CC 181 - Reveal of the Honor Guard of the Green Lady Formation

Tonight we have an extra special, jam packed episode.  We're "Hindered" once again by Krys Koches and Jimmy Swallows as they share their "brand" of Power Gaming Kings of War.  Then we're joined by Devlin Smith to reveal and break down the Honor Guard of the Green Lady Formation from the upcoming Edge of the Abyss campaign supplement from Mantic Games.  And that's not all, we've also packed in a couple of surprises along the way that are sure to put a smile on your face.  We hope you enjoy this break from the norm and we'll be back to our regular broadcast schedule Sunday with our Origins coverage episode!

COUNTER CHARGE 180 - List Builder Studio with Dan Cammack

CC 180 - List Builder Studio with Dan Cammack

Tonight we sit down with a relatively new player to the Kings of War scene, Dan Cammack.  However, that's not to say that Dan doesn't have much to say!  Dan's has had a long track record with that other game system, winning the prestigious Hillbilly WAY back in 2007.  So he's got great gaming credentials and we are excited to see him apply it to Kings of War!

 

COUNTER CHARGE 179 - List Builder Studio with Kris Kapsner

CC 179 - List Builder Studio with Kris Kapsner

Fresh off Kris's big win at the Bugeater GT we sit down with Kris in the List Builder Studio.  We tackle his general list building principles, army design philosophy and how it's all driven by his insatiable quest for the hobby!  We then take a deep dive into his winning Bugeater list and tear it apart unit by unit.  Along the way we also touch on what makes the Herd work in Kris's capable hands.  This is a CAN'T MISS episode.  

 

COUNTER CHARGE 178 - LIST BUILDER STUDIO WITH ALEX CHAVES

CC 178 - List Builder Studio with Alex Chaves

In the episode of Counter Charge Podcast we premier a new segment to the show!  The List Builder's Studio! 

Each episode/segment will have a general who plays a specific army.  We will talk about the guest general's list building philosophies and also look more closely at a recent list they are playing with a specific army.  This will provide interesting content about list building with some army specific reviews.  Also, it will be another venue to bring people in from different groups within the community.  We will be having a variety of types of generals, i.e. super competitive list builders along with more hobby orientated builders in order to provide a nice variety of content.

In this premier episode Rob catches up with Andrew Summers and Steve Malone at T.N.T. to have a deep discussion into their fundamentals of list design and army creation.  Along the way we touch on hobby, tactics and a complete breakdown of their current lists.  So pull up a chair with your favorite drink in hand and relax as this will surely become a favorite in the community.
