So this episode we wanted to talk about how we prep for tournaments. Of course, we don’t go to many tournaments, so we recruited some friends. That wound up becoming a whole different conversation for most of the show. We discuss a bunch of upcoming tournaments and we go over the Adepticon paint score rubric because it seems like a pretty good example of a straightforward rubric with very little room for “interpretation.”

Anyway, here’s the episode, and thanks to Grant, Chris and Jeff for coming on and being a part of the show.


Also, don’t forget that next episode is the Barnette Brithday Bash, where we begin to cover Tamurkhan, which is just about the best present GW could have given to Christopher. So, if you want to give a shout-out for Christopher’s birthday, here’s your chance.


Hope you enjoy!

We all talk about our modeling, a bit of reading about Harry Dresden form Lizardmen Jeff, and David’s continuing journey through the Horus Heresy. We also get a cool insight into Grant’s time working at GW and his NOT wanting to read the Black Library books.

We then get into games. Unfortunately, only Grant and David had a game, both of them against Chris Yu (who isn’t here yet!) and his Badonkadonk list.
