Episode 75 - Hosted by Ian with Ed and Gremlins

Don't have the show notes. Ian sits in the host seat again and discusses Gremlins with Ed. Thanks again Ian for hosting and thanks for listening! As always I want to give a huge thanks to my first sponsor who is Death Ray Designs. These guys make some brilliant looking mdf terrain, movement trays, base inserts, bases and many other products as well as commissioned model building/conversions and painting. Please give them a look and buy something from them and if you do please type BWB into the comments section when placing your order to let them know that their sponsorship was worth it. As always thank you for listening to the show. Please check out the Twitter page of myself (@danissome1) and that of the show @befwebeg. T-shirts and Hoodies can be purchased off of Spreadshirt. If you like what you hear and have a spare moment please take a minute to leave a review on iTunes as well. And last and certainly least is the Facebook page, Before We Begin Podcast. Thanks again and see you...

Episode 68 - Ian Nelson and Peter Sidaway and Ratjoy

Tonight I welcome on Ian Nelson and Peter Sidaway to talk about Ratjoy and how it stormed through Adepticon. First off huge congratulations to Dean Bilz as he piloted this list to a perfect record, and beat all three of us in the process. That said we break down the list and the basics of what it does with some help from Dean's excellent write up. After going through what it does we then proceed into ways to counter it as well as what to expect when it is deployed against you. We have a good discussion that goes through this entire mechanic and I owe a huge thanks to these two for coming on and discussing it. And then we give a very general overview of our Adepticon experience and a huge thanks to all involved that run Adepticon as it truly is a great gaming convention. Also I want to give a huge thanks to my first sponsor who is Death Ray Designs. These guys make some brilliant looking mdf terrain, movement trays, base inserts, bases and many other products.

Episode 66 - Peter Sidaway with Ten Thunders

So Rudy pinch hits again as the host and I am nowhere to be found on this podcast. I have no clue as to the content or anything that is said on this episode. Kind of exciting, and scary. But I am sure it is great as Rudy discusses lists with one Mr. Midtable Obscurity himself Peter Sidaway. Peter and I in our vassal history against each other have gone 1-1 and this will be the deciding game 3 between us. What it will determine I have no idea, but I greatly look forward to playing the game. I have not listened to this at all so that our game against each other will be played as normally as possible. So with that I do not have his lists at this time but after we play the game I will make them available. So without further ado, here are the details I do have at this point: Vassal Map : Quiet Town Deployment : Standard Strategy : Extraction Schemes : Convict Labor, Exhaust Their Forces, Hunting Party, Covert Breakthrough, Detonate The Charges As always thank you for listening to the sho...
