Gee, I hope so. I bought High Elves, Dark Elves, Wood Elves army book (does
that make me a pansy lover ?), Necromunda, blah, blah, blah with absolutely
no intention of playing them and still now have no intention to.

Yup, about those restrain, boy is it hard. This Chinese New Year, one of the
GW shop intends to lower the price by 20-30%. And boy, I have caught myself
a few times eyeing the Chaos 40k Marines and calculating the savings :(

I am not so hopeful. It is documented that only Mephiston (chief
librarian/vampire) of the Blood Angels managed to hold back the curse of the
Blood Angels. Even then, he succumbed to it from time to time :P. Any other
successful case, so that there may be hope to the rest of us ?

p.s. Boy, it does seem funny coming out and saying that one does have an
unhealthy fixation with some game system that is "ripping" one off.

Push any key. Then push the any other key.
