Anime North 2018

We just confirmed for Anime North 2018, which is fast approaching and we’ll be there at the Palladium Books®  booth with our latest products.


Palladium Books Open House 2018

As some of you may know I am also a Freelance Writer for Palladium Books® and have been invited to attend the unique fan experience of the Palladium Open House, a gaming convention at the company’s warehouse where people get a chance to not only talk to the creators of Palladium products, but get a chance to game and enjoy each others company for the entire weekend!

Now its been a while since the last open house, in fact the whole set up was becoming too much of a challenge to do annually and was officially cancelled, but thanks to Scott Gibbons the event has been resurrected for another year and hopefully for many more to come!

See you all in April!


Anime North 2017 – Report

What an exciting weekend visiting with old friends and making some new ones. There was lots to see and do, but here are some of the highlights of the weekend for us.

First off we, the gang from Palladium Books® was swamped this year and could not make it up to Canada and requested that I as a Freelancer run their booth. I graciously accepted and as usual had a great time talking to people, selling Palladium products as well as my own Wildcat Engineering products.

Like Ottawa, Toronto was seeing some pretty bad flooding and lots of rain. The Don Valley River was very high and almost up onto the Don Valley Parkway in some places. We were treated however to a misty view of the CN Tower and Skydome.

As usual there were lots of Cosplayers, Anime robot models and of course gamers, something we saw a lot of while running the Palladium Books booth, including a fellow with a fully functional Veritech Fighter from Robotech!

We also got a chance to meet the Swedish Chief and were then treated to a special dinner with other artists and guest of Anime North where they gave us an amazing show (cooking our food) with a flaming volcano of onion rings!


Anime North 2017

We had such a great time last year at Anime North that we are going back for more!

Though the boys at Palladium Books® won’t be able to make it they have asked me to hold the fort down and represent Palladium Books®. So I’ll be at my table peddling Wildcat Engineering Solutions as well as a large selection of Palladium Book® products. So mark you calendars and grab your tickets and we’ll see you in Toronto May 26th-28th!

ARDEC’s First 3D Printed Ammo and Grenade Launcer

So if citizens of the USA are 3D printing their own weapons, its about time the army shows that they can to. The R.A.M.B.O. (Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistic Ordnance) is their first ever 3D printed ammo and weapon system. Key components are 3D printed out of metal and machined in post production. The remainder of the weapon is 3D printed in plastic. The same goes for each of the grenade rounds! Click here to find out more!
