Some hobby time

By theGravemind

I've been away for a while. Its been a tight year for me, I haven't really had internet for free time. What time I have had, I've spent on the hobby.
The new tyranid release got me back into playing nids. I've been slowly working on my tau as well. My next project is a heresy era night lords.
With up coming xmas money, I've got a barbed hierodule ordered. I'm hope with in a few months things will turn around for me so I can make more progress on the night lords.

FFG Just Merged With A Very Big Fish

by SandWyrm

FFG just announced a merger with Asmodee (Big French Board Game Company). Suddenly FFG has solid world-wide distribution, and Asmodee gets a successful US game publisher with solid US distribution channels. Sounds win-win to me.

Oh, and Chapterhouse finally settled with GW. CHS is promising to have their website back up on Friday, so I'm guessing they got a mildly decent payoff (but not a buyout) from GW's new CEO. Who probably just wanted this whole mess to go away before the appeal was set to start.

Some Tank Porn To Brighten Your Monday

by SandWyrm

One of the military blogs I follow turned me on to this cache of ultra-cool tank wallpapers put out by the Russian arms firm "UralVagonZauod". The paintings are amazing, and would look at home in any near-future Sci-Fi game. Head over to the site and you can choose from any desktop or iPhone resolution you like. These are the lowest-res versions they have available.

3D Printing: Would You Play Against This Army?

by SandWyrm

While agonizing over whether to buy in to the Kickstarter for this cool new 3D printer, I came across this pic of a 3D printed Space Marine force. You can see the printing 'layers' if you click on the pic and zoom in, but really... Does it look so bad? Would you even care if it was painted up to a tabletop standard?

Is It Just Me... Or Does This Thing Actually Look Good?

by SandWyrm

You bug players will have to tell me if it does very much to help the rest of the new codex, but I'm actually impressed with both the model and the rules for once. Rare high-five to GW!

Robot Dragon Vs. Giant Spider In Beijing!!!

by SandWyrm

Nope, it's not a scene from a movie. A French company built 2 enormous robot puppets for a performance in China. Too cool!

The Able Kompanie Christmas Battle of the Bulge tournament was announced last week. I'm pretty excited. I'm also surprised. Not by tournament details:

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People: The Game

By CaulynDarr

A few months back Fantasy Flight announced a new set of apocalypse themed role-playing games. They where introduced as having a novel concept in the genre.  You play as yourself.  And you start the game wherever you are when you start playing.  You then take yourself though the scenario of a zombi plague, alien invasion, or the rise of the machines.  I thought the concept had some promise.

Fantasy Flight just put out the first rules teaser.

BAE Demonstrates Hybrid-Electric Tank Prototype

by SandWyrm

Nice little demo video that shows off the internal layout and economy advantages of tanks having a hybrid-electric drive. A development that has been WAY too long in coming. What they don't show, however, is one of the best advantages of HE drives – STEALTH!

Squint, And They Almost Look Like Chimeras...

Nice pic of a Canadian live-fire exercise. Could almost imagine those trails being multi-laser bursts. :)
