40 year old virgin plays warhammer!

I didn't see the movie, but was sent a link to a review, when my friend read this:

"Among his prize possessions are action figures, including of the Six Million Dollar Man (and the Six Million Dollar Man's boss) and miniature toy soldiers he meticulously paints under a magnifying glass, imparting to them a richness of detail absent from his own life."

I noticed that in the ad as well. Cracked my up. A friend who saw the film gave it glowing reviews, as did most critics.

I saw it and almost posted somethign about it, but couldn't decide if it belonged in the OT forum or not, then ADD kicked in and I forgot all about it.

The movie was awesome, amazingly funny and actually a good movie aside from that also.

Indeed, the main character does paint miniatures, but I don't think they're fantasy, or even GW, plus he's not that great at it. No dry brushing, no inking, very little shading or highlighting. Frankly I wasn't impressed... :b

Edit: I thought about it some more, and it's actually great that painting minis was in the movie, because now whenever we try to explain our hobby, we can just say "It's the same hobby that the 40 year old virgin had" and they'll immedietely understand...

If you look closely during one of the painting scenes he's got a finished Rider of Rohan in one of those model clamps right in front of him.

I also recommend the movie - really funny.

Actually, the movie is a film about the life of a club member who paints lots and lots of Rohan horsemen. Even with a wife, the dude STILL doesn't get laid! I won't mention who it is.

Hehe, when this information came up on Dakka a few days ago, a flurry of Dakka boys immediately piled on the thread with posts listing all the evidence that they weren't virgins.

Can you say "insecure?"

Makes me want to see the movie.
