Gw generally treat us aussies like shit so non gw is generally smiled upon where i am. Our local shop stocks the wargames factory troopers for guard players to use. My armies are all ok despite the large numbers of non gw models. All I do is make sure the bases are right and the weapons and wargear are identifiable. The only ones I have not used yet are my medusas because they are straight at43 models. I have yet to repaint or convert them.

Aussies can apparently just get fucked.

I asked if I could use one of my Scibor minatures with heavy converting for my BA. Only using the wings and head. Nope. Can't even use the base.

GW really fucking piss me off sometimes.

and what difference would it make?, GW is still a shithole to play in, I'd rather play at home, at an FLGS or at a club, I don't know why anyone would wanna play in an actual GW, considering how eager you are to leave just in case you end up with a tactical squad shoved up your back passage from the staff

It doesn't mean anything to you, just the same as this thread means nothing to you, because I was asking about my circumstances where my local GW is ran by one guy but has painting tables and gaming tables.

I don't really give a flying fuck what you think or what difference it would make to you to be honest.

Your tone and desperate need to validate your existence by trying to annoy members by being as confrontational as possible is quickly wearing thin and I am getting tired of your attitude.

Lets calm down hey lads. Vash, I've personally argued with this guy before. Just let it go.

Generalizing really isn`t fair. Granted I`ve been to a gw like this one, but I`ve also been to two more that were just as friendly as any flgs.

Their policies may suck, but it also depends on the store clerks themselves, most of whom are decent people who work there out of love for the hobby (and they have to love it considering what they get paid).

It is wrong and ignorant to judge an entire group based on a few individuals, something that any member of a niche group like wargamers should know.


On topic so as not to incur Vash`s wrath, they generally seem okay with nondistinct bitz taken from other races, so long as these are not the focus of the model. Resin wings from another game system were used on another customer`s hive tyrant and this was fine because they did not form the basis of the model.

Similarly, I`ve seen wwII weapons used on IG units, this was also fine. I`ve seen arachnid parts used on nids, also fine.

It depends on how hardass the store staff are. If you`re on good terms with them, most will be reasonable enough.

It's not a major problem, I may not use them at all and could try to convert them, they would just look better probably as I'm not the best converter, but I'll probably stick the shoulder pad from the white lion chariot on a normal shoulder pad and it will give roughly the same idea, except it'll look more like a head attached to a pad rather than something sculpted into the pad.

Anyway I'll ask him first I guess just to make sure.

I was pointing out a false generalization. Like those you just said. Plenty of games workshop managers are not A-holes. Sure they will suggest you buy things, their livelyhood depends on it, any shop owner ANYWHERE will want you to buy things if you stay there for a while. If anything GW is especially tolerant since you could stay there all day painting or playing without buying things and they won't kick you out.

In other words, have fun at your indie hobby store and I'll have fun at my GW. There is no need to change the arangement or argue about something that is entirely opinion and/or different respective GWs.
