    EP12: The Dirty Dozen

    EP12: The Dirty Dozen

    In this twelfth episode of the valhallagames podcast Dan & Rex talk about all things hobby, new projects, what's new in wargaming, what historical events we "want to game" and finally getting out of lockdown (for Australia and new Zealand at least).
    Part two is an in depth discussion around the challenges (imagined or otherwise) in putting the most hated soldiers of any WWII army on the table, and just who are those soldiers? Does it depend on your perspective and what country you happen to come from? Should we be sensitive to political issues in wargaming or always just play "the good guys" so that we don’t offend or in the end is it just a game?
    We would love to hear your thoughts at https://valhallagames.net/index.php/contact
    Game on Australia and New Zealand (but stay safe!)

    EP9: The trouble with 28mm

    In this episode Dan & Rex talk about "the trouble with 28mm". What even is 28mm… it's not a scale? Rex gets angry, will Dan soothe things out and will we come to grips with our scale woe's?
    Will we have a prime directive to give to all manufacturers to ensure that when we open the box will we have "joy".
    As well as that Rex talks about the performance of the new soviets at MOAB gaming convention in Sydney.

    It is a period of total war; Allied armies, landing in hidden locations in Normandy on D Day attempt to win their first Western European battles against the evil Nazi empire...
    A short time later, Soviet forces strike through Romania and into Hungary, and advance onto Fortress Budapest...
    If this was scrolling up the screen and had a princess escaping stormtroopers and Vader this couldn’t get any more exciting!!

    We hope you enjoy this and remind you to check out both our blog and Youtube channel.

Bolt Action and More

I like the BA talk but also the terrain, modeling, and general hobby topics. I also like the deep dive into history and how their learning impacts their hobby.

History lessons

I found this podcast because of the amazing battle reports on you tube! I love the idea behind the games this group plays. I love that this is way more than just tournament talk!
