A full MP5 is likely too big and unwieldy if you are restricting them to the flight deck. Handguns are probably the limit. Even the ones with the retractable stock? Yup, your average comercial aircraft has a flight deck where most of it is in touching range of the pilot or copilot. Consider it bein...

New multi part chaos marines: ( Image ) I like the poses, but not sure about the new heads/helmet. Their exaggeratedly evil/demonic looking visages seem to be a throwback to the old 2nd Edi CSM. I like the dude who is holding his ammo belt with one hand in particular though. Seems like the ...

Okay, just to be clear that we are on the same page here, vikings are not a people group, it is an occupational group. Sometimes the two are used interchangeably, but not every Scandinavian during the migration period was a viking. Usually historians use more specific terms. For example, a Swedish ...

1. 25-308 exists as a wildcat but isn't at all popular as its pretty much identical to the 1920s 257 Roberts which is available commercially as are about a bazillion other wildcats and comercial cartridges that occupy that space. 2 None of them have been militarily successful as you start running i...

.280 can keep trucking forever. There are still large armies that stay on .308. What about a .250 caliber bullet with roughly the powderload of a .308? 25-308 exists as a wildcat but isn't at all popular as its pretty much identical to the 1920s 257 Roberts which is available commercially as are ab...

Steering away from strategy games I think one of the most underutilized game genres would be focusing on personal narratives in an action/adventure or rpg.Just a second ago I was think of a first person game where you play as an Or, get paid and buy stuff with teef.

Except it really wouldn't, it would have the opposite effect, which is why GW has insisted tooth and nail that nobody is allowed to make a game like the table top. Just to illustrate the point. A couple of weeks ago I purchased the chimera model in a GW store. The model (when assembled) will repres...

Or is that a violation of international law, or possibly even a declaration of war? Shooting satellites down isn't impossible but it's not easy either. It'...

Y’all heard of this Aztec weapon called a "macuahuitl", also known as "a fucking stick with obsidian shards stuck to ‘em"? I wouldn’t call it dumb or stupid as they did their job quite splendidly well. The main focus/objective in the Aztec flowers wars was not complete destructi...

Putting infantry in tanks isn't important when the tanks can only move at walking speed. Just don't use a rhomboid. It was the last thing I wanted to do. I wasn't initially planning on making actual tanks per se, but more over implementing Armored Transports, which would develop into the Armored Gu...

So I was wondering if I could get some help on determining my first WWI-era tank design? It wouldn't likely find any usage during the actual war happening during 1902-(still to be determined as the RP is still ongoing), but would be built afterwards. Really what form your tank takes is going to dep...

I'm gonna catch flak for this (excuse the pun), but the F-35 Lightning II. Yes, it's nice having a single-seat multirole that can fly up its own asshole, but I'm all for having dedicated aircraft for dedicated roles.
