|It's the future!|
For those handful of readers who have reached middle-age, you may recall the classic game that came out of nowhere and spawned a new era of tabletop (war)gaming. No?
|Citadel Miniatures Robots!|
Perhaps this new found enthusiasm for Warhammer 40k is why Lewis gifted me his collection of Robots. They look fantastic and are extremely rare. Hardcore 40k'er Dave commented at the game last night that although he recognised them, he'd never actually seen one! They are so well thought of, other miniature companies have manufactured similar models, both in design and name. These are the originals though. The Colossus, Castellan, Conquerer and Cataphract, equiped with power arms, flamers, bolters, las-cannons, auto cannons and melta-guns!
A plethora of mechanical titans. Only the Crusader and a few weapons are missing from the line-up and who knows, they may turn up in the future? This weekend has been spent cleaning, gluing and undercoating. I based some Scouts and Squats also, to bring to the spray booth. So it begins.
|Epoxy glue. It holds a tonne!|
|Spray booth: Squats, Scouts and Robots!|
|Lewis also has classic books in his gaming collection.|
|Converted marines I bought online (thanks Jamie). Damaged in transit. I will rebuild them.|
A massive project and one that makes me think. How do we live? Are we robots, non-thinking, following simple commands. What is good in life? No need to worry, I'm not in a hurry. Middle age is a blessing.
100 REM GUESSING GAME
120 PRINT "GUESS THE NUMBER BETWEEN 1 AND 100."
140 LET X = INT(100*RND(0)+1)
150 LET N = 0
160 PRINT "YOUR GUESS";
170 INPUT G
180 LET N = N+1
190 IF G = X THEN 300
200 IF G < X THEN 250
210 PRINT "TOO LARGE, GUESS AGAIN"
220 GOTO 160
250 PRINT "TOO SMALL, GUESS AGAIN"
260 GOTO 160
300 PRINT "YOU GUESSED IT, IN"; N; "TRIES"
310 PRINT "ANOTHER GAME (YES = 1, NO = 0)";
320 INPUT A
330 IF A = 1 THEN 140
340 PRINT "THANKS FOR PLAYING"
God bless you and have a great week!
