Podcast 026 – eSkarre vs eSorscha – "The Bane Riders stats are Fucking Awful!" – Adam

In continuing with preparation for the Southern Ontario Open, another 35 pt game. People will skin their knees and worse probably. A drink or two will be spilled. Someone might fall off a bike. I don’t know. I was there but I don’t quite remember what happened. I’m sure Marc will fix this. My brain can’t work… good… right now.
(Marc: Oh boy… if you’re expecting ME to fix this, we are all in deep trouble…)


(Marc: This week’s podcast was between the undead swarms of Adam against the Imperialist Khador led by Aaron. Adam has been something of an unstoppable juggernaut these last few months… some close matches, certainly, but would Aaron be able to finally break that streak? Listen in and find out!)

Victory Cryx!
Surely it’s the confidence boost that’s needed to succeed at a tournament and also the spirit crushing final blow that is the dark harbinger of a series of terrible defeats at the hand of strangers. By the times this drops the tournament will have already happened. In fact, as I write this I know the outcome of the Southern Ontario WarmaHordes Young Bloods Tournament. I could divulge this information if you can’t wait until Wednesday to find out how we fared. But some might find that mean. Perhaps but they’ll have to pay me more than the people who have paid me to run my mouth. I’ll do anything for money.
(whispered) ANYTHING.

Or just look it up yourselves! Jesus, what is this? 1992? Having a hard time connecting with your 28.8 dial up modem? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

(Marc: Seriously though, I’m hoping to have the tournament podcast out on Wednesday, assuming Nick gets his voice back. It was a great day of games, and I’m really looking forward to sharing it with everyone! And we’ll have lots of content going up this week… painting progress, Nick’s and my battle reports from the tournament, a batrep from last week between Menoth and Circle… lots of stuff!)
