    S-M does give you a large variety of colours and paint schemes to try out though

    I think I'll decide when I'm in the store, if i look at the models in the shop it should be a lot easier to pick one out, whether i go 40000 or not will depend on what my friends do as i don't want to end up with a load of stuff i can't use cause everyone i know is on a different game

    My advice is that you ignore collecting. Things cost expensive fast, and at the end of the day, you will sell everything eventually anyway. Personal experience at least. Better spend money on rigs. :D

    Games Workshop in Glasgow on Union Street is all warhammer and similar little models ect, no anime or computer games. There is a shop called Geforce but its kinda high priced, i get most of my games from the internet; shop to, amazon ect.

    There's another thing its computer games not vidya gaems!

    When i was in high school i knew a guy who collected warhammer and had a massive lord of the rings helms deep model. Not that i was really mates with him or anything more an acquaintance.

    No, the anime and games shop is a different place from the warhammar place

    @ fourstaff, I'm not collecting them, i just like painting them and playing the games with them, and as much !s I would like to spend money on my rig there's nothing I want to spend money on at the moment

    TBH this dude i knew made it hard on himself for various reasons like saying he was allergic to alcohol and said he was part of some mosh crew and did this sign with his hands lol (he obviously want part of any group or crew). I knew he went to college to do sound engineering but apparently he is or was a sound engineer on some disney cruise thing lol which is funny because he became a big metal head near the end of high school so its funny to see that he ended up doing that. One of my mates has him added on facebook but i wouldn't add him.

    Im not a warhammer fan at all.

    Disliking or hating someone is cool. if the guys an asshole, fine! hes an asshole. but if you hate on him because he likes a genre of music that you dont like then its no worse then racism.

    Its just childish and immature just like the 'Imma pc & Imma Mac' arguments

    I kid, I kid :)

    But discrimination will always be there, it can never be stomped, only reduced.

    Time for me to go ape shit on this user for declaring something real when its not.
    Bidded on a pair of beats tour earphone,£51 i was pretty happy,because the guy say they were authentic because of serial number...But soon as i got it today it was obvious its fake just by the box itself.
    But some people say box don't matter,so i dug deeper and the packaging is clearly fake too.
    Now that i msg the user his going get a lot of heat from me.
    He/she sold lots of beats so i assume they were legit,but my am i wrong.
    Never again am i going buy those products off ebay again now.
    Lesson to be learnt for myself and i am going get myself some serious earphones when i get my money back.

    :shadedshu You should have consulted Head-fi.org first before bidding on any ear gear. Quite a few of the earphones should not be bought because of the prevalence of fakes, Sennheiser CX300, Monster stuff, IE8, etc.

    Serious headphones, so when you get your money back, your not going to get beats are you. :wtf: (just to clarifiy, i've got nothing against people who buy beats, it's just a personal dislike of the brand because they manage to get people to pay twice as much for them compared to other headphones of a simalar quality)

    if you are going to get other headphones, try this link --> http://www.whathifi.com/reviews/accessories/headphones I've only bought 2 pairs of their reccomendations, but so far i've found they get it pretty much spot on, in terms of what they say

    Annoyed. Should have been recieving my new SSD today but bloody parcelforce forgot to load it on the van!! It should now be coming tomorrow. It was a next day delivery through ebuyer. Should I complain to ebuyer as well as Parcelforce? If so, what's the best method on ebuyer to rant and rave?

    All this buying malarkey. I'm so tempted to buy the 8GB Mushkin RAM on Aria but it's not actually £39.99 fuckers bung an extra £7 standard postage on it.

    :(

    I hate Aria sometimes.

    looks like we're all having problems with shops lately, i think the cure would be to stop buying stuff online... It's always a delivery problem or something that could of been spotted eaily if you'd bought it in person

    Just to get free delivery? It says something like 50 posts or 20 posts in the last week or something like that. Something any TPU'er can do in a day or less.

    I'll sign up anyway and do the whole helping thang. I used to be active on the Novatech forums but I lost interest. However, I did win a i7 870 in a Intel compo they held. However I sold it as I needed the money to go on a flat. Kinda wish I kept it.

    :(
