Andy is back with another episode! In a bit of a departure from the usual fare at MBS, Episode 70 features an interview with Michael "Mick" Farnworth, who has a new book on modelling and painting Vietnam-era wargames that has just been published by Military Miniature Press. During their discussion, Mick and Andy discuss the challenges of book writing and publishing, as well as the content of Mick's new book and why a naval gamer might be interested in picking up a copy.

Note: Andy was provided with a review copy of Mick's book.
