It is hard to tell, but I get the impression that it is the look of the models rather than the price that has got your back up. Would you be objecting to the price if you thought they had been designed better?
They are $90 down here, so thats $180 (about 92 GBP) before they become usable as min squad size is just woe full. Old price was $126 for a full unit.
For a comparision, DA's are $110 for a full squad, primaris are $98 for a full squad, a wraithknight is $125 a start collecting box of Primaris is a $165.
0 chance of me paying that much for them, even if they were really useful in game. I happened to get mine via someone splitting out the massively over prices boxset lol.
I love my Eldar, but I have to source them outside from my local store, and I'm not in the minority on that account. The prices are just pushing people to wait for the boxsets splits or hitting the 2nd hand sales. Without a local store, the gaming side just fizzles out.
In all honesty, I'm looking at sending my $$ to Star Wars Legion, units prices are much, much more reasonable (I can support my local store), the rule are not being thrown into chaos every few months with new releases dont have rules that are blatantly obvious game breaking just to push a sales drive. Plus I still get a lore I've grown up with.
