WWPD News From the Front

Welcome to episode lucky 13 of the LRDG II!

Brad is rejoined by, friend of the cast and all around hobby hero, Luke Emerton to discuss a number of BIG BA topics. First of all the guys talk through the brand new FAQ from Warlord games and what is means for BA as a whole. They also take a deep dive into the history of an interesting "link" in the evolution of modern Soviet tanks, the humongous T-28! They do all this before hitting the main topic of the episode.
In the last episode Brad talked about how exciting it is that with the "new" edition, units and vehicles that used to be terrible have been given new life and how listing has become interesting again because there are so many units to choose from. This episode Brad and Luke dive into the flip side of that coin and examine the "bad boys" of first edition that were "too good" to take. Are vehicle flamethrowers, cavalry, Ghurkas, big HE tanks and more acceptable to take now or are they still to rough to bring in a friendly game? Tune in and find out!
