I'll assume like a previous topic to this your refering to GW and labeling it as a hobby, the same mistake made by those already

I enjoy BFG, Warmaster, Necromunda, Mordheim and Inquisitor, so the games GW have not yet ruined simply by ignoring them and the people who play them, for once there uncaring ignorant attitude pays off...shame the prices don't, but thankfully you can get models for all these rule sets from different companies
hows the view from up your own arse? short, dark and brown?

Ive started to update this project loge again, you should all check it out. it has some stupid things on it, and some fun things on it haha

if you don't want comments made by people who no longer enjoy 40k, then discuss it in private over MSN or in person, otherwise shut the hell up and expect and live with people having opinions you don't like

my opinion to me is as valid as anyon elses to them, but you don't see me going through here telling people giving 8+ to shut up and go away as they love the hobby too much to make a fair unbiased opinion

idiotic inbred comments like this of course do not help someone like me give a positive opinion on anything GW does, you get negative dickwad comments over informing people of aspects of GW you enjoy, so whats the point of saying something positive if your just gonna get flame baited and moaned at by moronic twats who feel they have a higher sense of justice being a cock

im all for differeing oppinions, but you are just hatemongering.

nothing you say is constructive in the slightest.

'this is shit, gw are shit, 40k is shit' seems to be the majority of your posts, why would you spend the time here? accept that you dont like gw anymore and move on with your life...your like a bitter girlfriend that just got dumped and is now stalking the ex trying to sabotage their life... :/

James. I want to reach out to you. I feel what you need in essence is a bit of a cuddle and some make peace. So all this shit and previous shit aside, you have explained before that you do enjoy some aspects of GW's wargaming catalogue. As this is a forum mostly dedicated to GW products why don't you put up some of your stuff in the Modelling or Project Log area with your Mordheim or Inquisitor gear in so we can turn this twatboat around?

and how many of your replies to mine have been constructive compared to how many bait the situation into going further than it really had to?

or are we going by 1 set of rules for 1 person, another set for another?

hell in the current 40k I really like dark eldar, orks and nids, but GW ruins it with the prices, so obviously things like that won't make me happy and increase my hate for them as they price my interest away to cheaper alternative games and models

in the last 3 months I have moved house 4 times, once due to threats on my life from 4 drugged up assholes, in this period I have lost my 360, my laptop, my computer, my camera, shit loads of models (some worth allot of money to me and with allot of personel value), books, DVD's and allot more, I have wracked up debts from council, wrekin and landlords who have been getting angry at me for not being able to pay them back (resulting in the loss of more of the above)

I am no longer in a position to take pics of any models, or even to paint any models until I get back on my feet from all this, which is going to take a long long time

all this while resisting the urge to commit suicide since my depression is getting worse by the day

By automatically hate I mean hate regardless of what happens there. There is a difference between disliking one part conditionally e.g. "I dislike the over the top fluff Mat Ward (or whatever you happen to dislike) writes but there are some parts of the hobby I like" and unconditional dislike e.g. I hate the way all the armies and fluff is now and unless GW completely changes all its business practices I will never like them." Just talk about the parts you do like if you cannot say ANYTHING positive. (the case so far) The same way you don't go to painting sections to say "You suck at painting, go paint like I like it painted then try again." Constructive criticism will be welcomed. Straight criticism will be shunned.

Thank you, now i know you do actually enjoy some of GW's products which is wonderful and refreshing to hear. I agree with you that the specialist games are fantastic, each offering something unique.

I hate ALL the vehicles, I hate the Flayed Ones, I dislike the Lychguard/Praetorian models and the Deathmarks/Immortals, I dislike the characters and I have absolutely no fucking idea why they made the god awful classic Necron Lord Finecast.

Vehicles: They would be fine if they were enclosed, with no Necrons visible on them. Having Necrons drive around in vehicles is a bit weird to me, and having them physically use transports screams 'Wrong' at me - if the Monolith can bring Warriors through the portal from a location far from the battlefield, then why would they not use this technology on their transports?

Flayed Ones: The skin is terrible, and the weapons are too chunky. The long, thin flensing blades were cooler than oversized shears.

Lychguard/Praetorians - Immortals with Tomb King headresses, loincloths (Why the hell do Necrons need loincloths?) and Skaven halberds/LotR Elf shields.

Immortals/Deathmarks - Immortals don't look as good as the old ones, specifically the guns. The Deathmarks... I just don't like the idea of Necrons with snipers. You'd have thought that a sniper in the field would have to show initiative, something that Necrons are not supposed to have. And Necrons have never seemed like the stealthy kind.

Characters: Ok, the Overlord's nice. No better than the Necron Lords, but not a bad piece at all. Trazyn? Way too static. Imotekh looks a bit strange, with one really big hand and one normal-sized one. Oh, and he looks like Sidorak from Bionicle. The Cryptek is in a weird pose - not nearly imperious enough for a proud, arrogant Necron.
