GW have certainly done plenty of things to hack off their fans in the
UK. (Starting in the 1980s when they were still a general gaming
company.) It hasn't done them much harm; their entire business model

keeping existing players. From a purely financial point of view, being a
toy vendor rather than a wargame vendor clearly works for them...
