Join me as I celebrate the 50th show of Meeples & Miniatures – the podcast about Miniature Wargames & Strategy Boardgames – with a packed programme of gaming goodness!
I revisit World War I, with another look at WW1 minis in 28mm that you may have missed (I know I did!) and I also review Stout Hearts & Iron Troopers, the new scenario pack from Too Fat Lardies.
My in-depth review
this month is of the new Napoleonic wargame
There is also a large number of reviews in the show, including products from Wargames Illustrated, HLBS Co, Knuckleduster, Spartan Games and Gripping Beast.
Download the show and join in the fun!

Welcome to episode #1 of View from the Veranda (VftV).
VftV is a spin off from the Meeples & Miniatures podcast, and features Neil Shuck in conversation with Henry Hyde, editor of Battlegames magazine.
In each show, we take one or two subjects as our theme, and simply ‘have a chat’ about the wargaming hobby, with these subjects in mind.
In this first episode, we discuss some of the contents of the latest issue of Battlegames magazine, and also chat about why historical wargaming doesn’t seem to be as popular as sci-fi and fantasy gaming.
So, pull up a chair and join us on the Veranda!

Show 49 of Meeples & Miniatures – the podcast about Miniature Wargames & Strategy Boardgames – is now available to download.
Following on from playing the recently released Through the Mud and the Blood WWI skirmish rules at Salute, this show has an in-depth review of these great new rules from Too Fat Lardies, and I also discuss a couple of options for figures you can use with the game.
Other reviews include the re-launched Miniature Wargames magazine, and I also review the new Campaign Book, Volume 1 for Memoir ’44.
Finally, I take a few minutes to discuss why I’m an historical miniatures gamer, and why it’s such a great part of the wargaming hobby.
Enjoy the show!
