This week is just Marc and Todd discussing some Grymkin fake rules… Grymkin have a handful of new shinies to talk about, and we do just that!
Also, take a look after the cut for a few lists Todd has been working on!
Just a quick note from myself, Nick, Darrell, and the rest of the team (Kassem, Todd, Jeremy, and Steve) to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year!
I’m busily assembling all my new Crucible Guard models, hoping to get them primed and painted before Adepticon. Additionally, I’ve committed to a few games with some local WTC players, trying to get my brain back into the game. While I know now I’ll never be a top-class player, I can at least crawl my way back into the middle of the pack, and that’d be nice!
We’re all looking forward to another year of the podcast, talking about new releases and hopefully getting back to discussing tactics and batreps (what a concept!).
So here’s looking at a bright and fun 2019! Thanks from all of us for sticking with us!
Look, it can’t just be me that thinks the name “Steelhead Ironhead” is the dumbest thing ever, right? Right.
Nick and I discuss the new Steelhead stuff, in its meta-rule state! Give it a listen!
No podcast this week (Nick is starting a new job, and Marc is on Day 9 of “No More Days Off Until Xmas”), but I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know about a few charity events coming up!
Specifically, Artimage (friend of the podcast and frequent nemesis to Marc) is taking donations for his Extra Life charity event:
Extra Life Link
The quick notes are that for every $5(CAD) you donate, you get 1 entry into a draw for a painted copy of Blackstone Fortress! I own a copy of the game already, and I gotta tell you, it looks pretty amazing… I painted the models for a buddy, and they’re really cool. I haven’t played the game yet, but the rules look clean, and GW has said they will be supporting the game in the future… I highly recommend getting your hands on a copy if you can, and for $5 you can both support a great cause (the Hamilton, Ontario Children’s Hospital at McMaster University) and get a chance at a great game!
Artimage will be doing a livestream for his gaming and for the drawing on Wednesday (link here), and he’s doing another draw for a few neat prizes in order to drum up some additional interest (link for that here).
Moral of the story, go donate a few bucks, and get a chance at a great game, plus every dollar donated goes straight to the McMaster Children’s Hospital! Win-win.
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.
… 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.
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!
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!
