About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

  1. So why switch from Metals to Resin if its more expensive? Or is this just another attempt to gouge the hobbyists for more money?

  2. Wow....so, gw saves THEIR cost, and increases ours. Nice. Their entire marketing and business team needs to be fired. What part of supply and demand don't they understand.

  3. the problem is they own the supply and people are demanding it. I would say they have a pretty good grasp of things.

    As a newb getting into this Im now rethinking about purchasing a starter set and any other models to go with it for my son and I. the big draw was for us was the the metal miniatures that we could collect play with and paint, sure they were expensive but they were metal castings so it was ok. Now to find that most the line will be moving to resin which is cast using the same molds, yet is toxic when inhaled when sanding or cutting it I think it is safe to say we will head in a different direction.
