Direct Misfire Missive: 2019 wrap up

December 21, 2019

As the year is coming to a close the fellas thought it might be nice to have a chat about the year that was.

Join Bensome, Sellick, and Huw and they present the equivalent podcast version of a filler episode. They share the good, the bad, their hopes and dreams for 2020, as well as a swathe of other minor talking points. 

I've said it before and i'll say it again (seriously, look at the 2018 wrap up blurb); from all the guys at Direct Misfire I'd sincerely like to thank you all for sticking with us and to continue enabling our obsession with war gaming.

Take care of yourselves and each other over the holiday period.

Enjoy!

Tournament Wrap up & 3rd Edition Rumours

Tournament Wrap up & 3rd Edition Rumours

August 26, 2019

" What's this.. another episode.. but that's... two in a month!" 
That's right imaginary person -  Bensome, Sellick and our extra salty guest Huw, return to chat through a couple of tournaments Convic & Hammerfall. We then finish with a quick chat about 3rd edition rumours that are floating about the deepest corners of the internet. 

With the extra content in this cast, it's a touch longer than your average commute, so feel free to just stay on that train cause work can wait.  We may be frozen by the 3rd edition Kings of War releasing in a few weeks but, let us warm, and distract your hearts for the next hour and a half.

Hope Enjoy!

July 7, 2019

Bensome, Sellick and special guest Huw return to the netisphere to discuss more Kings of War! "Low point" is an apt description of today's cast as it's all about strats, lists and the do's and do not's of low point games. 

Also for added value Ronnie send is love with a very important message that no one should miss. Yes it would be easier to transcribe what he said into this description for your convenience but bugger ya; If you want dessert you need to eat your veggies. :p

** Note, the audio quality isn't the greatest this ep. Teething problems with a new form of recording audio with online guests. This should be sorted by the next interview.
