Henry Hyde comes back on the show for his third appearance. Henry talks about his book the Wargaming Compendium, wargaming, and what he’s been up to.
In a special segment after the show Henry and Jonathan discuss Jonathan’s Ancient Rome inspired imagi-nation campaign the War of Latinian Expansion. Jonathan is blending computer gaming with traditional tabletop gaming.
He used the Plastic Soldier Review website to choose his 1/72 scale HaT Industrie models and 1/72 scale Caesar Miniatures. The HaT models cost under $10 USD for almost 50 infantry from the Hobby Bunker in Malden, Mass (or their online storefront). Caesar Miniatures’ boxes are only slightly higher at $11.95 for 40+ infantry also from the Hobby Bunker.
During the show Jonathan mentions the controversial Episode 113: Are Painted Minis Essential to Miniatures Wargaming? and Henry surprises Jonathan with his thoughts on the topic.
Before the show concludes Jonathan makes a VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. His wife and he are expecting their first child! The baby is due the beginning of February 2015. Jonathan looks forward to having a little one to introduce to the hobby.
