You think giving your wife a battle sister sqd is a good idea....(Guilty)

You stay up till 1 am, just to get that shading finished on one of your models.....(Guilty)

You hoard just about everything plastic/metallic/wire/etc., cause you could just possibly use it in your next Konversion.....(Guilty)

You carry you codex's around even when your not playing, just to have something to read. While waiting for the misses/family/doctor/etc.....(Guilty)

You plan your month around your fortnightly gaming nights.....(Guilty)

Oh,.... I do have a life........Its just I refuse to except it as reality. LOL

...you have dreams about it.

...You're live on a forum about it.

Now it works (thought it would make more sense for you, my friend

~Thal


Surrounded by your glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for you Jesus, or in awe of you be still?
Will I stand in your presence, or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing, 'Hallelujah'? Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine...

From Dakka Dakka:
1. You injure yourself and roll a dice to see if you make a save
 2. When going out you check to see what wargear your allowed to carry
 3. You start hanging around in groups of ten friends and refuse to move further than 2" away from them
 4. Your idea of "popping down for a pint of milk" involves deepstriking through the ceiling of your local shop
 5. You give thought to arriving to work in a giant Monolith or a Land Raider and "pawning" your collegues
 6. You really want a sticker that says "My other car is a Battle Barge" in your rear window
 7. You use the word smite more often than necessary
 8. You try to convince people to do what you want, saying "It's for the greater good"
 9. You think Slanessh is misunderstood
 10. You ask your boss to get you a "Golden Throne"

and incidentally, Lots of people have parties at our LGS, they're free to the best of my knowledge and the put sandwiches out and everything

Wow PMF, thats rather creepy if I didn't know what warhammer was. :(
What is strategy without a little luck? What is firepower without a little luck. Some may say it is a miracle, but I say, with a little luck, many things will go your way

When you're out at a party, bar, club etc with all your friends and nice girls everywhere, and you still feel like you are wasting valuable modeling time.  Till you pull that is  ;).....

...You're on a forum about it.

Even after ten years, your overall input is a half finished background story...

I will add at least things work them selves out over time.
I've been on here barely over one year. What the heck are you on about?

Yet you've accumulated 3-4x the posts as I have...while I've been on here 2x as long.

I meant about the background thing, but I've misread.

And I'm crippled, it's hard to get out...
