Just clicked on their website, never heard of the before and I find it amusing that he's charging £34.50 per a years subs for six magazines but charges £4.50 per issue. Maths clearly isn't his strong point but throwing stones from glass houses is.
AoW is too dear for me but not for some and Warlord don't think up the prices so he should go awa' an' bile his heid.
I deleted my own subsequent posts as they were made in the heat of the moment and used some language unsuitable for 13 year olds (potentially) to read in an open forum like facebook. Plus he actually appears to be having a go at Architects of war rather than Warlord.
I was a little hosed off as I have just supported him by buying the first 10 issues of his magazine in pdf format (Which is very good by the way, no issues with that) when the more unscrupulous could have downloaded them through various nefarious channels.
Social media has the potential to do companies, especially the smaller ones, great harm without always giving the company the chance to defend itself before it's too late. Damage in this case is probably limited as he's only got 257 followers but that's not the point.
Wow, not only does that look like an arrogant pompous prick, but he comes off as one too.
So guess I won't waste my time with Battlegames magazine, with a knob like that running the show. He doesn't even have a contact button so I can tell him what an arse he is.
edit - found it! And most certainly told him what an arse he is:
"Read your rant on your Facebook page. What the hell? A "fiercely independent" attack on Warlord, which only sells the turnip field, utterly trashes any "journalistic integrity" you might have had. Perhaps you should consider that as an editor of a "magazine", your off the cuff remarks about pricing only reflect back on your own shoddy product. £48.00 for a thin, piece of rubbish want-to-be magazine? What, did people just fall off the turnip truck? That's $12+ Canadian per copy. INSANE.
Off to buy a turnip field.
ps - Don't waste time emailing back - you have been blocked."

The Revolution will not be televised!
You will not be able to stay home, brother. You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out. You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip, Skip out for beer during commercials, Because the revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be televised. The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox In 4 parts without commercial interruptions. The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John Mitchell, General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary. The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be brought to you by the Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie Woods and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia. The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal. The revolution will not get rid of the nubs. The revolution will not make you look five pounds thinner, because the revolution will not be televised, Brother.
There will be no pictures of you and Willie May pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run, or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance. NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32 or report from 29 districts. The revolution will not be televised.
There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down brothers in the instant replay. There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down brothers in the instant replay. There will be no pictures of Whitney Young being run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process. There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy Wilkens strolling through Watts in a Red, Black and Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving For just the proper occasion.
Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville Junction will no longer be so damned relevant, and women will not care if Dick finally gets down with Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people will be in the street looking for a brighter day. The revolution will not be televised.
There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock news and no pictures of hairy armed women liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose. The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb, Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash, Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth. The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be right back after a message about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people. You will not have to worry about a dove in your bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl. The revolution will not go better with Coke. The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath. The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.
The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised. The revolution will be no re-run brothers; The revolution will be live.

But we all know!
If I had a Facebook account (deleted mine a couple of years ago) - I think the only fair and rightful thing to do would be to ask him what he thinks about the price of turnip fields in current production.
