"Holy FAQ 2" Episode 60

Holy FAQ! Get our first impressions of the new FAQ and what we think it means for the META and impacts to our armies.

Big thanks to all of our patrons. Because of your support we were able to pick up these sweet new microphones that will improve the sound quality of the show.

"Retarded and Mean" Episode 59

We are joined by Pretty Dick for some Dicehammer Recap.  We split this recording into 2 episodes because there was that much content.  We get through discussing the event, we talk about a cheater, and we get to Pretty Dick’s day one at the event.  We will have the rest of the recap in either next weeks or the week after’s episode depending on the FAQ launch.

Australia has taken over the UK as the number 2 country for downloads of our show.  To show our appreciation we discuss our cousins from down under and drink a little beer from their county.  We drank the Coopers Brewery Sparkling Ale and the Pale Ale.  Although there were some other brands I wanted to try after doing my research this was the only brand other than Fosters I could get on short notice.

If you don’t have time for Maximum Effort but still want your models to look their best, check out the Valkyrie Paint Studio.  Tyler and Chris have painted almost all of Ray’s models and we highly recommend them both.

"Flash Back" Episode 58

Flash Back Episode.  We first revisit content from our first episode and it sounds like content that could be from today.  Following up on a listener question on how he could get better in the competitive environment, we come back to a segment from Episode 13 where we help Francisco with a similar issue.  Finally, we come back to some hobby progress with Tyler Amoy from the Valkyrie Paint studio. 

We have some new listeners and if you have not gone back, I encourage you to do so.  Some of the content may be a little dated but the content and beer drinking never is.

We are eagerly awaiting the FAQ and we have a tournament recap we will get to in the next few weeks episodes so stay tuned for those.

"I'm terrible at this game" Episode 57

Hey, I didn’t fuck it up!  Ray actually joins me in this episode.

In the Data Slate we talk a little FAQ again and get Ray’s thoughts on the matter.  We also take some listener comments and discuss those as well.  We talk about Ray’s decision to join Team Zero Comp and we update on the Darkside Wargaming Club.  Andy jumps on his salty soap box and complains about the AoS release and a new GW store in our region.

In the After-Action Review Ray talks about a practice game he had with Pretty Dick in preparation for Dicehammer and Andy updates his Maximum Effort with his GSC. 

If you don’t have time for Maximum Effort but still want your models to look their best, check out the Valkyrie Paint Studio.  Tyler and Chris have painted almost all of Ray’s models and we highly recommend them both.

Finally, in the Conclusion we hear some listener voicemail.

"Its not the same without Ray" Episode 56

Technology giveth and technology taketh away.  The original recording was lost to the warp due to a corrupted SD card so Andy created a show out of nothing.  In this episode Rays joins Team Zero Comp and Andy takes over as Captain of Darkside Wargamers and Altered State Wargaming.  Andy discusses what it like to form a new gaming team and the rules he has created to keep the team active. Andy also talks post Nova Meta and changes he and Ray expect and want to see in the FAQ coming later this month.  Andy also does some After Action review and Maximum Effort. 

Big winners of out T Shirt Contest.  Brain Spalliero and Talos_3D each one shirts in the contest.  Hit us up and send us an address and we will have shirts coming your way.

What are we drinking? Tennessee Andy helped us find some beers again this week. Ray was drinking the Serpent Bite from Orpheus Brewing.

“Just as the Serpent Bite and loss of Eurydice was the catalyst for Orpheus’s journey, our love for hops and sour beers was the catalyst for Orpheus Brewing. Serpent Bite is a dry-hopped, sour saison, with a tart bite, and notes of orange and tropical fruit.” Composition Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Pekko Grain: two row barley, white wheat Fermentation: House Lactobacillus Mother, Saison yeast ABV: 6%

Andy was drinking the Forty-Four from Back Abbey Brewing.

“A robust porter liberally infused with an exclusive blend of Hawaiian and Kenyan coffee beans from our friends at Frothy Monkey. The cold-brewed coffee enhances the natural roast aroma, and pulls deep notes of chocolate and caramel. Pairs well with cozy movie nights; smoked or barbecued meats and cheesecake. 4.8% ABV 25 IBUs”

"You're Being a Girl" Episode 54

In this episode, Ray returns from baby watch 2018 to join the podcast.  Congrats to Ray and the Pale Elf on their new baby.  Andy does a brief recap of the Events of Hammer of Wrath at Gamer Empire in Pasadena.  Ray and Andy Also discuss the new ITC PACK.  Let us know your initial thoughts about the new pack on our Facebook page.

What were we drinking.  “Tennessee Andy” turned us onto the Boulevard Brewing BERLINER WEISSE GERMAN-STYLE SOUR ALE.

“Few beer styles can match the delicate, sparkling character of the classic Berliner Weisse, with its light body and tart palate. It’s said that Napoleon’s troops referred to it as “The Champagne of the North,” high praise for beer, coming from Frenchmen. With Berliner Weisse, we pay tribute to the style, while giving it a distinctively American twist. Bright and thirst-quenching, the beer is enlivened by soft lactic notes.”

"He doesn't know this is happening" Episode 53

Surprise!  Our buddy “Pretty Dick” offered to fill in for Ray this week while his girl gave birth to their second child so we could have a show this week.  Andy almost said no but he bribed him with beer.

DOMINIC JOAQUIN AHUMADA was born 8/8/18 at 1034.  Congratulations to Ray and Heidi. 

In this episode we discuss our tournament lists and what we are seeing in the META.  We then get sent some lists and Andy does his best armature list doctoring. Andy gets a bunch of stuff wrong in this episode so feel free to play the Andy gets shit wrong drinking game.

What we are drinking? We start with the Mission Brewery IPA.

“The IPA is the embodiment of San Diego craft beer. Our award-winning interpretation of the popular style features a modern American hop profile. This beer is bright and light bodied, with notes of pine and citrus. A balanced, drinkable addition to the wide world of IPAs. Alcohol by Volume 6.8% Bitterness 66 IBUs”

Pretty Dick then moves onto the Garage Brewing Belgian Style Triple.

“Known to locals as The Tow Truck, this beer has a fruit, floral aroma and the delicious flavor of peaches, pears and apples that will hook you in. Flavor: Peaches, Pears, Apple. Aroma: Fruity, Flora. Balance: Light Malt, Fruity Belgian Flavors”

Andy then opens up a Last Name Brewing Runway IPA.

“Until Runway IPA, we’d been focusing on perfecting our lagers. Luckily for you thirsty beer enthusiasts, our first flight into the world of ales is a delicious one. The base is a solid malt flavor; the tropical/citrus flavors and aromas are courtesy of Summit, Cascade and Galaxy hops. To turn up the delicious intensity, get yourself some fried chicken or chips and salsa. buckle your seat belt, put your tray tables up and get ready for takeoff! Runway IPA™ is a trademark of LAST NAME Brewing.”
