The Veteran Gamer Reenlisted

Drinkn' Beer, Rolln' Dice & Talkn' Shit

Military veterans as well as table-top war gamers who drink beer, talk shit and roll dice.  Talking about Warhammer 40K and other games.

“#1 in his own mind and apparently his pants” Episode 41

Through the series of tubes known as the “Information Super Highway”, we could talk with Frankie Giampapa, “G-Pop”, from Frontline Gaming.   Ray and Frankie are a pair of fairy fuckers so we thought it would be good to get them both on Mic to talk about Dark Eldar.  You won’t catch Andy calling them Drukari.

During the recording Andy was drinking the Grapefruit Solis from Mike Hess Brewing in San Diego. 

“Grapefruit Solis kicks it up a notch by taking an awesome San Diego–style IPA and pumping it full of citrusy grapefruit—we're talking real fruit, zest and juice. The hops complement the zestiness, and the subtle malt makes this an award-winning, crisp, and deliciously refreshing India pale ale.” 16.5° Plato, 80 IBU, 7.5 ABV

It has an interesting wide mouthed can that makes the can more of a cup.  It was very tasty and it comes highly recommended.

“Necrons are like sex with a condom.” Episode 40

We finally get around to talking about Ray’s side chick, Necrons.  We also talk some Maximum Effort, After Action Review, a little Deathwatch, and Ray learns about Yohimbe.

What we are drinking? Ray picked up two 6 packs from Strand Brewing Company.  We drank their Atticus IPA:

Atticus India Pale Ale has a full-bodied, toasted caramel base with a hint of bittersweet.  Expertly blended layers of hop aroma, character and flavor display a profoundly disciplined and redefining approach to the West Coast IPA.

7.2% ALC BY VOL

and the 24th St Pale Ale.

Brewed with pale, crystal and German Munich malts and hopped with Summit, Cascade and Amarillo, this pale ale is incredibly well balanced.  It is slightly floral, slightly fruity and ends with a subtle bitter finish.

6.1% ALC BY VOL

"The Brown Magic" Episode 39

Now that the FAQ we have all been remaking and rethinking lists.  Andy took this opportunity to call in some professional help at The Brown Magic.  ITC Champion Nick Nanavati started a 40K coaching business.  Andy took advantage of the list doctor and personal phone call with his newest team members and Adepticon Champion Matt Root.  We recorded the phone conversation with Matt’s permission and we are releasing it for you today.  We follow it up with some discussion of our own.  Andy also gets salty about the ITC Hobby track.

What are we drinking? We drank the King Harbor Brewing Company’s Tiki Hut IPA.

“Tropical awesomeness powered by monster flavor/aroma additions of Citra and Mosaic.  Epic hop profile with a touch more specialty malt than a typical West Coast IPA.  That extra support allows the Citra & Mosaic profiles to shine extra bright…like diamonds made of lupulin and unicorn kisses.  7.5% alc/vol”

It’s very tasty and we both highly recommend.

"Holy FAQ" Episode 38

Holy FAQ! Now that we are on the other side of the Broadside Bash, we can focus on Edition 8.1.5.4.2.  In this 3.5 hour megasode, we discuss the big changes in the FAQ and how those changes impacted our armies for good or for evil.

What we are drinking! Andy got this for the second day of the Broadside Bash and it was refreshing a delicious so we decided to have it again and share it with you.  We drank the Lagunitas Sumpin’ Easy.  It’s a light IPA, almost a sessional, but with more ABV.  Highly, highly recommend for a hot summer day.  Easily one of our favorites.

"Delicious, Delicious Beer" Episode 37

We broadcast from Gamers Haven with our good friend and owner David Cutts, following his April Warhammer 40K RT at 3 Iron Brewing in Colton CA.  The venue was great, the beer was great, and the competition was great.  Ray played Hayden game 3 at the top table and Ray was our days champion.  Andy drank a lot and learned a lot.

"Im Drunk! Rays Drunk!" Episode 36

In this alcohol fueled episode we talk about the Broadside Bash specific rules and how you can adjust to the different tournaments that you may attend.  We were quite drunk when we recorded this.  The rest of the recording was not up to even our standards so we decided to cut this episode short.  Look for some shout out at the end of the show.

"Nuts on Your Chin Tau" Episode 35

What?!? More Tau talk?!? Welcome to side B of Tau Talk with Keith.  At this point we are quite drunk but it makes for a great show.  We get Keith’s opinion on the Top 3 Septs, Stratagems and Ray gets a geometry lesson.

We break up the Tau talk in the opening segment by talking with our good friend Hayden about some 40K struggles he has had and how he plans to turn it around for tournament season.  He does go on to beat me that day in an ITC mission using a chess clock with a score of 32-22.

"Big Daddy Pimp" Episode 31

Hobby Heroes.  With the aid of technology, we sit down with our good friend and Hobby hero Dave Cutts.  We talk about 40K, D&D, Shadespire and his gaming club Gamer’s Haven in Colton CA.  The gaming club, as opposed to a store, focuses more on providing a gaming experience and not just a retail experience.  If you are in San Bernardino region and are looking for a great 24 hour gaming experience, The Veteran Gamer Reenlisted highly recommends giving them a try.

“Broadcasting from Gamer’s Arsenal” Again Episode 30

We had not seen Alex in a while so we decided to swing by and join him for his monthly’s. We were joined by our friends Pretty Dick, Bubble Boy and James Carmona.  We recount our success, or lack thereof, at the Monthly 40K RTT at Gamers Arsenal, we discuss where chaos is in the META and we bad mouth Alex in his own shop.

Thanks to everyone who helped to support the 10th Mountain Division in the month of February.  It was a real enormous success.  Thanks to Bam and the boys from the Flying Monkeys Wargaming Podcast for all their help as well.  They sent a huge box of goodies to the troops overseas.
