Direct Misfire: CoK Au 2019 round up

February 25, 2019

A new year, a new Clash of Kings Australia round-up. Bensome, Spoon, and Sellick return along with special guest Huw, to recap all that went down at Cancon 2019.

A language warning does apply for this episode, so keep the kiddies away lest you risk your children's ears from un-hearing some things. Also anyone who purses their lips at the sound of an f-bomb best you don't listen either.

Thou haveth been warned-eth.


Otherwise, enjoy!

Grab your halters, hoof picks, hand shears, and crook as Direct Misfire tackle the long-talked-about, often-delayed army review of The Herd! 

Assisting Bensome corral the livestock are special guests Huw (from The Red Jokers fame) and head shepherd himself: Kris Kapsner (from the Lake SWATT fantasy squad podcast). Settle in as they deep dive into the throng, covering the army units, items, strats and formations. 

Kris also drops a couple of exclusives from the upcoming Clash of Kings 2019 supplement!!!



*The Herd background story music taken from Syrinscape soundboard. 

** 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.

Direct Misfire Missive: We’re not dead yet

October 5, 2018

We're baaaack! Yep, the guys have returned from wherever it was they went and are ready to tell you all about it. More an exercise in "relearning how to podcast" than anything informative (but really, how often does that actually happen?), it's still better than nothing.

Join Bensome, Spoon and Sellick for a short but sweet auditory excursion as they try to explain their absence, find the answer to the greatest question ever asked, and solve all of life's mysteries*.



*non of this may actually have been recorded... just take our word for it.

Direct Misfire: CoK Au 2018 round up

February 28, 2018

Champions! We have returned (finally) to bring you all more podcasty goodness. Our first episode for the year has us straining to remember what happened at the Clash of Kings Au tournament. The heat from the oversized tin shed that is Cancon must have taken its toll.

We persevere in any case with the help from the man with more charm than a leprechaun, Huw (of "The Red Jokers" podcast fame).

So settle in for a recount of all 28 games... it's not that painful, I promise.

From all the guys at Direct Misfire I'd sincerly like to thank you all for sticking with us and enabling our obsession with wargaming.

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