Jon "Yakface"Regul of DakkaDakka.com returns to the third chair!

Jon is no stranger to miniature war games having been a powerful force behind DakkaDakka.com and the 40k INAT FAQ for many years. So image how exicted we were to learn he and others from Dakka Dakk were launching a brand new miniatures game: "Maelstrom's Edge."  Join us as we quiz Jon on all the details of this new hotness.

And later Jon, Craig, and Russ dive in to more new hotness: Star Wars Armada and find out why it's both the rules AND the miniatures that make this game great.
