I completely agree with maintaining a good relationship with GW. Adjusting
the cards to fit the new miniature releases is an excellant idea. Making
sure the website has easy access to E:A and the new miniatures will help
that relationship. Keeping NetEpic focused on our SM2/TL game system, yet
current with the new Epic miniature releases is in the best interest of
NetEpic and GW. I believe that this strategy will keep Netepic alive and
vibrant for the forseeable future and perhaps get some new players to try
that "other" Epic system.
