"The final change we are making is that from the new season all the events we run with will be only allowing Battlefront miniatures to be used. This is bound to cause some debate, so let me be clear as to why we have chosen to go down this path. Joe, Gareth and our events cost a great deal of money to run: a little over a quarter of a million American dollars this year alone. And, although it seems childish to draw a line in the sand and say, “If you want to play at our events and support the FOW hobby, you should not be bringing other people’s models along,” it is absolutely that simple. Our business is a business and we want Flames Of War to grow; we intend to give it the best support we can, but this support has a cost."I wonder. Where have I seen that before? I already knew I disliked FoW, but this just takes the cake.

Battlefront go all GW
From the Flames of War official site via the excellent Neil Shutt of Meeples and Miniatures (actually on the Facebook group). Empasis mine.
