Yes! I love games workshop! they are so friendly! I love the models!
I hate them! they are arrogant and wont stop their rediculous price increases!
I really dont know...
Games Workshop, do we hate their high prices and snotty store salesmen that backstab you into buying the most expensive things possible and lying about their own collections? Do we hate how white dwarf battle reports are rigged it isn't fun to read at all??? Or do we love Games Workshop?
Ahh, the word is Ridiculous not rediculous
Just thought I should bring it to the poll writers attention.
Diabolus fecit, ut id facerem!
Dude, you buy the models, you read the magazine, if you hate them so much then STOP buying models and playing the games. we play GW games because they're enjoyable and the idea is that we pay money for that enjoyment, if they need to raise prices to expand their line than so be it! you don't NEED to read WD, and you certainly don't need to buy models if you think they suck.

I love GW.
Sure, like all love it's not untainted, but they do provide me with a great hobby, one I would never have gotten into if it wasn't for them.
And if the price seems too high, why not take longer time to paint and convert? That'll make the price per hour lower I assure you
I'm just fed up with hearing all this anti-GW crap, it's like those damn hippy protesters telling whining about election returns. yeah, the system is unfair, but you voted, which means that you willingly participated in the "unfair" system. same goes for screaming on about how GW sucks but still buying the models. you can't whine about the system if you support it.

I'd also like to add that this, a forum devoted primarily to their products, is not really going to get you an unbiased opinion. Plus I'm not sure I see the value of the poll- can you explain? Are you trying to find out something in particular or is it more of a rant in disguise?
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
jeez, it is just a poll. I personally like miniatures, am ok with the prices. I just hate how the store people try to shove things on you. Everybody must have had something like that happen to them. And lel, i am just making a poll, dont wet your pants about it!:yes:
yea i love the hobby but i don't get all this whining, though i do understand the anger made by most hobbyists about GW's ridiculous prices besides, there are other ways to buy GW miniatures without folking out bucket loads like Ebay :shifty:
it's the inflation prices, it's inevitable that GW is going to raise the prices every 3 years to avoid the small change so i suggest that you get used to it and adapt because it's only going to get higher...
just my opinion folks so don't take it personally
Yeah I guess you've got to weigh it up against the cost of any other hobby or sport. My two daughters both play sports and constantly seem to be at me for more money for uniforms, travelling away, club and association fees etc.. With warhammer once you've bought the figures, thats pretty much it. If you game at a club in the bigger cities, they have to charge a few dollars to cover their costs which I don't have a problem with; but if you play at home with a few mates then no extra expense. Also if you do a reasonable paint job, you can pretty much make some of your money back on figures by selling them on ebay if you want to get out of the hobby. Anyone who has a hobby of drinking at the pub or hotting up their car etc. can't say the same. Their money is dead and gone.
I get asked every time I go into GW if they can help; but a firm but polite "I'm O.K." seems all that is necessary to say for salesmen to leave me alone.
There are other figure manufacturers around who make brilliant figures too, but very few have shops where you can walk in and look before you buy. I buy a lot of my figures through mail order if I know exactly what I want; but its always nice to wander in the shop and day dream. After all this I will have a winge too. Why is the music always so ##### loud in GW shops!!!!!! :w00t:
