Just curious which armies are money drainers. I am interested in Dark elves but seems many of their units are pewter... will that be a money drainer too?
You should be fine with dark elves. The real "money drainers" are armies with lots of troops. Goblins, Skaven, Beasts of Chaos, and Empire (depending on how you play them) can all be pretty rough on the wallet because their troops are so cheap you need to buy lots of them.
DE should be ok soon, as theyre getting redone then most of their rang should be plasticted.
The most expensive army by far, i think, is a Beasts of Chaos army. Everything bar Beast Herds are metal, not nice on the wallet.
A skaven army heavy in slaves. 2 point model, AUD$6 figure.
I'd say an expensive army is one that involves mostly metal figures, or way oversized hordes. Since DE come into neither of them, I'd say you're safe.
Please don't tell me you actually use slave models for you slaves.....
But it is definately Beasts of Chaos, in particular a minotaur heavy army.
Ah, so that's why GW introduced the Doombull as a prospective General.
So now we all know. There is often a dark, mysterious factor behind seemingly innocent things they do.
just a thought here, how do VC shape up?
They often need to buy models they won't necessarily use, just in case. e.g. spirit hosts, skeles, zombies, dire wolves, ghouls.
Almost every unit can have more models than you started with.
I imagine you could quite feasibly proxy anything man-sized as a Zombie, but you do have a point.
