Cuteness in the Grim Dark Future of the 41st Millennium...

Hi Everyone! Kate has a been a bit too busy wrapping presents for all sorts of important people (possibly me...), so I will be filling in for Kate today. 

I don't think that Kate has ever mentioned that I am ridiculously addicted to tabletop wargaming. I love playing the games, painting the miniatures, and making miniature terrain. However, sometimes the hobby can get a little serious. Which is why I'm super happy to share this image with you: 

Apparently, a long time ago, some guy got tired of people being super serious and uptight about little toy soldiers and decided to take a Hello Kitty themed army to the National Warhammer 40k tournament in Las Vegas. He ended up winning the tournament, and the company that makes Warhammer 40k was unable to publish pictures of the winner because of the possibility of copyright issues. So, whenever I feel like this hobby is getting to be a little too serious I just type "Hello Kitty Space Marines" into the search engine and I after looking at the images I remember that hobbies are all about having fun and there's no need to get too worked up about little plastic models of futuristic warriors. 

Have a great Monday!



  1. Thanks for the fun post Fraser! I've always wondered how many of the other crafty ladies out there have warhammer playing men in their lives.

  2. Okay, that is hilarious! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Great post Fraser, Hello Kitty Space Marines are the best! ^_^

    My husband (Scott) also plays Warhammer, but he plays Imperial Guards. He is seriously good at painting those tiny little figures ... unlike me; I still haven't finished painting my Orcs >_<

    Kate, I know a lot of crafty couples in which the men play Warhammer! It seems like it is a thing. Scott also makes armour using papercraft and resin - I think it's great that we can both enjoy making things (even though they are completely different things! ^_^)

  4. Oh my gosh I love that Hello Kitty miniature! I've only painted miniatures once, at GenCon, but I soooo want to do that again!

  5. This is the Hello Kitty army I hear of!
