The Opy Show LogoGreetings all!  Sorry for the short delay but we finally have our last episode of the year!  As 2013 comes to a close we get inundated with news galore, with even more to come in our first episode of 2014.  But before we look to the future let us focus on the here and now, the Opy Show!  Laden with heavy amounts of Opy we bring you our review (and by our, I mean … Opy’s) of Codex Inquisition and to close out the show with even more Opy, he regales us with tales of the 11th Company GT.  Plus, of course, don’t forget our famous Battle Report!  In this episode we have a truly lore inspired battle between the Dark Angels and the hated Chaos Space Marines.  Enjoy!

Episode 38: Killadelphia

Killadelphia Logo by AndyAnd so we’re back … from outer space … we just walked in and found you there with that sad look upon your face … you should have changed that stupid loc- … ah-hem!!  Sorry.  Good news everyone!  We’re not dead and we’ve got an episode to prove it.  It’s a bit of a lengthy one to boot and also keep in mind that it was actually, technically recorded almost two months ago … so no news again and dates and times may sound a bit … odd.  But anyway, we’ve finally got our coverage of the Killadelphia Open tournament hosted by the Stomping Grounds back in June.  It’s been so long it’ll be like new again!  Also, our long overdue Eldar Codex review, just in time for … Space Marines, cough, but we’ll get to that later.  And of course we also have our famous Battle Report.  I’m working hard on getting back on a schedule here but at the very least it shouldn’t be nearly as long of a wait for episode 39.  Apologies and all that.  Cheers and enjoy!

Oh and I almost forgot, I’m using some new music for the Battle Report this episode to rejuvenate the sound for season 3.  More of that to come too!

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 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 22: 6th Edition Cometh

As Opy says, “5th Edition, we hardly knew ye … actually we knew ye quite well,” and aside from the ye’s, that’s the truth.  But, out with the old and in with the 6th Edition!  So begins our shift from rumors to facts and all the joy and pain and suffering that comes with learning everything you know all over again … huzzah!?  Before we drop 5th like a bad habit though, we give it a fond farewell, cover one last 5th Edition tournament hosted by Stomping Grounds and of course, the epic conclusion to our three part Battle Report miniseries.  Get some!

What a day, what a day.  Saturday, that is, April the 21st of twenty twelve.  Berks Spring Assault 3 day.  That’s right of course we’re back to talk about all the details revolving around this yearly event that holds a special place in Turn 8’s collective heart.  Opy, Andy and Mike are here to break the day down (with my help of course), the good, the bad and the … rainbows.  And as if that wasn’t enough, Bill finally reveals all the details on the “super secret” project he’s been working on.

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.
