Having come back to the game after a few years away one big difference that strikes me is the cost of miniatures. Is it just me or are the prices getting a little crazy? I appreciate the fantastic detail that goes into the new models these days but still, they are not exactly cheap.
Perhaps it seems more so since when I was previously into the hobby I didn't have five kids to feed lol (surely I can get one or two of them down the mines...). Living in Australia probably doesn't help either. I've found myself recently starting to troll ebay and surfing to find overseas stores to limit the damge. For example, I picked up three boxes of Night Gobbos on ebay for $25, whereas in Oz the retail price is $50 per box, so $25 vs $150...ouch. Also, I'd love to get my hands on the big Spider, but retail price here is $96, whereas I can ship it in from the UK for a little under 2/3 that price. And paints at $6 a pot??
Does anyone else feel my pain?
- Hi Folks, I've been playing Warhammer Fantasy from early days, although have just gotten back into it after being absent for a number of years. This blog is to record thoughts and experiences from amongst myself and friends. Personally, I am currently working on Orcs & Gobbos and also have High Elves, Skaven and a few Warriors of Chaos. Amongst the other chaps we have every other army covered. We are not die-hard competition gamers, but enjoy the game for the social aspect as well as the hobby side of collecting and painting.
