Episode 92 – IA:2 and The Assault on Escalation

ep92cover_webEpisode 92 is our final show of 2013 for The Independent Characters. We wrap up the year talking at length about Escalation and Stronghold Assault. In particular we discuss the communities reactions to these two supplements and how we are treating them here in our community.

In addition to that, we have a copy of Imperial Armour 2 (Second Edition): War Machines of The Adeptus Astartes. This is Andy Hoares first IA book since returning to Games Workshop. We take a close look at it and ultimately tell you if we think this book is worth buying or not. We end that discussion with our patented “Bang for your Buck” rating of the latest release from Forge World.

What they heck, we also include our regular segment of The Workbench and Tabletop discussion. Now with more Hobby Progress!

Speaking of Hobby Progress. Don’t miss signing up for the 2014 Hobby Progress Challenge! It starts soon and all details can be found in the links below.

Have a Happy Holiday and an Amazing New Year! We will see you in 2014!

    Thank you for talking about the rampant panic concerning escalation and stronghold. I totally agree that we need to encourage new players not tell them the game sucks. The system is so easy. Play what you want and don't play the parts you don't want. I play in tournaments because it's a good way to get three games in. Honestly I don't think tournaments are gonna have a hard time with this in the in.
