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.

Way Down South in the Land of Cotton…

Plantations are odd things and certainly not very trendy in todays PC world, however, for a wargamer who enjoys the AWI and the ACW there can be no doubt that having a few relevant buildings to represent the agricultural heart of the old South is a boon.  I have long been eyeing the superb buildings
