|In the last couple of days there have been 2 new Madaxeman podcasts ...
There is now a new Army List Building Podcast for Meso American armies at https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-3zu53-feb106 which is also available on YouTube with pictures and stuff at https://t.co/Ttiel21ZkR
THis one is me, Dave & Richard and we venture into the little-visited back of the book to take a gander at the Meso-American armies in an effort to see if we can pick some nuggets of golden Aztec goodness out of these rarely-seen army lists. As usual we conjure up a variety of quite different lists, all of which manage to extract very different and intriguing play styles and approaches from what initially seemed the slim pickings of these later lists. We also skip through the history of the region, consider whether these armies might be viable in open play, and debate if the addition of the Conquistador command to the Texcallans imbalances a pure Meso-American competion army pool.
In a brand new (and I suspect unique) tie-in, some of this week's list are also not only available to view on the Madaxeman Wiki, they are also available to buy in the form of ready-made, discounted army packs from UK-based manufacturer Fighting 15's. Yes, hear the discussion then - if you like what you hear - there's now a simple one-click way for you to pick up 4 of the lists we cover all for under £40 a pop for 128 figures (thats just 31p each for those of you who don't like taking off your socks this early in the year) at : https://fighting15s.com/product-category/gladiator-miniatures/mega-packs/adlg-mega-packs/adlg-aztecs-enemies-packs/
The list we cover this week are:
The usual "CLWC 7" chat and banter weekly soap-opera-cum-podcast is at https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-9g6k3-fe96b8 - this week's Episode is called Humbrol Beginnings as in this weeks episode of ISITYAA I try and make the case that the venerable Humbrol Paint tin is in fact the one and only true solution to the modern wargaming worlds slow subsumation into the iron grip of grasping corporate interests. It's also a rather lite painting week in which we are all rather distracted by the announcement of ADLG v4 coming out in the next few weeks, but even so Peters hussar-wing-glue debacle rolls on, Tamsin makes an accidental company-level purchase of WW2 Artizan Designs paratroops almost without conscious human intervention, the Perry Twins make another £20 from Adam with those black-undercoated medieval horsemen, Pitshanger Lane gets a double visitation, Dave's Magic Drawer of Left-Over Xyston Wonderment makes an initial bid for it's own theme tune and dedicated in-pod feature, Museum's Z-range get close enough to lose a little bit of detail and a flurry of Macedonians hit their bases at various points alongside the M40 elevated section.
In between this excitement we somehow manage also to fit in a quick session of "What are you hoping to find in ADLG v4 Santa's sack this Easter?", and Andy's Quiz seeks to pull itself away from it's recent obsession with making "tug" gags with a whole new set of questions (and answers) for your delight and delectation.
