The latest episode sees me celebrating the Silver Jubilee for the Podcast, 25 episodes and counting ! The top link will take you to the blog post the second direct to the Podcast.

My guest is one of my oldest Wargaming friends and the picture above is from the mid 1980s and we are setting up a 15mm refight of Leipzig.

Stephen has "grown up" to be a Historian, Author and Battlefield Guide, after a long break he returned to Wargaming last year so we have plenty to talk about.

Hope you enjoy it.

Regards Ken

Ah those heady days when I had hair! As usual while wargaming, looking  pensive and racked with indecision  lol

Another excellent podcast Ken!  :)

Nice one, thanks for taking the time & effort to make these.

I've been working my way through your backlog of podcasts, as I'm always late to the party...really enjoyed the interviews with Simon Miller (although he would hate my basing style! lol) and Stephen Wold (nice to hear another Aussie...but especially enjoyed your chat about painting).

Whatever it is, your enthusiasm for bigger battles must be catching on, because my pile of painted 100YW/Medieval 1/72 figures just keeps growing and growing. As I look at my collection now, I'm thinking 'more is not enough'  ;D

All the best.

Cheers Ken

Hi Crafty, thanks very much for those kind words, I love to hear why people enjoy certain episodes, there's more Aussie content coming soon  :)

My apologies on the increasing size of your armies, you're not the first one to blame me  lol

It might have been Stephen. The others not in the picture are Conrad and Dave. I have a feeling it was Conrad.
