A few things to talk about in this journal, lets get right to em! *updates atop each paragraph*
*Magnetic by Nature was successfully funded, so congrats to TrippleSlash. There's still a few days left on the kickstarter if you want to get your hands on the game for $8*
An old PolyKarbon forum friend of mine ~MissWiggle
and the dev team she's a part of is bringing their XBLA game "Magnetic By Nature" to PC, Mac and Linux with much expanded features. Go check it out, and spread the word if you want.

*Jon is working on getting a first mini produced. Once something tangible is on the table for you to look at a kickstarter campaign should launch shortly after. Concept work is well on it's way and some sculpting for many other designs already, just the printing and casting itself is the pricey part we need help with.*
In the coming months Jon Paulson will be launching a kickstarter for his "Mecha Front" tabletop miniatures game. I've been working with him to design all the mech minis (yep, a whole game of shimmy mechs), they'll be in N-scale. So if you're interested in such minis you might want to start saving up
*Please go and vote on the Rangers art book poll here [link]
. So far the response is good but the vote count is only a tiny fraction of my active watcher count, even "not buying" votes help me greatly. The current "would buy" votes approximate to a 60 page PDF, but I'd like to aim for 100+ pages in printed form.*
I thought I'd give an update on my own Rangers project. I'm still in a stage of collaborating with a writer to assemble some background documents on the setting, these will be needed as a foundation for any book projects. That said, when all that prep work is finished I want to start things off with an art and universe visualization type book. Similar to the artwork and descriptions I post on DA, but with much more variety in subjects along with more specific and unified details, and the main part, a ton of artwork.
I'm still not quite sure the way I will deliver it, but in some form or another I will run a Kickstarter campaign to fund the books production.
What do you guys think? I know I tease this a lot, about once a year, but would you back me? (vote in this poll [link]
If so, what kind of backer options / rewards / stretch goals do you think would be cool for me to offer?
And as always in my seldom posted journals, feel free to ask me anything and I'll do my best to answer
