    “Great value”

    Compared to GW’s insane overpricing, yes, I suppose this is less offensive. However, I’m still not seeing how this hobby will be easily introduced to new players when the entry cost is so very high.

    Oh well, back to eBay and Craigslist to pick up models on the secondary market….

    • crcovar

      Just make sure to do your LGS a favor and don’t go to their store and play. Especially if they don’t charge for table use.

      • WellSpokenMan

        Wouldn’t the store miss out on the sale of soft drinks and snacks? Since two people are necessary to play, wouldn’t they potentially miss out on the sale of the miniatures to the other player?

        • ZeeLobby

          This. My local FLGS has a wide selections of drinks/snacks/dice/terrain/hobby tools/etc. They never enforce any rules on their gaming tables as people buy plenty there beyond minis. Heck I usually pickup a couple MtG boosters every time I go. The FLGS I see eventually shut down are ones that rely on mini sales alone to stay afloat.

          • Urban Bungledorph

            It’s a matter of people actually doing that though, so be sure to encourage your friends to buy those things from your store. Think of the MMO genre where for a couple years people were saying, “I’ll just wait for it to be free.” when the game goes free it means the game failed and everyone lost their jobs. Even now on F2P games people brag about never spending a penny. Why are you playing the game if you don’t want to support the devs? Anyway, ugh, yeah, so long as you’re helping support someone then go for it.

          • ZeeLobby

            Oh no doubt. I’ve poured an unhealthy amount of money into hearthstone and LoL. I know they’re pretty big names, but even they have mouths to feed. What i’ll usually do is make a single model purchase each time I go into the store,

  • WellSpokenMan

    Do we need an unboxing on a repackaging of existing minis? Meanwhile, Infinity has announced a new starter and BoLS has been completely silent. They didn’t even cover the June Corvus Belli releases. If you don’t want to cover the game on the main page, that’s fine, but could you change the tagline from “Today’s Tabletop News” to “Today’s GW News and Commentary with Occasional Coverage of Other Systems.”

    • SupPupPup

      I don’t think many BoLS readers play infinity.

      • Belechem

        BOLS doesnt think it. Wrong! But the Bell Of Lost Souls hangs on Terra in the 40k universe, so….

        • SupPupPup

          Just a guess. I’ve got no stats.

          Infinity is a niche of a niche after all.

          • WellSpokenMan

            In some areas it’s a pretty big niche. Nothing near the size of 40k, but growing awfully fast. I expect it will pass WM/H in a couple of years.

          • SupPupPup

            Yeah, I prefer it to WM. I hope it does well. Though not really my style, the minis are fantastic.

          • ZeeLobby

            Locally it’s bigger than 40k.

          • Thatroubleshootah

            It’s a pretty great game and most of the inch tall dudes aren’t 33 bucks

          • SupPupPup

            Yeah, but I’m not building all that terrain!!

          • WellSpokenMan

            The terrain in the Red Veil pictures is paper and comes with the set. It only takes a few minutes to make. Other paper sets are available for about $10. 2 paper sets plus the starter set will work nicely for a standard 300pt game on a 4×4 table. 2 paper sets (or 1 plus the starter set) is about 32×36 (2 mats together) and works nicely for 200 point games on the dining table. Of course, there are tons of companies making awesome sci-fi terrain, but that’s something you can work up to.

      • WellSpokenMan

        There is a “INF” link to Infinity Articles on the top of the page. BoLS covers the game intermittently, but each article usually gets a few comments. If you are going to cover the game at all, covering the announcement of a new starter seems to be part of the minimum requirements.

    • Xodis

      They accept new writers I believe, can’t force the writers we do have to change their focus.

      • WellSpokenMan

        Larry, Gentleben, Sephyr, and Adam have all covered the game before, so it’s not like it should be hard to find someone to write a blurb about it. Something to break up the GW spam would be nice for those of us that play other systems. I try to give BoLS the benefit of the doubt, but this is a particularly big omission for a site that claims to cover TTG as a whole.

        • Xodis

          Yeah, I think you missed the small print. “We cover all TTG’s as a whole. when we dont have anything GW related to post.” lol

          I just wouldn’t expect much non GW related news from a site called “Bell of Lost Souls”, much like I wouldn’t expect much GW related news from a place called *insert well known Infinity location or item here*

          • WellSpokenMan

            It’s just a bit frustrating. I know they can do better because they have in the past. It’s true though, that I mainly come here to see what GW is up to.

        • DJ860

          Have you considered writing such an article yourself? (serious question)

          • WellSpokenMan

            Yes, I have considered it, but I don’t have the time or credibility to do so. I know from a failed attempt at a blog that it takes a lot of time to properly cover a subject. Even though I play Infinity regularly, but I don’t feel I’ve played enough to cover the game in a journalistic manner.
            BoLS does a decent job of covering the game, when they cover it. The problem isn’t quality of their articles, it’s consistency. A new starter is just about the biggest event a game has. To not at least link the release video and report it as news seems bizarre.

    • mafiacheese

      I’ve wondered the same thing myself (about unboxing videos of existing minis).

      • ZeeLobby

        The unboxing of all these start collecting boxes has been pretty pointless…

    • adamharry

      We did cover the June Releases.

      That was posted on June 6th.

    • ZeeLobby

      Man that new starter is beautiful. My group JUST moved to playing a lot of WM/H, otherwise I’d be so tempted to pick it up…

      • Thatroubleshootah

        If I played either faction I’d buy red viel in a heartbeat

    • BaronSnakPak

      Red Veil looks really nice. They did a few “how to play” videos with Beasts of War on youtube that are great at introducing the mechanics of the game.

  • Belechem

    BOLS can u please show your GW affiliation less agressive?

  • Jared van Kell

    As formations go this one is not too bad. Feel no Pain and It Will Not Die for a turn is pretty darn useful on a Spacemarine, especially if you want to ensure that you hold onto that objective.
