Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 46: The Lost Episode

What is up Everyone? Over a month ago, Chandler, Evan, and Bryan sat down to talk about Genestealer Cult, Tourney Prep, some games that we got in, and the amount of painting and hobbying we had accomplished.  Unfortunately, That episode was lost in the warp, UNTIL NOW.  The guys sit down almost a month out and after not having done a podcast in a long time, it turned into one of our old fashioned podcasts.  Lots of rambling, lots of talking, and of course, lots of Nids.

Even the Lost Episodes are eventually found.

Warzone Atlanta 2016 Pic Dump

I got back from Atlanta about 12 hours ago, as of writing this post, and have slept for maybe two hours, so, for today at least, I'm just posting up a pic-dump from the event, primarily of the armies on their display boards as I never finished a round all that early (as could be expected playing a swarm list). I'll do a wrap up with thoughts and the like, but for now will just say it was a blast and I hope you enjoy the mostly unedited influx of pictures (I'll resize and Caption as I get a chance, so check back!):

Geoff's gorgeous Blood Angels army

The Swarm Arises - Warzone Atlanta Prep

Yo, this is Ronaldo, the greatest Tyranid Player in the history of mankind. If you don’t know you will soon.

For this, my first post, I wanted to go through the list I’m going to be taking to Warzone Atlanta, and why it’s just flat out awesome. I mean, obviously, because it’s Nids.

I know a lot of people complain that the Nid codex is bad, or it’s underpowered, or whatever. It’s all crap. They’re pretty clearly just not seeing all the great stuff Games Workshop has given us Nid players that we can use to totally dominate the galaxy.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 45: Genestealer Cult Review with Heroic Intervention

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Chandler, Bryan, and Evan come together with Andrew and Chad from the Heroic Intervention Podcast to give the most in-depth Codex review for the Genestealer Cult.  We dive into everything from Winners to Winners to the couple of losers from this Codex.  We talk about some of the initial lists, some of the initial controversy with some of the rules, and have a good time connecting with another member of the Greater Hive Mind and his Dark Eldar Brother.  It is probably the most comprehensive podcast we have ever given for a Codex.

No need to roll a dice for this Heroic Intervention, it is automatic!

NOVA Recap Part 3 - My Experience

For part three of my NOVA recap, I wanted to finally get into my own experiences at NOVA. Part 1 was a pic dump primarily from the 40k hall, while part 2 dug into some of the stats from the 40k GT. I'll cover my games briefly, and hopefully discuss them a bit more in an upcoming podcast, and overall share my experiences at one of the premier hobby and gaming events out there.

NOVA Recap Part 2 - 40k GT Stats

For this part of my NOVA recap, I wanted to dive back into my stat analysis role from Torrent of Fire and break down the results. Field of Fire took a crack at the stats from the event, and I'll probably be retracing some of that ground but looking to dig a little deeper. Part of this is massaging the data a bit to get slightly more accurate results. For example, Chaos Space Marines as listed did very well, but we need to differentiate between any Chaos Space Marine primary lists and those that were actually Renegades primary.
