OnTabletop Weekender Ep260: Win 40K Shadowspear & New Newbury & Hobbes Game!

February 16, 2019

Welcome to The Weekender for this week where we've got Needy Cat Games talking about their new project alongside author George Mann for a Newbury & Hobbes tabletop game!

Make sure to get involved in the comments as we're going to be giving away a copy of Warhammer 40,000: Shadowspear when it gets released by Games Workshop.

God Emperor Trump

It bodes terribly for the world if this ever comes to pass, but we look at the satirical look at Donald Trump that popped up this week in Italy. 

I'm sure that Trump will see it as something awesome (since he is rather feeble minded) but it would be terrible if he became our God Emperor!
