I read threads like this, all the "oh noes! GW is raising teh prices again!!!! I hate them sooo much!!!" and I think to myself, if it really bothers you that much, why do you keep playing? There have been plenty of expletives tossed around these four pages, and clearly a lot of hard feelings and rage. So quite simply, if this bothers you so much, just stop playing! I mean, no one is holding a gun to our heads and forcing us to buy minis, we are spending our hard earned cash on little lumps of plastic, and we seem to enjoy it. This hobby was the main reason for I got my part time job, and I have several other friends for which it is the same thing. And I accept that, I enjoy what I do and am willing to work to earn money to do it.
But I think you have to ask yourself, if you react so violently to the price raises that you scream bloody murder and suggest that GW fellate you, is this healthy? Maybe it's time to move on for a bit, try your hand at life without GW, and see how that goes for you. Because at the end of the day, they're just plastic spacemen.
