    I have a large number of Space Marines that are hidden away and only ever come out when I have some 'me' time.

    No-one shall know my dirty little secret.

    I had Space Wolves painted silver and blue because I misread the colour instructions on the original plastic Mk 6 Space Marines box. And had more royal blue paint than yellow :D

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    :D

    I can't laugh too much though. I'm fucking rubbish at painting them. I envy Stickman.

    If there is so much reliance on Orks as the enemy, as it seems, then the only real option is Space Wolves, imo.

    Ragnar Blackmane as unlockable character ftw.

    I keep the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer in my car.

    ...Just in case.

    I still reckon it'll be the Blood Ravens.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Aren't the Ultramarines the current poster boys for GW?

    Wouldn't be surprised if they want to champion them for their first big console release.

    Anyone play Squad Command on the DS/PSP?
    It's a very nice little turn based strategy game. Ultramarines again though.

    The Space Wolf models that came out right at the end of my obsession with this were brilliant. Can't find them anywhere - only the Standard Bearer and Captain are still on the online store...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Has someone told N'gai Croal about this? There'll be an uproar that will make Resident Evil 5's "spear-chucker-gate" look like a PR success!

    And yeah, nerd kids these days dont kow how lucky they are - in my day we had to actually go to the shop to buy the models there and then. Then again, i didnt need a 2nd mortgage to get a squad together like you do now.

    Been hovering around the GW website recently - the internet is a blessing for the game/hobby. I love the Tau units especially now, and there is just so much good stuff around.

    If you are being critical though, you can easily see the influences of other Sci-Fi on the designs of ships and tech in general. The imperial guard ship is the drop ship from Aliens, the walkers are straight out of Star Wars.

    I have an original old style dreadnought, which is one of the finest designs ever in the game, i think.

    ah the warhammer cycle.

    Leo, there are Long Fangs, Hunters, Blood Claws, a couple of charaacters and Terminators on the webby, but a Space Wolves codex is on then way this year I think, so they are probably undergoing a re-vamp

    Ditto.
    Only my GF knows of my stash of Space Marines and Tyranids as well as my Blood Bowl set.

    I was looking for a specific model though. Came out as one of four, another one of those was the Standard Bearer they still have on their site. Space Wolf Captain was earlier, and originally had a cloak.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    My Space Marines and Orks are proudly on display, and Epic armies too. I think its a great hobby, all the more so recently as now my 10-y-o son and his mates have all got in to it, they are down at GW all day painting again today.

    In the grim darkness of the far future is a brief respite from parenting.

    I've got some of the older Space Wolves stuff too. There used to be loads.

    Think I've got Leman Russ with his two doggies tucked away somehwere. Not entirely sure what you were supposed to do with him in game though. Not that I ever actually played it...
