In Bolt Action Radio episode 34, David (UberGruber) joins Judson for the first segment, this time lending voice to walls of text they would normally otherwise post on the forum. David has some format questions, and the two bat current Bolt Action events back and forth from across the Atlantic. Following this, Dano and Judson sidle up to The BAR to review their experiences at Cold Wars 2015 and toss around their usual shop talk. Mentioned in the episode is nws-online.net (thanks again for the huge tournament support) and several other notables! Pull up a stool and have a shop talk with the boys in episode 34!

I've recently added some armoured transports to my French Foreign Legion platoon. The Berliet VUDB carriers were manufactured in the 1930's by France to help police it's North African Colonies, with a limited number fighting in the Second World War. Today they are manufactured by by Mad Bob miniatures in 1:56 scale resin. I'll give you a review of the kit as well as a step by step painting guide.

Last Friday Brad released his new Heartbreak Ridge Mission. We totally dug his first new mission so we busted out this new one for a Bolt Action throw down.

Welcome to the scorching desert of North Africa Bolt Action fans! Recently the LRDG podcast crew got together for a big group game. The 4 of us each fielded a 1250pt army each, so 2500 pts a side! We loosely based the game around the second battle of El Alamein in late 1942, with this sector seeing the Allies (Free French and Australians) taking on the Italian defenders. The result to was too good not to share.

War is often a macabre game of capturing areas of "strategic" importance without loosing any ground yourself. Battles over these points on a map often come into being depending where armies happen to be in relationship to one another. As dawn breaks, your commanding officer sends the order to move out. It is time for the grim game of war to begin once again.
This mission uses 3, 40mm objectives.
One objective is placed in the centre of the table. Then, using this centre point, the board is divided into 4 equal sized quarters.

|Time to stop the online "flame war" gang!|
I can’t help but notice that the term “Tournament Player” has been bantered around on certain Facebook groups lately as a dirty word. As a diehard tournament player I have to say that I find this both surprising and a tad annoyingly misleading. I think a few people might be using terminology incorrectly. Today I aim to bust out the dictionary and, I hope, to clarify a few things about the sometimes elusive and often maligned tournament player.
