80 dollars for ten bits of plastic, 80 dollars. This is beyond laughable, beyond ridiculous, its pure greed. And it must stop. GW only gets away with this because people pay for it. So i ask EVERYONE who reads this blog, or this post, to boycott GW, stop paying stupid amounts of your hard earned cash for bits of plastic made in China.
Now i understand people who enjoy GW game systems and want to continue with them, i am one of them. So i implore you to buy from alternate sites, give companies like Avatars of war , Reaper , Gamezone, Scibor and Mantic your time. These companies respect you as customers by not charging stupid over the top prices for what are, at the end of the day, small bits of moulded plastic.
I know that for myself, i will never buy another GW figure until they lower their prices. I will buy their rules books (i really have no choice there), but i will not pay their stupid, greedy prices until they change. Until next time.
Now i just wanted to add to this post. What Rex and I are doing is actually a very common trend among people here in NZ. In my group of regulars at the club none of us are buying from GW. We have the models we have left but all we will keep buying their books as its necessary. For example another common trend is to increase the price and halve the models in a box. Dire Avengers are a recent example.
So its not just an online trend of people just saying it, it is happening especially amongst the older gamers but it is spreading. Hopefully soon we will see an end to things like this eventually from GW.
Cheers guys and our next post will be a little project we have been working on which will be fun, until then...
