News

  • Get your Con Badges for the LVO! We’re going to email everyone who still doesn’t have their badge, and I will call too, but that is a pain so please buy your con badge ASAP if you have not done so already. You can not come into the hall if you do not have a Con Badge!
  • LVO Fantasy, 40K and Warmahordes main events are sold out! Malifaux has 3 tickets left! Non-main events still have room, but we are approaching maximum capacity! Fantasy lists are due to the TO for review. 40K lists are not turned in! We work on the honor system.
  • Big Shout Out to Greenman Designs! They’re coming in as a huge sponsor for the LVO so you all will be benefiting from their generosity! Check out their site, they make awesome gaming accessories! A lot of the awesome stuff we’ve given away at previous events has come from Greenman, and Reece uses his wound counters and turn counter all the time.

  • New release from Bushido is pretty awesome!

  • Forgeworld Tau R’Varna gets nerfed! Nice, that was needed. Invul goes down to a 5+, no FnP on failed Nova rolls, and the weapon got weaker, down to AP4.
  • Forgeworld also launches their blog as a source of news on what they’re up to.
  • Also, check out Forge World’s FB page, they have an awesome video of a Chaos Reaver Titan that moves!
  • TSHFT is over and Team Zero Comp did work!
  • JY2 picked up the gauntlet and took the $100 challenge! Reecius said anyone that could beat him with Nids while he played the studio Taudar army would get a $100 dollar cash prize! JY2 went for it and it was a great game, check it out!

  • The Mega Mats are almost here! We will be shipping them out in the near future, so if you bought yours in the first product run, you will have them in your hands very soon! The second run will arrive in early April. Also, keep your eyes open for a new and improved “Table in a Box” product from Frontline Gaming that is going to be awesome!

Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  • Rumors that a plastic Chaos Space Marine/Chosen box is coming! Awesome, hopefully it comes with rules to make them a playable unit! Follow up rumors over at Faeit212 about Plastic Havocs, too! Sweet!
  • Rumors that US Gamesday will not be happening.
  • Rumors that GW is moving more to digital with White Dwarf and that the rules included in them will be there to supplement releases as Plastic Kits are finished for already existing armies.
  • More rumors about Dwarves coming soon! We don’t know yet, but as soon as you see them on GW’s website, we can sell them!
  • Rumors about GW closing stores, consolidating HQ, and dropping or reducing product lines.

    Frankie’s army looks even better in person.

    I saw him kicking ass and taking names at tshft this past weekend.

    Is he playing at the LVO? Hope I get a chance to play against him. And reecius one day. But I live in Vancouver Canada. So that makes it tough. I’ll be rocking aqua marine Dark/dar at the LVO.

      He is helping run the LVO, he and I do not get to play.
