    This is by no means a post to brag or chest-thump about my good fortune but the new job I just started is so awesome I had to tell my TOG friends!!

    I just got hired (started working a week ago) at Fantasy Flight Games here in good ol' Minnesota. I'm the Line Coordinator for the forthcoming Mutant Chronicles Collectible Miniatures Game. This is such a dream job in every way!

    Woot!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D

    Congrats! I quite like Arkham Horror. Also hoping they do a good job with Dark Heresy (of which several TOGers are currently playing I atm).

    Hey! Hey! Hey! Congrats on the new job! I've only recently heard about the Mutant Chronicles CMG. I still have a box of unopened, unpainted minis from the old MC TTG, as wells as the RPG, so I'll probably take a look.

    I think my buddy at my FNGS will probably run some demos once it is released.

    That would be exciting. Great news. They cover such a variety of games. :)

    I do have a question. In the last few weeks we have decided we want to get the expansions for Arkham Horror (Dark Pharoah & The King in Yellow). We were able to buy Dunwich Horror, but have been told from two different large specialty game retailers that they can't get stocks of the other two in Australia until Christmas?? 6 months is an awful long time away. Are stocks really that hard to come by, or do they only do limited print runs?
    I havn't tried looking further for them yet, or started looking for places that would sell internationally. I was just shocked to be told such a long supply time.
