve deep into the Ghost Warrior book and spoil the shit out of it for you.  So put on that Guardians of the Galaxy T-Shirt you have had for years with that one crusty spot around your lower abdomin that doesn't seem to come off no matter how many times you wash it, mix yourself a tall tasty glass of what ever frozen things are in the freezer, sit back and absorb the warm scandalous tones of Mob Rules!

What do 80's action heroes and Imperial Hives Cities have in common?  That is for you to decide.  See how nice we are?  You are empowered now to write your own answers.  We trust you.

This episode we delve into what it is like to live in a Hive city, the ins the outs and the unfortunate who gets turned into a toaster servitor.  Then, we get into a 1980's action style 40K hero write up, taking vintage heroes and turning them into grim dark super heroes.  Do you have somebody in mind?

Lets get into it.  Put on your favorite indi-comic T-shirt from the 1990's with the moth bite holes along the waste line, mix up a nice tall tasty smoothy with the left over apples from that pie you made a few weeks ago, sit back and bask in the warm sounds of Mob Rules!
