I suppose. I know it'll be the end of my infantry purchases, not that I need any more anyway.
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

Well... you know it will not stop me. The fact is that while core infantry gets a tad more expensive, the elite infantry will still be cheaper.

See this as a test of your prioritying skills! Honestly, how many are not buying stuff just cause it looks cool and because something inside you just wanna make it. I have done it, on many occasions, despite with my economy I should know better!
However, that voice that makes you do those stupid buys you really will not make use of afterwards is the voice of... addiction! Warhammer may not give you the kind of addiction that can be measures physically (unless youre hell bent on inhaling spraypaint and glue fumes) but mind you, your economy, or the economy of your parents, takes the hit.
This is a hobby. For as much as we all like to do this, it is a hobby. GW needs to earn bucks, so they might have to raise prices. Well, what can we do but adapt, stop buying and such.

Warhammer is not some human right. But GW have the right to put what pricetag they want on their products. It was expensive before, and will be still. However, how about starting to plan your purchases? Dont go impulse on all you see if you cannot afford it.
GW even suggest a step-by-step approach to collecting, enlarging your army in blocks. However, the power gamers and tournamenters always discourage this approach, as they discourage any kind of long term theming of an army, because it does not give you the ultimate army for each point level bla, bla...

They are correct. But then, is this game even meant to be played that way, primarily? No, no, and no... Forget that damn tournament winning idea nonsense to begin win! Collect what you find nice, and learn to play with that! In time, you will have a large enough army. But if your idea of Warhammer is to make a tournament winning army first and foremost, I think this hobby is not for you.

Enjoy the adventure, savour the journey! I am much happier today than when I constantly whined and felt pained about how my longtime collected army, when it was finally finished, was outdated compared to the top armies.
But then I stoped worrying and started to love the Empire for its own sake, not because of awesome badass War altars or Steamtanks.

Now, when I get home, I will lay down the law about what we can do to get more out of our money.

Ill be back!
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

Then again, that announcement on the GW site is not very specific. Maybe they are just raising the prices on the things no one buys anyway, such as their paintbrushes.

I suppose some people must. But you can get better ones for less money from an art shop.

I don't trust my nearest art shop.

They are tricksy.

The only one I liked closed down a few years ago.

Art shops are awesome.
I only found this out in September, when I started my art course though.  :-P

Very useful stuff in there.

Art? Ho ho.

I used to do Art. The teacher had a list of pupils he didn't like stapled to his wall.

The rest of us, and the other teachers, called it the Register  :-P

I have Tourettes, so you can imagine me slinging profanity at my cat if it makes you feel better about our clever little exchanges.

Is it odd that I figured Philly was doing this to his cat before I knew he had Tourette's?  Random profanity at anything in range seemed like a perfectly plausible part of the PhillyT household.
The first school of thought is that the ragged-assed Stirlanders, not having two coppers to rub together, nicked it when an elven envoy was passing through the area and had hopped off it to take a pee behind a tree

Art shops. You know, they got tons of stuff that is very useful to the modelling hobbyist. Wanna build your own houses and need material for wall. The art shops got it all. Now, they may not have plasticard, but hard special cardboard and foamboard galore.
Clay of different types, colour to paint it with, sand... etc...

My art tutor just tries to make us do what she likes, rather than what we like.

Hobbycraft is scary. I don't like to get that close to that much decoupage.

Well, Rufus hates so many things his hatred is more or less of no consequence!  :icon_razz:

Hobbycraft is the shit for the true tinkerer!

By the way, BoLS has a fine article on that. Go there!

We do. It is just that Asperger humour is superior to standard humour.  :closed-eyes:
