Apparently Games Workshop and their sometimes less than wonderful business practices have made it into the mainstream news. Or at least an online website that is more main stream than Bell of Lost Souls.
It’s only a hobby. No one forced anyone to invest time and effort into it, of course being forced to take down your attempt to share that time and effort…
Anyway I’m not losing any sleep over this. I’ve been around the block a few times, there are other games to play, there are other models to paint, there are video games which will be the death of miniature wargaming yet.
For the record GW has never done anything bad to me personally, nor have they ever even contacted me officially, except once to publish something I wrote in Citadel Journal. I did not get the promised compensation for that and only learned they published it at all, when a friend and GW store manager showed me the published article. They didn’t even fix the spelling mistakes…
GW keeps getting bigger and a lot of the original staff have less and less influence, they still have stock and aren’t hurting for money, plus they get to design and play games for a living.
People just take things too seriously, it is only a game, it is only a hobby, wait until the first war over the world’s water supply to breaks out, if you really want to worry about something.
Maybe the Church of the Customer folks will weigh in on this. This seems up their alley.
