hehe, I guess that'd work. Though I don't have any armor made up for it.. I know some guys though, we could totally crash imp guard style. (No one would get it though sadly.) (At least.. 90% of any movie going audience will just think we're in weird camo and crazy fanatics.)

Of course, after burning the first heretik they might stop laughing so much.

Just remember folks! Warhammer players, more disposable income then you since 1985.

I've stuck to the electronic versions of Warhammer. They are less expensive and less time consuming.

I can't count how much money I've spent on Magic: The Gathering booster packs and singles.

Are you sure that isn't just a problem of you never learned to count?

I can't count that high! What am I, some kind of counting machine?

And I'm unsure how to count to 0. Therefore I can't count how much I've spent.

I disagree. Because you can't count to zero.
Well, I suppose you could if you were counting up from, say -3.

I disagree with your...disagreement.

Zero, One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, A, B, C, D, E, F.

Then again I only count in hexadecimal...

Update: Saw the film last night, and it's as good as any movie based on Watchmen is going to get. I'd link you to a review I wrote but I'm not too sure about your rules regarding shameless self-promotion and linking.

Every post I make has self-promotion attached to the signature. Granted it is for a blog that I haven't updated in a year, and I just haven't bothered taking it off. But still.
Anyways, I wouldn't read it until after I see the movie tonight anyways. Watchmen has been one of those movies that I try to stay away from reviews and clips and whatnot.

Well, since I'm home for spring break and can download torrents (stupid school blocks em) I decided to download Watchmen. Right now I'm about a quarter of the way through, and I must say it's pretty damned good. I know I'm doing myself a disservice by reading it before seeing the movie, but I don't know when I'll see the movie, and I'd rather read it before it's spoiled for me by countless moviegoers. Pretty damned good.

Good movie, for sure. I'd imagine I'll like it more with a second viewing, which is usually what it takes me to separate the book and movie versions.
They definitely left out some some stuff I was glad of. They definitely ramped up the action, which I figured would happen, and I'm happy with. They made a few other changes most of which were good, some of which were only mildly disappointing (granted some of those changes might've just been different from how I read the book).
The music was great and did a fantastic job of matching the tone for the most part.
And the (nearly) opening montage was fantastic. Probably my favourite part of the movie, and did a fantastic job of setting the stage, and in a far quicker fashion than the book did.
