This is the first of the new format monthly editions of the Meeples & Miniatures Podcast, and it’s a bit of a monster.
I’m very pleased to welcome two new co-hosts to the podcast, in the shape of Dave Luff and Jere Koskela.
As well as Dave and Jere, the show has two new sections.
The first is ‘View from the Veranda’, where I discuss various Miniature wargame–related subjects with Henry Hyde of Battlegames magazine. In the premiere episode, we look back at how Battlegames magazine has moved forward in the past year or so, and take a look forward at a couple of things to come.
The second section is ‘The Painting Shed’. I’ve had several requests from listeners to include a hobby section about painting on the show, so we begin a series of articles looking at all the techniques surrounding painting miniatures. Today we concentrate on preparation.
In addition to our new sections, some of the old favourites remain. We have two in-depth reviews, as we take a close look at Memoir ’44 and Canvas Eagles. We also spend some time talking about the games we have been playing in the last month or so.
Finally, I announce the results of the Gutshot Competiton.
Enjoy the show!
