2012 Hobby Review

Episode 96 – 2012 Hobby Review

Episode 96 is the last one of the year and we will be doing our 2012 Hobby Review. Its a bumper episode at nearly 3 hours long.  In Fortnight in Fantasy we talk about the Winter Incursion and Bjorn Supremacy events, what we have been up to in the hobby and all the other fun stuff that you can usually expect from the Bad Dice crew.


At the start of the show we mention that Bad Dice has now surpassed Podhammer as the longest running Warhammer Podcast (At least in terms of episode numbers, and not counting the Daily Show) Podhammer started back in August 2007 and their last episode was released in October 2011 releasing 95 episodes during that time.

Fortnight In Fantasy

In episode 95, Gareth and Mark said they were heading off to Stockport to take part in a tournament with a new style of comp system in place.  In this episode they report back on how it went, and have an in depth look at the workings of the Swedish Comp system.  Gareth also wrote a list to suit the system and talks about how he found it.

The 3 of us all went to the Winter Incursion event.  Ben used Skaven for the first time and has recorded a Snake Eyes episode to talk about his games.  Mark and Gareth report on how the weekend went for them.

In other hobby related activities Gareth has been trying out Magic The Gathering for the first time.
