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
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.
