At the moment, I'm away for work and currently sitting in my hotel room chilling out before I wander down to the bar for my tea and a few beers. I was a little disappointed with my hotel when I first booked in as it felt a bit like a nursing home, but over the last few days it's grown on me. The staff seem friendly, I've had a very nice nights sleep as the bed is nice and comfortable, and plus it's a golfing hotel so I've been able to while away a few hours on the driving range. My co-workers have done nothing but moan. One who moans for the sake of moaning has complained about everything, while the other has strange eating habits and had a moan when the hotel staff got confused about his food order (like expecting them to cook something last thing and bring it to his room so he can eat it around two in the morning when it's all cold and soggy).
Anyway, what I'm really getting at with this post is some comments I've noticed about the new toys GW are bringing out in a few weeks. Look at the following picture...
Three plastic Bloodcrushers. Seems innocent enough as the models look very nice and being plastic means they will be very easy to assemble and convert. Now bearing in mind that GW charge £18 for one metal one, we can expect to shell out £32.50 for these three models. So I can have one metal one for £18 or three for £32.50. Seems quite a deal to me as each one is £10.83 (roughly), while to have a similar amount in metal would cost me £54 and each one would be identical. Now I don't want to state the obvious but the plastic ones seem a very good bargain. Yet I have seen people complaining about the cost for some strange reason. I don't know if it's because it's plastic or something else but I just can't believe people sometime. Yes it's an expensive hobby and GW do mess up sometime by charging something silly or whacking prices up for no reason (well no reason to us the consumer), but just as often they come out with some fantastic kits at a affordable price.
Anyway enough ranting off me, the bar is calling!
