Mancave Monday – Star Trek Goodies

Yeah yeah I know…..I said I wouldn’t post again this week, well that was until I got home and found some awesome Star Trek Attack Wing goodies waiting for me.  What is it they say about the best laid plans of mice and men and all that?

Well when I got home this evening it was my intention to put together some Star Wars Armada stuff but waiting for me was an awesome package….my Sakharov, a Type 7 Shuttlecraft from the episodic OP event “Peak Performance” and my USS Hood, Excelsior class Federation Starship from the Q-Continuum Month 1 OP event “Encounter at Farpoint“.

These ships have been available at OP Events in the states for a while now and we’re just beginning to see them appear over here in the UK.  My FLGS, Youngs Hobbies, will be hosting an event in the future to enable players to win these ships.  I’ll probably end up volunteering as TO for those events and possibly playing if we need an extra player.  Already owning 3 of each I wont be taking prizes if I do.

I’m a very happy geek this evening.  Just finished watching WWE – Payback and now preparing to watch Game of Thrones whilst I was preparing these pictures and writing this blog entry.

Both ships have already been reviewed elsewhere so Im not going to reinvent the wheel by doing it again.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Guess I ought to go to Ikea and buy another Display Case as I have too many ships for the current ones.  What a nice problem to have eh? #firstworldgeekproblems

Enjoy and let me know what you think by adding a comment.

Cybertronic Faction Inspiration

As part of building my Cybertronic troops for PRODOS’ Warzone Resurrection wargame I have started a Pinterest detailing all the images and ideas I’m using as inspiration.  It includes but is not limited to:-

Gort from The Day The Earth Stood Still

Cylons from Battlestar Galactica

ABC Warriors from Judge Dredd

Borg from the Star Trek Universe

Jaeger crews from Pacific Rim

IG-88 from the Star Wars Universe

Sentinels from The Matrix Trilogy

Necrons, the big bad robotic army in Games Workshops, a certain other gaming companies, flagship wargame set in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe

I’ve invited others to participate and they can add images as they see fit.  I’ve extended that invite out to other WZR players on the FB Page:-

Here is the link to the Pinterest:-

I hope you agree with my suggestions and ideas, if not feel free to suggest some of your own.
