Podcast 210 – Pretty Ramble-y, Even for Us

This week we discuss a couple tournament list pairings for Darrell (Menoth) and Nick (Crucible Guard). Lists are put below the cut… we also briefly discuss the new CID, Adepticon registration (Marc got in… but not for the WarMachine tournament!), and other hobby-related nonsense.

Podcast 209 – Of Dawnmowers and Kings…

… well, not really of kings. Just sounded very Lewis Carroll in my head.

Anyway! This post is going up a teensy bit late because SOMEBODY (Marc) forgot to do it in advance. I never claimed to be a smart man, so here we are. This episode gets Darrell, Nick, and I back to discuss the new Retribution Battle Engine (forever known as the Dawnmower), a purchase timeline for Marc to get his Crucible Guard, and many, many other things scattered in there.

Podcast 208 – Crucible Guard Tournament List Pairing

Nick and I sit down to discuss some Crucible Guard lists Nick is excited about (and ramble about other stuff a bit… this was certainly one of our less focused episodes!).

Podcast 207 – List Dojo for Assassinations with Cygnar

Nick and I sit down to discuss lists for Cygnar built from the ground-up for assassination, because I’m not smart enough to keep multiple win-conditions in my mind at once.

Move in, shoot stuff dead, done.

Podcast 206 – Retribution Dynamic Update!

To all our Canadian listeners: happy Turkey Day!

To everyone else on Earth… happy Monday, I guess? Unless you’re not reading this or listening to this on a Monday, in which case… yeah, moving on.

The Retribution CID released, and we sit down and talk about it! Takes us a bit longer than usual, but it is interesting stuff, give it a listen while eating turkey… or whatever you’re eating, I suppose!

Also, a heads up: Marc is away in a cottage in the middle of nowhere for the next week or so to try and get all his writing done for the year (November and December are extremely, extremely busy months), so can’t say for sure there will be a podcast next week, but we will try!

Podcast 205 – Post-WTC Discussion

Nick, Darrell, and I sit down for some post-WTC discussion.
Congrats to all the members of all the Canadian teams for doing us proud, and for the Australians for being the first country to claim two WTC victories! Nicely done, folks.

Now with that spoiled, we can focus on how the various Factions and warcasters did. And we won’t agree about much, except that Cygnar is the worst Faction ever in all time forever.

Podcast 204 – WTC “Analysis”

This week, Marc, Nick, and Darrell sit down with the WTC list statistics, and find a couple we like and a couple we think are insane.

Good times.

Best of luck to all the teams on their way or already in Poland for the tournament! And, of course, bester of luck to the Team Canadas (even if Nick is upset about double-Cryx teams…)

Podcast 203 – Comparing Old Lists to New Lists!

Hey folks! This week’s podcast isn’t a little late because Marc forgot to upload it last night but because… uhhh… reasons?

We take a look at some of the lists we were running back in the misty origins of 3rd edition, comparing those lists to how we would play the same casters today. We also speak a little bit about theme lists, and Marc’s continued dislike of how they’re handled… but they are what they are, right?

Give it a listen! Let us know what ya think!

Podcast 202 – WTC-Style Tournament Battle Reports!

Team Combo Smite went off to Guelph to attend a WTC-style event… which, as we’ve said before, is often the best WarMachine you can enjoy!

And we recorded within hours of finishing the event… so you can all learn from the guys’ mistakes!

… I mean ‘victories’. Yeah. Those. Learn from ’em!

Podcast 201 – Dark-Skinned Menites and Gay Swans

We have a weird one for you this week, folks. Prompted by a question by the incomparable Jason Lucas (hi Jason! I still have your sweater!), Nick, Darrell, and I discuss the issue of race(s) in the Iron Kingdoms, as well as briefly touching on the issue of LGBTQ+ in WarMachine.

Before that we talk GenCon, new releases, tournaments… lots of WarMachine this week, as well as some interesting talking points.

As always, we’re happy to hear from any of our listeners through e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook, and we don’t claim to be experts on these issues, but hey, it was a slow week for playing games!

We’ll be back next week with more game-stuff, fewer bizarre talking points. Probably. Thanks for listening!
