40k: Games Workshop has lost its [hive] mind

I should probably not write while I'm angry. I should wait until I've calmed down and assembled an articulate, organized, in-depth study on the topic. I should also quit drinking so much Mtn. Dew and get outside more.

I should do a lot of things.

It's bad enough that Games Workshop raise their prices every year. It's worse that they have decided to cut off half of the planet from ordering their products.

The straw that has broken this camel's back is the new Dark Eldar Haemonculus GW has just put up on Advanced Order.

I don't care about the new line of "Finecast" models replacing metal figures - it's just resin (cheaper for them to make, but they're going to sell them for more).

Okay, fine, whatever. It's a jerky move, but I was willing to see how things turned out ... But to try and sell A SINGLE model with NO OPTIONS WHATSOEVER for almost $20.00 !?!? My kustom Haemonculi looked cooler and cost way less to make.

Screw you, Games Workshop. I'm done.


  1. YAY! join the rest of us fed up 40k bunch and play Malifaux instead.

    No really... its amazing

  2. I'll have to look Malifaux up - I'm not familiar with it.

    A friend has been talking up Warmachine, and I know a lot of the local 40k players have moved over to that system.

  3. warmahoardes is pretty fun to. I just like the story (and many different mission schemes) better in Malifaux (well... and the card mechanic).
    To be honest you may like the PP game better. I would check out both. The rules and most of the first books mini cards are on the Wyrd website, and I bet you have a bunch of minis and a deck of cards. so why not try it and get your friend to show you WM.
