    I collect the old RT marines. I can tell you that guy usually doesn\'t go for much. You may get $5. The X-mas marines may fetch a fair price.

    I\'d vote for Necromunda as far as both mini lines and rules go. I like the campaign system. I also like the Foundry Street Violence line of minis.

    I personally think that is freakin\' hilarious. People take crap like that way too seriously.

    I just got home at 2 in the morning because I work at a Borders. Harry Potter pisses me off.

    The only problem I see is the usage of the word \"bitz\". It doesn\'t say anything about being a GW specific site.

    How bout Hitchhiker\'s Guide? What a boring load of happy horsecrap that ending was. That being said, the cheesy BBC version rocked. The low budget-ness just seemed to fit the Hitchhiker\'s world.

    I had dullcoat melt a bunch of paint once. I promptly switched to GW matte varnish and it hasn\'t happened since.

    My theory is that too heavy of an initial coat melts the paint. Often in the world...
