We look at what is new for Christmas in the the latest episode of the podcast, it turns out there isn't much new to spend your hard earned cash on (though for some reason we missed Gangs of Rome).
The boys explain the analogue painting challenge, which both Jasper and Guy are taking part in this year. For the main feature we talk to Ancient Warfare Podcast regular, Marc De Santis. Marc has been dabbling in writing fiction for Gates of Antares.
It's that time of the year again where we review the results of the WSS Great Wargames Survey! Have you ever wondered what is the favourite wargames genre? Have a listen and find out...
In this episode Angus, Guy and Jasper are joined by Criag Cartmell from the Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare, Fat Lardies Rich Clarke and some chap called Rick Priestly to discuss how they approach writing rules.
Also in this episode:
We've all had the problem of not being able to find someone to play with? In this episode Angus discusses ways to solve this problem and is joined by Neil Shuck (Meeples and Miniatures) to try a game of Command and Colours using the online gaming engine Vassal. And Murray Dahm (Ancient Warfare Podcast) they attempt to play a game of Frostgrave via a Google Hangout!
Plus we have a quick news round up and chat about what we've been up to.
The Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy team, with the Karwansaray the publisher, were present at Salute in London.
Between manning the stand and running round meeting people they didn't have much time but Guy and Jasper try to convey their impressions of Salute 2017.
Guy, editor of WSS, brings us the latest news from Peter Pig with Men of Company B, a new supplement for In Her Majesty's Name: Gothic, the Bolt Action Campaign book covering Operation Sea Lion and the 4Ground's newly announced fantasy war game Legends of the Fabled Realm (which they'll kickstarter later in the year).
Whilst attending Crusade Guy slunk into the back of a talk from well known historian Adrian Goldsworthy, sneakily he recorded it on his phone. Audio quality aside its a very interesting look at what from history wargames arm missing.
