Melbourne Ork and Space Marine player here. I buy through Good Games and Mind Games which somehow manage to be 20% cheaper and 300% friendlier than my closest geedubs. I don't really play much any more because the rules are fucking frustrating (3-4 rolls to determine if a shot kills something? seriously?) but I still enjoy painting and modelling.

>> No.23215059

Imperial Guard, and Orks. In Albury. Using websites, and buying second hand in the area. No local stores stock it anymore. There was a pricing war between the three stores that did stock it, one went under, the other got busted by GW for releasing products before they were allowed, and the third was a Mind Games, which recently closed up, though in the end, it barely stocked any, thanks to GW's war on Small Businesses.

I save money by playing elite armies that are small. I have a dantewing army, paladin army, wraithguard army and a plasma vet army. They were the most expensive.

Melb here. I've been out of 40k and role playing for something like 3 years and I'm starting to get back into it.

Where do folks play around here? The CBD games workshop seems like the staff are ok, but I feel like playing in a GW will turn me into a mouth breather.

>> No.23216502

There are a few clubs I've been to in Melbourne.

League of Ancients meets at a German Club in Windsor once a month, mainly do assorted Historicals but you get some GW stuff there.

There's a club that meets at LaTrobe Uni every Friday that I went to once, they seemed alright.

Mainly though I game at G.R.O.T.S, meets in Eltham every second Sunday, mainly GW stuff but you get some other games sprinkled in.

That's incorrect, they've dropped significantly since mass production really started to pick up.

I guess they don't want to give you those horribly unbalanced rulebooks either.

But warhammer is mass produced too, I guess it's ok the do it then.

Usually mass production involves a price drop and lower quality, with fine cast for example all you got was lower quality and a price hike.

North Brisbane here, Only recently moved here so looking for place to play/club. As for money for plastic crack, always buy online, Combat company is ok for an AU site, but Ebay is where the good shit is at. I snipe cheap auctions or if I'm cashed up then I use US sellers like discount_games_store
Those sort of guys give 20% off US prices, fast delivery and awesome deals, just get a bunch of stuff at once so postage is easier. Also I am this guy, pink nids for life

Realm of Legends in Croydon is petty good. They had to move to a smaller venue, but it's still decent.
