D6G Episode 188: Mark Gibbons Interview, & Kings of War

Owen Staton, the official D6G Welsh ambassador, returns to the 3rd chair!

Owen has been playing quite a bit of Kings of War, combine that with Russ and Craig's impressions of the game at Adepticon and we thought it was time to dive deep into the game and talk about how it works, what makes it unique, and how it compares to Age of Sigmar.

But first, we've doubled our Welshmen this episode!  Craig and Russ caught up with Mark Gibbons at Adepitcon and had a chance to discuss how he got into the game business as an artist working with companies like Games Workshop, Blizzard, and Privateer Press.  We also ask him about  his latest project: Dark Deeds.
