Compared to computer games where the life expectancy is on average 1 month, the 'bangs for bucks' value of GW minis is significantly better in the long term. I for one would love the models to be cheaper, heck who wouldn't :) but I am realistic. To say that 40K is just an exercise in extorting money out of the gaming community is like saying Hollywood makes movies for the purpose of extorting money out of the movie-going public...both cases are of course true. Games Workshop Ltd is a business, not a charity. They produce games and models that I for one enjoy collecting. In order to be able to do so they have to make money out of it...that is not corrupt or unfair, that is commerce. Without profit, there is no growth and without growth there is no Games Workshop.

Sorry to dissapoint you, but the old blisters did contain three models
(with some exeptions like Trygons). I got loads of old Tyranid blisters...
And take a look at the boxes.....I still remember the tome when they
contained ten spruses and did cost only sligtly more tha they do today
(now they contain two spruses).
