Just for a laugh phone up Games Workshop Mail order and say, dead straight ...

"Can I advance order 5 boxes of those wonderful new Greatswords please".

Leave a good long pause then say

"no wait make it 10 they can have a lung as well as a kidney". :D

OR Try this one .... (from Hastings)

Phone up and ask to order 10 of "those gold greatswords" then when he explains they are plastic just say something like "oh, sorry I must have read it wrong, I thought it said there were only 10 in the box so I assumed it was gold - never mind, I'll commission someone to sculpt them for me from raw diamonds, after all it's my favourite material for conversions".........

The mail order fellas must need some cheering up after the ear bashing they will have been getting this weekend. :D

I called up earlier and the conversation went like this:

Me: Hello
Troll: Hello, Welcome to Games Workshop *Bleep* speaking how can I help?
Me: I want to enquire about the pre order for 20 Greatswords for 24.45
Troll: 20 Greatswords?
Me: Yeah the ones on the site, like the black orcs when they were released.
Troll: You mean the 10 Great Swords plastic boxed set?
Me: No didn't see them on the site only the box at 24.45, how much are 10?
Troll: 24.45
Me: For 20?
Troll: No 10.
Me: You sure?
Troll: Yeah
Me: I'll give you 15.
Troll: Can't do that sorry they are 24.45
Me: How about 30 for 2 boxes and we call it quits?
Troll: Ermm no sorry sir I can't do that.
Me: I won't tell anyone it'll be our little secret.
Troll: Sorry...
Me: Ok what if I pre order and say it didn't come and then you could send me out a second box for 5? Making it 30 all in and we are both happy?
Troll: Sir that is illegal and stealing
Me: Well if I pay you 24.45 for them then you would be stealing from me no? Surely timeshare would be better for Games Workshop to try to ripp people off?
Troll: Ermmm... Well I understand... Let me speak to my manager... *Silence* Hello sir I still can't do it sorry. Please write in if you would like to enquire further. Thanks for your time. Goodbye

*Hangs up*

Just as I was about to turn the conversation serious...:angel:
