Released from the Baconbunker into the glorious surrounds of the BaconBalcony, our hosts discuss this dumpster fire of a year,speculate on the tournament calendar for 2021, review the new range of miniatures from May 40 and the new pre-painted MDF buildings from Battlefield Accessories, take a deep dive into the romantic nature of bowling balls, and examine the pros and cons of 3d printing for wargaming. All with the usual lashings of ramshackle production and juvenile humour
In this episode, our hosts are still sealed in the Baconbunker and obviously the threads of sanity are unravelling. As nobody has been able to play any games for six months, discussion turns to hobby strategies: How to keep motivation going to paint during lockdown, tips and tricks for tackling batch painting, how to prevent burnout, and some thoughts on how to get the best from commission painting from both sides. And a discussion about how putting on your fighting trousers every day even if you are locked in with the Morlocks is important for your sanity.
In which our hosts seal themselves within the safety of the BaconBunker for the duration, emerging only to scavenge the wasteland for toilet paper and beer. Discussion of solo-play systems and campaign design, Hobby tips to keep occupied, and a special guest plague zombie breaks through the containment lines to offer some post-mortem commentary.
