Dano and Judson get after it again, this time diving head-first into the Armies of Germany book. They also go over an upcoming Bolt Action tournament (Cold Wars!) before Dano absolutely tears into Judson's Commonwealth list. In between, Dano breaks into song, waxes philosophical, and at least once reverts to Olde English. Episode Six is like watching The Hobbit!

This one's a Doozy!  We discuss "Recreational Outrage".  Careful, this may tread into some territory that may offend for real!  If you can't handle "sensitive Holiday topics" being discussed- best avoid this one!  It's After Hours baby, anything goes!

Dec 21, 2012

Steven is back from New Zealand, and the dudes all get a chance to catch up!  The first audio interview with Jeff from Battlefront is in the middle of the episode.  It was recorded via a phone interview, so bear with us on the audio quality!  In Act III Steven talks about the Battlefornt Office and gives some general impressions before the videos start making their appearance!

Dano and Judson get Alessio Cavatore to show up at The BAR - and man, turns out Alessio is a great guy to hang at The BAR with! Afterwards, the guys talk about Fall-In, the BoltAction.Net Painting Contest, and a tournament happening in Australia. You can't have a night at The BAR without a little Shop Talk. In this episode, the boys talk about how wrong their impressions and ideas from the week before were, then give you more truisms that will be utterly false next week!

In the second episode of Know the Mission, the dudes put "Defensive Battles" under the microscope.  We primarily talk about "No Retreat", but include "Hold the Line" and "Pincer" in there as well, thanks to their similarities.


Editor's note: I (Steven) mention Pincer having 2 ambushes.  It only has one!  Sorry!

Nov 11, 2012

The boys are live at Fall In 2012!  We talk The Flames of War I-95 Doubles tournament, Bolt Action, Saga, X-Wing, Battlestar Galactica and a lot more!  Stick around for the 2nd part of the show as we decompress on our drive home!

The guys talk tournament lists for Fall In, a follow up to the Artemis, and generally shoot the breeze.  A bit crunchier than the last few- which were straight up silly!  We most explain some list ideas and the thought processes behind them.

Sep 26, 2012

Editor's note: Made a change to the naming format so it fits into the app better!  In this episode we are very lucky to be joined by Rick Priestley!  If you don't know who he is, google him now- you probably like something he's done!  We are joined with Judson to talk some Bolt Action before rounding out the episode by discussing some tactics around setting up assaults in Flames of War.

The episode starts with some real discussion, but quickly devolves into ridiculousness as the dudes make plans for "The Artemis" AKA- a crummy Winnebago!  Will it ever happen?  Probably not, but the planning is hilarious to listen in on.  Before that, the guys talk about "Red vs Blue", themed events, and general "tournament running" ins and outs.

Sep 17, 2012

Assault Cats ho!  The fellas have a bunch to report in the AAR.  The NOVA Open, Dropzone Games, Descent, and more!  Steven gives an overview of Bolt Action, followed by some discussion on airplanes and Assault Guns.

As you know, I really like recording in the car!  It makes for good, natural conversation, and it's the kind of chats you're probably having to and from gaming events as well!  In this, the first episode in a new "freemium" series, Tom and I are returning from the NOVA Open 2012.  We recorded our trip up where I discussed Bolt Action in depth, but it didn't turn out so you only get one way this time- sorry!  We love Tom, but he isn't named "Mad Dog de Mayo" for nothing- be wary that our language can get a bit "colorful" at times.  Children shouldn't be listening to us ANYWAYS, but consider this extra warning!  Let us know what you guys think of the format by sounding off on our forum!

Sep 3, 2012

Really silly episode that runs the gamut!  We talk Winnebagos, the WWPD crew as Scooby Doo characters, Buseymouth, plus some real discussion on why we think Mid War is so popular.  If you haven't tried After Hours yet, this is a good one to jump in on!

Sep 3, 2012

We've 42 episodes behind us and there's nowhere to go but forward!  We have a lot of games we've played recently to discuss, in addition to Anatoli's newer September Campaign pdf!  We also discuss the rules for Combat attachments and Kampfgruppe.  The episode gets rounded out with a discussion on German Tank Hunters, and Jon's book review on "Origins of the 2nd World War".

  • 0:00- ACT I: Intro, AAR, General Goofery
  • 0:58- ACT II: The September Campaign, Combat Attachments and Kampfgruppe

This is a good, long, meaty one!  I mean the episode!  Of course, we're all fired up as usual to talk meat and potatoes in Flames of War.  Lots of list discussion, with a heavy focus on Panthers in the late late war meta game.  

Jon's wife is a Mojito expert.  This episode of After Hours brought to you by some sweet sweet mint.  

Aug 17, 2012

The gents are back!  Steven and Luke talk about their recent experience at Guns of August, Jon brings Steven a few Mojitos back from Aruba, we talk about Bolt Action .Net, and our new premium episode "Know the Mission!"  But wait!  There's More!  We also talk about the "Ambush" special rule, and Jon covers a book: "The Clay Pigeons of St. Lo".  Talk aout a monster episode!  Make sure to come back for After Hours- it's a good one! 

  • 0:00- ACT I: Intro, AAR
  • 1:14- ACT II: Ambush, Network Partners

The dudes have been wanting to record this for a while, and finally found the time right before Dirty Jon ran off to Aruba to escape his mountain of lead!

In the first episode of Know the Mission, the dudes put "Free For All" under the microscope.  Some of this may be old hat to you veterans out there, but we hope you may find some nugget of wisdom buried somewhere in the ranting and raving!

Jul 25, 2012

The dudes are fairly burnt out after Historicon 2012, but can't help "tawkin' crunchy!".  The guys talk Flames of War, Saga, upcoming events, and other siliness!

Pardon the scampering dogs in the first minute or two.  As with the last half of 41 we were recording outside of the Bunker without our proper equipment!  

Jul 25, 2012

The gentlemen are live at Historicon 2012!  We talk Historicon, Nationals, The Flames of War I-95 tournament, Saga, and a lot more!  Stick around for the 2nd part of the show as the guys decompress and lament how much stuff they bought!

  • 0:00- ACT I: Live from Historicon 2012!
  • 1:12- ACT II: The dudes, still worn out, talk about their growing mountain of lead!
