This week we dive deep into the huge announcement of Wave XI.  The Mynocks discuss the merits of sap in space travel, how terrifying the Empire will be with 4 Twin Laser Turrets, and whether you'll choose your Captain Nym flavor in Rebel or Scum.  Also, the return of the SHIP RETROSPECTIVE, upgrade card highlights, and tips for everyone!

Fly Better!

Mar 14, 2017

The new meta is almost upon us as Fantasy Flight Games recently dropped a new FAQ on us.  Squads that were once at the top of the food chain now find themselves scrambling against potential new Alpha (strike?) builds.  The Mynocks discuss the big 4 of the changes and how the meta will shift and adapt because of it.  Also there's a pretty...Scyk preview as well.

FLY BETTER!

Mar 7, 2017

[Note: We recorded this just before the FAQ Bombshell, we'll talk all about that next week] Last year Europe proved to have a much different meta than the rest of the world, with Triple Jumpmasters dominating almost all the lists.  What's changed?  The Mynocks bring in Jelt de Boer, Charlie Ter Horst, and Faan Langelaan from Amsterdam Squadron to discuss what's happening across the pond.
