Kyle, one of the newest members of our crew generated an updated version of the Texas "Come and Take It" flag to be more Badab appropriate. I think it's a winner and we've decided to label ourselves "Team Come and Take It" should we ever make it to an event.
Unfortunately, he has decided to join forces with the Badab secessionists and the loyalists do not intend to let him hang around long enough to collect any royalties.
It's sad really.
Which causes me to wonder, why do such creative minds feel the need to toss off the beneficent yoke of the Imperium and strike off on their own misguided paths?
I suppose that is some debate we Loyalists might entertain after the victorious conclusion of this campaign as we do not worry ourselves too much about the clouded states of mind that seem to be a characteristic of the heretics.

Gar came up with the interesting idea of creating the sides of a ship and forcing the attacker to actually fight through the hull to get into the ship's interior. I'm kind of jazzed about the idea and since I've been collecting all sorts of off plastic shapes for the past couple of years, I think we'll finally get to use some of these things along with black foam board to try and present a table that doesn't look like urban ruins.
Gar has some dark grey felt for the floor and with various metallic/black/silver shapes we can simulate some interesting terrain.
We're also going to use Space Hulk tiles to represent smaller battles and ships as I've seen some of the members of Bolter and Chainsword use them to good effect.
So some pretty fun stuff coming up.
Switching now to the Bug Channel in 3, 2, 1...
So here are some "Hollywood" shots I took at our local GW (Katy).
Now I need to get the other 60 going and work up the Lictors.
Also, here's some Genestealer Funnies, which may or may not become a regular feature.
