Very nice. I like the Imperial Guard banner

He's particularly happy with that.
He's not so happy that he's going to miss this years games day as he's been let down by a friend.  :evil:
I could fill this forum with the amount of figures he has in his room  :lol:

I thought about getting into this when I was about 10, but we were poor then and I didn't fancy spending £5.99 (1995 £5.99!) on about 5 monsters, it'd take forever to build an army that way. Also I was into Hornby at the time and a wagon was about that price.
I had a look at the new starter kit with the marines who have been possessed by demons in it, and a limited edition character. But this "look" was in Japan, where the set costs over £100 and I didn't fancy carting a huge box of stuff halfway around the world to the country where it was made in the first place!
Oh well, maybe I'll get that set over here and paint them. Not sure I'm that interested in building a big army or actually playing the game though, no time for comics or Airfix, that way!

The new stuff is expensive, true, but you can get some great deals on ebay, Mike, for lots of `used` figures... :idea:

I'm currently building a 40k Tyranid army. Woe to me and my wallet! :orc:

I remember the old days when you could buy a box of 30 multipose plastic marines, a box of 3 Rhinos or 2 land raiders for a tenner each (and I actually prefered the look of the original Rhino), horrified at how much the figures costs now, never mind the vehicles! if it were not for the prices, I would still collect them. Then again, my marines had the view that if other chapters wanted to stroll around the battlefield in bright colours then good luck to them, they would use camouflage as much as possible! The Burning Hearts never liked the idea of being used for target practise!! (also it meant you could paint each squad in a different scheme with some really unusual colours )

The other good thing about when the models were much cheaper was you could afford to build some interesting conversions, my JagdRhino, SturmRhino and Barrage Rhino came as nasty surprises to people at the Beckenham store!

I see these figures in several shops around town, and I have to admit, I find them calling to me, especially the Bretonnians; I can see them being painted like some of the armies in "A Song of Ice and Fire," Starks, Baratheons, Lannisters (boo), and so on.
