I want to...but I can't

So I took a break from painting for a bit after the Trollblood Scrum Painting Challenge II.  Not a complete break mind you but I was not pressed to sit at the table for a while.  What painting I did get done was just a model here or a model there.  It was a nice break from the day to day push on models.  That being said I have plans to go to the Colonial GT on March 1st.  I was going to put together a DA/IG army for it but after looking at what I have versus what I need I came to the conclusion I don't have the necessary funds for updating my DA, nor the time to get them painted up and ready.  Which leads me to the reason for this post.

For the longest time I have been staving off accepting this notion, but I can no longer participate in Games Workshop purchases.  Now this isn't some statement of protest where I refuse to pay cause it's not right (I have had that feeling for a while).  This is a statement of fact.  GW models have become way to expensive for me to justify buying, even from discount retailers.
