Episode 64 – A Look Back at GW 2012

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & GamesThe Game PreserveUrsa’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 sponsor: Kenneth Lull (Ineptus Astartes)


So rather than wrap up the year in general, we decided to look at the list of all the product GW put out in the last 12 months. We also talk about what three things GW needs to work on, as well as the three things they definitely hit home runs with. Greg Dann, our European Correspondent, joins us for the entire episode in this look back at 2012.


Ok, I’m just putting this out there…I was a bit of a lazy editor this episode. We were talking to Greg and we don’t get to talk to him as often as we’d like, so we were up recording for quite a while. I cleaned and tightened the show, but we were having a lot of fun discussing everything that came up and I hope the fun we were having comes through. I just didn’t really want to go back and hack out 15-20 minutes more when I already cut a whole mini topic to get it down to 3:15. I hope you guys don’t mind that I left this one long.


Hope you enjoy!
