    Two things eh? Easy

    Brian Nelson and Jes Goodwin. Best sculptors on the planet.

    And I offer up their customer service as a little extra. GW is costly but they make sure they fix mistakes, and without trying to make you feel like a criminal...

    And I\'m a little perplexed as to why Vincenti has suggested that I\'m one of the good things about GW ???

    Maybe because your Lady Jena Orechiel from the inquisitor line is a wonderful miniature ;)

    My two bits:
    - gorkamorka miniatures
    - almost all the \'90 miniatures

    I\'m with Steve on one point:

    1/ Jes Goodwin and Brian Nelson (oh, wish both were sculpting more.....)

    2/ The rich background to 40K - allowing such excellent subjects to model.

    -> The Tau. We really like the Tau
    Both very good points :D I really like the Tau though I don\'t paint them due to my avoidance of buying whole squads. They are a clever use of \"anime style\" which incorporates some pretty unique aesthetics and ideas.

    Their Chaos powers fluff is pretty cool to be sure, it\'s clearly designed to allow the Chaos player to really \"role play\" on the game table, as it were, and really understand/appreciate their evil horde\'s motivations. Which might be difficult otherwise, for a well-adjusted individual :)

    they never made me put on a suit.

    they didn\'t mind me having long hair or a shaven head or a long beard when i was employed by them.

    the metal lotr minis are kick ass.

    Oh endless stuff, they may be going down the pan now but in their day they brought me nothing but joy, here are but a few of those special moments-

    1) The Lord of the Rings range, wonderfully simple and realistic rules and quality sculpting on anything that came from the film.

    2) Marine plastics, the definative ideal of a plastic kit. That the system of construction has lasted unblemished for nearly all the 8 years i\'ve been playing truly shows the foresight and craft of that particular range.

    3) The sculpters- Jes Goodwin, Brian Nelson and the Perry Brothers predominantly but Juan Diaz has made his mark and the forgeworld team are a practical SAS of sculpters.

    4) Acknowledgement of their roots. This mainly comes across in the immense amount of parodies, references and various other bits and peices from their background which even becomes educational, allowing a window into a huge wealth of different topics and areas of history.

    Those are the 4 most pertinent things which i admire GW unceasingly for, pity most of them have either been promoted or catagorised into obscurity or are otherwise in the hands of people doing them no favours.
