HSP #16 - New Toys!

Trade points have given us a sneak peek on a bunch of new models. Adam, Dylan, and Daniel discuss what we know about these models and what we hope they include. New stuff includes Goreshade 4 returning as the Forgiven to the Iosans, a Command Attachment for the new Swordsmen, Nyss Defenders, Nyss solos, an Arcanist unit, Spears of Scyrah, the Fane Knight Guardian, and Hemera. Wow, that's a lot!

And join the House Shyeel Podcasters Facebook group for conversation between episodes.

HSP #15 - Bonus Errata, Helios, New Tier, and More!

Indirect Ret buff, ahoy! With some of the biggest and baddest of Warmachine getting nerfed, we take some time to discuss what that will mean for the future of the Retribution of Scyrah in the tournament scene. Adam, Dylan, and Dan are interrupted by a late guest, Michael Ireland, just so Mike can remind Dan that he's wrong. More discussion on Helios, the first and only tier we have, a Thyron list that doesn't suck, and more!

Also, if you're interested in reading what Adam has been doing instead of Warmachine lately, check out the Slim Down Showdown competition blog. Please leave a comment, as it helps Adam towards winning the grand prize.

HSP #11 - We're Still Here!

It has been a long time since I last posted an episode, but here's a new one! We actually recorded this one a while ago, but I never got around to editing it and posting it online. I'm still pretty busy, so I didn't have the time to devote my normal level of attention to editing this time around. But at least it's here!

This time, the three of us talk about Meta Analysis and Faction Matchups. We cover the Warmachine factions. Enjoy!

HSP #9 - Ranking the Casters

We rank all the casters, worst to best! But first, we discuss several of the lessons we've learned in Mark 3, the meta we've seen at tournaments and conventions like Texicon so far, and which casters we are enjoying the most. Many topics are covered, as the focus today is very broad. Enjoy!

Also, a poll! What do you want us to cover next? Please check out this poll to help us decide what content you are most interested in hearing about.

HSP #8 - LnL 2016 with Tom Guan!

House Shyeel Podcasters, now with Tom Guan! Okay, he's not a real Retribution player, but we had to have someone with good battle reports from Lock N' Load since Daniel let us down! We recap the best matches both of them experience, discuss why Tom played Ret in the first place, and talk about a Cryx player's perspective on the Iosan army. We also talk about the Lys Healer, the new Swordsmen, and Helynna!

HSP #7 - Spoiler Chat

Adam, Dylan, and Daniel discuss the models they are most looking forward to playing in Mark 3. Since the discussion is about leaked spoilers instead of completely official ones, there is a chance that some of what we talk about will be completely wrong! But we talk about it anyway. Enjoy!

HSP #5 - Mark 3 Impressions

Warmachine is dead! Long live Warmachine! Instead of the normal, focused discussion, we talk about the little we know about Mark 3 and what it means for Retribution. We even discuss some predictions! Due to the unpredictable nature of Mark 3 spoilers, we are not sure when the next HSP will air. Once we have the full rules, expect us to get back to the regular schedule. Until then, we'll be a little more flexible with timing of future episodes.

HSP #3 - Rahn

We're back! Today we are forcing Daniel to talk with us about Rahn. Dylan and Adam love playing as Rahn, but Daniel is a little grumpy on the topic. Can we Telekinesis him around on the premier Retribution magic user?

House Shyeel Podcasters #1 - Ravyn

This is the House Shyeel Podcaster's first podcast! Adam, Dylan, and Daniel discuss Ravyn. In light of her recent success at LVO and steady surge in popularity, we talk about how to play Ravyn, starting off with why she's fun, the move into different builds. We also share some strategies and tactics to help play Ravyn better, and end by discussing matchups she is good into.

We are definitely open to feedback, but we hope you enjoy!
