Uh oh.

Sc,
What trend are you seeing in the pricing model that supports this?
I suspect that if GW saw an opportunity to capitalize on that level of tournament player investment they would be all over it. If competitive players really had that sit if power and represented such a destabilizing force on their supply chain I think GW would be feeding it not poopooing it.

But I don't know that there is any data to really support that there is "pressure" being exerted on GW by the competitive scene to produce flavors of the week.

We DO know there is constant (economic) demand from players for new models to paint and use, and there is pressure from a business standpoint to keep producing and selling to meet shareholder profit expectations. But I don't see players deeply involved in the competitive tourney scene abandoning the hobby because there aren't enough new and over powered units/armies scheduled to come out.
