Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 59: TYRANID CODEX REVIEW: Part 1

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, and Chandler join forces to start the epic Tyranid Codex Review.  It is almost Thanksgiving, and the Nid Players are Thankful for a great bounty of possible options in this new codex.  The guys sit down to start off this review by going through the Hive Fleet adaptations, the Stratagems, and to start the discussion on what we think of the Warlord Traits and some fun synergies.  We also start to discuss possible list building, because there has been a ton of list being sent over the FTGT Communication Array.  Bryan is finishing up some painting for Renegade, Evan and Chandler are both back from Warzone, but the only thing on the collective Hive Mind are the New and Improved Bugs.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 58: Warzone Prep and Hints with Kelly Wallace

What is up Everyone? Ron, Evan, and Chandler are joined by Kelly Wallace, Field Marshall, of the General Staff to break down Warzone.  With just under two weeks to prepare, Kelly heard our last podcast and decided to join us to break down the missions, talk about the tournament and how they set things up, and bring some good knowledge (seriously, Chandler was taking notes during the podcast at that point [NERD]).  He also talks about some of the ideas for the future, some of the major changes and minor changes made (look at the Facebook and Website for updates), and what to expect for November 10th-12th.  It is a fun entertaining podcast with one of the taller members of General Staff and a guy who with a bunch of friends have made one of the best tournaments in the US.

The Field Marshall commands you to Listen to this Podcast!

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 57: Warzone Atlanta Mission Pack and Tournament Prep

What is up Everyone? Bryan, Evan, and Chandler sit down to break down the Mission Pack for Warzone Atlanta.  With the Tournament less than a month away, the guys go through from the setup, to what can be rerolled, and each mission.  The missions are discussed about the scoring, some of the things we like and don't like, and our thoughts on challenges that could pop up in the mission.  Bryan talks about the Death Guard that will be making their way to the Renegade Open and his thoughts on Distraction Units and where and how to use them.  A fun podcast breaking down missions, just like we have done in the past.

The Missions for Warzone are out, and the boys break them down while talking a little strategy.

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, Ron, and Chandler come together to recap the NOVA Open.  Ron and Evan showed up with some of our mates from the Blog to join in on one of the premier events on the East Coast.  They discuss the overall tournament, some thoughts on the Meta, and the awesome showing from vendors like GW.  Everyone follows up by discussing WarZone Atlanta and Renegade, the next two tournaments coming up for the podcast and where we are with our individual lists.  To round out the show, Death Guard come knocking.  Like a plague, the boys can't help but talk about how awesome the army is, how cool the models are looking, and some of the fun stuff they want to try once all of the goodies are up.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 55: Kill Team Event and NOVA Prep

What is up Everyone? Evan, Bryan, Ron, and Chandler come together for that special time of the year:  Tournament Season.  One of our listeners asked us to give him some list ideas for a Kill Team Event going on this weekend.  The Boys put their collective brains together to give a few list ideas, some thoughts on Kill Team Events, and what are some armies that could do especially well.  We then get right into NOVA.  Evan and Ron are representing the Grey Tide this year and talk about their lists (SURPRISE - They're taking NIDS!).  They also talk about the tournament, some of the neat events this year, and of course we round out our podcast with some wishful Nid thinking.

Kill Team: CHECK.  NOVA: DOUBLE CHECK.  Hands Across America: CHECK!

NOVA Bound: 2017

It's been a pretty quiet year on the blog, but as far as my first and biggest event of the year, NOVA, not much has changed this year. We're in the home stretch, and I feel like I'm still a ways away in terms of preparation; business as usual.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 54: Codex Space Marine Review

What is up Everyone? Bryan, Evan, Ron, and Chandler sit down for this week's podcast to review the first 8th edition codex:  Codex Space Marines!  It has been a long time since the boys were all together and an even longer time since a proper codex review was done.  Everything is discussed from the incredible background that was done into all of the armies histories, to updates to some key units, and of course they talk about the latest Primaris models and some of the big changes that happened in the unit entries and point costs.  It makes sense that with the launch of the newest edition of Warhammer 40k that GW should release the Flag Ship army Space Marines to give us a unique insight into what could be coming down the pipeline for other armies.  Sit back and enjoy an old school codex Review from the Grey Tide.

A Codex Review the only way we know how to do it!
