Awesome episode, as always guys. Next wave sounds really yummy (I know I am going to get broke when it comes out).
Nice that you picked up the old boardgame as well, I own that and I will definitely like to see more flavor added to it as well.

A question for you: how did you manage to make the Yakov platoon playable? As you well know, that question haunted me for quite some time now...

Oh, and nice idea for the contest. Useless to say, I have entered it too! :D

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

Yeah, like I said in this episode I've started working on an unofficial expansion to add some flavour to the Boardgame. I wrote a bit about it on the BGG forum: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2027950/idea-upgrade-cards

A question for you: how did you manage to make the Yakov platoon playable? As you well know, that question haunted me for quite some time now...
The Yakov platoon was played by our good friend Martin, against Ludvig. I'm not sure about the details so I can't really comment on that. I assume they came up with some rules of their own to make it work.

Oh, and nice idea for the contest. Useless to say, I have entered it too! :D
Great! Good luck in the random draw!

Also: I'm not sure if it is my memory tricking me, or if it mentioned in the episode. Can small vehicles stack?
I remember something like that, but can't find any mention of it in the rules.

Just listening to you talking about dry brushing with very thin/wet paint. I used a similar technique on my 40k vehicles many years ago. I nick named it ‘wet brushing’ and it got my army into the best army competition a couple of times!

Sorry, I have been vague. I mean: more than a (small) vehicle being able to occupy the same square.
I think I may have made this one up.

Ok, I understand now.

No, only Heroes on foot can share a square with another unit.

Ok, thank you for helping me clearing the rubble out of my memory :)
And hope to hear from Martin about his Yakov platoon!

Really cool episode again. those previews are awesome. Oh, and I totally share Magnus love for the J7W1 Shinden. fun fact: designed for a still to be developed jet engine in mind it was actually a pusher piston engine configuration. they never reached actual jet stadium but due to the well thought design the adjustments would have been relatively small to exchange the piston engine and propeller with a jet engine.
And I'm really happy that I to have one of those Dust Boardgames. it is really neat.

cheers

Cool episode, thanks.

The shinden is actually available in 1/48 - both with the propeller and engine versions.

Sweet that somebody’s daughter asked when you were done. “Dad, when are you nerds done with your ramblings.” At least that is how I heard it.  ;)

I'm glad you like the episode. Yes, that was Luddaz' daughter getting annoyed with us (your quote is almost exactly what she said) ;D
