Mailbag
Prior guests Dean Emmerson and Aaron Bostian found out about this show topic through our Facebook page. They shared their thoughts about the game.

  1. “I had a copy for sale at Huzzah and someone snapped it up. I tried to order a second copy but the distributor was out!”-Dean Emmerson
  2. Aaron asked his FLGS to order him a copy.

We had an outpouring of feedback in response to Episode 113: Are Painted Minis Essential to Miniature Wargaming? People very enthusiastically said painted minis ARE essential. Here are a few of the comments:

  • “Even if you only basecoat your figures, I always maintain that they look far better than bare metal/plastic.”-Shaun
  • “Definitely paint them (no matter how slowly).”-Philip
  • Of not painting minis”…Its like buying a train set and only laying out the track on the living room carpet!”-Richard
