This Week in Wargaming

I just finished listening to the "This Week in Wargaming" roundtable 1 show. I do like this show but I really think it should be renamed "This Week in WarHammer". This was highlighted when big Troy read out an email from Neil from the "Meeples and Miniatures" podcast. Neil took exception, and rightly so, to comments made by big Troy that 40K was the only game in town if you wanted to play sci-fi 28mm tank battles. Neil pointed out other game systems and models. Big Troy then asked the roundtable if they had heard of said games and models. Surprise, surprise, the roundtable are GW fanboys and of course they had not heard of said items. GW is wargaming. Nothing else is out there. That's equal to asking a bunch of yank Grid Iron fans, have you heard of Rugby? Most Yanks will go, whats that? Never heard of it, can't get a game of it around here. I'm not playing it. If they opened their eyes they would proably find a local Rugby club down the street. Message to roundtable. Pull your heads out of GW's arse and start googling. It's a big world and GW is just a small part of it.

TWIW weekly show is superb but get some variety on roundtable or run the risk of being know as TWIGW.
