Off Topic: Transforming Toys painting and gaming blog

So, everyone knows by now that I like blogging. Lots of different blogs, for different topics, and different games, so here's yet another one!

I've reliving 80's fun watching Transformer's Cartoons, and I've been reading Marvel and IDW comics, and playing Transformers computer games, and I thought, why isn't there a collect and paint and play miniatures game about transforming toys like Transformers and Gobots.

So I've decided to collect cheap transforming toys, and to paint them up as if they were miniatures game pieces, and to make miniatures rules for them.

I'm blogging the collecting, painting, and rule making, at this new blog:

Here's a glimpse of what to expect:

QuadCommand Miniatures Game

QuadCommand Miniatures Game.

This is off-topic, not 40k related, but for anyone who's interested, I've started developing a '3D Print on Demand' science fiction game, featuring four-legged giant war machines at a micro scale of about 1:500 (2mm is aproximately 1 meter).

By making the 'Quads' (Armoured Assault Quad Walkers) smaller than typical miniatures, it means that the tabletop landscape can be much larger - creating big battlefields without needing big space (or if you have big space, creating huge battlefields!). I'm also going to do both papercraft and 3D Printed scenery options for ruining up Earth of the future.

Development is the very early days, but I'm blogging the development of the game as well as prototype miniatures experiments over here:
