So, Games Workshop has a few frustrating things going on. The major 3 issues that come to mind whenever I think about them are: Price Point (includes availability of products), The game (includes fluff and crunch), and "we sell models".
Their Price point and product availability hare laughable. The biggest issue with their pricing is that they charge based on the effectiveness of the unit in question, rather than on any physical qualities the model has (amount of plastic in the model, level of detail, etc). Thus you end up with boxes like a Grey Knight 5 man strike squad box (again, 5 guys with reasonable customization and something like 2 sprus) costing the same amount as a squad of ordinary space marines (box of 10 guys, 4 or more sprus, slightly less customizable). This isn't always the case, but it's close to being a rule, and it's made even worse by how much everything costs to begin with. As well as the prices having gone up drastically over the past 7 or so years. Just as an example, a squad of 10 metal Grey Knight dorks cost 40 dollars canadian when I quit in 2008, and now costs 70 dollars for a box of 10 plastic ones. Regardless of the shift from metal to plastic, or any customization you've been given, this isn't a good trade, especially if you are any kind of competent modeler yourself. Also, just cuz I thought of it, Codecs cost 30 dollars back then, and now cost 60, with no additional crunch, and insignificant additional fluff.
This leads pretty well into the "we sell models" point. Games Workshop constantly denies that they are selling a game, and that, in fact, they are selling model kits for people to have a modeling experience with. Aside from this clearly being bullshit via their pricing plans based on quality of specific units in the GAME, they also make a GAME. It's completely ludicrous, and it just doesn't make sense. They are, however, dead set on the idea that they produce modeling kits that are not used for any other purpose than for the sheer pleasure of modeling and painting.
And this in turn leads beautifully into The Game. GW is rabidly protective of their IPs, and will go out and sue anyone who uses the name Space Marine on any kind of model. They're also ass at balancing their games, as well as supporting their games, and doing anything good with their games. They have consistently promoted people who are clueless when it comes to game design, and their fluff writers as well as "novelists" are mind-numbingly shitty writers. In the crunch, they are consistently unclear with rules interactions, as well as carelessly changing armies to sell whatever minis are hot. They have shrunk their stores to the point that they're essentially like visiting the website, and they've done absolutely nothing to promote the hobby/gaming culture and community in their areas because it's not "profitable".
Which once again leads into the shitty financial mindset.
Really, I can't adequately explain how shitty they've been to their loyal fans over the last 15 years, but it's shitty, and it sucks. And it's weird that I'm hooked at all, let alone as hooked as I am, all things considered.

A technique used in auto racing... pretty cool, but first tries are doomed to fail horrendously
basically you operate clutch and brake with your left foot, leaving the right foot only for throttle. It decreases the time between braking and accelerating again, helps control vehicle load transfer... also simultaneous gas and brake keeps turbo pressure and reduces turbo lag
