Me as well. I don't understand where people got the old treads from. The ones that looked kind of like you had to put each individual part of the tread together? Each piece moved separately from the other, giving it a more realistik tread feeling.

I got mine from # 7664 TIE Crawler. I used all but six in my IKE-3 though, so I've already run out.

Very awesome tank, Captain. I really like the guns on the sides of the treads. I can just picture that tank rotating in place as it mows down wave after wave of attacking troops.

Because nobody uses their yellow pieces, they look retarded without a uniform color scheme (like yellow and black).

I disagree. I'd say that you'd associate yellow with skin and flesh and weakness. If you gave your men a yellow uniform, they'd look naked too.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

If you will allow me to display Exhibit 2:

Displayed Left to right, Mr. Brik Nukem, Princess "Slave" Leia, 00"Topless"M9, and a random Viking. Clearly, in every instance, Yellow is used to suggest skin. Therefore, the jury must conclude that these defendants are guilty of indecent exposure.

So... the tanks are made of skin? Interesting, kind of relates to Chaos in a way... that tank better have some really sucky armor value, though.

Hmmm... a tank with skin for armor? I suppose that means that if my tank were hit it would start spraying blood all over the battlefield. However, that also means that a medik could repair my tank's armor...

Image the blood and chaos if all of my vehicles had skin over their armor...

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

That sounds like the Chaos Space Marines. They use human skin for clothing, and use flayed, but still living, loyal Space Marines as hood ornaments.

"Put Book front and center; he's our friend, we should honor him. Kayle, find that kid who's taking a dirt-nap with Baby Jesus, we need a hood ornament. Jean, try not to steal too much of their sh*t"
