The Cast Dice Podcast, Episode 55 - Deep Dive Into The Australian Bolt Action Meta

Cancon is the largest Bolt Action event on the Australian BA calendar every year and if often thought of as representative of the Australia "meta" as a whole. Although the event itself happened a few months ago, Brad along with special guest, Lachie (of the Baconburgers and of the Dwellers Below Podcasts), go into a detailed look at the lists that appeared there. They look at collectively what armies were present, how many of each units were used, the veterancy of those units and the number of order dice seen in armies at Cancon this year. They also compare those numbers to those in the top ten slots and discuss what this means for the game and what to expect if you play in a Bolt Action event Down Under. It is a whopper of an episode!If you would like to see the spread sheet with all the numbers that are discussed on this episode, please check out Cast Dice's Facebook Page. It will be posted there.
