LEGO Universe Closed Beta Key giveaway

That is right folks! A beta key giveaway to the upcoming LEGO universe MMO is here for the taking. I figured all the 24/7 MMO players would eat this up. I don't really want it since I don't sit in front of my computer all night anymore so my lack of giving a crud is your gain and key to pursuing those little digital carrots!

So here are the rules:

Post a comment here (ONCE) and after this weekend (Monday night) I will randomly generate a number and match that with a posted commenter. I will then simply forward you all the activation info. If you spam this thread I will delete your first comment and ban you.

Have fun, keep an eye on this post! I will be shutting off the ability to comment on this post Monday night at 6pm CST

Information about the game:

Hopes for a plastic Steel Legion or IG Vets? Not so fast...

While I like the new line of models put out by the Wargaming Factory they would take a quite a bit of conversion work and chopping to make them usefull in my army lists as say Veterans or anything other than regular troopers.

I like to have a lot of melta guns and special weapons and this line of troopers has pretty much a standard load out of weaponry available. Flamer, grenade launcher, laser rifle. That is about it. You can watch the review below and see what you would do to mod them up and maybe prove me wrong.

Still the idea of using them for SOMETHING in my IG army is interesting.

The line of figures go live in May and you can pre order now on their site:

18 multi-part/multi-pose hard plastic (polystyrene) 28mm future Greatcoat troopers! 6 full sprues each containing 38 parts! 228 parts per box!

We aren't dead...and WIP Valkyrie

I have been working on a Valkyrie for my IG army. I actually have two now, not sure I want one to be a Vendetta yet or not, but building them is time consuming enough good grief.
