Every wall in your basement has shelves filled to the ceiling full of GW products. In fact you have more product than a well stocked hobby store. You have every miniature variant possible for ALL of the codexs. You also have every Forge World over priced monstrosity ever made. Many of your miniatures have a 1/4 inch of dust on them because there isn't enough time in a year for all of them to be used in a game.

You swear that 3 squads of World Eaters would eliminate the Taliban and Al Qaeda in less than 3 weeks from the planet. You would then shout, 'Blood for the blood god!' They could do it faster if they didn't have to travel so far to kill all of them. That's annoying. Hmmm…. perhaps a few orbital bombardments would help?

Every few years, in order to keep the game strong, the rules must be changed and army compositions altered. This isn't a moneygrab by GW, no matter what the haters might think. GW loves you and would never want to hurt you. Those yearly price increases are also vital to making sure that WFB and WH40K are financially stable for another four years.
