Direct Misfire Missive: Kings of Fight Club Round 1

Direct Misfire Missive: Kings of Fight Club Round 1

July 12, 2020

Massage those eye muscles and loosen up those traps because a world of cringe is headed your way. Yes the first round of Kings of Fight Club has been completed and within are the results.

Presented in a mock commentary sports gig type thing, listen as three guys with almost no commentary experience fumble their way through eight rounds of combat.

Behind the curtain: we played a bunch of one vs one games using the paired heroes in a set, circular board. What you're about to hear is a dramatisation of the events that took place. Use of imagination is greatly advised.

Enjoy!

 

PS. Let us know if this was any good. It took way longer to edit than normal and i'd rather not have to do it again if it causes irreparable ear damage. Cheers.

Kings of War v3: Ratkin army review

May 13, 2020

Lock the doors, close the shutters and don your N95 mask as the lads put the Ratkin army under the microscope. Join them at a safe distance as they isolate each aspect of the army and inform the public on the do's and don'ts on all things ratty. 

Settle in for this quarantine-length episode and don't forget to wash your hands when it's done. 

Enjoy!

 

PS: Huw makes many references to an "impeded" rule; he meant Hindered (I wasn't going to swap them out as it would have taken forever).

Direct Misfire Missive: CoK Au 2020 wrap up

Direct Misfire Missive: CoK Au 2020 wrap up

February 6, 2020

Live, unhinged, and recorded in Canberra; home of the Clash of Kings Australia 2020! Joined by special guests Andrew and Viv, the fellas discuss their predictions for the event before recounting their experiences. 

Recorded over 2 days, the audio on this one isn't the greatest as the setup is different from the usual (so don't get used to it - this isn't going to be the new standard).

Also for those with delicate sensibilities be warned. There's a few naughty words thrown about during the course of conversations.

Enjoy!

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!

Hark! Do thine ears deceive you? Nay, they do not for what you are about to experience is truth! Kyle "Pretzel" Przelenski, The Master of Crafted, joins the cast to open cans of worms, spill the beans, and upturn this barrel of monkeys.

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!
