Yeah, I gave our miniatures game that name back when I was young and stupid (and thought I was being clever). According to the History of Bellicose it used to mean 'romantic hamster' (yet again, back when I was young/stupid/non-clever). We have had many comments about that actually. Most don't know it is an English word. We just like to think we are improving vocabulary one table-top miniatures game at a time!
In italian , just like for my spanish neighbour Reivaj, "Bellico" (the accent is on the "e") is an adjective that means "for the war". "Bellicoso" is another adjective used to define the "mood" of an aggressive person, but it implies in a negative meaning, as Wordreference properly explain: www.wordreference.com/iten/Bellicoso

I think in an alternate reality the game was called "Must...Kill..." But in that universe, it was mistaken as an instructional manual for serial killers and the staff of Sanity Studios were all hauled off to prison.
As mentioned in a previous message, Bellicose means "romantic hamster" in the ancient tongue. The gods who created the world of Bellicose often turn to the ancient tongue when they need to name something. It is evident, however, that the ancients were remarkably silly. It hasn't stopped the gods, though.
For example, another world created by some of the same gods was a planet-sized pile of dung, which they named "Krakasplod". Sounds appropriate; but in the ancient tongue, this means "pock-marked granmother's tofu soup" which is not even relevant. Why would any language have a single word that means something like that?
Anyhoo, Krakasplod was a popping place for a while - lots of microbial life-forms and creepy-crawly things. The life on the planet eventually died out. It turns out that dung is not as much of a renewable resource as the gods thought it would be. The gods of Bellicose and the ancients seemed to have silliness in common.
I hope nobody was eating when they read this - I just thought everyone deserved to know...
bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted
