Well well ... 74 bucks for a rulebook? 123 for the "gamers" edition?? GW is going off the deep end on their pricing. For the first time since I've been playing GW games I'm going to take a pass on a new rulebook release for either 40K or WHFB. I shall be waiting for the boxed set ... and if that is overpriced (I doubt it ... I assume it will be a nice loss leader as usual so I'll probably be in for a few honestly) I'll skip it too and just make a photocopy of a friends or something along those lines. Evil I know ... but I'm just done with outrageous pricing. I don't care if the book is 1000 pages and finely bound in acid free archival quality paper ... that price is entirely unjustified. The cost of printing on the book can't be more than $25.00 and I'd be surprised if it was even that high.
I am very much looking for more competition in the mini game marketplace. GW has risen its prices to the point that now for sure there should be plenty of room. At those price points ... even a rube like me could compete ... if only I had some capital. But so many others are already jumping in ... like I've been harping over the past few months ... Viva La Revolution!! To Mantic and to Wargame Factory Plastics!!
