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!

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 44: Back At It Again

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Chandler, Bryan, and Evan come together to talk.  It has been a long time and the boys have been busy.  Evan returns from NOVA with some insight, Bryan is getting ready for The Renegade, and Chandler and Evan talk about their initial prep for Warzone Atlanta.  Since the last show, Genestealer Cult drops, Blood Angels have been summoned, and 40k is crazier than ever.  The boys jump from topic to topic after a long hiatus.

Episode 44 goes from Point to Point before bringing it home.

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.

NOVA 2016 Recap Part 1 - Pic Dump

A bit behind my normal schedule, but finally time to begin the NOVA Recaps. As always, I had a total blast at the event, and might have had more fun this year than in previous years. For this first post I'm just going to do a bit of a pic-dump of many of my favorite photos from the weekend.

NOVA Bound: The Final Push

Amazing how time flies; NOVA is less than a week away at this point (more exact time in the side-bar counter), and I still have a good bit to do (to the surprise of no one). I've got a couple projects I need to finish up before I head out the door to NOVA, and some more I will probably be working on in the hotel room.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 43: Ben Cromwell Jumps In

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, the boys welcome back Ben Cromwell.  Ben is an awesome painter who is helping Evan with the FTGT Painting service, but he joins us to talk about the Iron Halo GT.  This is an ITC Major Event in Barlesville, OK.  He also talks to us about his thoughts on Deathwatch and the Necron FAQ.  He also drops his ideas about Eldar and what he is planning to run at the Iron Halo GT.  We are excited to talk to him, get the updates from Ron and Evan about their lists for NOVA, and Bryan and Chandler are still working towards their individual tournaments coming up in the fall.

Ben joins us for fun, shenanigans, and to talk about a cool tournament for a great cause.
