Duncan, Eddie and Lee return with another episode of Shoot and Scoot to talk about what they have been painting in “Faces, Bases Something and Something”, gush about actually rolling some dice courtesy of a friend with a large barn, and froth about Bagration Soviets and the new “World War III – the complete starter set”.
00:01:30 – Okay, we had to defer the “You and Whose Army” segment to next show as this episode was getting too big! Apologies
Faces, Bases, Something, Something

00:04:15 – Duncan also prepped for the big game by painting his Dianas and Russian guns for his 90th Light.
00:05:45 – We talk about the big game at friend of the show Mike Everest’s barn! We also talk Fog of War cards and start thinking about next big battles; Team Yankee! Market Garden! Its all up for grabs.
(00:12:00 – Surprise Hair Dryer drop-pod attack!)
00:26:00 – Brief comms issue with Eddie and then we start talking about Duncan’s painting. DAK and Beutepanzers feature heavily, as do TY Dutch.

00:40:00 – We froth about the IS tank, both the IS-2, IS-85 and the Assault gun ISU-122 and 155s.
00:58:00 – Having scared Duncan enough with the IS series, we take a look at *medium* and light SP battery.
