Games Workshop. The name that most War Gamers know and, sometimes, rightfully dislike. Their bizarre pricing model and their love of swinging their brand names like a cudgel has given them a love/hate relationship with many an enthusiastic War Gamer, old and new.
To that end, you can understand why one would
think the commercial powerhouses Zenimax Media and Bethesda would want to make people pay through the teeth for a Fallout line of miniatures. Hell, I certainly expected it. Well, that might not be the case if one Steve Hanson is to be believed.
Steve is a moderator on the official Fallout Wasteland Warfare forum. His information might not be accurate, in fact it could be entirely wrong. But, for the sake of intrigue and discussion, we will assume he knows something that we don’t.
In a brief, and ongoing, exchange with forum users on the subject of pricing, Steve may have shone a light on what you can expect to pay.
Forum user DCP said, “…[sic]i think a GW price range would be a good default to base everything on” to which Steve responded, “You can expect the price to be less than that company that [sic]gors by its initials.”
I only know one major Wargaming company that goes by it’s initials. The big GW. If the prices for Fallout Wasteland Warfare are lower than what you would expect to see from GeeDubs, then that’s only a good thing.
So, what do you think? Will Fallout Wasteland Warfare be more affordable than GW products? Will we be buying units in groups of three? Five? Faction sized boxes? If you want to discuss things in the comments, then go nuts. I’m not here to tell you what to do. You do you, buddy.
[Note – GW have been doing a lot better recently, the Warhammer-Community website is a step in the right direction. Rebranding/remaking some of the older games has opened up a great many doors. Keep up the good work GW.]
