Petition to WWE Board of Directors, World Wrestling Entertainment

PETITION: The Davey Boy Smith WWE Hall of Fame Petition.

Celebrities supporting this petition. Davey WWE accomplishments were amazing and thrilling. Davey was always ready to step in to the squared circle. Every night Davey sacrificed his own health to thrill fans all over the world and he did it because he loved the business. The Career of Davey boy Smith is without doubts the biggest factory in the amazing support the British fan’s give the WWE over the past four decades. He drew in children of my generation with his amazing power and patriotic character and once we started watching the World Wrestling Entertainment we were all hooked. The fact that Summer Slam 1992 was such a success and still holds up as a brilliant pay per view does shows how important The British Bulldog (Davey Boy Smith) was to the WWE and the whole wrestling business in general . That what the WWE Hall of Fame is there for to recognize the greats such as Davey Boy Smith. Without Davey being in the WWE Hall of Fame there will always be a strong British and European contingent representing him and fighting for him the way he fought to represent us the British and the European fans. Please would you vote for the British Bulldog to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame. We don't have a British Hall of Famer in the World Wrestling Entertainment. We also feel this petition might help other British wrestlers to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame after Davey is inducted. This petition is also to get a country to be recognize in the WWE Hall of Fame. Please sign for the United Kingdom and for the British Bulldog. This petition was created with permission from Davey Boy Smith family and supported by Wrestling Legends and Wrestling promoters.

Petition to Games Workshop

Reboot the Sisters of Battle (Adepta Sororitas) army models in plastic.

It has been over ten years since the Sisters of Battle (Adepta Sororitas) range, that is manufactured by Games Workshop, had any genuinely new models. In recent years there has only been a digital copy of the codex rules. The bulk of the current models are dated from the Warhammer 40,000 game's 2nd and 3rd editions which dates from the late 90's to early 00's. There is clearly a demand for Sisters of Battle to be rebooted as a largely plastic range which is evident on online communities and forums such as the Sisters of Battle dedicated group on Facebook. Everyone who collects this army feels that it has been severely neglected despite responses from Games Workshop on the matter that Sisters of Battle have not been forgotten. Because of the lack of up-to-date models, a physical codex book or any other news of this ilk a lot of Sisters of Battle players have been forced to give up on the army. This is due to lack of new models and the current outdated range being far too expensive when compared to others available. To quote an active Sisters of Battle collector: "I belong to a Sisters of Battle page on Facebook, there's literally thousands of people worldwide that would buy them tomorrow! (if the models were rebooted)." It would, however, take a huge investment of time and money on Games Workshop's part to design the new models and then pay for new tooling and moulds to make said models in a different medium. This is why the signature target for this petition is so high. This would hopefully prove that many players strongly wish to see the Sisters of Battle range recieve similar attention and investment as many of the current armies available. Another very compelling reason to reboot the entire Sisters of Battle range in mostly plastic, though not the main one, is the pricing of some of the current metal models. To buy a set of ten Battle Sisters (the standard infantry for Sisters of Battle) currently costs £49.70. If someone wishes to collect a sizable army they would have to pay a very large sum for the infantry whereas for other armies, that are almost entirely made in plastic, only cost a fraction of this. An example is the standard Space Marine Tactical Squad, for £25.00 you get enough parts for ten models plus a lot of optional extras. By other comparisons with the larger models such as tanks, the Sisters of Battle tanks are priced quite reasonably when compared to similar Space Marine counterparts. One good example is the Immolator tank. At the time of writing, this retails at £22.50 and costs the same as a Space Marine Rhino tank and they are based on the same plastic model. Prices are obtained from the Games Workshop website.UPDATE: The comments on this petition have proven that the overall consensus is not the price of the current metal models being an issue, rather that players would like to see the vast majority of the Sisters of Battle range rebooted with new model sculpts and brand new models added to those already available. With this much demand and the immense potential to add new models to the existing roster of model types and characters it would be a great opportunity for Games Workshop.
