    Here’s my question: to whom will the assorted Meeples presenters be bequeathing their figures/terrain/boardgames when they leave this world for Valhalla? And is it the same person or persons who they will bless/curse with their lead mountains?

    Question…Having recently bought a stack load of Heroes of Normandie boxes and playing the first few missions I discovered Heroes of Normandie had a PC adaptation. ( both thanks to Mr Hobbs) Its a really good representation of the game, it’s so good in fact it has made me feel that I can’t be bothered to get the board game out and just play the PC version. Do you enjoy PC/Android/iOS versions of board games or do you find them to stunt or inhibit your enjoyment of the physical games you own?

    Congratulations on 10 years of podcasting goodness. I’ve recently gone back and relistened to a lot of the original wispering Neil Shuck episodes and they are to me as relevant today as they were 10 years ago. The podcasts have evolved tremendously over time and are now a professional sounding and highly regarded addition to the wargaming and boardgaming scene. The information and the advice has been invaluble over the years and for that I personally am really grateful. Here’s to another 10 years

  4. I discovered Meeples & Miniatures at Episode 9 (the Zombie Special) and have enjoyed every episode since (and downloaded the previous ones very quickly) and even won a rules-set once. A great show getting better all the time. Thanks Neil and all the co-host.

    Congratulations for your tenth anniversary. I’ve been following your podcasts over a year now, mainly while painting during the weekends. My only request would be: guys sometimes you speak too fast and all at the same time and some of us although with good level of English are not native, so it’s diffciult to follow you. I won’t comment on some of the jokes (impossible to follow) because it’s part of the show. In any case, many-many thanks indeed for the effort, troves of useful info about games and a great way of keeping me updated on the hobby trends. Keep the good work!

  6. Well done Neil & Co! Been with you from the start and still listening. Now…how can you get Henry on more often? Bribes? OK, what’s his favourite poison? He’s stopped drinking? How about cake? (No that won’t work…I think we know why…) Something else? A free 12-month subscription for Miniature Wargames? No? Really? Something else then…I’ll leave it with you…put your heads together and make it happen!

  7. Hi Guys, love the podcast, it has helped enormously in getting through many a long summer job. As a young wargamer on the bald open paries of Canada (Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada that is), their arnt a whole ton of resources out here. I can’t say I actually no any other wargamers and the VAST majority of the population has never even heard of the hobby. Their is one freindly local hobby shop, they mostly carry just classic airfix figures and models. I have an extremely limited budget and most wargames materials (eg, terrain, books) cost a fortune to ship, let alone pay for the exchange rate on blarney British pounds. If thier is any advice you can offer me on how to grow a hobby I have. Fallen in love with that past for years that would be awsome.

    I discovered M&M in summer 2009 when life was at a very low ebb – the podcast became a new avenue of interest and excitement that helped me get through some dark days. It has eversince been something i look forward to and enjoy. Thank you Neil for all the hardwork, and thankyou to the rest of the crew for helping broaden the show. It really is like being down the pub with some mates talking about our shared hobby. Keep doing what you’re doing.

    #M&M10year Wow, Ten Years! How’d that happen? I was recently re-playing the ‘Ice Flow’ boardgame – It hardly seems a day since you were talking about it on the podcast! Thanks for all the hard work, always perfect for painting to or doing chores.

  10. Congratulations on a fantastic achievement Neil. 10 years of doing anything like podcasting or blogging is an amazing feat, especially with the regularity and quality you’ve put out there. I’ve been listening from the start. Other podcasts have appeared and vanished off my radar, but M&M is the only one I still listen to on a regular basis. You’ve managed to appeal to just about everyone (I’m an American, who likes fantasy, dark ages, and medieval wargaming), which is very tough to do.

    My question for you is this: You’ve reviewed and played countless games over that 10 year span. If you could only choose 5 war games to play from that lot (any genre, any scale, including board games), which 5 games would you pick?

    PS: I would pick SAGA, Lion Rampant, HeroScape, and Sword of Severnia (a card and chip driven fantasy mass battle game I’m personally developing). And I’m waffling on #5 right now!

  11. Thank you, love your podcast, well done on ten years. Tell me what games do you still play from 20 years ago or 30 years ago?
    Full Thrust and Settlers of Catan I have heard mentioned on some recent podcasts.
    Hope to listen to your podcast for the next 10 years and beyond.
    Thank you
