Transformers Devastation

You may or may not know by now, but I am a huge fan of Transformers. Tied with Star Wars, it’s my favourite entertainment brand and my all-time top toy franchise.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

by .

Anyone with even a passing knowledge of the Warhammer 40K universe can tell their bolters from their meltaguns and their Orks from their Eldar.  Which makes the sheer level of detail that Relic has gone into in Space Marine all the more impressive.  Rather than paying mere lip service to the fans, they have sought… Read more »
