The hit animation series on Netflix continues, as this reboot comes to it's fifth season.Like season 4 and the following 6, it's a rather short one coming in at 6 episodes, and that is the reason 2018 saw no less then 3 seasons being released for example by using this formula of short arcs per season.PlotPrince Lotor is still a capture of our heroes, and in order to prove he really wants peace keeps providing the paladin's with information on their missions.He leads them to battle against the ressurected Zarkon, and in a mission where Pidge's father is finally rescued, he faces him in mortal battle.  With the help of the Lion's he finally gains the upperhand and destroys his father at last, clearing the way for peace.To that end, he needs to speak to his inner Altean and together with the princess to discover a mythical planet, birthplace of Altean alchemy.  Now as the ruling emperor of the Galra empire, he sees this the perfect way to make a renewed alliance to secure the galaxy...What I Liked Abou

Inq28 – Sequitor Inquisitor conversion

This is a conversion based upon the Easy-to-Build sequitors, that I bought at the opening of the local Warhammer store. The sequitors are an incredible good deal at 3 for 12 EUR, very characterful large miniatures. The sprues are pre-coloured in a bright gold. I seperated the pieces I need, from the Sequitor prime.

Westworld season 2

When HBO released their "next Game of Thrones" last year, I devoured it, and couldn`t wait week after week for the new episode.The fact I only today finished the second season, months after it ended, might already give you an indication on how I feel about the second one...Plot (from Rotten Tomatoes)Season 2 of the drama series deals with the aftermath of the massacre of the Delos board members that closed the previous season. As different timelines overlap, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) puts together an army of hosts and hunts the survivors, planning to take over the real world; meanwhile, Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) tries to understand what happened and regain control of the park. Others embark on different but related quests: Maeve (Thandie Newton) goes looking for her daughter, helped by Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) and Lee (Simon Quarterman); Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) tries to find a solution to the situation without revealing his identity; from beyond the grave, Ford (Anthony Hopkins) ropes William (Ed

Sci-Fi Soldiers with long coat

In July I covered the Bolt Action Winter German kit by Warlord Games and the possibilities within the game / setting it self, using it for conversions. As the Bolt Action plastic range is 28mm heroic scale, a bit overdrawn, it can be used as a base for all kinds of longcoat troops. A brief […]

Boom! Zap! v 1.1 added to the Digital Rules Library

I have added the playtest for BOOM! Zap! to the 3PoS Digital Library.  I haven’t had a lot of volunteers to help playtest, so this might spur some interest. Boom! Zap! is the spiritual cousin to The Rules with No Name, a western skirmish game that appeared in an old MWAN, long ago.  It covers a wide range of pulp SF skirmishes, in different milieus. I am still working on it, but feel free to download and send feedback.   [contact-form]

Zoo season 2

Noshi really loves this series, and as such we shortly after finishing the first season, we sat down behind our Netflix to go for season 2 of 3.And the war the animals wage on mankind is taking a turn for the worse.PlotAfter we left with the team in danger of the escaped zoo animals, we find out Jackson is for some reason immune to the beast attacks, probably as a result of the bite he suffered in the first season.  The animals now have been mutating to what is called "phase 2" and there have been 7 species identified as the key for the mutations... including a sabretooth cat, thought extinct, but apparently still living on a south american island (and yes, this IS Jurassic Parks Isla Nublar... well, the same island for the shots at least x-D).But what is more, the disease is apparently also spreading to humans, and now the team has to find a way to stop the Noah Objective project.  The loss of human life would proves to be bigger then the estimation projects, and as such General Davies must be stop
