    Is it real or is it fantasy?

    In the last episode, the Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy team touched upon 'range' as a concept on the tabletop. The guys thought they would revisit the topic and consider how range effects the games we play, from how far we can shoot to fudging the scale of the table.

I love this podcast

This is my favorite wargaming podcast. I only wish they produced episodes more often- say twice a month. It’s just as rare a treat as the magazine, which is regrettable.

Outstanding!!

As a new, late in life, war gamer I really love this podcast. They talk about the spirit and background of war gaming. They talk about specific games and products. They talk about what they're up to in gaming and miniature prep. It's like being in the club and listening to the conversation after the game, over a pint. It's wonderful!! Please keep it going for as long as it can!!
