Yeah, I'm a little bewildered by all the smilie options. I'm not even sure if I know what all of them are supposed to mean. Arrow ?

It's a bank holiday in the UK (no work!).

So hopefully the U.S guys can handle opening the site!

Still not up though Mad

So that's the problem. I was really confused when it was already 3pm London time and nothing had happened.

Looks like it, GW's offices in the US are closed now.

This is the kind of thing that really pisses me off about GW

Part of the hobby my friend. 10 years ago the game was still expensive (a little cheaper, but not much).

Besides, you pay for the quality.

I can spend 15 bucks at the movies (ticket, popcorn and a drink) or I can spend 40 bucks on a squad that does the following...

Gives me something to build for 4-10 hours,
Gives me something to paint for 10-30 hours,
Gives me something to game with FOREVER.

When weighed up against other forms of entertainment, 40k comes out smelling like roses.

Plus the quality of the sculpts for the level of customization is second to none in the mini gaming industry.

</soapbox>

I'm such a fanboy

I speak truth

EDIT: The Americans come through!!!!

Check it out uber excitement will follow

Notice that there are actual releases for the DE, still rehashed models but it is a sign they aren't killing off the army.

That Ork Dred set will be a heavy box.

I may have to join Chad's cause with a Saim-Hann or Biel-Tan force.

Frankly, I'm a little underwhelmed after all the buildup they went through. We had already seen almost all the models they had shown, and the preview section just said that there will be big battles. On a related note, this has got to be gold for the ebay resellers. Always fans of splitting box sets, I'm sure that when you buy 9 Russ's you are getting a discount. Then they'll sell them off one by one for a profit, but still below what you could buy one for.

Yeah, only a few things were new to us.

I bet the general population was pretty pumped, having not seen all the data sheets etc.

Then again, the general population are probably on warseer etc.

What are GW doing? I need to go over there and help them run their shit.

Meh, I can get a better job... I already have a better job.

It would be cool to do a stint there though.
