WWPD Live From Cold Wars '11






"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.

NOTE: This episode may not be appropriate for children, puritans, or those who hate fun.

EDITOR'S NOTES:
If my drunken rants didn't convey this already- I had an absolutely amazing time. This was our first attempt at "live" podcasting, and we hope everyone had as good of a time as we did! Lessons for next time: Bring more beer (drink less of it), keep up the awesome prize support, have fun

Yeah was awesome to meet and see the WWPD crew live(drunk) and recording. Truely are some great guys who love the hobby. Was truely a great Cold Wars experience.

Travis.

Dirty Jon said...

Thanks again to you guys for coming out - we had a great time and will add by subtraction: Less drink for Steve-O and Dirty Jon.

pudson said...

@Dirty Jon: Bah. I don't think anyone's consuming this product mistaking it for some sort of commercialized corporate shill-fest. The sophisticated and refined consumers of WWPD have come to expect nothing less than the kind of podcast you delievered once again. Thanks to all involved at the dubdubpeedee!

That being said, all the trivia contest did for me was make me jealous I wasn't there to get in line for the beer and toy handouts!

Neal Smith said...

To throw in the obligatory Monty Python reference... "Well, there is one." :)

I dl'd this last night and I think I'll try to listen to it tonight... Would this go well with doing my taxes or should I paint? :)

Dirty Jon said...

@Pudson: Thanks! Beer, silliness and occasional insights could be considered our WWPD corporate 'Brand'.

@Neal: Painting, not taxes. Steve-O and I are pretty ....say, animated. =)

Pete said...

to quote Jon, : "WRRRRRONG!!"

shadowking said...

hiya loved the cast what army the axis one di the top FOW say and what list /book are thye in?

Anatoli said...

Loved the episode guys, lots of fun and interesting stuff as always.

Anatoli said...

And get that Polish armored train already :D !

Luke said...

Joe Krone actually gave me one on Sunday for review. Brian is picking it up today and hopefully in the not too distant future we will have pics and a review for everyone.

MG-42 Painting said...

Thanks for a fun time, the free beer and the plug on the podcast. Hope I can do some better prize support next time.

Luke said...

You can give me personal prize support whenever you want

pachongo3000 said...

Thanks to everyone, who came out! Thanks to those listening. Special thanks to all those who came up ad talked to me about how much they like the cast. It was nice being on the mic again. It makes me regret getting fired. Alas, that is life. Thanks everyone.

Sean

Neal Smith said...

Finished listening to this a little while ago... Finished my taxes too! :)

Awesome stuff. Rifleman Harris was a real treat! I got started with Chess and Risk myself!

Isn't Lydia really the "first woman of WWPD"? :)

I am shamed to admit I didn't get the 116th Regt's motto... Ugh! I did pretty well on most everything else and for some reason the Monty Python theme popped into my head for your theme song and I couldn't make it go away! :)

Really great stuff guys!

Andy said...

I knew it! I knew you guys forced Sean off the podcast!!

Actually, it was good to hear him return and prove that everybody was still friendly!

DL said...

i love how steve keeps saying "were almost out of beer?" with an increasing slur.

that show was piss-funny.

pachongo3000 said...

@ MG42- Guys , Thanks for coming and hanging! It was cool having you guys there. No problem about the plug. The way I see plugs is, if you are cool guys and have a service/product I am not ashamed of, then people need to know. Your painting looked great! Thanks for throwing into the prize table and the tank rides for Joe.

@ Andy- Andy! Good to hear from you brother. I missed seeing you guys, at the con! Throw me an e-mail. It would be good to catch up.

Sean

Duncan said...

That was a very fun episode!

Lee said...

great show,but by the end was like listening to a hobo sitting on a park bench.lol

indierockclimber said...

Hahaha, just a couplenof hobos fighting over a bean.

indierockclimber said...

Ps that typo isnt due to drunkenness. Im on my iphone :)

Luke said...

It was actually Dirty Jon. He invited a bunch of his homeless friends to help fill the room and they started fighting over who got to take the aluminum cans for the recycling money.

It was a very very good time. Historicon is going to be bigger and better. Start making your plans now.

Andy said...

I will see you there. Will you be bringing bocage? I might go for another 10 feet.

Pete said...

I need to really kidnap Luke and Jon, and tie them to a railing in my basement and force them to make bocage for me.

It should be easy to lure them into my van, just tell them I have beer.

Chris said...

You guys forgot to plug Sara's knitting blog in the links. I wanted to tell my wife about it... honest!

Luke said...

@Andy/Pete
I just switched the bocage machine back on. I am in slow mode though. Not going to have a last minute terrain frenzy before I go to Cold Wars.

@Chris
You never responded to my email...

indierockclimber said...

Sorry Chris! Will plug next episode :)

Secret Squirrel said...

Ha ha ha ha bitches I don't just have one armored train, I have three armored trains.

Pictures of the process from start to finish will be up with in the next few days.

I hope you guys will enjoy.

jmezz382 said...

@MG42 ... I will make those tank riders the pride of the Motherland .... thanks !!

Dirty Jon said...

@B-Rock: Did you get the parts fixes you needed for the train?

