In this most basic form, there is a ~35% mark up on Solar Auxilia units - and Space Marines have the "advantage" of spending more points on smaller squad sizes (2x 10 Man squads is 15ppm, making it even cheaper), and with access to things like Primarchs (Horus is 62, and 500pts - or ~0.12 per point).

Solar Auxilia just aren't cost effective, when you consider that their tanks are also that much cheaper - basilisks are what? 115-125pts for a BS3 version? There's 0.48 per point, compared to something like a Spartan - which for 101 can hit 390pts - or 0.26 per point.

I've never really looked into it that deeply, but holy shit - a 35%+ mark up for comparative prices? And I thought 30K was expensive enough.
30k isnt for people who are price sensitive, forge world has really always been that way to be fair, if you crack out a calculator before a FW purchase I would say you cant afford it ( I dont mean you directly, I mean in general)

But these are official 30k guard minis , its what people asked for and thats the price, they will sell by the truck load

I'd maybe try to do an elite Imperial Army force to cut down on the models, hopefully their rules ain't like the general guard where for one normal troop choice you need around 25 models and the points for them barely take up a 5th of the force.

I'd ask someone to pick me up one of the Death Guard/XIV Legion T shirts in the biggest size possible, if that wouldn't mean giving money to the empire of evil that is Games Sweatshop.

I'm not really about those shirts. Have seen better fan based shirts on sites like redbubble. GW should think about outsourcing and commissioning designs - however i guess that would mean removing some $ from their grubby fingers.

Make that medium, and I agree with you fully.....

By not selling them online and making them "event only" items they are loosing a lot of potential profit.
