It’s no secret that GW charges a mint for it’s stuff. Rather than getting into a debate as to whether they’re charging too much, or they’re simply keeping up with inflation/etc (which sounds like it’s destined to be my next poll, by the way), I decided to compare their current prices to other common goods we use in every day life.
Rather than spring all of the results on you immediately, I thought it’d be fun if we make a game of it. So our poll this week is simple: Take a look at the list of liquid materials and try to determine if it’s more or less expensive than what Games Workshop is currently charging for it’s paint. You can do so using the poll below, or the site-wide poll available on the right sidebar.
No cheating and doing external research! Think of this as a gut check. How accurate are you at gaguing the prices of items? Consider this a tryout for the Price is Right!
Of course, some of the mentioned items come in smaller or larger vials, so to make things interesting, let’s focus on equivalent values. So, the question is: is a gallon of Tabasco sauce more or less expensive than a gallon of Bleached Bone paint?
Frankly, I was a little surprised by the results, as I think you will be too. As always, we’ll keep this poll open for two weeks and then check out the results.
Thanks for dropping by…
