  1. I've also had success with scaling up/down with Starmada. You have a set of stats for a ship for fleet actions and a set of stats for the same ship for duels. It's usually just a question of increasing damage boxes/output...
  2. That's along the lines of what the BL said they might do: CGL direct to video type of affair. With the DoW intros as a testbed to show it's feasible. Hope the plotline is a little better than, saw, the Assault on Black Reach novella. But if it's not, I'm cool.
  3. I'm a dog fan! Of course, I was raised by Labs. Seriously. One of my Dad's woofes whelped at the same time I was born. He just snuck me in to the litter. I didn't know any better until I was 7....
  4. That was Planetfall, wasn't it?
  5. Is it your Legion of Steel box?
  6. Are you saying those people will convert their GW minis over, or they'll not buy GW product period? I have the same question. I figure GW can live w/o proceeds for the rulesets, but the minis are their bread and butter.... I see, they need another designation.
  7. I agree but would use the word "proprietary" instead of monopolistic. It's semantics but monopolistic indicates that there is no one but GW. There are plenty of other companies, but folks might not like their flavor. As opposed to, say 15mm WWII, where there are dozens of manufacturers for the exact same mini (like a panzer II j, for example).
  8. I bought it. I have to. I own multiple copies of the 1st 2 ed of space hulk and had to get this one. I'm also programmed to pick up copies of Catcher in the Rye whenever I'm in a bookstore, but that's a different issue.
  9. Raven Guard=Ninja I would argue that Vikings are a form of pirate.....
  10. The, um, Stormlordtroopers? "These aren't the droids you're looking for..."
  11. What?!? There Space Vikings for the love of god! Who wouldn't want Space Vikings? Blaring The Immigrant song in the background during games? Wagner? c'mon!
  12. Well, at least we know he's good at it.....
  13. Pls give estimate cost for recycled material and man hours spent, paint cost etc. Also, ho rugged would you describe your landing pad as. I'm not trying to knock it, just want to get the most accurate cost comparison possible.....
  14. Isn't the Warstore restocking after the IG release settles in? What timeframe do you have to have this done in?
  15. pshaw! They had at least 3 different episodes of mud stealing in the original star trek series. Not to mention that one episode of the original BCG....
  16. Austin has UT, the biggest university campus in the US. That's where all the zombies come from. Denton isn't exactly zombie safe as we have both UNT and TWU....
  17. Oh but there is! Jump on over to www.imdb.com to check it out!
  18. Philosopher King, Josh, Philosopher King....
  19. I wanted to pull this quote as it applies to the discussion both of you are having. granted, Lars, you don't think much of the aesthetic but what about the principle? Exact same stat line that can be applied to 2 different systems, individual and squad based, similar to the rackham confron/ragnarok principle of confron 3rd/rag1st ed? I've always been fascinated by these but it seems to almost never work out, with one of the systems far outstripping the other in popularity. And if it's not a multi system approach, what systems have you seen that work well on a smaller scale that can scale up appropriately? I'm also curious to find out what Josh is working on...
  20. There's a thread over at dakkadakka concerning how a miniature lline has to be able to scale up in order to be successful over the long term. Ultimately, as the bulk of income comes from mini sales buying more minis=more profit....
  21. Maybe we need to go 15mm to keep up with inflation...
  22. I ride a bike with a 1400 cc engine and squeeze out 50 mpg averaging about 80 mph. Kaneda's driving what looks liek a 600 cc, geared for racing so it probably gets 35-40 mpg....
  23. Even if it's painted flat black and has machine guns mounted on it? maybe they could pull an akira and just ride bikes (50 mpg...)
