Episode 169 - Competitive Gaming

Sponsored by Unique Gifts & Games and 6 Squared Studios

The Garagehammer Toolbox is brought to you by Chaos Orc's Superstore

Please take a look at my Patreon page and consider supporting the show. Just follow this link:


So Alex and I have been getting a bunch of emails and voicemails from people who are new to AoS and they want to know what the power lists are. Since I couldn't tell you a power list to save my life and I forgot to call Rhellion, Alex comes to the rescue with way more than just power lists. Alex breaks down the essentials of AoS lists and what you need to consider when building your OWN list. This one is a must for anyone who has ever thought they need some help/insight into how to build a powerful list.

Tier Benefits
Pledge $0 or more per episode
Pledge $0.01 or more per episode
Patrons Only
"Primed Model" Level
$1 or more per episode 38 patrons
At the Primed Model Level, besides my undying gratitude, your name will be posted on the patrons page on the website and you will have access to the show notes which will be posted here for all patrons to see.
This will give you a chance to see behind the curtain as to how the show is organized, and you can always look back to find the title of that odd thing that I mentioned during the Toolbox segment!
"Three Color Minimum" Level
$3 or more per episode 18 patrons
At the Three Color Minimum level, along with my gratitude and everything included at the $1 pledge level, you are now a part of the zombie hordes. That's right, you'll be entered into the monthly raffle for one of the "thousand zomblars" infesting the crypt here. The winner can choose from one of the original set of 210 square based swamp zombies or one of the new round based zombies. Either way, you'll possess a piece of Garagehammer history. (Caveat: There is a five patron minimum at this level or higher to run the contest.)
"Best Painted" Level
$5 or more per episode 23 patrons
At the Best Painted level, besides the gratitude, the $1 rewards and the $3 rewards patrons at this level will be invited to a private Garagehammer Google Hangout Session every other month. They will be at least an hour long (you all know how much I like to talk) and questions and topics from the group are the order of the day!
I don't know why you'd want to spend money to talk to me in a group chat while you paint, but several of you suggested this reward so here it is!

Also, patrons at this level for three months will receive an official Garagehammer Combat Gauge from Six Squared Studios!
"Golden Daemon" Level
$12 or more per episode 5 patrons
At Golden Daemon Level, the gratitude keeps on gratituding! Of course, you get everything at the $1, $3 and $5 levels. Then, whenever we cover AoS fiction books by Black Library, you will be entered into a raffle to win the copy of the book used in the review complete with the notes (legibility not guaranteed!!!!) I took for the review.
You will also get a special shout out during the next episode recorded after you sign up letting everyone know how big of a fan you truly are!

Also, you will get a personal recording on MP3 from either myself or the Master Engineer! What will the recording be? That's up to you. We can record a message for your voice mail, a commercial for your show, a dramatic reading...whatever! Just send in what you want read (keep it to a few minutes...I'm not reading "War and Peace" for you.) and who you want it read by. The only caveat I'm putting in here is it's got to be family friendly. I reserve the right to reject anything I find not in keeping with the spirit of the show.
"Associate Producer" Level
$20 or more per episode 2 patrons
Associate Producer Level

Ok, gratitude doesn't really get the idea across here. If you decide to pledge at this level, you get the rewards for all the other levels, you will get a shout out during EVERY SINGLE EPISODE, you will be listed in the show notes for every episode with the show's commercial sponsors, and most of all you will be included in the quarterly producer's meeting where you will get to suggest show topics and possibly guide the direction of the show for the following three months. (It's still going to be AoS centered and I still have to agree to the ideas as I'm the one who has to do the show but the topics you most want to hear can suddenly be a reality.)
"Producer" Level
$50 or more per episode 2 of 4 patrons

Ok, so you get everything from every other level. You're a super patron! I will do about anything to make you happy. I'll mention your name on every episode. I'll include you in any blog posts about the show. I'll even fix you dinner and be your bartender while you eat! (OK, that's not true. That's not happening.)
What you CAN get, however, is the opportunity to pick a show topic with me and be the co-host for that show once a year. (There's a limit to 4 of these spots. One co-host per quarter is the idea and you have to be patron at this level for a full quarter before the show.)
If that's not enough, you can totally send me some suggestions on how to make this level worth your money!
