View from the Veranda Episode 9 out now

Neil Shuck over at Meeples & Miniatures has now released Episode 9 of our not-even-vaguely regular podcast, the View from the Veranda. Ideal for those who like to listen to something on the way to and from work, or whilst painting small soldiers, or even to help them to nod off to sleep, this episode of the podcast rambles hither and thither as usual, covering topics as diverse as the ‘game in a box’ concept, Dark Ages wargaming, Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with A Thousand Faces and Mantic Games.

This time, we’re joined by lovely Rich Clarke of TooFatLardies who provides the intelligent counterpoint to our normal, ill-considered views and avoidance of Points Systems.

So, get yourself over to View from the Veranda and plug yourself in for a couple of hours.


  1. Henry,

    Dear fellow, congrats with keeping your championship belt.
    Even with the fierce competition of Neil himself but foremost with major contender Rich a title well defended.

    Keep practicing and hopefully you will be able to defend your title in next year’s championship event on The Veranda episode 17 (now hows that for wishfull thinking).

    Yours sincerely,
    Rene van den Assem
    Resident of your country’s one time enemy “The Netherlands”

  2. As always Henry, you entertained me with your wit, repartee and general bonhomie. Loved it, and more to the point they actually stand up to repeat listening. So give yourself a big pat on the shoulder for this.

    • Thanks for your kind comment, Ashley — glad you enjoyed it, it was certainly fun to make. As always, the biggest pat on the back should go to Neil who does all the hard work editing our rambling conversations. 🙂
