LHR 2011 Jinglesode

Merry Happy Ho Ho, Losties! After another year of Lost niftiness, your charming and dashing hosts decided to toss together a little listening pleasure for you... or torture depending on your perspective. It's half an hour or so of shout-outs, nods, and some festive tunes, with some vague references to our beloved Warmachine and Hordes tossed in. Download the episode on iTunes or by clicking the linky (Linky!) but above all, have a fantastic Christmas, Hannukah, Festivus, Solstice, Noodly appendage thingie, or whatever it is that you choose to celebrate.

LHRep45: Templecon 2012

As we move into the last few days before Christmas, right before the kids are all out of school to bug their parents for the holidays, snow for those up North and of course, balmy summer days for those Down Under, I'm reminded of one thing... Templecon's just around the corner! Time to stop being all wishy-washy with faction preferences, time to lock in lists and cram in as much practice as you can before the Lost crew invade our adopted "home" convention.

For this episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio, our intrepid hosts brave the fury of the man known only as Hacksaw* to get the skinny on the tournament formats at Templecon, a rundown of what sort of goodies await those who participate, and to generally natter with one of the driving forces behind Steamroller 2012. Join us for the natterings by tracking us down on iTunes (leave us a review!) or clicking the linky: LINKY!

*Yes, we know he's also known as Andrew in some circles, Muffincakes in others, but to us he's just Hacksaw

LHRep44: Swan Song

We've had three back-to-back episodes talking about Hordes, time to bring a little robot action back, donchathink? Who can guess just how much Northblade had to bribe Gdaybloke to let him do a whole episode about Cygnar... Yup, it's an all blue, all electric, all swan episode as Gdaybloke tries to restrain his urges to wrack both his co-host and their guest for being filthy Morrowans. All in all, I think he behaved pretty well... but we'll see what ended up in the Easter Eggs.

LHRep43: Domination Pt3 and NQ39

It's time to finish up our waltz through Domination, and we saved the Minions to chat with a guest who actually plays a Blindwater Congregation... and he just happens to be the Editor in Chief of No Quarter magazine as well, so we thought we'd drag him through the latest release of our favourite periodical.

Want to know who's really responsible for what happened to Kromac's axe? Find out by downloading the episode on iTunes, or right here: Linky!

Fair warning: Our guest's connection to the interwebs caused a couple of audio gremlins from his end... personally, we blame too much Starbucks. Darn you, Seattle!

LHRep42: Domination pt2

It's time, ladies and gentlelost, to once more don your headphones - the Lost Hemisphere boys are back to complete their initial overview of Privateer Press' newest expansion, Hordes: Domination. This time, Skorne and Legion are on the table as Gdaybloke and Northblade make their guest justify all those darn spikey bits. Did I say guest? I meant guests - plural - as we sneak in a bonus pal to chat with after the break.

Will Northblade keep his pants on? Can Gdaybloke stay awake? Will either guest admit to secretly enjoying painting Cataphract flags? Download on iTunes or click the link to find out - LINK!

LHRep41: Domination pt1

Somewhere deep in the wilds of Quebec, Northblade runs free... leaving Gdaybloke to shanghai Boots as  his co-host in Lost Hemisphere's first look at Hordes: Domination. Spending some time with the Circle Orboros and the Trollbloods, is it any wonder that after all was said and done they just wanted to tear down civilisation? Though that could have been sleep deprivation speaking...

Lend us your ears for a couple of hours as we take a trundle through some choice entries in the newest expansion for Privateer Press' Hordes tabletop miniatures game, Domination! Download the episode on iTunes,or via this nice little like over here... LINK!

LHRep40: All Hemisphere's Eve

It was a dark and stormy night, and all across the Hemisphere, Losties were gathered with their families behind shuttered windows and bolted doors, hoping to keep out the terrible, horrible, and downright unpleasant things that were lurking in the darkness... ominous footsteps through the puddles, the pitter-patter of raindrops falling on corroded carapaces, and high keening of Kenny G.... yep, it was just that scary.

