Juan Hidalgo at Vallejo may have sabotaged the release of Army Painter Speedpaint by “inventing” a reactivation issue. Content he made about alternatives to Games Workshop’s Contrast Paints inaccurately demonstrates SpeedPaint and another alternative from Green Stuff World. This just happened to coincide with his work on Vallleojo’s own version of the single coat paint. If true, this is a dirty trick and should be called out. It needs to be very clear when content creators are using their audience and reach to promote a product for profit while falsely denigrating the competition.

Along with the first wave of official D&D action figures from the upcoming movie “Thieves Among Us”, Hasbro has just announced Dicelings. These are oversized D20s with unique rune, feather, or scale theming. They change into one of four iconic monsters; a Beholder, an Owlbear, a Black Dragon, or a classic Red Dragon. Dicelings will retail for $13.99 and due to arrive March 1, 2023. The 50th anniversary thing is shaping up to be quite a thing.

The Mantic Companion App Launches for Kings of War, Deadzone and Firefight. It will include an Army List Builder, Mathhammer (a damage output vs. points cost calculator), Living Rulesets, a Tournament Companion, Game Hub, Club Finder and Worldwide Rankings. Kyle from Master Crafted even mentioned the S-word, STLs. This is available to everyone for FREE until January 31st 2023. Using a special code you will have access to the full features of the Companion app for three months.

This past weekend, Sportscenter on ESPN ran a four-minute-long segment on Dungeons & Dragons in the Cleveland Browns. The gaming group is called the Heathens consisting of Johnny Stanton IV,  former fullback on the Browns, as DM, and Myles Garrett and Wyatt Teller, current Browns players. They struck up a conversation about D&D when one of the players wore a Stranger Things t-shirt in the locker room. All this tabletop distraction may help to explain why Cleveland continues to struggle in the AFC North.

Chris was not available making this week a solo show. First, I discuss the rebranding and name change from Idle Red Hands to Upturned Table. Mantic releases second edition public playtest rules for Firefight. Broken Tales by The World Anvil now has an English language quickstart in advance of their May Kickstarter campaign. The Ruins of Symbaroum for 5E is now on Kickstarter bringing the dark fantasy setting by Free League to the world’S greatest roleplaying game. Will it be a good thing for the game by broadening its audience?

This is the live broadcast of our discussion of all things tabletop.
