Facing the Grey Tide Podcast

What is up Everyone? In this episode, Chandler, Evan, and Bryan sit down to talk about a couple of subjects that have popped up recently.  First the guys tackle the Bolter Beta Rule and give their impressions on it.  With a rule that hasn't been attached to a FAQ, it is new territory and everyone lays out their opinions.  The second part deals with the subject of Hobby Burnout (Fatigue, Exhaustion, ADD, etc.) and how we have approached it in the past, what mistakes we have learned from, and how to combat it going forward.  The guys also discuss how Hobby Burnout can be caused by a variety of issues, how some of it is based on how the player plays the game, and some pitfalls that we all wonder into at some point or another. We also get an update on #TheCultRises.

What is up Everyone? In this episode, Chandler and Bryan sit down with Paul and David from the Renegade Open to do a recap of the 2018 Renegade Open.  Bryan runs down his successes and failures at both the Beerhammer event and the GT.  Paul and David go through the winners, the events outside of 40k, and talk about some of the success that they had from the event.  The guys also break down some of the changes that will be happening in 2019 as the have a Spring tournament, the Spring Conflagration (which will be May 18-19, of 2019).  They also talk about the fact that the Conflagration will be used as testing ground for the Renegade Open 2019 missions. Since this will be at the Midwest Comicon, there is more than just 40k at this cool event.  Finally the guys throw in some wisdom about lessons learned on the table, things to consider when trying to improve, and how to really know if your deployment screwed you.

What is up Everyone? Tonight on the podcast, Evan, Bryan, and Chandler break out the beer, the lists, the match-ups, and talk about the NOVA Invitational.  With a heavy hitter list, with match-ups that look into a mirror, and with Evan going up against one of the toughest opponents in the World (look he was part of the Team USA win at the ETC) in Nick Nanavati, we talk about everything we can when it comes to the Invitational.  What more could you ask for? Well glad you asked.  We talk about our thoughts on some of the key matches, we joke about some of the match-ups, and we try to figure out a tactic to help Evan win, and if Evan wins, who he could face down the road.  It's a fun time getting ready for the NOVA Invitational, and we do it the Grey Tide Way.  Don't forget to check out the link to the 2018 NOVA Open 40k Invitational Challenge Bracket!  Will Evan pull the upset?  Will Blood Angels, Knights, and Guard rule the Day?  Will we see a perfect bracket?  Only time will tell!

What is up Everyone? This week Chandler, Evan, and Bryan are talking about their thoughts on the possible FAQ, their thoughts on the the new mini knights, and the release of Tau.  The boys start to talk about what they think of the Tau codex in terms of GW's possible greater move, some of their thoughts on lists leading into Adepticon, and how the mini Knights fit into all of this idea.  The boys also talk briefly about their thoughts on some of the other issues that might exist between the true state of the game and where GW sees the game.  The second half of the game, they talk about the Tau codex and their initial thoughts.  With a very limited time of looking at the Tau Codex, the boys give their initial thoughts on the codex, and they see a very high infantry count army in the future.  They finish off with a little Necron talk since the release of some preliminary rules have hit the web.

 

 

The boys are back after a mini break, and the future looks to be on the ground.

What is up Everyone? This week Chandler, Evan, and Bryan are talking about crazy list designs and where there place in list building lies.  We talk about how these lists come up, how we should approach the lists, what can we take from crazy list building.  Evan and Bryan bring some key points on what to do with certain lists and where the lists should be played.  We then jump into some of the crazy Nid lists and some fun lists that we have come up with.  How do we feel about Sporocysts?  How many is too many Tyrants?  Are outflanking Primaris Marines worth their costs?  What happens when you confuse the rules?  All of these have played into the crazy lists at one point or another, and the guys discuss where that happy valley lies.

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, and Chandler work their way into a healthy discussion about the most recent tournaments they went to:  The Renegade Open and Warzone:  Atlanta.  Bryan starts the night off by going through his list, talking about some of the fun moments and crucial decisions he made, and the overall feel of one of the top tournaments in the Midwest.  Dave and Puck really know how to setup a fun and challenging event.  Chandler and Evan then breakdown their round by round games as they discuss some of the challenges that happened with the missions, some of the fun aspects of the opponents and games they played, and then talk about some of the finer moments of the tournament.  This is one of the Biggest Warhammer 40k Parties in the Nation and the men and women from the General Staff do a hell of a job putting it all together.

 

 

 

We've got a fever, and the only cure, is more Tournaments!

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, and Chandler join forces to start the epic Tyranid Codex Review.  It is almost Thanksgiving, and the Nid Players are Thankful for a great bounty of possible options in this new codex.  The guys sit down to start off this review by going through the Hive Fleet adaptations, the Stratagems, and to start the discussion on what we think of the Warlord Traits and some fun synergies.  We also start to discuss possible list building, because there has been a ton of list being sent over the FTGT Communication Array.  Bryan is finishing up some painting for Renegade, Evan and Chandler are both back from Warzone, but the only thing on the collective Hive Mind are the New and Improved Bugs.

What is up Everyone? Ron, Evan, and Chandler are joined by Kelly Wallace, Field Marshall, of the General Staff to break down Warzone.  With just under two weeks to prepare, Kelly heard our last podcast and decided to join us to break down the missions, talk about the tournament and how they set things up, and bring some good knowledge (seriously, Chandler was taking notes during the podcast at that point [NERD]).  He also talks about some of the ideas for the future, some of the major changes and minor changes made (look at the Facebook and Website for updates), and what to expect for November 10th-12th.  It is a fun entertaining podcast with one of the taller members of General Staff and a guy who with a bunch of friends have made one of the best tournaments in the US.

