Episode 17: A whole lot of CoK

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt (seriously, where is Matt these days?!)

In Episode 17, Jon, Dan and Nick talk about the Clash of Kings 2016 with very brief summaries of their games; before moving on to preview the Aire Conflict and look forward to CoK 2017 in the City of Cardiff.  They also discuss the next armies they are planning to build and paint.

We also have some audio from the CoK awards ceremony, with Darren Parkes receiving his award to universal adulation...

Edited bits: Jon demonstrates his lack of understanding of irony (things that are made of iron), Milo (Nick's dog) joins the call and we end with Nick losing his connection...

Episode 16: AltiBash2 & Black Dragon event reports and CoK preparation

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt (seriously, where is Matt these days?!)

In Episode 16, Jon, Dan and Nick talk about the recent tournaments run by the Sharp brothers - AltiBash2 (Andrew) and Morgoth's Gambit (Garry).  Spoiler alert: Dan didn't win either event. 

Then we talk about the upcoming Clash of Kings (aka. CoK), cue lots of references to "biggest CoK ever" and "CoK action".  Dan, Nick and Jon all talk about the armies they will be taking, Saturday night entertainment and sleeping arrangements (!)

Edited bits: The (probable) venue for CoK 2017 was discussed but cut as this isn't finalised yet...  you'll just have to wait :)

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt.  Episode 9 and the team (minus sleepy Matt) are joined by Darren "Lordy" Parkes to discuss the recent "Winter War" KoW event at The Grid in Doncaster.

Spoiler: Darren won but the real winner was Jonathan Luke who managed to get a winning draw vs. Dan.  Darren "submariner" Parkes jumped from 3rd to 1st and avoided the two best players... just saying..

Dan's overly generous nature is being worked on.  Can't have those Yanks taking advantage..

0 to 3mins : Introductions

3 to 58 mins: Event report

59 to 65 mins: Rules questions from Darren

65 to 68 mins: Closing

 

Edited bits: Very little...

Jan 22, 2016

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt.  Episode 8 and the team are joined by Chris Nicholls, owner of Macrocosm Miniatures.  Macrocosm's Short Wars range of Goblins, Halflings and Dark Dwarfs are a great fit for KoW.   

Chris is returning to KoW events this year and has Dan in his cross-hairs.  With an impressive record of 1 win, 1 loss and 1 draw vs. the champion, Chris feels he's the player to take the challenge to Dan in 2016.

And there is some history between the two of them, Chris came 4th at the first CoK event and he's not at all bitter about his loss to Dan that cost him £750..

Oh - and we pay homage to Caleb's "English" accent.  With Kyle, Caleb produces superb KoW videos.  Check them out on YouTube (search "Master Crafted")

Things that failed to make the cut:

At least three of Dan's "jokes", the world of extreme ironing and Jon's extensive knowledge of Ohio.
