Fun cast. I don't really remember the Merc forum being as crazy as you described. I just found it more along the lines of "You knew you were into a crap faction when you started so don't whine".

Liked the Kraye list. Will have to give it a try. Waited so long for him to be good.

The WTC is this weekend!  Get you and your friends ready to gather around the screen (perhaps playing some games too?) and watch all the action.  Here's how:

For stats and immediate result updates, visit www.wmh-wtc.com

We will have 2 live streams this year.  The primary stream is twitch.tv/page5de
This stream will have multiple cameras on games within a team matchup with commentary from Page5de and the Muse on Mini's team.
The secondary stream is on twitch.tv/warroompl
This stream will cover only 1 game (although all 5 will be recorded for posting later) and includes commentary from a crack French/English team of commentators (one of which is part of the Murder of Crows podcast).
Here's the schedule (all times Central European Time).  Only undefeated teams will be streamed:

Friday 21:00:  Grudge matches (if equipment is setup and working properly).  Choices include USA v Canada, Sweden v Finland, England v Australia/New Zealand (the Ashes), France v Italy.

Saturday - 23.09.17
09:15 - Round 1 (featuring Far East/Australian matchups)
14:00 - Round 2 (featuring European matchups)
16:45 - Round 3 (featuring North American matchups)

Sunday - 24.09.17
9:00 - Round 4 (featuring Far East/Australian matchups, if undefeated)

Hey Scott. We have painting hangouts on Google all the time. If you look for the facebook group Hobby Hangout. Some amazing artists host different nights and the hangouts are always open to anyone that wants to join. You can even set up your own and post links (and it's free).

Warmachine and Hordes General / Muse on Painting?

Hey All!

I know recently i have gotten so bogged down in just getting other stuff done, and feeding different addictions (Destiny2) that i havent spent as much time behind my air/paint brush as i should be doing, and WMW is rapidly getting here.

So.....

What are you thoughts if i set up a painting time, and people could just joining and chatting with me and whomever else *coughnigelcough* is in at the time and getting some work done.  I know i could use the motivator, and i would love to meet so many others in the hobby, and this seems like a great way to do it!

Also, i do know there are painting groups who do have events, and im totally on board with that, but i would like to try something a little more "muse centric" if there is sufficient interest.

The structure i have in mind is a set time once per week. Maybe like 7pm or so on a Sunday, or Tuesday or whatever day seems to work best.  after that, i don't have a lot of structure in mind other than show up, talk, chat, and paint.  my only request is that we keep it clean and light hearted. Id rather everyone enter the group event, and leave it, as friends :)

So, give me your thoughts!  Im open to any/all suggestions...

Re: the faction groups, I'm fairly certain you could mail the trollbloods group a solid gold mountain king, and they'd bitch that I didn't spring for next day shipping.

Also, I do miss "Magnus1's Freebooter is literally Molik Karn"

I was thinking more along the lines of Scott as Dean Martin to Josh's Jerry Lewis.

This was in interesting discussion on a selection of lists from the WTC teams.

My one comment would be to work on volume levels.  Banky had a lot of good information, but was unfortunately a bit quiet, which meant that I turned by headphones up to max volume to hear him well.  This meant that the frequent laughter by the other hosts when Banky made a funny comment, was ear splitting and actually quite painful.

Other than that I did enjoy the podcast and will continue listening.

A classic example would be Margaret Dumont

IMO, I don't think you fill that particular role.

A straight man is a comedy term denoting the guy who does not laugh at the jokes or antics of the funny man.  or someone who takes what is said in a "straight forward" manner and not thinking what is said is a joke

A few thoughts.

1. I love the renewed enthusiasm on the cast. The change in cast members has added to my excitement. Cast changes can feel strained at times, ya'll have done a fantastic job with the transition.

2. Scott is the perfect straight man for ya'll.

3. Old witch slam poetry is an absolutely terrible idea, on par with self flagellation and auto-erotic asphyxiation. PLEASE DON"T!!!

Im confused, and although I'm a bit scared to ask, what is a "Straight Man" (other than the obvious social reference to sexual preference).

And, to be fair, The cast change by adding Brent and I was only made easy, and the transition was easy, because Nigel, Keith, John, and Josh are such great folks to hang out and play games with.  If they weren't super cool, things would get awkward pretty quickly.  :)
