Try the shiney new law suit culture, wouldn't you do everything you could not to get sued?

But those Kans are 14A... must be harsher language involved in their assembly.
Sigged FTW

Seriously though, if a kid is dumb enough to eat a fecking killa kan they deserve a fuckin Darwin Award.

It is a little stupid, I knew a 15 year old who put his hand on the wrong place on the board when I was playing with my Dark Eldar needless to say he ended up with bleeding fingers and my warriors stayed in tact!

DE are nasty, but I'd put Grey Knight halberds ahead of them. They're durable, upright, and surprisingly pointy in most cases. I've actually had stitches for GK-inflicted palm wounds.

To be honest I dont blame GW for covering there asses, its ridiculous however some stories that i've heard about frivolous law suits that mean no food or drink in store

A woman had coffee spilled on her and is suing GW for that and thus i cant eat or drink in any store in the UK anymore

So im guessing the reason for this sudden warning is

A kid cut himself on a GW model and they are being sued hence the sudden warnings on boxes

IMHO I tihnk that to day's society is PC gone mad and added to that I'm going to sue you if my son/daughter falls over next to your bin etc. I mean why for god-sake its just Gw covering themselves incase someone gets hurt but honestly it goes with the gaming, its not like we want to field an army of bubblewrap or hello kitty marines etc is it... althought hello kitty marines .... anyway I digress

Why are GW covering themselves well...

Because if they get hurt, they get sued.
If they get sued and it happens again they get sued for more, and have claims of negligance added to it, which costs them yet more money.

GW is essentially a profit organisation so hiring lawyers for law suits and paying out to law suits is an expenditure they dont want

In the end its best for them to just redesign there boxes which costs them next to nothing
