Kickstarter Pick of the Week: Hero Forge: 3D Printed Minis

This weeks Kickstarter pick of the week is Hero Forge: 3D printed minis brought to us by, yes that’s right, Hero Forge.

As many gamers will tell you there are hundreds and hundreds of minis and not ONE that looks like their character. Sometimes if their lucky they’ll be able to find that that ‘more or less’ matches. Meaning, right gender, right race but wrong weapons, armor and hair or some arrangement of these. Hero Forge is bringing us the solution!

Customizable, print on demand 3D printed minis. No longer will you have to accept that mini that doesn’t really fit your character. Now, using Hero Forge’s sophisticated parts system and web UI you will be able to not only pick gender, race and weapons, but also facial expression, hairstyles, and equipment.

As you can see, these minis got game! With their customization along with their character builder that allows you to save your mini and make changes to it as you character progresses and the amazing level of detail that printing can provide over mass market injection molds, these minis are a high tech leaf in an otherwise analog world. And we have the ability to get in on the ground floor.

This Kickstarter has already funded and reached 6 of their 8 stretch goals. With 14 days left you have nothing to lose but the most awesome customized by you mini out there.

Just a little longer…

Life has exploded. Liz and I had to cancel the recording of the podcast this Sunday due to illness. Now our guest can’t make it. I just started work and I REALLY miss my afternoon nap. (Hey its naptime somewhere) Liz is still sick. And my husband has the stink eye on at the thought of me missing tonight’s game.

With this in mind, Liz and I have decided to put off this weeks recording until this next Sunday. It gives me time to reschedule with my guest or get a new one, I will have plenty of time for editing and napping AND hopefully (fingers crossed) Liz will finally get her household unsickified.

This Sunday however, guest or no guest, throwing up or not, we will be recording Episode 4 of Geek Chic.

Thanks for your patience!

Lingerie, Geek Style

Have you ever thought, “I would really like to give my geek guy a gift he’d never expect”? Or how about, “Man, I’d really like to do some Cos-play, but it’s bedtime”? Perhaps it was, “All this Fredricks of Hollywood stuff just doesn’t fit my style”?

Well then my geeky girlfriends, you are in luck! Recently, Japanese lingerie retailer Peach John teamed up with Neoko Takeuchi to bring you Sailor Moon Lingering.

These will be released in February and you can purchase them through the Bandai site. Each set cost 4980 yen or about $48.50.

Don’t forget, Valentines is right around the corner and your geek guy really has earned some time with his favorite Sailor Scout: you.

But if you are like me and want something you can wear in public, I found a seamstress on Etsy that had exactly what I wanted. A bathing suit!!

These can be purchased from SciFeyeCandy’s Etsy store.  Like the Lingerie, all of the core character sets are available.

I’m going to get my bikini body on and splash and play in the pool wearing one of these darlings.

How about you?
