After placing pretty well at Gen Con 2016 my girlfriend and I decided to start our own Imperial Assault Skirmish Strategy Podcast.
 
It's called New Orders and we've recorded 2 episodes so far talking about Gen Con and then a local tournament + the metagame (we're 100% focused on Skirmish).
 
You can search for 'New Orders' to find us in the iTunes podcast directory (used by many other apps on iOS and Android too) or find it via the links below:
 
iTunes Podcast Listing
Overcast Podcast Listing (Overcast is a free iOS Podcast client that I recommend, see Overcast.fm)
SoundCloud Homepage
Direct Podcast RSS Feed 
 
You can also find us on Twitter at @IANewOrders.
 
Thanks for listening and let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

It was fun to listen to the GenCon results from a different perspective (especially since I was one of the competitors of Jennifer)

Great podcast! Keep it up!

Hey all, thanks for the positive feedback.  I just posted a new episode which you can hear on SoundCloud or via your Podcast client.
 
In this episode: 
 
First up is a quick discussion of 2 recent tournaments.
 
Second, we discuss when to roll a white or black die with Cross-Trained Stormtroopers. This is the Damage Probability Calculator we use in this section.
(This starts at 5m28s)
 
Finally, for the bulk of the episode, we discuss spoilers for Jabba's Realm! We assume you've seen all the spoilers posted by FFG at the links below (please review them if you haven't yet because we didn't want to waste time re-reading entire cards):

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/8/5/the-batt...
https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/9/16/a-step-...
(This starts at 12m50s)
 
Thanks for listening!

Thank you for putting this podcast together and bringing more needed attention to Imperial Assault. Being a voracious listener to podcasts I found yours a bit dry. (listened to first two episodes.) Could really benefit from more personal introductions to who you both are. Furthermore more humor and varied types of content would help too. Anyway, just my two cents.

Thanks for taking the time to listen Chris.

This is our first podcast so we're learning as we go. I certainly realize that the subject is very narrow and dry, but we really want to focus on skirmish strategy as it's something we know well. We can add humor where it fits but I'm not really interested in talking about other games or our personal background much.

I 100% understand that if IA Skirmish is not one of your favorite hobbies or you're looking for something more light-hearted, then we're probably boring. Perhaps you'll enjoy some of these other Imperial Assault related podcasts instead (several cover X-Wing and other Star Wars games too):

New episode is up, you can hear on SoundCloud or via your Podcast client.

In this episode we discuss the newest spoilers from Jabba's Realm after doing a bit of testing on the Rancor, Weequays, Gamorreans, and Jet Troopers over the weekend.

Please review the new cards before listening (we don't spell out every detail on the episode to save time).

There is also a short discussion about the Sorin list that starts at 13m38s in to the episode.

Hi all! We've got a new episode up just in time for worlds. It should show up in your podcast feed automatically or you can listen on SoundCloud.
 
In this episode we discuss the new ISB Headquarters map. We also talk about the upcoming World Championship for Imperial Assault, specifically covering the metagame, lists we would play, and general tournament advice.

Please leave any suggestions/questions/feedback/thoughts here or on Twitter.
 
Thanks for listening!
