I have to agree that BB and Necro are two of the best games GW has produced.
We've had tons of fun from the Blood bowl game, and necro was fun while we
played it.

Warhammer quest is a fun game. I've seen heaps of the newbies and younger
players getting into the game, which can only be good. Unfortunatley they'll
probably sprout up to be WFB players. :-(

Sorry about the insult to the WFB players. ;-)

Even with all the negativity about GW that exists and I definitely feel,
there are still good points about them and they do produce some of the best
games around. It's mainly the business attitude that really annoys me. I'll
keep playing epic and blood bowl until my figures wear out.
