Huh. So my noble cohosts seem to have forgotten that along with a podcast (that we do weekly), we also need a write up to post WITH the podcast. Seems like a silly oversight… Overly Verbose Battle Report Writer to the rescue!
Additionally, the winners of our giveaway contest are announced! But not here, that’ll be done on Facebook tomorrow afternoon. A huge thank you to everyone who entered, and we hope the prizes are enjoyed!
I thought that people might appreciate having a look at the prizes we’re offering for our current Contest! Mine is the easiest, and therefore gets first billing. Whoever wins my prize will be shipped a “Combo Smite” baseball cap very similar to the one I’ve been wearing for a month now. They’re comfy, they keep the sun out of your eyes, and they show your support of the best WarMachine podcast on the internet! (1) Here we see a brand-new hat in its native environment.. the hat comes in 2 sizes, “Small-Medium” and “Medium-Large”, and they have some stretch. My enormous, sputnik-like head fits into a “Medium-Large” very comfortably (or did after about a day of wearing it to get the stretch right). Continue reading →
So for our Anniversary Podcast report, we tossed around a few ideas: a large 3 way battle, a small round-robin tournament between the hosts, even the possibility of doing a repeat battle from Podcast 001, Ossyan vs Nemo3. But in the end, we decided to go full-jenk and do a Highlander Battle.
Nick invented a modified scenario for us to battle over, and we stumbled into a few hiccups, but it was still a great game… and surprisingly educational! Plus, with all three of us playing, there’s 3 times the usual levels of bickering! Who would want to miss that?
Also! Contest announcement! Details at the beginning of the podcast and the end of the write-up!
A few weeks ago we had our first ever giveaway contest here on Combo Smite… it was silly but fun, and we got a fair number of people who put in guesses.
But in the end, one of our long-time listeners, Bennep, managed to win the prize… a small-based solo of his choice. Benoit (as he is named in real life) chose Sylys, an excellent option, and we here at Combo Smite happily sent him the model.
I asked Benoit to send me a picture of his Sylys when it arrived, and just this weekend he sent me the following two pictures, which I am happy to share with the Combo Smite community:
Bennep also wanted to show off his Ashlynn, even though we didn’t send her to him… and since he did such a great job painting her and Sylys up, I’m happy to oblige!
Although the sign does say he likes Adam the best… which makes me less happy… ^_^ Continue reading →
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!)
Just a quick announcement that our first ever Giveaway contest is now officially closed for guesses.
I’d like to take the opportunity to again thank our mercenary co-host, Adam (“AdamtheHutt” on ye ol’ PP Forums) for the prize of a small based model of your choice for whoever the lucky winner ends up being, and to everyone who put in guesses… we got everything from 15 to 87! Hopefully our next contest won’t highlight my ineptitude at editing quite so much, but as long as everyone had fun, I’m happy to have been part of it!
The winner will be announced both in a new thread on Monday here on the website, and on the podcast itself (which is slated to be recorded tonight… an epic battle between Karchev the Terrible, and Kaelyssa the Pretty Awesome)! Thanks again, and good luck!
This will be a quick post: AdamtheHutt, long-time Combo Smite Mercenary co-host, has issued a challenge to our listeners… and the prize is a Small Based Solo of your Choice! Mailed straight to you! For free!
