The Ghost Army Podcast Cancon Warmup 2017 

Listen closely as Patchimus and hobby badass, Andrew Brownrigg go toe to toe in the smacktalking run up to this year’s Cancon event. 

The guys talk about the awesome BA community, national team event that has sprung up and what it means for those wanting to add another element of awesome to their Cancon experience. They also talk about what they are planning on taking this year and what they are looking forward to seeing at Australia’s biggest BA event!
Nov 27, 2017

The guys cover what they will be doing at Fall In and a Stripes review in Act II.  Due to some interference in the space time continuum, Fall In has already happened, but it is still a great episode with lots of information on Team Yankee’s newest release.

Oct 29, 2017

A small hiatus, but we haven't gone away. Just a warning, the last part of this one contains a few swears.

The first bit is all about whats happening in the gaming sphere with new releases and all that jazz. Noob News, that kinda thing.
 
In part 2, we talk about a couple of tournaments we've played in recently here in NZ; FlamesCon 2017 and DanCon 40k.
 
The last part gets a little more serious and possibly controversial as we discuss the current murmurings around female gamers.
Oct 26, 2017

On this new thunderous episode of Why We Fight! The guys start out by talking a little bit about the future of Why We Fight. We then catch up a little bit on what everyone has been up to and what is going to be happening at Fall In. In ACT II, we get into Red Thunder! The guys let us know what they think about the book after playing a few lists from it. Get ready for a little thunder!

Action packed episode after some time off. Mitch and Sean are at Historicon 2017 where they talk about playing in the FoW I-95 doubles tournament and the Team Yankee event they hosted with Battlefront.

The LRDG II podcast is back with an another exciting, two part episode. 

 
In the first segment, I am joined by longtime Ghost Army Podcast member Casey to discuss current hobby projects and the elephant in the room, gaming world wise, Warhammer 40K. We also discuss significant rumours in the Bolt Action and Konflikt '47 world and what it means to be "that guy" when gaming.
 
In part two, the master of Australian TO'ing, the one and only Peter West rejoins the cast to talk about lessons learned from the most recent Wintercon BA event, getting creative with hobby ideas in BA and to discuss how a Very British Civil War and the Operation Sea Lion campaign are similar and how they can be linked to create a rich "what if" backdrop for Bolt Action Gaming.
 
As always we love to hear from you through the LRDG Podcast FaceBook group. A number of you have requested that I separate BA from non-BA content differently. In the future I will put non-Bolt Action content at the end of the episode so it is easier to avoid if that game system is not your thing. That said, if you are looking to hear only BA content, I would suggest tuning into this episode at the 40 minute mark. Thank you to the folks that have sent in this feedback! :)
 
We hope that you enjoy episode 17!
