    Well, if a Tomb King and Chaos Dwarf collection can do that, my collection of Dwarfs, High Elves, Lizardmen, Greenskins, Skaven and the odd Beastman should have no problem at reeling them in ;)

    Well, those won't have the same impact as the TK + CD combo, so you'll have to settle for "8's" or below. ;)

    Personality's more important than looks for me, so some girls that most men would rate as a 5 or 6 (and would likely be rated as below 10 on the Warhammer scale) would probably be rated as a 10 for me :D

    So I was 22 years old when the movie came out, I watched it with my parents. They a roughly 33 years older than me.

    My couldn't stop giggling every time someone said "He killed the younglings" because she thought it was a stupid way to say "murdered children" and didn't take anything in the movie seriously.

    At the time, I took Star Wars very seriously and was very annoyed by her. Also, I kind of view talking in the theater as a major faux passe but years later I understand the sentiment.

    I know not everyone likes Mister Plinkett, but he was right that the first 15 minutes of Revenge of the Sith was awful and kept changing the tone every 60 seconds. The tonal confusion carried over to the rest of the movie, so the audience wasn't sure what to feel during serious scenes.


    I don't know if this is the same thing. But the Marvel Cinematic Universe had lots and lots of fake outs with a character dying and then "oh wait, he's not really dead!"

    The later the first time they actually killed someone, I didn't take it seriously or feel the emotional impact.
    Quicksilver in Age of Ultron
    While everyone was mourning, I didn't take it seriously and just grinned knowingly during the sad scene. By the time I found out that I was wrong, my chance for empathetic catharsis was long gone.

    Yet I got misty eyed when a talking plant died in an episode of Thundercats, so I have the capacity to be sad at the death of a fictional character.

    The snow troopers never embarrassed themselves. That would be my choice.

    I'm going with top center as I'm pretty sure this is the most rapid fire weapon. As we know from WH even if your BS is mahrlect, multiple shots will ensure you at least get a few hits ;)

    I'm going to take the middle one, because I think that may be a picture of Luke or Han in disguise. Something about that picture just says that too me.
