Hello,

I listened to the podcast this morning as I was putting together a bunch of minis before work. I really enjoyed the interview with Wayne it was interesting to hear how things work at Battlefront.

I would like to hear more about your campaigns. My club ran one Bagration Firestorm campaign and we are currently running a homebrew Firestorm game based on Operation Brevity ( http://creasey.ca/omg/brevity/brevity.html ). I would also like to hear more about making bocage.

The info about stopping assaults from tanks with top armour 0 was also useful, if a bit disappointing (my armoured jeeps in my US Para list have been "abusing" this rule to great effect). It would be handy if you could list the page number for these rules (on the website if not in the podcast).

I think the man-packed gun rule actually works reasonably well. It encourages you to "hide" your MGs amongst your infantry. I still occasionaly take a big HMG unit with my Soviets if I know I will be on the defensive (i.e. in a campaign game).

Episode 7 was the best one yet. Good mix of rules, aar, roundtable, and review talk. I look forward to seeing/hearing tutorials for beginners.

Great podcast.
Next an interview with Evan? ;)
Compared to Podhammer..You guys rock. You are so much better.
Oh and you probably don't know about all those special beers we have here in the Netherlands.

indierockclimber said...

Thanks Hein! Evan is on the radar, but it will probably be sometime next year. We also hope to get Phil on the show.

Yeah, I am far from a beer aficionado. One day I hope to come visit the Netherlands- maybe you can show me some delicious beer!

Not really, just a silly look at where we record

Hein said...

Just something that came to mind. When you will have a next interview with one of the BF people. Announce it ahead of time and let people send in questions.
Just a thought.

Great show guys. I really enjoyed it. I concur with better than Podhammer. I listened to the 1 show that was posted on the BF website. It wasn't bad, but I can do without all the swearing.
