Close your eyes and say the words “Flesh Tearers,” “Flesh Tearers.” Let the words roll over your tongue, let them flow through your body, allow the mantra to seep into your soul and bring you a deeper understanding of what it is to be the second son of Baal. Now, open your eyes. Don’t you feel much better? What ever, guys. We did this episode on the Flesh Tearers and it was rad. The end. Now download the episode, pour yourself a tall tasty glass of V8, pull up your favorite fart-stained bean bag chair and imbue your mind with the soul molesting sounds of Mob Rules.
Lets talk about Iron Hands baby, lets talk about you and me, hmmmm hmmmm hmmmm humidity hum hum I forgot the rest of the song.
This bit follow up the discussion of the Iron hands that started last episode with the Wrath of Iron book report, we go into some talk about what the inside of power armor smells like, what chapter is most likely to wear cardboard and tin foil, back around to what games we have been up to, a solid super plug for Iron Heart Artisans and all sorts of wiener jokes. So get ready, mix up a nice tall glass of smoothie made from questionably safe fruits and yogurt that have been in the question way past their prime, put on your favorite blue Snuggie and tune in to Mob Rules!
One upon a time in a land far far away there was a mining town called, Shanendan, Shenandoah, Shepards Ferry, I don’t remember, it started with an Sh. Anyway, it was a mining town, no wait it was a planet, yes, that was it, it was a planet. The aristocracy was bored, bored of being bored, were feeling a bit randy, had already seen all there was to see on the internet, had all the parties were you put your car keys in a bowl and do the weird things and they felt that darling in mono-boobed crab claw strange would be a fun. But then wouldn’t you know it, some tattle tail went and told the authorities and in the 41st millennium the authorities are sometimes super soldiers with two hearts, spit acid and fire rifles with mini missiles in them. And sometimes when the party gets so big and out of control those authorities call in the Collegia Titanica. It was that kind of party.
Amazing book, we hope you read it, but if that whole reading thing is not your thing we have the thing covered. It is book review time on Mob Rules!!!! This ep we cover the Wrath of Iron, a tale of all that stuff I previously mentioned plus a lot of dead guardsmen and some not-fully-dead Iron Hands. Ohhhhhh it is good one. So get yourself a nice tasty mug of apple cider, pull up your favorite bean bag chair that permanently smells like farts and tune in to the whiling of Jon, Ted and Phil.
Considering Lost Patrol but just really not sure? It took a while but we pulled the trigger on this cult classic and have a review just for you. No, really, it is just for you. There is nobody else here, just you and I. Not your grandma, not that guy on the bus that you always see talking to himself, or that neighbor that is always outside yelling at the dogs on the street or that lady who checks your produce and remembers when you were a kid but you do not remember her. No, it is just you and me here talking and I have a special review of Lost Patrol just for you.
"A mini-sode? What tha heck is a mini-sode and why should I download this crap?" Well, hypothetical person, a minisode is a less winded version of what we usually do and you should download it because it comes with a free exclusive miniature of Marnius Calgar. Okay, that is a lie, it does not come with a mini at all. However, it IS free! Now isn't that better? In this first and irregular installment we go about the Tale of Gamers and what we were thinking about when we made up our stories and teams. This is an event that caught us by surprise, drafting the stories and the meaning was a lot more rewarding than initially thought, giving new life and love to our little dude-bros. So sit back, crack open a microwave nacho tray from the local gas station and open your ears to the seductive rants of Mob Rules!
This is a re-mastered version of our overly salty 27th episode of the Ultramarines movie. Sadly I discovered the hard way that if I take a compressed audio file and bring it back into garageband and save it again it can frag up the audio making it sound like a vintage recording played on a vintage radio that had been sitting out in the rain for the last 15 years as the family in squirrels inside try to desperately pack the membrane with leaves to quiet the buzzing. But you are not hear to listen to me make excuses, you are hear to listen to us complain about OTHER people's creative projects.
So pull up a chair, open a bag of salty nuts and let the salty sea waves of Mob Rules take you away.
Tired of us talking about the lost first episode? Well we found it! YAY! After this you will never ever ever have to hear us yammering on about it again. Okay, well, we didn't ACTUALLY find it, we recreated it with one less person and a lot more dick jokes. The subject is all about the emperor and who the guy was, in staying with the theme we get some eBay Price is Right with the Golden Throne and we launch into the new event: "Tale of Gamers (which has NOTHING to do with the emperor)!" So pour yourself a tall frosty glass of Faygo, pull up close to the radio and indulge your ears in regret. It is the anniversary episode of Mob Rules!
Hold on to your listening buds, this shiz is getting extensive! The Glacial Geek swings by the greenhouse to join in on a highly extensive Beast Arises mid-term review, and by "extensive" I mean: I am sorry. We go through your FAQ questions with more authority than Reese Robbins embued with deity-ship. Okay, that is taking it out of order, but who reads these anyway? Get on with the downloading already!!!!
Sterling swings by for some Tournament Hangover, we talk broken knights, dream listing some FAQ questions and why should hit up some of Alaska's tournaments!
BTW, we got a new shirt design!!! Woot!
Red Bubble this shiz!
Do you ever have that feeling that your game is a fraud? I am not talking about the rules you and your mates play by, but you, yourself. A lot of successful people feel that way, that, even though their novel has been on the New York Times best seller list that somehow people will find them out to be a fraud. Now that the F.A.Q. has dropped we are all left with that self-reflection: “everything I thought I knew is wrong and I may not know my game.” Hey guess what! The answers are at hand and you will sure NOT discover them in Mob Rules Episode 23: The Search For More T-Shirt Sales! Buuuuut we will talk a bit about the F.A.Q., a bit about fliers and whether or not Hasbro makes quality toys.
Check out the Mob Rules folks:
Our main man Pete from NGC40K swings in to discuss Narrative gaming, Imperial knights and drops the knowledge on why we should all listen to the NGC40K podcast. Easily my new favorite episode, Pete fit right in with our sense of humor and made it an amazing couple hours.

