Episode 137 – Welcome Back to Warhammer

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesMantic GamesMierce Miniatures, The TC Warroom and Battlefoam

The Garagehammer Toolbox is brought to you by Chaos Orc’s Superstore

So on this episode I’m joined by friends Luke and Tax Fritz. They have come back to Warhammer after leaving fantasy in 2011. Luke has been building and playing Khorne Bloodbound since the beginning of the Age of Sigmar. Taz had her first game of AoS this evening playing with some of my Wood Elves.

We start with some voicemail and a few friendly emails, then I talk about what’s going on with the show and why I’ve pretty much dropped Garagegamer, at least for now. Then I read the email that kinda prompted this whole discussion of the show.

After that nonsense, we hit the usual segments: news and rumors and the toolbox. Boy am I excited about the current and upcoming Fyreslayers. After that it’s all about the newest players in my local group, Taz and Luke, and what they are learning about this new edition of Warhammer. It’s a fun conversation full of that “new game” discovery and I hope you enjoy listening to the conversation as much as we enjoyed having it.

Enjoy!

Episode 136 – GW 2015 Year in Review

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesMantic GamesMierce Miniatures, The TC Warroom and Battlefoam

The Garagehammer Toolbox is brought to you by Chaos Orc’s Superstore

So here I am with friend of the show Cristian Bayer discussing the last 12 months of the hobby with GW.

We start with voicemail and emails! This makes me so happy because we haven’t been getting that many lately.

Next we move to news and rumors…DUARDIN! So of course we talk about this for too long. It’s dwarfs. What do you want form me? Then we follow it up wit the toolbox where we cover the basics and I realize how long we’ve been talking so we just move it along to the main part of the show. I don’t know why these first three sections seem to take an hour for the last few episodes…I guess a lot of new releases coupled with me actually hobbying and playing makes for a bit more to talk about.

The rest of the show breaks down into the following: First we cover the last year’s releases and what we thought of them. Cristian actually saves the day and points out a few releases I missed, but that’s mostly because they were kinda forgettable…so maybe that wasn’t really saving the day? Who knows. I’m just glad He was on the ball because I obviously wasn’t. Next we do our traditional best and worst lists. We talk “bottom three” first, and try to include what we’d do to make them better, but we kinda forgot to do that then went back and did it…and it might have seemed like lip service, but it really wasn’t. I’m just a dope and was starting to clock watch and then forgot. Now, disclaimer, when we get to my #1 on the worst list that goes kinda long. It’s not hate though. I’m just really passionate that this particular worst by no means needed to be a worst and shouldn’t have been and I needed to talk about it. Finally we cover our top three and then wrap up the show.

Thanks again to Cristian for coming on. It’s always fun to have him on as he’s easy going and fun to talk to.

Enjoy!

Episode 135 – Battletome Seraphon

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesMantic GamesMierce Miniatures, The TC Warroom and Battlefoam

On this episode I’m joined by my dear friend Roder of Skull Bros Awesome fame. We start off with an interesting email, then we get into talking about Archaon and his Varangurad in news and rumors. Then in the toolbox we talk about a whole lot of stuff and I think it’s all entertaining so you should too. If you don’t then you obviously lack my wonderful sense of taste…or something like that.

Then it’s on the review of the Battletome Seraphon! I don’t want to spoil the review for you here so let me just say this…we made a promise before recording that we would be honest, and we were. You get to hear what we really think about the book without any editing, censoring, or…anything. Raw review here.

Enjoy!

Episode 134 – The Quest For Ghal Maraz

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesMantic GamesMierce Miniatures, The TC Warroom and Battlefoam

The Garagehammer Toolbox is brought to you by Chaos Orc’s Superstore

On this episode I’m joined by Handsome Point Boy Johnny Hastings from the Point Hammered podcast.  He and I cover “The Quest for Ghal Maraz,” the Games Workshop campaign book and the Black Library companion novel. The episode is a little disjointed, because the book tells two stories at once, and we follow the campaign book as that’s the one most people own.

We cover the stories of Vandus Hammerhand and his search for Ghal Maraz and Gardus’s journey through the realm of Nurgle, the into the realm of Ghyran to find Alarielle and reaffirm Sigmar’s alliance with the Queen of the Jade Kingdom.

Enjoy!

First off, let me apologize for the levels. They aren’t up to my normal standards. They aren’t bad…but after I finished I realized it wasn’t to the usual show standards. Anyway…Steve Herner is back and the two of us talk about the Khorne Bloodbound Battletome. A lot. If you are interested in the new direction the forces of Chaos are taking, then this book may interest you. We spend a lot of time on it, maybe more than it deserves, maybe not. All I know is we had fun with it and I hope you do to.

Enjoy!

Episode 132 – Mailbag and Holy Wars

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesMantic GamesMierce Miniatures, The TC Warroom and Battlefoam

The Garagehammer Toolbox is brought to you by Chaos Orc’s Superstore

So in this episode I did the first ever listener mailbag with guest host Steve Herner of the Holy Hammers Wargaming Club and the TO of the Holy Wars GT. Many of you know him from Twitter or from the Midwest tournament scene. He’s always up for best painted and his “Rats in Hats” Skaven army is famous (or, if it’s Skaven is that infamous?) for it’s theme, painting, and having every model in the army be rather heavily converted.

This episode is a bit long, but it’s all Warhammer (well, and a few other things in the Toolbox). Steve and I talk about the hobby, what’s coming up and what we hope is coming up. We talk about what we are doing and what we are planning. We go through the listener mailbag and then we go in depth with Steve about his tournament and why this year will be even better BECAUSE of Aos.

Enjoy!

So this episode is mostly live from Tabletop Wargaming Day at Unique Gifts and Games. We talk to Ken the co-owner of UGG. Alex Gonzalez comes on to talk AoS and Adepticon. Grant Fetter also comes on to talk AoS (and some Infinity and Personal Flashpaper). Finally Luke Fritz is on talking X-Wing and Armada! It was lots of fun recording and playing and I think that comes through in the recording.

Enjoy!

Episode 130 – Topic Schmopic

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesMantic GamesMierce Miniatures, The TC Warroom and Battlefoam

The Garagehammer Toolbox is brought to you by Chaos Orc’s Superstore

For most of this episode I am joined again by my friend Christian Bayer, and we catch up on just about everything. We talk about what’s coming out form GW, we talk toolbox, and we talk about the different things we are doing in our hobby other than painting our models. I haven’t just sat down and talked hobby with Christian in a while, and so just about everything we mention goes into some other thing. (News and Rumors goes into how beautiful the Tau stuff is only because I popped onto the site to get a terrain piece’s name and saw the cool home page graphics…seriously. We just go where the conversation takes us!)

In the middle of all that Chris Yu comes back on the show to talk about the Infinity tournament he held last weekend at his home! IT was so awesome! Even then, with questions in hand, the topic just drifts to the cool things from that weekend that kept popping into our heads. So yeah, the show is all over the place, but it’s almost all hobby wargaming talk so I hope you love it!

Here are the links I got from Christian for all the stuff he was talking about:
