It sounds amusing, but a little pricey for something you can't really make much use of in the game (particularly if you've got opponents who have that "throw" style of rolling the dice as opposed to the more gentle dropping... be bad if someone chucked a dice through the TV screen.)

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

if a dice did go through the screen i'd put a dice through their face and see how they like it or i'd make em buy me a new one i'll get it insured lol

Well, if you we're going on Pimp my Ride ;> might be cool, but i'm gonna go with a "no"

if you've got $400 to drop, why not get some more stuff?!!!!!!

Better to pimp it by simply putting a crazy amount of work into modding it with all the bits you can think of, lots of Green Stuff, plasticard, and a real interesting paintjob.

Less cash and you get to field it.

There's a photo I wish I'd saved now. A woman had covered her Slaanesh Land Raider in pink fur, now that was pimp!


Heresy grows from idleness.