There are three things in life that are guaranteed:
1) if you drop jellied toast it will land messy side down to ensure your morning goes well.
2) if you go shopping when you are hungry you will inevitably buy things that you will never want to eat when you are of sound mind.
3) even if you do not play Space Marines in 40K they are at least the secret reason you started playing the game.
Today the lads walk through the fields of space marine history with their pal Sterling, jokes were made and swear words were cast. It was a good time, so swing on by the Mob Rules Cafe and get yourself a listen on us.

Do you have a favorite bacon casserole? I do not think I do, they are kind of interchangeable and amazing for the most part. Unless the bacon gets soggy, then they are gross.
Do you like Gav Thorpe and Orks? We do! Guess what! Chicken butt. Guess what else! Phil and Gav came back and talked to us about Ork Attack Moons and gretchen who masquerade as Imperial Fists. Feel free to skip through the rest of the podcast to get to the Gav parts, I know I do.
Also, if you want more Gav check out his blog and sign up for his news letter: gavthorpe.co.uk/

Final plug of the day: GIVE US ITUNES REVIEWS!!! Did I tell you that we love you? Well we do.
Love books? We love books! Well, we buy them and put them on our shelves so people think we love books, but the official answer is "We love books!" Danny came back to talk about the Beast Arises! Woot! So if you love books, love Danny, love Orks, hate Imperial Fists and love black labrador retrievers you will love our podcast. No guarantee. But you might. Still no guarantee. After the review the boys get into a new game show and talk mad shit. St back, pour yourself a tall glass of grape Faygo and get yourself learned.
BTW, we have a new website: www.mobrulesmedia.com/
You can listen to podcasts, buy swag, read fan fiction, see pictures and... that is all.
Joe pulls back the mask and reveals his true identity, the boys talk mad smack, we delve into alternative mission types in 40K and striking that balance between competitive and whacky, then get on with some games. Sit back, crack open a bottle of grape Faygo and let the audio fly!
BTW, check out last episode’s Narrative vs Competitive poll.
The lads fall asleep and find themselves in an alternate world with two academic teams debating the qualities of competitive VS. narrative play. Who will win? Is narrative play just a better way to get into the game? Does story get in the way of your ability to beat face? Listen to the podcast then run over to the facebook page to cast your vote!
Zach talks Necromunda, Ted goes on about what it is to be a trans-gender Escher and Jon insists that DeLaque are dorkier than Cawdor, you be the judge. Zach brings us back to talk about playing a "dead game." All this and not much more in Episode 13!
Once upon a time there was a Custode named Jeff who went by the name of "Custode Jeff." He loved cheeseburgers, long walks in the underhive and spanking jokaero when their mom's were not around. That has nothing to do with this episode which is about Orks and holiday wishlisting, but we just felt that you should know who Jeff the Custode is.
Do you find yourself stripping little men often? Well, your mom should know about it, but if you want some suggestions we gotcha! Not only that but Andy discusses some Calth and what gamers do when they are not talking trash about each other's army books. Oh, and have you heard: Specialist games are coming back! Hitting you like an hot iron deuce in a wet paper bag.
Gav Thorpe joins us via Skype, puts to rest the question as to whether the Dark Angels are traitors or not, talks about developing games and plays a few rounds of "The Points Are Right." Unfortunately some of the audio was corrupted and we lost nearly all of the discussion on writing about the Dark Angels, but that is probably appropriate all things considered. Sorry Phil and Gav.
For more on Gav visit his blog at: http://gavthorpe.co.uk/
Jon and Ted get ready for Thanksgiving with a visit from Nate. October turns to Tauvember with a healthy dose of Tau seasoned with some Horus Heresy talk and the lads discuss what they are thankful for. One badass British celebrity sent us a new ad but you have to wait till the end of the episode to find out who it is! Set out a plate of biscuits and tea, snuggle up to the fire in your Ant Man Snuggie and get ready for Mob Rules Episode 9!
Kurt joins Mob Rules to discuss his tactics in the Red Waaagh campaign, then alienates Ted in the questions and answer period. Jon and his AT-AT find love, though not with each other, and helps the Tau find social acceptance. All this and fewer burps on air. There is no better 40K morning show than Mob Rules!
