Some sad news from Simon Burley, co-creator of 80's Brit favourite Golden Heroes - GW's legal department have cracked down upon SquadronUK, Simon's modern-rerelease-with-the-name-filed-off version despite having been told about the launch of the game years ago.
Simon's post on RPG.net about the bad news is here - http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?619361-Squadron-UK&p=15248391#post15248391.
I've never owned Golden Heroes but it was being pushed heavily in the first few White Dwarfs that I bought so it always looked intriguing especially with the excellent comic book art that GW used on the rules and various supplements. Did you know that it was picked up by Workshop as part of a masterplan to get the Marvel license?
I have SquadonUK in PDF having bought it recently but haven't had chance to sit down and have a serious look at it. Might be a collectors item now! :(
