Really GW shop will mess with you if you have a modified space marine ? Well then just tell them to suck it and leave. You bought the god damn space marines no one can tell you what not to do with them.
What if you tell them you green stuffed it all ? What they will do? Scrap the paint away to check if its green or not?
Mate I think that's absurd , go ahead and buy all those custom marine parts and enjoy your beautiful and unique models.

I believe he meant using GW knockoff models at a GW shop, they will give you crap for that but that's nothing new.

Edit: also, the buzz all over warseer is that there will be 2 of each weapon in the box.

The GW a town over did exactly this to me, two Kromlech axes (and subsequently due to lack of effective kit, a sad Death Company) were not allowed to see the tabletop despite 99.9% of my army being composed of GW product. I literally asked him "are you kidding" because I honestly thought he was, and the response was stern enough that I had to laugh and leave. Fortunately, Toronto is essentially right up the street and there are -tons- of LGSs to use as alternates. I could see this being an issue for some areas.

I'm really digging that the Assault squad is coming with bits of rubble for the bases (very sad they're now $49). Very cool for us who are exceptionally lazy in that regard, and seemingly easy for them to include in sprues as extra bits. Emperor knows, I have enough bolter/pistol arms to last me through the 13th Black Crusade. Also I spy every close combat weapon upgrade for the sergeant in the sprue. This makes a happy camper!

If the Devastator squad box is dropping to no doubles of the weapons and not dropping significantly in price I'll likely be bombing out to pick up a couple boxes from various LGSs in the neighbourhood before they disappear/cost way too much online. I think they look really cool with the reinforced armour, and that shooting missile is bad-ass in the extreme, but I don't know I need legs while I can guarantee I need heavy weapons.

Look at me with my 'need'. Like there's no option for me to not collect this army

Just noticed the battleforces in the picture...lamezilla. Give me a Tactical, DC, Assault, and Rhino box every day of the week over a Tactical squad, Dreadnought, and Captain.

EDIT: Just noticed the wording on the 1st Company bundle in the pre-release section:

Quote:
This bundle gives you everything necessary to field the 1st Company Task Force formation from Codex: Space Marines
I wonder how many Formations the new SM codex will have?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Just to clarify modified marines - I have used special forces heads from mad robot on a set of scouts and when I set them on the board the manager lifted them and looked at them with a look of displeasure - I have used heavy weapons from Anvil Products to modify figures but have not taken them into my local GW shop. I have also used helmeted heads with plumes from Anvil (prior to the ones now available on the ultramarine upgrade sprue) and other close combat weapons. I have a set of 5 snipers from anvil which I bought just to paint up and have in my collection. I was also thinking of getting some Kromlech legionaries were you can get bionic legs and bike legs?
Has anyone else used other manufactures products either to use in GW shops or just to have for their own collections?

GW gives managers a lot of leeway in that regard. If you have a 100% not-GW model, then they won't have it, but I've seen everything from 'conversions need to be recognizably Warhammer with some GW bits' to 'you must have 100% GW stuff and I will scrutinise your conversion to check that you've used GW glue to stick it together'.

Best place for gaming is totally home> LGS> gaming club> GW though, at least in my area. I find GW's a fine place to game when you're starting out, but it tends to be just that; a place where beginners play.

I take your point bitsandkits but I would have thought the odd specialist weapon or head would be ok.

On a different subject I was looking on the GW website and saw that they are selling ten Citadel 32mm Round Bases as a webstore exclusive for £3. does this mean we will have to rebase all our figures or will the old style 25mm bases still be usable?

Play your models with the bases supplied with them, those are for people that want to up the size.

They look way cooler on the 32mm base. I have a mixed Death Company squad and the ones on the bigger bases are massively more imposing on the battlefield....and it makes us subtly harder to get blast templates on.

To contrast my experience at one GW where I laughed and walked out, the one in the city I live in is OK with conversions provided the model is at least 70% GW product or GS'd to whatever degree.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
