  1. I'd be interested in any models you have. I'm going to try printing an Orca dropshot for my next print project, after the recon lance.
  2. Given the way my daughter has dived into Marvel lately, I might have to pick up the starter as well...
  3. Rambling a bit here... A lot depends on how far you want to take the contrast between figure scale and ground scale. Since 40k has no defined ground scale (e.g., 1" = 10 yards or whatever) and on top of that has no defined time scale (1 turn = 1 minute), you've got a free hand. (And the more you tinker with it, the more work you make for yoruself, even if it's fun work) For me, it's deeply unsatisfying to see a table of a theoretically futuristic wargame, with weapons that should be much more effective than modern ones, where it's as crowded as the mall on Black Friday (pre-Covid, of
  4. I'll bet it would work even better keeping all the distances the same, just using smaller models. I've done that with other 28mm games (Bolt Action) using 15mm models, and it helps a lot with the "tank traffic jam" syndrome.
  5. I dunno what rules, but I've long been interested in 15mm scaled skirmish 40k, so I'll be keeping an eye on this.
  6. Resin for sure. One of the guys from the 2ps in a pod podcast is printing himself a warmaster army. Give a listen: http://www.2psinapod.com/
  7. To be absolutely fair, while I'd really like my FLGS to stock what I want, expecting them to carry several lines of historical miniatures in (minimum) three different scales and five different time periods is probably a little unreasonable... At some point, I imagine we'll get to the point where niche markets like that really do get taken over by 3d printing in some form or another; whether that's personal ones, small point of sale operations, or the ones we already have like Shapeways. 3d printing is probably never going to be great for mass production on the scale of Asmodee or GW, but
  8. The new owner does seem to be narrowing their focus considerably. I think all their Adeptus Titanicus was on the clearance table this past weekend. I suppose it's a better business decision, but it does give me fewer reasons to go there...
  9. If Guardian has dropped it, then your best bet is Geeks & Games in Oregon City. Last I was in there (October) they still had it, and the owner is a long-time player.
  10. That's why we have one sex but two sices. (Or more, for some species, I suppose)
  11. Need some '80s kids on wheels for Stranger Things? You're covered.
  12. My 8 year old just finished reading the complete Calvin & Hobbes. Made me very happy to see her enjoy something I also enjoyed at her age.
  13. I bet that the shield is glued on wrong. It should be attached so that it's resting on the ground and the dwarf is holding the top of it. It's possible the shield is from another miniature. What does the back of the figure look like?
  14. I second this. My family does it every year; we just got through a quarter cow, and we do a regular salmon share through Iliamna Fish Company. We also used to buy lots of 20 chickens from a farm out near Yamhill, but they stopped doing it... Word of warning, though: with the current supply chain problems, even whole or half animals are getting a little more difficult to find; we've been trying to source half an organic (etc.) hog, and have had some delays because of more demand than usual. Also, if you've never been to Gartner's Meat Market on Northeast Killingsworth, you owe it to y
