But people who are only interested in one of the three games would have
hell of an overhead. Think of GW's second incarnation of Epic. You could
boxes with not quite enough models to make Three different forces, now
if they
had sold each force separately...

Another problem I've seen here is New Edition vs Suplament. Is the
such a great idea? Think of it like SFB, you need the core rules PLUS
PLUS that PLUS the other before you can play. So for us old hands, a new

suplament may seem preferable, but I'd go for a new edition because that
what new players would want.
