FW wouldn't "win" a recaster war if their prices were lower, but if things were easier to obtain (and not just more expensive the further away from Nottingham you get, despite all coming from the same damned factory (US excluded)), then there wouldn't be the need for piracy.


This. What happened when TV was expensive addons to expensive cable packages? Piracy. What happened when pretty much all content was available on a couple of affordable online platforms? Piracy declined. What's going to happen now the online model is being driven back towards the cable model by greedy entertainment companies? It ain't hard to guess.

Same thing with games. Same thing with music. Same thing with models. If there's an affordable and easy to use option available the vast majority of people will pay to use it, and the only "lost sales" you get are people who couldn't have afforded the product anyway and so aren't costing you anything.

There will never be no piracy, no recasting, no counterfeiting(assuming we continue to live in a vaguely free society with a vaguely free internet based on a vaguely capitalistic economic model), but the reality is the extent to which any given producer of "luxury" products suffers from it is entirely within their own control because they're the ones setting the prices and the terms of sale.

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

They just make them in resin. Not great for some pieces (eg I bought some legion outriders and the bike pieces were way to flimsy for me to go to the effort of fixing so I resold them), but most of the stuff you'd want (most infantry sprues for example) are indistinguishable from plastic if they're from a good seller.

Yup. There was youtube vid a while back on how to spot knockoff knight kits, but, frankly, the differences were so slight that it took direct side by side comparison to tell GW sprues from recasts anymore. They're THAT good at this point. And they were in plastic. Not resin kits.

I'm pretty happy with the Ultramarines Contemptor, and I ordered some.

If they did Ultramarines Leviathans that would be pretty awesome, but I am happy they finally at least gave us a Contemptor, and it was well worth the wait!

I'm waiting until there's a Salamander Leviathan to buy one. But the Ultra contemptor does look good.

I'd have called it something like 'he who shoots first shoots best'.

That kinda implies he meant to shoot though.

Really nice models will be my 1st FW purchase in awhile.

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis
