This sounds familiar... I was setting up a game at our gaming club's
meeting last Sunday - Fantasy Rules!, with 15mm figs from various
companies - and one of the local GW players wanders by - this guy also
works at the local GW store.

Turns out this prat is one of those "GW Is The One True Gaming Company,
And The Font of All Creativity" types - he can't look at a single mini
my boxes without figuring it to be a rip-off of some GW product... Then
this prat starts telling, with grisly relish, various unlikely stories
GW's legal trashing of, it seems, every other game company in the world.

My gaming friends wonder why I dislike GW so much...