Good thing everyone had a festive episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio to listen to! Join Gdaybloke, Northblade, and their guest as the Nightmare Empire dominates the discussion. Pick up the episode on iTunes, or by clicking the link... SPOOKY LINK!

LHRepNorb: The Norbisode

Some podcasts like to use a numerical system to order their episodes. Well, we here at Lost Hemisphere Radio found ourselves having a nice big discussion about Unbound with the King of All Media, Norbert Brunhuber, and it occured to us - why should we be bound by such petty things as numbers? And why *wouldn't* Norbert be holding a fish??

Ladies and Gentelelost, welcome to Episode Norb of Lost Hemisphere Radio, wherein we talk Foodmachine, Unbound formations, and a bunch of other malarkey. Won't you be our neighbor?

LHRep38: BCB and T'Con'12

What's more fun than a podcast episode with a title full of acronyms! Well, many things, I'm sure, but for now it's time to once more get Lost with your hosts Gdaybloke and Northblade as they rake their guest over the metaphorical coals in the quest for some details regarding the Breast Cancer Brawls being held this year, and compare notes on how to survive three-day conventions without lapsing into a sleep-deprivation-induced coma. Oh, and we got our hands on the current draft of the Templecon 2012 tournament schedule as well. Ain't we stinkers?

LHR ep37: What Agenda?

Seriously, I googled "No Agenda" and got a pic of fighting Squirrels... HAH! Anyway, the Lost Hemisphere boys are back for another round, flying by the seat of their pants and dragging their guest along for the ride. This time, it's renowned lover of tiny land sharks and laser engraving, PG Ravyn, to natter about Legion in Hardcore, fill us in on the dirty details behind Advanced Deployment, and to make a weird little purring noise at every opportunity.

This is what happens when the boys fly unplugged... Find the episode on iTunes, or download directly by clicking the link: LINKY!

LHR ep36: The Frankencast

ZOMG! We're late! I blame Faultie. Why? Cos Norbert said to. See, we had this wonderful epic 3 hour chat about news, map leagues, and starting out with models other than the battleboxes, and then BAM! Audio Gremlins promptly ate two hours worth of superb niftiness.

Much scrambling, and after taking Spud out behind the garden shed and shooting him for his insolence, we grabbed Norbert, Seraphsong and Boots to rerecord the segments as best we could. You miss out on the original awesomeness, but hey! Now you get Norbert and Boots! That's almost as good as a Coke Zero! Find us on iTunes, or click the link to download! Linky!

LHR ep35: No Quarter X

Ten years ago Privateer Press started the journey that has led them towards becoming one of the premiere miniature gaming companies in the world. Constantly raising the bar for gaming excellence, it only makes sense that Privateer celebrates its tenth year by... giving us a bonus magazine, chock full of fiction, hobby articles, behind-the-scenes peeks, and the single biggest battle report ever to appear in the pages of No Quarter.

Given the significance of this release, it only makes sense to grab NQ Editor In Chief Aeryn Rudel by the earlobe and pull him in to chat with Lost Hemisphere Radio host Northblade... the only question is, who's the surprise cohost filling in for Gdaybloke while he's off recovering from the dreaded lurgy? Who's to blame? Who's fault is it??

LHR ep34: GenCon Debriefing

Know what makes for a fascinating episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio? Listening to two guys who didn't even attend, talk about it for an hour or two. Bugger that! We were lucky enough to have three roving reporters at GenCon 2011, so I think it's only fair that we let them do most of the natterings! As we break all of our normal rules about the number of guests, please welcome back to Lost Hemisphere Radio Ayden "Boots" Boutilier and Craig "Lonelymonk" Caton, and we'll toss in interviewer Andrew "Faultie" Bailey as seasoning. He's a little like oregano.

LHR ep33: Return of the JD

Because you demanded it - no, not you, you there in the back, with the weird facial growth - YOU demanded it, so JDWhitee's back to join us for another episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio! This time around we take a few chunks out of No Quarter 37, toss a few lists together, and spend far too long talking about a question from one listener. Just one! Imagine if we'd had TWO people sending in questions!

