In this D6G megasode we manage to interview the men behind two of the hotest up-and-coming miniature gaming companies.

Up first Eric Johns from Wyrd Miniatures brings us up to date on what's happening with Malifaux and beyond.  What can we expect from the new rule book, what kind of hotness will be at GenCon, what's the deal with Puppet Wars, and just how cool is all that new Terraclips terrain anyway?

Later Neil Fawcett from Spartan Games is on the show.  We ask him what's going on with all three lines of Spartan products: Uncharted Seas, Firestorm Armada, and Dystopian Wars.  They've also got a lot of new hotness coming to Gencon 2011 and Neil isn't shy about telling you exactly what it is.  

But we're not done with Spartan Games once Neil hangs up.  We then dive into the new land units for Dystopain Wars.  How does the game play on land?

As if all that wasn't enough, we announce the winners of the Wargamma haiku contest and don't miss a special 'extended edition' of Words from Wales... megasode indeed!

 All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including:

Someone on the show is a Trek fan... can you guess who?  When Star Trek: Expeditions hit the streets, the crew just had to review it.  Well, two of us did.  Does it do the series justice?
