The company is British, but the minatures that we get are moulded in
Victoria as part of Eureka. Or they just distribute them, one of the two.

Oh yeah. Apparently the ordering system has been changed too. It used to be
cheaper to order things from GWUK if you had enough stuff to get at once,
now they want you to order from Sydney full stop. Unless you want bits you
have to go through there. I guess they worked out that it costs us more to
be buy from nearby then from across the world, and they were missing out on
their precious profits and stopped it. Apparently a New Zealand group wanted
to order about 500 pounds of stuff from GWUK and were refused, and some
people from GWUS were told they couldn't order through GWUK. I don't
understand? A sale is still a sale isn't it?

Hey, McDonalds proved in court that Coke is nutricious. Someone took them to
court and they had to admit that their interpretation of nutritrion is if it
has calories. So coke, that lovely acidic stuff is good for you according to
them. Good analogy for the GW attitude toward the gamer. Just buy our stuff,
it's good for you, honest.
