Author Topic: Wargames "Scales" discussed on this week's Madaxeman Podcast  (Read 280 times)

This week the podcast that recently triggered a discussion about how much wargame figures should cost shamelessly attempts to trigger another discussion about the wild inconsistencies of wargames "scales", this time as part of our new regular weekly (tongue firmly in cheek) feature "<strong>I'm Sorry, I  Think You're an Ar**</strong>" featuring a fully motivated Adam who approaches the delicate subject of "wargames figure scales" with much the same finesse as a WW2-vintage quad 20mm AA half track might bring to the art of making an omlette.

There is also a whole slew of actual proper wargaming podcast-type content, including a discussion about how to cheat when painting tartan, Danish infantry coat colours, whether hobbits featured in the ACW, as well as a first look at the new O Group rules, a quick flirt with how to make money selling rats on eBay, what basing might look like in ADLG v4, the merits of waterslide vs LBMS transfers, and a chat about how big Victrix horses (and specifically their ar**s) actually are.
 
Normal service is resumed too as we get onto the topic of identifying suspicious badgers when they are in ambush, in a section in which Adam uses his newfound knowledge of honey badgers to make his pitch to replace David Attenborough in the BBC presenter roster. We also discuss gearing up for competitions again, how to buy cycle wheels succesfully, whether "Tirpitzness" is best as an adjective or an adverb, and how to paint eyes on small scale figures.
 
The aftermath of ISITYAA this week rather leaves Andy's Quiz somewhat floundering as a quivering wreck on the floor, with Andy barely capable of coming up with a subject matter for this week's question. Instead he simply mutters the gnomic phrase "Words" before sloping off back into his techno dungeon in the heart of the French undergound Le Disco scene once again.

I'll give your podcast a listen - sounds fun.  lol

I started one up on Saga gaming here in the Ohio area of the US. Let me know if you're interested at all and I'll post a link.

Always good to have links to gaming stuff IMO, especially if LAF members have created it
