A new year and a new episode. This episode we have a very special guest in the form of @docbungle, writer of Miniature Musings of a Bear. We talk about #MiniatureMonday, the new Dark Angels (that we make out to be a Greek Tragedy), hobby resolutions and a bunch of other stuff.
Be warned it contains adult humour right from the start and may affect your IQ…
In episode 2 of Of Dice & Men the team talk about their hobby, wargaming blogs that have caught their eye and the importance of background in the building and playing of a game, and does poor fluff mean poor army lists?
We also learn that Jason’s mental, Adam is a deviant, Nate is in a sulk and Phil goes off on a rant. Again.
I am very excited to announce that I, with the guys from Noobhammer & War More Radio are launching the Of Dice & Men Podcast. Of Dice & Men will feature the five of us as a regular panel talking about various hobby topics and our intention is to regularly feature Bloggers and Podcasters from around the world to join in the discussion and have the piss taken out of them by me and Jase. You have been warned.
This is something Jase, Nate, John, Adam and myself have been working on for some time now and we’re all eager to see how the community receives it. If you’re interested in taking part in the show then fill out the form on the Of Dice & Men page and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. At present we’re aiming to do just one show a month – mainly due to other commitments we all have to work around – so we may not be able to get you in straight away but we’ll do what we can.
A massive thanks to Nate of Noobhammer for all his recording and editing jiggery pokery.
Anyway, without further-ado I give you the first ever episode of Of Dice & Men…
The fine chaps over at Noobhammer and I sit down and do a page by page review of the new Codex Chaos Space Marines books. When we recorded the podcast I’d literally only just got the back – literally 2 hours before – so forgive me any inaccuracies on my party and a couple of my opinions have changed.
Still, we had a blast recording it so hopefully you’ll enjoy it…
Today Jason (@noobhammerjason) of Noobhammer fame had had a shit day. Somehow, whilst trying to cheer him up, @Hitting_On_3s and I inadvertently tweeted what can only be described as a #Warmongers/Noobhammer version of the Tiger Song from The Hangover.
It tickled me so much I thought I’d share it with you all. I apologise in advance…
What do warmongers dream of, when they take a little ‘monger snooze?
Does he dream of mauling demons or Calgar in his termy suit?
Don’t you worry your pretty ‘monger head, we’re gonna get you back to Calgar and your cozy ‘monger bed.
And then we’re gonna find Noobhammer Jase, and then we’re gonna punch him in his Noobhammer face.
Jase, Jase, oh, Jase, Jaseie, Jaseie, Jase, Jase!
But if he’s been murdered by frenzon pumped cultists, well then we’re shit out of luck.
Jason of Noobhammer fame has an alter ego in the form of Warsculptor because the mad bugger does commission sculpting. Well he’s sharing the knowledge with the community and put a tutorial for you all to enjoy. If you don’t follow Jase on Twitter as either of his personas you should, he’s an ace guy and is right with us in growing the community.
An idea has been floated on Twitter that between myself and the guys behind War More Radio & Noobhammer produce an audio drama. Now the specifics haven’t been worked out. Specifically how we’d record it. Or how we’d do sound effects… I’m sure the list goes on. It may be that it’s too big a project and it doesn’t happen, but dammit it’s worth a try!
That aside, I have volunteered to write the script. Between the helpful tips given to me by Nick Kyme during his interview with me, and downloading a copy of Scrivener, I’m hoping that this won’t be too steep a mountain to climb.
The real question is; what is the audio drama going to be about? I’d like to keep it within the realms of Wargaming as it is, after all, what we’re all about, but I thought I’d throw story suggestions open to community. Post you story suggestions here, on the forum or on Twitter with the hashtag #DramaticallyShellCase.
If we choose one of your ideas you’ll get a mention in the credits and you may win a prize. But it’s going to be a free download so don’t expect to get royalties. Keep you ideas to the equivalent length of a couple of Tweets. If we like your ideas we’ll contact you for more information.
