Host Jonathan J. Reinhart releases the inaugural Wargaming Recon episode.
Dispatches from HQ (or should I say Despatches from HQ) kicks off the show. Henry Hyde’s forthcoming book The Wargaming Compendium (searching Barnes & Nobles website will know show the book, please use the link I provide) is discussed. Pre-order troubles with both Amazon and Barnes & Noble are highlighted.
Basing materials, spackle and wood filler, are reviewed and discussed. Examples of their use with Flames of War infantry bases are given. The Art of War book by Battlefront is cited as a good reference source. Modelling discussions continue with a review of Army Painter Quick Shade. Jonathan used a Perry Miniatures American War of Independence mounted infantry officer as a test for this product. Please see Army Painter Quick Shade and Army Painter Quick Shade 2 – Infantry for pictures and a detailed review.
The Total Con Contest is announced. Winners can receive FREE passes to TotalCon 26. One winner will get 1 FREE weekend pass. Three lucky winners will each get 1 FREE day pass.
The Mail Bag opened to reveal e-mails from Harry Peless who listens to the show while raking leaves. Finally, Black Powder is again mentioned. Jonathan, Cort N., and Adrian B. will be running Daybreak at Hangman’s Creek, a 15mm ACW scenario, at Total Con. More play-testing will be held on November 5th at 2pm, at Battleground Games & Hobbies in Abington. Please see our Facebook event for further information.
