Why people balk at the cost of GW games is beyond me, yet no one is
bothered by paying $40+ for some computer software. (How many people out
there have all the Warcraft and Command & Conquer and Doom/Quake/Duke3D
titles?) I don't think it is not the cost so much as the effort put into
painting the infantry that has people upset. Some people do clean off all
the mold lines and put more than one or two colors on the little buggers.
Which can be a rather time consuming process.
