D6G Episode 9: WH40k 5th Edition detailed review & Yak'n with Yakface

The D6G Warhammer 40K 5th edition mega-episode!

Preview copies of Warhammer 40,000 5th edition rule books have hit friendly local gaming stores and the D6G team managed to not only read through the book a few times but also play a couple of 5th edition games.

To help us with our detailed review special guest Jon 'Yakface' Regul joins us from www.DakkaDakka.com to help give detailed insight into the changes from 4th to 5th edition.  We also get to 'Yak with Yakface' about what it's like to write a massive FAQ such as the 40k Adepticon FAQ and what is on the horizon for Dakka Dakka.

All that plus our usual dose of 'not to horrible' humor makes this our longest episode yet.  So break out your paints because you'll probably finish a squad before this episode is done.

We'll also be posting some details about the army lists we played in that thread as well.
