BDP 97 – The WFB Masters Live Draw

WFB Masters

Happy New Year! We return for the first show in 2013 with a LIVE! Broadcast to do the UK WFB Masters 1st Round Draw.  Mark and Gareth also celebrate their 1st year anniversary as Co-Hosts.  

Fortnight In Fantasy

Its 3 weeks since our last show and in that time we have had a nice Christmas break.  We talk about the hobby related Christmas gifts we were given and also the gaming and painting we did during the holidays.
I have made a start on my Chaos Dwarf Bull Centaurs but they are still in progress at the moment.
Mark finished painting his skaven army and revisited his Orc and Goblin army to make some more progress on them.
Gareth was given a Magic the Gathering started set for christmas and also a Banshee for his Vampire Counts army.  Mark and Gareth has also been playing a lot of warhammer and even managed to squeeze in a one day tournament.  They went down to Milton Keynes for the End Of Times event run by Mark Borland.

The 2012 WFB Masters 1st Round Draw

We draw the first round of the Masters live on the show. Gareth pulls names out of his dog bowl (Don’t ask because I really don’t know!!) while I run down each players achievements from the year and Mark tell us about their lists.
So the draw for the 1st round is
  • Will vs Raf
  • Tom vs Al
  • Ben vs Nick Pym
  • Dan vs Keith
  • Mikey vs Hristo
  • Jack vs Chris Legg
  • Mark vs Matty
  • Andy Vs Lorenzo
We make some predictions on the games and discuss how the armies pair up.
For more information about the lists you can read The 2012 WFB Masters Lists and also check out the rules pack.

BDD 150 – WFB Masters News and Hobbit Review

Masters News and Hobbit Review

Today I announce the UK WFB Masters Event and review the Hobbit Movie that I went to see last night.

UK WFB Masters

Starting with the UK WFB Masters.  The event is going to be held at the Maunsfeld Gaming Centre (previously Maelstrom Games) on the 12th and 13th of January.  It will be a 6 game event and the comp will be the Swedish Comp system that was used at the recent Bjorn Supremacy Tournament.

There will be a few amendments made to that rules pack to bring it up to date and also to alter the scoring system slightly.

Full details will be published over the weekend.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Last night I went to see the Hobbit movie and I give my thoughts about it on the show.  This is fair warning that there will be Hobbit Storyline spoilers, but I do not talk about the movie spoilers.  If you have never read the book it’s probably best that you do not listen, or even if you have read the book and don’t know where the movie ends you might also want to give it a miss too.
