    $30 for dikes? $26 for a pin vise? That seems rather excessive and I find that to be rather humorous.

  • I feel that the cost is not reflective of the quality and quantity of materials provided.

      Their hobby tools used to be almost reasonable. Now…

  • estrus

    I agree that the price for this particular product line seems out of place and set unnecessarily high.

    I feel like this was a missed opportunity. They could have put the clippers together with little skull-headed screws so they could be assembled with a proprietary skull-headed screwdriver.

    This is not something I would buy.

      GW makes it so easy.

      And their product use has mostly died out in Memphis. All the older gamers have switched from GW stuff to Bolt Action and since they closed Warhammer World (formerly the Memphis Battle Bunker/their US distribution/factory) they’ve killed the main place that was keeping the game alive here. And this was their main US facility!

        Yeah GW sold two models in the world last month and all ex GW players went on with their new games and never looked back.

    You forget, for $150 until sometime next month you get that awesome space marine holding his gun in his hand for free…. mmm… that IS a suspicious pose.

    When I saw the white dwarf with these advertised in it I said to my coworker “Bet those snips are gonna cost $30.” Looks like I was right. I don’t see the point in it honestly, I already spent $20 on a set of Xuron sprue snips and they should last me a long time.

    • Grindar

      GW goes for the package push for the newbies. “Let us show you our starter set where you get this incredible deal on model prices compared to our normal prices and it has unique figures! And since you’re gonna pick that up, you’ll need these snips, plastic glue, a hobby knife…Do you already know which way you want to paint them? Because we have this great intro paint set, we can just add the bottles you’ll need to highlight, and some washes…

      Did you want to go ahead and pick up the codexes and full rulebooks so you can be ready to start building a bigger army?”

      Saw it a hundred times at the Bunker. The thinking is once they get into your wallet they’re gonna add as many things as possible. Same reason best buy can sell Monster cables…sure you can get equivalent performance and a lower price by looking elsewhere, but you’re being pressured immediately, you do need a cable, it’s conveniently right there and can get it now, and what’s $40 compared to the new big screen you just put on the credit card…

    This says everything about this subject I want to say. And as my mama used to tell me, “If ya ain’t got nothin’ nice to say, don’t say nothin’!”

      “If ya ain’t got nothin’ nice to say, don’t say nothin’!”

      That’s a great saying, except that many people (and companies) assume that: no comments = tacit approval. So sometimes, saying something negative is actually somewhat constructive in itself.

      • Indeed. So let’s go with a slight modification, “If you don’t have something constructive to say, then don’t say anything.”

        • Major_Gilbear

          But… But… If there is now a “constructive comment requirement” for everything posted on TTGN, how will all those Dice and RPG Soundtrack KS advertise their wares on TTGN then?

          “Here are some jumbo inflatable fudge dice in the exact colours of the Nigerian embassy flag that is in London (UK) for use with an RPG soundtrack (‘A Thousand Nails on a Blackboard’, now with the bonus track ‘Cat Strangling in a Giant Tuba’) that we’re putting up on KS. We really want your money, and we know there are gullible people out there waiting to throw it at something stupid that has been done before – well, to those people we say now is your chance!
          (BTW, you should really wash your clothes sometimes and consider using deodorant).”

          So, I guess that at least contains constructive comments, right? =0P

          • Soulfinger does it better.

            Anyway, you let me worry about what’s appropriate for news-feed posts. Everyone else just has to worry about staying appropriate in the comments to those news-feed posts.
