That's not good Gav! ;-)

Did we really have a glut of 40k? I can't remember that far back!

I suspect part of the issue with AoS boredom is that GW have launched Faction A, then Faction B primarily. Notice that many other games try to launch with 4 factions because that's what they believe you need to create good hype. Yes, AoS already has some legacy factions, but from a marketing and hype point of view they don't count for anything.

Also, Faction A is (IMO) completely uninspiring, so whilst the models are clearly popular (judging by their frequency in online painting groups), from a gaming point of view it's just "more Space Marines, yawn" - mean hell, the 8 Orders or whatever are a completely unsubtle reskin of various SM Chapters anyway.

I've been away for two weeks and the amount of stuff out now (and the price of some of it) is to much to quickly. I already feel overwhelmed by it all....
What, no image sigs!

The prices of the sigmarines is eye watering, especially the new floaty + hammer guy.
