Default Worst Units (In a different way!)

So after starting to order my Necrons I have noticed something very disturbing.

On a per point basis is there a unit that costs more (monetarily) than Flayed Ones? Essentially in a pack you get 36 points base.....for $15.00. That's $0.50 per point almost.

Whereas something like a Monolith is 3.79 points per dollar.

Without owning the other codex books and being too lazy to Scribd it all is there any unit that can top $0.50 per point for worst purchase in the game?

For Sm I kind of depends on your loadout and pretty much every unit has a wide selection of upgrades.



current win rates;
csm 3/1/1
daemons 1/0/0

Fiends of slaanesh are 30 points and 15 pounds.. and on top of that they're the best unit in the codex, so you need 18 if you want to do something half decent with daemons.. aaand on top of THAT the models are fugly and impossible to keep from breaking

beat that! =)

I got one for you: Ork Big Gunz. For one with a Kannon you're paying $2 AUD a point and it's a unit that can break VERY easily and run off the board leaving their gun.

Definitely makes me feel better about my purchase! It's so funny that for about 15 years now (from my first Warhammer game I ever played) the cost has all that has stopped me from getting in to the game.

For a few weeks I was wondering why everyone has thought the game is so expensive. We have three armies built for around $250-300 and some nice terrain built.

Then I started building a new army that doesn't come in a AoBR set and now I know what's meant!

Not that I'd ever complain (much). I'll get so much time invested entertainment out of these little miniature men that the expense is well worth it.

My second IG army tipped the scale at $1,500 US in 2006 and was only 2,000pts. ($0.75 per point). It wasn't $1,500 exactly but reached a bit over that, mind you there were no tanks in the army.
