    Episode 29 - Cryosleep

    6 months after the last episode, we get back together to talk about what they've been up to, their favorite gaming memories over the past 6 months, what they're looking forward to in the future, and what the show will look like for the foreseeable future.
    In short, with the pandemic and life/work changes, recordings will continue to be irregular, BUT, we're fairly regularly hanging out in our Discord channel (link below), sharing hobby progress, cracking jokes, & chatting about games.

Perfect podcast for your ride to work

The guys on the podcast have fun with the topics they talk about which makes my drive into work a lot less stressful.

Great content for anything GW

These guys do a great job on their podcast. They cover several GW games and are active in the community. They also understand how difficult it is participating in such a time consuming hobby when you have more important responsibilities (e.g, work, family, marriage, etc.). All in all, a good
Listen.

Great show from good people

This is an interesting and entertaining show for anyone who loves miniatures gaming and painting in general and especially for those who love Games Workshop products. They work out the minor volume quirks after the first episode and the friendship between the 4 hosts fuels the good natured ribbing between them that makes the show fun to listen to. Plus their wide range of experience with many games and the painting/modeling aspects of the hobby is both in informative and inspiring for whatever part of the hobby you enjoy.

I had the pleasure of playing against Jerod and Tres in a doubles game at Nova Open this year. While they had an army that could have easily crushed what my game partner and I had brought to the table, they played in a fun but still competitive spirit fitting the nature of the narrative game we played. It was lots of fun and the kind of game that makes all the hours put into the hobby worthwhile. I try not to let that positive experience color my opinion of the show. But from my point of view in 30 years of gaming, opponents who are fun, fair, and sportsmanlike help renew your love of the hobby, which also makes them good to listen to on a show about the love games and the Nova Open gaming experience.
