By Ben Monro Here it is the second update of my beloved Knights of the Red Blade and just how has my dear force under construction fared this week I hear you cry. Well no doubt I’m about to tell you. It’s been a fantastic week of hobbying, I’ve painted, I’ve glued and most importantly […]
Every once in a while, a moment of clarity will occur in your life where you have to kind of sit back and re-evaluate just what the hell it is that you think you’re doing. For some people, it’s sitting in a bar, completely tossed and chain-smoking Marlboros, realizing they should quit the lifestyle before they become a sucked-up Iggy Pop look-alike.

In this, bit later than usual, episode we have got a good for you.
Mark and I go head to head to discuss if Games Workshop is a good business or not. I don’t think they are a good business because they don’t do enough from a business point of view, and for their licensed products in general (not to mention their lack of contact with the general public). I don’t think they are bad, but they are not good either. Mark says they are because they make money and thus they do what they’re supposed to. But what do you think?
