In this show, I review Battleground Historical Warfare, the new wargame from Your Move Games, and I interview Chad Ellis of YMG about the development process behind the game.

I also chat about the Blood Bowl computer game, plus the usual podcast and gaming news.

5 Comments on Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 53

  1. Decided to post on the BGG guild boards!

  2. Excellent review and interview this month, Neil. Keep up the great work!

  3. The In Depth Review is one of my favorite parts of the show. The previous reviews of Impetus and Basic Impetus were the main reason for my return to ancient wargaming.
    I think that somewhere was said that would be a In Depth Review of Cold War Commander. Any hope of that for the future? As an ex modern wargamer I was looking for something simpler than Challenger 2000!
    Thanks for the great shows.

    • Hi

      Really glad that you like the in-depth reviews – it is one of the most popular parts of the show.

      Cold War Commander – yes, I am going to do a review of this game system, but I’m waiting for BKC II to come out so that I can review all three games together. This is due out in November, so hopefully the end-of-November show will have this review.


  4. I’ve only just got round to finishing listening to this podcast, Neil — I was particularly impressed by your review with Chad Ellis. Extremely interesting, and I was particularly fascinated about the discussion of fantasy players happily taking on historical armies with orcs and suchlike! As a dyed-in-the-wool historical gamer who occasionally plays fantasy, it would never have occurred to me to do this, which I suppose is revealing in itself…
