I highly recommend. They start by building a broad framework of the 40k universe then start filling in the details as the series goes on. Hilarious heresy.

Meh, listened to the first couple episodes. Their Ork coverage was terrible. I was trying to catch up on changes since I last followed and played 40k. They may have a broad knowledge,but it isn't deep. Overall, I don't think I'd recommend.

Very entertainig and very thorough podcast. Love the personalities, jokes and in depth lore discussions!

Description

Lorehammer is a podcast that focuses on the lore of the Warhammer 40k setting. In each episode we talk about a specific aspect of the universe, sharing known information followed by a discussion portion. Easily digestible, informative and entertaining, welcome to Lorehammer.

Episode Date
74 - Necron Warcrypts
01:55:56

Science so advanced it baffles the simple mind. Captured star hearts and contained singularities are just a couple of the ways that the Necron wage war. The magnitude of their brilliance is only subdued by the scope of their imagination. Their machines float above the carnage they dole out, crackling energy discharging from weapons to flay their enemies molecule by molecule. Doom has come.

In this episode we talk about the many different vehicles that the Necron race wages war with. Joining us for this episode are Rio and Micah.

73 - Tyranids: Non-Synapse Creatures
02:25:00

The Imperium would have you believe that the Tyranid race follows a simple rule, "Cut off the head, and the body soon follows." And while there is an essence of truth in that statement, it does not mean your fight is any less dangerous. They would have you believe that the Tyranid species that find themselves out of the range of their synapse are dumb and helpless creatures.

Allow me to assure you; they are not. The fight for your life has only begun.

This episode is all about the Tyranid species that don't have a direct slink to the Hive Mind, and about how they act when they cannot be controlled by the Hive Mind. Joining us are James and Iain.

Listener Lore 11
01:31:35

Welcome back to our Listener Lore episodes! We took a small break from them as we focused on other aspects of Lorehammer, but we're back in full force now! Back and better than ever! The best in fact! BETTER THAN THE BEST!

For this episode we read about Raaptors987's Astartes the Stormbreakers, Joshua's Necron the Nyuserra Dynasty, Tomas' Sisters of Battle and the Order of the Crimson Lily, and Alex's Orks the Bleachskullz.

72 - Waaagh! Energy and Weirdboyz
01:43:52

Concerning Orks and the Warp.

Manifesting warp energy has always been risky business, and nobody knows this better than the Ork. An unfortunate circumstance of the Ork race is their inability to control their tides and ebbs of power. Orks being Orky tends to unconsciously generate more Waaagh! energy around them, and Orks do love to be Orks. This has catastrophic consequences for Weirdboyz, and any other Orks around them. Please listen to episode 72 for more information about this peculiar phenomenon within the Ork species.

This episode is all about the Waaagh! energy built up by the Ork species, and how they deal with it.

Joining us for this episode are Jordan and Skyler.

Jun 03, 2020
71 - Wych Cults
02:07:03

The sands of the arena. Millions of screaming blood-thirsty Drukhari. You awaken to these, and your heart sputters as your stomach drops. Your death is soon. You know it, the captivated audience knows it, and the Wych stalking you is the reason. There is no escape once you are in the coliseum. There is only death. And it can't come fast enough... Because first, you must learn pain.

In this episode we talk about Wych Cults! These Drukhari fulfill a very special role within the Labyrinthine Dimension, keeping the masses satiated.

Joining us for the first time, is Brianna, and Chris for the last time.

70 - The Aeldari Path of the Dead
01:30:37

You never saw it coming. It sneaked up on you, like the first solar snow of the cycle. You slowly look up from the blade piercing your belly into the eyes of a Space Marine. You spit. They are filthy creatures, brainwashed servants of a Corpse-Emperor. You raise your pistol for one last shot, and your vision fades. In a violent torrent, you burst out of your body. The Empyrean calls, and you feel drawn to its crooning. And yet, something holds you back. Something begins to tug you the other way, back toward reality. You... twist and turn, and there it is, your new haven. Shining as bright as a thousand suns it overtakes your senses, until you see nothing else. Piece by infinitesimally small piece you are drawn into this Stone. This protected place. As the tumult of this experience wanes, you take comfort in the knowledge that She who Devours has been denied your soul. Your Path of the Dead has begun.

In this episode we discuss what happens to an Eldar after they die. Where do they go? What do they do? And maybe most importantly, why do they do this? 

