Bolt Action - LRDG Podcast Episode 17, Hungarian Special
In this special episode of the LRDG we experiment with focusing on one nation and attempting to cover everything you need to know to field it in Bolt Action: it's WW2 history, collecting the miniatures and then some crunchy listing ideas for getting it on the tabletop. The focus this episode is on a lesser known topic, the Royal Hungarian Army. Old Man Morin is joined by Anfernee and Bryan as they cover Germany's 2nd largest Eastern front ally, which at it's peak fielded nearly 1 million men under arms and fought in some of the most bloody battles of the infamous Eastern Front. We are also joined by a special guest from the UK, Bob Emmerson of 'Mad' Bob miniatures. He has some exciting news for anyone looking for Hungarian AFV's!
So, if you don't know the difference between your Toldi's and Zrinyii's then get listening.
Note: We are not historians or experts in anyway, just some amateurs with a passion for history and toy soldiers. So, we apologise in advance for any incorrect historical facts or pronunciation of names and places.
