Probably a good starting point. What armies does everyone collect?
If anyone remembers me from way back when I used to post in the 40k thread I still collect Necrons, Space Wolves, Tyranids and Imperial Guard.

Roit, proper update. Unless I get bored, or tired, or both...probably both. Ok, so I have moved out. I'm house sharing with a girl called Kerry, she is my landlady. I'm living in a town called Sandycroft, in Flintshire, North Wales. My house is quite literally a five minute walk from the - quite frankly huge - Airbus A380 wing factory (which itself is situated inside Hawarden Airport) I can see it above the houses opposite.
My apprenticeship with Airbus started last Monday. We had an induction in the East factory, which is on the other side of the airport, in a town called Broughton. We got a tour of the factories where they make the wings for the A320, A330, A340 and soon, the A350. The day was actually quite boring, because 80% of it was just presentations and signing paperwork such as my contract to Airbus, and the Official Secrets Act.
On the Tuesday I had my induction to Deeside college, which is where I will spend the first year of my apprenticeship. This induction was much the same as Mondays, only without the factory tour. Duh. But the college does have it's own hangar, with two Jet Provosts, a twin-engined Cessna, and a working A320 wing for us to work on.
So basically, that's all there is to say really. I'm still working in Tesco, on a Sunday, to make up some extra rent money. Of course I have had to have a transfer to the nearby Broughton store, since Towcester is now a 3+hour drive away.
Oh, and I'm getting myself a moped. Not out of choice - they sound like a fecking hairdryer - but out of necessity, as my best way of getting to college. My CBT is in four weeks time. I will work up to something bigger, I just urgently need a mode of transport, and a moped is the quickest way to do it.

I'm moving out on Saturday, to start my apprenticeship (internship for all you non-UKers) with Airbus UK. I'm training to be an aircraft fitter and will eventually be working on the A380. I'm sharing a house with a landlady in a town called Hawarden, which is in Flintshire, North Wales. This is probably my last entry from Towcester, since I am packing my computer this afternoon. So, tata for now, and I'll see you in Wales!

The river Tove has burst it's banks and the A5 now has a new ford. Seriously. And the Silverstone Brook which is about 100metres from my back garden is looking dangerously swollen too. I need sandbags!
In other news, we got the last Harry Potter book delivered at Tesco yesterday. So I inevitably had a sneaky read in the lockup. Just the last few pages, so I can spoil it for a few people. But it's such a boring ending I don't see the point lol. If anyone wants to know before it comes out tomorrow, I'll gladly tell you what I know. I didn't get a thorough read but I can help you decide if it's worth reading or not.
