    The two old greater deamons there are the epic scale models, and the dreadnaught is converted.

    But still, yes there were crappy models back then, and painting wasnt really all that great, unless you were actualy still a half decent painter and avoiding the bright-colours-for-everything! phase like I and others were doing back then. A lot of them had character though, like more care had been taken in creating them than the somewhat soulless looking models you get now.

    Also, fuck, that new Dreadnaught is well sculpted for sure by my gods its ugly, its like somene shat grimdark onto a brick with legs.

    Iss it just me that finds it odd that teh 'eavy metal team had to actually learn things like highlighting, shading and inking over teh years? A lot of the paintjobs on these old models from white dwarf look really plain. Kind of to the point that I wish i had a time machine so i could go back and give them some painting lessons around 1986 so that the models for rogue trader and such are displayed looking more like they do in the artwork than some of the brightly cartoon-like monstrosities they painted up...

    Cost of minis then vs now.

    Okay, first off let's dispel some myths right now.

    Most of those shown were 1990's stuff. Warhammer 40k RT came out in 1987 but they didn't just release a flood of boxed stuff all at once. It took time to get things going, so look at the 90's and that's where most of the boxed stuff came into play.

    Assuming the buying power of a dollar today is $1.00, the value of a dollar in 1990 -1992 was 1.70 to 1.48 (according to DoTheNumbers.net) or 1.65 according to Measuringworth.com

    So, let's see... a box of 30 plastic marines was right about 15-18 dollars at merlyn's games in Spokane. A box of Harlequins was like 24.99 and the 17 space orks (metal) box was about 20.99

    So, assuming gw were to have multiplied those costs by 1.65. you'd only be looking at $30.00 for a box of 30 plastic beaky marines.

    So, the value of Assault on Blackreach at $60.00 for 50 mini's is about right.
    The reason being is you get rules, packaging, templates and so forth in addition to the minis.

    However, let me be clear about this... AoBR was touted as a huge bargain. Other GW products are WAY outside of their price point based on inflation, and GW in the 1990's was hugely profitable.

    GW pricing is significantly outpacing the rate of inflation, but claiming to be riding the ragged edge of financial ruin. In other words, they are screwing their customer base, charging them more today than ever, and definitely more than their minis are worth based on previous price points

    Dind ding ding... the correct answer.

    GW needs to shed it's bloated and useless management down and leave it's core competencies (the model makers and game designers) alone.

    Agreed. They need to re-organize, fire most of their management staff (you only really need three or four administrative personnel per two hundred employees in a company anyway) and hand product control back to the game designers.

    Redshirts in the United States are required to memorize the GW-NA management structure from their store manager up through Ernie Baker.

    That is currently five levels of management; hobby center manager, district manager, regional manager, retail ops manager, GW-NA manager.

    So let's take Games Workshop Springfield Plaza as an example; the hobby center manager, Bing Lee, reports to the district manager, Mark Bolger, who reports to the regional manager, Kyle Miller, who reports to the retail operations manager, Ed Spettigue, who reports to the director of Games Workshop's North American subsidiary, Ernie Baker, who in turn reports to the larger Games Workshop corporate structure, referred to as 'the group' in internal company training material.

    Can you spot the redundant levels of bureaucracy in this equation? And that doesn't even account for the home office bureaucratic bloat, which makes Games Workshop North America look like a paradigm of managerial efficiency.

Latest products, hell they even had DnD content, it was a lot like the back half of a KODT comic. Now? Now it's a corporate shill that only talks about GW. What happened, guys? GW, you used to be run by gamers and care about your fellows. Now you've let CEOs and Accountants take over. Where did the fun go? The love of the game?

    Okay, now take all that bloat, and start assigning salaries.

    A regional manager expects to make $50,000 a year minimum, and how many of those are there?

    And then add in the district managers, the support staff for them, the IT staff, the accountants at each level, etc etc. Though I'm sure some people serve multiple roles. All that bureaucracy adds up fast.

    And here's the main bit, all those people don't CONTRIBUTE to the bottom line, they are not producing new products, they are not selling, they are not playtesting, they are eating into the bottom line.

    They really need to trim the fat now, this economy will not support the bloated beast that they've become.

    That command group at the top is actually pretty damn good.

    The top two on the right, now thats what more painting in that era should have been. more muted, dirty and less cartoon-y.
    Also, those pink horrors could look a lot better if the arms were hunched over into a more gorilla-like pose methinks.
    A big differnce between now and then though is how basing style has changed form being an afterthought of green flock to something you put a little work into, mixing a bit of brown sand in with flock and static grass. Base up old minis like that and they look amazingly better.

    I sincerely love the old-school 40k with crazy colours, dodgy models and wacky puns.

    It's so much BETTER than it is now. Sure the models are ropey, but they've got a sense of humour. The whole thing feels like a nightmarish futuristic drug trip rather than the cover of a metal album.

    Give me art that's just a wall of arms and skulls and heads and guns with tanks driving over it and one overly-scarred eyepatch wearing focus character in the middle with a skull codpiece or whatever. Give me Marines that aren't afraid to choke a bitch, or Sentinels with Plasma Cannons.

    Give me robots which require programming, and virus grenades, and 3+ saves on 2D6.

    It's better than anything GW make now.

    Horribly inaccurate regarding the greater demons. It's comparing the 6mm Epic scale Keeper of Secrets and Lord of Change to the normal 40k/FB scale models.

    Also prefer the general design if not the looks of the older dreads to the new walking cathedrals.

    And I just like the older orks period.

    Best part of RT days... Races were balanced based on a point cost system.

    Marines were fuckwin, but any race you wanted to field against them was fuckwin too because their shit was point balanced.

    Example... look at the system for creating Dreadnaughts in the RT compendium. (red cover with ultra marines on front) The Orks, humans, and eldar had buildcosts that were all from the same table. So while the eldar might field a super high tech monster on the battlefield, for the same point cost so too could the marines or orks.

    the points system was a bit weak though, but was a damn good idea. It needed scaling up a a decimal place to allow for more variation in prices, as orignially many weapons were just a point or two, not really enough to make much of a difference when you have things like autoguns being superiour to lasguns (32" range autoguns, fuck yeah) yet both were 1 and a half points basic.
    Still, random generation of equipment and a GM made shit fun. And random plot generation, that was pretty good too, since every game should have some back story to it.

    Damn, I wish they'd kept that aesthetic style for the IG. Shit would be so Maschinen Krieger.

    Now now guys , he's at least partialy right about necrons, they are at about 10 years old from their initial "concept model" by now. I remember geting it for free from the cover of a whitedwarf mag.

    This thread has further convinced me that no Warhammer or 40K art or fluff from before the mid-90's is worth more than a pile of shit.

    Believe it or not, that hover tank's still canon.
    It's in the Horus Heresy Collected Visions book.

    Man, I loved that tank, the think was a right old workhorse for carrying a large gun to where you needed it, more reliably than lesser armoured skimmers. Also looks straight out of 2000AD, like most 40k things back then. They missed out on not really featuring it when they re-did vehicle construction rules.
    I'm also amazed it didn't make it to the original Epic models, would have loved fielding a large unit of them, I could see them being quite useful in that scale, with area to move... Oh well.. can always stat them up for Dirtside 2 if I could get a few converted.