Anatoli said...

@ Secret Squirrel, do the trains come with the "tank release" wagons that would transport TKS tankettes and the FT-17 tank?

The problem would also be the railroad itself, does the box contain anything of that sort is the train adapted to fit with most regular brands of model train railroads?

Having read the rules for the train it seems pretty cool - would love to read a battle report involving the train to hear some thoughts about its performance as I reckon not many people will actually be able to afford that box....

Luke said...

The train is bad ass, but as I recall it is just the four cars. I would not be surprised to see a release down the road of rail car variants.

If I could get someone to paint Poles on the super cheap I would buy them and play them for the hell of it. I really like the idea of using Cav even though it will probably end up sucking.

Secret Squirrel said...

No tracks in the box. I still have not confirmed the track scale, I have heard both S and TT.

I am sure the tank release wagons will come along in the future as an add-on.

Depending on the scale you could also do come conversions using a flat bed car in the appropriate scale, whatever that is.

Luke said...

Joe Krone did say that the tracks were going to be released seperately and I am thinking he said some time in the summer, but I can not remember the release date for sure.

It is "S" scale

Neal Smith said...

I could have sworn Phil said it was TT scale in their podcast, but I haven't been paying that close attention. :)

I do know that the train was modeled after a real train and that's why it has the car makeup that it has now. I'm suspecting more car variants are in the works.

Secret Squirrel said...

All I can say is that if it is in fact TT scale, then I am glad I am just painting these and not having to find track.

TT scale is damn near impossible to find easily in the USA. I am making some call to a few local model train stores today, but the big box retailers like Hobbytown USA won't have TT.

Secret Squirrel said...

As of right now it is either TT or S scale. Neither the box nor the instruction sheet mentions the track. Well the box does state track (of undisclosed scale) not included.

I sent off a PM to Even so hopefully I will have some news before the first part of the painting review pops up on the blog.

MG-42 Painting said...

I doubt that the train and/or track would be S scale, as that is 1/64 scale. TT scale is 1/100 and yes, damn near impossible to find in the USA.

If anyone is interested, HO scale is 1/87 and the closest to FoW scale. Easily available, cheap and makes a great scenery addition to any tabletop.

Pete said...

It's not impossible - you just have to know where to look!

This is a really good place out in New Jersey. Good prices and reliable.

Luke said...

I just hope you called him Evan and not Even :)

Can't wait to see the finished result.

Secret Squirrel said...

I boiled my first Armored Train last night. The bottom section of the Locomotive was warped, badly. Tried to heat it with a hair dryer = fail. Got some water boiled up dropped it in while laughing as only a mad scientist could do. Pulled it out after a few minutes with some tongs and got it on the level, then rinsed in cold water. Worked like a champ. Train 2 had no fit issues. Train 3 is still in the box for the photo shoot tonight.

@Luke Used the correct spelling in the pm, still haven't heard back...

Luke said...

Brian

Again what a great idea to boil the trains. I would never have thought of that.

Anatoli said...

Goddamn, I would probably start to cry if I opened a box and saw that such an expensive model was warped badly. I too would never have thought about the boiling water - though I have read about this method from a hobby book where it was mentioned that dipping resin parts in hot water would make them soft and flexible. It was mainly intended for small objects such as hands for better grip on weapons etc.

Really looking forward to the pictures of the train(s) !

indierockclimber said...

Have you ever ordered from Forge World? :P I wasn't shocked at all- large resin pieces often are warped a little. The ol' boiling water/blow dryer trick is as old as the hills!

I can't wait to see what Brian does with these trains!

Joyous_Oblivion said...

Just curious...but why did you get three trains?

This is of course excluding the argument that 3 trains is always better than one :)

Luke said...

We recieved one from BF. Brian is painting two on comission for someone else.

Joyous_Oblivion said...

I get it :)

Looking forward to hearing all about it whenever the next episode goes up!

Luke said...

The train review will probably come on episode 16. Brian has told us that he will probably finish it sometime next week.

Secret Squirrel said...

Locomotives and Art. Cars were assembled last night. Pictures were taken. It is moving right along.

Yeah Steve shot me a link from the forge world forums about fixing resin parts.

Lamenter40K said...

Hey guys good episode. You had me cracking up with all the beer drinking you did.

I hope you guys do a review of the Sharpe movies on the podcast. I started reading the books a long time ago and didn't realize they'd made it into movies (they aired on BBC so most Americans aren't aware of it I think). The upside is that Netflix has them on DVD so you can watch them all cheap. You should read the first book in the series too, in my opinion the books are even better than the show (which I like in case I didn't make that clear).

indierockclimber said...

Lamenter- I have to admit Napoleonics aren't high on my area of interests, BUT I'll give the Sharpe series a shot on Netflix and get back to you!

Lamenter40K said...

Yeah I understand, it's not really my cup of tea to be honest but I came across it after devouring the Master and Commander book series by Patrick O'Brien. I loved those so much that I looked around for something similar and found Sharpe. I've read about the first 4-5 of I don't know how many in the series and they were pretty good. The TV show/movies are worth checking out - just don't expect Hollywood production.
