So I am back with another couple of reviews. Let me know what you think.
Worlds End Radio
I have only just started listening to this podcast. It’s advertised as a Games Workshop Podcast and it largely still is. For now. Run by Luke and John, these guys provide a really well balanced, professional podcast that evenly discusses gaming. (Except 8th edition Warhammer which Luke hates with a passion) They have primarily been covering GW games, however both are also branching into new arenas namely Warmachine/Hordes, Malifeaux and Spartan Games’ various offerings (Seas of Blood, Firestorm Armada and Dystopian Wars). They have done reviews of all the above and are now discussing news and their experiences with these other game systems alongside their more traditional GW fare. For a general war gaming podcast, I would definitely give these guys a listen. You may not get conversation about specific combos or specific army lists, but they know games, and run a tight ship. 4/5
The Prime Generation
I used to listen to them. Then I didn’t. And now I do again. They have developed and become a bit more polished in the interim. A varied group of guys who seem to know their stuff, they have good discussions on tactics, how to prepare for tournaments, that sort of thing. My only qualifier is that they can sometimes go off on random tangents which can turn you off. However, they have matured since they started, and hopefully will continue to do so. They are a solid listen and I would recommend you give them a go. 3/5
Lost Hemisphere Radio
The casual Warmachine player’s podcast. These guys, Gdaybloke and Menothjohn, are laid back, relaxed and do their own thing. I get the impression that these guys play casually rather than seriously, don’t care whatsoever what the PP forumites say (and good on them!) and do not conform to the ‘normal’ views of models. Where everyone out there apparently hated the Allegiant (of the Order of the Fist) solo, Gdaybloke was running 4 in a list. A refreshing alternative view to the usual blather you see on the forums, and without any hype. They have some good, positive reviews on models and books, and generally do things at their own pace. I would recommend looking at their website too, as they have some really good blog articles, especially Capt Spud’s black hole terrain section. If you are looking for hard-as-nails combos & tactics, this isn’t for you, but if you want a really relaxed conversation with friends, it’s what you want. The score is lower than it should be only because Menothjohn’s quirks set my teeth on edge. But that’s not his fault. 3/5
Thanks for reading.
