Now if we actually run out of oil, that may be the end of plastic models altogether.  Imagine it - a world without plastic GW minis.  Maybe in 100 years.  Maybe sooner.  Hold onto your vintage models... if you don't pass them on as heirlooms to your kids and grandkids, they may never know the joys of highly detailed, well-painted plastic models.  So light, yet so practical.

That'd funny to play against. Pogs would work to I suppose, but only for chaos armies.
Still I lay cold, my soul seeks light / my eyes are tired; my heart's last fight
Around my shell of wood and cloth / trickle sound of wound and loss.
Broken voices of tears and cry's / sorrow and love for a Nation's son's life.
Mother and Father alone in thought. / Of the bravery and pain in the battle we fought.
We move slowly we three welcomed home. / A parade of silence, hands and flags wave
Above our bodies, they gather as on, / Along this highway of heroes for two seconds of light.

Don't joke about cardboard armies.  I used to have an entire Warhammer Fantasy Army made out of cardboard.  I made it myself when I was young and poor.  My peers, somehow, allowed me to play with it.

Fortunately, my scratchbuilding skills have improved considerably over time.

And if you think about it, all the GW products (I think) are made in Britain.  So if we run out of oil, we won't be able to fly planes back and forth any longer.  And that means - no more overseas shipping!

I mean, I suppose it will be possible to still get from continent to continent, but it will be VERY expensive I would think.  This would REALLY skyrocket the prices.