Joining us for this episode are James, and Rio.

May 06, 2020
69 - Legio Cybernetica
02:19:38

Metal monsters. Amalgamations of alloy and automation. The Legio Cybernetica have been creating nightmares for tens of thousands of years. They have a dark and mysterious past, and would do their best to make sure it remains that way. They are the robotic branch of the Adeptus Mechanicus, and only concern themselves with pure robotics. In this episode we discuss everything from robots to A.I. It's especially good since none of us know what we are talking about.

Joining us for todays release are Micah, and for the last time, Christian.

Lorehammer Lockdown: Lorehammer vs. Star Lores
01:36:13

For this last Lockdown episode, we managed to get the cast of the Star Lores podcast in our studio!! What a stroke of luck! We tackle many of the burning questions like, is a Jedi or a Space Marine stronger? Which universe is bigger? And most importantly, why is 40k better than Star Wars? You can expect to find answers to these important issues in this final Lockdown episode.

Joining us for this episode is Jordan, and for the last time Chris.

Lorehammer Lockdown: Nathan and James
01:51:08

We're almost done releasing our Lockdown content, but before we did, we wanted to give you a taste of what it felt like to hear our gaming smack talk. It turns out that we are a little salty at Iron Hands... interesting...

Joining us on this episode are James and Nathan.

Lorehammer Lockdown: Cold Open Stories with Colyn
52:41

This episode is a love letter to everyone that contributes to the Warhammer 40k universe. All we want to do is see more and more people get into 40k and appreciate it for what it is. We want people to write stories, play epic battles, model awesome minis, and film great shows. And the more that we focus on including people in the artistic process the more ideas and talent that we will have access to.

Listen to Colyn share some of the AMAZING success that he has had with his Cold Open Stories. Fully endorsed by Lorehammer. 10/10. Would audition again. No matter that he didn't pick me to be in it. It's fine. I barely even remember the role. It's not like I wrote extensive backstory for him...

Apr 10, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Meet Woody!
01:10:47

Hopefully by this point you've passed the halfway point in your 14 days self isolation. We want you to know that we're here for you. Metaphorically. Figuratively. I mean... stay 6 feet away... but here's a virtual hug from us to you!

In this episode, we chat with one of the original fans of Lorehammer. Woody has been listening to us since almost day one, and has supported us tremendously these past almost 3 years!

Apr 09, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Late Night Talks with Matt
01:19:25

In this Lockdown we chatted with someone on the other side of the ocean! WOAH! Isn't that just neato? Technology is amazing! I mean, just the other day I was sitting on the couch, watching a youtube video on my tv while I played on my switch while I talked on my phone and music was playing in the room. I might be going crazy.

In this episode Matt shares his plan for starting a 40k RPG game that he will host on our discord! As well, we talk about role playing specifically within the 40k universe, and Matt shares many little tidbits and goodies from the perspective of a Game Master.

68 - Primaris Marines
02:37:58

"They were forged for Mankind's darkest hour - and that hour is upon us."

— Lord Commander Roboute Guilliman

With the resurrection of Roboute, he was able to finally unleash a plan 10,000 years in the making. Calling upon his loyal servant Cawl, a new wave of super soldiers joined the Imperium's battles across the entire galaxy! These fresh warriors would soon be baptized by fire, emerging from the crucible of war as the newest hope for a beleaguered race. These are the Primaris Marines.

In this episode we talk about the history of the Primaris Marines. It has been mostly fleshed out at this point, so we figured it was time to put their existence into perspective. Enjoy!

Joining us for this episode is James, and for the last time Chris.

Lorehammer Lockdown: Dylan Locks the Door
01:38:07

Dylan had such a great time on his last Lockdown that he wouldn't leave. He pulled out the duct tape, zip ties, and rag gags and locked the door on us. We had no choice but to bow to the Australian power he wielded and create with him another episode.

May God have mercy on your ear holes...

We hope your isolating is going well! This episode is our gift to you!

Joining us on this episode, is Dylan.

Apr 07, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Lorehammer v. Spenny
01:09:07

This is our first and last ever remote recording. We sat Spenny (an active member of our discord and a fervent believer in Lorehammer) down and chatted with him about his Warhammer 40k journey. We also talk about a couple of the barriers to entry of the hobby, and ways to circumvent them! Enjoy this latest episode of the Lorehammer Lockdown series.

