This show has a distinctly wargaming flavour to it, as I concentrate on wargaming rules reviews and chatting about miniatures.
In particular, I’m looking at skirmish gaming in large scale – 40mm to be exact – and specifically gaming in the late 18th and early 19th Century, incorporating the American War of Independence, the French Indian War and the Napoleonic War.
I review the rules Black Powder Battles in depth, plus I look at some other, free (or at least very cheap), skirmish rules that you may want to consider for this period.
Finally, I look at the broad range of 40mm figures that are available, whether it be Napoleonics from the likes of Sash & Saber or Perry Miniatures, French Indian War from HLBS or American War of Independence from Front Rank Figurines, to name but a few.

This show is a bit of a compromise, as I’ve been struggling for time in the past week or so to finish editing my reviews (serves me right for babbling on so much!) and if I was to wait until all the material I’ve recorded for this show has been edited, it would be another week before the podcast would be out.
Therefore, I’ve decided to produce a show with the material I’ve got so far. This means that this show is somewhat lite on wargaming content, as the main material I have left out are the rules and figure reviews. However, don’t depair! These reviews will be produced in their own show in a week or so.
So, what can you expect to find in today’s show?

Episode 26 of ‘Meeples & Miniatures’ – the podcast about Miniature Wargaming and Strategy Boardgames – is now available for download.
This show is my ‘Game Review Of 2007’, in which I discuss my favourite Boardgames, Wargames and Figure ranges of last year.
I also look forward to 2008, and talk about a slight change in direction for the podcast.
