Dano and Judson get back to their roots in this special edition of BoltAction.net's very own Speakeasy. These two northeastern "gentlemen" throw the original shop down over Dano's upcoming Conquest (LRDG!) list, break into some new-plane chatter, and end up arguing with each other before the end - just like the old school BARbarians are used to! Enjoy this blast from the past half as much as Dano enjoyed the Jameson, and you'll be entertained!

In a generally goofy episode, the boys are back - including Steven!  After some genral chatter about painting queues ans Historicon, talk centers around the Italy compliation - more talk of lists and what to play.

Return of the Jedi!

In Act I, the guys welcome Steven back and jump right into a recap of recent activity.  The guys discuss the upcoming WWPD4Vets event and the next WWPD Global Campaign - Italy!  There is also some brief discussion on the new WWPD Rankings system.

In Act II, the guys talk more detail about Fortress Italy and Road to Rome, including opinions on top lists.  The guys - again - predict what will be seen at the next tournament, and will most assuredly be wrong!  Next, Eric talks a bit about running historical scenarios.

For Act III, Eric talks about how to customize your tournament, and encourages TOs to make adjustments to enhance the fun.  We close this episode out with Commonly Forgotten rules.

Welcome back, BARbarians, for episode twenty-two of Bolt Action Radio. Cbax, the good Captain TO, and the newly-crowned, Dark Lord of Hate and Evil, Chris Hecht join Judson for a round at The BAR. Starting things off is a quick rundown of the tournaments at Cold Wars. (Those of you with premium access heard different coverage last week.) Next up, the guys talk about their initial reactions to the optional air power rules recently released, before CBax delves deeply into his brand new, unofficial, and very popular, Ethiopian army list. Captain TO mentions that Lieutenant TO bought a Lamborghini with the money he made at Cold Wars, as well!

In Episode 8 of the Outpost 309 podcast, our heroes bring back GameMaster extraordinaire Alex, and go in depth with two RPGs.  The first is Mindjammer, a brand new game with a sci-fi setting, based off the Fate rules.  Next up is a good hard look at Fantasy Flight's Edge of the Empire, in which strengths, weaknesses, and overall quality are discussed.  Family game of the podcast is a simple little fantasy dice game called Dungeon Roll, and a new videogame called Banished demands your money.  Check it out, and make sure to leave some comments on the forum!

In Act 2 we look at the current tournament meta, bring in our new section the Mail Bag, cover some over looked rules and talk about "when do you point out a mistake your opponent has made?" (in Adam's case never!).

 

In Act 3 we help Andy out with his list for The Art of War (this does turn into a petty competition between the 3 of us!) and round out the episodes by looking at some new lists ideas for Ben and Adam.

Judson, Dano, and their special guests from the LRDG have a big announcement to make, and talk big things for the future. Later on, things get rowdy as the Boys of Bolt Action talk about Cancon and a certain, recent, hot button forum topic. While every attempt was made to reign in the language, please be warned that an occasional bit of vulgarity sneaks its way into the normally civilized discourse you've come to expect at The BAR. Listener discretion is advised!