Joining Mark and Erik for the first time ever, Spenny.

Apr 06, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Peter Teaches Role Play
01:46:49

We hope that you haven't gone crazy yet and that you are firmly saying "No" to the voices that have begun to speak to you from the corners of your mind. But just in case you have started to talk with them, there's a few things you should know. First, always stay in character. It doesn't help anyone's immersion if you flit between personalities all the time. Secondly, the more outrageous and outlandish the accent, the better. Really try to develop these voices that are speaking to you. Create histories for them. Create memories that you can refer back to in order to shape their character. And then, when this is all over, realize that you went too far and now you have a couple friends that will always be with you... ALWAYS.

And if you said no, well that's why we're here! To offer a distraction from those pesky boredom daemons.

Enjoy this Lockdown episode where we got Peter in to chat about a bunch of our role playing experiences, both inside and outside of 40k. 

Apr 05, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Floridacast
02:02:45

Recently, Mark spent some time down in the "Sunshine state", in the "windy city" itself! In true fashion of "keeping Florida weird" and making sure that the alligators were sated, Mark met with a fan and had a fun time chat with him! In these times where you can't even go see your friends, we figured there was nothing more beautiful than two soul partners having a meaningful conversation for the very first time. Listen as they fall in love in front of your very eyes- er... ears...

Enjoy an episode of Mark and Nic!

Apr 03, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Ask us Anything
02:08:52

Self-isolation driving you insane? Are the pets constantly demanding attention? Is your local gaming store not letting you in, no matter how hard you bang on the glass and plead to be able to have just a single touch of shrink-wrapped goodies like please just one taste sir that's all I want I swear after that I'll leave wait no why are you calling the cops there's no need for this please!

In this episode we asked our discord for questions and boy did we get a lot. We do our best to answer them all, except for the ones that we obviously don't care about.

Joining us for this is Iain, our painting friend.

Apr 02, 2020
Listener Lore 10
01:32:48

We continue to slog through the massive backlog of Listener Lore that we seem to have amassed over the years... No idea how that happened...

Get ready for Archmagos Azreal Grimm's Mechanicus, Cody's Necron, Bryce's Imperial Knights, and David's Imperial Knights!

Reading these stories with us for the first time ever, is Spenny!

If you have a story that you want to share with us, shoot us an email at lorehammerpodcast@gmail.com.

Lorehammer Lockdown: The Dylan Show
01:22:50

Continuing our gifts of ear goodness, here is another episode from our Lockdown to yours! Self isolating or quarantining can get lonely, so we decided to bring to you the highest energy person that we know. If you've ever heard his episodes before, you know to have a quick control on that volume. 

In this episode we talk about random random stuff. There doesn't seem to be any discernible pattern or flow to this so... consume at your own risk.

Joining us for this episode is Dylan, our Ork-y Aussie friend!

Mar 31, 2020
Lorehammer Lockdown: Painting with Iain
01:53:36

The gracious and ever humble Loremasters have deigned to give the lowly mortals and plebeians soothing noises for their ears during these trying time!

For the next two weeks we are going to be releasing an episode a day to make sure that you all have something to fill your day! Our hope is that these episodes will help with feelings of loneliness or isolation in these turbulent and unpredictable times.

This episode is all about painting, and we have included our friend Iain, a commission painter that lives in Calgary, AB. If you want to see some of his work, and maybe even talk commissions with him, find his IG here https://www.instagram.com/lawsonminiatures/

Enjoy these one-of-a-kind episodes!

67 - Gene-seed Mutation
02:39:39

Gene-seed mutation. Do we understand it? Nope. Does it make sense? Not really. Are we expert geneticists? Absolutely not. Are we still going to do an episode about genetics in the far future? You bet we are!

Join us as we discuss the mutation that runs rampant through the gene-seed of the Adeptus Astartes. We talk about how it affects Chapters as a whole as well as individuals. 

Joining us are James and for the last time, Chris.

65 - Abaddon's Black Crusades Pt. 2
02:10:55

"Thirteen times shall the Traitor King go forth.
In the End Times the iron fortress shall be cast down,
Its walls breached and its Gate forced open.
Those that dwell beyond shall spill through it.

The air shall burn and the ground shall melt,
The Daemon shall lie down with the machine,
Brother shall slay brother with fire and sword,
And the sky-wound shall pour its malice forth.

