Board games are growing in popularity. It wouldn't be the worst idea :) .
Someone around here is, in fact, developing a boardgame loosely based on the TSA.
For the record (for those who don't know) Bakker said he thought makeing a Total War franchise esque video game would be ideal for his vision of TSA.
Large scale war games fit nicely into the world, and maybe easier to balance than a more RPG style game.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Even if you're not into board games, this cat's review of Nemesis is fricken hilarious ... give it a whirl if any of you have some free time and want a laugh ( the game looks cool, just his presentation is intentionally quite funny ). The game is a clear ripoff of Alien, but looks kinda cool. I love the alien miniature holding up one of it's "babies".

Sorry, I thought you knew. In that case:
It's called The Vulgar Holy War, and was made by Frail.

There's a live KS going for a game called Planet Apocalypse. Think I'm going to back it. Scroll down near the bottom of the front page, there's a nice turn table view of the miniatures. It's Lovecraftian Horror meets Kingdom Death. I like Lovecraft, the lore is cool, but haven't bought into any of the Cthulhu games, the monsters just seem a mess to me with eyeballs and mouths everywhere - more "over the top" in lieu of "art". This game is by the same guy ( I think ), but he's imho doing a nice job of introducing art into the monsters this go around and they're much more appealing to me ( though he's over using the head-ish coming out of the rear-end design bit too much - I do like it, but doesn't need to be on almost every monster ). Kinda a fun theme with "normal" people fighting otherworldly demons and such, some humor there.

And H, where the fuck are the pictures of your WH figures?

Nice!  I have several of those that "were" built.  They weren't painted though and over time (and a couple moves) the little weapon bits have broken off...

(Picture was pretty huge, click it for full size if you want.)

Been pretty busy, but I finally managed to get the "hobby corner" in some kind of shape.

Next adventure is to learn how to airbrush...

The track lighting is very nice. Looks like many hours of fun waiting to be had.

They are actually LED's that are meant to go behind a TV, but just happened to be about the perfect size.  They even change colors and stuff, which looks neat but is totally worthless, haha.  But I really need to find some decent desk lights that I can put some LED daylight bulbs into.  While it looks bright due to the flash on the camera, it's really not great for painting.

Aw, man, so nice - I need to build/get one of those ( my house is too small! ) and stop paying people to paint my mini's. I bought some paints/brushes to get started and then had hand surgery. I should be in good enough shape to get going, I have plenty of "patients" I can try out my brush on to get good before attempting awesome stuff.

I certainly am not a "good" painter at all.  And I have no time to really practice either, but I am trying.  The airbrush is mainly so that I can prime stuff without having to go outside, because even when the weather is OK to spray, there is so much pollen, wind, etc, that the results aren't great.
