This.

I have a 950 point list of late war British Infantry that, along with the Bolt Action rulebook, has cost me less than 90. That it cost so little is bloody ace. Combine this with the cost of playing X Wing, my outlay over the past few months has been minimal compared to when I was heavily into 40k.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

Exactly.
I've spent what, 25 on the lambda shuttle since my initial purchase a good few months ago and even with my limited X-Wing collection I still haven't reached the limit of playability.

As I gradually clear out my 40k stuff - the Pike & Shotte stuff has gone - I'll be investing in BA and some more DW stuff
I see good times ahead for my gaming circle!

After reading the info from warlord games I must admit I'm very interested in getting amongst a bit of desert rat action but one thing I really like about 40k is meeting up with my friends once every few months at warhammer world for the TOS tourney (after joining the navy I rarely see my friends from the north so it's become a long anticipated weekend) does anyone know if warlord games run tournies? If they have a painting competition? If they do that would be the icing on the cake

There's tournaments across the country that they back officially, but they have nothing like Warhammer World or ToS. The best part is that Allessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley have been known to attend some of these torunaments.

I must admit i'm a little tempted,
I would need a bigger house though so not an immediate buy.............

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Taking the plunge. 5500pts of ultramarines fully painted now on eBay. Waffen SS 1000pt army deal and rulebook for bolt action and a French starter army for black powder from warlord ordered. All the guys I know who play or have played 40k love bolt action so I reckon I'll like it from what I've seen.

I'm sure you will, especially if you enjoyed 5th Ed.

Can someone explain Bolt Action to me? Or point me toward a good write up?

Bolt Action is somewhat similar to 5th Ed 40k, except for two big differences. The pinning mechanic and the turn system. If a unit gets hit it sufferes a pin. That pin affects their ability to do anything. The pins are minis modifiers if they try and shoot, and They must roll a morale check every turn to carry out an order, with a modifier of minus however many pins the unit has. This means that you can effectively take a unit out of the game without killing it if you get enough pins on it. It doesn't sound like much, but it has massive in game effects.

It also doesn't follow the traditional you go-I go system. Every unit has an order dice. Both players put their dice in a bag, and randomly draw one. Whichever players dice is drawn gets to activate a unit. This makes the game a lot more tactical, and a game can be won or lost on a single draw of the dice.
