Hey there's no advertising or commerce going on here. It's no secret that there is a kit available and if people want to express excitement for it then that's fine.
I can't wait for Mark to get his kit and paint it up - I have no doubts that he will do my masterpiece complete justice
I did not suggest that there was
any specific advertising/open commerce going on, if there were the offending posters would be receiving warnings from a security drone rather than a Shas'vre taking the time out of his own busy schedule to ensure nobody does need that security drone visit.
Instead this is a gentle nudge to keep the comments directed at congratulating you on your hard work, fine craftsmanship and a job exceptionally well done. And, when it comes to it of course, Warhound's work with the paints to bring one of these beasts to life.

And it is not that we do not want to see your project, or others (like Joek's) succeed, or even that we would not want to help them along the way if we could, but there are broader considerations effecting the administration of this forum which preclude us from being able to do so. As with some of our other rules, they may occasionally make us appear draconian but in the long run they help us to keep ATT running trouble free without GW, ATT's host or any other external entity having any issues with us.
