Howdy chaps

Postby Imperial nut » Mon Oct 07, 2013 12:43 am

It's been about a year (I think!) since I sold off the army and stopped collecting, but I check in every now and then and look at latest AQ and search the showcase for armies that may excite the bug .

But how the hell is everyone and anything unusual about Sw since I've been away .
I haven't checked the for sale site and even walked past a DSD in a box of figures the other day a car boot sale, I looked back , thought "beater" and kept walking.

It's strange I miss the banter on here and the excitement of the hunt for stuff , but I haven't even noticed the collection is gone.
But I do miss opening postage bags and boxes full of styro peanys

Hey Steve.

Great to see you back dude, not much has changed here. Lot's of new members but the same old shit talking, maybe you should send yourself a box full of packing peanuts every now an then just to get a fix!

Funny how the collecting bug comes and goes, I've been on the fringe of selling up at least a dozen times in the past year alone. Been getting an itch to get an old Motorbike or car and restore it recently and all that SW stuff sitting there could fund it. It's hard to let it all go knowing how much effort and fun went into finding it all.

Stick around mate just cos you've stopped collecting doesn't mean you can't talk shit! :lol:

Steve! How's it going? So not back buying then? ...Yet. :wink:
Good to see you back here. I've still got my army. Many of them from your collection i believe. They're not going anywhere any time soon either.

:lol: I love that lots of you getting banned from RS came up first before the discovery of 2 VCJ carded . Classic.

Wear it like a badge of pride folks.
I'm glad my collection still lives on the shelves of Pete and Iain , I've been busy mountain biking and skateboarding .

Yeah I will pop in more frequently to slag off things and generally dribble. But I'm not buying . Seriously
