The Veteran Gamer Reenlisted

Drinkn' Beer, Rolln' Dice & Talkn' S#!t

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

"You are a Cheater" Episode 61

Dicehammer Part 2. We finish up our recap of this event.  Ray and Pretty Dick discuss tactics, strategies and how they beat a cheater. And we call him out by name. They discuss the ways this guy cheats and how they combat it.  Andy also pretends he knows some shit about Australia.

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.

"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.

"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.”

"Touchn' Pee Pee's Turn One" Episode 51

In this episode we discuss shooting armies vs assault armies and which is better.  We discuss tactics for both sides and get way deep into the subject.  We also give feedback to a listener question on MSU and we take your phone calls on cheaters.

What are we drinking?  Andy picked up a six pack of the GOLDEN ROAD HEFEWEIZEN.

“Golden Road Hefeweizen is a Bavarian-style wheat beer. It has hints of banana and clove on the nose and palate from the German yeast, a medium body, and a smooth, crisp finish that will leave you thinking about lounging in a sun soaked beer garden. Prost!” Available: Year Round Style: Bavarian-Style Hefeweizen ABV: 5% IBU: 13 Malts: Malted Wheat, Dextrin, Crystal Light, 2-Row Hops: Bravo

"ATC Recap" Episode 50

ATC recap.  Games and shenanigans.  Thanks for all the listeners who came up to talk to Ray.  Your support helps keeps us motivated to keep doing what we are doing.

What are we drinking?  Heidi bullied Andy into trying a German import.  A “bier from her homeland.”  We drink the Schofferhofer (Chauffeur + ah + Hoff + ah!) Grapefruit Hefeweizen.  Its closer to juice than beer at only 2.5% ABV.  Its tasty for sure but not sure if its beer.

"That's how you prepare for the ATC" Episode 49

For two weeks now, we managed to keep Ray on the show. It’s a fucking miracle. In this episode we get caught up on some Maximum Effort and our After-Action Reviews.  Ray tests out his ATC list on Andy and we discuss some tactics that were crucial in our games.  Andy and Ray also discuss ways they have been preparing for the big events they are attending this month.  Ray is headed off to the American Team Championship (ATC) and Andy is headed off to the Bay Area Open (BAO). You can see Ray's ATC list posted at the bottom of the show notes.

What are we drinking? Andy made a safe selection this week and went with the Stone Brewing Tangerine Express IPA.

“This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.”

“Because he is a Librarian not a ‘Libarian’” Episode 48

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA! Ray returns to the show after cheating on us with another show.  He recaps the Flying Monkeys Con for us. If you have not done so yet, check out our Midwest sisters from another mister the Flying Monkeys Wargaming Podcast.

We are having another patron and now Itunes Review contest.  At the end of July we will hold a raffle.  For every dollar that is being pledged per month you will get an entry.  So if you are like Miguel Jimenez from the Salt Shakers Pagecast and are donating $5 per month, you will get 5 entries. If you are like Francisco and are donating $20 per month, you will get 20 entries.  I am also opening this up to Itunes reviews.  Anyone who has given us an Itunes review will also get an additional entry.  Up for grabs is one of our VGRpodcast Tshirts.  You can check them out at https://teespring.com/stores/vgrpodcast

What are we drinking?  We got some beer recommendations from friend of the show Kris Fus so we tried the North Coast Brewing Company Brother Thelonious.

“Like a Belgian "Dark Strong Ale," this beer is rich and robust with an ABV of 9.4%. The package features a label picturing the Jazz master himself, and comes in either a 375 or 750 ml bottle with a traditional cork and wire finish.”

"I done fucked up" Episode 47

Sometimes everything doesn’t go as planned.  Getting a podcast out weekly is often a big task and this week we had some issues.  The audio quality in today’s show is obviously not up to par and I promise to fix it for the next episode.  I talk to my buddy Bam Bam from the Flying Monkeys and we talk about the Con, Space Wolves and some new meta. Hopefully you can listen past the audio difficulties and enjoy the content.

What we are drinking.  We got some beer recommendations from friend of the show Kris Fus so we tried the Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy.

“Our own unique take on Franz Kugler’s original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is our traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer.

In 2012, Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival® in the Fruit Wheat Beer category. Pairs with: BBQ chicken, fruit salads, watermelon and freshly caught, grilled fish.”

“One Giant Orgasmic Event” Episode 46

Danger Zone! Andy invades the league night at At Ease Games in Miramar, California.  Ray is currently on his way to the Flying Monkey Con in Wichita, Kansas so he couldn’t join us this week.  Friend of the show Keith Berry runs a highly successful league and he tells us how he makes it happen. Another friend of the show Paul hops on a mic and tells us about beating Keith, Hayden tries to tell us how he lost to Vito, and James Carmona licks his wounds after getting beat down by Andy.

What we are drinking?  Attached to At Ease Games is At Ease Barrel Harbor.  The tabletop gaming area is behind a bar.  They have a host of great beers on tap, and it was by one get one half off night so Andy was in hog heaven. You can check out their beer selection at https://barrelharborbrewing.com/
