A Few Brits and the Hobby

Join Carl, Piers and Andy, as they take take a conversational ramble through military history. Each episode will see the crew, and sometimes a guest , discuss a campaign, battle, period or operation through a huge array of periods, though we do like to talk about the Second World War especially, (And ancient Rome when Andy gets his way). The show follows a broad conversation on the topic, followed by a general discussion of modelling and gaming the period, and how to bring the subject to life on your wargames table. So join the boys for a few hours of sometimes rambling, sometimes insightful and, hopefully, sometimes entertaining episode with 'A few Brits and the hobby'.
