Space Hulk Special, comming tuesday

With the release of Space Hulk I am trying to get some time with the game to have a reasonable review for this weeks show.

This will be the last show before I leave for the Phillipines on vacation. The show will be on temporary hiatus until I return and we will resume regular schedule when I get back from overseas in three weeks.
