    hmm, great idea! Although, when 3d printers go cheap I KNOW that warhammer models will be up on TPB for download.

    This sounds... great!

    I've always enjoyed wargaming, but the only experience I've ever had with miniatures was a friend of mine who owned some Warhammer armies and allowed me to use one in some mock battles with him. I was looking to get one myself and noticed the exorbitant prices one had to pay to even get one, pretty stock, army.

    This definitely appeals to me, many thanks.

    Another option, that I use sometimes, would be cardboard or laminated paper cutouts, mounted on standard bases. I think the old Battletroops/Clantroops game used something similar, as does the new edition of OGRE/G.E.V. Alternately, you could fold the paper into 3D objects; this works best for things that have clear, defined, sharp edges like tanks, mecha etc.

    What experiment are you talking about?

    As for different human races, in the world of Nova Mundi they have been around since at least the end of the 21st century, and becoming more varied and numerous as the 22nd century wore on.

    In fact, I think I will make another article on that very subject. Watch this space.

    I don't think so. Nobody but ourselves is in a position to manage our own fate.

    Very interesting stuff noxion, although i admit i don't understand all of it.

    Out of interest, this Celestia program, would someone who don't know much about space etc find it easy enough to use?

    It fits the IAU definition.

    Why exactly is ceres a dwarf planet and not an asteroid , is it because of the sheer size of it ?
  18. Coggeh's Avatar
    Wow cool post , 3rd time reading it trying to understand some stuff but really interesting .

    Keep it up .

    Ah, Celestia. I actually have that program (plus a lot of add-ons), though on a different machine. Using Celestia can give one a very good idea of the scales of the universe.

    If you don't have it already, I strongly suggest downloading the space simulation program called Celestia:

    I've been using it for years, and I bet it could be a great teaching tool, too.