What is up Everyone? Bryan, Evan, and Chandler sit down to break down the Mission Pack for Warzone Atlanta.  With the Tournament less than a month away, the guys go through from the setup, to what can be rerolled, and each mission.  The missions are discussed about the scoring, some of the things we like and don't like, and our thoughts on challenges that could pop up in the mission.  Bryan talks about the Death Guard that will be making their way to the Renegade Open and his thoughts on Distraction Units and where and how to use them.  A fun podcast breaking down missions, just like we have done in the past.

 

 

The Missions for Warzone are out, and the boys break them down while talking a little strategy.

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, Ron, and Chandler come together for that special time of the year:  Tournament Season.  One of our listeners asked us to give him some list ideas for a Kill Team Event going on this weekend.  The Boys put their collective brains together to give a few list ideas, some thoughts on Kill Team Events, and what are some armies that could do especially well.  We then get right into NOVA.  Evan and Ron are representing the Grey Tide this year and talk about their lists (SURPRISE - They're taking NIDS!).  They also talk about the tournament, some of the neat events this year, and of course we round out our podcast with some wishful Nid thinking.

What is up Everyone? Bryan, Evan, Ron, and Chandler sit down for this week's podcast to review the first 8th edition codex:  Codex Space Marines!  It has been a long time since the boys were all together and an even longer time since a proper codex review was done.  Everything is discussed from the incredible background that was done into all of the armies histories, to updates to some key units, and of course they talk about the latest Primaris models and some of the big changes that happened in the unit entries and point costs.  It makes sense that with the launch of the newest edition of Warhammer 40k that GW should release the Flag Ship army Space Marines to give us a unique insight into what could be coming down the pipeline for other armies.  Sit back and enjoy an old school codex Review from the Grey Tide.

Bryan, Evan, and Chandler sit down this week to recap the ATC where Team FTGT made the first showing.  It was an incredible event and Chandler and Evan break down the match-ups, how they did, how the team did, and also some of the crazier lists that we saw there.  It was an incredible time with a bunch of teams, a hell of a lot of people, and some good ole fashioned dice rolling.  It was an event that has to be attended at least once, and we are excited to be heading back next year.

What is up Everyone? Bryan, Evan, and Chandler sit down this week to go over some listener questions. As many of you know, with the newest edition of Warhammer 40k dropping, there is bound to be some questions on scenarios, the meta, and opinions on tournaments announcing what their plans will be.  The guys put the combined knowledge together to answer a few before getting into one of the podcast's favorite past times:  List Building with Tyranids.  Evan and Bryan talk about some of their lists they have started to put together, some initial thoughts on a few units, and start to try to figure out who the all-stars will be.  Once again, the Podcast is ready to go answer the tough questions: Will The Sporelord Rise?

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Evan, Bryan, and Chandler are back to talk about everything new in the World of Space Marines.  Then we realized that there was a lot more going on.  We run down the Tournament NRVCon (this is two nights before the event.  Evan talks about the tournament, his list, and we talk about some of the rules for the event.  We discuss the differences among the 7th edition books, and we finish up by running down anything that comes to our minds, including a fun list building challenge.

 

 

A tournament, talking about a Codex, fun challenges, and shenanigans!  It's all good in the hood.

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Evan, Ron, Bryan, and Chandler answer some fan emails and break down their thoughts about the Las Vegas Open, or LVO.  The Podcast starts off with some bold predictions, some overall thoughts on the Tournament, and also kind of the state of the ITC and some lists that they expect.  In addition, James and Geoff get their questions answered about how to try to beat Grey Knights with Nidzilla style lists, how to run Mephiston in a solely Blood Angels force, and then the biggest question of all; how can you get out of a 40k rut.

What is up Everyone?  This week on the podcast, Bryan, Chandler, and Evan sit down to talk about the newest game to come across their tables:  Star Wars Armada.  The boys start off by going through a couple of their armies that they are working on, and get into the complexity of building lists that are fun and outside of the box.  They then hit the big topic of Armada.  What they enjoy, some of the fun things that have happened, and the fact that for such a "simplistic" looking game, it has a depth of strategy that can't be beat.  Plus, who doesn't love commanding a Star Destroyer?

What is up everyone?  It is another Friday and another Podcast is ready.  This week on the show saw a return from one of our favorite TO's and Life Coaches, Mike Brandt.  Mike joined us as he did last year to promote the NOVA, talk about everything that is going on this year, some new events, some new features, and all the shenanigans we could fit in before his phone died.  This is Part 1, where Mike talks up the NOVA and the boys are excited to talk shop.  To end the show, Evan talks about his newest list that he has thrown together that brings Necrons and Eldar to the field.  It is a little something we like to call Arachnophobia.  

 

 

Brandt is Back and ready to lay out everything NOVA.

Facing the Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 7:  Paul Murphy Surfs the Grey Tide

What's up Everyone?  It's another week and another Special Guest on the Podcast.  This week we were able to hunt down The Man, The Myth, and The Legend that is Paul Murphy of Forge the Narrative and we welcomed Paul tonight to talk about everything that happened at AdeptiCon, List Building, and the missions that he has been working on.  It was a pleasure to talk to him and get his insight on some hot topics that are currently in the world of 40k.

 

Paul came in ready to roll, grabbed his surf board, and road the Grey Tide into shore.  We even had time to fire up the Delorean for a few old stories.  FYI - First Blood went to him.

 

Enjoy the Episode.
