Battlechat 11 with Keith Flint
Keith Flint is well known for his excellent blog at http://keefsblog.blogspot.com and for being one of the most outspoken voices in the wargaming community. Indeed, it was that characteristic that led to me commissioning an article from him way back in Battlegames issue 24, where his thought-provoking piece "The New Wargaming" discussed the ever-increasing encroachment of commercialism into the hobby.

Ironically, Keith's own Honours of War Seven Years War ruleset was taken up by Osprey Publishing and published in 2015 to broad acclaim. More recently, his interests have turned to the ancient era which, purely coincidentally, is precisely where my own interests are now being directed. His recent article "Becoming an Ancients Wargamer" in Slingshot #319 caught my attention and provided the incentive to have this chat.

You'll have to forgive my occasional cough during the show, as I'm recovering from a chest infection, and a technical glitch prevented me from being able to edit them all out.

I really enjoyed having Keith on the show and it turned out we have more in common than I imagined, so I hope to invite him back in the future to talk about where his journey has taken him.

Enjoy the show!
