2022-02-1602:44:04

A journey 40,000 years in the making. From His humble beginnings born in distant humanities past, to His rise and ascension as the God-Saviour of mankind, the Emperor’s history is shrouded in mystery. His powers are transcendent. His intellect is unmatched. His goal; to protect and secure humanity's future as rulers of the galaxy. And His road to this destination? Paved with the blood of innumerable bodies. Noble sacrifices and necessary murders go hand in hand for the fulfillment of His vision. This episode is all about the Emperor. Where did He come from? What is His purpose? Why is He the way that He is? All these questions and more are answered in this episode, in which we are joined by Jordan, and for the last time, Chris.If you want to get involved with our Discord, Patreon, or merchandise, click the link below!https://linktr.ee/Lorehammer40kOur Sponsors:* Check out Express VPN: expressVPN.com/LOREHAMMERSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/lorehammer-a-warhammer-40k-podcast/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

98 - Space Wolves

2022-02-0302:43:442

Asked for more than any other episode ever, the Space Wolves are a Chapter that loves wolves. They love wolves almost more than they love killing Inquisitors and other Space Marines. And if that weren't enough to pump you up for this episode, their Rune Priests definitely aren't psykers. Lorehammer loves the Space Wolves more than Space Wolves love wolves... this episode gets dangerous...Joining us today for this glorious and thrilling tale are Peter, and Chris, for the last time.If you want to get involved with our Discord, Patreon, or merchandise, click the link below!https://linktr.ee/Lorehammer40kOur Sponsors:* Check out Express VPN: expressVPN.com/LOREHAMMERSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/lorehammer-a-warhammer-40k-podcast/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

2022-01-2102:14:31

You feel the cold metal jack insert into your brain. A shock travels through your body as you welcome back your other half. A surge of impatience rushes through you, and it takes all your focus to calm him. The beast that you now inhabit shivers in anticipation, desperate to visit carnage upon your enemies. Your moorings are released, and with a resounding boom you take your first step. Death incarnate. Honor materialized. You and your Knight rush headlong into the fray, dismantling your opponents one stomp at a time, allowing your battlecannon to roar your praises across the battle, filling the air with the sound of your holy destruction.This episode is all about Imperial Knights! Mark finally decided to grace your ears with an awesome and amazing story that only Knights can bring. From their inception, to their inner workings, we take you through the entire journey.

As the galaxy slowly gets smaller for the Tau, their need for haste to spread the Greater Good only intensifies. With the time between the Spheres shrinking between every Expansion, they are now more than ever driven by a need to have others support their philosophy; to aid them in it’s spread. Desiring to push beyond their Empire’s confines during the 4th Sphere, they invited disaster upon themselves, only compounded by their need to lie and spread propaganda. And in their ignorance of the galaxy they live in, their 5th Sphere has only been met by more soul crushing conflict.Join us, and Rio, as we dive into the Tau’s 4th and 5th Spheres.Our Sponsors:* Check out Express VPN: expressVPN.com/LOREHAMMERSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/lorehammer-a-warhammer-40k-podcast/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

“Concerning Squats. We are rather peculiar creatures, content more with our own affairs of mining and trading agreements than the state of the Imperium and the galaxy as a whole. We are stalwart drinking companions, true warriors, and you’ll never find a better or stronger friend than a Squat. While our current predicament is a shame, with the right encouragement and direction, we may yet see a resurgence of the Squat race in our galaxy.” - Ancestor Lord Bilboa, 245.M36This episode is all about Squats!

Previously released on the Let's Talk Lorehammer podcast, this episode was a meeting of brilliant minds including Mark, Erik, Matt and Bob. Our discord server has undertaken a massive project this past year in its attempt to recreate our version of the Necromunda world and book, which we dubbed the Necrommunity. In this episode we work together to build a hive city from the ground up, thinking and imagining every possible facet of a hive city.The audio was recorded remotely, and therefore is not the usual quality of Lorehammer. We thank you for your understanding!If you would like to be involved with the Necrommunity, please join our discord server!

