Combat Phase
We talk news, weekly update with #New40K updates and reflections, hobby and games played. In our discussion we look at game mats for your wargaming hobby, regardless of game. We're joined by Reece at Front Line Gaming to chat about their amazing mats (and more!) after Rob from Gamemats.com, a new mat producer, chats with Kenny. Don't forget to check out the SoCal Open in gorgeous Southern California.
 
As always see below for contacts and discount codes for our listeners and enjoy! 
 
We're aware the last episode was running audio in headphones to only one track so we've fixed that and hopefully the tech gremlins are finally done with us. Internet boosted, new headset/mic, but can't do much if noise on a guest's side. Soon all pre-recorded interviews will be out and all the audio will be current and consistent. We appreciate your patience. :)

International Orders (temporarily):

We're using eBay as a stopgap until we can work some details out with our shipper for international orders. People can purchase our mats on eBay and we use eBay's Global Shipping Program to deliver. The Buyer gets a quote for shipping to their location before they click the Buy It Now button. We deliver the mat to eBay's Global Shipping Center snd they forward it to the Buyer. 

 

Alternately, international customers can email us at "customerservice@gamemats.com" for a shipping quote. 

 

Retailers can contact us at "retailers@gamemats.com" for retail terms. 

 

Testing retail with a few stores now

 

PrinTerrain - 3D Printable Tabletop Wargame Terrain - will launch soon with a small test launch. We plan to also have some content for the community (blog & video) about 3D printing for tabletop gamers with instruction, printer reviews, tips & tricks, etc.

 

This will launch initially as digital files that people can purchase to print at home. Some items will be available via a "made to order" service.

The no-longer-cursed episode appears! Though we are working on getting back our usual recording software we had to redo this episode due to a horrible glitch in the replacement software. Trust us, this was a tedious yet kind move. :) We talk news, hobby, games played and then have 3 segments. 1st we look at the release of info on 40K 8th ed with the daily info drops since Saturday and give our (very excited!) thoughts. 
 
Then David Annandale returns to discuss his new epic book Warlord: Fury of the God-Machine. Finally, expert painter Myles of Lil' Legend Studios instructs us on painting all types of Gold. Join us again next week as we look at the new Kharadron Overlords.
 
Enjoy!

We talk recent post-Adepticon news/blues, hobby and some games played. Look for our contribution to the global Heresy campaign soon. The long-awaited Black Library audio interview is here, with producer Matt Renshaw and actor John Banks. This is a hoot and very interesting! It even includes a reading of part of The Long Night by Aaron Dembski-Bowden and discussions of what's to come and what could be. Then Tyler from Scruby & Wells joins for a brief chat about the developing community of Age of Sigmar.

 
Enjoy!

Kenny was a tad tired, less of voice from shouting celebrations at Adepticon and the internet hated us so these edits should fix 97% of all that (I hope). We talk news then really Adepticon--news, notables, links and games played. GW seminars, AoS meetings and more.

 
Interviews are first the fabulous Mr. Eddie Eccles of Warhammer Community (the calmer bloke next to Rob :) ) with tons of great things to say, then Shapeways wins Kenny over, then the awesome retailer Landmine gifts us with his presence before Robert interviews Hyacinth Games. Links below, and as always, ENJOY!

We talk loads of GW news, hobby and games played. TL;dr: Adepticon prep panic final days. Kenny WON his first event, and with old/current pointed Fyreslayers! Robert's Malifaux pales in comparison.
Finally....while many of you make the trip to Chicago for Apdeticon please enjoy this interview with excellent author Peter Fehervari who discusses Genestealer Cults, Fire Caste, Mechanicus stuff and more.
 
Enjoy!!
