Episode 36: Aftermath

Episode 36 Title ImageWell it took a bit longer than I’d hoped but it’s finally here, our coverage of the Berks Spring Assault 4 tournament held on April 13th!  But wait, there’s more!  We also have our round up detailing some info about our recently revealed Super Secret Project.  Plus, of course our (slightly old) news and rumors section (sorry for the delay) and this episodes very special, Berks flavored Battle Report, featuring Bill’s Blue Bloods (A.K.A Blood Angels).  And as content packed as all that is, we’re not done yet.  In this episode we have our first interview with Matt Cerino from Stomping Grounds Games & Hobbies!  He joins us to talk about the upcoming Killadelphia GT in June.  So much to talk about it just took a little longer to release and yet still only landed as our 6th longest episode ever.  Enjoy!

Episode 35: Fish Sticks

Fish Sticks Episode ImageBOOM!  Just like that we’ve got another episode for your enjoyment.  The last podcast before BSA4 (Berks Spring Assault 4) and we snuck it in just in time.  As such this particular episode is a bit shorter but since the last episode only aired a week ago and it was rather on the longer side I feel that it works out well.  The meat of this show is of course, fish!  The Tau are out now (though still pending as of recording) and we cover a lot of what we think about the new models in This Random Time Period In 40k.  We also have a “last hurrah” Battle Report with old Codex Tau and as a special bonus, it’s also a Berks test game for our Space Wolves player.  Enjoy!

Episode 34: StormRaisins

Tasty StormRaisins!Why StormRaisins?  You’ll have to listen to the end to find out! (or skip ahead I guess … but don’t do that)  Anyway, a bit long with this episode again but it’s packed full of goodies, like … DAEMONS!!!!  Or rather a Chaos Daemons codex review by our very own Dave.  Also, later in the episode we interview Mike Biancone from the Berks Gaming Club about the upcoming BSA4!  (that’s Berks Spring Assault 4 for those not “in the know”)  We get all the details that you probably should already know by now but … um … interview!  Plus our news and rumors section as well as a BSA4 playtest Battle Report, enjoy!

Episode 33: The Case of the Missing Interview

Spy Magnifying GlassWhat can I say?  When it rains, it pours.  Stupid saying really but nevertheless I am forced to apologize once again, partially due to the minor lateness of this episode (though that is closer to normal) and mostly due to the lack of an interview with Mike Biancone.  You see, when recording this episode we had an interview scheduled with Steel Thunder himself with regards to the upcoming Berks Spring Assault 4.  Life, mostly being work, stepped in the way, however, and Mike couldn’t make it so we’ll have to postpone that bit of content for Episode 34!  In the meantime, enjoy our discussion of the news, the latest campaign the guys are involved in (hosted by our friends at the Stomping Grounds) and of course our Battle Report!

Episode 31: Rise of the Dark Angels

Rise of the Dark Angels PosterHappy belated New Years everyone!  And happy belated episode as well but hopefully this episode should be worth the wait.  We’ve got some news, we talk about the Dark Angels and some rumors but I do have to mention that due to the late airing of this episode (entirely my fault by the way) some of the content is already a bit out of date.  Just keep in mind while listening that we recorded this before Dark Angels had officially arrived and all will be right with the world.  Additionally in this episode we close out the Campaign Trail as Opy, Andy and Dave participated in the epic battle to end all.  Details inside!  We also have another Q&A session so please enjoy!

Episode 30: Chrismachanukwanzaakahs

From Tanksgiving to the “Holidays”, Happy Holidays everyone!  In this episode we’re bringing you the gift of … tournament reports!  Yay!  It’s our coverage of the recently past Berks Winter Blast tournament held by the Berks Gaming Club.  All the members of the podcast, excluding yours truly were in attendance and a good time was had by all, but don’t take my word for it, listen to the episode!  Breaking news, of sorts, we’ve got info on the Dark Angels, check out the rumors section of ‘This Random Time Period’.  We’re also giving you a small preview of the Crusade of Fire campaign book (which we’ve somewhat inexplicably included in the news segment of the show).  More details on that will come when we’ve had a chance to actually play through it.  And once again we’ve got another Q&A coming from our Facebook page, keep it up guys!

Episode 29: Tanksgiving

Happy Tanksgiving everyone!  What do you mean there’s no such thing?  Just look at the pictures!  It looks like that table is being invaded by croissants, terrifying.  Anyway, more on that in the show as well as the exciting conclusion of Opy and Dave’s second half of the Chaos Space Marine codex review.  In this episode Opy takes us through the Chaos units.  We also cover the news and bring you another Chaos themed Battle Report, this time between Opy’s Dark Mechanicus army and Andy’s Dark Eldar(icus).  Epic Turn 8 battle, fight!  Additionally, for the first time in Turn 8 history, we finally have a Q&A section, huzzah!  One of our listeners and Facebook followers had a question for the crew so we took the time during this episode to answer it in the best way we can.  Hope it helps!

Episode 28: Sandy, Harbinger of Chaos

After one major and then one minor delay, we finally bring you our Chaos Space Marines codex review!!  Well, part one of it anyway, there’s a lot to cover after all.  In this episode Opy takes us through the Chaos specific Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers, and the Armory.  We also cover quite a bit of news and bring you another Chaos related rule.  Who doesn’t love a good challenge?  Next episode we’ll conclude the codex review as we cover the units.  I would also like to apologize for the lateness of this particular show.  As some of you know we delayed our recording due to hurricane Sandy which, if you don’t know for some reason, recently ravaged the east coast of the U.S., particularly New Jersey.  Most of us here lost power for at least a bit (or a lot more) but were otherwise OK, our trees however …   In addition to that delay, work and other personal things on my end delayed the debut of this episode from Friday till now, but anyway, we’re back with more quality podcast programing for your ear holes, enjoy!

Episode 27: Chaos Is Pretty

Breathe it in, that new codex smell!  It’s finally here, the hardbound, full-color … $50 … new Chaos Space Marine codex!  Check inside this episode for our preview of what’s new for CSM’s.  Of course we can’t tell you everything good or bad about the new codex right off the bat since as of this episode’s recording it had only been out for two days, however, there’s still a lot of good info to be had including our resident Chaos vet, Opy’s, initial impressions.  We’ve also flavored our Round-up and Rules of Engagement with sprinklings of Chaos-y goodness
