Duncan, Eddie and Lee return with another episode of Shoot and Scoot, the Flames of War and Team Yankee (plus whatever catches our interest) podcast to talk about what they have been up to in “Faces, Bases, Something and Something”, what we have been playing in “News from the front”, froth about the Bulge: American book and answer your questions in “An Officer Answers”.

You and Whose Army – Bagration Flat Panzer Special
An Officer Answers
01:11:00 – Martin asks “Lets ask the obvious does the Panther have any future in competitive gaming lists?”
01:17:00 – Battleraizer asks “Given how important terrain is to the game, what do you think about the idea of having official, fixed map layouts, akin to your Competitive Starcraft maps etc.”
01:21:30 – Vick asks “Which is your favourite piece of terrain? Mine is the indestructible straw hut. A tank cant knock it down, arty does nothing to it, bulletproof up to 6+Peak architectural engineering right there.”
01:26:15 – Iain asks “Tom Hanks comes you to and says he has funding for a big budget Band of Brothers style miniseries. The problem is he can’t figure out what it should be about. He’s asking for your help, and this time the unit can be from any nation! Which unit do you choose and why?”
01:32:30 – Michael asks “Given the points premium that has been placed on speed in V4, the iconic T-34/76 has not seen much use, even before lockdown. Lend-lease tanks have been more popular as long as I can remember, especially the Sherman in V3. *shudder*.
What would you change in the rules to make them more appealing? Anything besides the price? (I do believe the T-34/85 will see more use with the regular Tankovy Battalion available in Bagration. Loads of AT12.)”
Rob asks “Last year Battlefront came up with some Solo missions. Have you played them? Which did you find the most fun? Did you win? Great Show Chaps!”
Quentin asks “With Bagration German being released, as well as the associated campaign pack, do you think that club gaming nights can adequately be replaced by an organized series of campaign games played one on one at people’s homes. Is it as much fun? Or, to use a word which would make my third grade teacher roll over in her grave, would it be funner?
As always, gents. Great job on the podcast. You, too, Fez! Don’t want you to feel left out!”
01:39:10 – Cilla asks: “German SS tactics, infantry mainly as the 9th unit card soon adds up. So is it worth upgrading to the hit on 4s or are the points spent better elsewhere?”
01:40:00 – Vincent asks “Regarding recon, what is the best option:
- the cheapest you can get?
- a recon that can also shoot or do something useful?
- recon is for looser?
How many platoon do you usually take?”
01:47:45 – Bill asks “How many BMP-3s is too many BMP-3s in a 105 point list? What would you rather have in a list, 3 T-80s or 4 Hinds and 4 SU-25s?”
01:52:40 – Bill also asks “How do you deal with a tournament opponent that’s just a general dick (no pun intended)? ETA: Asking for a friend.”
01:55:35 – Seb Smith asks “New to TY, I’m currently putting together an M3 cav list with M1A1s. Am I going to get a fair shake of the sauce bottle? Or am I better off looking at M2 mech?
Cheers and keep up the good work Fez”
02:02:10 – Jacob asks “If hetzers are gonna hetz and people are all about that Stug life, how do you guys see the humble Panzer IV being useful in the new Bagration book?”
2:04:45 – William asks “Why do you think Battlefront dropped various nation’s towed 150 and 155mm guns from Flames of War and do you think they will ever come back? Maybe in the form of an upgrade card like the American 4.2” chemical mortars?”
2:08:40 – We discuss Warfare and what the Bunshop guys are up to at Battlefield Hobbies
Shoot and Scoot (and Hidden Track)
2:10:50 – Its another custom dice from Dice of War as we get a bit narcissistic and self-indulgent.
