Given how many people believe humans and dinosaurs coexisted, that the average person can't tell an early synapsid (the clade that eventually evolved into mammals) from dinosaurs (which eventually evolved into birds) doesn't surprise me in the least.

He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Or a Deathstrike missile base?

If you are looking for a cheap "clutter" to decorate your gaming table, 1920-1950 cars in between 1:43 and 1:60 scales are ideal. Give them some weathering or maybe hit them with a hammer a couple of times before putting them into a fireplace to create a realistically-looking wreck and you are good to go.

Good for wrecks or Ork battle wagons if nothing else.

And a possibility for my on-hold landing craft project. Replace the command tower, add some engines...

It COULD work.

Something of interest to ship and starship builders...







47 modern ships, planes and choppers. Cut em up and glue em to a Space Hulk, paint them up as transports and escorts, heck write your own South China Sea wargame! For $15 why not?

Looks like some of the aircraft could work with 10 or 15mm minis, even if only as terrain. That's a great find.

I'll be sure to post pics when I get mine. It looks like you get at least 2 of everything (black team and grey team) so some things like stacking the subs hull to hull to make a 3d ship are easy.

Lots of turrets and wings to clip off too.

Fingers crossed it's styrene and not PVC. Even though I know in my heart it's PVC.

Years ago I used WW1'ish toy army men cannons to make flavorful mounts for my IG heavy weapons.

Now clearly they are way too big to truly be man-portable, but 40k isn't about logic and I think that Lascannons that look like light artillery is just cool. I just pulled the guns off, put the lascannon bodies in and attached the power packs with a piece of bass guitar wire.

Using the original mount for the Autocannon, putting Lascannons on these mounts and making the missile launcher's standing-shoulder mounted, you can easily get 3 HW teams out of 1 HW sprue.

They were unavailable for quite a while, but they're back and cheap as chips.

Interestingly, the spindly wheels have been replaced with larger wheels that look even more 40k.

One of the sillier ideas floating in my head is to reproduce these guys using IG figures.

If it doesn't make sense, when I was growing up almost all the army men were these exact poses in this glossy green plastic (the tan army didn't appear till Desert Storm in 1991).

Any of our resident 3d sculptors interested in the idea?

Apparently Aliens toys are back. I see them on Amazon but I think they may be Wal Mart exclusives so check there too.
