Subscribers of the magazine will realise we’re recording very close to the latest issued XII.2 XII.2 Wild Allies and Enemies: Fierce fighters, masterful mercenaries, backwards barbarians, we felt it didn’t give people enough time to read it, digest it and feed us your questions, so we’ve decided on another 'in-between' episode.

Murray once more suggested the topic for discussion, his was a one word suggestion ‘uniform’, which had us all going off in different directions on what we could talk about, but it's turned into a very interesting conversation.

So joining Angus are regulars Jasper Oorthuys, Murray Dahm, Marc McCaffery, Lindsay Powell, Mark DeSantis, and joining us for the first time we’d like to welcome Myke Cole.

We were casting around for a topic between ourselves, another film? A piece of kit? Murray suggested we discuss trying to simulated the ancient battlefield. We look at table top games, computer games and re-enactment.
