Back from the Movies...

I just got back from seeing Captain America and was pretty happy with it.  At the end of the movie there was the Trailer for Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers which really rocked my world, it's coming out on May 2012.

There are some Avengers promos going at SDCC, four character posters being given away by Marvel at their booth and Captain America's new Avengers uniform in a glass case. Here are the shots:

Iron Man

The Black Widow
 I might go see it again with the kids... - Cheers.

Pre-Order Armour Sets Vs. Standard Chapters

This is straight from Space Marine (THQ)

THQSledgehammer here with an update on the pre-order armor sets and the standard chapters in-game.

As some of the eagle-eyed fans out there will have noticed from the customization videos released today the game includes most chapters which you can customize yourself, not to mention a badge and color system that allows you to make the others. Now this has caused a bit of confusion as to what the difference between these chapters and the pre-order content is.

The simple answer is there is a basic version of every pre-order chapter in the game which you can customize, so it doesn’t matter where you buy it, you will be able to build your own Space Wolf, Black Templar and Blood Raven, not to mention the forces of Chaos. However, the pre-order content includes very cool elements for these classes which will not be available any other way.

Take the Space Wolves for example, the pre-order set includes some awesome unique wargear which any Space Wolf champion would be proud of. The character skin includes a wolf pelt, a wolf head design back-pack, custom chest emblem, helmet and knee pads making the player stand out even more on the battlefield.

Below are images of all of the pre-order skins alongside the standard variant (not customized) available to everyone. Hopefully this will help you decide which pack is right for you.  Don’t forget that we have limited quantities of the collector’s edition, so if you were on the fence because you didn’t think you could play as your favorite chapter, now’s the time to pre-order!

My Son's Grandfather...

A wonderful man....

WOW! Look at what I found! A Tron Light Cycle!

My wife and I just went shopping for a new blender and usually go to the store 5 Below to look for cheap toys that I can use for gaming.  When low and behold I see in the two dollar rack TRON Die cast Vehicles!  90% of the Vehicles are out of scale but the one thing that caught my eye was spot on.
Kevin Flynn's Light Cycle!
It will be perfect my Son's Eldar Tron Army I'm working on.  They only had two, but I will keep on searching in every 5 Below store until  I can have a squad of 5. 




I can't wait to use them!    - Cheers!

The Thing

One of my favorite all time movies....
Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller "The Thing," paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they're infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet.

Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up.

When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew's pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.

"The Thing" serves as a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 film of the same name.

Trygon Prime Project: Details and Done.

OK this is the last night I'm giving for this model, I've added detailing, a finale wash and just a basic black base. (The owner can base it if he likes).  So this took me three full evenings, not too bad. Here are the last photos:










Thanks for watching...
