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 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 18: Interview With a … Tournament Organizer

What? Were you expecting vampires?

The time rapidly approaches for the Berks Spring Assault III and just in case you don’t already have all the details, we’ve brought the head honcho, Mike Biancone, on the show for a little sit down.  Ok, a long sit down, but it is packed full of great info covering everything you could possibly want to know about Spring Assault and probably even more than that.  Plus, Bill gives some clues as to what his “Super Secret” project is.  I hope it’s a sandwich because I’m friggen hungry!

*As a side note, we’re testing out a new method of recording the episodes and as such there are a few hiccups.  I feel the quality is better, however, there are times in the episode where one voice blocks out another.  I apologize for this.
