The tides of war once again crash against the shore that is this weekly podcast. Tides don’t really crash, do they? They slowly rise and recede. Uh… The filthy toddlers feet pitter-patter along as the family’s dog also runs amok, illegally and annoyingly off-leash, across the beach that is this weekly podcast. I’m going to drop the beach metaphor. Two dudes in their 30’s place small steam-punk miniatures on a table across from one another and roll dice to determine the outcome of mock battles in accordance with the rules of said steam-punk miniatures game.
As the title indicates this weeks game was between Retribution and Khador. We decided to try a different system for match-ups instead of the inconsistent and lethargic text message asking for a game. In an effort to make some generalist lists which would better suited for tournaments where opponents aren’t prearranged we randomly chose our opponents. Local Cryx phenom Adam opted to sit out and Cygnar/Menoth upstart Marc couldn’t make it because he was house hunting or getting a butterfly tramp-stamp or some such nonsense so it was Kassem vs Gaven and Nick vs myself.
(Note from Marc: We also announce the winner of our first contest in this podcast… for spoilers, just scroll down to the end of the battle report!)
