i was just thinking wot every1 else thought about the prices of 40K?
i mean... it is A LOT of fun and such... but is AUD $50 too much cash to pay for 12-20 little plastic men??
don't get angry and start bagging me out and saying "DIE NOOB!!!"... its just i have no income and wanted to know wot the other 40K fans think about their money...
Yeah I agree it's to expensive for the models. Then I have to buy a chapter upgrade. Will the world ever stop plotting against me
I can be 2 things at once.
Gods gift to the world, and his biggest mistake
yeah, it costs wayyyy too much, but it's the hobby i've chosen, and i'm not gonna do myself less by not buying it once in a while!
This hobby is cheaper then being a guitarist with GAS(Guitar Acquisition Syndrome) like me.
I think it all comes down to what you compare it to.
If I decide to go out on the pub one night (albeit Sweden is quite expensive) all I get is a hangover, a few foggy memories and some angst. Instead I could have bought me a couple of GW-boxes and been busy forr a couple of weeks.
My friend's hobby is not GW-related. He drives around on his jetski, imagine the ammount of minis he could have bougth for that kind of money. Then there are quite a few golfers among my friends, and don't even get me started on the kind of money those guys spend on their hobby.
Not even videogames do (IMHO) stand a chance when comparing. A game that lasts six hours cost 600SEK, once again the same price as two boxed sets.
So, sure if you decide to have a hobby involving buying things it'll cost you some money, but I don't think the GW-goods are even close to the really expensive stuff.
I think it's the fact many people who do not play/collect GW-stuff can't understand it that makes it seem expensive.
"Soooo much money, for some small pieces of plastic??" that's just plain ignorance.
When ever someone says the same about...say ice-hockey-equipment, they are considered just ignorant as "everybody" knows there's more to those pieces of plastic than meets the eye. Just like minis
You pay for stuff with SEKs? Cool.
Yeah, GW is expensive but compared to almost any other hobby it's on par. I spend $100s (not SEKs, sadly) on my motorbike. I'd also SCUBA more if it were cheaper and how much does an X-box set you back these days. Even new paperbacks are expensive. It's good that things are expensive- I'd get no study done otherwise.
just a note- we're nice enough not to bag you for being a noob but we will bag you for net-speak and poor grammar and spelling.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
