I was joking.

Yeah an average of $7.50 a minie I think is pushing it. warzone the better
minnies are $5.00, maybe because it's Aussie made.

People don't seem to pick up sublte humour anymore.

Yeah, those leagl types are right nasty. They stopped a friend of ours small
business who was importing minnies and selling them to clubs for just over
cost price so that they were actually reasonably priced. They put a stop to
that quick-smart when they found out. He's considering moving to Warzone now
to keep his business going. Now that sucked. And it was stupid. he was
probably the biggest seller of minnies for GW here for a long while, and now
that has stopped.

My attitude varies, but I doubt it'll catch hold of me. There is a nice
array of other outlets for my gaming time and money that continually make me
see GW as a petty inconsiderate company that is far too forceful on their
players, purchasers and rivals when the other avenues are considered. I
think it's just they have become too big to see the small picture. 5 or 6
years ago, people played GW like no tomorrow, and while we whined about the
systems we kept playing. Now there are decent rivals a lot of the groups
have changed from them not accepting inferior games.
