Excellent

Just returning to the hobby, left in 77 punk, women and life to blame !! Then living in London.

It’s all changed but it really hasn’t. It’s not all lead now!! the stuff on line etc is awesome. But this pod is very very good. Being a Brit and having hitch hiked through San Antonio in 81 to find a group of friends from there who weren’t distracted back in 77 as I was helping to update me is great the guys have kept the faith and pushed on.

Their obvious friendship, great wit and excellent dialogue is so natural to listen to. The guests are very impressive as well.

The whole tenor is realistic of how you fit this hobby into life ( or can’t) It’s informed and has brought me up to date with what is going on in wargaming right now.

Thank you very much guys!!

Spoilt for choice.

There are so many good podcasts for wargamers and people interested in hobby. I like to listen along to this one whilst I’m painting. Good show guys.

Perfect painting companion

I recently found this podcast and have already binged it. The guys have great banter between them and are really easy to listen to. I especially like the range of topics that they cover and their fun approach to the discussions. My only wish was that the episodes were longer! I feel like the guys only just get into the nitty gritty of the discussions before it ends. I’m sure you guys could talk for an hour each pod and we’d definitely listen! Keep up the good work.
