In many ways, things are pretty rough right now, but there are still plenty of things I'm thankful for. I'm thankful for my family and my various circles of friends, including those I've made through the 40K blogosphere. I'm thankful for my cat. I'm thankful I live in a state where Medicaid covers my HRT. I'm thankful for the Native protesters fighting to protect the millions of people who depend on the Missouri River for access to safe water. I'm thankful for the diversity and resilience of the human species, that we have created so many wonderful things, and somehow still haven't managed to wipe ourselves out.

Whether or not it's Thanksgiving where you live, I hope you all have things worth being thankful for, today and every day. Y'all have a good one now, y'hear!

Dakka Dakka-Back: GW Provides House-Rules for a Great Kitbash

I've seen a few variants on this conversion/concept over the years, and always thought it was cool. So I was very happy to see that GW is starting to put out even unofficial Rules for stuff like this. Seeing them getting back into supporting functionalist kitbashing and converting, rather than just building stuff out of the box, or at most some purely aesthetic mods, is really great to see again.

I know I won't be able to use it in Tournaments, but since I have a set of StormRaven sponsons, sitting around, I'm totally going to be building them up some way that I can magnetize them on the side of one of my Razorbacks so I can run this in casual Games.

As might be expected, it's pretty badly overpriced for something on a Rhino chassis, but it's still cool just to have semi-official support for stuff like this. Check out the Datasheet here.
