Highlights: The boys are back after over a month off, and they open up the show with what they have been doing in their long absence, which included a pretty good rant section. Then, in the ‘News and Rumors’, the boys talked about a new Kickstarter, the latest from the Black Library, and the Dark Angels release! Next, Reese from Frontline Gaming joins the cast for the Rapid Fire segment, where they answer questions live from their forum fans. After that was ‘Tactica’ segment of the show, and this week the guys talked about a recent tournament where Kyle and Rik teamed up. They talked about their lists and their dismal performance at the event. Then, Rik had another Black Library Corner where he discussed the book ‘Betrayer’ by ADB! Kyle then kicked in with a Hobby Hot Spot where they discussed a replacement for the ‘Tenax 7R Space Age Plastic Welder’ they featured in a previous Hobby Hot Spot. They closed out the show with ‘In The Crosshairs’ where they took a good look at the Dark Angels Codex. They talked about their first thoughts on the codex, the units that jumped out to them as being impact units, and went on a tangent about 6th Edition in general. They also discussed their final thought on this codex and its place among the top tier.
Highlights: This week the boys opened up their show with ‘This Week in Gaming’ where they talked about the games they have been playing lately. This including a conversation about the triple Helldrake list Pat ran and Daemon Bomb lists. Next, in ‘Pat’s Corner’, Pat had an interview with Matt Weeks from Adepticon and they discuss their event and some of what they are planning for it. Pat the talked to Chandler from ‘Feasts of Blades’ and they discussed what they are hoping to do at this year’s event. Next up, the guys get back to their List Building segment and this week the build a Death Company/Storm Raven list. In the community segment we heard from a lot of other podcasts, like Hitting on 3s, Frontline Gaming, the Heroic 28s, Screaming Heretics, and much more! The boys closed out their show once again by answering questions from their Facebook page.
Opinion: I really liked this week’s show if for only one reason; one of my favorite segments was back! I absolutely loved it when the guys would build lists live, and you could hear what they were thinking when they added components to that list. I have already added my list to the roll, get them in early or else you might have a long wait to have your list built. Also, hearing from Matt and Chandler, two big time TOs was also entertaining. Overall, another great show from the 11thCompany!
Opinion: This week’s show was a great example of why I love their new format, starting off with a great opening monolog about Forgeworld. I share a lot of the same views as the guys, while Forgeworld might not break a game or an event, I do feel it is greatly skewed in an Imperial direction. And the full review of Codex Space Wolves was outstanding, and has made me want to dust them off.
Opinion: I absolutely love when the guys do one of these shows, and I believe this is the third one they have done. All too often one forgets what had come to pass in the previous year. I know a lot of people believe that this was a pretty light year for 40K, with only one codex and a new edition, but looking back it really was pretty eventful. A new edition, new paint line, new White Dwarf format. GW was pretty busy. This is a good one to sit back and reflect on. Nice job guys!
Highlights: This week the gang bids a farewell to Commissar Random as he is going on assignment to Japan until April. They open up with the news where they talked quite a bit about the Dark Angels release. They then move on to what they have been up to lately in the hobby and gaming. Next, Jon discussed his Techno Barbarians list, where he allies in Orks counts as Adeptus Mechanicus with his IG, and some of the models and bits he used for his Ad Mech. Then, in the Commissar Random’s Uplifting Primer, the guys discuss their recent 3 game campaign briefly. They also discussed playing your opponent’s army and the advantage to swapping armies with your friends for a game.
Opinion: Two things right off the bat: First, sorry I missed you guys last week, stupid RSS feed. Second, Jon you will be missed my friend. I am probably one a few people who can remember the show before Jon joined the cast. And I can tell you for me, his addition added quite a bit to the show. While I realize his departure is only temporary, the next couple of months will be hard with him behind the mic. Farewell, Jon, and hurry back! Great final show as well.
