One Man Stores

On hearing the news of a Battle Bunker was being converted to a one man store, I was already to write a long post on game retail and opportunity costs and what not.  But really what is the point.  GW corporate does not read this blog.  I doubt any of you guys out there love the one man store concept.  The hierarchy of games stores is Friendly Local Game Store >> Multiman GW Store >> Single Man GW Store > Generic Retail Price Game Vendor > Nothing.  You might be able to fiddle around a little with that based on how you define stuff like a local games store that sells at retail but is very supportive probably drops in right next to Multiman store.  One Man Stores are just an example of GW not seeing the Forest through the Trees.

My posts from the past 2 days are way more interesting:

Getting the GW You Deserve


  1. That's a bummer, man.

    After 25 years I ditched GW a year ago and haven't looked back once.

    Okay, you got me: maybe I still have Space Hulk. Like I'd ever get rid of that!

  2. Thanks for the comment. I guess the great thing about metal and plastic miniatures is that you can put them away for years and then take them out and they are pretty much the same. Sure the design might be outdated and the detail not as high as the current ones but they still work but that is not even always the case. I think many of GW blood bowl miniatures from 2nd edition produced 2 years ago were far better than anythng they produced since then.
