LIVE FROM HISTORICON 2011

FIRST: We always own up to errors. We have 2 corrections- #1 The Bismarck did not sink the Prince of Wales. It only damaged her. Blame Pete, he wrote the Historical Trivia (and did a fine job!). #2 The Monte Cassino Monastary was not painted by MG-42 proper, but rather by Jim Hofer- and a fine job he did!

SECOND: A deep thanks to my crew. Sean truly went above and beyond and was the boots on the ground for the entire convention. He organized the podcast setup, organized everything, and generally "got shit done" -per his committee title. He also had the distinct honor of sharing the Jungle Room with me. To quote Sherlock Holmes, "I would be lost without my Boswell". Secondly, huge thanks to Luke- we can all agree he is an amazing assett to the 'cast, and went above and beyond with preparation work. He is the Abbot to my Costello. Or is it the other way around? Thirdly, huge thanks to Pete! He helped us get everything set up, got the historical trivia set up, and was generally there for us when we needed him. He was also the bringer of beer, and that was hugely important. Thanks also to Matt Lehman- our first "Cadet" (Sorry Matt- we're working on the name… we're trying to assemble an army!) for his help. WWPD works like a well oiled machine, and it truly makes me proud that our team is composed of such fine gents.

THIRD: A huge thank you to all of the vendors, businesses, and interviewees. Donated prize support made up a huge chunk of our trivia prizes, and all 3 of the very awesome prizes were donated very very generously by MG42 Painting, Battlefront, and Jim Hofer. We hope the generosity of these guys and others (Falcon Figures, and Gamecraft Miniatures) encourages you to give these guys the business they deserve- we know you won't be disappointed!

LASTLY: But certainly not least importantly- thank you to everyone who showed up! Again, it's such an affirmation to have people show up, and most importantly- have fun! We are always working to improve, and we already have some big ideas to shake up the format and up the level of audience participation. It's all about you guys- without you we're just recording in the studio, and we need to really differentiate that! Again, thanks to everyone who showed up- too many names to list here but you know who you are!

Apologies again for the A/C unit. The scotch started getting me by the time "After Hours" was recorded. That always means it's a great episode! Luke- feel better! Also- Dave Taylor DOES head up the Heroes of Armageddon site, I messed that up. Sorry!
May 25, 2011

After recording episode 20, the guys have more independent team discussion- we could fill volumes with this! We then talk a bit about our upcoming tournament (Sorry- we forgot the mics were on, we plan for a few minutes), the rapture, and general goofery!

"Live From... the car?"

Steven and Sean record in the car to and from the Showcase Showdown in Media PA. This episode is primarily about their experience at this tournament, and is fairly unstructured. There is a brief review of the board game Wrath of Ashardalon, though a full review will be forthcoming. Be warned: the audio quality is not up to our usual standard, and the occasional foul language was loosed upon the world.

"LIVE from Cold Wars!"

The gang podcasts with a live studio audience, a cooler of beer, and a slew of special guests! We talk to the I-95 guys, Bill Wilcox, Bob Giglio of HMGS, Joe Krone of Battlefront Miniatures, Rifleman Harris, and the rest of the gang! This recording gets plenty rowdy, plenty ranty, and plenty silly! Steven has just a little too much to drink, and hilarity ensues- listen for the Choo Choo noises! The gang had an absolutely amazing time, and their enthusiasm for Cold Wars shows through.

EDITOR'S NOTES:
Great to be back in the saddle! I know my coverage of the Herman G. lists was light and I apologize for my lack of preparation- I blame my viscious sinus infection! Please do yourself a favor and check out those plastic T-34s by PSC. We hope to see you at cold Wars!

EDITOR'S NOTES
  • Pardon our incorrect handling of tank riders- we are all soviet n00bs. Tank Riders DO count FOR motivation but do NOT count against
  • As always- pardon our horrible pronunciations. That's how we roll
  • Don't forget about our contest!
