  1. Listener Tristan said about Episode 137: Great Facebook Groups for Wargamers “Games and Theory for current GW stuff, Star Trek Attack Community (for guess what…), Oldhammer for old school GW stuff, The Horus Heresy painting and modelling group (Forgeworld staff appear regularl here and give out amazing tips for painting and modelling.)”
  2. Listener & Patreon Supporter Jamie from Norway sent a photo of a work in progress and said “Lots of work in progress here, but I thought you’d like to see that my auction win last year is starting to get some friends and enemies. These are two (not all models in shot) small Muskts & Tomahawks forces for recreating Sharpe from the book series fighting in the Peninsular War. :)”

I’m stunned and terribly saddened to hear of the passing of longtime listener Andrew. He helped to give the show the name Wargaming Recon. Andrew was a kind soul who selflessly gave of himself to help those around him. Despite being legally blind he taught children how to wargame.

Wargaming Recon has lost a good friend in his passing. I ask all listeners to join me in a moment of silence in Andrew’s honor.
