This short After Hours clip was cut out of Episode 12.

Part way through the episode Joel launched into a rant about game and miniature pricing where it relates to the manufacturer of "another game system".  

Note that while you're reading this, you probably think it's going to be a massive hatefest on said game system, but in true Remote Presence spirit: it is not.  I think that we do a pretty good job of keeping the discussion from being a bash-a-thon and we even get into just how spoiled we are today when it comes to miniature gaming.

We live in a golden age, let us not forget that.

Red Veil!  Red Veil!  Red Veil!

It's all anyone wants to talk about, and with pretty good reason.  It's a killer release, with some absurdly good models, and like its predecessor Operation: Icestorm presents an immense value for both new and veteran players alike.

Sean has a pre-release copy of it on his desk thanks to the amazing Warcors program, and we sit down for a night of discussion about the models and units.  Of course, we don't forget about the other contents of the box, but lets face it: we all really care about the models and units!

We also take some time to discuss what information we currently have on the upcoming Dire Foes releases, as well as the other pair of GenCon releases: the GenCon Exclusive Unknown Ranger and the pre-release of Miyamoto Mushashi.

Greg and Sean provide an update on the first round of the Twin Cities Summer Escalation League, and we get to talking about a trio of listener emails on the subjects of Umbra Samaritan Haris Fireteams, looking at a 200 point listener Haqqislam list, and finally talking briefly about TAGs and specifically Teutonic Knights.

Finally, we pimp a few events that we will either be attending, or are involved in!

Aaaaaaand we're back!  Back in Orange!  Or at least Sean is.  Kind of.

I know that we've been away for awhile now, and I do sincerely apologize for this transgression!  But today we have Sean, Joel, and Greg back again to talk about a number of topics and to hopefully fulfill the need in your life for another Infinity Podcast.

Today we start by talking about some of the new releases and teaser images that CB has been throwing us on the internet.  We move into a conversation about getting started with Vanilla Yu Jing and talk about how we approach building a table to play Infinity on!  We take a listener voicemail from none other than the illustrious Rodge of WaaaghPaca which leads into a discussion on combat groups, order count, and distribution of orders among combat groups.

I normally hate to publish on Fridays but I really wanted to get this out to you today.  Also in the interests of being lazy, I'm forgoing the normal timestamps because I kind of forgot to note them down during the editing process.  Sorry, but I'm sure you'll still enjoy this shit.  For realz.
