Extended Perry Interview
This week on YouTube, we brought you along as we crashed Alan Perry's game room to check out his amazing garage set up. But we also had the chance to sit down and talk to Alan and Michael for a wide-ranging chat. Parts of that interview appear in this week's YouTube video, but we wanted to upload a great bonus segment here on the 'Free Stuff' page. This segment is all about campaigns--how to run them, how the Perry's play them, and tips for improving your tabletop campaigns at home. And if you're wondering what these guys are playing on that lovely, 28mm Napoleonic table in Alan's game room....it's "Valour & Fortitude," of course! It's a free Napoleonic game we've been talking about on our channel and you can check it out for free right here.
Lee Takes Command
Who was available? Ranger Nathan talks about the would-be contenders and how Robert E. Lee soon found himself tabbed for a field command. WATCH NOW!
We're officially wrapping up our Tombstone series with an in-depth discussion about the historical firearms used in the Shootout at the OK Corral. Chal and Tony sit down to talk about black powder weapons, one of the few Old West personalities who was known to make time for target practice, why Doc Holliday dropped his shotgun, and much more. Join us for a bonus video, available only on our Free Stuff page! Thanks for joining us.
Portions of this interview appear in our review video, but members of our Free Stuff page can now enjoy exclusive access to the "director's cut" of that conversation...which is to say, it's uncut! Our thanks again to Joe for sharing his film with us and sitting down to chat about the experience!
You came here for free stuff, so here's a reminder for how you could win something special! Cigar Box Battle is offering one of our lucky viewers a free Winter Scrub terrain mat for Christmas. We have several of their mats in our club and the Winter Scrub one is especially versatile. You can see details of the mat on the Cigar Box site right here. The video explains how you can potentially win this mat, along with a custom LWTV backpack. Just after posting it, several of you on YouTube said that you do not use Facebook, so we immediately expanded the eligibility to include project photos we receive via email, as well. You can email us HERE!
Little Wars TV is BACK! And we wanted to start by talking to hobby thought leaders around the world to find out where they see historical wargaming going in the coming years. Is the hobby growing, shrinking, or stagnating? What are the barriers to entry for new players and--most importantly--what can we do about it?
We interviewed almost 20 people for this series and only used brief clips from some of those interviews. Exclusively for our Free Stuff page members, we wanted to share the full, unedited interview with one of our interviewees, Mike Whitaker. Mike is formerly a host of the popular Meeples & Miniatures podcast. Although that show is no longer active, Mike remains active on his blog and his own gaming podcast. He has some great thoughts on the state of the hobby and now you can listen to the entire segment, uninterrupted. Our thanks to Mike Whitaker for taking part in this series!

Joe's Bonus Tips
In both of our Q&A sessions, multiple viewers submitted questions about our club and how they might find players to start their own. It's such a good and important topic that we made a video to give you our Top 10 Tips for Starting a Wargaming Club. This video is full of actionable strategies, so if you missed it, be sure to watch.
A couple of guests from other historical wargaming clubs around the country make an appearance in this video, including Joe Veltre of Gods Eye Games and The Acceptable Casualties. We're pleased to share even more tips from Joe that you didn't see in the main YouTube video. Joe's bonus tips are available for you as a member of the "Free Stuff" page! Thank you, Joe!