The Eye shall stare unblinking at its prize,
And the Traitor King shall cross the bridge of stars.
He shall return to finish the Warmonger's red work,
Upon holy soil shall the fate of man be decided." - The Liber Malefact

This episode concludes our 2 part session of the Black Crusades of Abaddon the Despoiler. Joining us for this episode are our heretical friends Tim and Jordan.

64 - Abaddon's Black Crusades Pt. 1
02:11:16

A 10,000 year Long War. The most carnage and devastation that has been visited on the galaxy since the Horus Heresy. Leader of the Black Legion and Champion of the Chaos Pantheon. Abaddon has desecrated endless holy sites in his hatred for the Emperor and the Imperium that He created. He has commanded the most successful campaign against Humanity through his Black Crusades. In this episode we discuss the first 11 of his Black Crusades, and will continue the tale of the Despoiler in our next release. 

Joining us for this episode is Tim, and for the last time, Christian.

Feb 12, 2020
63 - Tau Between Spheres
01:34:42

We last left the Tau at the end of the Second Sphere of Expansion. Stretched thin, they arrived at the Damocles Gulf, unable to cross it. In the 300 years between the 2nd and 3rd Spheres, the Tau race would be put to their greatest tests since the time of Mont'au. They would interact with three distinct races, as well as deal with their own internal problems. But the spark of hope that is the Greater Good can never go out, it will continue to shine throughout the galaxy.

Joining us for this episode is our friendly Tau lover, Rio, as well as James.

62 - Dynastic Legions
02:08:44

The dead rise again. Whispers of an evil spread throughout the galaxy. Planets shake as ancient sarcophagi open, and Legions awaken. The dead rise again. The Dynasties have come to claim what is theirs.

In this episode we discuss the Necron race, and the beings that swear allegiance to their Dynasties.

Joining us for this episode is Jimothy!

Jan 15, 2020
Bonus Episode 15 - Return of the Primarchs
02:11:56

Us Prophets of the People have decided to sit down and muse upon the Primarchs. What were they like? What did they smell like? Do you think they ever wanted to just sit down and have a cheeseburger? More importantly we ask ourselves: What would it look like if a Primarch other than Roboute Guilliman had revived? Would we like that?

Joining Mark and Erik in this episode, for the last time, is Christian.

Jan 09, 2020
61 - The Hive Mind
02:24:28

Impossible to understand, quantify, or define. The sound of a billion billion voices is it's very essence. It's instinct; ancient. It's knowledge; immeasurable. It's hunger; insatiable. It drives the Tyranid swarm ever onward. It's will is unquestionable.

What is the Hive Mind? Where did it come from? How does it work? These are all questions that we don't know the answer to, and probably will never make the effort to learn. 

Joining us for this episode are Jon, our long time Tyranid friend, and also a brand new guest, Iain!

Listener Lore 7
01:16:20

We're on a roll folks!! Since we're the laziest podcasters you've ever seen, we decided to do the easy thing and just read the stories that you've submitted instead of actually doing a real episode! Pretty sneaky huh?

In this Listener Lore episode we finally get around to Brodie's Tournament winning lore, the Void Hunter Chapter of the Space Marines, Eric's 265th Mechanized Infantry Regiment Force Organization (or the MIRFO as we like to call it), Liam's Loota Kult, and William's take on another battle for Rynn's World, courtesy of the Crimson Fists Chapter.

Joining us, for the last time, is Christian. If you want to submit your story for us to share, send us an email to lorehammerpodcast@gmail.com.

Dec 18, 2019
Listener Lore 6
01:33:52

Welcome back to our backlog of lore where we share the stories written upon the back of the 40k universe... backs. In this episode we share stories from Syde's Dark Eldar in Commorragh, Guy's Imperial Knights, and Maci's Dark Angel Night Wing Company.

If you have stories you want to share, send them to lorehammerpodcast@gmail.com, and we promise to not make too much money off it.

Joining us for today's episode is Peter, and for the last time, Christian.

Dec 11, 2019
Bonus Episode 14 - Mark and Trevor Forever
47:28

Everyone got so sick of listening to Mark, that apparently Trevor is the only person willing to talk with him! In this episode Trevor... or Mark... explain to Mark... or Trevor... all about the story behind his new Ork list! Prepare your earholes for madness...

