No doubt those of you who have supported Games Workshop in the past by creating files for use with their games will have noticed they are all being deleted from BGG at the behest of their lawyers.

So here's a little paeon to the games that I spent many hours creating rules summaries and reference sheets for that are no longer available here. They're still at my personal site, but I don't imagine they'll be there for long.

No doubt they'll be more items on this list before long.

If you are interested in my opinion of this kind of activity, check out the latest entry on my blog at www.headlesshollow.com.

Can anyone actually play these games with just a rules summary? Actually, does anyone actually play a game like this anymore at all?

The sad thing is, if some of these games had been supported by the company instead of being abandoned they would have made money out of them.

There goes all the Battlecars stuff. My rework of this game took a long, long time to do and it's a shame I can't share it with anyone anymore. Or maybe GW is planning a re-release of this 1983 game? Yeah, right.

Here's how ridiculous this is - this game was made available for download for free by GW ages ago. So how am I affecting the company by having a rules summary here?

Because it's a big lawyer's broom sweeping away everything.

They had BGG yank a card list that I did awhile back... a card list? WTF? just a crude text list of the cards!? I didn't know it was so super secret!

Now my family is fearful, and we're sleeping in the basement, worried that the Games Workshops thugs are going to do a drive-by.

Oh wait. Lawyers don't do that kinda thing. Their form of intimidation is far scarier...

The Games Workshop lawyer/thugs had BGG pull a "turn sequence quicky". I'm sure the GW Storm Troopers will be by to confiscate my computer in the dead of night so they can purge the original text file as well...

I lost the new combat cards I made for DungeonQuest. I did several player aids so expect the others to disappear soon.



The reason I made them was my copy's cards were in bad shape. So thought others would enjoy having new cards too to replace worn copies.

Yes GW, you have saved the world as we know it. I'm sure those combat cards were going to kill a puppy or club a seal. yuk

This is the only GW game I currently own and have no interest in supporting them from now on. I do own the FFG edition of Talisman which now feels abit dirty...

I made an Excel Army List program for the Tau army. And I made it way sooner than I uploaded it here.

It was thrashed today surprise

I understand the reasoning here, as the program uses the Values and Names from the Tau Codex (though they stay hidden from view of the general populace).

But anyway, this is crap...
