At the store i go to in swindon UK we have to have painted and based our whole army also you have to own your own 5th edition rulbook even if the other player you are playing has one. I was wondering weather any of your local GW stors have rules like these and what you think of them.
Nothing more funny than 3 inquisitors with sanctify when facing deamons. They cant do anything while you stand in front of them having a tee break.
At my local store... well, back in Sheffield, they insisted on at least having your army primed.
They were slightly more lax about rules though.
Not that they understood them even if they did have them.
LO RulesOriginally Posted by AnonymousOriginally Posted by Cyric
My store in Canberra wouldn't let me use an Inquisitor I converted from a ringwraith because it was a LotR mini. They explained why and everything but I still thought it was a bit silly. Every time I buy something there and tell them what I'm going to convert it into they don't look happy. I think they must be trained to discourage people from doing their own thing or something. I seriously hate being told what I can and can't do with STUFF I BOUGHT. Once I buy it it's not theirs anymore... it's mine and I can do what I want with it.
That 5th ed rulebook thing is a bit of a blatant money grab, isn't it? What's next, you can't play unless you're wearing a $30 GW T-shirt?
Yeah that rule is a bit much, ours just wants you to have your army dex, not that they've ever actually asked anyone for proof.
Not that I've played instore, but from what I've seen is that you need only an army. They don't need to be painted and you don't need a rulebook.
Though I'm sure if you annoyed them every five minutes with questions, they would probably tell you to get one.
They are there to help you get into the game, not to put you off it. You should mention this to them. (nicely)
Much must be risked in war.

I don't blame the staff, but I do take issue with a few of the policies.
Well, of all those things one didn't sound that unreasonable. Some years ago (when the movies were released) you couldn't use a LotR miniature in any WH/40K game within a store; not only that, but parts of those miniatures couldn't be used for conversions in sanctioned tourneys either. This was not a decission of GW, but the result of an Intellectual Property deal with the holders of the LotR rights when they produced the game.
I had been told that it had changed since then, but I'm not sure it is true. The thing is, by allowing you to use that ringwraith as an inquisitor, they could be getting into big problems themselves, and thus why they didn't allow you to use it. (And I do know your pain, since I wanted to use balrog wings for my Hive Tyrant and was discouraged to do so for that very same reason).