Joining Mark and Trevor on this episode is... no one... 

Dec 06, 2019
60 - Haemonculi Covens
02:31:18

You wake up in a cold panic and strain against the bindings that hold you on the table. Your eyes dart back and forth, trying to understand, trying to wake up. The air is warm on your skin, and damp. You look down at your own body to where your legs are, and elation takes you at seeing them. Then the nightmare rushes back. You, on a table, your body being cut away inch by delicate inch at the order of a Lord of Pain. He watches you as you scream, he watches you as you die. And then, births you so it can be enjoyed again. The nightmare ends, and your screams begin before a blade even comes near your forsaken body.

This episode is all about the Haemonculi! These Underworld rulers care little for the mundane people that live today, instead concerning themselves solely with their pursuits of pleasure.

Joining us for this episode for the first time is Sam.

Bonus Episode 13 - Recapping the Lorehammer Game Day
01:08:23

We just had our Lorehammer tournament, so Mark and Erik sat down with Todd and Canadian Steve to have a chat about it! If you missed the opportunity, don't worry! It's completely possible it happens again... sometime... somewhere...

Let your ear holes fill with jealousy and your mouth holes froth with anger upon learning what you missed.

Nov 20, 2019
Listener Lore 5
49:03

Well we finally decided that people might want to hear more Listener Lore! But it's just Mark and Erik so thats kind of a bummer... Anyways enjoy hearing about Hugh's Adeptus Mechanicus, Griff's worldbuilding, Not-a-Tyranid's Guardsmen, and Karl's Guardsmen. we're working our way through! (the massive massive backlog that is...)

Nov 13, 2019
59 - Oddboyz and Odd Boyz
02:09:58

OI! YOUSE! Iz you an Oddboy?? Or iz you a Boy wot iz odd?

While Orks seem to be an unsightly rabble of yelling green monsters, they view themselves very differently. There are strict caste systems and hierarchies within Ork Kultur that are determined by A. how big you are, and B. how useful you are. And sometimes C. how lucky you are. In this episode we talk about Oddboyz, but we also talk about the Boyz that don't necessarily fit in with standard Ork Kultur. These Boyz, while not Oddboyz, are definitely odd Boyz, and deserve attention just the same!

Joining us for this episode, is Dylan, the Orkiest Aussie we know!

Nov 06, 2019
58 - Path of the Seer
02:11:37

Like an itch that can't be scratched. Like a voice heard, but not seen. Like a breath on your neck from someone unseen.

For most Eldar, their entire lives will be spent denying their desire to let go. To give in to the swirling energy that is constantly around them. But these are not most Eldar. Those that walk the Path of the Seer are willing to walk the razors edge. They have placed their hands into the molten ice and shaped it to their will. They have witnessed the power beyond that attempts to devour their very souls. And they stand, defiant. Devoting themselves to the protection and survival of their race, they risk their souls for this purpose.

Joining us for this discussion of the Path of the Seer is Farseer Peter.

57 - Divisio Militaris
01:18:48

Beyond the mechanical Skitarii, there exist other many other tendrils of the Mechanicus' power. From voidships more massive than any that the Imperium uses, to secret police, to Ordinati larger than mountains, the Divisio Militaris is broken up into 9 bodies, each responsible for a different function. In this episode, we will highlight 5 of these Divisio (with the expectation that at some point we'll talk about the Collegia Titanica. SYKE!).

56 - Sisters of Silence, The Left Hand
02:20:12

Your finish your daemonic prayer to the Lords of the Waste. Your unholy invocation leaves your lips. Power grows within you. You raise your arms above your head and prepare to cast down the enemies of your Master when... it ends. The power, the pain, the blessing, all disappear. And there, striding through the haze of your euphoria, a diminutive human, in muted silver armor, the gorget covering the lower portion of her face. She stalks toward you, eyes trained on yours until it feels like nothing else in the galaxy matters except for your imminent doom. A scream escapes you as she approaches. Her eyes smile as she gives you your forever doom.

If you haven't already checked out the Warhammer Combat Cards game published by Flaregames, click the link! https://go.onelink.me/qYSQ/Lorehammer

In this episode we discuss all things Sisters of Silence! These wordless warriors are Humanity's ace in the pocket for dealing with the Immaterium, and in this episode you'll find out why. Joining us for this episode are James, and Matt, a traveler all the way from the UK!

