Is GW trying to make me buy their products?

Genestealer cults keep getting better and better looking toys. To think that I scoffed at the 1st offerings and now I have a to-buy list that keeps growing!

Bad company, trying to sell things. Bad!

GeeDubs have certainly upped their game. I was dead against them not so very long ago, but I find myself proselytising in their favour a fair bit these days. I'm even *gasp* considering buying stuff direct from GW Japan :shock:
current (2019) hobby interests
minis
Nurgle daemons for AoS, Ghosties for Shadespire
Magic cards
tribal zombies, Standard, too much MtGA.
Hobby finances
minis: in the black
MtG: So, so red :(

Well, yes, that is exactly what they are doing.

The GSC stuff does look good. I particularly liked the female magos model. Not about to start a fourth army though ….

Yes.

I ah, may have er ordered more ... nurgle stuff. The only thing stopping me from jumping on the genestealer cults band wagon is the fluff. I just can't dig how the ultimate fate of the miniatures you spent so much time and (resources) on is to be turned on by their "gods" and eaten up. I guess it makes it so then you actually have genestealer cults vs Tyranid action and it fits the grim dark setting.

@Mij: Meruhen on the outskirts of Nagoya offers 20% off Japanese retail prices (and are also my go to supplier to get high, I mean buy minis)

I've heard talk, don't know if it's official fluff or just a cool idea, of a GSC some of whose members' self-preservation instinct kicks in, leading a half dozen or so to escape the doomed planet just as the Tyranids arrive - just to start the cycle again wherever they end up because it's hard-coded in their genes and they can't help it.

Also, as the Vigilus fluff shows, sometimes they get flushed out and have to fight long before there are any hive fleets nearby, which is also a bit less doomed.
Feel free to call me Dave!
