Unlucky weekend (GW Store rant)...

Hey guys,

for the last two weeks, since last visit to the games club, I have been working on my 2000 point marine and my 1000 point nid lists and, of course, dad invites me and my sister up to his place (basically saying get your butts up to Sydney, I haven't seen you in ages). So, my club (and blog) plans were kinda destroyed, so, instead of a battle report I will do a rant on (Australian) Games Workshop stores.
Now, the Games Workshop stores can be useful for going to paint or buying direct products (if you still by normal boxes from GW stores, your doing it wrong). But if you want to get a game in, you shouldn't go to a GW store, you will be noobie swamped. I'm not saying it is bad to have to have a bunch of new gamers learning and playing with a store employee but if you focus on new players and cut off all of the veterans then they will either go out somewhere else or just go play other things (Warmachine, for example) and you will lose all of your gamers. And I don't think any games company would want that. And with new gamers, I having experience with this, will mostly fall out of hobby in a month or so un less they are intelligent and stick it out in the awesomest nerdsport ever...

Well, I feel good that I got all that out of my system, oh, and no matter how much I sound like it, I am not newbie bashing (we all were once!)
till next time,
