Default Another GW victim

It is a sad day when a another long term veteran has to give up on his hobby, but that is what has happened to me. GW prices has forced me out of the one true hobby I love.

Thank you GW for killing off another veteran. For me to continue would mean spending 10 thousand Aussie Dollars and more just to keep up.

However i'll continue to add my two cents worth from time to time.

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I feel your pain. I want to support my local bricks and mortar store as I really like the manager a great friendly person, and I play at the store whenever I get the chance. but when for instance the new space marine codex cost $90au I brought mine online from England for $70au posted. the only things I can remember purchasing in store were paints and thousand sons upgrade packs.

it is just to expensive to buy the stuff from GW. e-bay is how I've managed to stay in the hobby competitively.

What do you absolutely need for a 10K australian dollars cost ?

As a "veteran", I came back into the hobby for less than 1/10 of that cost spread upon 6 months (plus what I had in stock, of course ... prices from GW seem more a difficulty for incoming players to me) ...

I can understand what the OP is saying, if you compare the cost of items in AU$ (or even worse the NZ$) to those of the rest of the world you would see the cost of the hobby gets very expensive paying the GW prices.
for example
$90 Space Marine codex (to update to the latest)
now if you take the two demi company formation for free transports so, $55 for each additional rhino, razorback or drop pod.
and you have spare points left over because you aren't paying for transports so you might need to add some more Marines so $65 for a tac space marine squad so it adds up fast .

maybe $10000 is a bit dramatic but you get the picture.

His whine is more of the same thing he has been ranting about for years now. I honestly thought he stopped playing long ago. If I had thought it was a 'quiting HO thread' I would have curb stomped it.

Yea, goodbye forum is bad, goodbye hobby is okay but this is really just goodbye gw.

And I can completely see where he's coming from. Prices here are getting beyond ridiculous. I remember when a tyrant was $60au and now they are over a hundred.

I've been treating this like a long term hobby, and it helps but it does feel like I'm not really participating at times.
