There were a few items I couldn't get through Buy For Less Online in a recent order, so I had to get them direct from Games Workshop. Now before I go any further, I have to state that I love GW's settings (especially Warhammer 40,000). The miniatures are brilliant quality sculpts, the background & artwork is fantastic. I like Black Library's novels. However, a while back I realised that (even as a moderately well-paid full-time worker) I couldn't keep-up with the (in my opinion & the opinion of gamers I know) ever escalating prices of GW miniatures; which is partly why I turned to collecting historicals/moderns & using some W40K stand-in minis from other, more reasonably-priced producers. I do wonder sometimes who GW is aiming their prices at, because if I find it hard to financially justify buying a few of their minis every now & again, how do 14+ year-old beginners put together armies & keep the Warhammer/W40K hobbies going?
Anyway, after adding 2 nicely-priced 'starter/bulker' packs of 5 skeleton warriors for Warhammer Quest to my basket, I had a quick scout about for any other nice bits to add to my monster range. "Oh," I thought "Skaven Poison Globadiers at £7.20 for 3. That's a reasonable buy to fill another Encounter Card slot." The page shows 3 models, & the description (& my receipt) says "Globadiers". I should have read a little more carefully, but I simply didn't consier that it could be £7.20 for a single globadier! They're just troops, not even a fancy character! So, a little disappointing, but I guess I'll just make this a Poison Globadier Champion... There's no way I can afford to spend £21.60 on 3 enemies for WQ!
Probably should've looked on eBay.
Also, my PC is also still broken. I'm sorting out a new one. Photos will resume soon!
