TooFatLardies Oddcast, Episode Two

The terrible trio took the advantage of a long drive to Crisis in Antwerp to discuss their hopes for the show and, the big issue of the show, their experiences walking battlefields and how that relates to their wargaming.
We apologise for the sound quality on this episode, but the discussion was recorded as we attempted to re-enter earth’s atmosphere somewhere just over Belgium.
You can find the Oddcast HERE

  3. Agreed.
    And yes, touring a battlefield really does add a lot to your understanding of the events that transpired there. I knew that there was bloody fighting at the Sunken Lane at Antietam, and I had seen pictures of the area. But until you actually stand there and look at the ground men had to cover to approach it (there’s a sort of gentle hump to the land just to the north, maybe 70 yards away), it’s hard to understand just how screwed the soldiers approaching it really were – and how screwed the soldiers in it were once they were finally flanked.

  4. Tat was really good; really interesting. I thought I had walked a couple of battlefiekds but on reflection I appear to have ambled around them instead ? I will know better now thanks to Lard!! Did you perhaps get a photo of that big, naked, one-eyed chap by the side of the road? No? Probably just as well ?

  5. Guys I’ve been reading a lot of ww2 books recently Max hasting, Anthony Beaver and Jonathon Dimbleby. Can you guys recommend a good book covering the British army in the Far East??

Something for the Weekend

The past seven months have seen Lard Island frantic with some pseudo military modelling since we began playtesting Chain of Command. As well as getting to paint a whole raft of new armies I have been testing out all sorts of AFVs with our forces. Now, as we get to the final stages of playtesting

Back to the Boer War

Back being the operative word. Much to the amusement of my chums, I did my back in whilst carrying the Christmas tree into the house in early December, something which has stopped me sitting at my desk for any length of time for the past month. As a result, despite being able to stand and

Getting the Horn Part Five: A Hard Slog

Well, some days go easily, some less well and  yesterday was a real slog trying to get al the terrain finished before moving on to the slaver figures.  Not so many “how to” pictures as a fair bit was just a repeat of earlier techniques. First step was the gun emplacement to cover the approach
