I think they are $50 or $60 for 100 round boxes.

A 50% markup over retail? Ouch!

I'm going to call them to discuss but, it certainly seems at this point that they are making a statement.

It is a scenario game. I don't see anyone complaining about regular paint prices.

Let me put this another way.

Regular paint for the event is $50 for pre-reg and $60 for game day purchase.
Valken Redemption goes for $60 online so, the prices seem fair, if not simply favorable.

First Strikes go for $40 online, so I'm wondering why they are being marked up 50%? I can't speak for any other FS shooters but, I wouldn't complain about a 25% markup (to $50).

I'm pretty sure folks would complain about the regular paint prices if they were marking the Redemption up to $90 a case (even on game day).

And what do you think cases actually cost? Not to mention, some of the biggest scenario/big games in the country have far higher prices. (over 90/case)

Your definition of gouging is kind of laughable. but hey, you can always stay home.


These are scenario games, not walk on affairs. Production costs, field costs, refs, and things cost money. And if you want quality, that costs money too.
