In Bolt Action Radio, Episode Thirty, Nemesis Andy, Dano de los Danos and Judddson both take off and return from another glorious Fall-In trip. Tune in and listen to the tournament report that avoids giving you a turn-by-turn, roll-by-roll snoozefest and instead focuses on the big picture. Do armored platoons fit in well in the standard reinforced platoon scene? Do the scenarios still work well when treads are trundling across four-by-six foot battlefields? Are super-heavy guns over-powered? (Ha.) This and much more gets tossed about in the latest episode of BAR. 

Nov 25, 2014

The WWPD Fellowship returns for episode 3! After an action-packed AAR the gang dives into Celembrimbor's Secret, Solo vs. Group Questing, and some personal breakthrough moments.

They get a bit of last minute Fall-In discussion in before making a special announcement that's probably going to cause a stir. Later on, Captain TO jumps in to bring everyone up to speed on what they can expect at one of his events - specifically Fall-In '14 - and any time the good Captain comes on, it's a valuable listen for anyone that runs their own events.

Finally the guys also take a closer look at the Armies of Great Britain book and talk through their favourite units and units that they love to hate. 

 
Though we are notorious for loose talk and imbibing tasty beverages, we in the LRDG take substance abuse very seriously.  The music featured in the introduction and conclusion of this episode is provided, by old friends of the cast, "The Friendship Commanders." You can find more information about the band on their website provided below. "Them Bones" is their annual Halloween cover tune. All proceeds from the sale of this song goes to charity organisations that help those who are battling addiction. They also have a rad cover of The Ramones tune "Pet Cemetery." Money from that song will also be donated to similar charities. We highly encourage you to check these guys out and that you help them support those in need.