Sep 25, 2019
55 - Adeptus Custodes, The Right Hand
02:39:39

Towering warriors clad in bright golden armor. Beings so holy that to see one is to be blessed by the God-Emperor Himself. They act of their own accord, ensuring everything they do is for the continued protection of the Savior of Humanity. They are the Adeptus Custodes, the Right Hand of the Emperor, and they bring death and destruction upon their foes.

54 - Imperial Planet Classification
01:57:03

Aaaaaaaaaaand we're back! Sorry for the late release folks, as some little nurglings infested our computer and deleted our recording! Clearly this information is very important and so we did our very best to make sure that you get it! In this episode, we talk about bodies. Specifically, heavenly bodies. More specifically, we talk about how the Imperium classifies all planets within the galaxy. It might not be the most exciting episode (we'll do another space marine episode at some point... maybe), but it is actually quite interesting, especially for all those people that like to world-build within the 40 universe!

53 - Heretic Astartes
03:20:17

Slavery to freedom. Abandonment to brotherhood. Betrayal to devotion. These and many more were promised to those Astartes that left the Imperium to join their brother's cause and rebel against the Emperor. In a world where your only value is the measure of what you can do for Humanity, it's no wonder that it's members can feel alone. In this episode, we discuss what a Heretic Astartes is, how they came to be, and how they continue to exist.

Joining us for this episode are Tim, and for the last time, Chris.

01:28:40

"Down below, where we dare not go, our gods are resting. Underneath the soil, on which we toil, our gods are resting. Your life would be forfeit, just stay in your closet, and pray the gods don't find you." - Poorly translated rhyme etched in blood found on Tomb World Stavon IX. Found after the planet was investigated for a highly irregular energy surge.

In Comorragh, the rule is "A place for everyone, and everyone in their place". If you don't know yours, you're probably already dead. This city preys on the weak and alone.

01:19:43

This episode is everything Astrological! Wait no... In this episode we're studying Astronomy! That's not right either... This episode is about Cosmology! (nailed it).

We wanted to finish our space travel series with an in depth look at what the Astronomican really is, where it came from, and how it works. We seemed to find a lot of our own misconceptions about this item, so we think you'll also find some good information in this!

Joining us once again, is Micah, and for the last time, Christian!

Mar 20, 2019
Bonus Episode 8 - The Dylan Show

Enjoi!

Joining us for this episode is Dylan, and a new guest Steve!

Mar 07, 2019

01:42:23

Terrifying mechanical monstrosities. Horrendous flesh amalgamations. Unthinkable daemonic contrivances. The Dark Mechanicum is responsible for many disturbing creations aided by Dark Powers, but they also are the primary suppliers of the Chaos Space Marines, and keepers of the Traitor Titan Legions. In this episode we talk about what they do, how they do it, and most importantly, WHY they do it.

Joining us, once again, is Colyn.

Jan 30, 2019

02:31:36

"Well hello Citizen!" * A robed and hooded stranger hands you a pamphlet* "Have you heard of the cul- ahem I mean Church of the Four Armed Emperor? We have services twice a week in subsection 23B of the City! Yes we know thats far underneath the streets, but we like privacy. We'll see you there!"

You stare at the pamphlet and an unshakable desire to learn more takes a hold of you. You find your way to the meeting, and are warmly greeted by more hooded and hunched figures...

*50 years later*

You stare in rapture as your Father finally emerges from his throne. His will searing through your mind thanks to the Princely being beside him. You raise your gun and yell your cultish ululations as your family assaults a local governments office. Tears stream down your face as you see the spaceships of your God enter the atmosphere. Your ascension is here.

In this Episode we talk all about the Genestealer Cults!

37 - Ork Klans
02:35:35

"All Orks is equal, but some Orks are more equal dan uvvas." - Goff Warboss Bugrat Skumdreg

Today we talk about the distinct personalities among Orks! What sets a Goff apart from a Bad Moon, or even an Evil Sunz! Get ready for some fun quotes and even weirder conversation. It's been a while since we recorded, so it took us a minute to get back into the swing of things.

Joining us today, for the first time, is a massive Ork fan all the way from Australia, Dylan!

