At the beginning Flames of War was a really expensive system for everyone. But since so many casters have produced their own ranges of a large part of the vehicles or miniatures required to play the game, the whole price of beginning to play with this ruleset have gone down.

In the grand scheme of things models are cheap, and I'm including BF and GW in this. I think model painting only has reading books as a rival for a couple of quid keeping you busy for an entire weekend which doesn't include playing with them but the thing for me is the difference between paying the cost and being taken for a mug and BF try to take you as a mug.
