Episode 4: Mantic, News, War!

Hello valued listeners!

This week's episode will be recorded very soon so we thought we'd give you a bit of a run-down of what you can expect. We know that you'll listen anyways even if you don't particularly like something because you just never know whats gonna happen on Behind Enemy Lines!

Act One will have all the latest news, views, Kickstarter info and stuffs that we can glean from our reputable sources. This is where we also try and wrangle free stuff from companies so we can review it for them and tell you guys about it!

Act Two we'll talk about what's been happening in the NZ gaming scene with some run-downs of events and also new stuff that we're excited about.

Act Three we're gonna hit the explanation of Kings of War for you guys. As the version 2 beta is out, we'll do a bit of a run-down of the differences for you v1 guys who haven't seen it yet and also what our thoughts are. Hopefully Mantic hears the superlative effort we'll do as well.

So that's it. You've got a day or so to let us know if there's anything else you want to hear about. Drop us a line on Facebook or if your question is 140 characters or shorter, let us know on Twitter.

Meet the Behind Enemy Lines team

Eventually, the guys who work on the Behind Enemy Lines are going to become superstars who will be mobbed on the street by nerdy cosplayers and other girly types. To get past the whole "getting to know you" chit-chat thingee, we thought we'd just tell you all a little bit about us.

There are three dudes who rock this show. They are, in no reasonable order:

Dan Linder

I've been wargaming since I was a young lad of 14. I got started, like most folks, on Warhammer 40k. After this started to wane, I moved on to Flames of War which I've been playing since 2003. In the last few years, I've branched out and now have something like 10 systems I regularly play.

I enjoy all aspects of the hobby and although I may not be the best at any one thing, I try to give it my all in playing, painting and modelling.

I also have formal radio training so hopefully the podcasts will only get better in the future!

You can find Dan's personal blog at http://kingdannz.blogspot.co.nz/

Mike Haught

I'm Mike and I hobby a lot. I'm pretty into building and flying model airplanes, designing games, playing with toy soldiers of all sorts, moving meeples around boardgames, and Guild Wars. Also Fallout.

Check out my blog at www.scarybiscuitsstudios.com and say hi!

Greg Lockton

G'day, I'm Greg. I've been gaming for what seems like forever. I started around 8 playing toy soldiers with my old man and have been playing on and off since then.

My favourite period to game is WWII, so I'm really into Flames of War and Bolt Action at the moment but I'll give anything a go...hence the large collection of plastic, metal and resin in my man-cave.
I'm also a bit of a social media whizz so if you see a tweet on our twitter (@bel_podcast) or blog post (like this one), its almost likely come from my fingers. I also update our local club blog over at http://tcownz.blogspot.co.nz/

So that's the team...please be gentle if you see us in the street. We're people too....

Episode 3: Coming Up!

We've just finished this week's TCOW meeting, so that means that we'll be hitting the recording "studio" this week to record episode 3 of Behind Enemy Lines for your listening pleasure!

So, what do we have planned this week?

N00b News, as always, will be covering the latest information that we can find around the internet. New products, Kickstarter info and rumours that we've been listening to.

From there, we're going to do a bit of a Battlefront special. This week, JP has given us a HEAP of info about what BF have planned for 2015 on the Flames of War and Flames of Other Things front. We'll talk all about them and see how far our excitement goes!

In keeping with this theme, we talk exclusively to James Brown of Battlefront Studios about his new Colours of War painting system and new colour palette. A great chance to get the lowdown on whats new here!

So make sure you tune in to episode 3. Keep an eye on wwpd.net and watch this space!

Episode 2 is live!

Hello there BEL fans! As most of you may be aware, episode 2 of the newest podcast in the wwpd.net stable is now live for you listening pleasure! 

In this episode, Dan and I talk about a few things. Act 1 is all about the N00b News as always. We update you on interesting things we've seen happening in the gaming world.

Act 2 sees (hears?) us talk about whats been happening in the New Zealand scene. We've a bit of a run-down on Battlecry and also the disgusting showing I had in my games at TCOW (www.tcownz.blogspot.co.nz), you dont want to miss that!

Act 3 gets a little more philosophical and serious...well, as much as we can. We talk about the 4 different types of gamer or gaming hangouts and their pros and cons. We also start to delve a little into gamer ADHD, something we know all to well.

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback so please drop us a line through one of our channels!
