    The lads are back in front of their mics to be joined by the mercurial Shane Baxter of Team Northern Ireland ETC fame to discuss all things T9a. Shane's penchant for a list that's never been played before is well known (see his chariot heavy HE Lockdown list for example)and we push that to the extreme in this list building free for all. So, if you've ever wondered if an all Barbarian Great Weapon list might work, or thought that a flying circus Vampire Counts list might be just what the meta needs then this one's for you.
    In other news the lads discuss the ongoing UB tournaments and discuss ancient Greek Poetry with hilarious mispronunciations that would ensure Herodotus rushing to fetch his shotgun Enjoy!
    Warning - Kev's Gremlins are back for the fist 10 and it sounds as though he's trying to join in from the end of a long tunnel, it gets better after 10 mins and we apologise for this. Again

  • The Paired Weapons Podcast requests and requires your listening holes...

    Kev's home from his holiday and the lads are back to talking about T9a. This episode they take on the mighty task of reviewing their progress in various ongoing UB tournaments (all three!) and then discuss magic as though they understand what they are talking about. Which is questionable.

    In a reversal of form from earlier in the year Matt hits an epic and unprecedented run of form whilst Kev is becalmed with both KoE and DL. Can Mr and Mrs Mino get him back to winning ways?
    Only one way to find out....

  • Warning - Kev's technical Gremlins have rendered his mic super quiet - for this we apologise, a new mic is on it's way...

    The lads are joined by Jack Chapman from the Thundercocks Podcast to preview the UK and Rep of Ireland's First UB Ranking Tournament - The Lockdown Brawl. Selected lists and first round prediction goodness is joyously spread before like some sort of T9a Smorgasbord, much of which is ill informed gibberish but fun none-the -less.

    The guys also cover Jack's Thunderknock(out) UB tournament whilst Matt tries to recall his Shakespeare from many, many years ago. Jack derails the Paired Weapons podcast to talk about his HBE list all the while Kev tries to make himself heard with his dodgy mic. Just as well he couldn't get a word in edge-ways!

  • With the Celtic Cup 2 now fully underway the lads attempt to review all 16 armies in an hour, one from each faction in the Ninth Age. Having given themselves 60 minutes they then waste a bunch of time talking about other things such as book recommendations (Matt gets the author's name wrong), painting updates and Kev's unwarranted and irrational prejudice against bases.

    If you want to have a look at the lists then here they are in all their glory!…/edit?usp=sharing

    In other news Matt paints lots of walls and Kev is unfaithful to the Paired Weapons Podcast and listens to another pod, whose name we shall not deign to mention…

  • Boom! We're back!

Broadcast directly from Matt's new house (which nearly killed him and others moving into)Kev graces Matt with his presence and the lads record Face to Face, in a truly weird experience for all concerned.

At least he got the right Century!

    Lock Up Your Everything! Here Come The Orcs and Goblins!

The secrets of T9a's most lovable rogues are forthcoming in a tsunami of Orcs, Goblins and their (Big 'N Nasty) friends whilst the heavens crash and roil in the background - very thematic!

    In other news Matt has to dig a drainage channel whilst podding and Kev tries on a bunch of new masks to find his best look.

    The Celtic Cup - Pool Stages Roundup

    Rumours of our demise are much exaggerated! After a weeks holiday from podding Matt and Kev are back with tales from the Celtic Cup Pool Stages brilliantly organised by James of Team Ireland and Fras of Team Scotland.