94 - Ynnari

2021-10-2002:08:55

The Aeldari have stood on the precipice of obliteration for thousands of years. As millennia pass, so too does the brilliancy that once covered the entirety of the galaxy. Doomed to extinction since their Fall some 15 thousand years ago, they have desperately held on to life for as long as possible, clawing at the skeins of fate, grasping for a future. And finally, that new future has come. Ynnead, the God of Death. Its awakening breathed new life into a race beaten down and tread upon. Its chosen priestess, Yvrainne, binds together the Aeldari, convincing them to abandon old tradition, to shake off their depression, to embrace a new path. She will usher in the destruction of the Great Enemy, She Who Thirsts. And through this, guarantee the survival of her race.In this episode, we cover all things Ynnari! This relatively new faction is ready to fit right into the grim dark reality that is Warhammer 40,000.

Welcome to a brand new kind of bonus episode! After many long years of ridiculing and poking fun at all of your submitted lore, of criticizing sans critiquing, we have taken it upon ourselves to create a confusing mess of an episode to help you do that!

93 - Militarum Tempestus

2021-07-2202:10:39

Excellence. Discipline. Obedience. These three words capture the essence of the Tempestus Scions. If the Imperial Guard are the hammer and the wave, then the Militarum Tempestus is the knife and the poison. These elite troops are trained (read: indoctrinated) from as young as 6, placed into Ecclesiarchal run orphanages to be educated (read: brainwashed) on all the most important of duties (read: complete and absolute loyalty). This episode dives into the life of the Tempestus Scion. Where do they come from? How are they created? What do they do? Joining us for this episode are Logan and Zac!

92 - The Carcharodon Astra

2021-07-0102:25:28

Savageness to make other Astartes uneasy. A fleet to make any space farer jealous. And enough secrecy to convince any Inquisitor of wrongdoing. The Carcharodon Astra operate in a class all their own. They circle above, watching and waiting for the opportunity to unleash their heavenly rage upon the enemies of the Emperor. Fiercely loyal, and utterly opposed to any that aren’t, they are proficient Space Marine killers. As promised, so we have delivered! Joining us on this episode are Peter, and for the last time, Christian.

THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS. In this raw and intimate exposé, Colyn from Cold Open Stories popped by the studio to walk us through three of his more recently released audio dramas. We heavily discuss Colyn’s creative process, as well as the history and the future of Cold Open Stories. The three audio dramas we focused on were; “However Small, However Hidden”, “Hounds of Bedlam”, and “Agtril, the Counterfeit Blade”. By the time you’re finished with this episode, you should already be queuing up some stories from Cold Open Stories. You can find them on Spotify! But just in case you’re having trouble finding them, here's a link to the website. https://www.coldopenstories.com/ Our Sponsors: * Check out Express VPN: expressVPN.com/LOREHAMMER Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/lorehammer-a-warhammer-40k-podcast/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
91 - The Minotaurs Chapter

91 - The Minotaurs Chapter

2021-05-2802:55:521

Some Chapters have a history that is detailed through the millennia with glories won, battles fought, and brothers lost. Others keep their histories a secret from prying eyes. Still others have no history to be shared at all. The Minotaurs Chapter has been an enigma since its inception, and those that attempt to uncover its secrets are met with sealed entries and misinformation. They are often seen as little more than beasts in bronzed armor, willing to rip out the throat of their brothers once the order is given. They are set apart from the Astartes, partly their own choice, and partly because many refuse to work with them. In this episode we dive into this mysterious Chapter with all the gusto and aplomb that you can expect from the Lorehammer team! Joining us on this episode are Dylan, and for the last time Chris.

I have to disagree that it is necessary to start with a small self-contained, or at least self-explanatory, story to get into WH40k. Myself, I started with a premise - fantasy world in space, except everything is different! - and from there dived into each aspect to see how the WH40K version differed. I think the first aspect I dived into was the Warp because "how does magic work?" is always a question on my mind. That might not work for everyone. It might be specifically for me because I attach more to lore than to characters, but I suspect I am not special.

New to the hobby. Found this to help increase my lore knowledge. Still early in the series and plan on seeing it through. That being said, the amount of diversions and interruptions created by Erik to make points that do not serve the narrative or the discussion, but seem to only serve his ego are driving me crazy. Please tell me it gets better in the later episodes. These episodes would flow so much better and be 30-40 minutes shorter without these pointless tangential arguments.

Used to play 40k in the 90s as a teenager, then lost touch with it until recently and was intested in how the game and the lore had changed over the years. So this podcast is everything I need in learning and re learning the fascinating universe of Warhammer. These guys do a great job of explaining everything in detail while keeping it interesting
