    EP27: The Black Death Kickstarter

    Podcast EP27: The Black Death Kickstarter
    Join Dan and Rex in this interesting episode as we interview Steffan from Flank March Miniatures about his currently running ‘The black death’ Kickstarter for 3D printable 28mm WW2 Soviet Naval Infantry STL Files.
    Soviet Naval Infantry aren’t normally on top of everyone’s list when thinking about a new WWII wargame army, but we found the whole topic hugely interesting, and this podcast has trigged us to order several Osprey books and a whole lot of web research to go along with our little men.
    We hope you enjoy our journey into Soviet Naval Infantry, check out the Kickstarter here:

    As we progress with painting our sample STL’s Images will show here and will be updated as we continue with our projects:

    EP26: 80th anniversary of the invasion of Sicily and Italy game day
    In this episode of the Valhalla Games podcast Dan and Rex talk about the 80th anniversary of the invasion of Sicily and Italy game day held in Sydney, 18 March 2023.
    Will the allies get a foothold in the soft underbelly or will Italy kick them off, back into the Mediterranean? Perhaps more importantly will the Primosole bridge book scenarios and terrain stack up against the expectation of the veteran Bolt Action players of Western front gamers in Sydney Australia?
    Game on…

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!

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.
