Thank you kindly for the input. I do like really sinking my teeth into a good project. A "right out of the box" slaughter machine really isn't that much fun. It's all the tricks and tips you find while chiseling away on "the perfect build." I was almost always a pretty straightforward Cruiser guy, being that they are the most flexible, but have been getting more out of my "comfort zone" for more adventurous projects and diversification of play styles. So again, thanks for your tips. Happy gaming!
