It’s the holiday season and the guys are back for a little gift giving, investigative reporting and weather forecasting (it’s frosty out there!). We then ready our wishlists for Wargames Santa and make bold promises that we’re most likely not going to deliver. Happy holidays to all our listeners and we’ll see you all in the New Year!

 

In Act I, we talk YouTube, Kickstarters, do a mild unboxing live, and get all the small news sorted for you.

 

In Act II, we investigate the frozen world of Frostgrave and write our wishlists for Warmanes Santa.


In Act III, we look ahead to 2016 and list our our personal resolutions for the New Year and outline some resolutions about Behind Enemy Lines. We’ve also got some big news, so prepare yourself for some cutting edge reporting coming in January!

About the cast

Join the Baconburgers on our maiden voyage as we sail into the storm that is Tristan's new crush, namely the Finns, rules crunch and we peek behind the curtain that is warplanes. Welcome to the Baconburgers!!

Greg and Damian struggle against Mike and Dan in a herculean effort to steer the conversation away from Fallout long enough to discuss all of the great things happening in the wide world of wargaming. May contain traces of Fallout.... #Fallout4 #NotReally

In Act I, we’ve got some news from across the World of Wargaming, and have a look at some promising kickstarter campaigns.

In Act II, we talk about out TCOW games, Rust in the City’s Firestorm Caen campaign, and surviving the TNT wasteland. 

In Act III, we get up to our usual shenannegans talking about the return of Games Workshop’s specialist games and discuss the fickle nature of being rather too impatient for new games to arrive on our tables.

Nov 16, 2015

The full crew is back for another podcast! We talk about new releases and interesting kickstarters to watch, cover FlamesCon event news, community goings-ons, and talk a little controversy about tournaments and dealing with a particular type of problem person in some wargames communities...

In Act I, we flush out some good intel about the world of wargames, including news bits from across the interwebs.

In Act II, we cover Bludgefest II and FlamesCon 2015. 

In Act III, we talk about tournaments, meta games, and septic pillars (gross).

Intensify Forward Firepower Episode 14: Objective Overload begins with a quick update on what's been happening with Skyshuffler, Easy, Drunk Tarkin, and Dano before diving into a gigantic topic. Specifically, the crew of the Flesh Star Destroyer covers everything time allows for regarding objectives; even speculating on how some of them will change in the Wave 2, 400-point environment. Have a listen, and if you happen to see Lobrad anywhere, let him know there was a bit of blaster fire coming from the conference room last night!

The Fleshing at Sullust is finally brought to you through the engineering prowess of Lobrad with a little comlink help from Drunk Tarkin, Rulesbot Dano, Steven Skyshuffler, and the enigmatic, mysterious, grey (or purple) eyed bounty hunter named Easy.

Tune in to find out how the fleet engagements went and any takeaways the Intensify Forward Firepower podcast left with.

The Lost Episode… This Behind Enemy Lines episode was literally lost when Mike moved house. It was uncovered in an unmarked box guarded by top men in a warehouse located somewhere in a remote army base. We cannot be held responsible for the (dated) content within! Listen at your own peril!

Oct 4, 2015

In this eleventh installment of Intensify Forward Firepower Easy, Steve, Dan, and an intoxicated Moff preview all the new ships set to arrive soon with the long awaited second wave for FFG's Armada.

Sep 1, 2015

The guys return for an epic podcast. We cover news, community goings-ons, and try our hand at collective game design.... This episode is rather long, so it might be best consumed over the course of several listening sessions!


In Act I, we dig up some good intel about the world of wargames, including news bits from Warmachine/Hordes, X-Wing, to Warhammer, and beyond.


In Act II, we cover off our usual TCOW AAR and then give some incoherent answers to our really patient listener’s questions. 

 

In Act III, some thing amazing may or may not have happened… (but probably not).

Intensify Forward Firepower Episode 10: A New Host smashes through your shielding and launches a boarding party as special guest Michael Gernes (the producer of Star Wars Armada at FFG) heads to the bridge of the Flesh Star Destroyer. Joining him there are, as always Drunk Tarkin, Dano, Easy, and Steve Skyshuffler - not that he can pronounce it. In Episode 10, the guys chat with Michael on the design process behind Armada before getting him in front of the interrogation droid in an attempt to extract information on future Armada releases. The episode is rounded out when Michael joins the crew to talk about Easy's squadron-led victory, DT's hard-learned lessons, and Skyshuffler's use of Garm's Gups.

Aug 25, 2015

The sub-episodes continue as the crew of the FSD bring you Intensify Forward Firepower Episode 9.6: The Tub Continued! This show continues where the last one ended, with Drunk Tarkin's return and a session detailing the latest tournament list. Unbeknownst to the boys at the time, Steve would ultimately play the list in a tournament before DT, so the "Garm's Gups" list devised in this episode truly was a group effort!
