If you buy your kids one $50 mini per month, how many years will it be before they can play a single game?
Long enough to become adults, get real jobs, and buy as many $50 minis as they want. But hey, if you keep the kids isolated from the larger community and never tell them that 40k
is more than a couple of tactical squads on each side maybe they won't know how much they're missing.
When I was a kid I'd save my allowance for a month to buy a single GW
kit, now I'm an adult I save my allowance for a whole month so I can buy a single GW
kit. Hyperbolic, but for a significant time true.
