View from the Veranda now has episode 9 of their podcast online for your listening pleasure. In this episode:

Neil Shuck & Henry Hyde are joined on the Veranda by Richard Clarke (he of Too Fat Lardies fame) to chat about all things wargaming.

The show follows its usual pattern of attempting to follow a theme and failing completely, and we get distracted into a wide range of topics including “Games in a Box”, “What’s so good about the Dark Ages?”, “Why is history boring?” and “How many 40mm Napoleonic figures has Neil actually painted?”

View from the Veranda has episode 8 of their podcast up online for you to listen to.



In this episode:

At long last, Henry and I have managed to record another podcast!

Unsurprisingly, this show is a bit of a catch up. Whilst we do discuss a couple of topics in passing (Salute 2012 & UK wargames shows in general) we mainly concentrate on Battlegames magazine, talikng about the new issue, but also looking back at the events of last year, when the magazine almost folded.

In addition, we also talk about 'The Wargames Compendium', which at time of recording was nearing completion.

Episode 8 of 'View from the Veranda' is available from the VftV website, or you can download it from iTunes.

Episode 6 of the 'View from the Veranda' Podcast has now been published. This is a podcast about the wargames hobby in general, featuring hosts Neil Shuck of the Meeples & Miniatures Podcast, and Henry Hyde, Editor of Battlegames magazine. Yes, after far too long, we’re back…having finally managed to get ourselves on opposite ends of the same piece of technology at roughly the same time. As you may expect, after such a long absence, most of the show is spent catching up on things that have happened since we were last together…so the subject matter is quite wide ranging (no change there then!) Be warned – this is a long show! At 150 (ish) minutes, its the longest we’ve ever recorded, but hopefully that won’t put you off too much. So, pour yourself a glass of something, pull up a chair and join us ‘On the Veranda’ Neil & Henry You can download the show from the Meeples & Miniatures website, or it's available from iTunes from the Meeples & Miniatures feed.
