Our Team

The Normal Blokes is a Brisbane-based podcast, dedicated to improving the competitive 40k experience. We talk local events, meta, list building, tactics and hobby.

Hosts Luke, Dineeth, Jordan, Liam and Nathan will be discussing current happenings, and also interviewing guests from around Australia and overseas to talk 40k. Our aim is to improve the 40k competitive experience and to grow the Brisbane 40k scene into a thriving positive community.

Our Team:

Luke “Mr. Soulburst” Pearce

Resident Eldar/Grey Knight player, mastermind tactician and all-round good bloke. Some say he hasn’t lost a game this year, others simply say no one survives to say otherwise. If his dice don’t turn on him that is.

Dineeth “Captain Submarine” Liyanagama

Playing anything and everything Imperium (with a recent heretical foray into T’au), Dineeth tries to make unconventional garbage competitive and 9 times out of 10 fails miserably, however still has a good laugh doing so.

Jordan “Captain Smash” Bennett

Our local friendly Blood Angels player, with the biggest jawline in South-East Queensland. Enjoys a good gym session, choking out his enemies and spending all his CP turn 1.

Liam “Overlord” Hackett

If you ever wanted to see poetry in motion, watch a 40k game played by our very own Doc Hackett. After an incredible 2022 taking out a number of events including Uprising: Adelaide, Warmaster singles and being part of the wining Australian 2022 WTC team, he’s player with a skill level as high as his hairline and offers some great input for our team.

Nathan “World Burner” Bleakley

Nathan, although the newest addition to our podcast team, is a seasoned veteran of the long war that is 40k. As the unofficial (but kind of official) accountant of the team, Nathan loves an evening of pairings data-crunching and faction breakdowns. The only think he enjoys more than burning worlds in the name of chaos undivided is a good Excel spreadsheet.

Nathan is also an avid runner, which means he makes all his charge rolls with ease. Most of the time.

We also regularly ask special guests onto our show – look out for these appearances!
