Warheads: The Podcast (Episode 001)

Following on from such innovations as penicillin, democracy and armoured warfare, we’ve decided to make the world a better place by producing our very own Warheads podcast. It turned out to be relatively straightforward, stick four friends in a quiet corner of the pub and add one recording device.


I enclose an actual contents list but to summarise, we discuss Bolt Action, Flames of War, the peculiarities of Irish wargaming and bicker relentlessly. We’ve also noticed that the background noise tends to pick up whenever Floody speaks, as if the universe itself wishes to silence the opinions of our worst cheese-monger. Our only concession to our listener (hi, John) is to keep it under an hour in length.

Contents
00:00- Our presenters introduce themselves and our listener(s) are aurally assaulted by our theme song.

02:18- Operation Encore: an introduction to Irish tournaments, the Madagascar theory of meta-gaming.
06:48- List Discussions: God bless and help you, King Tigers.
12:45- Day 1 AAR: grace in defeat is a foreign concept.
25:06- Day 2 AAR: chasing your own tail and the perils of the Swiss system.
35:16- Hobby Shack Preview: how not to alienate new players and make friends.
39:54- General FoW Chatter: the dreaded comp, tournament missions, general squabbling.
47:10- Bolt Action Chatter: The pedigree of the game and the strange concept of “fun”.

You can have a listen here. I can only you enjoy it as much as we did.

On The Step Podcast 1.1: On the Tau

Hello to you all, it’s been far too long since I’ve had the time to post on this! I do however return bearing some most excellent news. Trget and myself have started a podcast, find it here and more information after the break.


It initally came up through the absolutely random conversations we have (as we live together) about every new codex that comes out. We’d sit down with a codex each and (usually me) exclaim ‘That’s OP!’ or ‘Ooooh shiny’. Most of it was fairly inane banter but we thought if we got our minds together we could so some interesting reviews. I’ve always been a big fan of the background/fluff and Trget has a formidable knowledge of the rules so we combine well.

I’ll be honest, this first one was done a little on the fly as we were unsure as to what we wanted to do with the podcast but inital reviews have been good and we’re refining the running order and segments.

If you’ve got any comments on the show we’d like to hear them, it’ll just make us better as we go forward!

We’re going to be monthly, covering 40k as that’s our main system personally. We may branch out as we play different games but it will stick to wargames and 40k for now.

A section I’m looking to add is a tournament round up- top three from the month before and the tournaments upcoming. I reckon I could get it done in 2 minutes if I turn on the fast-speak!

In this episode we discuss the new Tau codex, we talk about:

Major changes in the background and a few of our favourite characters
The models and overall aesthetic of the army
And a round up of all the new rules with a look through all the choices.

Thanks for listening!
