WWPD News From the Front

Return of the Judi


EZ and Dano are away from the conference room, trying to improve the Flesh Star Destroyer's defenses by spackling shut all the exhaust ports, so the ship's battle computer R1H4 steps in alongside the ship's doctor, Reinholt, to talk about their very early impressions on Wave 5. Obligatory Rogue One chat takes place as well, but for the most part Drunk Tarkin and Skyshuffler spend a lot of energy dodging all the blaster fire the newcomers bring aboard.

He explains the tricks he used to get that level of detail onto the models in such a short period of time. He then hangs around for a bit and the guys briefly talk Team Yankee and wargaming in general. Look for more pictures of Patch's stuff on the LRDG Podcast's FB page. 
I am joined in the final segment by, the one and only, Matt Stanley of Nova Open (in)Fame. Matt shares the highs and lows of his recent Adepticon trip, discusses gaming post apocalypse style, chats Malifaux highlights and shares new events scheduled for this year's Nova Open.
