I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    same as always i’m afraid…

    decent models but the cost to play GW games is IMHO way way too high, which is why i stopped some four years ago, and have not missed playing them one bit, and i played fantasy a lot.

    the only good thing about being expensive to buy new is you get good money when selling.

  • ater daeus

    $65 for a Land Speeder with wings? Ridiculous.

    • KelRiever

      Do you mean the Fantastic Four flying ship?

      Some GW models still look great. This falls into the category of the Terminator in a baby carrier the Grey Knights have. Forget that the price is ridiculous. Artistically I wasn’t aware the dark future included machinery that came out of Thundercats and Voltron.

      Hey, maybe that’s the new eye candy. I haven’t been the target audience of GW for a long, long time now.

      Price seems fair. Similar sized and smaller even figs from other companies are around same or more. Privateer Press large resin models retail for more and are smaller than this for example.

  • phoenixman

    yes but as you say Privateer press are RESIN, these are plastic and i know there isn’t £1.00 worth of plastic in a kit like this as i used to sell plastic powder for rotomoulders and i also have spoken to another BIG producer of kits and sprues for various companies and they told me the same also in relation to a box of 20+ plastic figures.

    so if $65 is correct the whole thing is probably not more than 3 or 4 dollars to produce inc boxes. the rest is to pay for the moulds i bet.

    • PanzerKraken

      The cost for plastic moulds of the quality GW uses is several thousands per sprue. Resin moulds cost very little in comparison.

      As for cost of material, resin is just as cheap if not more so than plastics.

  • General Hobbs

    The prices are a joke. GW owes it to its customers to sell them to us as cheaply as possible.

    • Soulfinger

      I feel the same way about electron microscopes. $80,000 second-hand, and then they expect me to coat my cilia in gold just to get a decent image! Hitachi owes me a better deal than that after I supported their company all these years buying Hitachi brand screwdriver bits. I am entitled.

      post up your email so I can send you my PayPal information to donate to my account. Since GW prices aren’t too much, you can both by me some new Dark Angels armies! ;D

      Its true, if you think the cost is worth it, why should you not buy it? And why should GW not charge it? But if people seriously think $65 for a toy that you paint isn’t a lot of money, you should buy me one too! You can make me a believer! For enough purchases.
