Yarkshire Gamer Podcast - Episode 10 - John Lander - Thats not a big game, This is a BIG GAME


Episode 10 is here and this time we really have gone big !

If you have listened closely to some of the previous episodes of the Podcast you will have heard today's guest mentioned a couple of times, Mark Freeth has some of his figures at the Wargames Holiday Centre and Dr Chris Brown owns some if his 54mm WW2 Collection.

John is a master of the Big Game and his 72ft Market Garden game at Salute is a thing of legend (yes that is 72 feet) and to make it even more special its was done in 54mm !

The Podcast interview is avaliable in the embedded player below 

It was great fun talking to John and he is definitely of the same mindset as the Yarkshire Gamer, we don't mean any disrespect or harm, we both just look at a table, a unit or a game and think, "that could do with a few hundred more figures 😀"

We cover many topics, for example have you considered how boring UK Wargames Club names are 🤔 we did. Stand by for The Leeds Death Match Dice Thunder Rollers 🤣

We tipped in at over 2 hours which is longer than normal and that was with me cutting out all the bits that would have got me in real trouble. It's a good listen though and I really hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The next episode will be out in a couple of weeks when I take my first visit to Australia 

And just in case you missed the previous episode with Pete Morbey from Elite Miniatures it's available on the Utubes with lots of lovely pictures of his figures to ogle at as the interview plays,


  1. Ken,
    Great chat with John and I still remember walking into Salute some years ago and seeing the jaw dropping Market Garden game. Really enjoying the podcast and look forward to the next one.

    1. I wish I had seen it ! Thanks for the support for the podcast, much appreciated 👍
