Like the product, loath the company.
They produce a decent line of miniatures, but there are a lot of companies out there now that do just as well, if not better. GWs advantage is that they have an established rule set to go with theirs, altho rules support has gone downhill over the last 5+ years. And that's where my largest gripe lies, in their lack of rules support, Poorly written rules, lack of timely FAQs/errata. Most of those that I know of that have left the hobby have done so to to disillusionment with the rules.I don't really see what's not to like imo. When it comes down to it they produce high quality products, and particularly when you consider the scale which they operate are pretty unique, there really isn't anything else like it out there as a buisness. Also, remember that as a company, up untill about 2 years ago they'd been making massive losses and were on the verge of going under.
In those circumstances i see no problem with them producing a magazine that's one long advert, or releasing new expansions that basically encourage everyone to buy more tank kits, or even that they've stopped the option where you could order individual pieces of a kit (thinking particularly boneswords for tyranids). Yeah, we all love a whinge about that dissapointing crap, but if it stops them going out of buisness then that's fine by me.
Long live the only real geek's outlet on the highstreet! :king:
I have to admit that i would love it if they got gothic back in store rahter than online only. It's really difficult for people start the game without that insentive(Me incuded as me and my friend will hopfuly be startign it in the near future)Bring back Battlefleet Gothic and Epic 40K, get rid of all the adverts in WD then stop all the legal BS.
Then i'd like the company.
Love 40K tho, and the models.
They used to stock them in my local GW for a while, it was only recently they had to get rid of them...I have to admit that i would love it if they got gothic back in store rahter than online only.
