Hey, folks! Sorry I haven't been on around here much lately. In fact, real-life commitments kept me away from gaming almost entirely for several months. But things have settled down a bit now and I'm back at the keyboard and the craft table. Right now, I'm working on assembling an elaborate table for Warhammer 40K: Kill Team, using print-and-play terrain. Anchoring the set-up is Dave Graffam's amazing Babylon: Toxic Sands SF model kit.
I was initially put off by what seemed like a high price tag on the Babylon sets, but I picked them up as a bundle during one of Dave's sales a year or so ago. I didn't know what I'd use them for, and frankly, I was a bit confused and overwhelmed by them at first. But once I realized that they'd make excellent terrain for Kill Team, I gave the line a closer look, and WOW, am I glad I did! I assembled a few pieces from the Toxic Sands set, thinking they'd go well with my Mars-based Adeptus Mechanicus kill team, and I was hooked. These sets are infinitely flexible and extensible, allowing you to create massive, unique layouts for miniatures wargaming in just minutes (once they're assembled, of course!). I just can't tell you how fantastic I think these kits are.
But just because I can't tell you, doesn't mean I won't try! I'm two posts into a series on putting this Kill Team board together over on my blog, Print and Play Gamer. People don't normally connect cardstock modelling with Games Workshop games, but I'm proving that you can use top-quality printable terrain with the best-available 3D plastic miniatures to create an unforgettable wargaming experience. Check out the series, starting with the first post, Work in Progress: Kill Team!

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
