Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the big screen again!!

3 Apr

As you well know from regular reading of this blog, I like the TMNT franchise, well parts of it, always have since the days of the old palladium RPG (which is how I got into it in the first place) So other turtles fans will be pleased to hear that the new movie is almost upon us.

Again, we’re faced with yet another Hollywood reboot, this time from Michael Bay of the recent Transformers movies (Yeah the terrible ones, gimme the cartoon anyday and that was crap!) so it could be good or bad depending on how you look at it.

Plus side, it’s got Megan Fox in it, and I’d watch most things with her in them, not for artistic merit or the story, just because she is fine! Another plus, it’s the turtles, so I’ll watch it anyway!

As you can see from the teaser trailer, they aren’t giving too much away, but apparently they are still finishing post production stuff, FX and all that, so it might well differ from the snippets in the clip.

The franchise has long had a history of reinventing itself, so the reboot is nothing new (Have you seen the new animated series?) so expect the details to change, but the core ideas stay more or less the same I imagine.

Cowabunga dudes!!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Greebo miniatures Hand of death on Indiegogo

10 Mar

I’ve mentioned Greebo miniatures before on here, and just thought I’d highlight their latest campaign.

The Hand of Death, mainly being composed of Rats and Turtles for use in fantasy football type games, are lovely little figures, heavily influenced by TMNT, but for me that indeed is a bonus. I’ve always loved all things Ninja turtles, and still do, so I was always going to love these minis. Even so they are intended for bloodbowl-esque games, there seems to be plenty of options for use with other styles of gaming, and some don’t need any adaption whatsoever.

I am a bit gutted that I don’t have cash available to get hold of some of these great figures, and am loving the Oni (above) even the eastern goblins are really good as well! Damn you greebo, for putting this on Indiegogo, at least I might have had a chance to get involved if it had been a KS!

You can check out all the options by going clicky on the link below!!

Impact! Miniatures Australian Animals Fantasy Football Team Kickstarter

13 Feb

G’day mates! Back in the day when I used to play the Palladium RPG TMNT (teenage mutant ninja turtles as I’m sure your aware!) there was a supplement about the mutants creatures of Australia “Mutants of Oz” I think it was called, well that was my first thought when I saw these little beauties! Although for use as a fantasy football setting, there seem to be plenty of options for these critters including heads and weapon hands, so it would be easy to stick them in other settings without too much hassle.

I love the dingo optional “baby” hand, no disrespect to the famous Chamberlain case from years ago, but attention to details like this really highlight this set as a clever and unique set of miniatures!

If that has perked up your interest, click on the link and have a look!
