I play with four friends who are all newer to the hobby once a week or so. I just use the stuff I have already (which is a lot. Over 5K points of Marines and 3K of Daemons) and we have a good time. Mostly though, I play Starcraft 2 and League of Legends in my spare time these days. Both are cheap in comparison to 40k.Do you still play Katie or have you moved onto other systems?
I agree but unless there is an existing index, how would you do that? At least with CPI to the Tactical Marine pack you wouldn't have to deal with something that wasn't as difficult to measure.I would like to see a graph comparing price increase against model quality, now that would be interesting!
Yep, seen that:biggrin:
I know loads of vets that dump huge ammounts of money every few months so the idea that vets don't spend much is imo a load of crap. Almost every vet/regular is playing warmahordes atm and has done so solidly for 2 months since a new FLGS opened here in sheffield (which i work at, yay for staff discount!).I think the huge problem is that they don't give a fuck about us experienced hobbyists, because we tend to spend little and often, while little timmy might come in twice a year and spend hundreds in massive splurges. it saddens me, even 4 years ago it was never like this.
Yeah, I honestly think that in a few years GW is going to have a serious problem on its hands in the form of competition from other companies. Games Workshop is big and they definitely dominate the market, but if they keep pissing off their customer base while other companies continually churn out similar quality product at significantly cheaper prices I can see it becoming a real problem for them. Time will tell I guess.We've sold tons of PP stock to our vets (£1000's worth) and majority of the GW stock sold (which is still significant mind) is almost all to people who we hardly ever see in the store. However those people are asking for us to give them intros into dystopian wars and/or warmachine, so were seeing more and more convert to other systems and people are loving it.
Honestly, I'm in much the same boat. I was living in the EU for four years and the prices were bad enough there but once I moved back to the US, I just didn't have the coin to keep buying GW stuff frequently. So I spend my time between slowly painting my Flesh Tearers and Tau and playing League.