Will Naaresh inspire JDWhitee to get a plethora of piercings? Will Haley's new theme send Northblade into Storm Strider spasms? Will Gdaybloke actually put a NON theme force on the table to test out the Ogrun Assault Corps? And in the end, what would three guys who don't play Khador do with Strakhov? Tune in to find out!

LHR ep32: Wrath pt3

One more time, boys and girls! Gdaybloke and Northblade are back with the third of their triumvirate of Wrath discussions, and we''ll be darned if they aren't dragging the King of All Media through the muck and mire with them as they sully their hands with talk of Cygnar and Khador and what their Wrath releases portend for the forces of Leto and Ayn Vanar. 

Recorded on July 15th, LHR ep32 may or may not have been recorded in a snowstorm, and may or may not be infested by audio gremlins because someone fed the mogwai after midnight. You can partake of the wintery wonderland by downloading the episode on iTunes, or by clicking this here link: LINKY!

LHR ep31: Wrath Pt2

Who wants another episode? Oh, sure, why not. Gdaybloke and Northblade are back with the second of their triumvirate of Wrath discussions, this time delving into the Nightmare empire and nattering about Cryx, and then seeing if Gdaybloke's still awake to talk about Menite stuff afterwards. Darn these long, late-night recording sessions!

Recorded on July 2nd, LHR ep31 may or may not be powered by caffiene, fruit loops and whatever Australian candy Northblade's wife managed to smuggle into the country. We admit nothing. You can make up your own mind by downloading the episode on iTunes, or by clicking this here link: LINKY!

LHR ep30: Wrath Pt1

Ladies and Gentlelost, after a hiatus we're back, and ready to celebrate all that is Warmachine: Wrath. Now, full disclosure, we've gone through a few changes behind the scenes and we're still working out out all the kinks as we work to find a new groove and shuffle the formats a tad, but we hope you'll bear with us as we get all of our ducks in a row.

LHRep29: Say Watt??

One of the coolest things about our rotating guest format is that, odds are, every once in a while we'll end up with someone who actually knows what they're talking about. For episode 29 of everyone's favourite audio iteration of our usual wacky Lost shenanigans, MenothJohn and Gdaybloke are joined by a guest known for his competitive acumen, so naturally we pick his brains while dealing with godawful satellite interwebs lag, and then call in a ringer late in the piece.

LHRep28: UNBOUND... oh, and NQ36

Yay! John's back! The Dynamic Duo of Lost Hemispodcasting, along with their dreamy guest, return to meander their way through the pages of No Quarter #36 (that's three dozen issues - milestone!) and to apply their collective ponderings to Unbound, the new rules for ridiculously large games of Warmachine and Hordes.

You do realise, of course, that Gdaybloke will have an excuse to field 6 (!) Allegiants in an Unbound game? Why, it's enough to make a guy giddy. Tune in and get Lost, people! Download the episode on iTunes, or via this here linky: LINKY!

LHRep27: Palette Cleanser

Not long ago on the Lost Hemisphere blog we discussed the issue of game burnout and ways to avoid it; one method discussed is cleansing the palette - taking a brief hiatus from your normal hobby fascination, indulging in something else, and then coming back to your main game refreshed and revitalised.
In this episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio, aside from the usual Warmachine and Hordes mutterings, Gdaybloke spends some time with pals James and Kevin, taking an overview look at Spartan Games' three fleet games Uncharted Seas, Firestorm Armada and Dystopian Wars, and Soda Pop's super cute Super Dungeon Explore and impending Relic Knights.

