This information was taken from a video that while it looks like the camera was hidden, apparently I am told the Forgeworld guys knew it was there. The video was sent into me and is taken at Pax Seattle 2012. The guy filming got a moment with one of the main Forge World guys in their booth. While I wont show the video (that was part of the deal), here is the information that came from it.
Please remember that these are rumors.
