Bits, you are amazing at corporate apologetics. If running your own business really makes people this cynical and callous then I sure won't be doing any of the sort.

This "deal" is the standard snake oil/ pet rock/ bottled air type of scam, and exists purely to trick newbies to buy more things they won't use because the pitch is that they are the "COLOURS OF ULTRAMARINES" and thus you will need all of it (!!!) to paint some freaking Ultramarines.

I just hope that there aren't any people left who are that gullible anymore.

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

Snake Oil sales was a scam in that it was a product that was advertised as being a cure when it was not. It was someone actively trying to commit fraud.

Pet rocks and "Bottled Air" are gimmicky novelties that are sold as joke items, both the customer and the seller are aware of what is being bought and sold. There is no fraud involved.

This GW paint collection is being sold as a selection of paints that allow you to own all of the colors the studio uses as standards for the armies listed. It is a legitimate "bundle" and is never advertised as a "deal" or "sale" item. Once again there is no fraud, there is no attempt by GW to deceive anyone into believing they are getting a special price point.

The only people that seem to be deceived by these bundles are the people who lazily expect companies to spoon feed them special prices for buying more than one item at a time.

Seems legit.
