    You speak the truth.

    All bow before my unstoppable hatred of SCE!

    I don’t see how I can bow before hatred but I commend your resistance to the temptations of starting AoS. I may be lured by it myself, but at least it’s Fyreslayers not Stormcast.

    If I do start Fyreslayers and I am ever able to trash a Stormcast army I’ll put a picture up for you so you can see how the mighty forces of Grimnir have trampled all over the Sigmarines! :oldman:

    That's my secret... I personally don't find AoS tempting at all (not even in the slightest).

    I think you are already on your way to travelling down that rabbit hole. Good luck.

    That is a marked improvement.

    If you master the game, convince your opponent to play you in a decapitation match. A decapitation match is one where the winner of the game gets to physically cut off and keep the head of the other player's general model. Capture a SCE head!

    Thanks - it’ll be an interesting change certainly, but by no means will I ally myself with the foul Sylvaneth or ludicrous Stormcast. You can be assured of that.

    An interesting idea, but only if I master the game. I’m not willing to risk the well-painted and washed head of my Runefather for a mere bet, but if I do master the game and win a decapitation match against an SCE player, I’ll stick it on top of my Battlesmith’s standard for all to see! I’ve already stuck a spare Chaos Marauder head onto the banner of my unit of 10 Thunderers after they defeated a unit of 20 Marauders in one turn of melee without losing a single casualty!

    I just rewatched The Last Jedi, and I have to say:
    I still don't hate it. Sure there are some bold decisions and some things that I consider a bit poorly executed, but there was also some really good stuff in there.
    Best movie ever? No. Not by a long shot. But FAR away from being a bad one.
    People who say it is bad apparently don't know how a really bad movie looks like.

    I more or less agree with everything in this post, having rewatched it myself a little while back having recently got the DVD.

    I think it was a vast improvement over the cliche-fest that was Episode VII due to the new direction Johnson took it in and also for essentially killing off much of the cliche stuff that Abrams was trying to insert into Star Wars Canon. In one of the behind the scenes videos I saw one of the things they said was ‘Johnson is a creative man’ and I’m inclined to agree with it. Even the moment where Leia survives in space is creative. Perhaps a little too creative, but creative and new nonetheless,even if it borders on the edge of reality. Ok there were some things included to appeal to the OT fans, probably because Disney said that if he didn’t include things to appeal to the OT fans he would be thrown off the project, but rather than treading the same old line like Abrams did in VII, Johnson gave these things vastly different outcomes. The walker battle, for instance, became a whitewash victory for the villains this time, without a single walker being destroyed. There were so few heroes left that they could all fit on the Milennium Falcon. Compare this to the Battle of Hoth, where the Rebels were somehow able to destroy some of the supposedly indestructible AT-ATs with nothing more than towlines, and the villains are somehow stupid enough to let the Rebel transports pass through their fleet without firing at them, perhaps because they were ‘too close’ as the lore says.

    Then comes the issue of Luke. Many Luke fans are angry because it didn’t show Luke beasting everyone with his green Lightsaber, but I think it was done pretty well myself. Instead of being a repeat of Yoda and being an exile who immediately decides to teach the protagonist how to be a Jedi, Luke puts his full ‘Victor Meldrew’ impression on. He’s grumpy, he tells Rey to clear off his island several times, and tosses the legendary Skywalker Lightsaber over his shoulder as if it were a meaningless stone. It really took his character in a new direction, and I really liked it. The scene where Kylo Ren attacks him only to find he’s a mental hologram is probably the most cleverly done scene in the film, because it still shows how incredibly powerful Luke is - nobody in the saga thus far has been able to exhibit this power by conjuring a hologram right next to them, let alone on a planet thousands of miles away from their own - but in a different way to him simply charging in with Lightsaber in hand.

    While I also agree it wasn’t the best in the whole saga, mainly due to Leia surviving in space and Poe destroying all the anti aircraft guns on the dreadnought by himself, it is still a very good film and whips the Force Awakens’ backside in my view.

    Little did he know that he was the next to go... and so unceremoniously at that.
