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. The team comes together from around the Atlantic Coast to discuss the Massing at Sullust events they attended. Success varies per crew member - unless you measure success on a good time scale! 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!
STAH WAHS! We talk tons of Star Wars of all kinds and even sprinkle in a little TV and Pinewood Derby. Enjoy!
Eric, Luke and Dirty Jon come at you with another episode of News from the Front! In Act I, the guys talk about upcoming FoW events and conventions, but quickly slide into a jumbo AAR that covers FoW, Comicon, X-Wing and more!
For Act III, the guys hit Commonly Overlooked Rules, X-wing painting and more!
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. Lobrad spins the engine discs up from within the depths of the terrifying FSD so the crew can discuss their initial reactions on most, if not all, of the previewed cards and ships. What does Dano love? What does Judson hate? What color are the bounty hunter's eyes and where exactly on the fence is Steven sitting? Find out in this MEGA IFF Episode 11: The Arrival!
In Episode 10, the guys start up with a live report from BAMA before heading back to the bunker to discuss their lists and games. We also take a closer look forces that fought in The Battle Of The Bulge and talk about the future of Bolt Action .Net
The boys talk about good movies, our favorite bad movies, TV shows, even more Star Wars, Artemis Star Trek Continues and more!
For Act III, the guys wander all over the place and talk about all (most?) of the stuff they promised to cover in this act. Steven talks in detail about the Heroes of the Aturi Cluster X-Wing Campaign.
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.
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!
Tristan, Garratt and Rob hit the road to Canberra for Wintercon. We cover our respective lists, some rules crunch and also manage to catch up with our good friends Patch, Anf and Bryan!!"
In this "IFF Anthologies" episode, Dano, Steve, and Eric light some scented candles, and climb into the tub to talk about lists. Eric and Steve are gearing up for a tournament, and wanted to record the process of working through what to run! In order to get properly hyped for this episode, please make sure to watch "I'm Han Solo": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lg_FoEy8T_A
n this very NSFW episode, the guys return from their wasteland adventures and get back behind the microphone!
In Act I, we delve into some GenCon news about X-Wing, cover off a Kickstarter that “excites” the Bludgelord, and generally lose our train of thought.
In Act II, we remember tales from the Ranui Wasteland as our TNT campaign kicked off last week at TCOW. Then we dive into some really good listener’s questions.
In Act III, the dreaded topic of gamer burnout rears it’s ugly head. But have no fear, the guys have some survival tips on how to make it through!
In this special Wintercon episode of the GAP Brad, Anf and Patch get down with some crunchy chat about lists, hobby in general and of course the amazing rollercoaster that was the grudge match between Tristan and Patch. Tristan himself and Garratt come on as well and give a game by game breakdown of the amazing event that was Wintercon 2015.
Speakeasy: July brings Judson to the table with Dano, Anf from Everywhere, and Mark Dawg to talk a bit about Bolt Action. Topics include Anf's big trip to the Pacific Northwest in order to square off against Mark and friends, and recent Bolt Action developments - or perhaps more appropriately a lack thereof.
We join Ben and Lachlan for a review of the ETC lists and look forward to some upcoming events.
In Episode IX of Intensify Forward Firepower: Walkin' In Bespin, Skyshuffler, Easy, Dano and Drunk Tarkin have a long talk about everything that went on at GenCon. For starters, Steve gives a review of everything GenCon related and breaks the news about what was revealed in the Fantasy Flight Games In-Flight Review. Afterwards, the crew of the flesh star destroyer review the big tournament - including some tournament list chat - before interviewing the tournament winner. Before the close, thoughts on the future of Armada are mentioned, as well as a recent after action review, are thrown around. Besides all that, the big contest continues!
We get a little potty-mouth on this episode, so be warned. The guys talk about the summer movies they have seen and drift a bit before digging in to a discussion of casual slow play at tournaments
In Act I, Luke, Eric and Jon cover the normal AAR and talk about what is coming up for the WWPD Crew. As usual, we drift a bit. In Act II, Jon does a solo Gencon AAR for the whole act - we had a great time! The guys wrap up the 'cast in Act III with a talk about Cold War Gone Hot, two book reviews and talk about Guns of August.
The guys are back after a super TCOW weekend. In this episode, we’ve got some surprises and some heavy topics lined up for you!
In Act I, we delve as deep as possible in a pre-GenCon world of wargaming news.
In Act II, we talk about the cosmopolitan collection of gaming systems played at last week’s club, and cover lots of excellent questions from our listeners.
In Act III … THAT kickstarter campaign… and what having a community means to us.
