Bugger. Some mate of mine were going to start doing something like that,
instead they just opened a painting service. Not only does GW seem to go
against rival shops, but they also go against their own shops - eg. the shop
here gets shitty if you got something from their Sydney store. Wankers.

I still dont see how GW can see how they could be potentially hurting
themselves. I guess it is for the quick buck and the armies of ignorant
10-year old spastics who dont know better, or simply refuse to. Like those
people who think McDonalds is good for you, let alone edible.
