Warning: May contain traces of Fallout 4 In Act I, we talk about wargaming n00b news and rumours, including a sneak peek at Berlin, the upcoming and eagerly awaited Flames Of War supplement. Then Dan and Mike can’t help but talk a little Fallout 4 following the Bethesda E3 conference, much to Greg’s lament. In Act II, we cover our TCOW game day AARs and answer some more excellent listener questions. We don’t talk about Fallout 4 in this act, but we’re thinking about it. In Act III, we answer a live Tweet question (yay!) and talk a bit about our tournament preparations for a couple of upcoming events next month. I don’t remember much about this act because I’m daydreaming about Fallout 4.

Before launching the escape pods Dano, Eric, Judson and Steve chat about just a portion of the game's objective scenarios, with more sure to come in future episodes.

Bolt Action Radio number thirty-five brings together Anf, Bryan and Judson for a bit of a reunion. Recently, the two goulash lovers had released an unofficial supplement for the game - a much needed expansion for the Hungarian army list! Together with Judson, they go over what first drew them to their Hungarian addiction. After, they delve into a bit of the research involved in uncovering additional units for the nation, and how the history made its way onto the page. Be warned - listening to this episode will probably compel you to start a heavily-mustachioed new army!
