So there we have it!  We'd love your comments and feedback!  Go easy on us rookies though, we are still getting the feel for this medium. Happy  Also, tell us how you got started with Chaos Dwarfs!

Cheers, Cheers!

Glad you liked it guys!  SO how did you guys start Chaos Dwarfs?! Big Grin

Also, I'd love to hear better suggests for the name.  Chaos Dwarf Cast doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.
Je ne parle pas francais. Tongue

Sorry! Tongue
That was great, I enjoyed it a lot! Cheers! More of that anytime!
I liked it a lot, you covered lots of things.

Was I the only one screaming 'It's Ghark Ironskin!?!?' Wink

IMO you should do a regular feature on how to convert using new/ unsual models.

Something else you could do one of each podcast could be the process of army theming.  It would include ideas for how to go about re-designing CD fluff for your characters/ list etc, then leading onto the list, finally the different ways to theme your models themselves (not just a paint job).
Excellent feedback.

We will have a weekly Hobby section of the show where such a thing can be covered.  So both of those ideas would work.

Also, you're welcome to join us on a Cast, Grim. Wink
If I had a microphone I would.
What would it take to get that to happen? Tongue

EDIT: zomg Shock 2000 posts.
Got to make sure all this positive feedback doesn't go to my head!

Any questions you want answered on the next one, just put 'em here.
Give that man a slave! Big Grin
Finally got around to listening to it.  Might be a bit long an over an hour.
Chaos Dwarf Cast: It does sound pretty odd.  "CDO Podcast" seemed okay, how about "Hashutcast".  You got the dollar conversions round the wrong way for the 25th anniversary deals, but it still doesn't mean you save that much.  Add some ID3 tags to the mp3 file.  Give a list to everyone involved of the discussion topics and the sorts of questions that will be coming up so they can think about what they are going to say before the recording.  Putting them on the spot seems to lead to a bit of dead-air.  It felt like they knew some of it was going to come up but others came out of the blue that could have been prepared for.  Of course, you don't want to lose _all_ of the spontenaity.  Maybe people will loosen up as they get used to it (I am useless enough on the phone, not sure how well I'd do on something like this even if I could find my webcam microphone)  Do you know if you can balance the different people before or after the recording?  Some were a lot quieter than others.  Was it recorded all in one take?

Overall, the format worked well and it was far better than most first-time podcasts I've heard.  I didn't think that you could fill up the time so well.  Nice and prepared to look up stuff on the fly too.  Looking forward to the next one.

Ya, I will try to keep it under and hour in the future, that's my target.

Ya, I am not really keen on any of those, they don't sound greata rolling off the tongue.  We will have to brainstorm some more...

Heh, slip of the mind, $10 = 5 pounds. We should know this.

Not a bad idea.  The RSS feed stores some good information viewable in iPods.

This we did have.  We use a Google Document that we are all looking at that includes links.  We even discussed a lot of these prior to the cast.  Like I said at the start, Pyro was a bit tired/shy.  But yes, dead air was an issue.  I actually editted out some of it myself.  Confidence will come with time, I think.

Pyro was a quiet guy, though I thought the rest of the voices were fairly balanced.  It was all one take through skype, all one wave file, so I can't really adjust the volumes once it is recorded, the best we can do is try to align the volumes before we begin.

I have a couple episodes worth of podcasting experince, hence my taking the Lead role in moving things along.  Yes, YOU didn't think we could.  I did recall you being one of the naysayers! Tongue

I am glad you were able to enjoy it anyway. Happy

Thanks for the comments, Cornixt! Takes Hat off

I'd be the first to admit I was wrong!  Although my main concern was that there wouldn't be enough material for sveral of them, I guess we'll see in 6 months, especially if any new official CD news comes in.
There will always be something to talk about. Wink

I agree, and personally I liked it be over an hour, I listened to the podcast as I drove to school, and then while I was in the car before I actually go in, the subjects were all pretty good, but the best part I think was the fluff section.  Talking about fluff interests me to no end, so more of that would be fantastic IMO.  

Overall, better than I could do, but has a few chinks to work out, the volume thing as already mentioned by Cornixt, along with the "putting them on the spot kind of thing."  

I give it an 7/10 Cheers!

Glad people liked it. Apologies for the volume stuff, but as Mr. Xander said, we can't edit voulmes of people. We did this in one take and it was around midnight when we started (apart from for Mr. Xander). We'll imrpove with time Wink

I was suprised Pyro was so soft spoken! Wander to the Marketplace posts. His posts are anything but that! Happy


Yeah im going to try work on that. I must have some kind of microphone phobia.

cool podcast i always enjoy my hobby podcasts just as things to listen to whilst painting.

what i suggest for future casts is maybes have 1 subject for every cast and discuss that, say discussing your own opinions, opinions on the forums, etc. a good one would be big hats vs masks/helms.

you could call it 'The CDO Show'
I disagree with the idea of one talking about hats v helms v masks. That's what near enough killed the Hand of Hashut. Bad route to take.
I don't think the topic is beyond discussion so long as every one remains civil.  But their is no point in choosing a single one as better than another.  

The structure of the show is unlikely to change wholey, but we do have background discussions for which a topic such as this may be brought up.

We are getting close to April too, which means a new cast!

The CDO Show... not bad.  Better than what have so far. Tongue What do people think of Chaos Dwarf Radio?
