What you talking 'bout GW?


Yesterdays White Dwarf Daily caught my attention. Not the content itself, but one specific word used in the first sentence. Here it is copied word for word.....

"May's issue of White Dwarf is out on Saturday in all Games Workshop Hobby Centres and all good independent stockists."

What do they mean by all GOOD independent stockists? Are they taking a stab at all the retailers that have come under scrutiny for selling new releases early?

 Second, I still think it is funny how they describe the content of the magazine....

"As always it will be packed with hobby articles, from our stage-by-stage painting guides in Paint Splatter to the action-packed Battle Report."

I am specifically referring to the "action-packed" part. The battle reports haven't been action packed in years. Most of the time you can't even follow what is happening because they leave out vital information. I for one would also enjoy them more if the armies were legal and the people playing them knew what they were doing. Maybe GW should let people send in battle reports. That would be much more entertaining.

I guess you can always count on GW to give you a good laugh with their strange and ridiculous statements.
