Khurasan Miniatures, Chewk

Khurasan Miniatures recently released the Chewk.  I really like these little creatures.  If you're into Star Wars, you would probably really like these even more.

ArtCrime Productions, Valkyries

A reader had asked to see some comparisons of the ArtCrime Productions Valkyries next to some Dream Pod 9 Heavy Gears.   Here are some comparisons of the of the Valkyries next to some GZG 2mm/6mm figures and some Dream Pod 9 Southern Heavy Gears.  As you can see the Dream Pod 9 Heavy Gears fit in nicely with the 15mm stuff from ArtCrime Productions.

Freeline Skates

As you may or may not know besides my passion for miniatures, I also have a passion for sports and fitness.  If you're looking to do something fun, different and non-gaming related this year, you might want to check out the Freeline Skates.  The Freeline OG skates retail for $149.00, which is pretty inexpensive compared to other sports and equipment.  Heck it is even cheaper than most dear I say 40K armies. :-)   The learning curve on Freeline skates is relatively low, so beginners should be skating in no time.  Freeline skates don’t require special shoes, so just about any shoe will work.

Freeline skates were invented by Ryan Farrelly, a lifelong snow boarder, surfer and downhill skate boarder. Ryan first began tinkering with building a better downhill board as an engineering student at the University of San Diego. A few years later, he was back in his hometown of San Francisco, bombing down hills with his friends, and still thinking about what his “next ride” would be. As he was building a new downhill board, it suddenly hit him that he didn’t need the board at all, but could ride down the hill on the trucks alone with two wheels inline under each foot for an awesome new sideways ride. In 2003, Freeline was born and the first skates were sold to the public in late 2005.

Freeline skates feature dual independent skates, with two custom “wide” Freeline wheels on each skate, one in front of the other, that are ridden with a sideways and perpendicular stance. Freeline skates emulate the “carving” movement common to surf and snow boards, and the circular movement and tricks seen with skateboards, at a fraction of the cost of those sports. The individual Freeline skates, when ridden together, produce exceptional speed, agility, and natural self-propulsion, allowing for uphill motion. Freeline skates ride faster than many skateboards, inline skates, scooters and most bicycles.

The dual skates’ cutting-edge design creates an exciting, new street or skate park riding experience through a faster and more dynamic means of downhill and uphill skating. Riders can achieve high levels of traction and carve smooth “S” turns while riding downhill, or switch to an undulating motion to quickly and efficiently propel on flat ground or uphill. These attributes also make Freeline skates an ideal cross-training companion to surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, inline skates and a variety of other sports.

Khurasan Miniatures, Karkwagon

 Soon Khurasan Miniatures will be releasing the Karkwagon.  The Karkwagon was designed for sci fi or Weird World War II gaming, and was sculpted by TMP's "Grabula." It is not a CAD design, it was made the old fashioned way! The kit is all resin and easy to assemble. The spare boxes are optional and any or all may be left off. The mail hull piece, not including the tread assemblies, is about 2 1/4" (57mm) long. Coming soon.