If you want to know more about Erik offloading his poor choices (the Space Marine game key) check out our facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/lorehammerpodcast/

 

Nov 14, 2018
36 - Commorragh, the Dark City
02:10:53

Commorragh. A vile, infested land of outsiders, bounty hunters and slaves. A breeding ground of a race so hedonistic, they birthed a god of Chaos with their immoral ways. Commorragh. The largest city to ever exist in the galaxy, so large that an entire planet could not wholly contain it. So large that it spans the entire galaxy. Commorragh. Riches untold are hidden in it depths, and knowledge so ancient that you would risk your very life to attain it.

Commorragh, the Dark City. Home of the Drukhari.

In this episode we discuss all things Commorragh! Joining us, for the last time, is Christian.

Oct 24, 2018
35 - The Path of the Eldar
02:54:47

When your life had no meaning, we gave you a purpose. When you were wandering aimlessly, we offered you direction. When you were tempted by the overwhelming existence of the universe, we gave you focus. Come walk with us on the Path. Journey, and be redeemed.

Listener Lore 1
54:38

This is the first episode in our Listener Lore series. In it, we read the stories and information that were submitted to us by our listeners about their armies in 40k. We recieved so many that we couldn't possibly fit it all in one episode, so stay tuned for many more to come!

Oct 03, 2018
34 - Ordo Hereticus and the Adepta Sororitas
02:44:06

Have you ever caught your neighbour worshipping a daemon? How about them plotting a revolt against the Imperium? Practising black magic? It might seem like all hope is lost for their immortal soul, but WAIT! You can save them! Just report them to your nearest Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor and in no time at all that Witchhunter will have absolved your friend of all sin! You might never see them again, but thats the price you pay for redemption...

In this episode we talk about the second largest organisation within the Imperium, the Ordo Hereticus. We also talk about the military branch of the Church, the Sisters of Battle.

Joining us, for the last time, is Christian.

Sep 26, 2018
33 - Ordo Xenos and the Deathwatch
02:18:22

Where does a Space Marine rise to when he is already the best? What further glories are there for him? Where might a Marine go when he must be punished for a transgression? Where would a shamed Marine go, where nobody even knows his Chapter? The Deathwatch of course! In this Episode, we discuss the Ordo Xenos, the Inquisitorial Ordo responsible for protecting the human race from the threat of the alien.

Joining us, once again, is Colyn.

Sep 12, 2018
32 - Ordo Malleus and the Grey Knights
02:14:48

The Threat Beyond. That malicious temptation that claws at humanities mind in an attempt to turn all that we are into a mess of Chaos worshipping scum that go buy more GW models. If there was ever a need for a protector, this is it. These are the silent heroes; their deeds never shouted from battlements or paraded in the streets.

In this episode we talk about the Ordo Malleus and, more importantly, the Grey Knights. Joining us for the first time, is Brant the Broken.

Aug 31, 2018
31 - Nobody Expected the Inquisition
02:19:11

What keeps you safe? What watches the night to make sure that the darkness doesn't consume you? What force prevents your soul from being seduced and compromised, and then "takes care" of you when it happens? Obviously Batman, but that's not what we're talking about today. Today is all about the Imperium's secret police. The Inquisition is a creation of the Emperor of Mankind, and as such knows no limits to their authorities. Today we will be setting the groundwork of the Inquisition to prepare you for your higher education of the Ordos Majoris in the coming episodes.

Joining us, once again, is Micah.

Aug 15, 2018
30 - Chaos Ascendant
02:14:01

So you wish to wield Power, do you? You have felt the cravings? The desire to rid yourself of these paltry flesh bonds that you have? Then come closer... Listen to the voices in your head. Those voices so sweet, so beguiling, so... tempting. Give in to your cravings and give yourself. To Chaos.

In this episode we discuss those beings that have forsworn their souls to the Dark Gods. We talk about what gifts the Ruinous Powers bestow upon their servants, as well as what it takes to get them.

Joining us once again, is Skyler.

Aug 01, 2018
29 - Life of a T’au
02:29:12

Joining us for this episode is Rio. 

Jul 18, 2018
Bonus Episode 5 - The Knights of House Arokis
01:34:57

Welcome children welcome! Come, sit by the fire. Close your eyes and imagine with me. Imagine a time when great Metal Gods roamed these lands to protect us from the Beasts. When our sons and daughters were called by the Sorcerors to leave this land behind and journey into the stars to fight a Gods battle. You might think you know our history, the story of our people... You are wrong. Listen now, and learn from whence the House of Arokis was born.

