River Trolls – toy of the week

Games Workshop is releasing a new set of 3 plastic River Trolls for Warhammer. This is why I love this crazy company.

It’s puking. A puking river troll. How good is that?

I’ve never bought any Games Workshop trolls because I always thought they looked like a taller Keith Richards without hair. But these? How can you not love that foul, puking face?

What does 1/72 scale river troll puke look like on a sprue? I’m glad you asked.

I feel strangely compelled to somehow acquire several of these vomit bitz to assemble a mighty puke fountain as a terrain piece.

Also notice the creature’s treasure trail. H. O. T. Hot.

      the best website ever if ur blind i mean realy its so stuped kids dont want this they want real toys

    2. Four suggestions:- Advertising ntkeorws. A been-there-done-that person who could talk to advertising ntkeorws that harness the long tail to give the people who are/thinking about launching a community a path to monetizing it. There are a lot of solid ntkeorws like BackBeat Media, and a lot of bullshit artists. Maybe there’s an analyst-grade person out there who can break this down for people/point them in the right directions.- Facebook marketing. Alec Saunders gave a great talk at BarCamp Ottawa a few weeks back on what he’s learned about FB after he swung iotum’s VOIP tech over to that marketplace as a FB app. Bet he’s learning more right now.- Social media’s role (or rather, sad lack thereof) in government. I did an interview for a government CIO magazine recently and was shocked to learn that the Government of Canada banned Facebook from civil servant desktops. So cut off the people who have to service us with information from one of the biggest information phenomena on the planet HAHAHA!!! Like the equally idiotic debate the Feds had in the early-90s about banning the Web/surfing. People under 25 commonly send me messages not through IM or email but through Facebook. My son went on his first date via FB contact. So we keep government workers in the dark about the primary mode of communication for 15-25 year-old Canadians? And of course there’s the wicked culture clash of hierarchical/command-and-control thinking in government that is antithetical to social networking styles of managing/participating. The Feds are in a HUGE crisis with half of their workers set to retire in the next 10 years. And they’re going to attract ANYONE to their tired ranks (remember there’s an overall labour shortage looming out there as the boomers mercifully die off or just get out the damn way finally) by banning/staying ignorant about the power of wikis/blogs/social ntkeorws? HAHAHA!!!- Snag John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco, to give his social networking elevator pitch (which is also a of course a clever thought leadership overlay to selling a lot of Cisco gear). He and his management team decided to embrace social networking/anti-command-and-control a few years ago, and he speaks very well to how and why it worked, up to and including Cisco’s 9-figure market cap vs. his main competitors’ market caps wallowing in the low 8 figures. We produced a podcast of Chambers doing his thing and you can follow the bloggy path to that .
