Matt Wilson of Privateer Press sits down with the D6 Generation team to discuss the many big Privateer events of 2009 up to and including the new Warmachine video game.

But first we need to report on all our crazy adventures at GenCon 2009.  Russ, Raef, and Craig discuss all the great games they played and what the highlights of the convention were for them in a special extended edition of Achievements in Gaming.

And don't miss the first ever Rapid Fire recorded in front of a live audience!!

All that and our usual 'not too horrible' humor, with features such as:

- When Wives Attack
- The Hollywood Minute
- Words form Wales
- & More

[Note: We mention D6G GenCon Awards this episode.  Those were not included in Ep 38 due to time, but will appear in Ep 39.]

In part 2 of our bonus GenCon episodes we interview the folks at Wyrd Miniatures and discuss their new miniature skirmish game "Malifaux."  Malifaux premiered at GenCon 2009 and features many innovations including card, not dice, driven mechanics in a setting that is as unique as it is bizarre. 

Join us as we get to know the folks that bring you a game that features cowboys, mechanical spiders, flying pigs, and undead hookers.  (no, they don’t play rugby)

While at Gencon 2009 we managed to get a few interviews that we thought would be best sent out in 'unofficial' bonus episodes.  In our first bonus episode we start off with the creators of Exillis, the new hybrid game that brings the creative world of hobby wargaming together with the power of computer-aided combat.

Then we chat with Curt Covert of Smirk and Dagger to hear about his latest project and how it did at GenCon.

Finally Craig and Raef talk with the folks at Armorcast and learn what they've been up to recently.

Highlights this episode include a Rogue Trader RPG interview and a detailed review of Arcane Legions.

First we interview Ross Watson, Fantasy Flight Games' lead man on the Warhammer 40,000 themed RPG's Dark Heresy and the new "Rogue Trader."  We find out what to expect in this new edition to the 40k RPG line up.

Later the D6G team gets into the details on exactly how the new hybrid game Arcane Legions works.  We've had our hands on two of the demo kits, the first was from Origins and the second is the updated kit with the improved models.  We've assembled the miniatures and played the game and we're ready to share our thoughts.

All that and our usual 'not too horrible' humor, with features such as:

- When Wives Attack
- The Hollywood Minute
- Achivements in Gaming

- & More
