    I remember being about 12 when Man O War first came out and having endless debates with my mates about who was going to collect which faction's ships. Never came to anything since we were all too skint to buy the main set.

    @Nexus 6 : That Tau Manta is amazing (mainly because they included all 48 passengers, tanks and war suits.) But, if I had a grand (or two) to spend on a model spaceship I'd probably buy this instead : Lego Millenium Falcon

    How does the gaming side of it actually work, is it like top trumps? but surely the richest kid beats everyone else?
    Nope, all units have a points value, and both the big models listed (Imperial Reaver 1750 Tau Manta 2500 iirc) are higher in value than a standard tournament army (1500), so you can only field them in really big battles. And then other side has his own, or loads of points for loads of anti-big-fucker units.

    Considering how long this stuff takes to paint, I really hope not! :)

    Yeah, I'm another of the lapsed Warhammer guys. Dabbled a bit in early teens but you never really appreciate it until you hit mid-late 20s at least where suddenly sitting still painting is welcome relief!

    You have a problem.

    I often get a fancy for doing some painting while sitting in front of the telly. I have a squad of Tau stored away that are unpainted but all my paints dried up a while ago.

    Depends where and what you drink. A Saturday night out on the piss can easily cost up to 100

    You're both right!

    Oh I can appreciate that, I've certainly around 100 on a nigh out on several occasions but try not to do it every week at my age (I say that and I'm only 25 ffs).

    Yeah because it is clearly going that way.

    Has anyone tried their hands at any modding at all? Had my first blast at it a few weeks back, making myself a little Skaven War Litter. Still not painted yet, but it was fun to mess about with it a bit.

    I probably mentioned it previously in this thread, but I made a Ork killer kan out of a Wall-e figure, was a lot of fun to make!

    -chop off the head
    -add spinny blade arm and guns
    -made a plastic card 'face' on the front and makeshift armour
    -misc bits glued on
    -Goblin pilot on top

    Will post a pic later if anyone cares :)

    Only very basic stuff; weapon swaps, head swaps, that kind of thing. Fine line between an awesome looking model and a shambles I reckon. Less is more.

    Sculpting is a skill I'd love to have.

    Yeah, particularly with the new plastic kits with all the spares it makes sense to just dabble a bit. mine was pretty basic - using a few of the Stormversion for the Litter then basically bastardising a cheap box of skeletons to make a plinth, then sticking a general on top. I only really used Green Stuff for some ropes and as cement. And even the ropes are a bit hit and miss...

    Bleah all you fantasy players - man up and play the laser game :-P

    Still if any of you are looking for a good place to talk more about Fantasy/40k I would point you to the Warhammer Forum. Don't know what the fantasy side is like but the 40k side is friendly and helpful.

    I've got a few pictures of my unpainted litter on Picassa, but I'll have to wait until I get back home, away from Linux, until I can find a link for them.

    The trouble with 40k is that I just don't really like any of the armies that much. Despite the fact that I actually prefer the ideas/concept/Lore for it.

    My mate had a few of the Ape Gang models from Judge Dread and actually made a Jokaero army (probably the most obscure 40k army ever).
