Episode 56 – Three Mini Topics and Those Special Orcs & Goblins

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & Games, The Game Preserve, Ursa’s Den, and  Battlefoam

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

Garagehammer voicemail and tournament info is brought to you by Lizardmen Jeff and the Circle City Circuit

Shout out sponsors: Mark Zielinski


Before show info, please allow me to once again beg for donations to my Extra-Life 24 hour gaming marathon to help Children’s Hospital of Chicago. You can donate from the home page of our website, or follow this link: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=29748


So on this episode we keep up with the newest releases and some Kickstarter goodness. Then we talk a bit about our plan for our narrative campaign. Pay attention because Chris and I need your help. Then we move on to the First Annual Chicago Civil War. This is a small three round tourney that is going to be held in October, pitting NW2 against those rotten Southsiders on IWFB! That leads to a brief discussion about playing games with open v. closed lists.

After that we continue our discussion about Warhammer special characters. This time we cover the Orcs & Goblins book and discuss whether they have any characters that are worth taking, or are even possibly…BROKEN! (spoiler: there aren’t an borken O&G characters.)

Also, as Chris Yu settles in to his co-host role, we are still making some changes to the show.  This will probably continue for the next couple of episodes. I just don’t have the time or energy to implement everything all at once, so we are tweaking the show slowly. We really hope you like the tweaks, changes, and the refocusing on garage gaming and hobby gaming and we welcome your feedback both on the forums and via email.
So enjoy!
