No Podcast This Week Because Nick…

That’s really it. No podcast because Nick.

All joking aside, Nick apparently has lost the Internet (and all will to live) until Tuesday, so we couldn’t record anything this week. We’ll have plenty of stuff to discuss next week, I suspect, and I’d like to take a moment to thank all the brave Skorne players who are muscling through their CID, trying to balance their Faction. Carry on, my wayward soulstones!

Marc would also like to let everyone know that he wrote over ten thousand words in the last three days on his fourth novel. Progress! It’s still 30k from being finished, but that’s okay!

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.

No Podcast This Week!

Just a quick note that we won’t be recording or putting out a podcast this week due to Nick spending all weekend watching the WTC and Marc spending that time working.

Yay work. It’s… something.

Anyway! We’ll be back this week with new shinies! Sorry for the delay, hope everyone enjoyed the WTC, and obviously a huge congratulations to Australia for winning! Way to go, guys!
(We’re also extremely proud of all the Canadian teams, obviously!)

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!

This week, Nick and I sit down and discuss a couple lists EACH! The luxury! Nick focuses on lists you can make RIGHT NOW with the models already available to Crucible Guard, while I… do not.

I want Mackay. Give her to me. Now.

Anyway! Give it a listen, let us know what you think!