LHRep26: DIECON and the Triune Podcast

Every once in a while the planets align in some sort of conjunction that some folks assign a mystical meaning to, and most of the rest of the world don't really seem to care about... now it's our turn! With Gdaybloke suffering from the dreaded lurgy, it's the return of the Fez, co-hosting with MenothJohn to bring Lost Hemisphere Radio and Fell Calls together once more... but the title of the episode says Triune, no? That means... Oh Dear Lord in Heaven, the Losties have shanghai'd someone from another Warmachine podcast as their guest! What could this mean? Well, let me put it to you simply: It means three hours of awesome. Strap yourself in, kids, this one's a long one! Download on iTunes or via the direct Linky!

LHRep24: NQ35 - The Aeryn Strikes Back

Hi. How are you? Did you miss us? We've been well, thank you. Yes, the weather has been rather mutable. At least we've been able to pass the time with a brand new No Quarter... Oh yeah, and editor Aeryn Rudel was kind enough to drop by for tea and elevenses. He totally brought a flan. It was very tasty. Ahem...

Yeah, that's right folks, the Lost Hemisphere boys are back to wander through No Quarter 35, seeing what we can squeeze out of Privateer staffer and No Quarter editor Aeryn. Who's really responsible for the Berserker MkII, Aeryn? And remember, you're under oath... 

Join us as we discuss model previews, new theme forces, and find tease Aeryn about his closet Khadoran tendencies. Oh, and JDWhitee joins us after the break to share his insights on the Dawn's Talon and some other random malarky.

LHRep23: The Ugly Ducklings

We've been at this gig for almost a year now, and every step of the way we've managed to avoid 'em, but now MenothJohn and Gdaybloke finally turn their thoughts to the armies of Cygnar. Golden boy Stryker leads the charge as the Lost Hemisphere Lads and their special guest natter a tad about those who bear the Cygnus, toss out some 50pt army lists, and then bounce a few thoughts about the IK RPG as it stands, and some hopes for the future.

LHR ep22: Big Red War Machines

Return of the Bloke! That's right, the border police couldn't keep him away, and now that he's back in the Frozen North, it's only appropriate that we talk about the Frozen North! Yup, harkening back to the early days of LHR, MenothJohn and Gdaybloke drag a one of Ayn Vanar's military advisors from his war cabinet (which looks surprisingly like a drinks cabinet) to talk about Khador's evolution in MkII, and how to disassemble a Winterguard Death Star without needing to fire a torpedo down an exhaust port.

But wait, there's more! Gdaybloke gets to unload on some of his favourite moments of Templecon 2011, and since we're talking about giant warjacks, the lads track down the Holloway boys and make them spill the beans on constructing the Colossal scenario board at Templecon. What was it made of, why did it only have one arm, and just which of the two did all the hard work!

LHR ep21: Templecon 2011 & Gators

Ladies and Gentlelost, it's time to once more bend your delicate shell-like ears as we regale you with tales of adventure and derring-do in Rhode Island as Lost Hemisphere invades Templecon 2011! Think you can handle the awesomeness as MenothJohn takes control of the Good Ship LHR and covers for Gdaybloke's absence with a guest co-host? Who could it be? Well, if you gotta get a co-host for a Warmachine/Hordes podcast, why not shanghai one of the dudes who pioneered the concept? That's right, MenothJohn done found hi'self a Podthrall!

Ride with the boys as they ponder just how they survived 72 hours of non-stop gamery, whether or not Fez's are cool, and just for a lark, ripping Dicewraith out of his cocoon to talk about the Blindwater Congregation seemed like a great idea at the time. Oh, and just so you're not left completely high and dry when it comes to Gdaybloke's accent, turns out he managed to corner a few folk to chat with at Templecon, and the sneaky bugger managed to record the conversation...

Time for another one, folks! Gators have been rescheduled due to a guest conflict; instead, roll with us as we taaake iiiit slooow and discuss slow grow leagues with a different guest entirely! Can Menothjohn, Dicewraith and our secret guest convince Gdaybloke to try Cygnar? Or maybe just something a little Cygnaresque?

Random speculation is just the beginning as we look at some league models, contemplate Epic Baldur, and try to recover from a terrible, terrible opening. Who the heck let Gdaybloke rewrite the lyrics?? Get the goodness on iTunes, or through a direct download: Linky!
