So I'm just getting back into the hobby, but I'm not a dummy per se and I've done my research before hand. I chose Bretonnians because I just plain like the fluff/models/aesthetics.
Anyways we have a new GW store near me and I went in to buy the army book even though I have it on PDF. I then bought some Knights of the Realm.
When I went to pay me and the staffer started some light banter about the escalation league that was starting and that I was going to enter as some motivation to paint and also to network with some other wargamers, etc. The following is the dialogue.
"Make sure you bring your rulebook...do you have a rulebook yet?"
"Not yet, but I'm in the process of getting one."
"Process?" -Inquisitive look of confusion-
"Oh man that hurts...Ebay doesn't pay my bills and it doesn't help local stores either..."
-Awkward silence as I hand over my credit card-
He didn't say it in a mean way, but it was one of those passive-aggressive tones you know? Where he's faking a joke but the real meaning is seeping through. Is this kosher? I mean I know he has a job to do and everything, and yea his store is evaluated only on product sold but I just dropped over sixty bucks and half of it was for something I had for free already (which I told him on my previous visit and he covered his ears and said "Ahhh I didn't hear that"). I'm not trying to be the bad guy here, but maybe I am?
Anyways, now I'm worried about bringing in some non GW minis to play with in the store because I'll get similar treatment. It's not my fault that a Dark Sword Cersei makes for a way cooler and way hotter damsel than the GW mini that has 15 pounds of hair.
Am I in the wrong here?
