Let me clarify some points:
The child is NOT my nephew. I currently have an email into the uncle to try to get some more information.
The Medusa is mine, I posted it to point out that if done correctly, a paper or mixed media kit can be as good as a plastic kit.
Third, I agree that this is coming second (or third) hand, which is why I am seeking information. The problem is, as I have previously stated, there ARE people like this GM who feel the need to be superior, right, or whatever. We (as in all of us who game) need to be on the lookout for these types of individuals and derail them before something like this happens. It does no one any good. Not the reputation of the GW, the shop, or our fellow gamers. Just food for thought.
