    I had this figure sitting around for ages, from a Westwind Kickstarter I think. I wanted another model armed with two pistols and this guy was perfect. With the big star on his chest, I decided on …

    This is the only gorilla in my collection. This figure comes from the first Bones release. It’s basic, but does the job of being… what it is.

    Greetings Terrans, I have a very brief post to share today – a tiny bit of progress on my Slaaneshi warband. I need about 11 more humans to add to the roster, and looking over my hoard, I tho…

  • For the last 30 years, monopolies could only be broken up if the corporation bought other companies "without the intention of of forming a “monopoly.”

    With the intention of forming a monopoly?

  • All 5 'Mad Max' movies, ranked
  • TLDR the article ranks:

    1. Road Warrior

    2. Fury Road

    3. Furiosa

    4. Mad Max

    5. Beyond Thunderdome

    I personally don't like slotting enjoyment of movies into hard ranked categories. Movies can have aspects that are kind of prismatic, where depending on my mood at the time of thinking about them I might like or dislike what they've done. Beyond Thunderdome is a movie with a lot of these elements. It is in many ways a great and perfect third movie in the original series, being the furthest along in the timeline and showing humanity and civilization have gone the most awry from present day. It does a lot to retroactively shape perceptions of the Mad Max franchise that people tend to ignore.

    And that's just a preamble to an actually discussion about one of the movies.

  • Olympic Competitors 1896 vs 2020
  • This is just a very specific tangent. It is obviously different than the baseline shooting experience. It would be difficult to mistake this kind of target shooting for anything resembling practical shooting. That's alright. It can exist as its own thing.

  • Yes it’s nice that 3D modelers have gotten to this point to help with OOP sculpts.

  • It’s an official mini that’s from the 3rd edition Space Hulk box. It’s real shame how limited a run these boxes were.

  • Nothing is too niche for modders to remaster, not even a '90s Star Wars FPS expansion pack where you play as Luke Skywalker's weird non-canon wife rescuing my favorite Expanded Universe dork
  • Luke Skywalker had a weird wife named Mara Jade

    Yes, the old Starr Wars [cool typo] Expanded Universe was a bit of an odd duck, and you can maybe see why Disney shunted it to the side in favor of a new continuity.

    The smug flippancy of this writer, good lord. That preamble’s tone towards the EU was entirely unnecessary for an article on a game mod.

  • Work in progress genestealers. Washed only skin on left, highlighted skin on right.
  • Sure. I don't normally do genestealers or tyranids, so the methods were all being developed on the fly.

    The models were all primed black. The carapaces were drybrushed with Vallejo Model Color Grey Blue, then Pale Grey Blue. At that point, the second drybrushing had left them too light and chalky colored so I used a DIY blue ink wash all over to get them back to a more saturated blue.

    The exposed flesh is all Citadel Pink Horror, then washed with Citadel's purple wash, then 50/50 Pink Horror and an ivory paint. (Normally I'd transition between shade and highlights with more intermediate layers, but I'm used to doing small batches compared to such a large group. I'm counting on the genestealers looking decent as group rather than individuals with this paintjob.)

    Bases were all drybrushed with Vallejo Luftwafe blue, then Pale Grey Blue, then Vallejo Rust wash applied to details.

  • And now you get the bad ending
  • Fallout 1 absolutely does it as well. Even the animated dialog the Overseer gives is different, as he gets frustrated with the dumb player character.

    One of the more famous Fallout 1 dumb events is that the first super mutant in the game, who is guarding the water chip, will grunt back and forth with the player and then step aside allowing the player to pass by.
