I wonder when we'll see the at-table conversions. When do these new models hit the market?

The Taurox was released a few weeks back, the same week the Storm Troopers mini-dex released.

Googling "Taurox conversion" shows us that quite a few people have gone with a wheeled version, and one has gone the half track route. My favourite is the one mounted on six mechanical legs. Great stuff.

As for Warhammer Fantasy and Kings of War - at least half of our local players have mostly, or fully, GW armies. Personally, I dug out a couple of large boxes worth of Empire minis for my Kingdoms of Men army.

Oddly enough, making the Taurox look more like an MRAP kinda works...

H.R. Giger., 74.

If you don't know who he is, I don't think I want to know you.

I have a hard time caring about a game when I go into it knowing the situation is already hopeless and players are just waiting around for when the GM decides to kill you.

In CoC's defense, some games are more about the journey than the destination Wink

Taika Waititi (Boy, Green Lantern) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords, MiB3) are carrying on the proud Kiwi tradition of making f'ing weird movies with a mockumentary about ancient vampires living in modern-day New Zealand.

What We Do In The Shadows

It looks exactly as crazy as it sounds.

But GW are a miniatures company, not a decent rules writing fake language creating company.

I always liked that the Eldar referred to humans on Monkeigh. Seemed appropriate for an old race.

Ahh, but it's not Latin, it's High Gothic ("Imperial Guard" is the Low Gothic name).

Okay, so that's an excuse for GW to use Latin-sounding names without having to stick to all of the grammatical rules that come with the language.

Amusingly enough, a couple of GW staffers have confirmed that Space Marines will never be renamed Adeptus Astartes as they've got too much invested in that particular IP. I guess it would look like weakness on their part if they changed the name after failing to sue the author of Spots the Space Marine Wink

Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter

Don't know the name? You'll probably know the song.

It turns out Firaxis picked the wrong music for their trailer. Here's a much better version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_WSgMhfuic

I think it's a teaser for the TV series of GdT's The Strain novel. I haven't seen the ads so couldn't say for sure, but I have seen a teaser elsewhere that matches what you described.

Keep the pressure on with solid lines throughout and a fascinating origin story and look for the gear and we're looking at a character I want to see again. And again. And I really wouldn't have said that about most of his comic/cartoon incarnations.

He's not Aquaman for birds, which was a wise choice to make. There's plenty of cool still left in the character.

I hope we see him, if only briefly, in Avengers 2. I also would be surprised if he becomes part of the main team roster after some or all of the current lineup step down (Phase 4, perhaps).

They do look good, but it irks me that they've put the command squad and normal squad in the same box, meaning you'll always get all the extra bits whether you want them or not. Also, unless the rules have changed, this is only enough models to make a minimum squad, not a full 10 models. This is the sort of thing they do with the Fantasy regiments. While it keeps things simple in terms of variety, pretty soon you end up with a whole lot of bits you'll likely never use.

That aside, the beret heads are pretty badass, too...

That's it, Wolverine is now no longer allowed to make up thread titles for the rest of the internet's days.  Tongue

I was thinking about making next year's:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was better than The Dark Knight. Yeah, I said it.

+1

CA:TWS sets the bar for second act superhero movies, and it sets it pretty damn high. It's balls-to-the-wall awesome from start to finish, and the way it interacts with other films and TV shows in the Marvelverse is amazing to behold.

Oh, and the scene with Peggy was genuinely heartbreaking.

Also, is it too late to petition Joss Whedon to give Anthony Mackie at least a small role in Avengers 2?
