Podcast 121 – Menoth Megasode!

Yet again, Nick and I sat down for 4 hours to discuss a Faction… this time we dragged Darrell and his Menoth loving butt into the ‘cast as well!

Got four hours to listen to a sermon all about the God of Man? I mean, since the alternative is being burned to a crisp, I’d vote “Yes”, but it is your choice after all…

The Path to Mediocrity: It’s All in the Numbers



     Well, it’s been a long time dear readers.  Suffice to say that life with two small children and a wife that keeps breaking parts of her body makes life pretty busy.  However, I’m back as mediocre as ever and ready to thrill you with another resounding tale.  This time I’d like to go over my results of the past year, what I’ve learned (I think) and how I plan to use what I’ve learned (supposedly) to improve my play in the coming year.

Tournament Video – Store Wars 2015 – Forbes Hobbies #1

Last weekend Marc, Kassem and I ventured out to Forbes Hobbies in Cambridge, Ontario for the latest event in the 2015 Store Wars circuit.


We will probably talk about our results briefly on the next episode of Combo Smite but suffice it to say it did not go well for my Blighted forces.

(Marc: Also, I think Darrell is being a little hard on himself… I would say “Rumble NEAR the Bottom of the Barrell” at worst… and who is Sasha Grey?)

The Journey of a Thousand Leagues Begins with Beginner Journeyman Leagues

Are you awed by that title? I’m so proud of it that I may actually burst.
Today I ran a Demo Day at “Just by Chance Games” in Waterloo. Alicia, who owns/works at the store, helped me get set up, and I showed up with the above models, ready to teach! Simultaneously, we also started a Journeyman League for all the eager players who were ready to dip their toes into WarMachine!

Podcast 043 – Mercs Vs. Menoth – Fiona Vs. Kreoss3: The Truncated Charge of the Exemplar Brigade

You guys are probably getting sick of hearing about my games all the time but once again this week I am matched up against Darrell and his Menoth.
(Marc: This is partially my fault, and partially Gaven’s fault… I had to stay home and take care of a sick girlfriend, and Gaven’s wife just autogenerated his first child, a daughter… so we had to go with our fall-back game, Nick and Darrell. Sorry!
Also, turns out Nick can’t spell “Kreoss”. I apologize for all the typos in the report… I corrected it in the Title, but the rest of it is Nick’s responsibility!)
