MiniPainters to Make Minis

MiniPainters, the famed painting message board, is expanding into making models.

Their first mini is called Havard the Half Seen.  So far all they have are concept sketches and a prototype in the green sculpt stage.  But, it looks nice.

He’s expected for November 2007 and your pre-order, just $12 or 6 GBP, nets you a numbered limited edition certificate too.

When you’re done drooling over the below pics, head over to the official MiniPainters Model Havard the Half Seen site to place your pre-order.

Damnatus 40k Movie Petition Vid

Damnatus is the biggest, most publicized fan movie set in the Warhammer 40k universe. At least, it would have been if GW didn’t have to protect their IP, or lose them under British copyright law. So, they banned all fan films. [start sarcasm]Way to go GW![/end sarcasm]

Here’s the Youtube Damnatus Petition vid. If you want to sign the petition here’s the Petition Link. 5000 and growing!
