A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan, Paul and Matt

In Episode 24 Jon, Dan and Paul are joined by Matt James, the tournament organiser for the recent South West Clash 2 dayer.  The guys talk about their activities at AltiBash and at the South West Clash...in some detail... 

The episode is a little longer than normal but we hope you enjoy the discussion about the games we played.  Remember, tournaments are not all about playing games, they are also about meeting new people, making memories and drinking champagne cocktails at 8:30am in a Bristol Industrial Estate...

Episode 21: Paul's Lonewolf Adventure... oh wait.. 

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan, Paul and Matt

In Episode 21, Jon, Nick, Dan, Matt (yes, really) and Paul (he enjoyed Episode 20 so much he decided to stay) chat about events in Hinckley, Leicestershire and Fort Worth, Texas. 

First there is the shocking revelation that Nick won an event and the slightly less shocking revelation that Paul won a best painted prize at the recent BDM event, before Nick, Dan and Jon talk about their adventures in Texas, including the pitfalls of playing jenga with Drunk Dan and why eating random green lumps in a sushi bar can lead to a painful burning sensation.  They even talk a little about their games; inbetween talking about drink and food.

They also look ahead to upcoming events and Nick suggests a FFS 2-day event in February... stay tuned for more details. 

Edited bits: Limited editing of rants..

Episode 20: Fools of War, AltiBash4 and hobby chat with Paul Welsh

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt (who?)

In Episode 20, Jon, Nick and Dan chat to KoW newcomer (and superb painter / hobbyist) Paul Welsh.  Paul's Varangrrr army has been winning admiration on KoW Fanatics and having already claimed a win vs. Dan he is rapidly becoming a great KoW player.

Nick, Dan and Paul talk about the recent two-dayer, Fools of War and we have a preview of the upcoming AltiBash4 event.

Hobby is focused on preparation for the upcoming Lonewolf GT, with Dan and Nick having quite of work to do (and smug Jon realising that he still has lots to do too..).

Edited bits: No edits and boy can you tell...  sound levels were hard to balance due to laughter throughout

Episode 19: Interview with a Power Gamer (of sort)

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt (who?)

In Episode 19, Jon and Dan chat to hobby genius Chris Walsh.  Chris recently won an event at Black Dragon Miniatures (and therefore we invited him on).  For some unexplained reason, we then spent the best part of an hour talking about painting...  It's almost like we are hobby gamers after all!

Thanks again to Chris for sharing some top tips on painting and basing.

Episode 18: It's all about the hobby...

A Kings of War (KoW) podcast, with Nick, Jon, Dan and Matt (who?)

In Episode 18, Jon, Dan and Nick take a break from talking about tournaments and instead focus on their new armies.  Or in Jon's case, some additions to his Varangrrrr army.  Will Dan's Varangrrrr really have bow troops in?  Will Nick's army remain tasty to Milo...

Edited bits: No edits!  Even when Nick's microphone cut-out and neither Jon or Dan noticed...
