FSA: Second Impressions

It’s easy for a tabletop war game to make a good first impression these days.

Advancements in sculpting and molding technology give even the smallest of companies the ability to create high detail miniatures for their tabletop games. The modern age of technology allows for hardcore numbers crunching to create a balanced gaming system with as little as an Excel spreadsheet. The internet allows for marketing and word of mouth traction on a global scale. It allows even the smallest of tabletop communities to thrive and grow and organize. So from the viewpoint of someone who was not in on the ground floor of the game launch, it can all look very spectacular on first glance.

It’s after a game or two that you really begin to see the flaws. Much like waking up next to a wookie the morning after a night of heavy drinking and debauchery, that ‘New-Game’ thrill just isn’t there anymore. The point is that as easy as it is to make a good first impression, it’s ten times harder to make a good second impression for many of the same reasons I stated above.

So what am I trying to qualify here by saying all this?

Episode 24: They’re Psychic… we get it… move on.

It’s time for Lange and Nathan to delve into the horrors of a new Matt Ward codex… the Daemon Hunters 2.0 (AKA: Grey Knights) ((AKA: A failure of a codex)) That’s right! We take some time to talk about the Lizardmen in this weeks Higher Learning segment and talk about one of the worst and most irritating things to come out of this new codex in our Stupidity check. Grab a drink and listen in as we rip into most psychotically psychic books every to join the 40K landscape.

Blood for the Blood God Reminder!

I wanted to post a quick reminder about the Blood for the Blood God Contest. I received the model last week but between being ill, prepping for the Apoc weekend and getting more sick, I haven’t had a chance to post until now.

Despite what the original contest stated, I am not ending the contest right away. Why? Because as a tournament organizer, I KNOW gamers.

This disease affects 100% of gamers in the Country-stan area.

As a result, I am going to leave this up for one more week. April 15 is the deadline for entries into the contest.

The rules are really simple. Donate blood or make a donation to disaster relief in Japan. If you donate money, each $25 will give you an entry into the draw. $100 = 4 entries.

Also, I wanted to list the prizes again as there have been some additions:

1. Forge World Demon Prince of Khorne

2. $60 in GW gift certificates or the box set of your dreams!

3. A shiny hard cover copy of the Orcs & Goblins Army Book (I got 2 somehow).

So go out and donate blood (or money)! Remember, I am not advocating bribing the homeless to donate blood for additional entries but…you know what? I TOTALLY am.

Episode 23: The Challenge

P-Town is where the scene is set for the epic battle between Nathan and Matt. Blood Angels VS Tyranids at 8,000pts!! LET’S GET IT ON!! The topic stays with the idea of Apocalypse games, how they can be handled, and where they fall short. As the game plays out we are joined by Jon Wong who talks a bit of strategy before we are joined once again by the two combatants. Who will come out as the victor in this epic battle? Listen and find out!!
