WIP thread people! Post your mini's/terrain or whatever it is you're building, and let /tg/ tell you thin your paints. Any advice you have to ask or give, feel free to post it here.
My family came up this weekend and dumped on me 3 brother's worth of Warhammer Fantasy (and one or two LotR minis) so I've got plenty to work with alongside my Napoleonics. Orcs, Goblins, Lizardmen, Empire and High Elves. And one Britannian Knight which will probably just be redone as an Empire Knight instead.
What are you working on /tg/?
CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY

It's just another usual day, and you're sitting at your computer, complaining about your nerd stuff, WHEN SUDDENLY, the green orb thing from Heavy Metal appears in your room and gives you a choice:
You are getting transported into a system/setting of your choice, as a class of your choice, but you WILL choose, or you're getting to spend the rest of your miserable existence as an NPC in the worst setting you know of.
There's a catch, though. There's no character generation here. Oh no, you're going there with your stats, as the orb judges them to be, and your "b-but I'm the most intelligent person I know" crap won't fly with him, meaning most of you won't excel at anything, and will never have the power of your PCs.
You will, however, keep all your knowledge of the system, and the rules that functions by, and can potentially use that to your advantage.
You may choose your (base only) race and gender, though.
Now, what is your choice?

So, the first thread died, and well there was general interest so hey why the fuck not, let's continue from where we left off.
The first thread is here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26667329/
A general consensus of what's going on here.
Setting: A take on earth where Bullets infused with energy called Nova-Caps has brought about a 2nd gunslinger's rennisance to the point, people who use Nova-Caps in any way, shape or form are called "Slingers."
Setting Location: All over the planet earth but focus's on 2 specific Islands; Valhalla Island which is located in the ring of fire within the pacific, the other island is Tatarus Island located within the equatorial region of the Atlantic ocean possibly by the African continent??
Both Islands are considred to be massive Leyline Hot-spots and such optimum for Nova-Cap creation, various country's have divided up the island into several provinces, not unlike how Huffman Island from the front mission series of video games was divided.
What needs to be done?: A whole damn lot, Adjusting the currently discussed "Slinger" Archtypes, create more unique ones based more upon melee combat than ranged combat, Discussion into Nova-Caps themselves, Finding and or creating a system to play this game in as well as work on and refine Slinger Culture.
Fluff?: There has been some defined fluff, the most major being the Heart's-12 a group of 12 lady gunslingers and the odd character and or place and some tidbits about the islands. Also it seems the majority of fluff and some game play terms are affiliated with poker, blackjack and such related things.
What can I do to help?: Fluff, write ,discuss, suggest and most of all have fun.

My friend and I were debating AI rulers earlier, and this was our result. We realized that although an AI monarch can create maximum efficiency, its limit is that the values you put in are maximized on the way out. In other words, a machine built to create "prosperity" will eventually even with everyone housed in perfectly safe bio-coffins being force fed food in their sleep whiling dreaming of sex, forever "safe, sated, and entertained", as their program entailed.
This led to use wondering, what if someone introduced a truly absurd value-goal like "Promote Pancakes"? Our answer? An alien civilization made up of an AI Program Monarch, who spreads pancakes everywhere. He successfully converted his home world into pancake based life, and has sent his horrible battery children out into the stars, to seek new worlds to pancakeaform. The idea we next had was this.
President Truman learned of the existence of the Pancakian Collectives, and knew they would take decades to reach Earth from their present position. So, he introduced, in secret, Operation Weaponize Fat People, to Congress, which passes unanimously due to no one bothering to read the minor bill it was attached too. Over the next few decades, Americans were introduced to fattier, and fattier foods [hence rising obesity rates], in the hopes that when the time came, we'd be ready.
Now that year is 2015. The aliens have arrived, sent by their mad alien AI god, to transform us all into walking foodstuffs. Our only defense against the alien hordes, is MOPA [Mechanized Obese People of America].
