While working as a Google-drudge for The Wife - she is moving on from Steampunk and now wants to explore Dieselpunk - I discovered a new genre 'Atompunk', and found a nice blog, the Dark Roasted Blend. It could be about coffee, but it's not. According to its strap-line, it's focused on 'weird and wonderful things', but what appeals to me is it's strong streak of retrofuturism. From there, we get to Dreams of Space, 'non-fiction children's books about space flight from 1945-75'.
I'm off for a good browse...
A little while ago, I complained that the UK distributor of Hydra Miniatures had run out of their 28mm Robot Legion figures.
This week I was pleased when a parcel arrived (what over on the British Medals Forum is termed 'the Jiffy Bag Dance') and out popped 'Opito'. Now I want to find someone who does the guys in the top photo!
