Welcome to Beyond The Foxholes Episode 10.
We join Ben, Winner Dave, Adam and special guest Andy as they talk all things Flames of War.
In Act 1 the guys talk about what they have been up to, look at the latest news from Battlefront and cover our own tournament Breakthrough Assault 2.
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.
The guys talk about their Cold Wars experience, including the Flames of War doubles tournament, the Bolt Action tournament and general gaming. There is news about the housing subscription, the Italy book and WWPD4Vets. Special guest Ed Leland discusses his Soviet list in detail and give some thoughts on the resurgence of the Russian Bear!
Craig and TO make their first trip to the Speakeasy and sit down with Judson for some shop talk. Baxter's latest ventures into historical scenarios kick things off, followed by hobby updates, and an in-depth look at Captain TO's newest scenarios for Cold Wars. After the break, the guys take the opportunity to make fun of Judson's flip-flopping approach to the US Marines. The upcoming armored book is discussed, as well as the Warlord Games price increase, before wrapping things up with a preview of CBax's huge Ethiopia project for Bolt Action.
Eric, Jon and Luke cover everything you ever wanted to know about Dust Up.
The LRDG are back with a full cast! Lachlan returns from his mansard imprisonment, the boys talk history and generally cover lots of crunch! Lots of guest appearances by the crew! Tune in, Wild Turkeys!
