Again using that video he talked about what additional he would add. He talked about cost effective adds versus straight up power pieces. You are looking at an additional 230 to 400 in additional prices. Even with my Cygnar army and I go use my most expensive list as my second list which is a stryker1 double lancers, stormwall, arlan, jr, squire, and charger is additional 340 bucks(I deducted pieces that crossed over) for trolls I would go beast army for my 2nd army which would be an additional 250 to 300. The total price total for that Ultra marine army can range from 670 dollars (going cost effective pieces) to 810 bucks for 1 army. With the cygnar armies I used (which were the 2 most expensive lists I had) you have 716 dollars and for trollbloods (a faction that is notorious for being expensive with little crossover) 717. So you are either saving 47 dollars to play an army that may not be the best at tournaments but enough to enter to an army that is almost 90 dollars more expensive that may provide you with better results due to them being power pieces. You want to talk about interchangeable pieces? Add in my old Haley2 double lancer build and its additional 40 bucks or maybe Jarl's heavy metal H2 build which would be an additional 50 bucks. I'm still not reaching 800 price tag and yet I got 4 list builds with cygnar.
So yes, my point does hold water because I am able to construct multiple lists and still be at or under the price tag for 1 damn 40k power list. So your statement of "PP is ludicrously expensive by comparison" is a very silly statement of someone who believes the narrative versus what is actually true. Also keep in mind and Yes, I am basing this on the bloggers very rarely you continue to play the 1 list in 40k through tournament after tournament. Chances are you making a totally different list to play (whether you want to be competitive or just excited about making another list) so that means you are adding in another 700 dollar price tag.
