  1. I thought there was a transparent (translucent, maybe colored) weapon sprue? Looking through the on-line store I do not see such a thing. Is there such a thing...or did I hallucinate it from licking my paintbrushes? =-Jake
  2. Excellent! That is really nice and gives me hope for the future of Warlord.
  3. Count me in!! I really want to kick the spaceship tires!
  4. I played this in the final Beta stages at Owlcon in Houston this year and really had a blast. I give it a "thumbs up"! I am concerned that the $$ funding amount seems pretty high, but what do I know about finance? Doc, I have played Car Wars and find that Battle Roads has a much more realistic feel. The scale is larger and the available actions are much more constrained, as is appropriate to drivers without super computers and 4-wheel steering like Car Wars. The only thing I am sad to see was the Beta had pegs for the control panels instead of plastic cubes....I'm thinking kit-bashed lite-brite pegs! The 3D prints look a little rougher than the injection molded cars we were playing with in the Beta. =-Jake
  5. Nice! I had a million of these guys "back in the day" (before my divestment of all things GW). Seems like they mass produced this particular pose, even had it as a freebie stuck to their trade mag, as I recall. =-Jake
  6. I knew about the plastic monsters but I didn't know which came first, the chicken or the egg. The info on githyanki (one of my favorite D&D races/backgrounds) was completely unknown to me. Love it! =-Jake
  7. Yep, I'm pretty sure his designs were used for all the Roborally bots as well as some of the interior artwork for the original game (early 90's as I recall). Although he was doing What's New with Phil and Dixie in the early 80's for Dragon magazine. Aww, the good ol' days! =-Jake
  8. YAY! Bones III!!!

  9. Yep, I was "disturbed" when I logged back in and it looked like my pledge was gone... still processing
  10. They do have some really nice minis and the reps I've met have been good guys. For small skirmish games, I think the rule set is pretty decent as well.
  11. YAY herzogbrian! I am super-psyched to hear that someone is reviving Warlord! My Bloodstone Gnomes have been itching for a fight. =-Jake
  12. SamuraiJack - Thanks very much for helping to drain another $40 out of my wallet...
  13. Yeah.... Rain of Spiders! Forget that! I'm calling in sick that day and staying in my house.
  14. We actually have a reasonable recycling program. We get one large wheeled bin for garbage and another equal sized bin for paper/metal/plastic. The bins are large enough that I seldom see recycling piled up around them. Anecdotally, driving around town, it appears that about 2/3 of the households participate in this recycling to some extent. =-Jake
  15. First thing that popped into my mind was the Chronoscope Skydiver: here He would need a little modding but he's in the right orientation at least. =-Jake
  16. I loved the Spelljammer setting! I only played 2nd briefly but would love to play if this gets off the ground.
  17. I gotta agree with TaleSpinner to some degree. I used to play WFB a LOT! Then after multiple new editions, obvious power-creep-to-sell-big-expensive-minis and making your favorite unit/character/elite obsolete I gave up. My money now goes to Reaper and a small handful of other deserving companies. I'm not surprised by GW discontinuing WFB (if that is true). Their main thrust has been their futuristic setting for many years now. =-Jake
  18. I have a similar storage constraint and have kept Reaper paints stored bottom-up for a long time. As MissMelons said, the paint does tend to settle in the tip. A handy small paperclip re-pokes the hole perfectly. =-Jake
