    Ugh. This is the episode where I realised 40k isn’t for me.

    If you and GW think that releasing 126 kits for one faction, while others have to use 20+ year old sculpts and have no releases in the same timeframe, I’m not interested in participating.

    Such a shame. I’ve listened to you guys for a long time but this utter nonsense around marine releases is a shambles, and the fact that you defend it shows the direction of travel. So much for ‘new GW’ huh? If they continue to release marines it shows they don’t actually listen to their fanbase at all.

    Utter garbage.

      Lol, did you make the same comment on the YouTube channel?

      As I said there, it’s a hobby and nothing to get upset about, particularly not the fact that someone else is getting new toys. If anything, be happy for them and understand your time will come. It may take longer than you like but it is coming.

      And releasing Marines means they DO listen to their fanbase because that is what sells, lol. They wouldn’t release as much stuff for them if it didn’t sell so well but it does. That is listening to people voting with their wallets which as a business is a smart play.

      In a perfect world would it be awesome for all factions to get equal coverage and releases? Of course. But unlike in a video game where coming out with a new unit is relatively easy compared to making a physical product whose developments costs is really high, it’s simply not as simple as that, particularly if the sales don’t justify it. They could very easily end up losing money and spend a ton of time making something that generates little or negative revenue relative to development cost.

      If us saying that makes you literally want to quit the game, lol, I don’t know what to tell you. That’s more than a little bit of an overreaction, haha.
