Path to Glory

The Warhammer Underworlds podcast that focuses on competitive gaming, player development, and community growth.

Path to Glory 86: Online Brawls & Skittershank’s Clawpack ft. Mark Breault

August 10th, 2022

In this episode, Aman continues his pseudo 'warband wisdom' series by sitting down with Mark, author behind the Determined Effort blog, as we discuss his recent success with Skittershank's Clawpack at the most recent online community event. Mark breaks down his deck, his games, and shares his core strategies surrounding the warband. We also discuss how to tackle certain matchups in the current meta. If you've been trying to make the skaven assassins work, and have been struggling, this is the episode for you. We end the episode off with our classic, "rapid fire round." 

Path to Glory 85: Warcry Heart of Ghur

July 30th, 2022

Games Workshop sent us a free preview copy of the newest Warcry box set, Heart of Ghur. This set kicks off the newest season of Warcry which includes brand new rules, mechanics, and warbands. Zach was quite keen to do this episode and shares his love for the fast paced, brutal skirmish game. As we are an Underworlds podcast, we view the box through the lens of an Underworlder who might be interested in taking the plunge into Warcry, but isn't so sure.

Hopefully this episode convinces you to brave the brutal and savage woods of Ghur. Just watch out for dudes trying to inject you with plague ridden swamp water. Yeah, best to stay clear. Oh, and watch out for the bull helmet dudes too. They'll light you on fire. You know what, maybe just avoid everyone. 

Path to Glory 84: Warhammer World & Zarbag’s Gitz ft. Niccolo Ciuppani

July 28th, 2022

In this episode, Aman is joined by special guest, Nick - the Italian Underworlds Stallion! We kick off things off by chatting about the Hexbane's Hunters previews before diving into Nick's undefeated Zarbag's Gitz deck that podiumed at the Warhammer World Mini-Clash. Nick recounts his games and his strategies, which provide deep insight into how he pilots the diminutive fighters. Inexorably, we end up chatting about the meta and discuss who we think is currently sitting on top. 

In addition, we have a slightly different 'Sleeve it or Leave it" section where we discuss whether or not Dark Inversion should be restricted. We end the episode with some rapid fire (shoutout to my boy Ironhail) questions! 

Path to Glory 83: Alberta Classic & Shadeborn ft. Derek

July 11th, 2022

Listen in as Aman interviews Derek, aka "Kaptain Murder", on his recent win at the Alberta Classic in June - the largest Underworlds event held annually in Canada. Aside from recapping the event, the Kaptain also discusses his winning Shadeborn deck and his thoughts on why he believes they're a top tier warband.

We managed to also sprinkle in a little FaR speculation and meta talk! Our guest may or may not be heard cracking open multiple cold ones.
