Episode 17 – Full Armour!


In this episode Giles, Peter and Reese are joined by special guests Neil Fawcett and Derek Sinclair to talk about the Armoured theatre in Dystopian Wars.

We talk tanks, templates and tactics in this episode, and as well as covering how the land game has changed, we also look at how it’s different from the Naval game, and some things to keep an eye open for in the future.

We apologise for the sound quality at times, Skype is a fickle mistress, but we hope what we have is reasonable enough to enjoy!  I must also apologise for the lateness of the episode, while it’s been gathering digital dust on my harddrive, I’ve had work and other business to attend to – my apologies!
