Kings of War 3rd Ed - Ogre Army Review

April 26, 2022

Its true, Ogre's have many layers. Luckily for you and your delicate eyes; Bensome, Sellick and Huw peal them back as they deep dive into the inner workings of the much anticipated Ogre Army list.  

We talk through all of the heavy weights and the red shirt wearing little guys and of course some of the best characters in the game of Kings of War. 

Let us know what you think! Are we wrong? Are we right? Are Boomer chariots actually amazing? 

Enjoy!

Join Bensome and Huw as they dive into a delicate but delicious debrief of the most recent tournament in Melbourne Victoria. While the naming convention and creativity of Mikes tournaments may have fallen to the wayside; the attendance and calibre of opponents has continued its momentum. 

Special call out to the Geelong contingent of gamers for making the trip over to max out capacity of this tournament.

Direct Misfire Nights: CoK 2022 wrap up and results

Direct Misfire Nights: CoK 2022 wrap up and results

January 23, 2022

Hark, doth thine ears deceive? That's right, 3 episodes in one week! (take this as an apology for not releasing anything at the end of last year)

It's been a long 2 days with the lads having participated in the Australian Clash of Kings 2022 tournament. Now that it's done and dusted, join them as they briefly recount their games, discuss some highlights and compare their predictions from the previous episode. 

Once again this is a "Nights" episode so editing is minimal, volume levels are a bit all over the place (hopefully it's not too bad), and the profanity sky rockets. Anyone with sensitive ears best avoid. 

 

Otherwise, Enjoy!

Ps: we discuss a YouTube channel in this episode. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfCORDh_gubyKjuWpJTo6QQ

Hold on to your britches because a bumper interview spectacular is dropping! Rob and Kyle join the fellas, on separate occasions, to earn their keep with Mantic. (Are you listening Ronnie, they're both doing their job).

First up is Social Media Mogul Rob to explain what's going down at the end of the month. TLDR: a worldwide narrative games weekend, that's what. All aboard the hype train as it's about to leave the station.

Following that Kyle, the guy from the US who also works for Mantic (sorry, I forget your title... something about sales and distribution?) dials-in to talk all things Halflings. Not only that, he answers some very interesting questions about the upcoming Clash of Kings update. Listen as he nimbly deflects shots aimed to spill some juicy secrets, while giving us some new info that'll sure blow your mind!
