A business that is built on miniatures and the rules for a game of those miniatures actually wants to get money for what it produces?And this right here is the problem with GW atm, feels like they go out of their way to leech as much money as they can out of their customers.
How can that come as unusual or a surprise.
Did the person who complied these rules do it for free? are the printers and shippers doing it because they are dedicated 40k'ers?
Bottom line. GW is a business with massive overheads and they need to make money.
I don't want my rules to be a print out from my own shitty bubble jet I want a groovy bound book. If you have the free printouts you can't make the book as no one will buy it.