This episode is about the story behind Mark's Knight House. It doesn't exist in 40k canon, but we truly believe that the universe only gets better when we add to it (within the realm of reason obviously... LOOKING AT YOU PRIMARIS MARINES!). If you enjoyed this episode and you happen to have something similar to share, we would absolutely love to read it, and possibly even share it! Please send us a message on facebook @lorehammer, or email us at lorehammerpodcast@gmail.com.

Enjoy!

Jul 05, 2018
28 - Tyranid Hive Fleets
01:47:47

Behemoth. Kraken. Leviathan.

These are monsters, abominations, and terrors from Humanity's past. Terrible creatures of such unknowable size and power that the very names invoked fear and doom. In the days of the Glorious Imperium, these names have resurfaced to identify an enemy whose only desire is to feed upon our flesh, and in doing so grow ever stronger. 

Harken to our tale, and maybe the wisdom within can save your pitiful soul from the Great Devourer.

Joining us, for the last time, is Christian.

DISCLAIMER: Jordan was not with us during our recording so please forgive any messed up volume and levels. We don't know how to use technology.

Jun 06, 2018
26 - C'tan
01:51:33

In the beginning of time; at the dawn of creation, the C'tan were born. Vast creatures whose very beings encompassed planets and even stars, they were ignorant of all life that existed... until one fateful day that a dying race, on the outskirts of the galaxy, chose to break that thin veneer of ignorance, and introduce them to life. Thus the Star Gods were born.

We were none of us prepared.

In this episode we discuss all things C'tan! Ever wondered who the real Old Ones were? Well you'll have to listen to find out!

Joining us, for the last time, is Christian.

May 23, 2018
Bonus Episode 4 - Homebrew Xenos and Shelf Armies
01:58:53

Welcome to our bonus episode! As with all bonus episodes, this is in no way cannon lore and only exists to share our world of Warhammer with you... THE PEOPLE! In this episode we talk about the many times mentioned shelf armies that Mark and Christian have placed upon The Shelf. We go into detail about the backstory of each army, the model line chosen to represent them, and what rules they would play as.

Do you have a self created 40k army? Share it with us so we can viciously tear it apart! Just kidding. We’ll be impressed.

Joining us, for the last time, is Christian. 

May 17, 2018
25 - Harlequins
02:26:36

This episode is all about Harlequins! Those clowns! Those jokers! Those thespians! Those... warriors!?!? Who would have thought that these Eldar would be among the most deadly of their race! If you didn't know that, then listen to the podcast! That's the whole point.

Joining us this episode, once again, is Peter. The most dramatic person we know.

May 09, 2018
24 - The Ecclesiarchy
03:12:20

In this episode, we discuss the space church of the God Emperor. We'll share important information, such as what exact angle your legs should bend in supplication to the Emperor-Savior (spoiler alert, its 27.85 degrees). It's a long one, but it's a gooder so buckle up and break out those paint brushes and Imperial Creed notebooks!

Joining us for this episode once again, is Skyler!

Apr 26, 2018
23 - Adeptus Mechanicus
02:14:30

Apr 11, 2018
22 - The Imperial Guard
01:53:03

In this episode we discuss the Astra Militarum. This is the biggest fighting force that the Imperium of Man can bring to bear. This backbone of the Imperium is capable of throwing such massive numbers of bodies at an enemy, that the sheer weight of them is enough to ensure victory. Learn just how difficult it would be to imagine Humanity without its greatest display of power.

Joining us for this episode, is Paul.

Mar 29, 2018

Mar 02, 2018

Joining us, for the last time, is Christian.

19 - The Minor Xenos Races Part 4
01:59:03

Finally. We have trudged through this swamp of information (or sometimes lack thereof) on as many of the xenos races as are listed on the Lexicanum website. We hope you enjoyed listening to them way more than we did preparing them (seriously, it was a struggle). But if you can manage to get through this last episode, we promise that there are even greater things beyond the horizon! Joining us for the first time, is Skyler. He actually has been connected with Warhammer for a while, and brings a fun take into the episode!

Bonus Episode 1 - Female Representation in Warhammer 40,000

As always, the reason we discuss anything is to create a discussion. If there’s something you disagree with, or maybe even agree with (much more unlikely) let us know through Facebook, Twitter, or email.

 

Oh... and everyone? Just take a deep breath. It’s going to be ok. We hope.
