Because people are paying for the popularity of the game and the prices are also based on how powerful a model or unit is in the game. The wild and continued popularity of the game allows Games Workshop to charge more than models for similar games because people keep proving they are willing to pay those prices.
Just the same, how do you store wargaming terrain?
Although, is Warhammer 40k worth?
40k is a premium hobby and absolutely worth it. It will provide you decades of enjoyment. But only if you can spend thousands of dollars comfortably on your hobby. Only if manually assembling, painting, and crafting your army most evenings sounds ok.
How do you store minis?

The main two reasons for why Games Workshop killed off Warhammer Fantasy Battle were first due to the fact that people were buying more models and paying more attention to Space Marines and Warhammer 40k as a whole.
Nope. Pay to win is a term that denotes the spending of money to gain an advantage over an opponent. Magic the Gathering is more pay to win that 40k. However, in Magic, there are a handful of cards that will make competitive deck.
Scarcity. Limit runs of highly regarded books. Since they are paperback, they deteriorate faster than hardbacks so the supply continues to shrink while demand grows as they become more highly regarded.
As for Age of Sigmar itself, I find the game really fun to play. As an old-school Warhammer Fantasy player myself, the game feels very familiar in how it plays out, with the biggest difference being that everything is in loose formation now--no more rank and flank.
