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?

Chiwetel Ejiofor could be the next Bond villain

It only came out in NZ today (we get new releases on Thursdays), but I'm not seeing it till Sunday. Saw the lead-in episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night and am very much looking forward to it.

On a semi-related note, movies that feature women prominently make more money. Not all that surprising, but it's good to have some proof.

HuffPo's Weird News Page has been given a bit of a makeover. Or is that catover?

Here's an email I just received from Kickstarter...


Hi everyone!

Later this month we will celebrate our fifth birthday. Five years! That’s one heck of a milestone, and it’s got us reflecting.

Two years ago, in our third birthday blog post, we wrote the following: “We added the ‘e’ to Kickstarter in the fall of 2008. The new name took some getting used to.”

The truth is, we never really got used to it. Kickstarter with an “e” has looked weird to us since that day in 2008, but we felt fortunate to find a community that embraced us nonetheless. Now it’s time to stop pretending. We are proud to announce that effective immediately, we're going back to our roots. Kickstarter is now Kickstartr.

This was not a decision we made lightly; there were a number of considerations. Let's talk about design. We think there is a profound and enduring beauty in simplicity, clarity, and efficiency. True simplicity is derived from so much more than just the absence of clutter and ornamentation. Sculptors do not add clay to their statues. Instead, they chisel away at the nonessential until their refined vision is revealed. To that end, we’ve chosen not to add but to minimize, and boldly remove the nonessential “e” from our name.

Beyond that, we’ve always been environmentally self-conscious about our decision to add the "e". By changing back to Kickstartr sitewide, we reduce load time and bandwidth use across the board. Based on our current user base and daily page loads, dropping the “e” will actually save us (and you) a collective 14 TB of data usage annually. We've reduced our site's carbon footprint by over 9%, and we didn’t even have to switch our font to Garamond.

What does this mean for you, our community? We’ll still be the Kickstartr you know and love – just a little bit quicker to type! Our new logo is live and the transition to kickstartr.com will be complete by April 28th. In the meantime, we’ve got our work cut out for us. To get everyone on the same page, we’ll shortly be recalling and disposing of existing “Kickstarter” swag, and building out our training documentation on how to pronounce the new name.

We understand that we may be opening ourselves up to criticism; we remember the internet firestorm that resulted when TheFacebook transitioned to Facebook. But there is no “e” in community. In our hearts, we know that streamlining is the right thing to do. We are excited to continue to serve you, our community, for many years to come as Kickstartr.

<3

I played Goat Simulator last night. It's... amusing. Any game that has a 'Michael Bay' achievement can't be taken to seriously.

There's also a project named Bear Simulator running on Kickstarter.

So... there's going to be a Top Gun 2?

Remember that old Games Workshop game Mordheim? It was hot for a while before it got dropped in favour of moar Spesh Mareenz. Well, it's coming back... as a video game.

The tabletop game was one of GW's finest productions. This new version is being made by the people behind Blood Bowl, so hopefully it will measure up.

Seeing as it's as official as it's going to get...

Also, and it's so strange to recall, but Fred eFfin' Phelps was formerly a Civil Rights lawyer and Freedom Rider.
No story on why he turned to the dark side, but that's one pretty mixed legacy.

The explanation I heard recently was that he was only in it for the money. Also, being liberal in one respect doesn't prevent you from being conservative in others. Remember how most of the Democrats in the South switched to the Republican Party? Here in NZ we had members of the left wing Labour Party bring in extreme right wing policies before cleaving off to form a hard right wing party of their own.

The saddest thing I heard about Fred's death was that former members of the church were not allowed to visit him on his death bed. Even though Fred and his daughter had apparently also been excommunicated from the church. That shit's just low.

We're finally getting The Incredibles 2

Oh, and a third Cars movie, but y'know... The Incredibles 2!

I'm not a big enough fan/player of 40K to wax too poetic, but to this day I still scratch my head that there were no Skaven in Necromunda Huh?.

True, but there are space rats - the Veer-Myn - in Warpath, and hopefully soon Deadzone.

As for the Tau, they're plenty evil. They're just a lot more subtle about it. See how they deal with a native human population in Dark Crusade.
