Good on the posters of Dakka for not linking a highly sarcastic picture of a pen and paper yet..

Instead they are removing something of use to us in the hobby and not providing their own version. We also know when/if they do, it will be far more limited and far more expensive.
Right, kind of like Battlefront did with the Flames of War Army Builder?
Rather than just try and shut them down, which as shown above is murky legal waters, they just gave them an official sanction to do continue distribution. I'm presuming now that the guy who made the army builder (I forget the name!) just pays Battlefront in some form. Although, it's not likely that they will get much as I believe it's only £1 or so for each data file!
End result in any case; the fans lose out again. I don't think even the people who are arguing here for GW
's 'right' to do so would argue against that.
Presumably there will be some kind of official version on the way?
