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!
