Roughnecks is an excellent show. Hear hear.
One element of Starship Troopers (the movie) which I like to point out is
that there was an attempt to do the power armor in the film. But the
technology was not there yet to make it really look good on the screen.
The bugs were one thing, but the armor just didn't work. Hence we got the
Mobile Infantry as we saw in the movie and the Colonial Space Marine
archetype grew in new and interesting ways.
This animated movie looks like something right up my alley. It also lends
creedence to the theory that Games Workshop is leaving piles of money on
the table by not making a CGI Space Marines movie. That, or Eisenhorn
(waves to Van).
