    01/03/2021 Duración: 02h28min

    Rumors abound of the yearly errata still happening in 2021, so we took it up ourselves to do the work for Wyrd and fix all of the problem models in the game. Join Doug as he complains about summoning and Roman, Nate, Jeff, and Eli as they tell him to calm down. We cover all 8 factions and the rulebook and decide on what needs nerfed, what needs buffed, and what needs to be punted into the sun.   Please donate to our Patreon!  JOIN OUR DISCORD

  • Friday Night Faux-Down - 2/13/21 - Third Storey Combat

    14/02/2021 Duración: 01h06min

    We got'em folks! Craig Floors fell for the ol' 'Trail of Almond Joys' trick and got himself locked in Roman's basement. While we wait for the ransom money, we decided to record a Friday Night Faux-Down! Sadly, we lost about 30 minutes of audio, but because of this we got him to promise to record ANOTHER episode. As usual, we have a blast. Enjoy! Topics: 1. What RPG would you most like to run for your fellow podcasters in this episode? 2. What's your OTP? If you've answered this before, what would be your secondary couple? 3. What is the needlessly divisive food choice in Malifaux a la “pineapple on pizza” and what is the “correct answer”? 4. You grow so famous from podcasting, Hollywood offers to let you make a low-budget Malifaux movie that’s really just a ripoff of a different terrible franchise. What low budget Malifaux theme movie rip off remake do you make? What’s your egotistical cameo in said movie? 5. Wyrd names a mildly interesting Malifaux landmark after you of your own design. What is it? 6. A ch

    So now we have an 8th faction, but that faction is missing a few dozen models to bring them up to the same model count as its 7 siblings.

  • Steam Powered Scoundrels Episode 27 - Haze the New Guys

    11/12/2020 Duración: 02h52min

    Doug has earned his freedom after successfully challenging Roman to what he calls 'Baby Oil Thunderdome', just in time to celebrate the introduction of our new meta overlords, the Explorers Society! We thought we'd do another 'public service' to the community. Now, the other podcasts probably have the 'how to play Explorers' covered, so we thought we'd jump the gun and go right into 'ow to BEAT the Explorers. We got some very smart individuals on with deep insight into the various new masters and their playstyle. Join Roman, Rob, Chase, John, and hanger-on Doug as we teach you how to fight the Teal Terrors. Please donate to our Patreon!  JOIN OUR DISCORD
