FREE Thundarr the Barbarian adventure!

The exemplary Mind Wizard Sniderman has put together a FREE RPG adventure themed to his popular Thundarr the Barbarian posts. It comes complete with pre-generated characters (play as Ookla!) and is written as a convention one-shot. Just the thing for your Saturday night mutant ooze and pretzels gaming!

The module is called Across the Dimensional Divide and is written for Mutant Future rules, but we all know that just means it can be revamped for your game of choice, yes?

I see heads nodding, so let's cut to commercial.

Mad Max (stand-in) miniatures

A while back I came across these cool miniatures by Rattlehead Games that would be easy stand-ins for any Mad Max campaign you might be running. Here's a few of my favorites:

Gyrocopter with pilot...

Armored truck...

Max's Interceptor looks rad!

Some ne're do well Punks of the Apocalypse...

There's more at this direct link to the minis.

Mad Max 4 in production, sounds crazy/awesome

So you heard they're making a fourth Mad Max movie, right? Yep. With this guy as Max:
Tom Hardy wants to be friends
I'm pretty sure that the guy who played Bane has the street cred to pull off Max Rockatansky, post-apocalyptic badass.

And Charlize Theron is in it. Probably because she's in everything. But I heard she shaved her head for the role, so we definitely appreciate her dedication, don't we kids (yes, yes we do). She plays someone called "Imperator Furiosa".

New vehicles from Fury Road
Venerable geek temple io9 has a snippet about the plot which barely makes sense and that's why it's cool:
"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."
Read the full report, including the new cast. FAIR WARNING: You'll likely run into spoilers for other movies on that page since it happens to be called MORNING SPOILERS.

UPDATE: What's an imperator anyway? And should she be called "imperatrix" instead?

UPDATE 2: io9 has posted some spoilerific photos of mutants and more vehicles which I won't post here for those hoping to remain blissfilly least until the trailer hits.

UPDATE 3: Even MORE images of vehicles over at Comic Book Resources.
