If you have not checked out the Army Showcase recently, then you probably do not know that I moved the site over to www.tabletopbattlefield.com. However, if everything worked as expected, then you should not notice a thing. This short episode is designed to see if the RSS feed is still working as expected. There are WMV and MP3 versions of this episode. I do not have an MP4 of it at the moment. Oh and Have a Happy New Year Everyone!

I really don't know how this episode disappeared from the feed, but It really needs to be here since it is probably our best episode ever. Of course you will not learn anything too useful...Except that: 1) Hot Glue is Hot 2) Kyle Hates Flower Glasses 3) Jason Screws Up a lot 4) We waste a lot of tape filming this episode

Episode 22 - Out First Look at Heroscape: Swarm of the Marro

We are trying a new show type tonight. We are basically do as live of a show as a podcast can get[That is one reason for the early release]. Instead of my usual amount of editing, we are quite a bit more animated in this episode. I literally just got back from the store with a copy of the new Heroscape Master Set - Swarm of the Marro. Ryan and I tear through it and we give you our first impressions of the game. Big Hint: Its looks cool so far.

Ok, I took this week of from talking about miniature wargames to talk about the hardware of podcasting. I have wasted too much money trying to get this thing working and didn't want any of you to make the same mistakes I have if you decide to enter the world of Podcasting.

Be warned, you may get dizzy watching the video. I shot this one from a first person perspective and you may have noticed in the past that I can be quite animated when I talk :)

In the next Episode I'll be back to regular topics.

After Last Week's Episode I didn't plan a normal show because of the audio issues. Therefore, the show is shorter then normal. Instead I compiled several different segments together. First up, I give a demo painting of a Babylon 5 Avenger Class Carrier. Then I build a model for games on the scale of Mechwarrior and Classic Battletech.

Episode 6 - Review of Heroscape, Star Wars Miniatures, and Babylon 5 : A call to Arms

Jason reviews the games listed above. Here is a quick summary of the results:
Heroscape: 9 out of 10 - Awesome Figures, Excellent Board Design, Simple Rules, Lots of Unit Variety, Annoying Clean Up, Lack of Unit Customization
Star Wars Miniatures: 5 out of 10 - Game result seems to be determined by who gets LOS and rolls the highest value first.
Babylon 5: 8 out of 10 - Best figures ever, Simple but diverse damage modeling, Has all the races from the show, Fairly simple rules though ship movement is slightly more complex then typical miniature games.

Episode 4 - Custom MechWarrior Scenarios

In this episode, Jason and Kyle discuss a hill capture scenario they have played before. In addition, we create the rules for a new scenario as a demonstration of what is involved for creating a scenario.

Links for the Scenario Rules
The Canyon Scenario

In the mean time, here are the quick rules for the Hill Scenario:
Attacker has 900 Points and the Defender has 600 Points.
The Board size is 48" by 48". The Defender's deployment zone is about 2 Square feet of Elevated Terrain. The Attacker has a standard deployment zone on the opposite side of the board.
The objective for the attacker is to take the hill. When time expires count VC2 points for the units in the Defender's deployment zone(The Elevated Terrain) The player with the most points wins the scenario.
Time Limit: The Attacker has 20 minutes to complete their objective. The Defender has no time limit.

Episode 3 of the Tabletop Battlefield - Warhammer 40K Patrol Armies.

I'm still in the testing phase of The Battlefield and this episode came out a little shorter then the ideal 40 minutes.(Its about 23). I am joined by Graham. to discuss how to get into the World of Warhammer 40K without spending a lot of money, your first born child, or several important body parts. The answer is 400 Point Patrol Armies. I introduce two armies, one for the Tyranids, and one for the Tau. Both of these are based on the battlion boxed sets. Graham covers his 400 point Eldar army.

Here are some of the links mentioned

Season 01 Episode 01 - The Future of Mechwarrior

Jan 08 2007

Download File: [MP3] [MP4] [WMV]


See how this show got started with myself, Kyle, a Camera, and some Mechwarrior Figures.

Today we are talking about Mechwarrior Dark Age by Wizkids. First we discuss some of the coming changes to the game. In addtion, we discuss some house rules that we have used when playing games of Mechwarrior. To conclude we take a quick look at the Mechwarrior Short Film.

This show features Jason Rutherford and Kyle Menzies

I have listed some of our house rules below:
  • When a unit is given an order, it may move and make a standard attack or it may make a special attack.
  • A standard attack is a Ranged Attack or Close Combat Attack
  • A special attack is a Charge,Ram,DFA, or Artillery attack.
  • Infantry and Vehciles are considered pushed when they have three order tokens on them. A unit can be given an order if it results in giving the unit more then three tokens.
  • Every time a infantry or vehicle moves or attacks, it recieves an order token. An artilley attack gives a unit two order tokens.
  • Mechs never generate heat or recieve a token when walking. All other actions give heat and tokens as normal.
  • Mechs can either make two ranged attacks or one ranged and one close combat attack in one turn.
  • When making an artilley attack, subtract two from the attack value of the unit and add 1d6 inches to the drift of the token, unless the artilley unit has a LOS to the token, or a spotter has LOS to the token/
  • Any infantry can spot for a token within 14". This action does not count as an order, but the spotter cannot perform any actions while spotting.
