well, first i'd advise you to make a thread in the Space Marine Section (or where ever it belongs) and give it a name. then take pictures of your models (first you should probably make photo bucket account). After you do that, put the pics of your models on your photo bucket, then mouse over the picture, and go down to Direct Link. then copy it, come here, click the Insert Image icon when making the post, paste, and then you should be ready to go.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Well, how I handle kids laughing at the 'nerd' (who, not being stereotypical, are all idiots) I just insult them with big words till they get a headache. I am not kidding kids at my school are that dumb. Also I embrace the nerdiness. I talk about 40k with my best friend, I openly show what I'm reading (often while the teacher is talking ) and take the abuse in stride. I just bear through it and wait till, like now, I don't get ridiculed for who I am. Besides, I'm also one of the smartest kids in school, so except maybe in gym I beat all the 'cool' kids in class. Heck, I even scored 70th percentile on the SAT in seventh grade, all those jocks had to show for their hobbies were pencil-thin bodies and low IQ's.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “The current system of servitude is barbaric and inadequate for today's generation. We appeal to the leaders of both the Imperium and the Coalition of Hateful Assholes and Organised Sin to seek to change this for the betterment of all its citizens”

Lorgar: “Guess there was one plot thread we forgot to erase ...” Mortarion nods in agreement, while Ahriman looks on suspiciously.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “We feel trapped, we feel oppressed. And we urge our governments to release us from these metal boxes-”

Lorgar: “Oh shi-”

It is actualy amazing how many people just accept that you play with toy soldiers and go 'oh well' then shut up about it. At least where I am thats what it is like.

Go on just click the little guy you know you want to

Call me lol. Seriously people are going to say what they want and honestly, maybe cuz I'm a little older and more mature, the best way to do it is to just laugh it off make a little joke and finish your game and have a little fun in the process. I get made fun of at work for reading army books and I'm 6'6" 250 pounds boxed for 6 years and I bounce at a bar while reading these books (I'm told it looks pretty funny when I'm painting these little models). What am I gonna do beat the crap out of everyone that makes fun of me or go to their level and return fire of words. You'd be surprised how many people want to know about it when you throw a little joke back and take it with a grain of salt.

something you must understand

they are toys

basicly everything is a toy, a car, a chainsaw etc.

I liked Blood Angels before they were cool
