world at the moment is british (Jamie P). Here in Norway it's not quite as big as either 40k or Fantasy, but unlike other non-GW games it has a presence across the nation of players who regard it as their main game.

One of the things thats bugged me with most Miniatures wargames, and Warhammer Fantasy/40k and WarmaHordes is this...
These games are all designed and balanced for the most part with casual play in mind. This unfortunately leads to very unusual issues when these rules and armybooks/codexes are used in tournaments...
I've felt for a long time that if a company wants to support tournament play, then they need to release a seperate rules set and army lists for JUST such games...

Having said that, for Privateer Press, there are specific tournament rules that address some of the issues that you bring up. You cannot just bring whatever you want to a tournament. You have to have a set list. And the vast majority of tournament play is based on scenario, which changes it significantly from casual play.
If Warhammer 40k begins really ramp up tournament play, I say more power to them. I think it's a great way to market a game. It creates buzz and community. And tournament play helps enrich the community in a self-perpetuating manner.
The issue with Games Workshop is not their tournaments or what have you, though. The issue is their price point and cost of entry into the game in the first place. I think at least lowering the barrier of entry in their new edition would do worlds of good for them.

GW on the other hand have dropped out of tournaments, at least according to what I hear. In Europe the guys that run and go to the ETC (European Team Championships) for Fantasy spends a lot of time making their own rules pack, complete with extra points to poor armies, limits on broken armies and even their own rules FAQ.
