Default The TO rant about GW's typing mistakes (un-official)

Rant about all the typing mistakes GW has made! Come now members of TO and express your feelings after noticing that funny/annoying mistake GW made!

Here's a few I noticed on the space-marine online-store page:

-'Whirlwind MK2' but underneath is the 'Vindicator MK11' - so which is it GW?

-'Space Marine with Multi-Melta/Lascannon/Heavy Bolter (1 Model)' but underneath is 'Space Marine with Plasma Cannon' - Yay apparently a Space Marine with Plasma Cannon comes with (an) additional model(s)!

Rant away!

Well this isn't really a mistake, what you actually saw was Vindicator MKII which means MK2, switching between latin and arabic numerals is practically canon now the amount GW does it, ignore it.

aagh! the insult, it hurts so! Don't worry, i know MK2 is the same as MKII, and i can amagine GW switching between the two - but these are right next to each other! How do they not manage to spot the mistake?? Anyway it was an example, so I challenge you of TO to come up with a real mistake then, one not quite so common. Or, if it is common, a really funny or annoying one.

well I've never heard of a special character named "Fabius Bike"

(check the new chaos dex, apparently Fabius Bile has no wargear because Fabius Bike took it all =P)

if anyone has one of the original copies of imperial armour vol.1 there is an interesting typo.......

one of the pages is full of text with no spaces at all

i might pick up my copy of IA3 tonight and see if i can decode it as well

Theres atleast one in every book...But in BL they seem to just mix up charecters alot, they accidentaly type the wrong name and no-one notices...Ragnar and Sven change places at one point in the space wolves saga.

And by far the most amusing...Look at the blurb on the back of the Apoc rulebook

Honestly is it too much to ask for correct grammer?

Well you know GW, they know they can not put much effort in and charge silly prices and people will still buy it
