This broke a few days ago, so those in geekdom will already know this, but J. R. R. Tolkien’s son Christopher died this week. Hopefully, anyone who is a fan of fantasy, science fiction and most things that sprang from these genres (magic/vampire/werewolf/anything like that young adult series, anyone?) has given a thought to what Christopher Tolkien was able to do, because without him it’s quite likely we’d be decades behind where we are now in regards to the general state of fantasy and sci-fi in movies, video games, books, tabletop games, wargames and much more.

How awesome! These are from the first batch of business cards we’ve had printed, using the all-new Tiny Plastic Spacemen logo.

Thanks to my friend Paul, we’ve got an awesome new logo! How about THAT!?

Sign this petition! Now this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve read today.

Not cellulose, not alcohol…water. Harmless water. I know
Got these Horus Heresy novels for my 40th birthday from the folks at work. Luckily 3 of the play 40K with me so the gift idea was pretty easy to think of – then someone had the marvelous idea to get Games Workshop’s Jervis Johnson (game designer for many or all of the GW games, including winning an award for Blood Bowl!) to actually SIGN all three books!
