BIG Games Workshop reveal yesterday! HUGE!! (if I'm honest...), was is it you ask: Yet another Primaris Lieutenant of course!
|Who'd a thunk it?|
Its this year's
cancelled con-exclusive mini. Making it available to everybody (for once) rather than just con-attendees and idiots with more dollars than sense who are willing to sell a kidney to buy one off of ebay, is pretty cool in my opinion. To be honest, my usual primaris ranting aside...I even like the model.
This guy might even gallantly lead my Silver Drakes out of the case in which they're imprisoned! To my eyes he looks more like a captain than a mere Lt. given the iron halo gubbins. Thus I thought: what the hell let's order one...
I log onto GW's store, create a new acct. (can't put him in my cart without one) and I haven't ordered from them in so long that my old acct. has been deleted, and okay boom: I'm good to go! Back to the home page, I click to order (by 4/10/20). Orders over $65 get free shipping, however this won't be ready to ship till October, so anything you order with it ain't coming till then either. Skipping the free shipping I see that the cheapest shipping option is another $10, sigh.
Of course there's free shipping to your 'local store' for a convenient pick up. However my 'local' store is 122 miles away in Knoxville. When visiting Knoxville its always to visit family who live on the opposite side of town from my 'local' GW so nix that option.
Adding to the $$$, GW's North American headquarters is inconveniently located in Memphis Tennessee (or 503 miles distant), meaning I get add some good ol' in-state sales tax for good measure resulting in a grand total of:
|Hence the blog title of Lt. WTF?!?|
Yeah, no thanks. Kinda sucks too as I was (for a few minutes anyways) looking forward to splurging for this model.
