Orktimus Prime: Transforming Warhammer 40K Custom Miniature

OrktimusPrimeOpen

I don’t often admit to this, but a very long time ago (20 years if not more) I tried to become a wargamer… I say tried because it never happened, I bought a lot of miniatures then discovered that when you live in Saudi Arabia there aren’t very many places to actually wargame.

Anyway, that and the fact that this is a Transformers themed custom miniature are just two of the many reasons I find this piece by “madscuzzy” (Deviant Art Page) awesome, the other reasons mainly have to do with the fact that it is in fact actually awesome…

You can read a full interview with the creator over at Tabeltop Geeks, I’m not going to replicate that here. They also have in progress images of the piece.

On a slight tangent, many many years ago one of my many internet handles was Skuzzy so in a parallel universe you could be reading this on Skuzzy.net…

Honda’s ASIMO Has Come Along By Leaps And Bounds Can Now Do Both Among Other Things

I remember when ASIMO had trouble walking, now he can do all kinds of stuff. Its not long before he goes rogue and starts killing people.
Then our only hope will be a group of four hot women who will dress up in powered suits of armour to fight the robot menace.

You can also look a a Flickr Gallery of the same project. I think I might watch Bubblegum Crisis tonight…
