Ghaznavids with Ethan

July 14, 2017

In this episode the near-legendary East Coast gamer Ethan Zorick discussed how he puts together an effective Ghaznavid list for L'Art de la Guerre.  We discuss a wide variety of topcs from the role of command values, whether there is anything in the game an Elite General-mounted Death Star should fear, and whether Essex Miniatures really stand up to the test of time. Listen in for ADLG hints, tips and general intellectual-sounding banter as we discuss ... The Ghaznavids!

The list we discuss in this podcast is as follows:

  • 3 Turkish ghulams Heavy cavalry bow ----------
  • 1 Turks Light cavalry bow ----------

Sassanid Persian List Building in L’Art de la Guerre

July 3, 2017

A surprisingly informative and educational podcast this week, in which I interview Richard Case, current UK #1 player and winner of the BHGS Challenge 2017 about how he designed and concieved the Sassanid Persian army list he used to win the Challenge with.

This podcast accompanies the match reports on Madaxeman.com of the competition, in which I also use a Sassanid list, but with less success... 

(Recorded via Skype, so good sound quality throughout as well.)

A video version of this podcast exists on Youtube

The Road Back from Campaign

May 13, 2017

In this episode I'm joined by Dave Dave and Aussie Simon as we talk about ADLG lists past and present, as well as some genereal rambling about FoGR and the surprising popularity of terrain mats among wargamers right now, especially as we are normally such a tight-fisted bunch of old gits. 

This episode was recorded quite literally on the road, using an iPhone 5 microphone - the audio is still pretty decent though, so don't be afraid!

Elephants & Tapas - Madaxeman.com live from the (tapas bar) table-top in Spain

December 5, 2016

In this episode the usual gang of inexpert commentators, me, Aussie Simon, Dave "The Cheese-Winner" Saunders and Peter "Midnight Streaker" Webb consume vino tinto, eat surprisingly spicy tapas and try and get to the bottom of the conundrum of how and why Elephants can sometimes appear to be wonder weapons in L'Art de la Guerre. There is probably a load of other stuff there too about how the event went, how to design an army, and whether national play styles really ar "a thing" - but you'll have to listen to find out!

In this episode, recorded in the town square of Estella on a sunny Sunday afternoon, the Central London International Travelling ADLG Circus discuss the latest ADLG expedition - the games, the dice, the food, the drink and the sleepwalking nudity as well.  As we now say in the world of Spanish ADLG, "What's it to you?"
