Chris and I discuss a LOT of hobby stuff in The Toolbox before talking a bit about the “hobby tournament” Invasion Kenosha. We talk about the scenarios and how they affected list builds and how well the meshed with the other special list allowances in the rules pack. After that I talk about my experience at Invasion Kenosha V. (spoiler: it was AWESOME)

After that, Chris and I discuss hobby v competitive gamers. We got some email stating that the show isn’t for the casual garage gamer anymore because we aren’t really garage gamers anymore. So we discuss that and talk about why / if those things need be exclusive and whether we or the show have changed that much and why. It’s a bit of an odd segment because it’s a bit more personal than we originally intended but, after listening to it (and a liberal bit of editing) I think it’s a pretty good segment that talks about not only how hobby and competitive gaming don’t need to be exclusive, but how being a part of the larger Warhammer community can actually help make you a better hobby gamer!

Finally, here’s the link to the High Elf Phoenix Conversion that we talk about in the beginning of the episode.

Anyway, enjoy!
