    I haven't heard about this case until now, but I am not surprised at all that GW engages in this sort of thing. It's what corporations do and it's very common. The bigger they are the more they push...

    I posted in the other thread, and I didn't know some of this was going on until I just read it now. I do know that trying to sell off a few GW things on ebay that I'll never paint to fund a few...
