Well THAT clears things up a bit (or at least until the inevitable 'every answer that comes from GW is different' comments start to fly). I'd also like to offer Mitchell @ Ottawa Gamer a special thanks for actually posting the entire thing, including whom he got it from instead of just saying he asked & got that reply.
Eventually I'm sure allies will go away, and my little circus side shows with them, but I'll hold out as long as I can.
I got into 40k when I was 19, and my state of personal finances has been all but destroyed ever since. These days I play primarily X-Wing and Bolt Action, but still dabble in 40k, WHFB, CBT, as well as various other odds and ends. I am also weening myself off of a long term addiction to the EVE Online MMO. Basically I'm just your standard issue gaming geek.
I am in no way making any money from this page (though by my description & various posts, you can see that GW is making a hellova lot off of me), and it should be said that I do NOT intend to add banner ads. (I find them intrusive & distracting). This page is purely to show my love of the hobby, which has consumed a fair portion of my life. Thank you for taking the time to read & consider these statements. Now please scroll up & read the fun stuff and not my amateur-ish attempts at 'legaleze'.
