Well I went to watch the Hobbit on Thursday and absolutely loved it and thought it was the best film I've seen in quite some time.
Arthur Dent goes on an Adventure...
Now this got me rather excited about the miniatures game produced by Games Workshop, especially as previous sets were around £30 which would have made a nice Christmas present for myself. How surprised was I when I took a peek at GWs website to find the Hobbit box set an astounding £75!
Miniatures Produced From Solid Gold...
I know its the big film of the year and therefore the must have toy for little Jimmy but at such an outstandingly stupidly high price, I find myself unable to spend such vast sums of cash! Its a real shame as I would love to play the game but at that money I just cant do it!
Its going to be interesting to see how the game goes for after Christmas once little Jimmy decides he doesnt like it...
It seems that its not just the starter set which is astronomically priced either as the Grey Council costs a stupid £45!
I'm not one to usually bemoan companies pricing but I cant help but fume at it on this occasion, especially as it seems to have sneaked into their Lord of the Rings range too with the Dwarf Warriors for example seeming to have lost a few quantity but for the same price as before.
A plus to all this wailing and gnashing of teeth is that its re-awakened my interest in fantasy gaming and I am hoping to do something with the inspiration soon!
All the best!
