Dragged into Turbolasers is Between the Bolter and Me's official miniature wargaming podcast. We talk critically about all aspects of the miniature hobby, with a primary focus on Warhammer 40,000 and other Games Workshop games. Rather than conversing about rules and competitive play, our priority is to discuss the miniature side of the hobby: exploring hobby techniques, talking about our current projects on the blog Between the Bolter and Me, and most importantly, interviewing people involved in the hobby.

Good content, but can be hard to listen to

By Dadney - Oct 29 2018

I think these brothers have a deep love and appreciation of the material they discuss, which is evident in the content of their podcast. What is lacking however is a level of polish on the production. The tone is often conversational, which hits a snag when the energy feels low and the tone of voice can be difficult to listen to for very long. I think the way they talk is very regional as well... perhaps you need to be from the east coast to fully appreciate it.

Great stuff!

If you're into Inq28 or narrative 40K, you owe it to yourself to spend some time with the Weir brothers. You won't be disappointed.

In an unusual turn of events, we talk about the Swedish pen-and-paper Role-Playing Game (RPG) MÖRK BORG, with our friend Eli Parsons. It is a rules-lite game that is heavy on atmosphere, putting the players into one of the bleakest fantasy settings we have ever come across. The imagery and setting were inspired by doom metal and black metal bands, many of which are specifically listed at the front of the book! We talk about how the ideas presented in the game book could easily be transferred to your games of Age of Sigmar if you have no desire to run an RPG session.
