Tourin' Tuesdays - Screamin' Heretic's Finecast post
Now that the recent wave of GW hate has subsided a little bit (yes, I did say a little bit), I thought it was time to openly discuss some issues that people have with GW, and in my opinion how to handle these concerns, and negativity when it comes to our hobby.
A while back, GW once again decided to raise thier prices, to which I provided my insight. I love this hobby as much as most people (according to my wife, even more than most.), and I am not ashamed to admit a certain respect for GW as a company. Being employed there on 2 separate occasions, gave me some insight. More importantly however, it gave me life-long friends that I can share my hobby with. Now before I sound too much like a fanboy, allow me to defend myself a little. I said I respect GW, I don't agree however with most of their business practices.
That being said, I will say with some authority, that GW has been looking at making their complete line plastic for quite some time.
And from a business standpoint, it makes a lot of sense. (More profit for one) Now, I could divulge how much profit GW makes on some of their box sets, but 1.) I don't want a lawsuit. and 2.) You would probably be more upset about pricing than you already are. and 3.) That is not the point of this blog or article...
