An Officer Answers

00:57:00 – Battleraizer asks “As a more experienced player, how would you conduct yourself during a game with a newer player? Should you subtly throw the game to encourage him? Outright rekt him with sound gameplay strats & tacts? Take the chance to play weird janky experimental stuff?”

01:04:00 – Roy asks “How do you go about building a themed/historic list? In other systems where you have one army list for a faction you can go all mounted, artillery heavy, if it’s 28mm you can also paint a unique theme. If I look at my Mid War US Rifle company, they had a maximum of 12 * 37mm guns, not a limit that is really going to affect me. Trying to paint a Red 1 on a shoulder will end badly. Do you just pick a battle and hope the size is suitable for a FoW force?”

01:05:55 – Darren asks “Year is half over. How have your hobby goals gone so far, and what are your plans for the rest of 2021? What are you most looking forward to?”

01:11:50 – William asks “What favorite lists, and units, are you hoping to see in the new Bulge books? Do you think that Market-Garden will be rolled into them or be a future campaign series of books? Me… I am really hoping to see a US Combat Engineer Company list that can actually lay booby traps and such. It was the first army I built and lead me to read several books about “Those Damn Engineers!”

01:15:30 – Craig asks “Do you think a Romainian T4 horde is a viable list. At 4 points a pop, a full company of cheap AT11 tanks sounds like a fairly competitive list to me.”

01:17:25 – Bill asks “It appears Eddie and I share a hobby problem. I paint things half way sometimes and then start painting something else. Is this as bad as Duncan makes it sound? It wasn’t too bad until I started painting three different 28mm eras.” and “Also I started painting TY Soviets in March. I’ve painted 76 vehicles, 14 infantry teams, 12 RPG teams, 3 Gremlin teams, 4 PKM teams, 1 spigot, and 1 grenade launcher team. Am I there yet?”

01:20:10 – Alex asks “This gets brought up from time to time, but I wanted to know your guys opinion on Mid War Monsters. Is this something we’ll see again? On a similar note, when BF finishes Late War, what are the odds we’ll see alternative history, a la Team Yankee?”

01:22:50 – Mike asks “31st of July at the Big Barn, what are you guys taking for 100pt armies?”

01:24:30 – Rob asks “What are your favourite films to paint to whilst watching and have they inspired your collecting? I like ‘The Longest Day’ though this has led me to accidentally painting 6 Airlanding, 29th Infantry, 82nd Airbourne, 21st panzer and FFI for the 2ème brigade blindée. Although 2ème brigade blindée weren’t in ‘The Longest Day’ I watched ‘Paris is Burning’ and accidents happen. Thanks for the show youre Great!”

01:26:50 – Søren asks “Looking at the lists for the SSF tournament this summer and the low cost of the tiny tanks in Axis Allies are we coming back to the spam armies full of armoured cars and light tanks of MW? If yes, what kind of list is the best counter to a AC or light tank list?
When painting, do you guys keep a painting “diary” so you always can go back and see how you did a certain unit or do you embrace the 50 shades of green approach?
If you should rank the currently available LW nation, from best to worst what would be your list?”

01:38:00 – Stuart asks “Have Battlefront made a mistake by making PakFront 88’s more preferable than Pak40’s? As the PaK40 is supposed to be the standard AT gun.”

01:47:30 – Michael asks “How long until a Wheel of Focussed Refocus is needed for the Wheel of Refocus for the Wheel of Focus?”

01:49:15 Ben asks “What would be the best support for a Puma Recce Company for competitive play (other than the almost mandatory PakFront/Assault Flak 88s)?”

Events

01:49:45 – We talk about the Joy of Six tournament and Salute as well as Warfare (now sold out).
