Yarkshire Gamer Talks Big Game Napoleonics
« on: February 19, 2022, 12:38:43 PM »






Hi Everyone,

Just to let you know that the next Episode of the Yarkshire Gamers Reet Big Wargames Podcast is out on audio.

It's been a great month with me being nominated in the Caesar Awards in the Best Podcast Section, on top of that today is the Podcasts Birthday 🎂  We are one today ! Still teething, throwing tantrums and spitting unwanted food out, so no change there 😉

My guest for this show is Gerry Elliot who many of you will know from his 17 years at the Wargames Holiday Centre. I caught up with him and chatted about the old days as well as his current wargaming.

Gerry has built a magnificent collection of 10mm figures in huge quantities (over 100,000 Miniatures) in Napoleonics and WW2. The units themselves are a joy to behold with some of them having nearly 200 figures in ! See the pictures below of his Situation Room to see what I mean.

You can access the podcast via any major Podcast Host, just search for Yarkshire Gamers Reet Big Wargames Podcast, I can guarantee you will only get one result, or click on the link below to take you to my blog which has relevant links on for the episode and Gerrys own blog which tells the everyday story of wargaming heaven

Sit back with a cup of Yarkshires finest Tea and enjoy.

Regards Ken

Look at all those minis!  :-*

Reminds me of my first wargame club, long time ago. We could field 3 Corps in 15 mm on either side, on top of a ping pong table.

We set up games a number of times, but never finished a single one.  lol

My guest has over 100,000 minis which is definitely a WoW !

I just love the spectacle of a Big Game whatever the scale.

Thanks for listening

None of these diddy skirmish games with 50 figure armies! Cannot beat a good proper man sized battle, especially with my new 20 x 8 table.
