I know GZG is different, but, do the Flames of War people allow you to
unofficial miniatures to play in their official tournaments?  Or the
Wizkids tournaments?  Does Mongoose Publishing let you bring homebrew
Shadow Omegas?

All of us can name a bunch of smaller companies that produce minis or
mini-like things that are 'open source' -- but I don't think any of the
larger, more popular game companies willingly embrace such an ideal.

So, I don't think the original assertion is invalid.  Has anybody
actually tried this and succeed with any of the bigger companies?
(Say Wizkids, Wizards of the Coast, SJ Games, Battlefront, Rackham --
things that the FLGS downstairs stocks.  I think I already know what GW
say.  (8-))
